Review 'The Irredeemable Prince' by Alyssa J. Montgomery
The ultimate royal bad boy is about to meet his match...

If one ever needs to find Prince Devereaux of Santaliana, one needs only look for the nearest newspaper: His Royal Highness is sure to be splashed across the scandal pages…

But enough is enough, and Prince Devereaux’s formidable brother King Gabriel is stepping in. No more night clubs, no more drinking, absolutely no more one-night-stands with up-and-coming models. Devereaux will step into his responsibilities, or he will be cut off.

For his own reasons, Devereaux submits to the stipulations that his brother sets out, even as he chafes at the restrictions. But the recalcitrant prince is about to find out that self-improvement can be surprisingly seductive..

My Review:

Sometimes I just need to read an easy romance. Especially when life gets really busy and crazy. So it seemed the perfect time for me to read ‘The Irredeemable Prince’. And who doesn’t love a romance story involving a prince? Although this is the second book in the Royal Affairs series, it can be read as a standalone.

In ‘The Irredeemable Prince’ we meet Mackenzie, a young woman who is really good in creating the perfect image for people. And a new image is definitely what Prince Devereaux of Santaliana needs. At the moment he has the image of a night-club fanatic and a player who has a new girl every night. And his brother, King Gabriel has had enough. Mackenzie is one of the best in her work, but there is definitely more to Prince Dev than meets the eye. And the attraction between the two of them is definitely coming of the pages.

‘The Irredeemable Prince’ was definitely a very nice romance. It was easy to read, but this book also has lots of twists and turns that I didn’t expect at all. Especially in the beginning of this book I loved the chemistry between Mackenzie and Dev. I really couldn’t stop reading, and I just wanted to know more about these characters.

Although the twists and turns kept going throughout the book, I did found the last part of the book going way to fast. It felt like things were a little rushed and I really wished the last part was a little slower and more detailed. The chemistry in the beginning in the book was great, but I missed that in the ending of the story.

Overall, ‘The Irredeemable Prince’ is a fun read. And it definitely sparked my interest for reading the rest of this series.
