Blog Tour: Royally Screwed - Emma Chase

  rs-fb-now-ad-3     royally-screwed-for-web

Emma Chase, New York Times bestselling author of the Tangled Series & Legal Briefs Series, returns with the first of three sizzling standalone books about a family of racy, irresistible Royals

Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka “His Royal Hotness”, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant—hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you. Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face. Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.

 *** 

 Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be. There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately—the royals are far from accepting of this commoner. But to Olivia—Nicholas is worth it.

 ***

 Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is, but more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

REVIEW

So I went into Royally Screwed thinking that I was going to get a rom-com type novel that was going to help me get over a major book hangover.  Yeah, no that didn’t happen, towards the end of the book I was back in tears and my hangover was even worse.  Thanks for that.  This book was spectacular.  I absolutely loved the dichotomy between what Nicholas was thinking and what he actually did.  Now I’m going to be watching interviews with public figures and doing a sort of Mystery Science Theater thing where I’m guessing what they are really thinking.

Prince Charming Nicholas isn’t when he meets Olivia for the first time.  More like Prince Obnoxious.   But he was definitely suave, sexy and a go-getter after that first impression.  Olivia was independent, tough and feisty, I love feisty heroines.  The banter between the two was great, the chemistry even better—talk about steaming up my Kindle.  Wooweeee.  I also loved the secondary characters.  Franny was a kick in the pants.  I loved her no nonsense attitude.  I cannot wait for Henry’s story.  I imagine he’s going to be up to some naughty naughty things.


So yes, while there was definitely some amazing humor going on within these pages; there were other emotions evoked as well.  Frustration definitely, I wanted to throw my Kindle several times.  I probably would have reached through it to slap some sense into some people at different points if I could as well.  There was breathtaking romance and nail-biting decisions to make, and pain in the butt exes.  But it wasn’t super heavy on the drama.  This was definitely a cute and sexy read.  It was super enjoyable, swoon worthy and definitely worth a one-click.  -Peace and Love, Buxom J

EXCERPT

 She’s even lovelier than I remembered, than I dreamed. Delicate midnight tendrils frame a face that belongs in a museum—with stunning dark sapphire eyes that should be commemorated in vibrant oils and soft watercolors. If Helen launched a thousand ships, this girl could raise a thousand hard-ons.

She’s prettily made, the top of her head coming only to my chin, but fantastically curvy. Great full tits that strain the buttons of a wrinkled white blouse, shapely hips in a black skirt tapering to a tiny waist I could wrap my hands around and toned legs encased in sheer black tights finish off the whole package very nicely.

An unfamiliar anxiousness fizzes like soda in my gut.

“The door was open,” I explain.

“It’s broken.”

Logan flicks at the lock. Security is his life, so a broken lock would annoy him like a puzzle with the final piece missing.

“What do you want?”

She has no idea who I am. It’s in the defensive way she holds herself and the accusatory note in her voice. Some women try to pretend they don’t recognize me, but I can always tell. Her ignorance is rather…thrilling. There are no expectations, no hidden agendas, no reasons to pretend—what she sees is what she gets. And all she sees is me.

My throat is suddenly a barren wasteland. I swallow, but it’s difficult.

“Well, he’s desperate for some pie.” I hook my thumb at Simon. “And I…wanted to apologize for the other evening. I don’t normally act that way. I was on a bit of bender…”

“In my experience, people don’t do things when they’re drunk that they wouldn’t do normally.”

“No, you’re right. I would’ve thought all those things, but I never would’ve said them out loud.” I move closer, slowly. “And if I’d been sober…my opening bid would’ve been much higher.”

“She crosses her arms. “Are you trying to be cute?”

“No. I don’t have to try…it just sort of happens.”
