(Royally Screwed #5)

4.07  ·  Rating details ·  1,593 ratings  ·  160 reviews
Forget the glass slipper. Ditch the fairy godmother. Fuck being charming.
They’ll say this is filthy.
They’ll say this is wrong.
I say she’s *mine*, and nothing’s going to stop me from claiming my Queen.

It’s hard being King. And being a king without a Queen has made me very hard indeed. A royal ball to find my bride is the last thing I want – that is, until I lay eyes on her.

"Filthy Ever After" is the story of Emilia and Rian.

A dirty retelling of the classic Cinderella story, this one had
-A sexy king in desperate need of a wife
-A heroine forced into servitude, looking for a knight in shining armor
-A ball (well also two balls)
-Some running away and chasing
-Mild violence, hot coitus and HEA
There is a second tale with Vi's menage, but I think we might explore that later.
That being said, (view spoiler)

REPEAT REREAD: October 5th, still my favorite in the series Team King Rian and Queen Emilia!

So worth the wait... This one will make you melt! Loved swoon- worthy King Rian and sweet Emilia in this memorable but sexy modern day retelling of a Cinderella tale.

5 daring and smexy stars!

This series ended perfectly!

This is the fifth book in the Royally Screwed series by Madison Faye. Rian is the King of Bandiff and running a kingdom doesn’t really leave time for much else. His advisor convinced him it’s time to look for a wife so he’s stuck at a ball at his palace with a bunch of eligible women vying for his attention. Emilia is stuck living with her stepmom and two stepsisters who are horrible to her and treat her like a servant. Her best friend, Vi who works as a cook for her stepmom talks Emilia into go ...more

I love Madison's Royally Screwed series! This one is a twist on the Cinderella fairytale story.

Rain is the King and he is in the process of finding a Queen. He is not liking the masked ball that is going on in his kingdom. So when he sees a beautiful woman walk into his castle he has to get to her.

Emilia is working as a maid for her stepmother and sisters. She is not happy with her life but has little else to do. But when there is a ball going on at the palace, her friend talks her into cr

This was a pretty quick, sweet and very sexy story. I enjoyed the fact that Rian wasn’t a manwhore and had been celibate for years and also the fact that Emilia wasn’t a virgin. I liked the bit of drama the story had, it made things interesting. On the downside I found this story a little repetitive, it had some overlapping with book 6. Otherwise this was a completely enjoyable read.

Filthy Ever After by Madison Faye is book 5 in the Royally Screwed series.

This is the story of Emilia and Rian.

This is a sexy, fast, safe, full of Insta-goodness story with a little bit of Cinderella thrown in.

4 big stars!
Modern erotic fairy tale re-telling of Cinderalla.

Heavy on erotica scenes but for those who know the original Cinderalla fairy tale story line guess not much really needed in that department.

For those who want a dirty rendition of Cinderella requiring minimal brain matter to absorb, this could scratch that itch.

5 Stars!

Madison Faye is one of the queens of smut and like an addict I keep coming back every single time. She never ever fails to deliver a hot and naughty little story in a small package that guarantees to leave you hot-n-bothered and a whole lot of breathless. Filthy Ever After is her latest standalone novella that tells the story of Cinderella but with a modern day twist.

He needs a queen and from the moment he sees her, her knows nothing will ever be the same, including her last name.

I really enjoyed this Cinderella retelling and I'm super stoked to see that this series is being extended! Rian and Emilia's story stays pretty close in line with the traditional Cinderella tale - except instead of magic we get sexy times and the fairy godmother is replaced with a baking bestie that just so happens to attract two royals at the ball (but as MF lets us know, that's a story for next time). I enjoyed the cameos from the other couples in the series and also the continuing conspiracy ...more

A filthy, dirty, and hot modern-day retelling of the classic Cinderella with plenty of secrets, betrayal, lies, plot twists, some drama, scorching chemistry, an evil stepmother, scheming step-sisters, love, and of course, a happily ever after.

I volunteered to review an advance reader copy of this book.

Royal amazingness!!!

Rian and Emilia come together in this beautiful Cinderella rendition. Its such a beautiful yet dirty story. I don't want to ruin it in any way. So you just have to read it for yourself. And when I say dirty....its the kind of dirty you will love!!!

I loved this book in this series. As usual you have the royal and the female he wants. This had a Cinderella type feeling to it because you had the horrible stepmother and the two even more horrible step sisters. Amelia loved her father even when he married a horrible woman who became worse once her father had died. Amelia was left to be a slave to the family whilst they wined and dined on what money her dad had left her.

Rian is he king and he needs a wife according to ancient rules but he want

Cinderella not so rewritten but I loved it all the same.
3.0 stars

It’d happened like lightning — something I’d never seen coming that hit me out of nowhere. But I knew there was no denying it. I’d fallen that night, and I’d fallen hard. It was crazy, and I knew that’s not how love was supposed to work, but I knew what I felt.

One of the things I would say before starting this review is that I give Madison Faye credit for not putting on a pretense or pretend to sell something that is more than it is. I appreciate her honesty when it comes to the conten

I received this book with the understanding that I could leave a voluntary and honest review.

Every heard of Cinderella? Well this is kinda her story with a dominant king instead of a prince and a woman who knows who she wants just doesn't think she deserves him. In this book we meet King Rian and Emilia. Emilia is a woman who had it all and lost it all. Her mother died of cancer when she was little. Her father remarried and they slightly after that developed and succumbed to cancer himself. So

Filthy Ever After is the fifth book in the Royally Screwed Series and is a naughty twist on the classic Cinderella story. King Rian is hosting a traditional ball in efforts to find a wife and queen, but everyone is boring until he spies a woman in green. Emilia is escaping her life for one night, showing up at a ball with her best friend, when King Rian catches her attention. Their attraction is instantaneous, his desire for her to become his is like an addiction, only for her to run away for fe ...more

Enjoyed this modern day steamy Cinderella story with the way that only Madison Faye can spin. A Great addition to the Royally Screwed!!! Get ready for the muscled, tattooed, alpha King that will let nothing get in the way of his happily ever after with the one he wants. Emilia is a twenty four year old orphan living in the basement of her father's home and serving her wicked step mother and nasty step sisters as an unpaid servant. When her best friend Vi schem
Jessica's Review
As far as Novellas go, this went pretty well. This is loosely based on Cinderella.
HOT love scene involving a Throne and a bowtie, but ultimately the story itself is the weak point.

Pretty decent descriptions lead to easy visualization of the locations, and the basic qualities of each character. Sweet. Not a dark kind of story. Warm and fuzzy feelings.

I wish more was explored as to each Rian and Emilia's memory, their impressions of meeting as children. Madison lightly touched on that, and it wou

Wanting something quick and naughty to read?  Well do ya?  Madison Faye has written this sexually charged Cinderella novella that will leave you saying, “HOT DAMN!”  Faye never disappoints when she writes about her dirty talking, gorgeous royals that want to please the women they are with.  Well done Madison Faye.  Filthy Ever After is a 5-star novella.

Your fairytale just became smuttier in Filthy Ever After by Madison Faye. "God, it was so filthy. So dirty. So hot." It is your typical Cinderella storyline with some specifics changed up for the modern age. Madison Faye is known for her fast paced, quick reads with words that will melt your panties and have you hot and bothered at the same time.

They, of course, were only attending due to Vi’s ingenious faux invitation replication skills. But when Rian spots this eye-catching beauty literally across his crowded ballroom and p

I was really happy when I saw this book on Amazon. Why? Because I thought that this series had finished. Filthy ever after is book five in the royally screwed series. This story is short, fast paced and hot. I devoured this book in one sitting and was left wanting more. I really liked that King Rian was uninterested in the women wanting to become Queen until he saw Emilia. I liked how determined he was to make Emilia his. I liked Emilia, I liked with a little push from her best friend, she atten ...more
