REVIEW ➞ Twisted Games by Ana Huang


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 princess.
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 bodyguard.
Her protector.
Her ultimate ruin.

Unexpected and forbidden, theirs is a love that could destroy a kingdom…and doom them both.

Twisted Games is a 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.

“I’d rather you hate me alive than love me dead.”


This book. I LOVED IT! I couldn’t get enough of it. Bridget and Rhys are two characters that you can help but instantly fall in love with and their story was full of passion and emotion. I love Twisted Love but Twisted Games blew it out of the water for me. Start to finish this book is captivating and addicting.

Bridget is the princess of Eldorra. Rhys is her bodyguard. I loved that banter between the two of them when they first met. Bridget found ways to poke Rhys buttons and it led to tons of tension between them. I love that Bridget wasn’t just a socialite. She cared about her country, the people there and what they truly want, but she also had a passion for animals. She wanted to do everything she could to help others. Rhys, well I don’t even know if there are words to describe him. The man has walls built up, he has experienced a lot in his life, but he is 1000% alpha male and protective and I couldn’t get enough of it.

There is just so much to love about this story from the chemistry, the passion, the characters, the drama, the steam. It is all amazing! Hands down this is one of the best books I have read this year and I can’t wait to see what is coming up next.

If you’re looking for a forbidden, age gap, royal romance this is one to check out!
