Book Review: Royally Matched by Emma Chase
Royally Matched (Royally #2) by Emma Chase

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.

5 out of 5 stars
This was phenomenal. I didn't think it could better than Drew (Tangled) but then there was Jake (Sustained). And now, Henry. He dethrones them all! 
Henry and Sarah were such amazing characters. They were broken and suffering in their own way. I loved them remeeting and the connection they had. Henry is just so sweet and charming but wild and naughty, I loved his flirting and his dirty, teasing mouth. But he's also a lost soul and my heart hurt for him. Sarah was so so sweet and shy but I really liked her because she has that quiet presence that makes you want to listen. Their building friendship growing into more was beautiful, romantic, and full of swooney moments. 
The writing was prefect. I loved the fantastic build it had. This was such a full, amazing, and solid story filled with incredible details. I loved the humor and the fun but there was an undercurrent of emotion happening too and it was the prefect mix. I was pulled in from the begging. It was adorable, sweet, and witty but so full of heart and love.
I couldn't wait to start and dive right in, I couldn't put it down and never wanted it to end all at the same time. I loved Royally Screwed and Prince Nicholas was fantastic but there was something so endearing about Henry, and about his troubles that drew me to him. I couldn't wait to read his story and learn everything. I wanted that broken boy to love and grow and be fixed.
I love that this is dual POV and we get both Henry and Sarah's perspectives. They have so many hardships but I loved watching them come together and grow together, they're the perfect match. There is a nice amount of drama mixed in with everything balancing it all out perfectly. I was expecting a lot. I had high hopes. It was more than I could have asked for. I think Emma Chase broke the glass ceiling because it doesn't get any better than this.
Royally Matched was a brilliantly woven romantic tale about two broken people, falling in love, growing, and becoming better versions of themselves together. I loved this from beginning to end. I laughed and cried and cheered. Henry officially has my heart!
