I Kind of Liked It!
Royal Scandal is a sweet friends to lovers romance that is full of secrets and lies!
Ten years ago Colin and his family were exiled from their country after the murder of their parents, just kids themselves, they didn’t know what to do, but Colin being the eldest led the charge to care for his siblings and take them under his wing. Living in North Carolina and running Sinclair Enterprise is what kept him sane, and the crazy and lovable Della who quickly became his best friend. Della is content with her life, she’s a “maid” and loves helping Collin take care of his children in her spare time, but there’s always that tug in her that wants something more. When these two are presented with a marriage in name only, and she finds out who he really is, things change between these two.
What I loved about this story was Della and Colin’s love story, these two are perfect for one another, once they came out with all their truths. What I didn’t like was how secretive Colin was with her for 10 years. If he said he trusted her for so long, I feel as if he should have told her years ago the truth instead of blind siding her the way he did. Della was also kind of too forgiving of Colin at the same time, but the heart wants what the heart wants, and these two are meant for one another. I loved these two together, but everything seemed too easy for these two, and all the drama seemed to be around the family and we never really got any answers around that. I am hoping that we get answers in the siblings books as to how things work out for Theo, Charlotte, Imogen, etc. because there really are some unanswered questions that as a reader I need to know.
This was a very quick read that definitely a modern day fairy tale, but it’s sweet and romantic, so I enjoyed it. I will definitely be picking up more books in the Royals In Exile Series because like I said, I need answers! If you’re looking for a quick sweet read, I suggest picking this one up today. If you’re ok with being left with some unanswered questions (big ones) with secondary characters, then this is definitely a higher rated book, but to me, I was left with too many questions!
