Review + #Giveaway: Recklessly Royal by Nichole Chase


Catherine has spent her life being the perfect princess. She’s kept her hands clean, her head down, and most importantly—men at arm’s length. After all, most men are after only one thing, and for Cathy there’s a lot more at stake than her bed; she has to worry about the fate of an entire nation. But at the rate she’s going, Cathy is afraid she’ll give the Virgin Queen a run for her money. She is tired of waiting for someone good enough to come along. She has a plan, and it all hinges on seducing the one man who seems utterly unimpressed by all things royal. The one man she is tempted by more than any other . . .

When David arrives at the royal wedding of his friend, the newly ordained Duchess Samantha Rousseau, he expected to feel uncomfortable and out of his element, but he wasn’t prepared to be targeted by Prince Alex’s gorgeous younger sister. With Cathy’s giant blue eyes, killer figure, and sense of humor, it won’t take long before he gives in. But when he finds out just how innocent the crown princess really is, will he play the part of knight in shining armor or the dashing rogue?

I was so excited to read Cathy’s story. I thoroughly enjoyed Sam and Alex in Suddenly Royal, and I didn’t think there could be anyone sexier than Alex, but boy, OH BOY!! was David just too delicious. I definitely wouldn’t have been embarrassed about demanding he take his clothes off ;P

I loved the slow development of Cathy and David’s relationship. It started off hot and heavy but even though it simmered down a bit, there was still plenty of sexual tension and their chemistry was off the charts. It was interesting to see how they’d navigate the media explosion that was sure to come when they stepped out as a couple, and I was happy that they dealt with things in a mature way.

I had a blast reading this book from start to finish. In fact, I was extremely disappointed when I got to the end and realized there was no more. I could step into the lives of these amazing characters forever, and never get bored. This story was fun, emotional and romantic – the perfect read.
