Title: Royal Pain
Being rich opens a lot of doors. When you’re rich and royal, those doors lead to a new bedroom every night. I should know. The tabloids call me His Royal Hotness, Prince Kian of Wildemar. Women across the world see me as a naughty fairy tale, an image I’m happy to indulge. As the spare to the heir, I’m the prince with none of the power . . . and all of the perks.
Then my twin brother is kidnapped, and suddenly I’m the one who could be king. The crown chasers start circling—and yet it’s a luscious waitress who catches my eye. With a smart mouth and the curves to back it up, Savannah Breslin is as brazen as I’d expect an American commoner to be.
But Savvy’s not interested in playing Cinderella. As sexy as she is, she’s no stranger to heartbreak. Besides, a nice guy wouldn’t drag her into all the drama that comes along with royalty. Lucky I’m not a nice guy. And, as it turns out, I might not even be her first prince. . . .

This was a cute. It did it’s job which was to entertain me, keep in engaged in the story and pull me in enough to want to pick up the next one. So in that regard, it was pretty successful. But there was something about it that kept me from truly “loving” it. Please don’t ask me what that something is, because I’m still trying to figure it out. I’m sure that by the time I’m done writing this review I’ll know.
Kian is the “spare” prince. He’s the twin to the crown prince and hasn’t had to act like true royalty pretty much his whole life. Even though he’s in the royal guard, he parties hard and doesn’t care who is around to witness his playboy ways. But when his brother is kidnapped, he’s thrust in to the royal life he’s never wanted. Add in the fact that he’s beside himself, worried about his missing brother and it’s enough to make anyone a little on edge. That is until he’s attacked (I mean saved) by a beautiful waitress at a gala. He’s immediately captivated and isn’t shy about how determined he is to get to know her.
Savannah (Savvy) is the waitress who’s saved Kian from a heard of horny aristocratic females who are trying to dig their nails in to Kian. What she wasn’t prepared for was the way he’d look at her. The way he’d make her feel. Nor all of the complications that come with those feelings. Why complicated? Because he’s the prince, soon to be king if his brother isn’t found alive. Because she’s a commoner and let’s face it, fairy tales don’t really come true in real life, right? And more importantly, because she’s been down this road before. And Kian isn’t going to like what she’s got to say.
Since the “truth” comes out relatively early in the story, I don’t feel like I’m spoiling anything by saying this. But just in case you want to go in blind, you have about two seconds to stop reading this review….
Surprise, surprise. Savvy once dated Kian’s brother in college. It’s not like it was a year ago, it’s been five years, but obviously feelings are still floating in the air. Both for Savvy and his brother. THIS. This right here is probably why me “loving” this didn’t quite happen. Don’t get me wrong. The author does a good job of explaining the situation from Savvy’s POV. And considering the fact that the chemistry was so crazy between the two, I get how their relationship would continue to bloom. But man. The brother is still missing and although everyone is still looking for him, we still haven’t really heard how he feels about Savvy and Kian finding romance. Especially considering how Kian finds out about Savvy’s past relationship. Anyway, I’m digressing. The point is, it made it a little hard for me to truly appreciate this read. But I have a funny feeling that we haven’t heard the last of brother Garrett…just sayin’.
