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.

Review by: Gina
I was a little hesitant on reading this book because of the reality show aspect of it. I've read a couple before and didn't care for them but being Emma Chase I had to give it a try and I really enjoyed it.
While the story does involve a reality show, it wasn't the focus of the book. It just sort of hung out in the background and I was okay with that.
The book did start off a little slow for me. But as the story went on, it did pick up. I thrived for those moments with Henry and Sarah's interactions. They were full of sweetness, and laughter, and sincerity. Every Time they would interact with each other I got really excited. It may sounds silly to get excited when the two main character interact with each other because that typically happens in book but there was just something different about it. A certain feeling I would get that I can't quite put my finger on, but either way I just loved it.
I enjoyed the characters and I thought they were well developed and showed growth as the story when on. It is the typical playboy/bad boy who is tamed by the good girl kinda of story but I still enjoyed it. There were a few hills and valleys the couple had to travel through to get their happily ever after but it was all worth it in the end.
Overall, it was a really great story! While it started off slow, it picked up and kept me interested from there. The characters were a lot of fun to read and the story was well written. I am really excited to see what is next with this series!

Oh my PRINCE HENRY!!! The wild child is back y'all! He's back!! If you read Royally Screwed and fell in love with Henry, let me tell you.. you will love him even more after reading Royally Matched!
Royally Matched was hilarious, fun, and swoon worthy. With a character like Prince Henry, you know that good times are ahead! I wish I could hang out wit the guy, I'm sure it'd be crazy fun. I loved watching this man come undone for Sarah. Who by the way I totally like this girl! Sarah is the homegirl! She is so relatable. Nerdy, bookworm, shy.. I think all readers in some ways will see themselves in her. Not only do I love that this creates a greater connection with the book, it also made it so much easier to pretend I'm Prince Henry's love interest bahaha ;-)
If you're looking for a fun, light-hearted romance, then Royally Matched is the book for you!
