Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase Review

"Samantha Rousseau is used to getting her hands dirty. Working toward a master’s degree in wildlife biology while helping take care of her sick father, she has no time for celebrity gossip, designer clothes, or lazy vacations. So when a duchess from the small country of Lilaria invites her to dinner, Samantha assumes it’s to discuss a donation for the program. The truth will change the course of her life in ways she never dreamed.

Alex D’Lynsal is trying to keep his name clean. As crown prince of Lilaria, he’s had his share of scandalous headlines, but the latest pictures have sent him packing to America and forced him to swear off women—especially women in the public eye. That is, until he meets Samantha Rousseau. She’s stubborn, feisty, and incredibly sexy. Not to mention heiress to an estate in his country, which makes her everyone’s front-page news.

While Sam tries to navigate the new world of politics and wealth, she will also have to dodge her growing feelings for Alex. Giving in to them means more than just falling in love; it would mean accepting the weight of an entire country on her shoulders."

Warning: Suddenly Royal is not for young children. It's for mature readers, who can handle weird scenes and events. And yes, it does get very weird. Think about it this way. It's like the movie the Princess Diaries 2: The Royal Engagement with older people and more serious people. Same amount of chemistry, but in book form. (Does anyone else wish that Anne Hathaway and Chris Pine will date? They are a dream couple). 

Suddenly Royal is for fans of Princess Diaries. Of course, there are some moments when you wish that Mia would end up with a prince instead of what-his-name. 

It's great. It's a really wonderfully story about family. And birds. Although I'm not sure if these bird facts are true or not. Anyway, it's really adorable. The story, I mean! Not the birds! Not the birds. Not the birds.

What's cute about Samantha Rousseau's story is not the prince. It's actually the plot itself that's cute. All these little events. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Remember those little things? Shall I repeat? I will. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink. Flirt back, flirt forward, flirt, flirt, flirt. Very cute and very, very, thrilling. Romance, itself, is an art to be played by the author. You have to make it believable. And right now, I feel like I'm one weird person...

A very weird person...

Yeah... *sucks in breath* let's go to some other topic. Perhaps I should move on to another book? I'm itching to review Cress (Marissa Meyer's book). But no, I will not be unfaithful until this review is over. 

Let's talk about Sam! Yes, she's awesome. No, she's weird. Yes, I have no idea what questions are you asking so stop asking questions. Anyway, there's some distinctive traits about her. She loves her love ones. She hates photographers. She's really funny when she's drunk. She's afraid of new changes. Did I get everything? Not very 3D, if you ask me. 

The prince. Cinderella's prince. (Joke). Hmm...very cute. Not exactly my type, but very adorable. He sounds like a puppy to me.
