Recklessly Royal by Nichole Chase Review & Giveaway




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?

I can not remember the last time that I read a book and it just made me feel good! Recklessly Royal by Nichole Chase is the sequel to the highly popular, Suddenly Royal. This book is all about Cathy and in my opinion, she is one of the most endearing and lovable female leads of recent in this genre.

“I hoped I looked sexy and inviting, but I probably looked excited and nervous.”

What woman hasn’t felt that way? Whether royals or not, Nichole Chase has done an excellent job of making all of the characters in this book similar to us all. At the end of the day, Cathy wants love and someone to spend her life with and enter David! Once again, another excellent character written by Nichole! Cathy and David’s road to relationship was such a breath of fresh air. It was quirky, entertaining, and full of sizzle!!

If you are looking for a book that will truly put a smile on your face, then Recklessly Royal is the book for you!!!

keep me still


Layla Flaherty had the perfect life, or close to it. Until a stranger gunned her parents down right in front of her, leaving her with seizure inducing PTSD. After years of trying to pass as normal and failing miserably, she resigns herself to being invisible. But new to town Landen O’Brien sees her, and he likes what he sees. Much to Layla’s surprise, he doesn’t freak out when she has a seizure in front of him. He does the exact opposite, calming her until the tremors subside. But Landen has secrets of his own. Secrets that both bind them together and tear them apart.
Scarred by loss, Layla leaves her hometown of Hope Springs, Georgia, hoping to put her painful past behind her and start over in college in California. When she runs into Landen at freshmen orientation, she has a choice to make. Reinforce those steel walls she’s built up around herself or give the only boy who can keep her still a second chance.
Landen’s more than ready to tear down those walls but this time when they come crashing down, they might bury her.


I move the pillow and look at him, overheating instantly at the sight of his mouth and the memory of what he just did with it. I can’t help but wonder how people do these intimate things to each other and then go on with life business as usual. Pass the salt and all that.

“You are the most dangerous kind of beautiful,” he says, brushing my messy hair away from my face.

I can only imagine what a wreck I look like after that, but with the way he smiles at me, he must actually think I am beautiful right now. I lean in and kiss his mouth. I can taste myself on his lips. It’s kind of strange and kind of a turn on. I pull at his lower lip with my teeth and he groans.

His voice is raspy against my mouth. “You even taste like peaches, sweet like I knew you would be.”

“What do you taste like, Landen?” I ask, as my sex voice woman comes back to me. “And more importantly, what’s with all the clothes?”

Just when Velaney thinks she is safe again…her worst nightmare comes back to haunt her.

Eric is dealing with his own insecurities as he tries to accept Velaney’s decision to help the enemy…can he get past it? Will they be there for each other in the end?

He struggles to step aside and trust Velaney…but will his past keep him from doing so? Can he let go in order to move forward?

Velaney and Eric had their fair share of ups and downs in SPARK…they love was undeniable and intense. Just when you think they could get their happily ever after…pasts collide and merge together…will they fight for what they want?

Or will their love crash and burn?




Let me start this review by stating if you haven’t read Spark (the first book in the series), then you need to. Burn picks up right where that story ends as we go on another ride with Velaney and Eric. And, just as the title suggests, this book is HOT!!!

We get to know Eric much better and ohhhhh boy!!! There are so twists, turns,and surprises that I lost a night of sleep reading this book. Brooke does an amazing job because she makes us realize that through fictional characters that us real people must be willing to let go of the pain and press forward. Bravo!!!
