Book Review: Royal Attraction
Royal Attraction - Tiffany Truitt

Damn book made me cry!


*ARC received from Entangled Publishing, LLC via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.*

Once again, I'm reminded that I'm an only child and I still long for an older brother.

SPOILER FREE REVIEW

"I'll pretend that seeing you here doesn't drive me wild. I'll ignore all the things my body wants to do to yours. I'll forget the fact that you leaving without a good-bye wrecked me." 

I swear I picked up this book because it has modern princes, and it's set in a palace, the palace.

The story was really fascinating. They're three British royal brothers and an American girl who grew up together. They even have their own hangout place outside the palace just to feel normal once in a while. But truly the story points back to Aly who doesn't believe in herself. She thinks all she does is break things, she never does the right things, and she wants to be perfect for the perfect image that the press wants from her. But its's not just Aly who has problems, all four of them do. They're forced to give up a part of their soul for the crown and pretend to be people who they're not. That's always the main problem when one has responsibilities on their shoulder and a role to play. There was a lot of conflict and issues all throughout but the resolution for this book was more than what I could have expected.

England, looking down at me, begging me to help mend his son's relationship when I was the one to shatter it. 

Each of the main characters are well created with certain personalities that make them different from each other yet they have some points in common. My favorite character is Oliver (Ollie) Dudley, and not just because he's smoking hot and utterly sexy but he does things for a purpose. He may seem reckless but they are actually well calculated actions. Compared to Aly who's almost like a little whimp and all she knows is how to run away. 

A lot of things have changed, but some never will. 

I love how this book is written in one person's point of view but it is divided between the past and the present. Also it is labeled at what age, month, and day it happened and there are also the early morning events where it's labeled are 'barely' it makes me laugh sometimes. Shifting from past to present are one of the types of writing style I adore because then it'd be very thrilling when they meet and tie in the end. The writing is also light and easy to read, though sometimes I look up a couple of words. It does uses a lot of British slang that I do not know the meaning off but that doesn't bother me at all.

"Life is incredibly, mercilessly short. There are so many things that come for us that we won't be able to fight. Save your fear for them. But all those pesky other things, the things that nearly destroy us but don't, we always manage to get back up. Always. Our fear is wasted on them." 

I would recommend this to those who enjoy reading about princes, or book set in a royal palace and if one is curious about what goes on behind closed doors. If you want your heart to be crumpled a bit, and perhaps a little sweet fun then this is for you. It does have a bit of sexual activities here and there but nothing major since this is a romance and not an erotica.

Be human. Be honest. Be you. 

Best advice ever.

Esperance (Heart Lines Series #3) by Heather Hildenbrand
Esperance: (New Adult Paranormal Romance... Esperance: (New Adult Paranormal Romance) (Heart Lines Series Book 3) - Heather Hildenbrand

Heather Hildenbrand’s ESPERANCE is a thrilling addition to the Heart Lines Series.  The story takes place following book two, INHERITANCE.  Alex Channing is healed but no longer has feelings.  He leaves Sam. Samantha Knight is trying to learn how to use her powers.  She is troubled by Alex’s change of behavior.  This contemporary urban fantasy takes place in Half Moon.

 

Heather Hildenbrand continues to do a great job with her character development.  I felt bad about what was happening to Alex.  He was always leery of the price you pay when using magic.  He does pay a price.  I like Sam.  She is becoming more and more like her old self prior to losing her memory.  She is determined to learn her magic and help the werewolves and Alex.  She is a strong and admiral heroine.

 

We find out some interesting about Breck Winters.  I like the introduction of Koby.  He teaches Sam some important things and helps support her.  Indra is a fascinating antagonist.  She is cunning and powerful. 

 

The plot was well executed.  A lot of thought-provoking events unfold in this story.  I enjoyed the ending and look forward to the next book in the series, IMBALANCE.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

Drury Jamison is not a bestselling author, yet. But he believes hard work will prevail. He has been writing since he could read and gave all his attention to the story at the expense of the rules.
Born an Army brat he finally settled and came to call the Missouri Ozarks home. While raising wonderful kids and failing at everything else he wrote screenplays, television scripts, advertising copy and filthy limericks. After many twists, and multiple once-in-a-lifetime life changing events, he returned to work on the short stories and novels he loved best.

Inheritance (Heart Lines #2) by Heather Hildenbrand
Inheritance: (A New Adult Paranormal Rom... Inheritance: (A New Adult Paranormal Romance) (Heart Lines Series Book 2) - Heather Hildenbrand

Heather Hildenbrand’s INHERITANCE is an exciting addition to the Heart Lines series.  INHERITANCE takes place after book one, REMEMBRANCE, left off.  Samantha Knight regained her memory.  She and RJ are visiting Sam’s Aunt Kiwi in Guam to help her learn her magic.  Alex Channing took off to Alaska, knowing that it would cost Sam to heal him.  Eventually, they wind up back in Half Moon.  This paranormal romance is suitable for new adults and adults.

 

I like Sam. Her character transforms a lot now that she has her memory back.  She is becoming more like the person she was prior to losing her memory.  She is more outgoing and not as scared.  She is having difficulties learning how to use her healing powers.   She discovers the history behind the werewolves and how she is connected to them.    

 

Alex is a noble hero.  We learn more about his past and why he doesn’t want Sam to heal him.  He realizes he doesn’t have anything other than CHAS.  The werewolf venom takes its toll on him.  I respect his character and feel bad for his situation.

 

I like Sam and Alex together.  I keep feeling like there is more to their relationship that we have yet to discover.  I’m looking forward to seeing where their story goes. 

 

The plot was interesting with multiple twists.  Heather Hildenbrand did an excellent job constructing the history behind the werewolves and hunters. The story had another cliff hanger ending that left me eager for the next book, ESPERANCE, expected to be published on April 27, 2017.  I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.
