REVIEW – ROYALLY SCREWED (Royally #1) by Emma Chase



Nicholas Arthur Frederick Edward Pembrook, Crowned Prince of Wessco, aka His Royal Hotness, is wickedly charming, devastatingly handsome, and unabashedly arrogant; hard not to be when people are constantly bowing down to you.

Then, one snowy night in Manhattan, the prince meets a dark haired beauty who doesn’t bow down. Instead, she throws a pie in his face.

Nicholas wants to find out if she tastes as good as her pie, and this heir apparent is used to getting what he wants.

Dating a prince isn’t what waitress Olivia Hammond ever imagined it would be.

There’s a disapproving queen, a wildly inappropriate spare heir, relentless paparazzi, and brutal public scrutiny. While they’ve traded in horse drawn carriages for Rolls Royces, and haven’t chopped anyone’s head off lately, the royals are far from accepting of this commoner.

But to Olivia, Nicholas is worth it.

Nicholas grew up with the whole world watching, and now Marriage Watch is in full force. In the end, Nicholas has to decide who he is and, more importantly, who he wants to be: a King… or the man who gets to love Olivia forever.

I’m not sure how I can go on to read another book after having finished this story, which to me was nothing less than PERFECTION!!! This story utterly and completely swept me off my feet!! Emma Chase has been a favorite of mine ever since I read ”Tangled” and each time she releases a new book, I can hardly wait to get my hands on it. I’m just going to say it – I think Royally Screwed is Ms. Chase’s absolute best work so far!! She brought to life one of my childhood fantasies within the pages of this enchanting book!! Move over Drew Evans, there’s a new book boyfriend in town and he’s sure to sweep many a reader off their feet!! Prince Nicholas Pembroke will be melting many panties and hearts within the reading community!!

Prince Nicholas Pembroke of Wessco has been living the life of a playboy for quite some time. He’s the most sought after bachelor and the ultimate fantasy of women all over the world. But Nicholas is about to be delivered an ultimatum by his grandmother, the Queen of Wessco. Their government is in near chaos because the state of the economy is dwindling and the citizens of Wessco are in an uproar. Most want to take away the power that the royals have over government affairs. The Queen and some constituents are demanding that Prince Nicholas should marry soon, and according to custom, she must be of royal lineage or a born citizen of Wessco. He’s given five months to select his bride and announce their engagement. So what does a man do when he’s forced to do something that goes against every fiber of his being??!! He takes off for New York City, where he plans to live his life to the fullest during the last five months of his freedom. Nicholas never imagined that he’d end up meeting the one woman who would completely capture his heart and own his soul.


Olivia Hammond runs her parent’s coffee shop which hasn’t been doing well since the tragic death of her mother several years back. Her mother’s death left a lasting and devastating impact on her family. Liv’s Dad turned to alcohol to numb the pain and basically left her and her younger sister to fend for themselves. Being the dutiful daughter, she took over running the business and also managed to take care of her younger sister. With all of the responsibilities she has had to shoulder, her love life has been non-existent since her senior year of high school. She’s about to get so much more than she bargained for when a handsome and intoxicated Prince stumbles into her coffee house one cold winter’s night. Nicholas doesn’t waste any time pouring on the charm but he inadvertently sticks his foot in his mouth which ends up putting Liv’s defenses up. The next day when Nicholas wakes up with a killer hangover his friend informs him of what a supreme douchenozzle he had been and it spurs Nicholas to seek out the woman whose striking beauty and fierce attitude, he just can’t seem to forget.

Nicholas and Olivia soon get swept up in a whirlwind romance and when duty calls for him to return to Wessco earlier than planned, he asks Olivia to come with him. It takes some convincing by Nicholas and her little sister, but after she’s assured all will be taken care of at home with the coffee house, Liv is off on an adventure of a lifetime with her sexy Prince Charming!! As you can imagine Liv will meet some less than friendly people who will treat and view her as a gold digging whore and then there are some who will see her for the truly genuine and beautiful person that she is on the inside and out. Nicholas and Liv are becoming to mean so much more to each other and as their five months are almost coming to an end the question is – can they walk away from each other when the time comes?


You know that feeling you get when you fall madly in love with a story and its main characters, and you just don’t want it to end???!! That’s how I felt reading this one!! I want so much more of Nicholas and Olivia. I loved the epilogue but it left me wanting to get more of these amazing characters!! I know that there are two more books in the works, and I’m just hoping maybe Emma Chase will write an additional novella??!! One can hope anyways…right??!!

ROYALLY SCREWED is LIVE!! Go on and one-click!! Drop what you’re reading and start this one asap!!!
