From USA Today and Amazon Charts bestselling author Meghan Quinn, comes the much anticipated sequel to the bestselling royal romance, ROYALLY NOT READY. Full of sweltering heat, suspense, and mystery, Quinn surprises you with some twists and turns while also delivering a perfect happily ever after. 

I have two responsibilities as the new heir to the throne:

1. Get married.
2. Have babies.

Sure, becoming queen one day is part of those new responsibilities, but as long as King Theo is in charge, I don’t have to add a coronation to my list.

That’s why I find myself in the throes of wedding planning, pre-wedding classes with my broody, over-protective fiancé, and counting down the days until we can finally say I do.

But with every day we grow closer to our wedding, we seem to grow apart.

Our commonalities are tested.
Our faith in each other is questioned.
And our safety is threatened.
The only thing working? The command he has over me in the bedroom.

I keep telling myself, it’ll all work out. We just need to make it to the wedding day. Except, when the day finally comes, everything falls apart.

We might have made it through the last few months together, but now I’m not sure we’re going to make it out of this alive.

My Review

This one you do definitely have to read the first book, instead of being a series where there is a different couple in each book. And wow did this start out with something that I figured would be impossible for Quinn to write about with her usually steamy stories. Although she definitely started this story with a bang, if you catch my drift. But their predicament of waiting until the wedding definitely fed into all the things that started to come between them as the wedding plans progressed.

There was so much drama, and so many things going on. When it all kind of hit the fan about halfway through, I started thinking back to what I’d read and wondering who could be the mole, the person who had sent the letters that made security so important. The majority of the people I started guessing because after the first book I figured it would have to be someone I wouldn’t guess. However the bad guys, well some of them the moles in the castle anyway, were people that I think the author gave us definitely clues to in their introduction as well as just the way they behaved and contributed to the distance between Keller and Lilly.

Now, Quinn found ways to still get some pretty steamy scenes into the book both while they were abstaining, as well as after things really started to pick up with the drama and danger at the end. And she kept me at the edge of my seat wondering how we would get to our HEA for this story with all the things that kept going wrong at the end.

However, even though I know that it adds to the drama and is used by every author pretty much, the miscommunication at the end was so frustrating for me that I ended up going to a 4.5 stars instead of the full 5. While I got it somewhat during the whole wedding planning, in the end it made me so mad that the culprit being stubborn, I won’t say which one of them, was doing that as if they didn’t know the other person that they claimed to love.

I don’t know if the author has any more planned for this world, but I would love to see her cousins get their own HEAs in their own books in the future. Especially since their country celebrates with cheese, the best food in the world, instead of the cod that Lilly’s country loves so much.

Samantha Brentmoor, John Hartley, and James Joseph are narrating in duet this sexy, royal romance with a twist, and you will not want to miss their performances! ROYALLY IN TROUBLE releases in audio on June 12th! Pre-order your copy today!

      I know it is something all authors do, but at some point I just get irritated with something so easily solvable!

    • Lisa Mandina

      Yeah, the miscommunication was pretty annoying. And I agree that it was getting a bit long in the end too. But I think the ending fixed all my issues for the most part.

  1. Sorry the miscommunication frustrated you so much. Evidently it didn’t bug me enough to comment on when I wrote my own review but thinking back on it, I’m annoyed now. lol. It’s funny how someone pointing something out makes you think. Great review!

      Lol, I’ve had that happen when I read someone else’s review, and then I’ll be like, oh yeah!
