Release Blitz with Review: Royally Matched by Emma Chase

  Royally-Matched-3D-bookSome men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well. Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own: Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart. While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye. The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor. But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

To me, this was the perfect fairytale romance. I liked the first book, Royally Screwed, but I LOVED everything about this follow up. The perfection of how these two worked together was indescribable. They illustrate so well why opposites attract couples can be the best kind to read. Henry's devilishly sexy teasing was such a fitting counterpart to Sarah's blushing and easily flustered character. He was spontaneous and the life of the party whereas she liked predictable and avoided socializing.

Ever since we met Sarah in the previous book, I was curious about her background. The episode she had in the bar hinted at some sort of trauma and I knew that the was more than just the invisible girl in the corner. Plus, nerdy heroines are kind of my book crack and she had that written all over her. The fact that she turned out to be a librarian, a book lover, and compared real life people and situations to classical fictional characters made her incredibly endearing.

When we get a glimpse of what Sarah is hiding under her shy exterior, I just fell in love with her even more. Her skill in aikido, her sass and sense of humor that she only lets out with a trusted few, and her strength of character really made her shine.

Henry was the naughty charmer of the family. He's such a wicked tease, used to breaking the rules and having fun. But underneath it all he has the heart of a true leader. When the responsibility of his country's well being is suddenly handed to him, he's completely unprepared.

So what is his answer to this adjustment period? Well, starring in a reality show of course. For one month, he's pushed and prodded by the production team to wine and dine a group of women to be his potential royal match. But it's the quiet girl with the book in her hand that attracts him from the start.

I’m starting to think of it as the Henry Effect, because he makes me feel so many . . . things. Safe and wild and maybe just a little bit mad all at once. Henry makes me want to take a chance. On new experiences. And on him.

Ahhh, this guy gives you all the best feels. He starts out just enjoying his ability to shock and unsettle Sarah, but soon discovers that he enjoys their quiet times together. He's free to be himself around her, and in doing so, brings out her hidden depths. Their late night talks, playing guitar in her bedroom and getting to know one another were so sweet. And he really handled her social anxiety with care and sensitivity. These two were adorable. Their banter had me completely engaged throughout, flipping the pages with a huge smile on my face. This is Emma Chase at her finest in my humble opinion.

“Corrupting the good ones is my favorite pastime.” Oh yes, definitely a Willoughby. I hug my book to my chest. “I’m not corruptible.” His smile broadens. “Good. I like a challenge.”

We really see Henry gain in confidence and shed his careless ways. He matures into the type of man who is a source of strength for his country and the woman he loves. Sarah has always been courageous in how she handled the horror of her past, but her experiences and relationship with Henry help her to grow more self-assured in facing her fears. I adored these two together. It was such a flirty, fun read that on top of it all burned up the pages. Emma Chase gives good romance, I couldn't have asked for more.

I’ve never had someone who was just mine, body and soul—mine to protect and hold and love. And that’s what Sarah is . . . she belongs to me now. We belong to each other.
