Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka “His Royal Hotness,” is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant―hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.
Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.
Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be. There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately―the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia―Nicholas is worth it.
Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.
Sigh… This was such a great read!
Royally Screwed is a Cinderella story about a manwhoreish prince who was used to getting his way and the first girl that puts him in his place and makes him work for it. It was exactly what I needed: sweet, sexy, not overly angsty with fleshed out characters, funny banter and great chemistry.
There’s a lot going on for both Nicholas and Olivia besides their budding relationship… one they start with an expiration date but that soon changes their hearts.
I think I’m still sighing after Nick… I mean, he starts off as a completely entitled a-hole, cocky jerk. As we get to know him though, his life is not as easy as it seems. When he finally begins to act on his heart’s feelings, well then he is not only hot, sexy and great in bed he’s also sweet, considerate and just plain perfect.
Olivia was selfless and sweet. Taking care of her baby sister, a drunk for a father and a struggling family business is almost more than she can handle. Throw in a wickedly handsome guy who won’t take no for an answer and you get one really sassy girl who will put even a prince through his paces.
I liked how Royally Screwed didn’t turn out exactly as I was expecting, I mean, it kind of did but in a different way that I would have guessed and I really appreciated this.
I laughed and I snorted, I may have even cried a little. I was totally invested in every character we got to meet and I can’t wait to get my hands on the next one in the series. This was such a fantastic choice as it’s a great mood lifter!
