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?

In The Firstborn Prince (Billionaire Dynasties #3) by Virginia Nelson, as an image consultant having no clients means disaster and unless Natalie Stolen can find and help a client that will aid her in bringing in others, she'll no longer be able to do what she does best. So, when Foster Boyd comes to her with an offer she can't afford to refuse, she finds herself helping Foster to save his family legacy and be a suitable distraction for his brother. Yet, the more time she spends with Foster, the harder it is to resist their powerful chemistry. Will Foster and Natalie achieve their happy ever after, or will their past demons keep them apart?

Although I haven't read the first two books of this series, I found this book could easily be read as a stand-alone and I've got to say that it was such a riveting and enjoyable read that I loved from start to finish because of the rules that start off each chapter; the main characters that have such interesting back stories; and compelling dialogue that had me loving the obstacles these two face to be together including the scandal that Natalie finds herself at the centre of. Will Foster be able to make things better for Natalie when she needs him to?

As for the main characters, they were relatable, likeable and I loved these two together, as the heroine was determined to get her way when it came to how she was going to do the job Foster wants. Will she be able to distract Foster's brother, so the hero can find a way to save the family company? Moreover, the heroine is resilient; very good at her job, despite the mess she's made of it and led her to losing all her clients; persistent when it comes to going after what she wants, especially when it comes to her relationship with Foster; and I liked how determined she was to help clean up the Boyd brothers reputations and help get things back on track after the blunder they had with their latest product campaign. 

While the hero, he's confident, smart, determined and it's palpable he's used to getting what he wants, especially in the moment he comes face-to-face with the heroine for the first time. Certainly, he does everything he can to wear her down until she agrees to his plan, even if it isn't in her best interest. I also enjoyed reading the rules the hero had in place to keep himself safe from ever getting hurt. Do his rules really work? Will the heroine be an exception to his rules? Will the hero get what he wants when it comes to the company?

Overall, Ms. Nelson has delivered a wonderful read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was powerful; the romance steamy; and the ending had me loving how the hero's brother isn't afraid to offer his advice to both the hero and heroine. Will either of them listen? Who will make things right between them? Furthermore, I liked how things worked out for this couple, especially when it came to which one of them made things right between them. Yet, it was the epilogue that wrapped things up nicely, as readers discover how good things are going for the heroine when it comes to her career and how good things are going between Foster and Natalie. I would recommend The Firstborn Prince by Virginia Nelson, if you enjoy the enemy to lovers trope or books by authors Naima Simone, Donna Michaels, Sharla Lovelace and Diana Gardin.

                   “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.
