Royally Screwed was one of those guilty pleasure romance that I so enjoy. Sure, it’s a romance involving a royal and a commoner, something that’s been done a few times, but Emma Chase made it funny, sexy, and added a few twists and turns that made it fresh. The narration by Andi Arndt and Shane East was a pleasure to listen to, making this a MUST LISTEN audiobook.
Nicholas, our swarthy hero, is the Crowned Prince of Wessco, and a royal celeb. He’s super hot, super spoiled, and a prick at times. He’s used to getting exactly what he wants – and when he’s forced to chase down his little brother in New York he finds exactly what he wants in pie maker, Olivia Hammond. Olivia tries to resist, but Nicholas is a hard one to get past. But, she knows from the start that it can only last for a short time, because Nicholas is the future king and she’s just – well Olivia.
Royally Screwed was a fun and sexy royal romp. I was impressed by Tangled by Emma Chase, now this author is officially an “auto-buy” after this. The hero was deliciously sexy and arrogant, the heroine was nice and lovable. They dynamic between the two was almost tragic. The novel follows the typical romance algorithm, but it didn’t seem contrived. Royally Screwed was all sorts of yummy and I can’t wait to get my hands on Royally Matched.

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.
