HE BOUGHT A WIFE. I BOUGHT INTO MAKE BELIEVE…
Cinderella had it easy. I’m lying to millions of people, and it’s all Silas’ fault.
Yes, that Silas. Billionaire. Prince. Scandals galore. Downright royal bastard.
Everything that screams run. If only it weren’t for his rock hard edges and wild tattoos, tempting anything female on all seven continents.
But I don’t care about his looks. Really.
Our deal is simple. He needs a pretty little lie, a wife to cover up his dirty deeds. I need a fortune to buy the treatment that just might save my father’s life.
Match made in hell? Totally, and I’m going to make it work.
No, I’m not stupid. I’m not getting played by this billionaire prince. Forget his banter, his charms, the rumors I’ve heard about his ridiculously over-sized…ego.
What’s that phrase he teases me with – Prince with benefits? Not in a billion years.
Yes, I’ll lie for him. But I swear, my panties are absolutely, positively not melting every time I imagine his kiss…
It’s almost perfect. An engagement with an American girl, desperate as she is beautiful. Anything goes with Erin, except one rule.
Her body’s off limits. She’s joking, right?
Charming any girl I want into my bed doesn’t mean a thing when there’s only one on my mind.
I want Miss Make Believe. My fake, sassy, sexy fiancee. She, who says ‘no,’ and makes me so obsessed I’m about to trade in my designer suit for a straitjacket.
I convinced her to wear my ring, easy. I’ll get her clothes off next. Show her what the world’s most infamous player does when he’s on fire. Then I’ll move on.
No more playing castle. I’ll have my Princess with benefits on her knees, treating me like royalty…

“Prince With Benefits” A Billionaire Royal Romance by author Nicole Snow.
***I received an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review***
After reading the blurb this was a story I wanted to read. There was a mix of reviews, some positive and many negative as well. I wanted to read this despite the low ratings because I often like what others don’t. And vice versa.
This story features an arrogant billionaire prince who was beyond spoiled. Talk about entitled! Silas was a real jerk and admittedly I didn’t like him for most of the book. There was a couple of moments I actually considered not finishing this novel. Not only was Silas unlikable and conceited but the first part of the book was slow.
Erin started of a strong character; she had gumption and clearly was unimpressed by the rich, handsome prince. But sadly, she too quickly became a pushover. Saying one thing…doing the opposite. But Silas needed her. He had to clean up his wayward image and Erin would help make that happen. Silas made Erin an offer she couldn’t refuse. She would marry him and in exchange, Silas would take care of her sick father, financially.
The premise of this story had potential and I would have liked it better if the H/h and secondary characters were more appealing and relatable. I really did have an issue with how Silas talked about and treated women in general. Even when he was with Erin, falling for her, he stilled used some crass names to her that made me cringe. Yes, he said those words in the context of an endearment but, still….
This story had the typical jealous, ex-lover involved that added angst to the story. Serena was a handful and I hated her, of course. But in the end….she got what she deserved.
The last third of the book made a abrupt turn. The pace picked up, I became more invested in the HEA, and I was satisfied with the end. I liked that Silas “grew up” as well as truly understand what was important in his life. In my eyes, he redeemed himself only as well as an arrogant, crude, billionaire prince could. And because of that last third of the book, I was able to rate it as a whole an honest 3.5 stars.
Although I didn’t love this book, I definitely didn’t hate it either. Nicole Snow has many other books out and I want to read another. Her love scenes were erotic and if you love a dirty talker…Silas is definitely your man. There was no lack of smut here…
