Some men are born responsible; some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry John Edgar Thomas Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well.
Hoping to help her grandson rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora agrees to give him "space" - but while 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, all 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 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, words take on new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like duty, honor, and, most of all, love.

HOLY FREAKIN' COW!
I have no idea.
Shane East can read a book on quantum physics and I'd be enthralled. Andi Arndt flexed her diverse muscle in this one. :) I really liked her as Sara.
This audiobook was a surprise for me, in that I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. The story is about a reluctant heir to the throne (whose older brother abdicated the throne for love) and a shy, bookish young noblewoman who never expected to fall in love. The prince, Henry, sent off by his grandmother the queen, has what he thinks is a brilliant idea to relieve his boredom. He solicits a TV matchmaking show to film there, and she comes along with her sister just as a chaperone. Henry sees Sarah on the first day and is fascinated by her. Every day that passes he becomes deeper involved with his feelings, but the show must go on as it were. There are moments of humor and surprisingly sweet romance. Narration was superb, and Andi Arndt does an amazing job of pulling off an English accent!
Henry never wanted to be king, but when his brother decided to abdicate the throne and marry for love Henry is thrust into the grown-up world of what it means to be the next king. He must find his way to the throne, in a dignified and Royal Manor. His journey won't be easy as he's never taken his role as a prince seriously. Henry decides to join a reality dating show, there he needs Sarah who tagged along with her sister who happens to be one of the contestants vying for the princes attention. Their Journey is filled with unsolicited banter and stark realization's of what's important in one's life. Emma Chase has once again given us the reader a truly enjoyable host of characters to love!
Writer of romantic suspense novels and avid reader of everything.
I don't mind stories that use tropes as part of their tale. The royally series has done that for sure, but in a most enjoyable way.
I was anxious to have Henry's story as I was so angry at Nicholas at the end of the first book. It did not let me down.
Even though you knew what was going to happen as the story began to unfold, I still hung to every word.
These two narrators are some of my favorites.
I am obsessed with audio books! My favorite genre is erotica and romance -- there's just not enough hours in the day to enjoy ...
I like this book and I even like that it seemed to be sending a message -- "Nothing in life worth having is easy, not even for the rich, famous and royal. This story was funny, witty and humorous throughout most of the book and there were even moments where it was endearing. I really liked that all the characters had something significant to add to the overall story. I wish the story had ended with a bit more POW!
The narrators were amazing! They even energized the last few chapters that seemed to drag a bit.
Definitely worth the credit.
This book was great, I adore prince Henry and his personality! Sarah however completely stole the show. Can't wait to see what happens next with the story! The beyonce reference so funny!!! I laughed put loud a couple times and cried so it was a very great book- all the feels!!
Love this series! Great narration and story. I love how the happy ever after wasn't rushed as the characters were strengthened even more towards the end.
Audio Reviewer under Audio Flow. I enjoy delving into the imagination of writers and hearing it read aloud by seasoned and new audio actors.
I have been in love with Henry Pembrook since I met him in Royally Screwed. The youngest Prince, now heir apparent must step up to the plate as next in line for the throne. Ha, of course we don't get that instantly, because this is Henry after all.
Things I didn't expect from this book:
1. Henry is a softy and under the exterior of shenanigans and shagging, he has a huge heart
2. He hurts, and being under the scrutiny of granny plays a big part in who he becomes later in the story
3. He loves 100%. The story between him and the "librarian" Sarah Titebuttom (lol lol lol) is beautifully told.
Again, this book was not really what I expected, but I so enjoyed it. I love the characters and it also dealt with some issues that pulled at my heart and yes, I cried.
Henry is the best and he matures over time and I love him even more for it.
- Shane East! He is so amazing. Full of heart and passion for this character. Love what he brings to this British tale and his emotions. Especially in the scene involving "Sense and Sensibility"...Pacing perfect and I actually love his voice, tone and infliction he gives the female characters. Especially granny.
- Andi Arndt always brings her "A" game and I enjoyed listening to her portrayal of Sarah and the other characters. She does a great job with the accents, pacing and gah, that Sense and Sensibility scene I think was the best and worst for me emotionally. That and Penny telling Henry about Sarah's ailment. Great job!
"A fabulous book 2 !!"
Henry's book did not disappoint in fact I think I loved it even more than book1 😀
Henry and Sarah's story made me laugh, sigh, blush and cry !! It was sexy and romantic with a wicked sense of humour😂 both narrators were great and well suited the characters Andi Arndt is a favourite ! 5stars Emma 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟
"Funny, romantic, sexy and sweet"
Move over Sebastian Yorke, there's a new kid in town and my oh my Shane East has the most amazing voice!
Putting aside the amazing narrators (Andi Arndt) is great as usual. The story is wonderful, the characters have substance, its unpredictable, it's sweet and romantic and funny and you don't want it to end, really hope there is a sequel for this couple because I want to know what's in store for them
