Melissa's Review:

Royally Screwed is book one in the Royally series. This was my first Emma Chase book and now I can see why people love her work! I have a weakness for royalty books and really wish there were more of them out there. I already want book two, so it's going to be a must buy when it comes out.

We start off meeting Nicholas, the Crowned Prince of Wessco. He's a playboy prince that loves all the ladies, but the Queen wants him to settle down and gives him a deadline on getting married. She also sends him to New York to bring his brother back home. While there Nicholas meets Olivia Hammond, she runs a coffee shop that is famous for their pies. His drunk encounter with her winds up with a pie to his face and more intrigue than he knows what to do with. I loved how Olivia and Nicholas's characters acted towards each other. Olivia isn't a push over so didn't take his crap and the best part was even when she did find out who he was she wasn't star struck. I really appreciated that! Though it was a tad bit predictable in places, there were also surprise scenes I didn't see coming. I felt overall this was pretty balanced and highly entertaining.

Royally Screwed is a delectable must read. I loved seeing how taken Nicholas became with Olivia and how his character changed as the novel progressed. I'd imagine it had something to do with her turning him down at first since he's so used to getting his way. The way the characters were written just had the reader falling in love with them too. So overall, I think the author did a wonderful job and I cannot wait to get my hands on book two. I recommend this to any royalty romance lovers out there.

  2. Is it bad that I want to read this based on the cover alone lol? Nicholas sounds great! Not sure if I've read a contemporary romance with a prince before but this looks like a good one to try :)

  5. So glad to hear this one worked out. It sounds and looks like such a good read that I would have been disappointed if the reviews started coming in with people saying it wasn't good. I plan to get a copy as soon as I catch up on my current reads.
