Won’t be surprised if this series will keep on adding new books. So far, this series has unique plots. Like movie-wise storylines. You know, those rom-com movies.

Me like it.

Why did I read this? I was looking for a fluffy, contemporary palette cleanser and this seemed like it might be fun. But it wasn't so much. It was more annoying than fun. The 10 year old is the character with the most emotional maturity in this book. (Her mother is also awesome. I would read a book with her as the heroine.) The back and forth of the two main characters (particularly the hero) gave me whiplash. They change their minds to extremes often and their actions don't ever match
Nicole P
A pleasant office romance and everything one expects from that. A grumpy, controlling boss and a PA who knows just how to handle him and stand up to him. A little bit of a love/hate tug between the two, with Chelsea trying numerous times to quit. Things change when she's given an out if she accompanies her boss on a road trip with his newly found out daughter. Taking them out of their usual environment casts them in a different light and things change one stormy night.

A quick and enjoyable read

Did you love Camden James in The Penthouse Prince?
This is the long awaited next book in that series!! I'm so excited to share this book with you!
Lets start off by saying the is a brand new author for us and
we loved our first read by them.

Chelsea was my favorite this time around as she was confident,had a backbone was witty,kind,smart,sexy and just so full off life.

Aiden well he was sexy,smart,controlling egotistical,vain at times and had a dominating personality who always needed to be in control.All those things yet Aiden loved with his whole heart once it was given both to his daughter and Chelsea.

CEO Aiden Kelley has become bored with his playboy life but he wouldn't admit that to anyone. However he did not plan that the announcement he is a dad to a ten year old girl will be what shakes things up. Aiden wants to get to know his daughter and when he is told to take her to the Grand Canyon he decides he needs his assistant Chelsea Houston in tow.

What a wonderful book! I was completely engaged by Aiden and Chelsea's story and loved how it unfolded. Chelsea has a bit of a crush on her boss, Aiden, a control freak billionaire. She's never let him know about it or acted on it in any way. However, circumstances create an arena where she feels safe to kiss him, then to have him respond and sweep her off to bed.

What good would a romance be without a bit of angst? When the terrible thing happens, Aiden turns cold and totally shuts her out. He'

The Irish Prince is a sweet and slightly sexy romance read with beautifully charming characters that capture your attention from page 1 until the last page.
Aiden Kelley is a self-made man who is now a billionaire from humble Irish roots and a self-confirmed bachelor. Chelsea, is his assistant who keeps him grounded and looks out for him. Suddenly an ex-lover dies and leaves him her their daughter, advising him that he is the child’s father and leaves him custody of a daughter he didn’t know exi

A short and easy contemporary romance...

Let's keep this short, sweet and to the freaking point. I opted to review Virginia Nelson's The Irish Prince because I loved the blurb. The cover, on the other hand, well, quite frankly it was pure shite! I've come across some other books with exactly the same cover... different dude on it though. It's just lacklustre, and sadly for me it set the tone to the actual book. Please let me emphasise that I LOVED the blurb. But, the reality is that the story lac

This book was a slow building of chemistry with a sweet ending. I liked that the two-main character had known each other for years and once they realize their attraction to each other is was a true building of a relationship. Waverly (Aiden’s 10-year-old daughter) is an absolutely hoot and I think a stand out character in this book. Chelsea Houston is your girl next door take charge executive assistant but also deals with insecurities. Aiden Kelley is the CEO who came from humble begi

Funny, smart, and loveable!

After years of being a voice in his ear Aiden Kelly's administrative assistant, Chelsea, has turned in her notice.... Again!

It's the same time that he finds out about a huge surprise ten years in the making.

The characters in this book are funny and smart. The humor that Chelsea and Waverly and Kimmy all have will make you laugh out loud. Not to mention Camden and his wife.

You'll enjoy reading this romantic comedy. I did.

This was very cute. I loved his daughter, a spitfire for sure. I would say much dirtier then the first book but still an all around easy read. I also liked that we got to see Camden and Janie again and see more of their life. Not sure if there is another book for someone else but I'm sure it would be just as good

This is the first book I have read by this author and I enjoyed it. I thought it had the perfect mix of sweet, emotional and feisty moments. Both characters were strong and at times stubborn. It was fun to watch Aiden's carefully controlled life change on a dime and then watch him as he fell in love both with his daughter and Chelsea. I enjoyed Waverly. She provided the story with some moments of wit, humor and typically ten year old thinking. While the premise of the story (billionaire dating h ...more

I just finished this book after picking it up two hours ago. I laughed and I cried.

Virginia Nelson, once again, has brought her characters into physical beings through the words she puts out onto a page. She has poured her heart out through another sweet Prince novel and managed to give me faith that there is somebody out there for everyone - and they're probably right in front of you. The Billionaire Dynasties is beyond worthy of picking up if you're looking for something steamy, or even just
Valeen Robertson (Live Thru Books Blog)
The Irish Prince just didn't do it for me, unfortunately. It was kind of boring and slow paced and nothing really happened until about 60% into the story. Chelsea is Aiden's long suffering Executive Assistant and has decided, finally! to quit her job with the man who absolutely drives her crazy. But, right as she tells him, he gets a bomb dropped in his lap - a woman he had been with briefly years ago, stops by his office to let him know they have a 10 year old daughter together and that she wan ...more

The Irish Prince had a lot of elements that I love in romance: and Alpha billionaire, a feisty heroine, a boss/office romance, and a single parent situation. Chelsea is Aiden's long-suffering assistant and we begin the book with her attempting to turn in her two week notice for the umpteenth time - this time it's because she found a woman's underclothes draped over the chair in her office (again!). Just as she submits her resignation, Aiden fin

Usually, I don't pick a book up that is in the middle of a series unless I've read the books that come prior to it. But something about this one just screamed at me and I knew that I just needed to give it a shot even though I knew absolutely nothing about this author. I'm glad that I did. It was a sweet book that I totally blew through.

The book was really endearing. I tend to shy away from books that involve characters that have kids. Probably because I have two boys and I don't want to read a

Chelsea had tried four times in the last month to submit her letter of resignation but then her boss Aidan reminded Chelsea that she was under contract. The man drove her crazy, had been driving her crazy for years. Every time Chelsea quit Aidan somehow managed to get her to take back her resignation and had convinced her to stay. But Chelsea was determined to quit this time no matter what Aidan Kelly said or did. Aidan just found out he had a ten year old daughter - Waverly- by a model Margo he ...more

What a brilliant story to indulge yourself in! Take a billionaire who is used to his life running smoothly, have an ex show up with his ten year old child and have his executive assistant, Chelsea Houston, trying to hand in her notice! Nothing seems to be going right for the usually super controlling Aiden Kelley! He has no idea how to relate to his daughter, the existence of whom he was previously unaware, but he does want to get to know her. He decides to go on a road trip . . . . but he insis ...more

I really enjoyed Virginia Nelson’s The Irish Prince. It is sweet, funny and a little spicy, and I am looking forward to reading more by Ms. Nelson. Chelsea Houston has been Aiden Kelley’s executive assistant for years and has tried to quit several times, but he's always convinced her to stay. He’s a controlling and demanding boss, and he drives her crazy. After she finds a bra in her office—he’s a playboy too—she submits her resignation and is swears this is it.

This was my first read by the author, Virginia Nelson, but I thoroughly enjoyed it. I want to see what else she may have written and read those.

This story follows Chelsea Houston, who is assistant to CEO Aiden Kelley and ready to quit when the story begins. She is tired of her boss’s antics and feeling under appreciated. Then something throw a loop in Aiden’s life and he realizes that he can’t let his trusty assistant quit when he needs her most. Together on a trip across across the country they

ARC received for an honest review and this novel was reviewed for My Timeout Book Blog by Melissa.

This novel is the second in the Billionaire Dynasties, but this is a standalone and there is no need to read the first to enjoy this one. The main characters do make an appearance in this novel late in it but you do not need a background in the to understand anything.

Aiden Kelley is a CEO billionaire who likes to be in control and have this on a tight schedule. That is until everything is throw up

Being the first piece of work I have read by Virginia Nelson, I was not sure what to expect. As I've said before, I'm not a third person POV type of reader. However, in this book, it worked, the writing was fantastic.

I love that there is something new to catch your attention in each chapter. Not always major events, but enough to make you not want to put the book down. This is what happened to me. I started reading, and all of a sudden, I was done!

This was a cute, fairly short read. So 3.5 stars.
I think in order for this book to have been amazing, it needed more detail and relationship building. Everything felt like it happened very quickly for Aiden and Chelsea. I also didn’t expect the depth of feeling towards the end of the book, since it seemed like they barely noticed each other in the beginning, but apparently they were like legit friends and had a fairly deep and meaningful friendship. It definitely did not come across that way to

This is the first book I have read by this author and I have to say - I enjoyed it. What I didn't realize when I signed up to read/review this book was that it's part of a series. In any case, I will have to go back and read the first book of this series.

The Irish Prince by Virginia Nelson is a delicious read. Aiden Kelley has been dubbed the Irish Prince by the press, but Chelsea Houston's worked for the man for several years now, and has had years to build immunity to his handsome charm. She's far too familiar with his need for order and control, but when he's confronted with a ten-year-old daughter he knew nothing about before, she's the one he turns to in order to help him regain his footing.

Aiden's found Chelsea far too intriguing for ages,
