Nicholas Hunt is the man I hate.

For good reason.

His opinion of me is tainted by prejudice even before my arrival at his grandmother’s estate, and my first impression of him is just as abysmal.

His arrogance and icy demeanor make it clear that he’s the type of man who’s best handled at a distance.

Fortunately, space shouldn’t be an issue inside this Gilded Age mansion and its lush gardens. If I stick with the servants and he keeps to his sailboat and vintage Porsche, we should hardly cross paths at all. Unfortunately, at Rosethorn, I find that all roads eventually lead to Nicholas Hunt.

Sparks fly as we spar at the dinner table. Fighting words are flung in the shadows of the palatial halls.

We hang suspended in our hatred of one another, painfully oblivious to the heat and tension that build with every moment we’re left alone. We’re liable to kill one another, I think…right up until my eyes land on his lips and a new feeling grips hold of me: lust.

What’s worse?

He knows it.

They say you should keep your enemies close, but when Nicholas tightens his grip on my waist and draws me near, I’m not sure if it’s out of loathing or love.

One thing’s for sure—I intend to find out.

Rating: 2.5 stars

I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek.

But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.

It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.

Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.

I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.

I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairytales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end.

He’s just biding his time.
Making me sweat.

His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.
And he wants me.

Review:

It physically pains me to rate an R.S. Grey book at 2.5 stars, but here we are. In my eyes she is the queen of writing laugh out loud romantic comedies with heroines that are adorably relatable and heroes that make you swoon. Unfortunately, His Royal Highness just didn’t vibe with me.

The two things that bothered me most about this book with the main female character and the romance. Whitney and Derek first met 8 years ago when she was interning at the park. She was 18 and he was 28. He was her mentor. Doesn’t that sound like the beginning of a great age gap romance? Yes. Was it the beginning of a great age gap romance? No. Basically she had a crush on him and he then left to go work at the theme park in London.

Fast forward 8 years later and Derek comes back to the Unites States and is back working at the park. Has Whitney gotten over her school girl crush on Derek? No. Is she dramatic and acts immature? Yes. Does she overreact in thinking that he basically abandoned her when all there was between them was her crush and it’s not like he left her in the middle of a relationship? You bet your ass she did.

Listen. Age gap romances are my weakness. Sign me the fuck up for one of those any damn day of the week. But even though she’s now 26 and he’s 36, she somehow reverted back to 16 with her attitude and immaturity and that just wasn’t for me. Nothing grinds my gears more than adults who act like children.

I’m sorry. This one just wasn’t for me. Over 10 R.S. Grey books under my belt with mostly 5 stars, but I just couldn’t hop on board for this.

Natalie

Dr. Easton is part man, part myth.

He’s a formidable surgeon. Highly respected in his field.

He also happens to be an ex-collegiate quarterback with a classically handsome face.

Are you catching on yet?

He’s horrible.

Beautiful.

A walking Ralph Lauren ad.

He’s also so off limits he should come with a warning label: This way lies heartache.

Not only is he an attending at the hospital where I’m training, he’s also my brother’s best friend. If you’ve lost count, that’s two reasons why I plan on putting this ridiculous crush behind me. Besides, it’s definitely not mutual.

Dr. Easton has never once paid me special attention. No tempting smirks. Not even one subtle innuendo. To him, I’m just another resident—all but invisible.

Connor

For the last five years, I’ve mentored Natalie in the OR, stayed in line, and kept my hands to myself, but it’s been agonizing.

Natalie is trouble in scrubs. A walking temptation I’ve been forced to ignore.

For so long, I’ve wanted her in silence. By the time fate finally gets around to throwing me a bone, my patience has run out.

Natalie’s brother is leaving town, and he wants me to watch over her while he’s gone.

He has no idea how I feel about her.

Neither does she.

But she will.

Haven’t you heard good things come to those who wait, Natalie?

Well…I’ve done my waiting.

Top 5 Books I Read in 2019

Hello lovelies! Can you believe 2019 is already over? I can’t, but honestly, thank the lord. This year was quite mediocre for me in terms of what I read. A few months ago I intended on making this list a top 10, but that didn’t end up going as planned. I just didn’t feel like I read enough amazing books, which is sad since I made it to 50, but oh well.

Putting a list of 5 books together was much easier and I can honestly say I freaking loved these to the moon and back and would suggest these to you all any day of the week.

If you’ve also read some of these let me know! I’d love to know your guys’ thoughts too. And link me to your best books lists for the year! I’m always down to find out about new books.

1. Normal People by Sally Rooney
Good god. GOOD FREAKING LORD. This book hit me in the emotions so hard. And then it kept on hitting me repeatedly until I was curled up on the ground in fetal position. I’ve teared up reading books before (rarely, but it’s happened) but this book straight up had me sobbing. I remember having to take a break because I couldn’t keep reading through my tears. Not everyone is going to have this reaction, but some things going on in my personal life paired with the rawness of this story got me good.

2. Make Me Bad by R.S. Grey
This is by far my favourite R.S. Grey book. I know a lot of people might disagree with me, but that’s ok. To me this was her funniest book to date and I had to stop reading it in public because I would start laughing out loud in the middle of my trek to and from work. I’m too shy to be the girl giggling like an idiot in the middle of a packed bus. Also, Madison was me. I’m convinced R.S. Grey took residence in my brain when she wrote this. It was so nice to read a rom-com with a character who was so relatably awkward without being too much.

3. Flame in the Mist by Renée Ahdieh
I think it’s safe to say that Renée Ahdieh can do no wrong in my world. That was my third book by her and damn, woman. DAMN. She writes in the most beautiful way and always creates these vivid worlds and complex characters. And the romance. THE. FREAKING. ROMANCE. SHE. COMES. UP. WITH. I’m left in a puddle every time because it’s so perfect.

4. Woman on the Edge by Samantha M. Bailey
Please read this thriller. For the love of all that is good, please just read it. From start to finish I was on the edge of my seat needing to know how this baby came to be in Morgan’s arms. I don’t know what else to say without spoiling it (it’s so easy to slip up with a spoiler in a thriller) so just go buy it or borrow it from your nearest library and read it.

40381901

5. Her One Mistake by Heidi Perks
Another thriller you need to get your hands on. It’s told in dual perspective with “then” and “now” timelines and it’s just perfect. I remember getting to a huge part just as I was finishing my lunch at work (this is why you don’t read thrillers at the office…) and my mind was stuck on it the whole rest of my afternoon. Time has never gone by more slowly. It was fast-paced and kept me guessing. This was one of the first books I read this year, and I still instantly think of it now when I think of my favourite books of the year.
