Publisher's Summary

From best-selling author Talia Hibbert comes a story of wicked royals, fake engagements, and the fed-up office worker trapped in the midst of it all.

Cherry Neita is 30, flirty, and done with men. As far as she can tell, they're overrated, overpaid, and underperforming - in every area of life. But a girl has needs, and the smoking-hot stranger she just met at the office seems like the perfect one-night stand....

Prince Ruben of Helgmøre is reckless, dominant, and famously filthy. The outcast royal is rebuilding his reputation - all for a good cause - but he can't resist a pretty face. And bossy whirlwind Cherry's got the face, the body, and the attitude to make Ruben's convictions crumble. Even better, when she propositions him, she has no idea who he really is.

But when paparazzi catch the pair, erm, kissing in an alleyway, Ruben's anonymity disappears faster than Cherry's knickers. Now, the press is in uproar, the palace is outraged, and Ruben's reputation is back in the gutter. There's only one way to turn this disaster around - and it involves Cherry, some big fat lies, and a flashy diamond ring. On her left hand.

Unfortunately, Cherry isn't pleased with Ruben's "fake engagement" scheme...and neither is the king.

Contains mature themes.

I adore Talia Hibbert

Talia Hibbert writes the most charming books. This is one of my favorites and I wanted to re-read it in audio. Cherry is such a punk, and I adore her for it. She gets stuck in a really weird situation thanks to this hot dude who turns out to be a Danish-ish prince and surprise! The royal family is rife with dirty little secrets. Cherry gets allll the skeletons out of the closet and it's glorious. Throw in tons of bi rep, diversity, tropes upon tropes, and banter and you're all set. The audio performance is pretty great, he has a nice voice and a lovely British accent. My only tiny complaint is that the narrator's accent for Ruben varies a lot through the book.
I'm pasting Talia Hibbert's own CW here since it does not show up on audible:
"Warning: this book is 70,000+ words of extreme pleasure and intense romance, ending in a HEA. NO cliffhangers and NO cheating. Enjoy responsibly! Please be aware: this story contains scenes of abuse that could potentially trigger certain audiences."

Amazing book, good narrator, bad accents

LOVE the book! The characters have depth, the story is very interesting, emotional and sexy!
I mostly liked the narrator. I don't totally agree with the choice of a male narrator, but he is very good. He can bring the appropriate emotions in every scene, gives the book the necessary rhythm and allows you to differentiate the "voices". My main issue was with his accents, which are very important in this book, since the majority of the characters are from outside the UK. The Scandinavian accents sound surprisingly Italian... specially the grandmother's voice, that came out messed up!
Even with that, I would definitely recommend this audiobook.

Okay...

Though we'll written, this was kind of disappointing. They know each other for one day, ONE day when the prince declares she is his fiancé to make his family happy and get the press off their back. Only she didn't even know he was a prince and now hates him. But she goes ahead and quits her job to move to another country and pretend to he his fiancé for a year. O..k...

It was a good read

I enjoyed reading the book but what I didn’t like was that on the cover of the book you see a big black woman, but it is slightly mentioned that she has brown or black skin. Or that she is a big woman. Also not mentioned is the race discrimination when meeting the “royal” family and the snide remarks that she lets pass by because she “doesn’t understand the language” but her fiancé understands and doesn’t say anything or come to her defense about it????

I enjoyed the book but it could have been a hell of a lot better had they added to it.

Also I noticed a previous review that the main character sounds like an old man and unfortunately to say, that person was right! I was very disappointed to hear that. If the character was supposed to be an older gentleman then OK, I can go with that. But again it’s not mentioned that he is older.

The sex scenes are steamy, but I wish they would sort through their emotions a bit better when they have disagreements.

The horrible fake Russian-esq accent was horrid

It’s a adult book, lets be honest it’s really all about the steamy scenes, so you get what you get as far as storyline and plot go. Which honestly speaking wasn’t bad. But the narration was Comically AWFUL. The horrid accent made the main male character sound like a 60+ year old Russian uncle. And not like the hip, cool, uncle, but the corny, bad dad joke uncle.

Fun fast paced sexy romp

The Princess Trap by Talia Hibbert
Narrated by Cornell Collins

Passion is real from the start but history and panic lead to a false engagement. They have to wade through the falsehoods to find their happy ever after.

There is sex and scandal and comedy and a bit of child abuse which may not sit well with some but I do feel it was important in the telling of the story. Also the dominance was a bit off putting and it took away from the otherwise great sex scenes. Not my cup of tea but I understand that some like that sort of thing, but not me.

Having said that, I enjoyed the overall story, the characters were well written and I rooted for Cherry and Ruben and their side kicks Demi and Hans. I do wish that Whiskey cat was more prominent though.

The only real hang up I had was the narrators “Danish” accent that sounded more Russian than anything else. I had to keep reminding myself “it’s supposed to be Danish.” However the British accents were very good.

All in all another treat from Talia Hibbert who has the best most charismatic female leads.

I LOVED the story. Thumbs down on the narrator

I really loved this love story. It was beautiful and fun. Made me laugh so much. The narrator, on the other hand, was not great. It just wasn’t the best fit for Ruben and Cherry.

Dirty, mouthy, and yet touching and sweet

I’m not one for romances involving famous folks, be they actors, rockstars, or royals. But, on the strength of Talia Hibbert, I gave this a shot and quite liked it. I love the way Ms. Hibbert weaves in families, diversity, and genuine-feeling people. Cherry is a bodacious bombshell and Ruben a deliciously dirty, growly bad-boy prince. Like all of her books, there’s plenty of sass and fun, but also just enough conflict to make the HEA heartfelt.

Narrator Collins is pretty good, although I agree that his accents were inconsistent and Ruben starts off sounding like a scrawny old man. The voicing settles in after the first hour or so and I found the male narration matched the mouthy, naughty nooky. And, hoo! The nooky is indeed naughty, with consensual bdsm and anything but missionary scenarios.

There are mild storylines of domestic violence and child abuse that could be triggering. However, if you can handle the F-bombs and sizzle that gives this series the “dirty” in its Dirty British Romance label, you should be just fine with all the adult themes.

throughly enjoyed the story, but the accents...

the story however unbelievable was enjoyable in a way that most unbelievable romance novels are. but lets be honest most of us aren't reading romance for novels for realistic portrayals of relationships. for me the narration wasn't unbearable most of the time... that is until he reads a sex scenes and I cringe so hard I pull a muscle. I recommend the book but skip the audio and save yourself from the muscle spasm inducing performance

Talia Hibbert is a QUEEN

Talia Hibbert is a gift and must be protected at all costs!!

I’m obsessed with her work. She shows that humans of any color, creed, size, or background not only deserves love, but should be adored and loved relentlessly.

She inspires me to never settle for less and to find hope in my relationships.

listened in a day

this is just what I needed to switch off and indulge in something to renew my faith in dating and love. As a plus size woman it's refreshing to hear about body positive characters whos body is adored and desired, I needed this.

Amazing from start to finish

This book was absolutely fantastic! I loved Cherry’s and Reuben’s the character development and their relationship. The narrator captured the emotions of each of the characters and added his own flair to the book. Would 100% recommend.

that was pleasantly unexpected

Didn't like the narrator at the beginning but he grows on you. Danish accents are hard tbf.The story is fast paced but doesn’t lack any detail. Very hot scenes. The ending was fine but I would've wanted more for the other characters.

Unexpectedly good

I loved this story so much. It is spicy and a bit like erotic fiction. The themes of love and acceptance were really wonderful. Great narrator as well. I fell in love with the characters. It is a better version of your usual royal family romcom. This is my first book from this author but it certainly will not be my last.

2.5 stars

2.5 stars

Welp, I'm really in the minority here, in that I didn't love The Princess Trap.

I wanted to love it, I really did, but I couldn't

So much so that I nearly DNFd it.

But I persevered and got to the end. However I did skip about 25% of it. The sex dirty talk made me roll my eyes, just no.

I am glad that I went through to the end, as the last, say, 15-20% made the story work it for me

The narration was great, and brought this up from a 2 to a 2.5 star book for me
