The Princess Trap by Talia Hibbert book review

Hello everyone! Today I here with another review. I was in a semi romance mood, which is new for me because romance is normally a genre I shy away from. I say semi because I only wanted to read a Talia Hibbert romance book. That’s exactly what I did. In fact, I read two back to back. This is the review for the first one.

He’s reckless, dominant, and deliciously dirty. This prince is no fairytale.

Prince Ruben of Helgmøre is his family’s greatest scandal, but the defiant royal won’t change for anyone. He always takes what he wants, and his current obsession is Cherry Neita. The feisty beauty has no idea she’s being seduced by royalty—until they’re caught together in a compromising position. Oops.

All Cherry wanted was a night or two with the hottest man she’d ever seen. Turns out, that man is actually a prince, and now he needs her to play princess. Well, princess-to-be. The deal seems straightforward enough: one year as Ruben’s fake fiancée, and he’ll make all her problems disappear.

But the passion between Cherry and Ruben feels anything but fake, and their connection unearths devastating secrets. Can true love bloom from false beginnings? Or will this fairytale end in a happy-never-after?

First things first: Get A Life, Chloe Brown was my favorite book of 2020. This book here….very close to matching that. Chloe got 5 stars while this one got 4.5 stars. I absolutely loved this. It got me really invested in the relationship, which is the main reason why I stay away from romance because I never feel anything about the relationships. Talia has written her relationships in a way that makes me believe they are real. Like I personally know these characters and am rooting for them to be together or work things out.

Another thing I love about her books are at the beginning she puts an author note. In this author note she puts content warnings. This book deals with themes of abuse. Now I’ve never dealt with any kind of abuse so I can’t speak to how accurate she portrayed it. However, I felt it was done with care. I do not feel anything was glossed over.

Now onto the characters. Cherry is a whirlwind. She knows who she is, and everyone else has to deal. Ruben is worse but in the best way. He is everything the first line of the synopsis says he is, but he has his reasons for being that way. I LOVE them together.

This is technically book 1 in a duet, but they are companions to each. They are described as steamy, and this was definitely that. I am definitely picking up the second to see what I think of it. Talia Hibbert is definitely a new favorite author.

Have you read any of Talia Hibbert’s book? Do you have a favorite? Do you not get on with her writing? If so why not? Let me know in the comments. As always, happy reading 💚
