Review: Suddenly #2, Recklessly Royal by Nicole Williams

18172470Blurb from Goodreads

Catherine has spent her life being the perfect princess. She’s kept her hands clean, her head down, and most importantly—men at arm’s length. After all, most men are after only one thing, and for Cathy there’s a lot more at stake than her bed; she has to worry about the fate of an entire nation. But at the rate she’s going, Cathy is afraid she’ll give the Virgin Queen a run for her money. She is tired of waiting for someone good enough to come along. She has a plan, and it all hinges on seducing the one man who seems utterly unimpressed by all things royal. The one man she is tempted by more than any other . . .

When David arrives at the royal wedding of his friend, the newly ordained Duchess Samantha Rousseau, he expected to feel uncomfortable and out of his element, but he wasn’t prepared to be targeted by Prince Alex’s gorgeous younger sister. With Cathy’s giant blue eyes, killer figure, and sense of humor, it won’t take long before he gives in. But when he finds out just how innocent the crown princess really is, will he play the part of knight in shining armor or the dashing rogue?

My Thoughts
I think this is a sweet enjoyable reading. I liked it enough to give it 3 stars but not enough if I compare it to Suddenly Royal.
Unlike Alex & Sam relationship, Cathy & David relationship feels like an insta-love/lust. They surely are attracted from the first time they see each other and within a week they are already fall in love, though they don’t realize it. On the other hand, it doesn’t feel like in a rush. There is process in their relationship. There are encounters and communication between them. So is it an insta-love or not? You decide.

As an MC, I liked Cathy. She’s fun and witty when she’s just ordinary Cathy and she’s capable and responsible as Princess Catherine and just like David I liked her multiple personalities. But I can’t say the same thing to David, well…I liked him but he’s quite different from David Rhodes I imagine in Suddenly Royal. I was kinda pictured him a nerd guy while here he’s like most of NA male characters I read, a gorgeous-perfect guy. He isn’t Samantha’s friend I knew before. If I have to choose I prefer David Rhodes from Suddenly Royal.

So, this book isn’t the best from Nicole Williams but it’s still a fun reading. I’m looking forward to Max’s story now.

Result: 3 out of 5 stars
