Defy (Defy #1) by by Sara B. Larson

Summery (from Goodreads)

Alexa Hollen is a fighter. Forced to disguise herself as a boy and serve in the king's army, Alex uses her quick wit and fierce sword-fighting skills to earn a spot on the elite prince's guard. But when a powerful sorcerer sneaks into the palace in the dead of night, even Alex, who is virtually unbeatable, can't prevent him from abducting her, her fellow guard and friend Rylan, and Prince Damian, taking them through the treacherous wilds of the jungle and deep into enemy territory.

The longer Alex is held captive with both Rylan and the prince, the more she realizes that she is not the only one who has been keeping dangerous secrets. And suddenly, after her own secret is revealed, Alex finds herself confronted with two men vying for her heart: the safe and steady Rylan, who has always cared for her, and the dark, intriguing Damian. With hidden foes lurking around every corner, is Alex strong enough to save herself and the kingdom she's sworn to protect?


4.5 out of 5 Stars Review

I really enjoyed this book, firstly because of the characters mainly Marcel, Damian, Rylan and Alexa. Especially Alexa she is so kick-but she also has some insecurities and things she isn't comfortable with, which was nice to see. There is a lot of mystery in this book mainly surrounding Prince Damian, I enjoyed this element as it meant I couldn't predict what he was going to do next.

I like the ending, it was rounded in a way that if you didn't enjoy this book you could just read it as a stand alone without too big a cliff hanger. I also have to say that I liked the way in which that the romance in this book was left (I will stop it there other wise I may give too much away!).

A really enjoyable fantasy romance and well worth the read, can't wait to start the next one.
