The IT Girls series has given us some outstanding books filled with adventure and action. The final book in the series (for now) lives up to its predecessors. Bulletproof Princess has nearly non-stop action as the Gotham Roses close in on the Duke and his criminal activities.

Chloe St. John found herself in the middle of the investigation when her fiancé turned out to be one of the bad guys. Chloe was kidnapped and in the events that followed, her ex-fiancé was killed. Now she wants to put the episode behind her and find the rest of the crime syndicate. Not exactly what you would expect from an Astorian princess, but typical Chloe.

This part of the investigation is the most unsavory - white slave trade - and Chloe and her fellow Roses are in the most danger. Disguises don’t help when dogged society reporter Rubi Cho spots them on the wrong side of town. As the plot thickens, the two men that Chloe needs to trust are butting heads, each one portraying the other as a criminal. Who is lying?

This book, more than the others, focused on the action over the romance. It is not a bad thing, though, as readers plunge into the danger along with the heroine. The conflict between Jack Quaid and Harrison Howell is a key element in the story and intrinsic to the outcome. Romance will have to wait.

I really enjoyed this series, and am glad that I had the opportunity to read each novel in sequence. While they are all capable of standing alone, when teamed together, they make a cohesive unit that will entertain any reader.
