Review 'The Royal Treatment' by Melanie Summers


https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/36102255-the-royal-treatment
Ultra-private, ridiculously handsome Crown Prince Arthur has always gotten by on his charm. But that won’t be enough now that the Royal Family is about to be ousted from power once and for all. When Prince Arthur has to rely on the one woman in the kingdom who hates him most, he must learn that earning the love of a nation means first risking his heart.

Twenty-eight-year-old Tessa Sharpe, a.k.a. The Royal Watchdog, hates everything about Prince Arthur. As far as she’s concerned, he’s an arrogant, lazy leech on the kingdom of Avonia. When he shocks the nation by giving her the keys to the castle, Tessa has no choice but to accept and move in for two months. It’s lust at first sight, but there’s no way she can give in to her feelings—not if she wants to have a career or a shred of pride left when her time at the palace ends…

Can two natural enemies find their forever in each other’s arms, or will they ruin each other to save themselves?

My Review:


I am one of those people who really love royals. Here in the Netherlands we have a royal family too and I just love them. And obviously I love the British royals too. So it was around the time when Prince Harry and Megan Markle got engaged when I saw the cover of this book and just knew I had to read it. So I bought it and was super excited to start reading.

In ‘The Royal Treatment’ we meet Crown Prince Arthur. Arthur is arrogant, and has always gotten by on using his charms and looks. But when the Royal Family is about to lose there hold on the throne. Arthur knows, he must do something drastic to win back the hearts of his nation.
Meanwhile Tessa Sharpe, a.k.a. The Royal Watchdog is doing her best to let everyone know how much she thinks the royals are money digging people who don’t care about their nation at all. As a blogger Tessa is gaining more and more followers. So when Tessa receives an invitation by Prince Arthur himself to stay at the palace for two months to let her see what it is they do all day, she is very surprised but obviously can’t say no.

Everything I expected ‘The Royal Treatment’ to be, definitely came true. This book was filled with humor, romance and definitely some teary eyed moments too. ‘The Royal Treatment’ was the perfect relaxing fun read before bed and I easily got lost in Melanie Summers writing.

Although Prince Arthur was definitely an arrogant ass of a man, especially in the beginning, you could see there was more to him than we got to see at first. And I loved his character and getting to know him more. I especially loved the way he was with Tessa.
Tessa was a character I definitely loved. Her character is easy to relate too. She is still searching for her dream job, is really clumsy but still doesn’t let that stop her for doing what she wants. I just loved her. Her family was rather horrible if you ask me though.

The romance between Arthur and Tessa definitely made you swoon. And I loved the way we got to read this story to both there point of views. This definitely made this book even more enjoyable.

Yes, ‘The Royal Treatment’ was a great read I really enjoyed. I definitely need to get my hands on the second book in this series.

About the Author:


Melanie Summers made a name for herself with her debut novel, Break in Two, a contemporary romance that cracked the Top 10 Paid on Amazon in both the UK and Canada, and the top 50 Paid in the USA. Her highly acclaimed Full Hearts Series was picked up by both Piatkus Entice (a division of Hachette UK) and HarperCollins Canada. Her first three books have been translated into Czech and Slovak by EuroMedia. Since 2013, she has written and published eight novels and three novellas. She has sold over a quarter of a million books around the globe.

Melanie Summers currently resides in Edmonton, Canada, with her husband, three young children, and the cutest one-eyed dog ever. When she’s not writing romance novels, she loves reading (obviously), snuggling up on the couch with her family for movie night (which would not be complete without lots of popcorn and milkshakes), and long walks in the woods near her house.

Melanie also spends a lot more time thinking about doing yoga than actually doing yoga, which is why most of her photos are taken ‘from above’. She also loves shutting down restaurants with her girlfriends. Well, not literally shutting them down, like calling the health inspector or something. More like just staying until they turn the lights off.

Melanie is a member of the Romance Writers of America, as well as the International Women’s Writing Guild.
