About the Book

Foster Boyd wants control of the family business before his brother’s escapades ruin their reputation. Since he can’t force his brother out, he needs to distract him–or reform him. Where can he find a woman willing to do anything to save his business?

Natalie Stolen was at the top of her game as image consultant to the stars. But when one of her client’s reveals a juicy secret, the media went on a feeding frenzy, taking down Natalie’s career faster than she could say “scandal.” Now in dire straits, she’s been given an offer she can’t refuse…

But what happens when the woman you hired to distract your brother is the only woman you can’t stop thinking about?

Excerpt

“Do you usually try to manipulate people over lunch?”

His smile was whiplash fast and charming as hell. “I don’t reserve my skills for just lunchtime.”

“Save it, Mr. Boyd,” she said.

He shook his head. “Foster.”

“Pardon me?” She put the napkin back in her lap and grabbed another forkful of the scallops. She hated to admit he was right, but he was. She wanted to eat them while they were still warm and buttery and perfect, a delicious counterpoint to the emulsion, which had a bite of sour, and the unexpected sweetness of the cauliflower.

“If he’s going to think he’s stealing you from me, he needs to think we’re at least on the road to becoming intimate. Which means you really must call me by my first name, Natalie.”

She choked on the excellent scallop and noted it didn’t taste nearly as wonderful when lodged in her windpipe.

My Review

This is the second book by Virginia Nelson that I’ve read and she’s quickly risen to the top of my must-read list.

The Firstborn Prince was a sexy fun read. Foster hired Natalie to distract his brother but ended up falling for her. Both of the brothers had relationship issues because of their parents’ deaths but Natalie managed to sneak past Foster’s defenses. Throughout the book Foster was like-able and even demonstrated some rather admirable qualities, but he still had plenty of room to grow in his love life.

Natalie was a fun character. She was very down to earth, funny, and oh so relate-able – right down to her well-worn jammies and eating ice cream out of the container with her bestie. The rules she came up with for the brothers to get their images on track were a nice touch throughout the book – I loved seeing them at the start of each chapter!

This was a great read – I didn’t want to put it down. I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a light romance that ends with a HEA.
