Synopsis: 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 really enjoyed this book, I loved the romance story and what it had to do with royalty, I’m thinking this is loosely based on the British royal family, but really only in them being British royalty, being two brothers, and they lost a parent (or in this book both parents), but only in these minor similaties.
I really enjoyed both of the main characters, I like that there was so much more to Nicholas than originally meets the eye, also it’s implied that he is a major player because of the barmaid that meet in the beginning, but I like how it’s talked about in past tense because even though he still is one when he meets Olivia, it seems to be able to foci’s more on their relationship because of this.
I love how we do get to do some traveling because it starts in New York on her turf, and then moves his half way through the book. I do think this shows development in their relationship, in New York they really weren’t in an official relationship but when they go to Wessco I feel it marks where they become more series about each other.
I did see the ending coming so I didn’t get to feel that initial shock about the surprise, but that didn’t take away from the ending what so ever, I still really enjoyed it and I can’t wait until I get to continue.
