Erin: Cinderella had it easy. I'm lying to millions of people, and it's all Silas's fault.
Yes, that Silas. Billionaire, prince, scandals galore, downright royal bastard - everything that screams run. If only it weren't for his rock-hard edges and wild tattoos, tempting anything female on all seven continents.
But I don't care about his looks. Really. Our deal is simple. He needs a pretty little lie, a wife to cover up his dirty deeds. I need a fortune to buy the treatment that just might save my father's life.
Silas: It's almost perfect. An engagement with an American girl, desperate as she is beautiful. Anything goes with Erin, except one rule: Her body's off limits. She's joking, right?
I convinced her to wear my ring, easy. I'll get her clothes off next. Show her what the world's most infamous player does when he's on fire. Then I'll move on. No more playing castle. I'll have my princess with benefits on her knees, treating me like royalty.

"Highly entertaining.... Another wonderful Nicole Snow read." (Musings From An Addicted Reader)
It just wasn't my cup of tea. the story was sweet but all too fairy tale with too much samey sex,
it got boring sometimes less is more.
"Royally Ever After!"
I'm a fan of Nicole Snow's biker series, so when I noticed she had a new contemporary romance released in audio, I had to give it a try and download it. Prince Silas Erik Berington lives up to his reputation as a playboy and has earned the titles Prince Hung, Prince Scandal and many more. He's arrogant, good looking, full of himself, and all the women around him want to fall into his bed hoping to be the next princess. Even with his character flaws, he realizes his bad reputation is putting the monarchy at risk.
Erin Warwick and her father travel across the Atlantic so her father can interview the Prince. During the interview, Mr. Warwick collapses in front of everyone, and Erin rushes on stage, trips and falls right into the Prince's arms. Catching Erin in his arms, they have a brief moment where they connect, but her father is soon rushed to the local hospital where he receives some grave news.
After the interview, the Prince starts to devise a plan to improve his image in the public's eye, and keep his "real" lifestyle out of the limelight, and what better way to improve your image and show stability than a marriage. Well, a fake marriage at least, and he knows the perfect person to propose to, Erin Warwick.
Erin's desperate to ensue her father receives the best care, and the Prince's offer is her best option, so she agrees to be his fake princess, and soon a contract is drawn up. Erin insist there's a "no sex" clause, but from the moment the Prince proposes the fake marriage, his desires for Erin grow, and he uses all his charms, dirty talk, and "gifts" to get Erin in his bed.
The narration by Isabelle Gordon and John Lane was great! John really delivered on Prince Silas's arrogant personality. I would definitely listen to either of these narrators again.
Prince With Benefits was a really good story, with lots of drama and steamy sex scenes. I'm glad I took a chance on this story, and will be on the lookout for future audiobooks by Nicole Snow.
"A Prince of a Story"
Erin is a American girl who goes with her father to a interview billionaire Prince Silas, but when her father becomes ill during the interview, Silas decides she just the type of girl he needs to help rehabilitate his playboy image. What starts off as an exchange of services, she agrees to marry him and he agrees to pay for her father's experimental medical treatments, ends up to be so much more and no one is more surprised the Prince!
The premise of this book is hardly novel, but the writing and narration make this audiobook a nice way to while away some hours.
"LOVED the story!!"
The hero was different from any price, but I Loved it. Both of the narrators was great. The male (John Lane) narrated voice was sexy as hell and I could listen to it all day long.
This book was ready very stupid , it took everything I had to Finnish this book
"SUCH A DISAPPOINTMENT - NO PRINCE CHARMING HERE"
Well I just wasn't prepared for Prince Silas Erik Berington... or should I say Prince asshole - because (IMO) there was NOTHING about his character I liked. He was a conceited, self-absorbed, pompous, entitled, manipulative, one and done manwhore with absolutely no redeeming qualities at all to his one dimensional character. And I also listened in utter disbelief and incredulity as Erin (the err heroine) dreamily gazed up at Prince douche bag then melted in his arms in awe at his perfection... while her Dad was lying unconscious, possibly dying, on the floor.
I understood why Erin accepted Prince Hung, Prince Scandal, Prince Playboy's indecent proposal but I couldn't understand why a strong grown sane woman, whose Dad was battling Cancer continents away, would very quickly became a pathetic doormat and let Prince smug jackass take her virginity whilst promising her nothing at all. Yes he was handsome, sexy and a dirty talker but IMO his character flaws seriously outweighed his sex appeal. In the end he did become a one woman man but it was way too little way way too late for me I'm afraid.
Worth a credit? No and a total waste of mine - the characters and story weren't a good fit for me but just because I saw nothing but Zirconia - you may well see Diamonds. There were certain parts to this dual POV farce of a story that just seemed ridiculous and there were surely scenes missing... or hey maybe I just fell asleep!! Lots of hot sex, foul language, a hero with a constant erection, dirty talk and dirty thoughts. The Prince and his fellow countrymen of Saint Moore all have posh English accents and I wouldn't have finished the book if it hadn't of been for the great narration by both narrators. Sadly, this is one book I'll be returning asap - and note to self... stop judging books by their hot covers.
"Needs a new voice for the Prince if he wants benefits!"
I've enjoyed several of Nicole Snow's books, but this one not so much. The story was thin. The performances by the narrators particularly Mr. Lane made the thin story even worse. For most of the book he sounds like he has a stick stuck up his arse, which gets old by the 3rd chapter. At one point when he is trying to flirt or be sexy he starts sounding like Austin Powers. Yeah baby! It makes me wonder if the author has listened to this book, because I can't imagine her thinking his voice was what she heard in her head when writing him.
Very disappointed with this one. Nicole Snow's biker books are much better and the narrators sound more like the parts. I think the producers or whoever forgot this was a romance novel when hiring John Lane as the Prince. There was nothing sexy about his voice at all. If fact they should have just let Isabelle Gordon read the entire book. Her male voice was more appealing than his was throughout the book, minus the last 30 minutes. Yes at that point I stopped listening because there was no way this book was going to redeem itself in the last chapter. Didn't care how it ended just happy to end it.
