Charlie Davenport is the black sheep of the royal family. He is second in line to the throne and is the spare heir. Wild partying, drinking and sleeping with different women is what the tabloids portray his reputation to be. Little does anyone know, his real passion is tennis. And his luck is about to change a whole lot better because of one kiss from an American.
This witty rom com is light and airy without all the drama and suspense. It is also a very quick read for anyone looking for some laughs. I dislike Emmy because she is somewhat boring until she met Charlie. She practically had no life before she met Charlie and personally in my opinion, she is very weak without any backbone. I like my heroine independent with a lot of sass. Nevertheless Charlie more than made up for her shortcomings. He is the bad boy Royal player.
I’m very keen and interested in Paige who is emmys best friend. Paige is hot like a pepper with a don’t give a damn attitude and her story will so much hotter and better than Emmy. I hope.
Also, by the end, - spoilers! - I realized this entire book was a near exact copy of the movie “Wimbledon.” Tennis player no one expects to win, American woman and his need to hook up before each match, and even the final match being interrupted by rain, allowing for the h and H to make up and then he wins, and embraces her in the crowd... just like the end of the movie. Come on. There’s fan fiction and there’s plain old ripping off. With a little more effort, the story could have been something good.
Emma is in London to hangout with her best friend, see the sights, gain inspiration for her clothing designs and earn some money for college. What she didn’t expect is to meet a prince on her first day of work!
Charlie is at Wimbledon and is not expected to win. He is expected to play well but he never goes into a game without a good luck kiss. Lucky for him, a girl happens upon his changing room and with that kiss, it seems to change the whole trajectory of his playing! Now, only if she told him her name.
When Emma and Charlie reconnect and are properly introduced, what was supposed to be a chill time in London is ratcheted up 1000 fold, especially when their relationship becomes public. The press have no chill, Charlie’s royal family and PR team are pissed and Emma can only hope that her embarrassing past is kept hidden.
While I enjoyed this book (both Emma’s and Charlie’s friend offer comic relief), I thought that Emma gave in too much. She focused so much on his being a prince that she ignored a lot of his behavior without demanding an apology.
But, while I may fault her for deferring to Charlie too much for my liking, she was a woman who knew her body, was not afraid or ashamed of what she had to work with and unapologetically dressed herself to make herself happy.
In the end, I had a great time reading this book and look forward to book 2 in the series!
Charles “Charlie” Davenport was the bad boy of tennis and the black sheep of the royal family. He was gorgeous and much to his family’s dismay, always in the public eye for his antics.
Emmy Anderson was an american visiting London for the summer. She was beautiful, talented and way out of her comfort zone with the chance meeting of Charlie.
The focus of the storyline was the relationship development between Charlie and Emmy while simultaneously displaying the challenges of living in a glass house while having to live up to certain family expectations, when the desire was strong to live a normal life.
All in all it was mostly a light hearted and quick read - low on drama, high on feels. But of course every book has to have some drama, so as expected McCoy threw in a bit at the end to spice it up. Next up is Emmy’s best friend, Paige, in Hot Bachelor.
