Alex lives his life by the book. That is what is to be expected of the Prince of Wales, after all. And he enjoys order and predictability, so while the tabloids generally find him a snooze he’s perfectly content to live his life under the radar, placid and comfortable.

Serena Christensen is Hollywood’s latest It Girl, unafraid to call studios on their bullshit and used to

This is such a short, cute book. I read it in an hour.
It’s about a prince and a starlet getting drunk and then married.
It’s super sweet and has some fun parts too.
I liked it :)

Tbh this was so short there really isn’t enough to write a full review without telling the whole story. Like others have mentioned, this is super short and although the characters, Serena and Alex are interesting and had potential, they weren’t really fleshed out.

That’s because the story is told through a confusing and disjointed conversion of past, present and future time lines. For me at least, it made it hard to connect with the characters because each time line emphasizes completely

A Royal Mistake was such a cute short story that will leave you wanting for more. Though it was rather short, the story was well executed, but because it was short it felt that there were things missing towards the end. I still very much enjoyed the epilogue and I will most certainly be reading more from the author in the future. If you like these types of romance stories between a royal and non-royal, I would still recommend giving this story a try. ;)

It's rare to come across a novella-length story with characters who feel fully fleshed out with believable chemistry, but Davis manages to do both with A Royal Mistake. I fell in love with Alex's special brand of restrained snark and Serena's uninhibited, unapologetic love for life. They bring out the best in one another and I'd read an entire series with these two.

A fun modern royal romance with likable characters. I will admit it seemed to end suddenly. I turned the page and felt like it had skipped to the ending. Otherwise, good read.

I received a copy of this book from the publishers via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

Serena Christensen is Hollywood’s latest Wild Child. Alex is the staid, reliable Prince of Wales, future King of England. A wild night in Vegas ends as you would expect, a quickie wedding. The story involves two intermixed timelines. Present day, where Alex and Serena deal with the consequences and the night before.

I was immediately enthralled with this book. The dialogue was witty and the narrative

A quick read novella about Alex, the Prince of Wales, and Hollywood actress Serena.

As it is a novella, the plot moves fairly quickly. I liked the style in which the story unfolded with looks at their evening together. It helped to better illustrate why they connected so well that they might have thought it was a good idea to marry while they were intoxicated.

I do think that had a chapter or two been added to the book, both Alex and Serena could have been fleshed out as characters more. That

Cute, short, story about a prince and a famous actress who get drunk and elope.
Definitely a fun idea for a story.

They're practically strangers when they marry and everyone expects them to get an annulment. But they know there's a reason they got married in the first place and they start to wonder whether annulling their marriage might be a mistake.

I got to read an early e book edition from NetGalley.

Cute little quickie. I liked this one. Well written but just wish it was a bit longer. I love the concept of the drunken insta love you get with an actress and prince. Alex and Serena have a lot of chemistry. As a first read of Elizabeth Davis I would go back for more. A Royal Mistake is a quick yet fun read.

This short story proved to be a light-hearted romp of romance with a royal. The story was interesting and flowed well. All characters were done well and seemed realistic. The start of this romance is quite unique; then again so is romancing a prince. Lovely read!

I received a free copy of this short story and I am leaving an honest review.

Cute, quick read. A little confusing at first with the diverging timelines. I really would have preferred that this was a longer book. I really like the writer's style and the characters. I wanted more!

This was such a lovely little gem of a story!
Serena is such a badass actress, and Alex is the perfect prince and their "reversed" love story is just the sweetest.
Also, I loooooved the way the flashbacks were structured!

3.5 stars. A very well written short novella with the sort of dual timeline that is very hard to pull off but Elizabeth Davis manages to do it brilliantly.

Alex and Serena are cute and funny and despite the shortness you can feel the chemistry between them. I did, however, feel.that the characters could be a little more fleshed out and the ending a little less quick, but those shortcomings are a result of to the shortness.

Most of all, though, I wish this were a full-length novel, because I am
