The Princess Trap is the first book I've read from Talia Hibbert and I'll be reading more. I loved the body positivity, the dominate male who isn't an alphahole, and the steaming sex scenes.
Cherry is a delight. A large, Black woman who uses her curves to devastating effect, yet remains insecure beneath the lip gloss and bluster. She craves to meet a man who'll stand against her feminine wiles, so when Ruben fits that bill, she's very interested indeed.
Ruben loves control, but despite being a dominant man in a romance, he isn't a complete tool. Sure, he makes mistakes and has moments of arrogance, but doesn't everyone? He's incredibly caring towards Cherry, making sure that she's comfortable with the light bondage and that's she's okay after their more, ah, enthusiastic sex sessions.
My only complaints about The Princess Trap is that Ruben's brother Harald is something of a pantomime villain, with no insight into why he behaves as he does, with my second issue being over the formatting. Getting irritated at capitalised He and She after a sentence of dialogue might seem petty, but I couldn't help myself.
Overall, The Princess Trap is a sexy story with a fabulous heroine who'll stay with you for some time.
