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, fun, and sexy.

“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!

'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.

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...

(I buddyread this book with the amazing Bea. Check her review by clicking her name.)

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook. By the sound of his name you already know your heart is about to pop out of your chest and go crazy. Because he is indeed such a swoon-worthy royal character. And perhaps the prospect of reading about a prince being labeled His Royal Hotness is the main reason why I was drawn into this book.

I liked that the love story takes place over a period of time and it wasn't the type of insta-love and let's ride off into the sunset kind of story. You get to see what goes on behind the scenes in the life of a Prince and his family and friends. The intrigue, politics and scheming in court life felt very real and believable.

And just as I have always known.............LOVE always wins in the end...

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.

Our main MCs are pretty great together and have an amazing, mind-blowing chemistry, it was sexy. I found myself laughing my ass off and cursing and just having a great time.

This book was, surprisingly sexy… but also with some cheap-ass clichés, which the book itself makes fun of and honestly think they would’ve been handled better if the book was longer. It would’ve also helped the characterization of some individuals since I was dying to know more of them and their relationship with Olivia and Nicholas –like Ellie, Marty, The Queen, Olivia’s dad and Nicholas’s Security Team. I don’t know if they will be part of this world in the next books but I was curious about them and sad I didn’t get to know them.

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.

So, this is a modern fairytale, a la Cinderella, but it doesn’t feel dated or predictable, its super engaging and it feels super fresh, even when you think the story has been done many times before. But then again, who doesn’t love a good royal fairytale? In real life, I love the royals, Spain, England, Denmark, Sweden, you name it, I love them all. And in fiction, from Cinderella to The Prince and Me, I love royal movies, FLOVE them, this book reminded me of all those movies I love, but hotter, way hotter, so much hotter, lol!


You know I’m big on not spoiling the book, for this one I didn’t even read the blurb, I was like oh, Emma Chase and royals, I’m in! But in the interest of being a good reviewer, in the words of Colton Donavan “for you, I will try” ;)


rsteaser2


Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook is the Crown Prince of Wessco, he’s a rowdy bachelor that for the sake of the kingdom has been ordered by his grandmother to find a suitable wife to get married. She gave him a list of suitable candidates and a six month deadline. Nicholas reluctantly accepts, but fate has other plans. On a trip to New York he meets Olivia Hammond, she’s a working class girl who runs her family coffee shop and takes care of her dad and sister. Nicholas is instantly attracted to her but Olivia wasn’t very impressed with him. He pursues her, hard. Their connection and chemistry though, is instant. And their banter is gold! Oh, and the sex, ridiculously hot, beyond hot, this was steamy as hell. What starts as a fling, turns into so much more, and it’s obviously all complicated by the fact that he is a crown prince and she’s a commoner. He has a duty to fulfill so in the end, he might have to choose between his duty to his country and love. The rest, you will have to read to find out!


rsteaser5


I loved Olivia from the get go, she’s smart, sassy, fierce, hard-working, and a perfect match for Nicholas. One of my requisites to rate a book 5 stars is that I absolutely have to love the heroine, if I can’t love her or identify with her, the book just loses me. I absolutely adored Olivia, she was an amazing heroine.


And even if this night is all there is, I won't forget it; I'll hold this memory close. Savor it, cherish it. It will make the hard times just a little easier, the lonely moments just a little less cold. When Ellie leaves for school, when I'm making pies before dawn in the kitchen day after day, I'll remember this feeling and I'll smile. This will get me through.”


Nicholas made the book for me. He is hilarious, so funny, so witty and oh so so hot! Being in his head was the best experience. Like I said, Emma is amazing at the male POV.

Sometimes I think I'm schizophrenic. Dissociative. Possibly a split personality. It wouldn't be unheard of. All sorts of disorders show up in ancient family trees—hemophiliacs, insomniacs, lunatics...gingers. Guess I should feel lucky not to be any of those.”

 
“She looks into my eyes and I’m lost. Wrecked. Owned. There’s no thought, no desire—except to please her. Make her see stars and touch heaven.”


The secondary characters were also amazing! Definitely well thought out and developed. I loved the strong bond between Nicholas, Prince Henry and Simon. I loved Olivia’s relationship with Marty and Ellie. I loved Franny so much. Oh and Logan and all the other security guys. I even loved the Queen. I love when while in the middle of reading a book, I start thinking about a sequel and then in the last page you find out there will be one. The entire time I thought Henry needed a book, and guess what? Book 2, Royally Matched is Prince Henry’s book!!!


rsteaser3

These days, it is so hard to get a book to fully captivate me to the point of just reading it for hours until I’m done, but this one was one of those for me. I’m not pulling your chain, this was an amazing read. Well written, characters well developed, a healthy combination of love, lust and humor. An amazing ending, an even better epilogue, this book fulfilled all my expectations and more and I absolutely recommend!

 

“I love you, Olivia. I love you. And I don’t know how to do this. I don’t know how to let you go.”

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 Olivia’s story.

The frog (more like a toad) ended up being a Prince…

Hubby busted me bawling my eyes out again and guess what his first response was? “What did he do?” Yes, it’s irrefutable, my hubby knows me well. I’m one of the lucky ones that have a hubby willing to give me a cuddle when I’m a bit teary…with only mild teasing as payment.

He hurt me…well he hurt her…but it hurt me too. Words can wound.
