No Prince Charming ( Secrets of Stone #1) by Angel Payne and Victoria Blue

“Once upon a time, there was a girl who dressed up and went to a big party at the palace. When she was there, she met a prince. They danced and fell in love…” 

Damn good line. Too bad I don’t believe a word of it anymore. 

My name is Claire Montgomery...and I’m not a princess. I’m a fighter. I worked hard to earn my place on the emergency image repair team for one of the biggest public relations companies in the country. We’ve been called to the renowned Chicago headquarters of Stone Global Corporation, where it’s our job to clean up a heap of the Stone family’s filthiest laundry. Our success will be the biggest victory of my career. I’m on my game. I’m ready. 

Why doesn’t “ready” include a contingency plan for Killian Stone? 

My name is Killian Stone...and they call me the “Enigma of Magnificent Mile." That’s just the way I like it. Elite tycoons want into my bank account. Their wives and daughters want into my pants. They’ll all do anything for a piece of the enigma—until a crack in the castle is too huge for anyone to ignore. What they all don’t know is that I’m thrilled about the fissure. Their fascination with the scandal means nobody will look at the bigger secret of the Stone family. I’m safe. 

Until Claire Montgomery walks through my doors. 

Her honesty, her bravery, her humor…they pull me in, a prism against the gray walls of my tower. I’m captivated. For the very first time, I long to shed the enigma. To share my secret. But what the hell will that get me? Even if she fits the slipper I offer…I’m no Prince Charming.

                                                 My opinion:
Killian Stone, a bossy and a very attractive billionaire with secrets that eat him alive. Claire Montgomery, a sweet girl and a fighter with secrets she tries to 

keep hidden.

The Stone family has a big problem. One of the brothers did something very stupid, the whole world found out and now they had to ask for the best PR to help them get out of this situation. Andrea Asher and her team was the best for the job. Claire was working in the firm for a while and she was in the savior team. Everything were great until she met Killian Stone, from a professional she became a schoolgirl, stammering  every time he talked to her. Killian was at a loss for words too when they happened to be alone for a while. The next morning Claire regretted everything that happened the night before but she couldn't take it back. The Stone problem was getting bigger, the senator was out for blood and that made their job more difficult. At the end of the meeting, Killian showed how much he wanted her but Claire pushed him away, she couldn't have anything with him and she knew it. He didn't stay away from her, he just couldn't do it. She was falling hard and fast for him. They crossed the line over and over again, Claire tried to stop it by becoming distant but that made Killian more persistant. They both had feelings for each other and only one of them was brave enough to do the chasing. They gave in to the temptation, they had so much fun, but now that the storm with the scandal  passed, Claire had to go back and Killian was not happy with this. What happened next was a nightmare, she ran away from him without giving him any chance to explain. With the help of his brother he realised that he couldn't lose the best thing that ever happened to him.

I loved this book. Both main characters are amazing and different. It's fun to see Killian and Claire interacting together, either fighting or having fun.  Killian has been hurt by people who were close to him and from a young age he tried to fit in the new family and prove himself. Claire was betrayed and used by her ex boyfriend, that made her very cautious. Margaux is the most manipulating and vicious character i have ever read about, she's ruthless.
The book is well written and very detailed. It has a capturing storyline. Even if you know the ending,the story will still keep you on your toes.

My favourite lines:
1)I raised my hand and slid it against his, thinking if the earth ever had a desire to open up and swallow me whole, now would be a perfect time.

2)“I want you. I’ve fantasized about having you. I’ve touched myself with the force of it. Is that what you want to hear? I’ve wrapped my fingers 
around my cock and pretended to be inside you, instead. And when I came, it was your name on my lips.”

3) “Slide a finger into your cunt, sweet girl.”

4)“Careful, Chicago.” I couldn’t help a huge grin as I evoked our old nicknames.
  “What’s that, San Diego?”
  “Your inner Prince Charming is showing.”

5)Oh—ohhh, God! That’s…that’s…”

  “A pussy I’ve missed very much.”
