Synopsis:Eight years ago, university student Ian Stuart fell in love with his sweet, beautiful classmate and he’s never forgotten her. Sofie loved Ian with all her heart in return, but she didn’t trust him with one little detail about her life she’d neglected to share.
She was a princess, and they could never be together in the outside world.
Now Crown Princess Sofia is in danger. An insurgent faction in her country has targeted the royal family, and while Sofia is visiting the United States, she is forced to go into hiding. Assigned to protect her is none other than FBI Special Agent Ian Stuart.
Once again Ian and Sofie are in an impossible situation, fighting their feelings for one another, while trying to stay safe. Will their love for each other prove to be the most dangerous game of all?

 I received a review copy from netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

This cover is a little different to the other covers in this series and I actually think that it is loads better than the others. I love that it has the two main characters in the cover as there is two main characters in the story so it is more fitting than the other covers when they only had a female on the cover. I feel like the colours are more inviting than the other covers so it stands out over all the others.

For the most part I really enjoyed this book, it was very addicting and I found myself looking forward to what was going to happen next. There was a couple of moments that I felt dragged out a little too long and then other times when it was too rushed. The chemistry between the two main characters Ian and Sophie was mixed as one minute you could tell they where in love with each other and then there was other times when I just didn't understand what they felt about each other. The end of the book was the main area that was rushed as it felt like there was gaps in the story. I would love to have read this as a full length novel as I think that maybe it would have been an amazing read.

I had mixed feeling about the main characters but their was a secondary character that I liked through out but would have liked to have seen him more involved with in the story. Sophie at times came across as this sweet, down to earth girl but she did seem a little annoying at times. Ian was a nice enough character  for the most part but a couple of things that happened put me of his character.

Overall, this was a good novella and definitely the best from this series but because it was a short story I felt like there was a lot of times didn't come across like they could have if it was a full length novel.
