“This was a fast and adorable read that kept me turning the pages.”
~ Under the Covers

I debated for a while before picking this book up because I’ve stayed away from the “royals” trope that’s popped up recently.  I just didn’t know if it was going to work for me.  But if there was someone that I was open to trying was Emma Chase for sure.  I’m so pleased to say that the reservations I had about reading this had no place in this story.

One of those things was an immature read about a privileged and spoiled royal.  No immature characters here!  Nicholas is surprisingly centered, with the weight of responsibility on his shoulders.  He really made this book for me because I fell for him right away.  He’s the right combination of confident without being cocky, daring but cautious about his celebrity status.  So perfectly balanced.

The second worry I’ve had about this trope… angst.  Maybe it’s because this is contemporary romance instead of new adult, but ROYALLY SCREWED is quite angst free.  There’s obviously some tension with the fact that the Prince falls for a simple NYC baker with no money and an alcoholic father, but the angst I was worried about was nowhere in sight, so I was pleasantly surprised about it.

Like I already said before, the hero of this story hooked me in.  But the romance and the easy chemistry between Nicholas and Olivia was a lot of fun to read.  This was a fast and adorable read that kept me turning the pages.  If you are looking for something a little different than the same old same old plots, then give this a try.

About Emma Chase

By day, Emma Chase is a devoted wife and mother of two who resides in a small, rural town in New Jersey. By night she is a keyboard crusader, toiling away the hours to bring her colorful characters and their endless antics to life. She has a long standing love/hate relationship with caffeine.

Emma is an avid reader. Before her children were born she was known to consume whole books in a single day. Writing has also always been a passion and with the 2013 release of her debut romantic comedy, Tangled, the ability to now call herself an author is nothing less than a dream come true.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Thanks for the review. I wondered about it when I saw the title floating around. I’ve heard good things about Emma Chase, but I haven’t gotten to her, yet.

Oh hope you give her a chance. I still love the first book in the Tangled series and Sustained from the Legal Briefs series.

I’ve only read a few royal romances, but I noticed some of what you are saying. Glad to know this one stood out and was pretty good.

Yeah. I know there’s plenty of people that love those things about them, but they’re not so much for me.
