Publisher's Summary

Getting close to an arrogant bad boy like him is dangerous. Too bad it's her only choice.

Kain Badd looks great on paper: rich, handsome, and he's even a prince. But after spending a few minutes together, Sammy sees the real him - arrogant, possessive, and too hot for his own good. If she hadn't agreed to help plan his sister's wedding, she could have avoided him. Instead, she's waking up in his bed after an unforgettable night she definitely wants to forget. But he won't let her.

When Sammy thinks her life can't get any crazier, the wedding is raided by the police, and she spends her first-ever night in jail. The irresistible Kain isn't just bad in name - his family is connected to a dangerous underworld. Now she's mixed up in a power struggle between his family's empire and their rivals. She has no choice but to put herself back in this filthy prince's extremely capable hands.

Sammy must trust Kain to keep her safe. She's just not sure she can trust herself to resist temptation.

Great Romantic Suspense! Steamy and Funny!

This is the first book in the Bad Boy Royals Series. This Romantic Suspense is entertaining, fast-paced and action-packed. The storyline is filled with a suspense, but also a lot of steamy scenes. Some scenes are also really funny. Kain Badd and Sammy share an instant attraction and their chemistry is strong. Sammy is a strong, independent and feisty woman, who cares about her mom. She's also a little reckless. Kain is a bad boy prince, rich and handsome. He's strong and very possessive and protective with Sammy. His family controls the town and they are connected to a dangerous underworld. Sammy get trapped between Kain's family and their rivals. Sammy seems to have no idea where she has set her foot. At first, I didn't really like Kain, but my mind changed along my listening. I like how the author has build this world. The Secondary characters are also very interesting: Sammy's Mom (she's hilarious!), and Kain's Brothers (Costello and Hawthorne) and their sister! I can't wait for the next book in the Series, Costello's story. This was my first listen to Kendall Taylor. She has a great voice. Jeremy York is one of my favorite narrators. He has a sexy and beautiful voice. The narration was well done and easy to listen. I really enjoyed my listening.

Royally Bad is royally cute!

I wasn't sure what to think in the beginning. I was looking forward Prince Charming...

What I got was Bad. 😘 His name isn't charming but in an over the top arrogant playboy way... he is. This is Cinderella's story is a twilight zone.

This cute and often amusing tale kept a smirk on my face and a twinkle of wonder in my eyes. There's enough speculation to keep mystery lovers intrigued throughout.

Story line! Profanity????!!

The story line was good without all of the profanity!! I almost quit reading on several occasions, but I wanted to know what happened. I think this would be so much better without the flying f bombs. It reminded me of a kid trying to curse to impress his friends.

something not said

I liked the book but was left with question of what was the problem exactly between Costello and lulu so I'll assume it will tell in another book. ....

Royally Bad

I loved this book in the context of `Bad boy falls hard for good girl` romances. The family business gave it just enough mystery to bind the romance together. My pet peeve in these romances is that the heroine always wants to get away. It's like they can't put 2 and 2 together to get, I might just get killed or get my family killed if I don't stay put. But all in all, I liked it.

Just Royally Bad

Need I say more than it was royally bad? I can count the number of books I've skipped through or not finished over the past few years using my fingers, and this book made the list. Honestly, I wanted to like it but it felt absolutely unbelievable with unauthentic characters. There were so many moments that just weren't pulled together right. I just cold not relax into the story, and can't recommend it to others.

Painfully bad is more like it.

Save your time and avoid this title. Ouch. My ears still hurt. Painfully predictable and Royally Bad.

A good easy romance

If you could sum up Royally Bad in three words, what would they be?

I enjoyed this book and reading about the attraction between Kain and Sammy. Sammy ends up in trouble after helping plan a wedding and the bads try to keep her safe. This was a good story though was not sure at the beginning as did not feel the connection between the main characters. It did get better though and really enjoyed reading about the Bad family. A good read that I would definitely recommend xxx

What does Kendall Taylor and Jeremy York bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

The audio helped the enjoyment of the book. The different voices helped differentiate in the chapters.
