Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap.
He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own:
Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition.
A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart.
While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye.
The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor.
But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight.
As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.
My 5 Star Review
I am a HUGE Emma Chase fan, I will start by saying if you haven’t read her books you should ASAP! She is one of the best at writing the male point of view, hilarious books and love stories that make you swoon.
Royally Matched takes two things I love, reality television and fairytales and merges them together. First, I used to be addicted to reality tv, now I can’t even start them or I will look up hours later to realize I just wasted my entire day watching them. Chase uses a “Bachelor” type world in Royally Matched. A group of beautiful eligible ladies are invited to the Prince's estate for a chance to win his heart.
Henry is just in it fun and he has no intention of actually find a spouse. He is the carefree, wild child who says and does what he pleases and makes no apologies. Now that he is the heir to the throne they are expecting more from him, but instead, he signs on for some fun and games with this reality show. Sarah is the introverted, nerdy girl who is only there to make sure her crazy sister doesn’t do anything too crazy and embarrass the family.
For Sarah, this trip will be like a little vacation. She plans to escape her job at the library while reading and relaxing. Everyone knows how sexy and alluring Henry is, but she isn’t the type of girl to fall all over herself for a man. She is sensible and not looking to get her heartbroken. Henry and Sarah bond while he is attempting to escape the cameras. Henry finds Sarah’s realness addicting and wants to spend more time with her. In this story of opposites attract, sparks fly and Henry finds himself feeling more than he ever has before.
I love reading stories with both point of views, especially one written so well. I loved Henry and seeing how he grew throughout the story. I love how Sarah blossomed into a more confident person and we got to see just how strong of a person she is. Henry and Sarah together were swoon worthy and made my heart so happy. I loved their moments of escape and how they truly completed each other.
Chase writes great stories, great stories! I love her books and I am always excited to jump into the next world she creates. This world of royalty is perfect for hitting my need for romance and fairytales. It just makes my heart happy to read her books and always leaves me with a huge smile on my face.
