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.
Firstly let’s start with what initially drew me in, the cover. Like, hello, what are you about? Does it even matter? I need you on my shelf. Then I see that it’s Emma Chase and she has been on my tbr list for forever now, so score, finally, and then lastly my library has it available on audiobook so I can dive right in during my overnights at work. And then right when I thought I couldn’t be anymore excited to start this book I start the audiobook and the narrator has an accent, kill.me.now. Then I got super bummed that the book wasn’t longer and I haven’t even made it through the first chapter yet.
Royally Screwed follows sexy Prince Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, who apparently has an incredibly long name, but also an incredible face and accent with a side of arrogance and charm. He’s next in line to become king and with the downfall of his country he has been told he needs to make some major changes but after meeting a dark haired beauty while in New York, Nicholas isn’t sure what to do.
Then we have sassy hardworking Olivia Hammond who has lost her mother and is trying to keep her family and family business afloat working her butt off and then one day without a clue who he is the Nicholas happens upon her bakery and her life is forever altered. Like, hello where is Prince Harry, and why is he not walking into my job?
So I’m going to be completely honest, since I have read/listened to Royally Screwed I have gone and read all but maybe two of Emma Chase’s books. I am obsessed. Her characters are witty, she can write a male POV (which I tend to cringe on a lot), and stories that just suck you in. I can’t wait to continue this series, and with anything Emma Chase comes out with in the future.
