Summary

I never wanted the throne....

I have a plan: Find my long-lost brother and make him the prince so I don't have to rule. 

The last thing I have time for is my sexy new neighbor. She's everything I don't want, sassy, funny and...not available. 

That's okay - I'm amazing best-guy-friend material.... Friends? Sure. Anything more? Definitely not.

All I have to do is not touch her, kiss her, or fantasize about...never mind....

It's not like I have a choice. With my secrets, I can't let her find out who I really am. My secrets could get us both killed.

🎧 AUDIO REVIEW 🎧

🌟🌟🌟🌟

BOOK - 🌟🌟🌟🌟
AUDIO - 🌟🌟🌟🌟

It my first book by this author and I enjoyed the story.

Both had secrets and it all comes out by the end. I never realised it a two parts story so moving onto to listen to the next one.

Their chemistry was instant I thought that they where a little back and forth too much of should we or shouldn’t we.

The ending was a shocker so I need to listen to next book.

Cliffhanger Alert!!

Falling in love under those circumstances was only ever going to end badly.... Or was it...?

This has been a gripping listen... And that ending... OMG!!

I had barely taken a breath before I started book 2!

Narration needs no explanation... Royalty for Royalty.... 5*

I need more stars! Absolutely hilarious....

This audiobook is absolutely hilarious. I got quite a few funny looks from people around me while listening. Both Andi and Shane give wonderful performances. #pussydownpussydown had me crying with laughter. The storyline is great and it’s written very well. If you need a hold your belly, laugh out loud book this is for you.

Fun, sexy, and intriguing

This was such a fun story. Penny (Len) is probably the worse at her job, which makes her the perfect candidate to locate and follow her charge—who happens to be next in line for the throne. I love her so much. Her mishaps are hilarious, and I love how she struggled with her job and the secrecy of it. I’ll be honest, her reason for accepting the assignment had me scouring the internet for information of a book for a certain couple, I didn’t find it *insert sad face* if you’ve read/ listened to the book, I’m sure you know what I’m talking about.
Sebastian is a prince on a mission, he doesn’t want the throne and knows just how to get out of it. But that means avoiding his family and guards. He needs to blend in and become the guy next door—and he does, quite literally. He is so charming, I fell in love with him pretty early on. The reformed playboy is always a fun storyline. The way he was with Len was so cute. I loved their interactions. The sexual tension was off the charts. And once they got together—fireworks! This book is fun and sexy and sweet, with a dose of intrigue and suspense. This is book one of two, so I was prepared for the cliffhanger, and good job too because I would have been wanting to throw something lol. A must read/ listen. I already have book two queued up.

Andi Arndt and Shane East perform this book and do so in their usual top-notch way. They always deliver first class performances and make me feel all the emotions that the characters are feeling. Their voices complement each other well. And the production is brilliant. The only issue I had, and it’s just a personal taste thing, is that I was a little distracted by the mixture of accents—it didn’t feel consistent. Hence the distraction. It wasn’t enough of a issue to stop listening or to stop me wanting to listen to the next book, but enough for it to require a mention.

Amazing, Really enjoyed this audiobook

I really enjoyed this book!
This review is for the audiobook.
I loved the storyline, it was unique, captivating and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Sebastian is the heir to the throne, the problem is he doesn't want it. He wants the freedom to do what he wants, follow his passion, and also date who he wants to date.
Penny is in the Royal guard however she is not very good at it. She has no interest in following her families tradition. When the King personally asks Penny to keep an eye on his son, Sebastian, she couldn't really say no.
I loved the characters and their quirky ways. They are unique and I loved how they knew their limitations yet it didn’t stop them. The storyline flowed perfectly and I couldn't stop listening. One chapter turned into 5 chapters later! The narrators captured the character perfectly. As this book is dual POV, I loved how there were two narrators.
I could easily have given this book a 5-star review however, the only negative thing I have is, the cliff hanger.I'm sorry but I can't stand them. Other than that, this was an amazing book and I highly recommend it.

This is what a perfect narration sounds like!

Shane East and Andi Arndt are amazing together! This was probably one of my favorite ever narrations.... East and Arndt together are way more than magical... they were perfect! The accents and voice ebbs and flows like an amazing symphony.

Let me just say, the cliffy was painful here! I'm going to quickly dive into part 2. Sebastien and Penelope had my hanging on by my nails in their fast-paced whirlwind of a romance. The secondary characters are just as fabulous and I wouldn't mind the story continuing with several spin offs.

3.75 Stars

3.75*

A complimentary copy of this on audio was provide to me from Valentine PR on behalf of the author. I volunteered to leave an unbiased review. All opinions are my own.

Royalty stories aren't usually my cup of tea. There's less than a handful of authors I would trust to do them well. Nana Malone might just join that illusive list. This is the story of Sebastian, prince on the run from his duty; and Penelope, inept Royal guard trusted by the King to bring him home.

There's witty banter, twists, turns, lies and secrets galore here and you really should have book 2 to hand because you're going to want to dive right in.

Andi Arndt and Shane East do a stunning job of bringing the characters to life. I always have fun with these narrators.

Cheeky Royal, i adore.

The cliffhanger shock for sure, I loved it so much - I just downloaded the second book on kindle, just to find out what happens next, because November is to far away to wait.

Absolutely hot! I loved it!

Okay, it's a cliffhanger but the story is absolutely well written and flowed so well. I love Nana Malone's writing. It's really hard to listen to anyone else. I've tried after the Ben trilogy, but had to find another Nana Malone trilogy to put me back in my happy place. The fire and passion of Shane East, is everything! The steady and rich voice of Andy Arndt is always a rush. Both of their abilities to narrate supporting characters as well, continue to add richness to the wonderful story writing of Nana Malone.

And let's not forget the sexy hot togetherness of Sebastian and Lynn 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥!!! The parts where Sebastian was trying to talk his raging hard ons for Lynn down had me laughing hysterically deep from my gutt. It caught me off guard Everytime! This book is sexy, funny, banter filled with a little bit of suspense and thrill that's moving me right into book 2. Thanks Nana!🖤

Royally Fun!

This is my first book by Ms. Malone, but certainly not the last. I really enjoyed how the story was constructed and how it moved along. Both Sebastian and Penny are interesting characters struggling with their own issues...but I found it engaging that the struggles both characters had with their families closely mirrored each other, regardless of the social standing that divided them.

I listened to the audio performed by Andi Arndt and Shane East. Both did a fabulous job bringing this book to life!

Sweet Funny Sexy

I absolutely loved the crazy situations Penny got herself into. She claims to be terrible at her job as a royal guard but she is clearly very well trained.
Nana Malone is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. I am so glad these titles were released in audio so we'd all have the privilege of hearing Shane East bring her heroes to life. Andi Arnt is also perfect as Penny. She has the comedic timing to bring the best of romantic comedy to life.
Bring on book 2 please!

Ends in a heck of a cliff hanger but I loved it

I know that this is hard to believe but this is the first book I have read or listened to from Nana Malone but Cheeky Royal was a great book to be my first.
The first thing you need to know is that this ends in a cliff hanger which I didn’t know so you have been warned. This is book one in the Royals Undercover duet and it was entertaining and addictive.
Sebastian is a prince who does not want to be king and in an effort to change his future he has gone looking for an alternate. However what transpires is a story that will have you on the edge of your seat as narrators Shane East and Andi Arndt bring to life this exciting story by Ms. Malone. Penny is a royal guard, along with her best friend Ariel to back her up, she is tasked by the king, to guard and protect the prince without his knowledge.
When circumstances bring them together, the sparks fly and the attraction and chemistry that lies between them sizzles. Shane East is a favourite of mine and he certainly did justice to the character. Sebastian is totally swoon worthy as is the voice of Shane East and he was perfectly cast for this role.
The secondary characters were just as engaging and I cannot wait to see how this story pans out.
Can Penny keep Sebastian safe and protect him from the enemies that surround him? What will happen when the truth is revealed?

Loved it but what a cliffhanger

Audio Review
Book one in the Royals Undercover Duet and you do need to be aware this story ends on one heck of a cliffhanger, one that I did not see coming .....
Andi Arndt and Shane East did a fantastic job bringing the story and the characters to life, they had me hook, line and sinker from the very first page, from the moment their first lines were spoken.
Sebastian doesn’t enjoy life as a Royal so he is trying to run and hide from his responsibility as the prince who is next in line for the throne. Looking to live life how he wants to he sets out to track down his long list brother. Penny has been requested by the King to keep an eye on Sebastian while he is in New York, she is meant to watch him and report back not fall in love ......
This story ticked all my boxes, it’s well written, well narrated, great characters with sizzling chemistry and witty banter and what a lot that cliffhanger !!!! That’s all I’m going to say because you need to read or listen without any preconceived ideas to really enjoy this great story.

Loved it!

This is the first book in the Royals Undercover Duet, the first duet in the Royals Series. I love Royal stories! Sebastien and Penelope's slow burn and forbidden story is well written, fun, sweet, sexy, fast-paced, and intriguing. They are both amazing characters. Prince Sebastien is caring, and handsome. Penny, a royal guard, is a wonderful strong woman, caring, and protective. The supporting characters are great. I love Ariel! Lucas is an intriguing character. This story ends with an unpredictable cliffhanger. Looking forward to listen to the second book in the duet, Cheeky King. I read Cheeky Royal already, and loved it. The audiobook version is amazing. Andi Arndt and Shane East did an outstanding job with the narration. I enjoyed it, and I highly recommend it.
