Every little girl dreams of being swept off her feet by a charming Prince.

But my life was no fairy tale.

And in this kingdom called college, the rules went out the window.

I’d known golden boy, Theo Hunt, was the one for me since we were kids. My heart was his for the taking, but I had become nothing more than the MVP of the campus king’s friend-zone.

THE WRONG PRINCE CHARMING: Is a 'New Adult' stand-alone novel by Holly Renee. In this we meet Maddy, Theo and Easton.

Maddy has been best friends with Theo since she was twelve years old, it was only right that she would follow him to college because of a pact they made five years previous by staying together no matter what. Theo had been offered a f

I love a good NA novel. I’ve previously read a couple Holly Renee books, so I was super anxious for this story. The Wrong Prince Charming has multiple facets to its storyline–showcasing a fun and playful aspect along with emotional, personal growth where a young woman is challenged with what is expected of her and who she really wants to be.

Maddy is a first-year college student, having just arrived at the same school as her best friend (whom she’s in love with), Theo. Along with controlling pare
Five stars for Easton and Maddy ❤!!!


Everybody knows that I'm so obsessed with College Romance books and this is the reason why I decided to read this book.

At first, I was though that Easton will be a bad boy but I was so wrong. He was everything but the bad boy and less "the wrong prince charming" 😉.

And Maddy is so lucky that she found him 💙!

I liked her character and I was really sorry for her when she couldn't decide who's she loves more Easton or Theo (her best friend). But luckily for

4.5 stars and definitely one of my favourite reads this year

”Easton may not have been my Prince Charming, but he was everything I needed.”

This was my second book by Holly Renee and I’m absolutely in love with it. I hadn’t have this love-triangle angst level since Suddenly Forbidden by Ella Fields.
My heart was constantly at war with whom Maddison should end up with in the end. The author did a fantastic job showing Maddison’s feelings for Theo and Easton and fighting her emotions, finding the way
I really wanted to give this 3 stars and I was prepared for it, especially since I was in the mood for something simple and silly, but the last quarter of the book was pretty mediocre even for the standards of such a book.

As expected, everyone in the cast is hot and thankfully, Maddison is not the girl to put herself down or up, for that matter. She goes on about her life and you do not have to worry about her humble bragging about how could she possibly do anything or attract anyone! And that i

OMG! I loved this book so much! It was so good and everything I love about NA! The tension was off the charts and had me overheating with the chemistry! This book was over way too soon for me, but I’m going back for more books from Holly Renee because I think I just fell in love with her writing!

Rate: 4 / 5 stars

For some reason, I didn't remember this was a college romance so I was pleasantly surprised when I started and I realised it was one. Maddison just arrived in college and you see her reunite with her life long best friend Theo. These two have a super close friendship and you can see from both their actions and Maddison's thoughts that they both have feelings for each other but don't want to go there and be in danger of losing each other's friendship.

“...he kissed me like he had been missing me as badly as I had been missing him. It wasn’t gentle or teasing. It felt like a storm. The wild chaos of lightning and wind and rain pounding down against me, and just for a second there was a silence, just before the thunder hit, and I knew with absolute certainty that I would never love anyone like I loved Easton Cole.”

Oh, be still my heart. This book absolutely wrecked me, but in that good way, y’know?

The Wrong Prince Charming by Holly Renee brings all of the banter and the swooning.

I went in blind, after several friends had told me this book was a must read, so I had no idea what trope I was going to get.

3-3.5 stars. I liked the sound of this book because it seemed to promise angst and a love triangle, which it somewhat does, but not at high octane. Maddison has been in love with her best guy friend Theo for a long time and is trying to navigate out of the friend zone now that they’re at college together. Then Easton comes along with his playfulness and flirtations, immediately sweeping her off of her feet. In the meantime, he’s also her TA. I thought Easton was very likable and even swoony, but ...more

I absolutely loved this book, I don’t think the cheesy smile left my face the entire time. Maddison and Theo's friendship is rare and fun, it’s hard to have a best friend who is male and not have the lines crossed but for so many years they did it. When Maddy meets Easton her world is rocked and she is feelings things she knows she shouldn’t. Now torn between the best friend whom she loves and a new attractive male who will she choose?

The book had so much potential before the author turned the heroine into a whiny childish douchy bitch. What a little whore she turned out to be. I hate when undeserving characters get happy endings, she should have caught an std and that could have been the end.

While there were some definite juvenile “who would really do that?” moments in this book, I found myself enjoying it enough to keep reading. It was ruined but a random gratuitous threesome. I read all types of books but this was a mess. It didn’t occur organically. The H (Ethan) threw a hissy fit after our h listened to some bad information from her best fried Theo. He could have waited and tried to work things out but instead decides to screw another girl, I guess to “show” her. He really isn’t ...more

I really liked this one, but knowing how good some of Holly Renee’s other works are, color me a bit disappointed. I hadn’t even begun to love interest 1 before were introduced to Love interest 2 so that buildup was nonexistent which made the love triangle pretty bland and painless. I like mind a little angst and tension in my love triangles and there was little if any. Where this one fell flat for me was in the tropes, not necessarily the tropes themselves— but the lack of commitment with go

2.5 out of 5 Stars

Oh where do I begin with this one... I wanted to love it. Heck, I wanted to like it but it was so very firmly meh I have no idea why so many people raved about it when it released.

Maddy was irritating. Her relationship/friendship with Theo was utterly whacked. Easton was pretty cool but his willingness to throw away everything he'd worked for on Maddy - who'd leave his bed to go and snuggle with her BFF Theo - was incomprehensible.

I went into The Wrong Prince Charming excited to try a new-to-me author and to get a dose of love triangle I have wanted for a bit. While I loved the bones of the book and I thought the prose was solid… I think it lacked detail and lacked an arc for Theo. I never really got the chance to “love” him before deciding who I liked. This book could have been a chunk longer with more Theo moments and a little more build-up to the conflict. There was also a scene in the book that just didn’t fit and fel ...more

Not buying this story. The first part had promise, the second part was a total 360 of the story and sucked.

Not only was this fast insta-love but the supposed triangle was not actually present. There was no character development. At all. I didn’t get both guys reaction once the confrontation happened. We must completely have missed something or weren’t in on the secret. PLUS why was there not one eyebrow raised at the ménage scene? I did not expect there to be a steamy hot threesome. It wasn’t n

Holy mother of tension! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is my first Holly Renee book and let me tell you, it will not be my last! I’ve been in a bit of a book funk over the last month and The Wrong Prince Charming is exactly what I needed. Easton Cole is the perfect book boyfriend. He’s a delicious mix of untouchable bad boy and sweetheart. The moment our heroine, Maddison, meets him, the chemistry flies from the pages and I rooted for them from the very beginning.

Holly Renee has delivered the perfect New Adult
I was disappointed by this reading
The author managed to convince me of the instant chemistry between Maddison and Easton, but that she failed to create a strong and determined female protagonist. Easton, on the other hand, was a sincere and character-like boy who didn't deserve Madisson. In the end that he would forgive her so easily, he gave Easton some personality.
I hated the situation in which he put Easton. He was clearly very committed to her but she only allowed herself to be manipulated b

I have read a few of Holly Renee’s books and really enjoyed them; this was no different.

I loved the drama of Maddison falling in love with Easton whilst being in love with her best friend, Theo, for most of her life. There is a lot of emotion going on and I was falling hard for one of the boys, not saying who. The feelings were strong and I found myself reading faster to get to the next page as quick as possible. I needed to know who she would choose and if I was right in my predictions.

Maddison starts college happy and confident. Her best friend and expected future "Husband" Theo is already there, but when Easton comes on the scene, dilema's and confliction with emotions begins.
Maddie has always loved Theo, and figured their future is set, but Easton has set something alight inside her, he's also out of bounds being Theo's Frat Brother and her TA in English.

Maddison is a pretty sheltered gal who has a best friend named Theo. Theo and Maddison are close but since he's gone to college, he really has another life outside of her. She pretty much is under her parents thumb, foregoing her college dreams of going to another university to keep her best friend and father happy.

Maddison meets Theo's frat brother, Easton, and from that first meeting, there is chemistry. She's feeling things for this guy that she's never felt before. He is also her TA, which a

Holy moly! I loved this book hard. Great characters and chemistry. The flow was impeccable. I could not get enough and was so sad when it ended. This is a bit of a love triangle in a way but it’s more than that. Friendship and finding new relationships can always bring drama and boy does it here! But not in an annoying way. It was addicting and I couldn’t wait to see how it all came to be. Super steamy with a little kick in there I wasn’t expecting

From the first time he steps onto the page I was in love. He was such a good mix of swoony alphahole.

What didn't I liked?--- I wish it was longer (just kidding I FLOVED this books). I just loved this story so damn much I didn't want it to end. Seriously so so so so good.
