New Adult Contemporary
Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to help her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him “space”—but while 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.
This is the kind of book you should pick up if you want to have a laugh out loud, totally swoon worthy read.
Even if it’s a very common type of story, it’s so captivatingly funny and adorable that you will fly through it. You can’t put it down.
The characters are endearing, Sarah is so relatable with her adoration of books. She’s the quintessential introverted bookworm.
Henry is the ultimate player, but adorably so. He really wants to be better and not fail anyone, but he’s clueless on how to go about it, which causes him to screw up time and time again.
“You shouldn’t be afraid of dying, Sarah—everyone does it. The only thing to be scared of is not living before you do.”
Their relationship is very well develop, they become friends and want to help each other, their interactions are funny and full of chemistry not insta-lovey which I really appreciate.
The Bachelor like setting to the story was hilarious, the whole work and no play kind of reality of it, and then becoming the evil part of the plot was very good.
If you’re looking for a fun, fast read pick thus up. i can’t wait for the next one.
