Lately, I’ve been on a “monarchy” kick. I’ve watched all sorts of shows on Netflix in relation to Monarchies and boy have I been educated. These people were FREA-KAY and pretty ruthless too. So, when I saw Royal Player come up on my recommendation list I figured I might as well keep the party going.
Blurb: Charlie Davenport is the bad boy of British sports – and third in line to the throne. He’s a beast on the courts, and a wild animal in bed (according to all the tabloids). Girls are lining up for chance at his crown jewels, and when I stumble into the wrong Wimbledon dressing room and catch a glimpse of his game, set, AND match, I can see why.
So what’s a little good luck kiss between f̶r̶i̶e̶n̶d̶s̶ strangers?
I know better than to get involved with a bad boy like Charlie. But now he’s on a winning streak, he thinks I’m his lucky charm – and you know what’s luckier than a kiss?
Suddenly, I’ve got paparazzi on my trail, exes coming out of the woodwork — and you don’t know ‘cutthroat’ until you’ve seen a pack of hungry socialites set loose near the Royal Family.
I’m in way over my head, and even worse – I’m falling in love. Can this American girl win her Prince Charming? Or will we both crash out of the championships in flames?
Review: Not what I was expecting. It’s cute and I enjoyed reading it but not Royal in the sense that I was hoping. Nonetheless, I fell in love with the Prince. Don’t we all. Emmy and Charlie’s story is what we’ve all come to expect with the whole “regular girl meets rich/royal guy” and falls in love so don’t walk into this expecting much more. That doesn’t take away from the story though because I knocked this out in one sitting. The chemistry and banter between the two main characters kept me interested not to mention the steamy sex scenes. I will say at some point the humping became a bit much for me and I resorted to skimming but, hey, if bumpin uglies til you’re raw is your thing have at it #NoJudgementZone
The “comedy” was ok some things were funny while others fell flat and I am seriously wondering what it takes to make something a romantic comedy. A few jokes here and there does not a comedy make my lovies. However, the drama is in full swing and that I totally love. Nothing makes a story worth reading like full on “Oh no she didn’t” drama and this has a touch of that. Like I said, it kept me turning the pages so 4 solid stars for this, okay maybe more like 3.75 stars…yeah that’s about right 3.75 stars for this romantic “almost” comedy.
