His Princess is book one in the brand new series, The Princess, by Alexa Riley. If you have read ARs books before, you know before going in that it will be over the top sweet and smutty with complete insta-love. This one has all of these ingredients and I loved it!

His Princess - Alexa Riley:

It is time for King Roman to choose a wife. All it took was one look at a photograph and he knew she was the one. That she would be his. Royal law dictates how this process proceeds, though. Paperwork is signed, they meet, and in one

This was short, completely over the top, and utterly ridiculous.

In other words, exactly how I love my naughty little AR books.

Aha. Alexa Riley. Love them or hate them, they are a powerhouse duo who have created a formidable Brand.

You might think youre buying a mere .99 cents book
when in fact theyve succeeded in carving a direct line to your Mastercard debit card, reeling in thousands of readers who auto-buy any and all AR books. Absolutely impressive.

These women are not playing. They know what most women want and they deliver consistently on their promise of Alpha men, blushing females and the inevitable HEA. Easy,

➳Alexa and Riley are known for their over the top but very welcome alpha male, possessive, and insta-romantic love stories. This story is no different when it comes to that, however the story plot and the characters status is magical in a fantasy type of way that draws you to turn the next page

3.5 stars. This was a delightful modern day fairytale! It was everything we have come to expect from the queens of smut, insta crazy lust and love, romance, steamy sex scenes, a sweet untouched heroine and a swoon worthy OTT alpha hero.

King Roman and Princess Alena were hot together. What I enjoyed most was the relationship between the sisters and their antics made me laugh more than once. I cannot wait for the next...:)

HIS PRINCESS: Everyone who is anyone knows exactly who 'King Roman' is, and he's decided to stake his claim on Aleana who he's chosen to be his wife. In their world things are still in the dark ages, the female doesn't get to choose her husband, that's completely out of their hands, all is done behind closed doors.

This was a super short, super sweet fairy tale on Viagra. This was back to the AR of old in all her OTT glory. Insta/love/lust and dirty business.

If you're looking for something to warm you up *wink, wink* this will surely do the trick. I really enjoyed the whole royal theme and the "I am your King", "I will do anything for my queen" usually I don't go for the mushy stuff but I liked it in this one.

because there is a princess in every girl and every princess deserves her happy ending

The story takes place in a vague kingdom during an unclear time and an arranged marriage is about to happen between King Roman and little virgin Alena. King has chosen her from one of her photographs and has fallen madly in love with her.

Nothing will prepare him for Alenas sass:
Maybe you should rethink who youre picking to address you, then. Im sure there is a line of princesses who would be happy to kiss your

I laughed until my stomach hurt. The first chapter started quite good, the second and third were ridiculous, especially when the heroine says, Please, have mercy, my king. while she is in bed with the king lol. And the hero replied back, Ill give you mercy from my mouth, but Im not done with you yet. It was all too much I couldn't even perceive what was happening. All in all, I do like Alexa's works, it's fit for a short read when I need a break from the books I'm reading. ...more

Review @ Midnight Romance

Super pretty cover! Also the blurb excited me. Alexa Riley wrote a new series about an alpha king and his future queen. It was short enough to make me fall in love. I won't forget this whole new royally experience.
Ill stop at nothing until you get what you want. And I always get what I want.

I loved this book, everything from the cover, the characters, the story, the sex and the epilogue.
Roman is a king and he's chosen his future queen, Alena never expected to be chosen her sister Tabitha is the one that collects marriage proposals but Alena has no say, it's been decided for her.
Roman fell in love with Alena from a photo and he can't wait to marry her in fact he can't bear to be parted from her at all and the chances of him waiting a whole week are remote.

Reading Alexa Riley feels like meeting a close friend. You have a strong relationship with them, built over the years.

His Princess is exactly what you would expect from these ladies: steamy sex, silly old tropes (used just right) and a hot alpha set on breeding.


This is another comfy erotic fairy tale.

Alpha royal heroes and AR smut all in one story? Heck yes, it works! It's always good to have these hot novellas between reads and, of course, Alexa Riley did not disappoint. Check it out if you have enjoyed these ladies' stories in the past, guys!

Whoops, I made the mistake of reading a novella again... Sometimes, I do not check the length of a book until I come to the end of it, my mistake, sorry :(

For a person like me, who dislikes short stories, this book is not satisfactory in any way.

- It is too short and undeveloped for my taste...
- Insta love/lust just by looking at a photo...
- The heroine is virgin - the hero is experienced... yikes, I hate this combination!
- A vague kingdom, an unclear time and an arranged marriage as in old

I got warped on a different dimention when I read this book. They were acting like Medieval people, but they have limo and talked about 'hookers'. It was entertaining, I'm really laughing while I writting this review, I mean nowadays who says ...

Alexa Riley did a royal romance indeed royally! Can I even say that this way? You understand what I'm trying to say? Yes, I loved it!

Alena has no choice who she will have to marry. She is a princess, and when the King Roman chose her, she just has to agree. Not that Alena is very happy about it. King Roman is a cold giant, but has a soft spot for her and will do anything that she reciprocates his feelings.

You are absolutely perfect, princess. There isnt anything on earth Ive seen that is as

This book is best consumed when you don't mind insta-cheese and can extend your beliefs to its fullest capacity. When that time is right for you, I guarantee you'll have yourself a good ol, smutty time :)

Mindy Lou's Book Review
I feel like we got Alexa Riley back! Her books lately have felt a little off. I didn't know if it was me or the books, but THIS book is the Alexa Riley I fell in love with when I first started reading her.

I realize the ones that have disappointed me felt like they were so short that all there was to the story was a sex scene. Believe it or not, I need more. I missed having an actual story to go with the possessive alpha I love and adore. Finally, this book felt complete. I can't wait for the
Loved it! Back to old-school AR. You want to know what I love best about these books? When the hero is a caveman and wants to breed his woman so she's tied to him forever. And I'm not apologizing for it!

Sissy's Romance Book Review
'His Princess' by Alexa Riley is book One in "The Princess". This is the story of Alena and Roman.
Roman wanted to marry Alena after seeing just one picture of her. So the marriage was arranged before either really met the other. Alena was somewhat upset at first but after meeting Roman she started to settle into getting married. Roman was not disappointed after meeting Alena...she was all he hoped her to be.
This was a sweet, hot and easy read that truly gave me nice break in my day. I hope to

Im AR junkie, no question.
I read and will probably read all their books.

But I have a different approach lately: I skip the plot, read sex scenes and amuse myself.
The things I read in this book! Priceless! From the tip to the breed. Epic!

Its me again, but if my lover told me to call him King in bed I would wet the sheets by peeing myself when laughing hysterically
