Royal Chase by Sariah Wilson [ARC Review]
Publication Date: January 26, 2016
Genre: Contemporary, Romance
Format: I received a copy from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review
Royal Chase is the second book in ‘The Royals of Monterra’ series. It is Lemon and Dante’s story of while Dante is on the reality TV show Marry Me and Lemon has to fill in for a missing girl.
Summary from Amazon:
“Booking her client, Prince Dante of Monterra, on reality show Marry Me is a royal coup for PR agent Lemon Beauchamp. But thanks to a last-minute glitch, Lemon must pretend to be one of the contestants vying to win the playboy prince’s love and then live happily ever after—at least until the publicity tour ends.
Prince Dante agreed to go on the show to find a wife, even though he already has the perfect candidate in mind. She’s smart, funny, sexy, and completely uninterested in wealth and fame. She’s also absolutely determined to keep him at arm’s length.
Even if Lemon weren’t already engaged, she can’t trust a notorious flirt like Dante. So she ignores the lingering looks. Those subtle, thrilling touches. That pulse-quickening kiss. Until suddenly, Lemon isn’t playing for the cameras. She’s lovestruck for real, and just maybe, the man behind the title is the one who’s always been in her heart…”
Lemon has her life all planned out; at least the next six weeks of her life. She’s opened her own PR firm, engaged and her wedding is in 6 weeks and she has hooked up the royals with new ways to increase tourism numbers. Her only clients (the royals of Monterra) are signed on to the new season of the reality TV show, Marry Me, and when a few girls find out that he is a royal, they are immediately escorted off the show, leaving a spot open and no one left to fill in. Needing to save her new firm as well as helping out a sorority sister, Lemon agrees to fill in the spot. Dante already knows what he wants in a wife, but Lemon keeps thinking the worst in him. It gives you a glimpse behind the scenes on what you might expect would happen on The Bachelor. But not everything is fun and games when trust is lost and friendship turns to betrayal.
Things I loved:
Things I didn’t love as much:
This wasn’t the best book that I read and I didn’t like it as much as I wanted to. Trust me, I tried really hard to like it but it was very hard. I think this might be because I went into the book with expectations way too high. But other than that, it answered a lot of questions I had in Royal Date. One thing I do wish for is a book about after both Kat and Nico and Lemon and Dante are married and their life at the palace living together.
This was a very clean read and younger audiences can definitely read this book. You do have to read the first book to understand most of what happens and the review for that book will be posted later.
I give this book a 8/10. I would recommend this book and I will read this book again.
Look for my review on Royal Date in a little while! Let me know what you think about the book and if you would read this book.
