BOOK REVIEW- The Princess & Her Bodyguard (The Cinderella Escape Book 2) by Mindy Neff *

 Contemporary Romance Small Town Romance Romantic Comedy

Book Details

A house full of babies and a very brawny man…

After narrowly escaping marriage to the wrong man, Raquel Santiago flees to a beautiful little village in France to regain her independence—away from the strict protocols of a princess in training. She should have known she couldn’t hide forever.

When unrest befalls their country, Cole Martinez, head of Valldoria’s Royal Guard, vows to protect Raquel and her virtue, to never leave her side—despite the heiress’s protests. But he didn’t bargain for baby-sitting duties to boot!

Raquel’s small country home isn’t big enough for her, her baby photography studio and her bodyguard—especially one as sexy and infuriating as Cole! He is always underfoot, watching her, touching her…How can she ignore him when the tough man held a baby so tenderly?
   3  STARS

This was a sweet, charming, not real deep but clean romance story.  
It was nice to see Raquel come into her real self once she has escaped from the rigid protocol of her Princess life.  She has some serious skills when it came to her photography.  And the babies add a touch of whimsy especially when  Cole gets unwillingly dumped into the mix.
Cole is used to being in charge.  He gives an order and it gets followed.  He mistakenly believes he can do the same with Raquel.  He learns differently pretty quickly.  She's fought too hard for her freedom to just give in and go home.   
 There is some humor, attraction and a bit of danger that happens towards the end.  It also has Raquel trying to practice seduction skills on Cole.  Which has Cole running for the hills as much as he can.  He's a man of honor and sees no future with Raquel. 
There is a sweet H.E.A. with a quick peek into Book #3 which features Prince Anthony.  He appeared in this book and was quite an ally to and for Raquel.   He was the laughing, almost like a brother that Raquel never had.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
