Publisher's Summary

The Royal Package is a legend in its own time, a pleasure-giving national treasure I’m far too generous to keep to myself.

But I have one rule: No good girls.

And they don’t get much nicer than sugar-and-spice Princess Elizabeth.

You’d think a woman who designs lingerie would be sexy and fun.

You would be wrong. My fiancée is a dreary little mouse, and I have no doubt we’ll make each other miserable if we go through with our arranged marriage.

But I can’t dishonor my grandfather’s dying wish.

Which leaves me one choice — make my sweet fiancée so miserable during our engagement festivities that she calls it quits.

Operation Prince Charmless will get her out of my hair. And then I'm back to Sexy Single Ruler business as usual.

Or that’s the plan….

But my fiancée is feistier than I remembered. Sexier, too. And she loves spur-of-the-moment adventures as much as I do. But did I mention that she hates my guts?

Looks like the Royal Package and I are in for more than we bargained for….

The total royal romantic comedy package!

Ooh! A royal romance from Lili Valente?! Yes, please! Okay, for the sake of keeping this review spoiler-free, I'm going to do my best to keep the details to a bare minimum. We have Prince Andrew, aka the Royal Package, and he's about to marry Princess Elizabeth, who, as far as Andrew is concerned, is a royal bore. But agreements were made between both royal families, and this marriage is his grandfather's dying wish. As much as he loved his grandfather, though, Andrew fears that any marriage with Elizabeth will be a disaster given how different their personalities are. What's a cocky royal to do? Well, ensure that it's his bride-to-be who calls off the wedding, of course, and in order to do that, he's going to be as charmless as possible. It'll be difficult for sure, but a prince like him must do whatever is necessary for the sake of his singlehood, erm, kingdom. The he meets Elizabeth once again, and she's nothing like he remembers. What's he to do now that he's, dare he say it, charmed by his fiery, smart, and beautiful princess bride yet she doesn't want to have a single thing to do with him or his royal package?

This was, indeed, the total royal rom-com package! Lili Valente doesn't disappoint, bringing her brand of wit and humor and romance and sex, then adds in a touch of royalty to the mix. Andrew was a hoot. Seriously, the guy probably thought he was God's gift to women everywhere, blue-blooded or not, but then he's also a red-blooded male who just happened to be royal. His wife-to-be was someone he needed, even he was kinda-sorta-maybe-totally opposed to the idea of settling down to an arranged marriage with a girl he considered meek and mousy. Well, wasn't he in for a surprise and a half? Among the three sisters, Elizabeth was the oldest, so her being chosen as Andrew's bride was a given, and she accepted her fate because it was what was expected of her. Sabrina, the middle sister, didn't think too highly of Andrew, and goodness, but she was a great female character--independent and sassy. I was excited at the beginning of the book, and by the end, I was thoroughly satisfied. Valente's writing and her narration alongside Shane East, who was fab as always, earns royal kudos. Five stars go to Royal Package. ♥

Review: Royal package

Royal Package by Lili Valente is a brand new story with a royal them (I LOVE THESE!!!). Welcome to the fictional royal world of Baden Bergen & Gallantia! Prince Andrew is on a mission to effectively "dissuade" his betrothed from wanting to marry him. They have nothing in common after all and an arranged marriage is NOT how he wants to spend his future life. He loves the outdoors, she is asthmatic, he will be King and be around many people, speaking publicly as will his wife, the future queen, and she has a stutter made worse the larger the crowd. Do you see his point here? Meanwhile, back in Gallantia, Princess Elizabeth (the betrothed) is convincing her identical twin sister to take her place for the good of their kingdom. Just temporarily, until before the wedding, so she can work on her project and bail the family out of debt. Feeling like her hand has been forced, Princess Sabrina agrees. She isn't dissuaded by Andrew's terrible table manners and is enjoying her time outdoors with him, even while trying to pretend to be Lizzy. But, alas, secrets this big can't stay secret for long and between Lizzy, Jeff, Sabrina, Zan and Andrew - there are a horde of secrets. Sweet, funny, romantic with a slow build to the sexy stuff. I LOVED this book and want, desperately, MORE ROYALS from the wonderful Ms. Lili!!! Enjoy

The audio version was spectacularly narrated by Lili Valente and Shane East. I mean - Swoon! Their voices embody the comedy of some of the situations they find themselves in as well as they do the more serious parts of the story. Loved the Audio!

Fun and sexy! Shane and Lili are perfect together!

Royal Package is a new standalone by the fabulous Lili Valente. Lili can write any genre and I was excited to hear she was writing a modern day royal romance! Andrew and Elizabeth were betrothed when they were kids and now it's time to actually get married. Elizabeth isn't ready and she and her twin sister Sabrina switch lives. Temporarily. Andrew wants to be King, but he's not sure marrying Elizabeth is what he wants either. He has a plan to show her a side of the future King she isn't going to like. Guess what? She's not exactly how he remembers her. She's sexier and more fun and likes taking risks. They have a lot in common, but there's just something different about her. Like maybe she's not Elizabeth after all. Sabrina didn't expect to actually like Andrew. What is going on?! He's acting weird and she's on to him. He's up to something. What happens when she falls for her sister's fiancé? Is it possible to get what she's always wanted? This story was so great! I laughed out loud and was cheering for Sabrina and Andrew! It's a sweet, sexy, fun royal romance!

Audio: Shane East and Lili Valente and magic together! Shane voice is perfect for Andrew and Lili's voice is just the right blend of sexy and sweet.

Is it just me??

Is it just me or did her audio sound totally different and echoey? I can’t come up with a better word. The quality difference of it at some points was audible. It wasn’t enough for me to stop listening and I don’t feel like it was all the time. I was impressed with the authors vocal performance and the story was cute enough. It’s a 3.5 out of 5 star book but I rounded up. I don’t want to get into spoilers but the climax was super ridiculous to me but the beginning was cute and I enjoyed the epilogue. I look forward to reading more.

Tried too hard

The plot was one that's been done before. Twin switch has been done. So has wealthy (royal) dude with poor (financially) girl and to help. And of course, Prince Andrew (of a country near Sweden) was "genetically blessed", and the surprise attraction between enemies occurred. Again, nothing new. Still, I admire the author's attempt to change the old plot somewhat. It was insufficient for me to like it, but it may be enough for others. It didn't hold together. Sabrina acted inconsistently even when she knew how her sister and twin Lizzie would act or answer. It made no sense.
Side Note to authors: Just because readers want to escape and want a fantasy, physical perfection doesn't have to be a part of that because that's lazy and too common.
The story has a bit of humor and wry wit. For me, though, the author tried too hard to add humor and wit, so it didn't always work for me. Isn't "turd nugget" redundant? Also Prince Andrew is the developer of an app the author named "Pics with friends". It's similarity to a real social media creation made Andrew unappealing to me, as well.
A second side note: Some people need to really, really, seriously stay away from saying "My ride or die."
Finally, in these times, what author writes a heroine who goes against the hero wanting to use a condom with stupidly saying, "I told you I'm on the pill, and I'm clean"? Fantasy is one thing. Lunacy is another.

LACKS SUBSTANCE

A bit of a disappointment. Lacks depth and substance. Little character development. Forced comedy that wasn't really humorous. Dialogue was topical, no depth. By the way, I put into my reviews the same effort the author put into the material.
