|From award-winning author Jenna Sutton comes a story of two princes who discover that falling in love is messy…
Prince Leo’s icy demeanor has earned him an amusing nickname—the Polar Prince. Unfortunately, the king doesn’t see the humor. If Leo wants to secure the throne of Alsania, he must improve his image. Participating in an organ donation campaign seems like a good start. He expects to donate his organs on his deathbed, so he’s surprised to be matched with a complete stranger who needs his help now.
Tessa Lulach hates to admit it, but she’s a damsel in distress. When a handsome prince offers to save her with a hunk of his liver, she joyfully accepts. She can’t wait to feel like herself again and return to her beloved flower shop. Instead, her identity is revealed, and the quiet life she loves is turned upside down.
As Leo and Tessa deal with the nosy public and ruthless paparazzi, she realizes the Polar Prince is much warmer than he seems—scorching hot, in fact. He willingly gave her a part of his liver, but can he give her his whole heart?
Everyone loves Prince Marco of Alsania, despite his reckless antics … or maybe because of them. So why does sexy schoolteacher Cassie Lulach prefer a boring investment banker over him? Wounded by her indifference, he has an erotic encounter with a masked woman at a royal ball who reminds him of the one he really wants.
After another failed relationship, Cassie is frustrated with immature, inconsiderate guys. Wanting to escape reality, she attends a masquerade ball and finds herself alone with a masked stranger. For the first time in her life, she acts on impulse, only to end up pregnant and absolutely clueless about the identity of her baby’s father.
When Marco learns of Cassie’s pregnancy and her plans to raise the baby alone, he promises to be there for her, hoping she’ll finally see him as more than just a playboy prince. But then he discovers she’s the woman from the masquerade ball and panics. Will the truth destroy his chance to win over Cassie, or will he convince her that they can have their own happily ever after?
|It’s no secret that I am not a big fan of short stories and Insta love – so what was the reason for me to choose to review Royal Mess by Jenna Sutton – ? Well it was the plot – it was far to tempting so I went into it knowing there was a 70 / 30 chance of me NOT like it.
But yeah the plot sounded that good so I took the chance.
And what can I say – the 30 % won …
I was mostly drawn to the first story in this book which is the story of the “Ice” Prince Leo. The author goes against anything I have read so far when it comes to royal romances. I guess its no secret as the blurb tells it already – placing his own life at risk – especially being a crown prince – and not because he wants to do good but simply because he wants to improve his image… yeah you figured it out #controversial much ?
So I had to find out where this would go.
And the author really went for it full force with no excuses. I love the traditional approach on royal contemporary romances but as confusing as it sounds it was refreshing the way this was written. Very different. Maybe because it did not feel royal somehow ? – it felt more like a “simple” high profile wealthy family. But I leave that for all the other readers to decide for themselves.
The only thing I can say is that I believe a lot of readers will love this story and if you are looking for an entertaining read that is not to long this might be your book if the blurb appeals to you. While I can not give this story a full 5 star rating as the characters were not deep enough (but that was to be expected of a novel of this length) – it still was much better than I had originally hoped.
