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.

If you were told that the world as you knew it—life as you knew it—would end in five months, what would you do? You’d make the most of the time you had left, of course. Do everything you wanted to do—everyone you wanted to do—for as long as you could. Until time was up. Well…looks like I’ve got a plan, after all.

Emma Chase writes the male POV like a boss. Anytime I start one of her books, I look forward to reading it because of this. I know whatever she writes will be sharp, f

“The fact remains, the day will come when you will be a husband and a father. You will be a king. What will Olivia be then?”
“Mine,” I growl. “She’ll be mine.”

I absolutely LOVED this book!! It was a delightfully witty, heart-warming, and romantic fairytale come to life! It's the story of a normal girl whose entire world is turned upside down when a real Prince Charming sweeps her off her feet and into a whirlwind love story! It was the ultimate romantic

Our lives may not always be fairy tales, but we can experience them in books every day. We can feel the fantasy; we can live the dream. Who doesn’t want to be a princess? Emma Chase whisks you into a better-than-Cinderella fairy tale in Royally Screwed where you feel that fantasy as you dive into one delicious dream. Alluring and all-consuming, Royally Screwed is a modern day rags-to-riches romance with a sexy Prince and the perfect blend of
'Royally Screwed' is a book that has been on my radar for quite a long time. After finishing a couple of mediocre books and being in a bit of a reading rut, I thought that it might be the time to change it up with something sweet and "fluffy". It ended up being exactly what I needed to lighten the mood.

Nicholas Pembrook is the Prince of Wessco. His sex appeal is only rivaled by his arrogance. He seems to have it all - money, admiration, power, looks.

However, Nicholas knows that beyond the glamo

The Prince and Me just got dirty.

No complaints here.

When it comes to Emma Chase, you know what to expect; a generous dose of fluffiness, with a pinch of angst and a topping of delicious smut. And the cherry on top? A dirty-mouthed, gorgeously wicked yet adorable male lead. With these in mind, allow me to

" And we'll never be royals
It don't run in our blood
That kind of lux just ain't for us, we crave a different kind of buzz

A fantasy it was indeed..Emma Chase and Drew won my heart in "Tangled" and it was an amazing ride for me, and one of my most enjoyable reads, because the lines were so original and hilarious.

3 Stars

A cute, fun and enjoyable read. The writing is great, the characters likeable. But I’ve read too many books and seen too many movies with the “real prince falls for ordinary girl” theme (not to mention one well-known and very true love story) to be wowed. Too formulaic for my taste.

Uhm... I am sorry but I will be in the minority about this book... at least for now... Time will tell...

This is a contemporary Cinderella story with frequent hot scenes in it. Nothing else...
And not the best example of it if you ask me...
I didn't fancy the characters.
The plot was already a cliché: hot and rich prince falls for the poor American waitress.
And the plot twist was frustrating and sort of cliché, again.
Finally, the ending was something too predictable and not to my liking...

"If you were told that the world as you knew it-life as you knew it-would end in five months, what would you do?"

Royally Screwed is the enchanting new story of a young modern day prince who falls in love with a waitress from New York. While visiting the states, Prince Nicholas drunkenly wanders into a pie shop where he meets Olivia, a beauty who doesn't recognize him and spurs his advances. Armed with wit and a sharped tongue, Olivia is at first appalled by the handsome foreigner

Olivia is struggling to keep her mothers pie shop open. Which isn't easy when she doesn't have the help she needs and she's beyond stressed out. So when an arrogant, too good looking, man comes into the shop and suggests she sleep with him for money, she's done. She throws a pie in his face and tells him to get out. So she never would have guessed that he'd return, or that he'd be a Prince with a very serious proposition for her.

Dear Lady, this was so much fun. More than what I thought it was going to be.

I went into this book expecting some light-hearted Cinderella kind of story and so color me surprise when I was half way through to the book and I was drowning in feels. I was so invested in the characters and the story and it was really gratifying reading a good contemporary novel that leaves you feeling all warm and fuzzy after you’re done with it.

Review at Of Pens and Pages

I can't resist love stories about princes and commoners, so the only way you could have stopped me from reading Royally Screwed is to physically restrain me or something morbid––like maybe poke my eye out. There have been hundreds––maybe even thousands––of rags-to-riches love stories, but if you give me a new one to read, I will do it and will most likely love it with every fibre of my being. The hopeless romantic and Emma Chase fan in me could not resist this

This book was absolutely, royally, fantastic! Definitely one of those where I loved every single thing about them and couldn’t put it down, not until I was done!

I’m no stranger to Emma Chase, I read her Tangled series a few years ago and loved it, especially Tangled. She’s amazing at the male POV, her heroes are always so witty, funny and so hot and alpha. Prince Nicholas is no exception, what an amazing hero! Swoony to the max, I absolutely loved him from the first page, right until the end.



Going to keep this review short and sweet.

When you read an Emma Chase book, you just know you are going to get the following: Laugh out loud scenes, relatable MCs, sexy heroes and sweet, spunky, likeable heroines, and a book that’s low on the unnecessary drama and high on the sweet romance.


And Royally Screwed had just that. A prince is who is both self-assured yet down to earth with an awesome sense of dry humor who meets and falls for a waitress who is independent but also a sweetheart. I won’t

I love Emma Chase. I’ve read all of her books and met her a few times. Every time I’ve met her she spends several minutes with each of her fans (regardless how long the lines are), there is just something about her that makes you feel special. So when I realized she was going to write a new series I was all over that.

Royally Screwed is a standalone and is part of the Royally series (YAY for a series. I would be crying ugly tears if there was only one book.) This is Nicholas and Oliv
