A modern princess. A charming commoner. Can they hurdle tradition to find true love?

Princess Elizabeth "Liz" of York isn't interested in a fairy tale life. Determined to use her elite platform to champion children's causes, she'd much rather raise awareness than find her prince. If only she could stop picturing one certain gardener with vivid hazel eyes....

When the relentless paparazzi invade her space, Liz's crush comes to her rescue and steals her heart. Tossing aside centuries of tradition for something real, she takes Roman's calloused hand and braces for the backlash. But after her progressive approach ruffles more than a few feathers, one member of the monarchy vows to keep the princess locked in her stylish but decidedly ivory tower.

Can Liz break through her birthright to find a powerful kind of love?

My Review:

4 Out Of 5 Stars

Princess Liz has spent months thinking about Roman, the man she met months ago but who left a lasting impression. Deciding to chance a meeting, she runs into Roman at his work and he ends up rescuing her from the paparazzi. When they both confess to thinking of the other, they decide to see if they can have a relationship. But can they really find and keep love when they come from such different world?

I met both Liz and Roman in the first book in the series and saw that instant spark of attraction so I was so excited to see that they were the main characters for the second book in this royalty romance series. It was also really great to see that both characters went into the relationship with eyes wide open, knowing that their relationship was not going to be easy but willing to give it a shot anyway. Roman was the strong silent type with a heart of gold and a core of sensitivity and Liz was spunky and compassionate, yet had a tendency to overthink everything. Not to give too much away, but the book was full or romance, love, and tons of drama and the best HEA that I could have wanted.

Zander was one of my favorite characters from the first book and reinforced my feelings in this story as well. I really, really need the next book to be Zander finding love. I enjoyed that we get to see Clementine and Christian get closer to their happily ever after in the background of Roman and Liz finding love. Each book is a standalone romance, but it is nice to read the series in order so that we get to meet all the characters since they do tie together. As a side note, there are so many great side characters that I hope I get to see more of later, and yes Darcy is right up at the top.

The narrator is the same as from the fist book and did a great job of giving these two characters brand new voices all their own. I would easily listen to her narrate more romance books in the future because she really brought the drama and feels to the surface.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The tour is being sponsored by Aven Ellis. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Aven began her publishing career in 2013 with her debut release, Connectivity. She currently writes hockey and baseball romances as well as a modern royal romance series.

Her books are designed to make readers laugh out loud and fall in love. Happily-ever-after endings and good-boy heroes are guaranteed.

Aven lives in the Dallas area with her family. She is a huge fan of both the Dallas Stars and Texas Rangers. Aven loves shopping and fashion and can spend hours playing with fragrances in any department store. She can be found chatting it up on social media, eating specialty M&Ms, and crushing on the latest outfit the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing.
