Emma Chase is hilarious, I've been a huge fan of her books, but she's outdone herself with Royally Matched. I completely devoured this book in one sitting. The characters come alive, the jokes never miss, and the sex is downright sinful. This one is going in the memory books for sure!
Last year, Royally Screwed was one of my top-favorite listens of the year, so I knew I had to listen to the sequel, Royally Matched. It's always hard to follow-up a smash hit. So call me doubly impressed with score two for Emma Chase! I loved the witty and fun nature of Royally Matched, while at the same time admiring its message of responsibility and growing-up and tackling one's life goals. Moreover, I'm a huge fan of the wallflower finds her HEA, so the fact that the playboy prince falls for the reticent, book loving heroine was icing on the cake. Moreover, Shane East is simply divine--I could listen to his cocky, assured and sexy voice narrate boilerplate contract language (in other words, just about anything)--so the fact that I got to listen to him narrate a book I enjoyed was simply audiobook nirvana!
Prince Henry is now the heir to the throne of Wessco (a fictional country--at least I think!) after his older brother, Nicholas (the hero from Royally Matched) abdicated the throne to marry his American heroine, Olivia. Having never been groomed to assume such responsibility, his carefree nature is challenged with the mounting duties. So Henry decides to do what he does best, blow off some steam by accepting an invitation to be the bachelor of a reality TV series that is meant to help him find his queen.
As a number of royally qualified potential matches are summoned to the castle for the show (gentry ladies from Wessco, who must be virgins (among other qualifications)!), Henry begins to form a friendship with the sister of one of the contestants (Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum--yes, that's her name and Shane East had some real fun recreating dialogues where the couple discuss it). Because she's seen as safe, Henry squirrels himself away in her room at nights to evade the cameras. Of course, it's all strictly platonic even if they both begin to feel the heat of their attraction. Nonetheless, Henry has signed a contract obligating him to bring the show to its conclusion (a responsibility he is determined to for once see through to its conclusion), and Sarah is determined to find herself a dependable, non-playboy type of man. Will they both carry though with their obligations/supposed desires or is love sometimes worth risking it all for?
Shane East and Andi Arndt narrate Royally Matched in the typical new adult fashion with Mr. East narrating the chapters from Henry's perspective and Ms. Arndt the ones rom Sarah's. Ms. Arndt does a fine job with her part achieving all of the classic hallmarks I look for in a good narration, including differentiation of characters, communication of emotion, and good pacing.
However, I just could not get enough of Mr. East's narration! Think of him as a British, Sebastian York. What a sexy and confident voice! And his ability to deliver tongue in cheek humor is off the charts. It's like the Royally Series was written for him--he is just that good! I would give him 5+ stars if it were possible, and definitely hope that he narrates many, many more books in the future.
All in all, Royally Matched is a must listen for romantic comedy lovers.

I couldn’t believe it but I loved Henry MORE than Nicholas – sigh!!
Henry was the perfect blend of naughty and sweet. He was a bit lost at the beginning. Thrust into the position of heir to the crown. Unprepared. But not necessarily unwilling. He was just not ready yet, and he drowned his doubts in alcohol and girls.
Until he overheard his brother’s undeniable faith in him. He was astonished to hear Nicholas’s prediction that he would make a better King than Nicholas ever could have been. That was exactly what Henry needed to hear. It didn’t turn him into a choirboy overnight, but it gave him the strength to believe in himself.
His decision to be the star of a reality show might not have seemed like such a great idea, but in the end it turned out to be the RIGHT one.
Henry met Lady Sarah Von Titebottum.
Sarah and Henry had this wonderful connection from the very first moment.
They didn’t have to pretend or hold back. Henry could be Henry, and Sarah felt more confident to come out of her shell. Henry was so very gentle with her, but still challenged her in such a sweet way that it never overwhelmed her. He definitely showed her his gentler more sweeter site.
Their friendship turned into something deeper.
Gradually, and naturally their mutual attraction brought them even closer.
Henry found in Sarah a confidant, someone that listened without judging. A person that supported his ideas and didn’t belittle his wild ways.
The idea of having Henry being part of a bachelor tv show was hilarious. At the beginning Henry thought it was a free for all, lots of making out, sex and having fun – he found out differently.
After meeting Sarah, he rapidly lost interest in doing anything wild with any of the contestants. He came to understand Nicholas position that something were just more important in live. And Sarah became very IMPORTANT to Henry.
The entire story was wonderfully sweet – a picture perfect fairytale!!!
I loved it!!
It was one of those feel-good stories. Royally Matched left me with a warm glow. I smiled non-stop. And I wouldn’t have changed a word, paragraph, or chapter in the entire book.
A swoony prince and a shy girl that believed in romance, and a happily ever after. I think we all would have loved to be in Sarah’s shoes – at least I DID!!! ♥♥♥♥
