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.
Royally Screwed focuses on the characters Nicholas and Olivia. It’s told in a dual point of view format so we truly get to see inside both of their heads. Prince Nicholas is one hell of a swoony lead. He’s cocky, sexy and so passionate. He falls hard for Olivia-and I loved watching him try to navigate a relationship with her. Watching him try to balance his duties to his country while deal with his feelings for her really made my heart hurt for him.
Olivia was such a fun and sassy character-exactly what I expect from Emma Chase. I love that she didn’t recognize Nicholas, that she didn’t fall for him because of his title-in fact she fell for him in spite of it. She’s a relatable heroine and I found myself wanting (if I couldn’t be her) to be her friend.
I loved the supporting cast of characters here. They added to the story in a fun way-from Nicholas’ security team to Olivia’s family. They didn’t detract from the story one bit.
This book was one I didn’t want to end and I’m so glad we’ll get to see glimpses of these characters again next year with Chases’s second book in this series. If you’re looking for a book with heart, heat and strong characters this book is for you. I can’t recommend it enough.
