“That once upon a time, a pitiful lad met a shy, lovely lass and together they became something more… something strong and beautiful and forever.”
Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, was used to living a carefree life. As the younger son, his royal responsibilities were low. He is used to having fun and doing what he wants until he is plunged into the life of future King. Henry feels overwhelmed and doesn’t handle things very well.
As a way to decompress he decides to have his last bit of fun before all his responsibilities get too extreme. While the Queen is giving him some space he decides to do the reality TV show- Matched: Royal addition.
Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum is a shy bookworm who loves her job and has a few close friends. Sarah and her fun-loving sister Penelope (or Penny) both get approached to participate in the reality show. Sarah has no interest in the show but her sister Penny is excited but can’t do it without her. So it is arranged that Sarah will go along to supervise Penny but won’t participate in the show.
The show isn’t at all what Henry thought it would be and he finds himself overwhelmed by all the women. However he meets Sarah on set and the two start talking and he finds himself drawn to her and has a calming effect on him during all the chaos.
Henry and Sarah share a close connection and during many of their talks you start to see a different side to Henry. He has a big heart and is truly a good and caring person but also a lot of fun. Sarah, although shy really stands up for herself and she’s really sweet. I loved Sarah and her love for literature and the classics (as I love many of her favourite books as well) and how she knows what she wants.
These two really bring out the best in each other. This was a fun and entertaining read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I can’t wait to read the next book in the series.
