Publisher's Summary

She claims to hate me more than karaoke and liverwurst combined, and that's before she finds out I'm her new boss...

Yes, Princess Alexandra and I have both been keeping big secrets.

The spoiled royal bit is just our cover, a smokescreen we hide behind to keep our counterintelligence work from the people we love. Being spies, we can't let anyone too close.

But close is exactly what we'll be pretending to be on our first mission posing as lovers. I honestly can't decide which will be harder - taking down a notorious drug lord or keeping my growing attraction to Alexandra under wraps.

And I'm growing on her, too. She keeps kissing me when no one is looking and I find myself increasingly addicted to her lips, her humor, and the sweet side she does her best to hide beneath her tough girl exterior.

Soon, I'm determined to make this fake relationship the real thing.

I don't just want her for the length of this mission - I want her forever, and I'll do whatever it takes.

Nick and Zan are the dynamic duo!

Zan and Nickolas are a dynamic duo. Their chemistry is off-the-charts and the witty banter is top-notch!

Shane East as Nickolas and Lili Valente as Zan were the perfect voices for these characters. Both are consistent in the passionate deliveries for the voice of these characters. They convey the emotions and passion of the characters with ease and made it an enjoyable listening experience.

I love a book with a strong heroine and Zan is an independent female spy that thrives in the field. She can protect herself and think under pressure. Nickolas, her brother-in-law and nemesis, was recently promoted to be her boss. As they work a case together to bring down the bad guys, Zan realizes the line between love and hate is very thin and their feelings continue to grow.

I adore Zan and Nickolas together - they had respect for each other in the workplace but also had this undeniable personal chemistry. They bring out the best in each other and protected each other throughout the story. It was fun to get a peek at Sabrina, Andrew, Lizzy, and Jeffrey's lives as well. Bea was also a fun side character that surprised me (in a good way) with some of her grit later in the story.

I loved this book and series - strong, independent princesses with alpha princes that lift them up and protect them! Another stellar story by Lili Valente.

I liked Nick & Alexandria & I even like them together, but I didn't like this story as much as I thought I would. It just didn't jive for me like the first two in the series. I don't know if there seemed to be more self-speaking or what. It dragged for me.

The narration was good in any case.

Fun royal romance

This was my favorite of the Royals series. Nickolas and Alexandria strongly dislike each other but as they work together those feelings change. They have amazing chemistry together. I love how Lili combines rom com and romantic suspense. This story was interesting, romantic and steamy. Shane and Lili did an outstanding job with the narration.

Great listen

Book 3 and the final book in the Rugged and Royal series. We finally get Nick and Alexandra’s story and it was a great way to end the series. Zan was not a huge fan of Nick and their love hate relationship was on full display. That is until they find out that they are working for the same spy organization and have to pose as a couple for their target and then to their families. But with all fake relationships, their true feelings for each other start to come to light even though they try to fight it. The banter between them was so much fun to witness. Loved taking this wonderful ride into the world that Lili created. She never disappoints and I highly recommend this story.

Shane East and Lili Valente did a wonderful job. They really brought Nick and Zan to life. Great listen. A pure joy for your ears.

Royal shenanigans!

I always enjoy Lili's royals stories. They are fun and filled with sexy royals getting into trouble. These royals add some mystery to the story by working undercover. Add in their enemies to lovers and you have the perfect storm. This story was fun, funny, and definitely sexy with some surprises along the way. Performances by Shane East and Lili Valente were excellent, as always! They work so well together and you really get lost in the story and the characters. This is a great listen for some fun!

It could have been worse....

I don't think it's ever a waste to listen to Shane East narrate a book so I don't hate that I bought this one. However, the storyline is blah and Z is in her head way too much. The author's writing is interesting because at times it's good but when it's bad it's really bad. So if you love Shane East like I do, get the book he never disappoints but otherwise find something else, anything else.

Absolutely Fantastic

Bossy Prince is the 3rd book in the Rugged & Royal Series. Nickolas Edward Xavier von Bergen, the youngest of the three Gallantia Prince and Alexandra Gertrude Renee Rochat, the “fraternal” one of the Rindich triplets have known each other since they were kids. Their relationship throughout the years has been filed with distaste and assumptions about each other. Zan’s serious, workaholic reputation followed her while Nick’s “not-caring” playboy reputation followed him. The thing is Zan and Nick had so much more in common, especially when it came to their jobs. When Nick gets recruited to work as a Spy in the same organization that Zan works for, the two are forced to work together in a secret mission, but also work together in keeping their professions a secret from their families.

I love Lili Valente’s books and this one is no different. I love the first two books in this series and Zan and Nick’s story did not disappoint. The Bossy Prince had a couple of my favorite tribes (enemies to lovers, boss/employee, fake relationship, and more). I absolutely love the way Lili creates these amazing characters who are a part of the same world yet are so wonderfully unique. Zan and Nick were very different than their respective siblings. The chemistry between the two was undeniable. Their witty banter was hilarious. It was like verbal foreplay. They were both so dedicated to their jobs, but while working on a special mission together, the two soon realize that the animosity they shared throughout the years wasn’t animosity at all - it was attraction.

I read the e-book, as well as listened to the audio, which was narrated by Shane East and Lili Valente, herself. Lili has become one of my favorite female narrators. I love the way she gives each character a unique voice that gives them their individual personality. Shane East and Lili Valente have done an amazing job with this series. I can listened to all three of the Rugged & Royal books over and over again. All three books are going to be favorites to listen to.

Princes, Princesses, and Spies!

Nicholas and Alexandra (Zan) are current (and future) in-laws. Nicholas' two brothers are married to and engaged to Zan's sisters. Having grown up together, but in different kingdoms, the princes and princesses are well aquainted with each other. Nicholas and Zan have had more of an adversarial relationship from the time they were children. As grown-ups, they show up for family functions, but lead lives that are mostly away from their families. To both their surprises, they discover they're both spies working for the same company, and Nicholas has just been promoted, making him Zan's boss. When they have to go undercover as lovers in order to catch a drug lord, they're forced to confront their strong dislike for each other. Turns out, that dislike isn't quite as strong as they thought--or hoped.

I really enjoyed this story. Nicholas and Zan fight their attraction until they figure out it's way too much work to deny what's obvious to everyone around them. They were a couple of badass spies who found themselves falling in love--something seemingly more difficult than fighting bad guys.

There are some counterintelligence adventures, but at the heart of this story, as with this series, is love for family. Nicholas and Zan are working to not only protect their subjects, but their family, as well. They're willing to sacrifice time with them, and perhaps some closeness, to keep them all safe. They were so adorable. Of course, you get to see what their familiess are up to, and it's quite a lot.

Shane and Lili do a wonderful job bringing Nicholas and Zan's story to life.

Awesome!

I have enjoyed this entire 3 book series and loved this as well. Three royal brothers falling for triplets is a storyline I haven’t run across before and I really liked the uniqueness of this story. The Bossy Prince, Nick, is swoon worthy and Zan (Alexandra) is a total bad a$$ and a heroine you really want to root for. Their HEA is perfectly satisfying and wraps up the series nicely. Shane East and Lili Valente were fantastic and I loved this story in audio.

Awesome Story & Narration🎧 A Gripping Delight!

I loved everything about this audiobook from Lili Valente’s wonderful writing style to the characters and storylines she created to the fabulous narration. The grabbed my attention right from the start and captivated it the entire time. This is the kind of book that once you start you do not want to put it down because you need to know what happens next. The characters are realistic, easy to relate to and connect with. I adored the two lead characters, the Prince, Nickolas “Nick” Von Bergen and the Princess, Alexandra “Zan” Gertrude Renee Rochat. The two will soon be related since his brothers and marrying her sisters. There is also that both have careers they do not share with their family and lead double lives. Nick still plays off that he is a partying playboy and Zan keeps to herself pretends to work in an office when not working on secret assignments. Zan finds out Nick is being promoted to a position she wanted, not only did she not get that promotion but now he will be her boss. So she is not happy with that and other things about him irk her. His last assignment before starting his new position is working with her, the two will need to pretend they are lovers. Not an easy task since he has always crushed on her but she never reciprocated or so he thought. The chemistry between them is explosive levels so it their love/hate relationship. I loved how everything plays out in this book the story is cleverly plotted with drama, angst, humor, twists and turns, mystery, some action, thrilling & suspenseful moments, heartfelt and emotional moments and a romance that was always meant to be. Lili Valente, thank you for this wonderfully, entertaining story, I loved every minute of it!

🎧📚🎧 And for the fabulous narration, Shane East & Lili Valente are talented narrators and voice artists. They were fantastic at portraying the characters, giving each their own voice and humanizing them while projecting their emotions into their performance. They grasped their character’s persona completely, taking the role and making it their own. Lili Valente played Zan’s role with perfection, captured her strength and badassery. Shane East played the perfect Nick, cocky attitude and all. They were great at covering the roles of the secondary characters as well. They are entertaining storytellers and a pleasure to listen to. Thank you for another awesome listen.
