Because Sharing is Caring!

“Once Upon a Scandal” is the sixth installment within the Royally Screwed series but reads as a standalone novella. With classic Madison Faye flair, “Once Upon a Scandal” inundates readers with another filthy adult fairy tale… Cinderella style. Fast paced and professionally written “Once Upon a Scandal” features two blistering hot heroes, one sassy heroine as well as detailed instructions on how to make a scorching hot, Cinderella sandwich! Action packed (yeah, that kin

5 Stars!

Madison Faye delivers another hit and a must read novella! Once Upon A Scandal was a dirty, sexy, naughty little story that lit up my kindle and completely stole my heart. This book and this trio were worth every moment and I just couldn't get enough before the pages quit turning.

Vi, Adam and Shane were everything and from the moment I met them... the fire was scorching hot and totally unforgettable...undeniable.

Madison never fails to deliver the most perfect alphas and these two princes

Once Upon a Scandal is the sixth book in the Royally Screwed series, and I loved it! This is definitely my second favorite in the series. My absolute favorite is Royal Brat.

Adam and Shane were deliciously alpha, and didn't hesitate to go after what they wanted.

Vi was sassy, and fit the two brothers perfectly.

In true Madison Faye fashion, this is a quick naughty read, mixed with sweetness and a big does of Insta-goodness!

4 big stars!
*Dee's Reading Time Matters

Once you think this series it over, it continues on and on... but I really like that about this smexy Royally Screwed series!

King Rian needs to find his Queen for sovereignty sake so he throws a 'frivolous'' mask ball to find her and boy does he find her!

King Rian's Oren-- Captain of the Royal Guard will be next with "Royally Screwed #7" in January, 2019!

Great modern-day Cinderella story!!!!!!

What I didn't like - They (Vi, Adam, and Shane) said multiple times they'd never did that before during the first encounter and it was just that they'd never had a threesome. Why keep repeating it if they were talking about the same thing each time? It had already bern established. The dirty talk was weird, cliche, and conceited/arrogant. It didn't really match their personalities. It wasn't that it was too explicit or too crass. It just sounded like bad porn dialogue. The stuff with Mart

In Short
- Two very manly, hot alphas.
- Hot and sizzling scenes.
- Pleasantly surprised to try and like a fairy tale re telling.

In Long
This book is my first in the Royally Screwed series but definitely will not be my last, you can never get enough of what this book offers and i can not wait to read the rest!
Everyone loves a hot alpha, right? Well Madison doesn't just deliver one but TWO hot alphas in 'Once Upon A Scandal.' It's not just hot but sizzling with

This is number 6 in the series. We are getting Vi's story whom we met in the last book. Vi is Emilia's friend and baker for her stepfamily.

Vi is fun and loves to bake and get into trouble it would seem. She has a dirty mind and has a fantasy about the brothers Princes, Shane, and Adam before she even meets them. Which I find really fun to read.

Princes Shane and Adam are not looking for their princess activity. But they both know they want one princess. And yet they have never really tried anyt

Once Upon a Scandal by Madison Faye is bk 6 in the Royally Screwed series. This is Vi, Adam and Shane's love story. This is a sexy, steamy, and short novella in the Royally Screwed series.
Vi, Adam and Shane's short and steamy read is a twist on Cinderella's fairy tale, featuring not one, but two hot and dominant alpha princes and one sassy baker. This is a seriously sexy and sweet romance read which makes book six in the Royally Screwed series and yet may be read as a standalone in the series. E

Sexy naughty read! This book was a great addition to this series, but not as fantastic as some others. Still a good, hot, sexy alpha read. If 1 sexy alpha makes u hot, then 2 will be scorching!

Good Read

I really enjoyed this story. It was a perfect length, not too long but not too short! The three main characters in the story were very likeable. I liked that Vi wasn’t a virgin and that nothing was mentioned about the princes prior sex lives. And even though it wasn’t mentioned they didn’t come off as disgusting manwhores. I enjoyed the plot and was intrigued by Rian and Emilia’s story, that is definitely my next read!

This is a freaking sexy hot take on a Cinderella story crossed with bad boys of royalty. This will keep you warm on a cool fall night! This is a standalone, but it is book six of a series. You can enjoy this book alone, but I am excited to try out some of the other books in the series to get to know more of the friends from this book.

Once Upon a Scandal is the sixth book in the Royally Screwed Series but can be read as a stand-alone. Vi is just a baker, working for her best friend’s evil step-family when she gets an idea to copy the invitations to King Rian’s ball, bringing along Emilia for the adventure. As soon as she arrives, she’s whisked away by the two Princes of Nessa, Adam and Shane. Their passion flares hot, and just as they come together like a loved recipe, Vi panics and rushes back home with Emilia. But Adam and ...more

Vi and her friend Emilia want to attend the ball given for King Rian who is looking for his Queen. Through some ingenious artwork, Vi makes it possible to get into the exclusive event. The girls also figure out how to obtain proper ball gowns, sneaky but smart to take advantage of the step sister's vanity. Vi is the cook/baker in the household that used to be Emilia's home, until her father died and her wicked witch step mother and her daughters take over and turn Emilia into their servant.

This story is set up in the fifth book in this series; Filthy Ever After. I can be read as a standalone so there is no reason to read the other book (though I don’t know why you wouldn’t). If you have read this series before then you know what you are in for. Heat and steam, passion and lust; along with a wonderful story line; the perfect adult fairy tale.

Now that Emilia's father is dead, they are suffering under the commands of Emilia's step-mother and step-sisters. They are worked like slaves but then they get a magical opportunity. The step-sisters' dresses for the match-making ball don't fit them but they do fit Emilia and Vi.

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

In this book we get Vi's story and what happened to her after she and Emilia went to King Rian's ball. We learn that Adam and Shane are looking for not 2 but 1 bride for them both. They first thought that it was a possibility but would probably never happen then they met Vi. They don't know who she is but are determined to find her.

Vi is a baker/cook who works for Marta and her daughters, Portia and Renata. She is best friends with Emilia who is the step-daughter of Marta who works as somewhat of a slave to Marta.

When Vi and Emilia find dresses they sneak into the ball that King Rian is holding. There Vi happens to meet two princes who get her heart racing.

When Vi learns that Shane and Adam McDermott like to share will she be ready for the extra heat in the kitchen?

This book is hot and I loved the little spin on Cinderell

~ Another deliciously scandalous tale to add to the series ~

ONCE UPON A SCANDAL by Madison Faye is another hot little ménage tale, Book #6 of the Royally Screwed series. When the McDermott Princes Adam and Shane support their best friend, King Rian at his ball with the specific intent to find himself a queen, they did not realize that they themselves would find a princess who would capture their rapt attention across the crowded ballroom filled with hopeful women.

Royal Hotties and the Baker

I read this book through my kindle unlimited subscription. My review is completely voluntary.

** spoilers** Don't read if descriptions of sex acts/scenes offend you. Keep reading if you love hot, over the top alphas.

Kitchen baker Vi, friend to Queen(Lady) Emilia, forged 2 invitations to a royal ball so Emily can meet her crush, King Rian. (read book Filthy Ever After, #5 in the Royally Screwed Series for their story)

First I have to put it out there... Orin.
Ok, so this is the 6th story in this series. It features Shane, Adam and Vi! Yes, the baker and her prince’s. It’s hot, sexy, naughty, passionate, insta-lust and woven throughout a sweet warmth. This book, like the others in this series, is fast paced and exciting but you don’t miss out on the details. I received this book for a voluntary, completely honest and non incentivized review.

I love this series. This is Shane, Adam and Vi's story, whom you met in Filthy Ever After. It takes place the same time as Rian and Emelia's story. This story is like Madison's other stories, hot and steamy, with some naughtiness on the side. Shane and Adam are two princes who are best friends, and brothers in everything but blood. They are also best friends to King Rian and are going to his ball where he is supposed to find his queen. Adam and Shane know they need to find women for themselves s ...more

Two royals and a baker....

A fairytale instalust short story with two royal princes, no less, and a forbidden fruit, or more precisely a baker..

I enjoyed this modern take on the Cinderella story and loved the humour interwoven onto the plot..I am not sure how I feel about the amount of recapping on the previous events and partnerships from earlier some ways it was fun to go back and helpful in setting the scene, but it also seemed incongruous in the narrative, at times, and slowed the p
Once upon a scandal is book six in the royally screwed series. This story is short, fast paced and hot. I devoured this story in one sitting and was satisfied throughout. We briefly met Vi in book one as she is Emilie’s best friend. I liked this story. I truly wanted Vi to get her happily ever after and she certainly did.
The chemistry between Vi, Adam and Shane was clear to see and I really liked them together. The passion between them was through the roof. I liked that Adam and Shane didn’t ca
We have met Vi in our last book.. and now she has her story and it was so yummy!!

Vi has her own run in with not one but two handsome princes Adam and Shane not blood brothers but brothers.. things are flirty and playful between the three wanting to taste Vi's cooking her cakes really ;)

Adam and Shane try to hold back since they never shared a girl before and it has burned them in the past when asked one time.. but they know Vi is different...

Who doesn't love a bad boy Prince? How about two of them?? Well meet the McDermott Princes, Adam and Shane! In this book they' ll give you the bad boy side of royalty! If you 've read the previous book, then you are familiar with them, since they are friends with King Rian. Their significant other is Vi, Emilia's best friend. We met Emilia in the previous book as well. Vi is the cook for Emilia's stepmother and stepsisters.

The book is full of steamy scenes and sexual innuendos in every chapter.

Three times the scandal

Love this series, it just keeps getting naughtier and naughtier. This time we get a look at Vi, Shane and Adam’s story. We first got a glimpse at what was to come with Rian and Emilia’s story. But boy did the Baker have a story to tell. When Vi snuck in to the Ball she never thought that her deepest fantasy could come true, but when the Princes from Nessa stepped up to that bar her night just got that much hotter. If only she knew exactly where baking a cake would lead she
