HELLO FRIENDS, MY GIRL GRACE IS DOING THE REVIEW FOR OUR THE PRINCE AND HIS BEDEVILED BODYGUARD AUDIO BOOK REVIEW TOUR SO LET'S TAKE A LOOK:
Series Title: Paranormal Princes
Book #: 1
Author: Charlie Cochet
Audio Release Date: 12.26.19
Narrator: Greg Boudreaux
Length: 3 hours and 18 minutes
Publisher: Audible/Coffee and Chaos Productions LLC
Genre: Paranormal Shifters
Being a fierce predator—not at all adorable, despite my graceful stature—the last thing I needed was a bodyguard. Especially a wolf shifter, whose presence alone was an insult to my princely principles. As Prince of the Ocelot Shifters, I prided myself on my infallible feline instincts, uncompromisable dignity, and flawless fashion sense. If having a canine follow me around at all times wasn’t bad enough, I now faced the most important moment of my entire life. The time had come to prove I was worthy of my crown. If only I could find a way to get rid of the pesky bodyguard.
When the King of All Shifters asked me to guard Prince Owin, I admit I had no idea what to expect. Cat shifters tend to be a little intense, not to mention kinda cranky. Owin was no exception, though he seemed crankier than most. Being his bodyguard was proving to be one of the greatest challenges of my life—but not nearly as great as convincing him there was something special between us. When Owin is faced with a perilous quest to prove his worth, I was determined to keep him safe, even if the same couldn’t be said of my heart.
I REALLY REALLY LOVE THIS COVER! NOW FOR GRACE'S REVIEW:
This is a truly fun and snarky adventure for two very different men, quite literally feline vs canine. It encompasses the wonderfully sarcastic personalities I’ve come to expect from this author, as well as the romance and a hard earned HEA. As a novella, this is the perfect length for a short trip or working while listening. And having Greg Boudreaux as the narrator means their voices match their personalities and character extremely well. Owin is definitely prickly and an MC you come to love during the journey, with his walls initially built high so no one can hurt him. As his quest continues, he starts to let down his defenses and you realize he is not nearly as conceited as he seems. Grimm is a steadying and constant force for Owin, and knows they have the possibility of more but doesn’t expect it with Owin’s disdain for canines. I truly enjoyed this story, meeting Owin and Grimm, the King and his ‘advisor’, and seeing some unexpected but wonderful friends from another series. I’m looking forward to getting the next in the series! If you haven’t read/listened to this book, it’s definitely one to grab!
Definitely deserving of the 5 Luxurious Bed Rating! Poor Owin and Grimm so deserved a bed by the end…

“What the—” Grimm dropped the orb, and we both jumped back. To my utter disbelief, it spread upward and sideways until it was roughly the size of a large doorway, a forest appearing inside. “Hmm. What do you know? A portal that will take us where we want to go.”
How cross would the king be with me if I accidentally pushed Grimm off a cliff? Or left him with the Cù Sìth? Not like he didn’t have plenty of wolf shifters. What was one less in the grand scheme of things?
Grimm narrowed his eyes at me. “You’re not leaving me behind.”
How did he do that? “Are you sure you’re not a seer wolf?”
Grimm didn’t look impressed. “You’re right. I’m a seer. My curse is that I’m limited to visions of you being a jerk.”
I opened my mouth to respond, then thought better of it. “Can we just go?”
“As you wish, Your Highness.” He bowed and motioned for me to go ahead. Clearly, he thought I was an idiot.
“What if it’s a trap and I step through and burst into flames? You go first.”
“Your generosity knows no bounds, my liege. Fine. I’ll go first, but if I meet my demise, my blood is on your hands.”
I shrugged. “I’ll get over it.”
“So mean.” He shook his head at me and stepped through. On the other side, he turned and held his arms out. “See? All good. Wait….” He gasped and clutched at his chest. “What’s happening to me? It burns!”
“Grimm?” My heart lurched in my chest, and I stepped up to the portal.
“I can’t,” he gasped, falling to his knees. “I can’t….”
“Can’t what!” Oh my Goddess, oh my Goddess. I never expected him to actually burst into flames! I flailed around feeling utterly helpless. “What do I do? Is it flames? Are you bursting into flames?” I frantically looked around. “I don’t see a fire extinguisher!” Not that I knew how to use one. I’d just have to toss it at him and hope he could do it himself.
“I can’t….” He gasped for breath. “I can’t… believe you fell for that,” he said with a laugh.
“I’m going to kill you!” I darted into the portal, ignoring his laughter as he took off, his long legs putting him out of my reach in a heartbeat. “I hate you!”
“Admit it! You were worried about me,” he called out from across the field.
“Worried you’d die and I wouldn’t be able to pry the magic purse off your cold, dead, dog-smelling corpse!”
“It’s a satchel!”OK, NOW I GOTTA HAVE THIS STORY! CHECK OUT CHARLIE'S BIO AND SOCIAL LINKS BELOW, WE LOVE THIS AUTHOR AND I KNOW YOU WILL TOO!
