HATE spoilers! Enjoy HOT, sexy books w/a plot. No vampires, paranormal, teens 4 me. Books outside HOT genre = books given to me to review
This was really slow going. It seemed to take forever to finish.
Media consultant Veronica St. John has been hired to teach a rugged Navy SEAL to impersonate a European prince who's been targeted by terrorists. But one conversation and Veronica knows there's no way she can turn streetwise New Yorker Joe Catalanotto into nobility. Joe, on the other hand, is confident he's got what it takes. Two days isn't a lot of time to get the job done...but it's enough time to fall in love.
I'm not sure. It was so slow but the last hour was very good and more what I'd expect from Brockmann.
On the cruise ship during the final hour was less he loves her/she loves him and more action.
It is the start of a series...I may continue but it is not something I'm excited/cannot wait to dive into.
Others comment that this is an earlier work of Brockmann's-I agree...I'm willing to continue with the series but ONLY if the books are heavily discounted.

It was a typical romance based adventure. If you looking for some heavy revelations this is not the book for you. If you are looking for cute untamable man gets tamed kinda book... here ya go.
I have not. Narration was cute and light... pairing with the book well.
No, but I would totally watch the Lifetime movie on my couch as to further traumatize my boyfriend.
This is great... for what it is. If you are looking for a fun, romantic, light read ... This is your book. If you are looking for substance and huge plot revelations... keep looking.
Yes. It was a great story, a little predictable at times, but a great read.
The characters were so easy to like
She did a great job with jer voice in changing the characters
I continually forget to check out Suzanne Brockmann but when I do she is SO ON POINT! I love her simple sometimes edgy writing that paints a vivid picture! She not brash but sassy in getting her readers to go along for the "reader ride". I enjoy that. I would love a Prince Joe and the way Ms. Brockmann writes this wonderful book, she can make you feel like you get one.
Reading Teacher Recommendations!
If the author had written a new, fresh novel that didn't bore me to tears. It was as if there was some preset guidelines that instructed "Insert royal jerk here" and "Place handsome brooding he-man there" or "This is where the emotional unattainable beautiful woman suddenly realizes that perhaps she could fall in love, but of course it will be with the last guy she thought possible." Sort of a mad libs feel.
I'll admit. I'm not a romance fan. I find them insipid and silly. I THOUGHT this book was going to be more of an action/adventure flavored by an unexpected romance, but boy was I wrong! The supposed action was only there to bring two unlikely characters together who could then have lots of "Oh why doesn't he LISTEN to me!" and "I'll show her how awesome Navy Seals are" moments.
It was fine.
This is an enjoyable, easy listen.
You can't help but fall for the tough Navy SEAL who makes a dying girl's wish to meet a prince a reality. Despite the inner emotional turmoil he feels, he's able to maintain his regal bearing and leave her feeling like she is a princess worthy of any prince's attention.
Joe Catalonotto is one extremely talented man!
the huge differences between Ronnie and Joe
Veronica - she learns a great deal about herself
When Joe Cat walked in and fooled all of them
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Yes, I would listen to Prince Joe again because it was very entertaining with a brief touch on the Seals
When Joe came into the bridge of the captured ship aand masqueraded as the prince.
Overall, not much
No real exteme reaction and it was entertaining
This book is a charming fantasy and the fact that it doesn't have an ounce of verisimilitude doesn't detract from its appeal.
That the hero and the heroine wind up at the end reunited and eager to get married "for ever after".
I thought Ashley Adlon did a good job performing all the characters in the story.
Fairy tales come true.
Since I had so much fun listening to Prince Joe, I am sure that I will listen soon to another book by Suzanne Brockmann.
Say something about yourself!
This book seemed like it should be good but for some reason it just didn't click for me. I think part of it was the narration and accents used. It may also have been that while the premise was a bit different, the 'problems' faced by the couple were far too cliche. Lack of communication, easy (realistic) changes to wording, etc would have gotten them smoothly through their personal issues and cut about 30 minutes off the book's length. I also found it somewhat lacking in the 'sex scene' department. I definitely wouldn't consider this a 'steamy' romance. It did have a good ending and I don't think it was a complete waste of time and money. I'm not sure I'll buy any other books from the series though.
