I read this book every night before going to sleep and it took me almost two weeks, because I kept finding sleep more appealing. Maybe instead of writing a review I should just post a video of an old lady yelling, "Get off my lawn!"

Brief Summary of the Storyline: This is Olivia and Nicholas's story. Olivia is struggling to keep her Dad's restaurant open and take care of her family, and she is not all that thrilled to be propositioned by a hot guy one night. Nicholas has been given an order by his grandmother the queen that he has 6 months before he needs to make an engagement announcement to help unite his country. He is in the US trying to get his brother back home, and he is instantly attracted and intruiged by Olivia when he meets her. He starts pursuing her, and she gives in for a summer fling. There is some family and royalty drama, some sexy times, and some funny moments...but they do get a HFN ending.
POV: This alternated between Olivia and Nicholas's POV.
Overall Pace of Story: Ok. I did have a few issues with some of the time jumps and the abrupt ending (see closure section). I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well otherwise.
Instalove: No, they take a while to develop stronger feelings. Instalust? Yes.
H rating: 3.5 stars. Nicholas. I liked him until he pushed the h away. He did make up for it in the end.
h rating: 4 stars. Olivia. I liked her. She was sweet, loyal, and sassy. I liked how she treated the H like she would anyone else, and called him out when needed.
Sadness level: Low. No tissues needed.
Heat level: Moderate. They have some hot chemistry and scenes, but not so much it takes away from the storyline.
Descriptive sex: Yes
OW/OM drama: Yes
Sex scene with OW or OM: No
Closure: This had another ending with the conflict being resolved and then went straight into the epilogue -- I want some time in between! I also had a lot of unanswered questions, and the way the ending was presented it was just too abrupt for my liking. I would call it a HFN because of my unanswered questions, but others might call it a HEA.
How I got it: I paid the $4.99 on Amazon for it.
Oliva is holding her family together with a very thin thread. She was required to leave college to come home and help her family’s small business. Within the city of New York, Olivia was born and raised by her loving parents, but when he mother passes away from Cancer, her father falls apart. This leave Olivia as the responsible adult taking care of the bakery & café as well as her younger sister.
Nick is in NYC doing some charity work on behalf of the royal family, and waiting out his brother. He stumbles into a little café with his best friend. While there he flirts – crudely – with the beautiful waitress. Olivia has no idea who this jerk with the ego the size of long island is, but he can take his “tea and pie” to go.
Nick is intrigued by Olivia and the fact that she doesn’t recognize him right away. To him it is — refreshing. He is determined to win her over and conquer her body, but he wasn’t expecting to have his heart conquered by her.
I really loved Olivia. If I ever meet her, we would totally be friends. She is a real, rock solid person who doesn’t let people walk all over her. She is selfless and sacrifice a great deal for her family. She wants to be able to have this one time summer fling with a prince, but she is scared that her heart will break by the end of it. Which I think most summer flings have the ability to do.
Nick and Olivia have many up and downs in this romantic fairy tale story. Prince falling madly in love with a common girl. She is then thrown to the wolves when having to navigate her way through the politics of royalty. The story is told from the POV of both characters, so you get to see things from many angles.
I love the ending. I thought this would be a series, following these two characters, but there story is a complete standalone. The next book is about the younger prince. This story is about sacrifice, facing your fears, courage, and forgiveness.
Should you read it? It will get your juices flowing, that is for sure.

The heroine, Olivia Hammond is hardworking and an independent woman but poor. Yet she makes and sells scrumptious pies though she actually hates them. And when she first meets Prince Nicholas in her shop on a cold snowy night and he gives her an indecent proposal she squashes a pie in his face. She has ethics
The Prince is use to getting his own way and wheeling power. So being told "no" leaves him puzzled and confused. And after he does a good deed for children from a home, Olivia relents and agrees to go out to dinner with him. But what should she wear?
His Queen gives him five months of freedom before he has to get married and he decides to spend this time with Olivia. But when he is called home after two months he persuades Olivia to go with him. How is she received by the Queen and other couriers? Will the Prince give up his succession to the throne for his love for Olivia? You MUST read this book. Being royalty is not as easy as it looks.
It was paced really well, it was never boring, it made me laugh out loud and I teared up a few times, mostly at the sappy moments.
Nicholas is charming, flirty, closed off and at times completely clueless about women which makes me love him even more.
Olivia is such a sweetheart, bless her heart for thinking she could resist those dimples. She is the kind of character I'd like to know personally.
What I love is how Emma managed to make all of the characters stand out in their own way, the security team, the quirky sister, the best friend who has zero tact, the broken brother. I love them all.
At times the gooey eyed descriptions were a bit cheesy but it felt natural due to how the characters were written.
I got this book on kindle and I'm going to buy it and the rest of the Royally series on paperback. I can't wait to read more from Emma.
Here's one of my favourite moments from the book;
‘Walking up to the apartment, I feel like a James Bond martini—shaken—but also stirred.’
That line made me laugh so much.
Olivia is constantly struggling against the ever rising tide to keep her late mother’s coffee shop above water. She’s feisty and caring and is doing her upmost to make the best life for her sister. I felt sorry for Olivia throughout because she’s got a lot of expectation on her shoulders, from herself and her father. Then Nicholas walks is suave ass into her life and changes everything.
Nicholas and his upbringing are the antithesis of Olivia and hers. Where Oliva battles for every penny Nicholas comes from a life of unbridled privilege. Nick is in New York to retrieve his hell raising brother Henry and I’m already looking forward to reading Henry’s story. It definitely feels like he’s loosely based a Prince of our own.
Nicholas and Olivia share the narrative throughout the book which serves well because while both characters are so different their chemistry is so immediate that seeing both of their perspectives allows you to feel swept up without feeling like the story is moving too fast. Nick is often quite crass and at first really shows himself up. Olivia has more decorum than Nick at some points throughout. I loved that she was able to keep him on his toes and put him in his place when he needed it.
If you’ve enjoyed Emma’s books in the past or if you are fans of Christina Lauren’s series’ I am sure you will enjoy this. Royally Matched, the 2nd book in the series featuring Nicholas’ brother Prince Henry, is out in February.
The storyline may sound a little clichéd, but this is anything but. It’s a smart, swoony read with red hot bedroom action and the whole story clicks together nicely. Well worth spending your time lost in its pages.
