Royal Date by Sariah Wilson [Review]

This Cinderella didn’t plan on a prince . . .

Kat MacTaggart is a girl who has a plan for everything—including her holiday ski trip to Monterra with her best friend. Everything is going according to plan until she finds herself careening out of control down a mountainside and being rescued by a guy who looks like Superman’s hotter Italian cousin.
HRH Prince Nico is intrigued by the woman he saved on the slopes and her refusal to date him. He offers Kat a deal—let him show her his country and he’ll pay her to write articles that will help Monterra’s tourism industry. Kat agrees, but given her past and lingering distrust of men, she has one condition—absolutely no kissing.
Thanks to the claims of a jealous British noblewoman and the schemes of a meddling paparazzo, Kat’s rule doesn’t seem to be a problem at first. But the more Kat gets to know Nico and the people around him, the harder it is to remember her keep-your-distance plan. Should she stick to it or risk everything for a chance at happily ever after?
4 His Royal Stars

Royal Date is a standalone and isn’t part of a series, yet, but the next book will be about the brother’s Hero.  This is a Young Adult book.

This was a RANDOM read. I picked it up because of the cute storyline and the cute cover. I was really surprised on how much I enjoyed it. If you are in the mood for something fairytale, adorable and easy, then this is for you.

Kat is your typical college student. She’s on vacation with her best friend and she *gasp* gets into a skiing accident. Well, her savior is PRINCE Nico. Yeah, I completely love this storyline. I love a Royal Hero, don’t you? Nico is everything you want in a fairytale read. He’s dominating, straight-forward and completely sweet!

Nico is taken with Kat and he can’t help himself, but bring her back to the palace while she recovers from her injuries. He learns she is a writer and offers her a job. Nico will be part of a dating show, I know, another cute plot twist and he wants some positive publicity for his country to get more tourist, so he asks Kat to write positive articles for him.  She has to “date” him to get the insights of his royal highness.

Oh this book is filled with cuteness!

Kat needs the money and accepts the job. In the process she doesn’t realize how much she learns and how much she likes Nico. I completely fell in love with the Kat and Nico dynamic. It couldn’t be more cute. I know I say it a lot, but it’s a really light innocent read.  So Nico and Kat grow closer together, but not everyone likes Nico getting closer to Kat. Kat has to deal with press, jealous girls and Nico’s crazy family.

I loved Nico’s family. It added nice tension and something extra to the storyline. This book does have some mild angst when Kat faces some troubles towards the middle part, it did frustrate me a bit, BUT it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be and I powered through it.

I’m so bum the next book isn’t out yet. Yes, I am that greedy. I can’t wait for Dante and Lemon’s story, which will be publishing January 2016! If you want something light, fresh and with a royal twist, try this one!

Sariah Wilson has never jumped out of an airplane, never climbed Mt. Everest, and is not a former CIA operative. She has, however, been madly, passionately in love with her soulmate and is a fervent believer in happily ever afters—which is why she writes romance. She grew up in southern California, graduated from Brigham Young University (go Cougars!) with a semi-useless degree in history, and is the oldest of nine (yes, nine) children. She currently lives with the aforementioned soulmate and their four children in Utah, along with three tiger barb fish, a cat named Tiger, and a recently departed hamster that is buried in the backyard (and has nothing at all to do with tigers).
