The Irresistible Royal,  Alyssa J. Montgomery

The Irresistible Royal,  Alyssa J. Montgomery

The Irresistible Royal (Royal Affairs) by [Montgomery, Alyssa J.]

Genre: Romance

I’m an eclectic reader and this sort of romance isn’t one I pick up often, but after a heavy fantasy read, erotic romance, intense suspense I love to get lost in a straightforward easy to read piece of fiction and this is perfect for those times. Often what looks like a great read for those occasions turns out to be a cut’n’paste dumbed down story and though I want an easy read I need need t to be a solid, realistic– ish story.

Marco is lovely, he’s got sound reasoning behind him for not believing Chloe, but of course I could understand her hurt. She’s a great character too, brought up by her father who she loves she’s strong, independent, and has worked hard at her career. She deserves her success. Her mother is a classic, selfish lady, and I do love finding characters like her in a read, deliciously amoral, always out for the angle that best suits themselves. Alyssa really made her a fabulous character, one we can all love to hate!
So Marco sees Chloe at a party, and they sizzle, right from that first glance. He doesn’t want romance, relationships etc. the love of his life died and he’s not looking to replace her. Chloe is the classic “good girl” doesn’t do one night stands, only has sex within relationships and she’s had precious few of them. The party though, meeting her mother and being so disappointed in her all lead her into an uncharacteristic decision that has serious consequences. Funny how fate works, how it doesn’t take any notice of what we want, what we plan…

It made for a fun read, an easy story but still with some solid emotion and drama packed in. Its not a books I’d reread I think, but was perfect for what I wanted at that time, an easy but genuine tale.

Stars: Four, fun and light but with some depth to it in parts, and very real feeling characters.
