Publisher's Summary

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.

Oh! Henry!

If you could sum up Royally Matched in three words, what would they be?

HOLY FREAKIN' COW!

What other book might you compare Royally Matched to and why?

I have no idea.

What about Shane East and Andi Arndt ’s performance did you like?

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.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

LAWD YES!

Absolutely whimsical!

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!

Lesson Learned

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.

Royally great!!

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.

GET READY TO GUSH & SWOON!!!!

This was one of the sweetest, most romantic, and seriously gush-worthy books EVER! Emma Chase really put together a beautiful story, with characters that you want to know and will surely love. Prince Henry, Granny (the Queen), and the very lovely Lady Sara are adorably imperfect, and completely hilarious, and made this book far exceed my expectations. For me, it's my first fave of 2017. Definitely credit worthy and deserving of all the stars!

Better Than Expected.....


....From the mixed reviews, I was a little concerned I wasn't going to enjoy this story as much as I did book one (which I loved.) But I guess I'm a sucker for royalty, a hot prince, and a fairy tale ending because I really liked Royally Matched!

Some spoilers;
I enjoyed the reality TV spin, but didn't really care for time the characters had to spend apart. I love stories where the characters bring out the best in each other, and Henry and Sarah definitely brought out the best in each other. Knowing these characters had to take the necessary steps to "walk the talk" to not only improve themselves, but improve so they could one day be the leaders they were meant to be, softened the blow from them being apart.

Shane East and Andi Arndt's performance was flawless! I loved how they portrayed the characters, and their attitudes. The accents were perfect, and just enough to give the audio an authentic feel.

A great story, paired with two very talented narrators made this an awesome audio experience. I loved the story, well up until the time the characters spent apart, which is the reason for the overall four stars. Well worth the time and credit.

How to be a King

I loved the first book and I loved this one too. Henry has been handed the throne but he isn't ready and his impulsive, stupid decisions land him on a reality tv show to find the next queen.

Only he meets quiet and nervous Sarah and she isn't even on the show. After much angsty and emotional turmoil you get to find out... are Henry and Sarah meant to lead a country together?

Henry is a hoot and Sarah is too, only in a total different way. I laughed and fell in love with these 2 characters and Emma Chase gave me a lot to contemplate. What a great story!!

Lovely!

This second audiobook in the Royal series by Emma Chase was just as great as the first. I'm so glad that Prince Henry, the jaded and sad prince, finds his soulmate and happily ever after! The story of the kingdom of Wesco continues with great heat, romance and humor. The narration was exceptional and the story is memorable. Can't wait for the third book in this series!

Delightful

Funny, sexy and thoroughly delicious narration. Both narrators to be commended for their story telling. Henry is a brilliantly adorable, dirty mouthed, sexy boy. Sarah innocent but strong willed. Just a great book. Cheered me up and made me laugh. Great.

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
