|His Royal Hotness #1|
|September 19th 2017|
|He’s a womanizer. He’s cocky. He’s not exactly a prince. Only he technically is. Meet your new royal obsession in this addictive novel from New York Times bestselling author Tracy Wolff.
Being rich opens a lot of doors. When you’re rich and royal, those doors lead to a new bedroom every night. I should know. The tabloids call me His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian of Wildemar. Women across the world see me as a naughty fairy tale, an image I’m happy to indulge. As the spare to the heir, I’m the prince with none of the power . . . and all of the perks.
Then my twin brother is kidnapped, and suddenly I’m the one who could be king. The crown chasers start circling—and yet it’s a luscious waitress who catches my eye. With a smart mouth and the curves to back it up, Savannah Breslin is as brazen as I’d expect an American commoner to be.
But Savvy’s not interested in playing Cinderella. As sexy as she is, she’s no stranger to heartbreak. Besides, a nice guy wouldn’t drag her into all the drama that comes along with royalty. Lucky I’m not a nice guy. And, as it turns out, I might not even be her first prince. . . .
This weeks book of contradictions is Royal Pain (His Royal Hotness #1) by Tracy Wolff. I am a reader always looking for flawed and deep characters and this plot seemed to be a source that would fill my needs.
Imagine my surprise at the first chapter where I actually rechecked if I had the right book in mind. The plot started so superficial that I was wondering if there was any depth to the male lead. And given the fact that the female lead was kind of thrown into the story with an instant lets call it “lightly” attraction.
Ahm well lets say I was starting to worry about how my review would look. And I have to be blunt and honest – I usually have a 3 chapter deal with myself. That means if a book can not capture me within 3 chapters … my review will not end favorable.
What saved the story for me was my need to find out something. So I read on and while I did that the male lead suddenly showed more of his character and received a new layer that I liked. So suddenly after a slow start the story got rolling as also the female lead showed a new side.
On the other hand the string that was actually leading the plot felt a little mysterious or strange? I am not sure what would be the most precise word. I was imagining a ton of things and my mind was spinning because of the fact that the title lets the reader assume there is more to come.
There was also a lot about those secondary characters – like the male leads security detail – that I feel would make great stories.
I was not fully satisfied at the end of this book but as my first impression of it was wrong too … we will have to see what the future brings.
