Book: Royally Matched
Series: Royally #2
Author: Emma Chase
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 force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when 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. -Goodreads
Review: I didn't love the first book in this series but I am so glad I gave this one a chance. I loved it! After Henry's brother abdicates the throne, Henry quickly goes from his grandmother's favorite to her least favorite. He cannot do anything right, nor does he seem to care to. When an opportunity arises to be the star of a Bachelor type show, he jumps at the chance. Of course, things behind the scenes aren't what the appear and he finds himself spending more and more time with Lady Sarah, whose sister is a contestant on the show. Can they find true love?
This was sweet and most importantly-funny. I chuckled numerous times throughout the story. I loved Henry and Sarah together and can't wait for the next in the series.
