*Second book in the Princess for Hire series - some spoilers*

Desi has a unique ability of magic, which lead her to a job at Facade.

After her jobs at the first level, Desi must become complete her BEST (Betterment of Elite Sub Training). She must become competent in classical music, courtly dances from the 18th and 19th century, history of French royalty, 18th century art and architecture, and public speaking. After she masters these skills before she can become a level 2 substitute.

Her first assignment after her promotion relieves a 13 year-old Princess of a social obligation. Millie has no desire to attend any function where Lord Gavin also in attendance. Things don't go according to plan and Desi's forced not only in talking with Gavin, but also dancing with him. Desi hopes the Princess won't be to unhappy with her.

As Desi performs more BEST, she learns more about Facade. She's not sure agrees with Facade's stand. Desi can't argue with the perks of the job. As the company's rumored to go through a massive transition, she can't help but wonder what direction the company will take and who will be left standing.

My Thoughts: I LOVE this series, which starts with Princess for Hire. I Love the magic. I love the Princesses and how Desi has to insert herself into their lives. I love Facade and learning more about this awesome company. (Do they have any openings?). I love Desi and how she changes her world (and often gets into trouble). I love the romance. I wish the ending hadn't just ended - because I want more!

The Royal Treatment is a whole lotta' girlie princess fun! I am an especially girlie girl and princess books are very special to me. They are the perfect outlet for my glittery pink and royally magical day dreams.

In Princess for Hire, Desi first learned how to use her magical powers to stand in for real princesses. Now, she is expanding her skills at the Façade Agency and getting into even crazier situations and subbing for more challenging princesses and celebrities. It was great to read and laugh about all of Desi's training at the magical Façade Agency.

Roller skating on a boat! Now that's something I wasn't really expecting Desi to have to learn, but she does. This gives you an idea of the funny little surprises you'll find in The Royal Treatment!

Working for Façade is not all Desi has going on. She is also starring in her high school play, A Midsummer Night's Dream, along with her crush, Reed. He has a secret of his own to share. I liked getting a glimpse into Desi's everyday life and how nervous she got about the kissing scene. Lindsey Leavitt works the magical and the everyday together just right.

What girl doesn't want to live the life of a princess, even if it is only as a sub? I know I would jump at the chance. I can't wait for book three and more super sub adventures for Desi.

Royal, glittery, girlie, diamonds, pearls, and a splash of pink. And it's all wrapped up in a beautiful teal background. Love it!

I am a big Lindsey Leavitt fan, and THE ROYAL TREATMENT did not disappoint! That being said, she took this book to levels that I couldn't even have imagined! The world building was awesome. We learn a lot more about the Facade agency and also more about Desi as she is thrown into one hilarious situation after another. The final plot twist was jaw-dropping and now I am totally dying for book number 3 to see what happens!

I read Princess for Hire and thought it was really, really cute. I read The Royal Treatment and thought it was really, really good. The Royal Treatment really takes the world we learned about in the first book and steps it up a notch - all the way to Level Two, actually.

Desi, as a character, learned a lot about herself in Princess for Hire, but she continued to grow as a character in The Royal Treatment. I loved being in her head as she dealt with a lot of moral dilemmas, with what was considered right and wrong.

I loved all the things Desi had to accomplish before being able to go on missions. Learning about royal gossip, classical music, etc - it all made the whole princess double thing way more real because Desi actually had to learn all this stuff, rather than just being good at it automatically. That was a really awesome touch.

Okay, and the ENDING. I sort of guessed at it, but I didn't really expect it, so it was a really freaking awesome cliffhanger and now I can't wait for the third book in the series.

Overall, The Royal Treatment is a great follow-up to Princess for Hire. I had a lot of fun reading both books and I love how the story is progressing through them. If you're looking for a really adorable, fun, and enjoyable book, I definitely recommend this series. It's part coming-of-age, part princess, and part magic, and it all combines into one great book.

Lindsey Leavitt’s Princess for Hire series is so fun. I loved the first book and was not disappointed with the sequel: The Royal Treatment. It is a perfect tween read: cute and clean with a great message.

There was some foreshadowing in the first book that I picked up on and was pleased when this story went the direction I thought it would. Lindsey Leavitt is a great writer. Her books make me smile and I highly recommend them.

If you are looking for a light, fun, quick read look not further than The Princess for Hire Series!
