Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time Summary

When a modern princess falls in love with her bodyguard, a royal fairy tale turns dangerous.

ONCE UPON A TIME, there was a beautiful princess. Flicka von Hannover lived an enchanted life. She jetted around Europe staging charity events with friends, had married a handsome prince in the most spectacular royal wedding of the 21st century, and should have lived happily ever after.

But then she found the handsome prince in bed with a duchess. And then a coffee shop barista. And then her own goddamn secretary.

Finally, the beautiful princess had had enough of the cheating prince, and she ran away.

The prince didn’t want to let her go. He couldn’t take his throne without her and sent henchmen to take her back to the castle. Her worried royal brother sent people to look for her, too.

The prince threatened her. He said that if the princess contacted her brother or any of her friends for help, he would kill her brother and her brother’s new, pregnant wife.

So the princess ran to the only person she could trust, a man who was frankly not a handsome prince.

Dieter Schwarz had been Flicka’s bodyguard for years. He had protected her from assassins, kidnappers, and high school dates who got too handsy after a few drinks. He was a sharp-witted, sharp-jawed, hard-muscled former Swiss Special Forces operator who had started his own private security firm, Rogue Security, and had no past that he spoke of.

No one knew that he had been her first lover and had broken her heart.

And he’s the only person who can save her.

Book Reviews


Fun Princess Tale4 star

A little odd and disjointed, but so good!45


Detailed fluff (cotton candy writing)2 star

The general idea and plot of the book is good, but most of it felt like fluff. Every tiny detail in the book was described to death; nothing was left to the imagination. I skipped literal pages of descriptions and when they finally got to the part I wanted to read about the book was over. They did better writing the summary than the actual book. I felt like the summary was taken and added to way too much in order to make this book into a series. I won’t be purchasing the second book in fear that I still won’t get to read the plot I was originally intrigued with.25

Not impressed. It started out extremely slow and progressively got worse.15


Not a good read1 star

This story went on forever. The only reason I continued to read the story was because I paid for it.15

This crap is exactly like some other crap I read a few months ago. I wouldn't have gone for this in middle school, yet it's being marketed to adults. Ewww15


Once upon A Time5 star

I enjoyed Flickas story. Blair writes such exciting books. All of her characters are jewels; can’t wait for Flickas love to continue. U have purchase all of her books on the characters associated with the Rock Band! Good for you Blair!55


Absolutely love this book5 star

I have patiently waited for Flicka’s story and I was not disappointed. The added icing on the cake was Dieter. Without giving away spoilers, I’ll just say, you have got to read this book. This was a powerful beginning to this new series and I am gladly hitching a ride.55


Wanted to Like it2 star

But it ends on a cliffhanger and the pacing is off. I love stories about royalty and she did a good job with the world building but too many things made me stop. Not going to buy the next books.25
