Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well. Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own: Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart. While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye. The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor. But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

This isn't my first book from Emma Chase and it certainly won't be my last. I've read all of her previous work, falling more and more in love with her characters with each book. I'll be honest though, I thought Nicholas and Olivia from Royally Screwed were going to be my ultimate Emma Chase couple. However, Henry and Sarah quickly overtook them and became my favorite couple.

Henry took me completely by surprise. I was expecting some laughs, and I got them, but I wasn't expecting the wealth of emotions I found in him. He won me over so quickly once I saw underneath his humor. Seeing him grow into this amazing man had me in tears. Watching him fall in love? Just beautiful. I swooned and fell madly for Henry, and all the little parts he kept hidden from the public.

Sarah received a brief mention in Royally Screwed but enough of one to make me want to know more about her. I'm so glad to have gotten her story. A quiet, yet fierce, young woman with a past that broke my heart. Around Henry she was a different woman; funny and feisty. The banter between these two had me grinning. Getting to peek into their love was so sweet to me-and I cheered endlessly for her throughout the book. Sarah is the type of woman I would love to know in real life.

The pacing of this book was spot on. The plot was fun and fresh. I loved seeing old characters pop up and getting to catch up with them. There was so much I loved about this book that I could wax on about it for hours-but I truly want you to read this fairytale love for yourself. I highly recommend it and would give it more than five stars if I could.
