Meeting Dylan Hale has turned my life upside down. I’m dating an actual duke who’s devastatingly handsome and deliciously naughty. On the surface, I’m living the high life. But this surreal world of royalty and paparazzi is getting out of control.
Someone knows way too much about Dylan and me-about the moments when we’re alone, about how his hands leave a trail of fire over my skin . . . about the complete control he has over me between the sheets. And worse, it’s starting to become clear that Dylan’s keeping secrets from me, too . . .
Book 2– Royal Disaster
Stand-alone: Mostly – Picks up where Royal Affair (book 1) leaves off but offers enough back story not be lost but definitely better if you read book 1 first. Also, once again a complete story that leaves you wanting the next one.
Part of a Series: Yes Book 2 of the Royal Scandal series
POV: Mostly Lydia and some Dylan (I want more Dylan in book 3!)
Steam Level: Quite warm but not as hot as hot as book 1
5/5Royal Disaster starts off a few weeks after Royal Affair ends. In it we see Lydia and Dylan (or DyLy as the paparazzi call them) learning become a couple in the public eye. We see them navigating work, family and social life together. I love that Royal Disaster does not depict this as easy but shows the ups and downs of a normal relationship with added stressors of Dylan’s family and the press spinning stories. It was sweet and funny and emotional. At one point I felt like my heart was being ripped out and was literally crying. This book is an emotional rollercoaster that grabs hold and doesn’t let go until you’re thoroughly spun out. It was amazing! I also like that, although not the end of their journey, Royal Disaster is a complete story about this part of their lives. It leaves you wanting more and wondering what will happen but it finishes the storyline for this book (I’m okay with this type of cliff-hanger). I absolutely cannot wait to read book 3. Great job Parker Swift!
