She can never be his...but he's taking her anyway.
Stoic, broody, and arrogant, elite bodyguard Rhys Larsen has two rules: 1) Protect his clients at all costs 2) Do not become emotionally involved. Ever.
He has never once been tempted to break those rules…until her.
Bridget von Ascheberg. A princess with a stubborn streak that matches his own and a hidden fire that reduces his rules to ash. She’s nothing he expected and everything he never knew he needed.
Day by day, inch by inch, she breaks down his defenses until he’s faced with a truth he can no longer deny: he swore an oath to protect her, but all he wants is to ruin her. Take her.
Because she’s his.
His forbidden fruit.
His every depraved fantasy.
Regal, strong-willed, and bound by the chains of duty, Princess Bridget dreams of the freedom to live and love as she chooses.
But when her brother abdicates, she’s suddenly faced with the prospect of a loveless, politically expedient marriage and a throne she never wanted.
And as she navigates the intricacies—and treacheries—of her new role, she must also hide her desire for a man she can’t have.
Her ultimate ruin.
Unexpected and forbidden, theirs is a love that could destroy a kingdom…and doom them both.
Twisted Games is a slow to medium burn contemporary royal bodyguard romance. It’s book two of the Twisted series but can be read as a standalone.
Warning: This book contains a possessive alpha hero, explicit sexual content, and profanity.

Plot Summary :
Life has never been easy for Bridget. Being one of the people from the crown family and knowing that it was her family on the throne? Well that made things complicated. She had a nice bodyguard, someone who was her friend but now that was gone too and on top of that her bodyguard's replacement?? Well ..
Things really went downhill when her older brother resigned from the Throne and the next in line was , that's right , her. Now she was to become the queen and she had no idea how to do that. Her brooding hot bodyguard was certainly not making things any easier.
Rhys knew he was here to do a job. Even though the tempting princess made things difficult, he knew he could never give in. She was too much. Guys like him never got girls like her and she was destined for everything great. Then why did he want to ruin her? Make her as dirty as him. He wanted to keep the sweet princess , even though he knew it would not end well. Bridget was his. No matter what she said.
Overall Opinion :
I am not that much of a fan of the bodyguard trope , but omg. This book is literally the top read of mine in this series. And it's not because of the amazing plotline, but because of the added heat that the characters had. All the books have a good plotline but there was just something about this book that made me go crazy. I read them all in one go and never regretted it.
Definitely recommending this one to all the dark romance loving people. Its not exactly dark , but damn the hero is intense. It has all the crazy twists , the heat , and I am sure you all will love it!
