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!
Royally Matched picks up some time after Royally Screwed ended. When we last saw Prince Henry, he is now Crown Prince Heir to the throne of Wessco, a title his older brother Prince Nicholas abdicated and gave up. Henry was always raised as the heir spare, never had to worry about constant spotlight because he was never in line to be King. That all changed in a matter of moments. Henry is a bad boy, childish, stricken with grief in many ways, broken, and 'pitiful' as he calls himself. Does he want to be King? Absolutely not. I first started reading this as if Henry truly resented his brother for dropping such a huge burden on his shoulders.
This story is truly amazing. In many ways, because obviously, who doesn't love a story about a hot prince finding love?? Mixed with love, drama, and reality television. These are just a few factors that made this story so great. While Henry is living away from the Palace, he enters into a contract to participate in a Royal Edition of a hit reality television show called Matched! And enter Sarah. She is shy, quiet, adorable, a BOOKWORM (like many of us are, one reason why i loved her so much), and probably the true definition of innocence. She was not a television participant. I would classify their relationship from beginning to end as a more friendship to lovers story. I adore that version of genre and it really translated into such a good story here! Royally Matched is a book I didn't want to end! I couldn't put it down but found myself in awe and also upset when it was over! Emma Chase really knows how to write a good book and she's really becoming one of my go-to authors already.
Emma Chase went so beyond with this book. A few similarities to Book One if you've read it, but still wonderful in its own way. I would say this can be read as a standalone. It seemed easy enough to follow even if you didn't read the first book. I can't wait to read about Logan in Royally Endowed. There is jokes, and really explicit scenes. The sex is downright delicious and far more entertaining than what I was reading in Royally Screwed! Fall in love with Henry. I did! It would be impossible not to, because if you loved Prince Nicholas in Royally Screwed, you'll double love and adore Prince Henry!! I loved him from beginning to end! Totally going in the Favorites Shelf!! :) Now, if I had to decide which book out of the two I enjoyed the most I would most definitely say Royally Matched!
If you’ve read Royally Screwed, this book continues the story but now with Henry (Nicholas’ brother) as the main character. Henry is not in a great place at the start of the book, his brother has found true love and abdicated the throne of Wesco. Now Henry is the new Crown Prince and future King, a title he definitely never thought he would have nor does he thinks he deserves. On top of that, Henry needs to find a future Queen.
Gosh, I love Henry, even weepy, depressed Henry is hilarious!
“The eighties are a sorely underrated decade in terms of musical composition. They don’t get nearly the respect they deserve. I try to use my platform in the world to bring attention to this travesty by singing eighties ballads whenever I get the chance. Like right now, as I sing “What About Me” by Moving Pictures on the karaoke stage. It was their one-hit wonder and a soul-stirring exercise in self-pity. My eyes are closed as I belt out the lyrics and sway behind the microphone.”
Henry has always being portrayed by the media as a playboy Prince, which is sorta true, but underneath he’s more of a sensitive bohemian. He is approached by a producer to be the star of a dating reality show. After much thought, Henry decides that it would be a great idea because he could potentially sleep with a few women and have fun. Well, he’s in for a big surprise.
Now, I know many people would be turned off by the idea of book about a reality show. This is far from it, I would say that the reality show aspect is more of a backdrop. Plus, since they need to find women suitable to be Queen, virginity is an issue so sex is actually off the table in the show. So, rest assure Henry is not sleeping with these other women. The real relationship is happening behind the scenes! Enter Lady Sarah Titebottum.
Sara was shy, reserved and a lover of literature. She’s not a contestant on the show but is there to accompany her sister who is a contestant. Sara is such a sweet character. I totally loved her references to literature and her overall outlook in life.
“There are meetings in books that stand out, that alter the course of the story. Profound encounters between characters when one soul seems to say to the other, “There you are—I’ve been looking for you.””
“Henry Pembrook isn’t a Fiyero—he’s a Willoughby. A John Willoughby from Sense and Sensibility—thrilling, charming, unpredictable, and seductive. Marianne Dashwood learned the hard way that if you play with a heartbreaker, you can’t be surprised when your heart gets shattered into a thousand pieces.”
Henry is immediately drawn to Sara, to her vulnerability and sensitive soul, and they form a strong friendship that eventually develops into something else. This story is super sweet, and the romance is slow burning.
“What a strange pair we are. The sad boy and the frightened girl.”
It’s also super funny. Their banter at times is hilarious!
The book is also super romantic and hot at times.
““I’m sick of being afraid, Henry. And I’m so tired of being alive . . . but not really living. I want this; I’ve wanted it for a long time. I want . . . you.””
“Anything that came before is nothing. This is all that matters. This brave, stunning girl in my arms is all I will ever need.”
“Then what if he just stood in front of her and said, ‘I’m sorry. And I miss you. I want to be a better man for you and because I love you so much, I actually believe I can be.’ Do you think she’d give him a chance then?”
“I want to change the world with you at my side, holding your hand. I love you, Sarah, and whatever happens, I promise there won’t be a day that I don’t love you with all that I am.”
Overall, I loved this book a lot. It was a great sequel to another great book. Like all other Emma Chase books I’ve read this was sweet, fun and hot. She’s definitely one of my favorite authors and I can’t wait for whatever she comes up with next. I absolutely recommend Royally Matched. And if you haven’t read Royally Screwed you need to pick it up too!
