One seriously sexy son-of-a-duke . . .
Behind the posh British accent, Dylan Hale possesses a down-and-dirty sexiness. Off-the-charts gorgeous, a ruthless architect . . . and did I mention he's a future duke? Every time we touch, it's wildfire. All need and lust and heat. But Dylan has rules: just sex, no one can know, and in the bedroom he gets complete control. All I have to do is follow the rules, because falling in love with Dylan Hale is all it would take to screw everything up . . . royally.
I am so excited to share my thoughts on Royal Affair by Parker Swift. I had the privilege of reading an E-arc and I LOVED it. My poor sister's head after I had read it. I kept gushing about it and saying you need to read this ASAP and I am so excited you can all read it now! I admit I was a tad over excited when I finished it as straight away I sent this email to the publicist:
"I just finished Royal Affair and I frickin loved it!! I need the next book, the ending left me needing more. I got Fifty Shade vibes, love it. I just need to share how much I loved this book. Can't wait to share my review on release day!!"
Royal Affair is a sexy romance that I gave 4.5 stars to. Now to get my little negative out of the way of why it didn't get 5 stars that is because it did take me a few chapters to get into but apart from that it was a masterpiece of the best quality. I have to start of with the writing. I really liked Parker's writing. I felt that I was Lydia I was with her on her journey and it was a roller coaster journey. I was watching this play out in my head like a movie.
The romance was my favorite part it was swoon worthy, it was intense and sweet and I think Parker Swift had the balance right. It had little hints of BSDM but more in the whole dominant man thing and not the red room type and it was also super sweet as well. The romance is up there with some of my fave couples, Ana and Christian, Gideon and Eva and Jesse and Ava.
I enjoyed getting to know the characters, Lydia works for a fashion designer, shes just moved to London, she's meeting new people shes trying to embrace herself in London life and Dylan is an architect who is also royalty who has obligations and some history. Royal Affair also looks into the world of the paparazzi which I find really intriguing. I loved all the back an forth and the little plot bits coming together and just coming together in this beautiful package of a book.
Overall this is a great romance, that has depth it's not all about the sex, it's about love and discovering each other and it has a nice plot underneath. The ending left me needing the next book, like come on you can't leave me on that cliffhanger. Get your copy today!
