Review: ​The Lady of Royale Street (NOLA Nights #3) by Thea de Salle

This has been such an entertaining series… and off the charts hot as well! I hate to say goodbye to NOLA Nights but it went out with a bang with The Lady of Royale Street for sure.



The Lady of Royale Street 

The Lady of Royale Street (NOLA Nights #3) by Thea de Salle 


From the New York Times bestselling author of the NOLA Nights series comes a rollicking, sexy tale of opposites attracting in the midst of wedding planning.

Alex DuMont is everything his brother Sol isn’t: regimented, serious, and devout. Between twelve-hour workdays, service to the church, punishing daily workouts, and bi-weekly therapy sessions, Alex is, as Sol once put it, “a kettle perpetually whistling as it boils itself to death.” So when Sol announces his marriage to Arianna Barrington, heiress and society sweetheart, Alex is the absolute worst choice to be his best man. Sol asks anyway and Alex reluctantly agrees. It’s only a week, after all, and Alex should be able to stop himself from throttling his big brother for a meager seven days. Probably. Maybe.

Theresa Ivarson is Arianna’s best friend and the maid of honor. A decorated photojournalist who interrupts her globetrotting to stand beside her friend, Theresa is beautiful, witty, and unafraid to speak her mind. So when she is faced with working with the best man from Hell, a Viking who doesn’t know how to smile, is bossy, and about as pleasant as a cactus, the sparks are bound to fly—and not in the good way. To make matters worse, Sol and Rain's wedding planner was hit by a bus the week before their special day, and Alex and Theresa find themselves at the center of a list-ditch effort to pull the wedding together. But when you can’t decide if you want to kiss or kill someone, something’s bound to break.


4 out of 5 stars

This was so freaking entertaining! I loved the tension between Alex and Theresa. Them coming together was a fun ride with a great build and a heck of a lot of heat.

This was a fast paced read that had a whole lot of outrageous scenarios, a great cast of characters, and it was super hot. Alex and Theresa's first meeting was pretty awkward, these two weren't off to a good start to say the least. I liked the animosity between them and the fun that created. As they get to know each other, the sexual tension ratchets up until it's off the charts. I love Alex fighting his feelings and the battle he was having. They both have some reasons for holding back that created some dilemmas for them but I loved the crazy ride of them coming together and working it out.

The writing was really good. There is a great pace and build happening. It's a light, witty read that was full of humor and low in the drama department with an awesome amount of heat and chemistry happening between Alex and Theresa. Lots of chaos and running around since their helping with a wedding but it's also sweet as we get to know the characters and see how wonderful and caring they are. I found them both to be really endearing. The story was so entertaining and had a lot of outlandish moments but this isn't my first rodeo with Thea de Salle so I knew what to expect. If anything, I felt it was tamer in the crazy department than the first two books (The King of Bourbon Street and The Queen of Dauphine Street) but it was just as enjoyable all the same.

I loved watching the characters figure out their issues while they were in the middle of crazy wedding antics and adventures. Extremely entertaining!
