The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard by Charlie Cochet Audiobook Tour

Prince Owin

Being a fierce predator – not at all adorable, despite my graceful stature – the last thing I needed was a bodyguard. Especially a wolf shifter, whose presence alone was an insult to my princely principles.

As prince of the Ocelot Shifters, I prided myself on my infallible feline instincts, uncompromising dignity, and flawless fashion sense. If having a canine follow me around at all times wasn’t bad enough, I now faced the most important moment of my entire life.

The time had come to prove I was worthy of my crown. If only I could find a way to get rid of the pesky bodyguard.


When the king of All Shifters asked me to guard Prince Owin, I admit I had no idea what to expect. Cat shifters tend to be a little intense, not to mention kinda cranky. Owin was no exception, though he seemed crankier than most.

Being his bodyguard was proving to be one of the greatest challenges of my life, but not nearly as great as convincing him there was something special between us.

When Owin was tasked with a perilous quest to prove his worth, I was determined to keep him safe, even if the same couldn’t be said of my heart.

“What the—” Grimm dropped the orb, and we both jumped back. To my utter disbelief, it spread upward and sideways until it was roughly the size of a large doorway, a forest appearing inside. “Hmm. What do you know? A portal that will take us where we want to go.”

How cross would the king be with me if I accidentally pushed Grimm off a cliff? Or left him with the Cù Sìth? Not like he didn’t have plenty of wolf shifters. What was one less in the grand scheme of things?

Grimm narrowed his eyes at me. “You’re not leaving me behind.”

How did he do that? “Are you sure you’re not a seer wolf?”

Grimm didn’t look impressed. “You’re right. I’m a seer. My curse is that I’m limited to visions of you being a jerk.”

I opened my mouth to respond, then thought better of it. “Can we just go?”

“As you wish, Your Highness.” He bowed and motioned for me to go ahead. Clearly, he thought I was an idiot.

“What if it’s a trap and I step through and burst into flames? You go first.”

“Your generosity knows no bounds, my liege. Fine. I’ll go first, but if I meet my demise, my blood is on your hands.”

I shrugged. “I’ll get over it.”

“So mean.” He shook his head at me and stepped through. On the other side, he turned and held his arms out. “See? All good. Wait…” He gasped and clutched at his chest. “What’s happening to me? It burns!”

“Grimm?” My heart lurched in my chest, and I stepped up to the portal.

“I can’t,” he gasped, falling to his knees. “I can’t…”

“Can’t what!” Oh my Goddess, oh my Goddess. I never expected him to actually burst into flames! I flailed around feeling utterly helpless. “What do I do? Is it flames? Are you bursting into flames?” I frantically looked around. “I don’t see a fire extinguisher!” Not that I knew how to use one. I’d just have to toss it at him and hope he could do it himself.

“I can’t…” He gasped for breath. “I can’t… believe you fell for that,” he said with a laugh.

“I’m going to kill you!” I darted into the portal, ignoring his laughter as he took off, his long legs putting him out of my reach in a heartbeat. “I hate you!”

“Admit it! You were worried about me,” he called out from across the field.

“Worried you’d die and I wouldn’t be able to pry the magic purse off your cold, dead, dog-smelling corpse!”

“It’s a satchel!”

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Adorable. The word is bandied about quite a bit in the story in reference to Prince Owin, but I think it’s a rather apt descriptor for the entire story. Yes, there’s plenty of action and a good bit of suspense as Prince Owin undertakes his quest in order to prove he is fit to rule his people, the ocelot shifters. And I cannot discount the steam factor as Owin comes to realize that he feels far more than the dislike and feigned disdain he heaps upon his wolf shifter bodyguard, Grimm. But Cochet balances all that out with just the right amount of humor and several laugh-out-loud moments woven throughout the story in such a way that I couldn't help but find The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard to be an adorable and delightful listen.

I jumped at the chance to listen to and review The Prince and His Bedeviled Bodyguard without actually reading the description simply because I love Cochet’s writing and Boudreaux’s narration. As such, I had no expectations of the story because I didn’t know much beyond the title and the audio sample, but my faith in the author and narrator was well placed. Not only did Cochet pen an absolutely adorable story of an ocelot shifter prince finding love, Boudreaux perfectly captured both the affection King Alarick and Grimm feel for Owin, as well as the snarky insecurity and huge heart that makes Owin deserving of said affection.

I’m keeping my review shorter than normal because I don’t wish to go into any of Owin and Grimm’s tasks, but I absolutely must say that I cannot wait for the next installment because not only am I looking forward to the next prince’s quest, but I really, really need to know if King Alarick is going to wake up to Jean’s devotion to him. I KNOW there’s something there and I’m looking forward to their story being slowly unveiled over the course of each prince’s story – at least I’m assuming the series will culminate with the king finding the love he’s so intent on his “children” finding.
