Royally Screwed by Emma Chase ~ Review & Quote-tastic (@EmmaChse)

I haven't read a book for Emma Chase for AGES!! So it's not surprising that I picked this one up while it was on sale 😉. I certainly wasn't disappointed when I met Prince Nicholas... dayum!

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 and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King... or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

I'm one of those girls that's a sucker for stories about a girl falling for a prince... so I knew I would love Royally Screwed, I'm just kicking myself I didn't pick it up earlier! It was such a feel good read, and gave me the warm fuzzies as I watched Nicholas and Olivia meet and slowly fall in love!

Nicholas was every girls dream guy: tall, confident and handsome. He took his role in the royal family very seriously as he knew that he was next in line to the thrown. He went to New York to retrieve his brother after getting an ultimatum from the Queen, his grandmother. It was amusing to see Nicholas being carefree, doing what he liked with his time there, knowing everything will change in a few short months.

Olivia's family business was struggling, but she was doing all she could to keep the doors open. When two men with strong accents entered her store, she wasn't sure what to expect. I really enjoyed the banter between Olivia and Nicholas, he certainly pushed Olivia to her limits and she stood her ground and didn't take his crap. Every time these two got together I could see they were falling deeper and deeper... and even I wanted the fairy tale!

It's been a while since I've read a book by Emma Chase, but this book showed me what a wonderful author she is. I loved every moment of being in this world, watching the characters enjoy the time they had, and for Olivia to show she was a strong woman and could adjust to Nicholas' world. There was a terrific cast of characters that fleshed out the story more, Olivia's sister and work friend Marty, and Nicholas's brother Henry, cousin Simon and Franny. They brought their own style and flair to the storyline and I want to get to know each of them more! I NEED to get back into this world, soon!

I have three teasers today... Prince Nicholas is just so dreamy! I hope you enjoy these!

“Well, then—I’ll be over there in case you’d like to join me.”
“That’s what you’re going to do all morning? Stay here?”
“That’s the plan, yes.”
“Don’t you have… stuff to do? Important stuff?”
“Then why aren’t you doing it?”
He searches my face, those eyes falling to my mouth like he can’t tear his eyes away. “I like looking at you.”

“I… I wasn’t sure what you had planned for tonight. You didn’t tell me.”
Those long lashes blink, but he doesn’t say anything. I raise my hand toward the kitchen.
“I can go change if this isn’t—”
“No.” Nicholas steps forward, his hand up. “No, don’t change a thing. You’re… absolutely perfect.”

“You look breathtaking, love. I can’t decide if I want you to stay in that dress forever or if I want to rip it off you right now.”
