❤❤ ROYAL AFFAIR by Marquita Valentine 4 star review ❤❤

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A sheltered princess goes wild—and makes the best mistake of her life—when she falls for a roguish reporter in this fun, sexy romance from the bestselling author of Royal Scandal.

Online muckraker Brooks Walker has a reputation for exposing the political elite. Now he’s set his sights on the Sinclair siblings, who’ve been embroiled in their fair share of drama ever since their exile to North Carolina. But Brooks has never been afraid to get his hands dirty—until he meets a royal wallflower at a charity ball who makes him reconsider everything. Is Brooks feeling guilty because he knows all the sordid details of her family’s history? Or because he’s putting their relationship first, before his journalistic integrity?

As the “spare” twin, Princess Charlotte has always been the responsible one. So when her sister finally agrees to fulfill her duty as queen, Charlotte gives herself permission to break a few rules by flirting with the very off-limits CEO of Walker Media. Brooks is the worst sort of man to start an affair with, but Charlotte just can’t help it. The trouble is, since she’s no good at playing games, soon she’s tiara over heels in love. And when Brooks comes clean, Charlotte must decide whether his confession is worth a royal pardon.

I've never read this author before, so when presented with the chance to read someone new, I take it as often as I can. while I did like the story, and liked the writing as well, there were some hit and miss parts for me. but, I think this is because I didn't read book one. had I read the first book in the series, I think this one would've made a lot more sense.

so, learn from me... READ BOOK ONE FIRST

Moving on, there were times I didn't understand Imogen. Is she pissed she's going to be queen, or no? Is she jealous of her sister or no? Her emotional or mental state at times came off as confusing, and I'm still not sure I understand what happened in that room when all the Sinclair's kicked Charlotte out of the room. I'm also still kind of confused as to why he lost his company - he published what article again? That's the hit or miss part. But I think that may be more on me, than the author.

I did like Charlotte and Brooks together. They heat up the sheets so very well, but their characters just flow so well together. If you add in Briggs, we get quite the chuckle about their relationship.

All in all I'm quite glad for the offer to read this book. When looking for a contemporary HEA this is definitely an author I'd read again.
