Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant; hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.
Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.
Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.
Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.
There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces, and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.
But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.
Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King… or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.
What a wonderfully fun book. And hot, definitely a HOT read. I always wished I could meet a prince who would be so captivated by me that he would make me a princess. Alas, I met my prince, he just wasn’t royal. Nevertheless I enjoyed living vicariously through Olivia, she gets to go through quite the ride on her way to romance.
I love you, Olivia. I love you. And I don’t know how to do this. I don’t know how to let you go.
As much as I loved Nicholas, I also had moments of hate for him. He is a rather pompous arse, cocky, self important… you know, just what you would expect of someone raised with the world at their feet, but when he meets Olivia she becomes the perfect balance to his pretentiousness. And if anyone deserves a prince it’s definitely Olivia, who is barely making ends meet with a failing cafe and an absent alcoholic father. So when Nicholas swoops in on the winter winds we can’t hold her decision to give him another chance against her.
The writing is fast paced, without a single dull moment. It can easily be finished in a day, with a nice and tidy ending that will leave you feeling like it’s complete.. But never fear because Royally Screwed is just the first in the series and even though you could be done, in the end you will feel a need to continue in the world of Princes and Kings…
