Review of The Royal Treatment (Crown Jewels #1) by Melanie Summers

“Gentle Reminder? I nearly peed my pants.”


Genre: Contemporary Romance, British Fiction

Length: 283 Pages

POV: First Person


Ultra-private, ridiculously handsome Crown Prince Arthur has always gotten by on his charm. But that won’t be enough now that the Royal Family is about to be ousted from power once and for all. When Prince Arthur has to rely on the one woman in the kingdom who hates him most, he must learn that earning the love of a nation means first risking his heart.

Twenty-eight-year-old Tessa Sharpe, a.k.a. The Royal Watchdog, hates everything about Prince Arthur. As far as she’s concerned, he’s an arrogant, lazy leech on the kingdom of Avonia. When he shocks the nation by giving her the keys to the castle, Tessa has no choice but to accept and move in for two months. It’s lust at first sight, but there’s no way she can give in to her feelings—not if she wants to have a career or a shred of pride left when her time at the palace ends…

Can two natural enemies find their forever in each other’s arms, or will they ruin each other to save themselves?

Jennifer’s Review:

*I received this book free from Show Me Edits.*

Tessa’s career took a right hand turn into the blogging world, but she made do with what she had. She used her skills to find out what the people wanted to hear about and then ran with it. So what if it was an anti-royal family blog, it paid the bills.

Arthur was facing a potential royal upset. The Prime Minister wanted the royal family out of power and with blogs like Tessa’s he knew the people would agree. The problem was Arthur knew his people needed him, but his mindset wasn’t exactly in the people’s best interest. Tessa changed that.

“How many stars would you give our Arthur here?”

“I don’t know.” I give her a conspiratorial smile. “I’ve never tested him out.”

She went in to get the dirt on the royal family and discovered she’d been wrong. But with her help he will find out exactly what it is that his people need and how to give it to them.

The Royal Treatment is absolutely hilarious! I laughed out loud so many times throughout this book. Tessa could almost be labeled as accident prone and Arthur has made sarcasm an art form. These two characters play very well together.

“Dexter, quit beaver damming me.”
