Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.

He’s not handling it well.

Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him "space"—but while the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After

Oh Prince Henry! After reading Royally Screwed I knew I had to have your book. I had a feeling it would be fun, sexy and down right hilarious! And I was right. I enjoyed Henry’s book so much! He is truly such a character and I loved reading about him.

Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, was used to living a carefree life. As the younger royal son, his responsibilities were low. Until he got plunged into life as the future King. Henry is vastly overwhelmed and not h

➳For the one brother who was forced to take the throne, and the Queen being constantly on his tail, Henry sure indeed finds the best ways to thoroughly love Sarah for her true colors, even through the harsh times that separate their true love and chemistry…

Our lives may not always be fairy tales, but we can experience them in books every day. Some books make us fly, carrying us to destinations unknown, daring us to dream.

Alright guys, I have a confession to make.

The last month has been nothing but difficult. Trying to balance work, family duties and the expiring deadline of my dissertation is rather stressful and consuming, and I've been constantly exhausted, not only physically, but mentally as well. I can't tell you how many books I started only to put them aside because I couldn't find the energy to continue them. As if my lifeforce, which consists mostly of literature, was drained, and all that was left behi

I admit that I was a bit apprehensive after reading the blurb because I'm not much a fan of books that use "reality tv" as a trope. I find them to be tacky usually. However, I was really impressed with how this was used. More so that it felt like a tool to getting the story where it needed to be more so than the focus of it. Well done.

I was eager to experience how Henry would mature and grow, and let me tell you, I was not disappointed. The person who he starts the story being is most certainly

WOOHOOOOO!!! I just read this royally FUN, SEXY, WITTY, and light-hearted new book!!! It was a delightful spin on the bad boy falls for good girl romance with a whole lot of SWOOON and a dash of ANGST to spice things up!! The hero and heroine were complete opposites — he was a party-loving playboy, while she was a shy, quiet librarian who loved to curl up with a good book — and it was so much fun to watch them falling in love!

Another royal road to true love?

Henry is bored and he hates that he has to take the place of Nicholas on the throne. He does not want to be a King. He has always been the irresponsible little brother, the playboy, the one who defied orders and protocol. He loves drinking and partying. The life at the palace is choking him. His grandmother, the Queen, is torturing him. She talks about responsibilities, she makes him study laws and history and she forces him to take decisions for the wellbeing of

Reading is knowledge and knowledge is power; therefore reading is POWER. The power to know and learn and understand...but also the power to dream. Stories inspire us to reach high, love deep, change the world and be more than we ever thought we could be. Every book allows us to dream a new dream.

How can you resist a book after reading that line? :)

This is not my first Emma Chase book and even if I am familiar with her style, I am always blown away by how amazing she can write.. so diverse

Royally Matched is the story of Henry the prince, next in line to the throne. Henry’s brother abdicated the throne for the woman he loves, and Henry has now been thrust into a role he is unprepared for and never thought he would have. With the new responsibility on his shoulders, Henry agrees to a bachelor type tv show where he is to look for the love of his life.

I’m not sure I can tell you how much I loved this book, but I’m going to try. Let’s start with the emotional aspect of the story. Sarah and Henry have been through some seriously tragic situations in their short lives. They both strive to be better people despite those issues. I loved getting inside Henry’s head to understand better why he seemed like such a hot mess in book one. Don’t fear, the character development is extraordinary. Henry more than changes the reader’s perception in this book.

To me, this was the perfect fairytale romance. I liked the first book, Royally Screwed, but I LOVED everything about this follow up. The perfection of how these two worked together was indescribable. They illustrate so well why opposites attract couples can be the best kind to read. Henry's devilishly sexy teasing was such a fitting counterpart to Sarah's

Royally Matched follows Henry Pembrook as he takes over his brother's position as Prince, who will one day rule his nation. The once wild and crazy playboy now has more responsibilities on his shoulders than he ever thought possible. But that doesn't mean he's calmed down any, and his grandmother and Queen has finally had enough of his irresponsible ways so she sends him away so he can have space to study up on what's to be expected of him.

WOW! WOW! WOW! This is like a dream come true. A couple years ago some book friends and I were having a discussion about what kind of stories we’d like to see authors write. I chimed in that I wanted a book like the tv show - The Bachelor. Yes, I watch reality tv so the thought of putting reality tv into my favorite past time - reading - sounded amazing to me. I’m not sure if Ms. Chase got the memo from that conversation but either way, I’m glad she created ROYALLY MATCHED.

This might be my least favorite of the series, but that's not to say it's bad.
I just didn't get sucked in by their story as much as the others.


Again, I'm listening to these (highly recommended because of the sexy voice of Shane East), and I'm listening to them out of order. I mean, I guess I already knew some of the 'spoilers' ahead of time, but whofuckingcares it's a romance - not a mystery/thriller. It's not as though you're on the edge of your seat when it comes to the ending.

Finally I found some time to write this review. Thing is, this book stole my heart and my breath. And without a heart and oxygen, writing reviews can get tricky.

So I'll try to analyze it very logically. Otherwise, I fear it would end up being a ranty rant, with no real order behind it.

Style: amazeballs. Funny, entertaining, but with feelings gliding like undercurrents in every section and paragraph.

I think it’s safe to say that every girl has always dreamed of being a princess and having prince charming worship them at their feet. We’ve all had that moment where we envision ourselves roaming the halls of the palace, having tea with the queen, and rubbing elbows with the high society would’ve been a dream come true for most of us. But when you have an untamable prince with a bad boy persona, I’m on the first flight to the most elite charm school!!
