Unexpected Rewards by Jane McGarry is a fast-paced read as the author takes us on a perilous journey into palace intrigue, both deadly and petty. Olivia is a strong female character who refuses to compromise her principles for the pampered life of a princess. An interesting story, but for the switching between past and present tense in the early chapters, which is a bit jarring and disruptive. The supporting characters, heroes as well as villains, are interesting and well-developed.
This author shows promise. I give this second book in the series three and a half stars.
I was so captivated by Olivia and Liam and their story that I didn't want to put the book down. I was hooked from the first page and found myself drawn into the mystery of what was happening. I really enjoyed the love story between them and found myself rooting for them and experiencing so many emotions from happy, to sad, to angry as they faced the different obstacles trying to keep them apart. This book is a must read for sure! I really hope that there will be a book 3 so that I can continue to follow all of these amazing characters.
The fact that this was a Clean Reads story made this even better. It just goes to show that you don't need a bunch of raunchiness added in to make a story great.
The female lead, Olivia, is someone that I find myself rooting for throughout the story. She is quite a loveable lead -- a girl with a pure heart, having noble intentions, but is a newcomer in kingdom and kingdom politics. Faced with different odds that seem to come one after the other, she has to find ways to overcome each one -- from fending off others who are determined to disrupt her love with Prince Liam, to having to gain the respect of the King and the Queen, and even to prove the innocence of a close friend.
I also enjoyed the story writing -- it was easy to follow, interesting with no dull moments. I realized much later that this is book 2 of a series, but there was never any confusing moment and you could have just as easily read this as a standalone. Also since this is being told from a first person narrative, i.e. Olivia's point of view, we aren't privy to the King's, Queen's and even Prince Liam's thoughts; so there was a bit of suspense that I find welcoming and added to the intrigue in the story.
All in all, a great read! Highly recommended, and I can't wait to check out the next book in the series.
