This is the second book of the Royal Heartbreaker series from the two authors. I first discovered the book through BookBub when they were offering book one of the series for free.
A brief summary of the book:
Some princes are charming. Others are assholes.
I’ve spent most of my career writing tabloid articles about the royals of Montovia, and Prince Andrew, the heir to the throne, was always the one that intrigued me most. He’s so guarded, so mysterious…so ridiculously attractive.
And then I met him. And I found out he’s the most arrogant, smug, infuriating man to ever live.
He also desperately needs my help.
There are three things I know for sure. First, Prince Andrew has a secret. Second, he’ll do anything to keep it a secret. And third, in spite of how infuriating I find him, I can’t help being incredibly attracted to him.
Which is exactly why I’m in deep, deep trouble…
I was intrigued by the premise of the storyline. The idea of a stuffy prince who hired a sassy journalist in an effort to help him win favor back to the people of Montovia? Count me in.
I’m also reading the first book in the Royal Heartbreaker series, so I’ll be reviewing it separately once that’s done.
Royal Mistake doesn’t shy away from the erotic portions of the book. I find that the pace of the sex scenes were slow and steady without being over the top. For the storyline involving Andrew and Victoria, the character development between the both of them was well done. I couldn’t help but smile at Andrew & Victoria’s banter between each other.
Of course, there are some serious moments (which I won’t mention here to avoid spoilers) but let’s just say that these true to life events humanises the characters even more.
Andrew’s personality, while less charming than his brother Leopold, shows that there’s more to the cold exterior than meets the eye. He starts to soften up as he realises what he truly wants. Victoria acts as the catalyst where she gives him the wake up call he needs and somehow manages to be the voice of reason, even if her life was falling apart.
The sweet and tender moments they both share when having moments of vulnerability were a wonderful touch. Reading their perspectives throughout the book gives an insight on what they’re feeling and how the circumstances changed them.
This is a story you don’t want to miss from the series. You can grab a copy of Royal Mistake over at Amazon.
