Emma Chase is a must-buy author for me, so me reading Royally Screwed wasn’t even a question. I adore how she made all the characters come to life. So fantastic!
Royally Screwed (Royally #1) by Emma Chase
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.
I don't think I could have loved this story anymore, it was fantastic! So entertaining and heartwarming with the best characters! I loved Nicolas and Olivia so much. :-)
Nicolas and Olivia where such great characters. I loved their development, how their details where laid out and learned, and I loved watching their worlds collide. It was exciting to read! Olivia was such a strong, hard working, real woman. I love that she was always honest and true to herself. Nicolas was the epitome of charming with a hint of cute arrogance mixed in. So sweet and sexy and sincere. I absolutely loved their first meeting, it was priceless!
This story is told from dual POV’s and I love that there is insight into both Nicolas and Olivia’s thoughts throughout, they both had such a great voice. Emma Chase makes her characters relatable and real, even under the craziest of circumstances. I loved all their moments, from silly to sexy to vulnerable to emotional, she covered it all and I couldn't get enough. There is a wonderful build as these characters get to know each other, a bit of drama and tension, but a whole lot of wooing and heartfelt moments as well… I loved the pure romance of it all. Mixed in, is this wonderful humor that had me laughing out loud.
A wonderful mix of characters was introduced and I was thrilled to see some familiar faces as well. I thought they were all great but there were some real standouts to me that really shined helping to make a excellent story even richer. I'm totally crushing on Nicolas's brother Henry. I'm really excited for his story and loved the bit of foreshadowing at who his love interest might be.
This would make the best movie. I could picture it all playing out in my head. I thought the story was laid out extremely well with the perfect pace along with an awesome build and endearing characters. From beginning to end I was just lost to it. And that ending? So fantastic! I was laughing and crying and cheering, so perfect!
I absolutely love stories like this, when different worlds collide... and when one is his royally hotness and the other is a hardworking New Yorker with a smart mouth, even better! I'm Royally hooked!
