A simple notification turns my world upside down…

The tabloids are reporting,
I’ve taken the crown and run.
Not entirely true.

As you might have guessed,
I’m not an ordinary girl and I don’t lead an ordinary life,
But that doesn’t mean I always follow the rules.

This time, though,
I feel compelled to obey.

Which means I have to find a king,
To sit alongside my throne,
Or lose it all.

With only the clothes on my back,
I head to the land of majestic playboys,
Where a royal rebel strides right into my life.
With his sultry eyes and sinful lips,
He turns my world right-side up.

The press is calling him washed up.
I think he’s anything but.

Gorgeous, sexy, irresistible,
And utterly charming,
He’s exactly what I’m looking for.

Everything is almost too perfect,
Too easy.

Until I discover,
This hot-blooded royal has a reason for being here.
And it’s more than just me.

That thing I said about easy,
Turns out…

Nothing ever is.

My royal rebel has a name,
It’s Prince Adrien Laurent.
This is our story.

My Review

In Kim Karr’s latest release, the main characters, Tori and Adrien, aren’t ordinary people, and no matter how much they don’t want to be, because of their royal positions, they’re continually fodder for the paparazzi, and in contemporary society, public opinion seems to mean everything, which is why Tori and Adrien’s first encounter, during a time in which they’re both a bit lost, is both unexpected and exhilarating, but it also is supposed to be a one time deal – a way to relieve some of the tension that surrounds them given the fallout of their actions and decisions.

Princess Victoria Blanchette’s life has never been her own; since the day she was born, she was meant to carry a prestigious royal title – one that defines every aspect of her life, putting her duty to her people and her royal responsibilities above her own wants and needs. But because of her position, a ‘suitable’ husband is something that Tori needs; in fact, if she doesn’t have one, she will never wear the crown as Queen, but that’s only because of a royal decree that leaves her hands tied. 

Prince Adrien Pierre Laurent may be ‘washed up’ in some people’s eyes, but he seems to be Tori’s perfect match, even when she thinks he’s just a soccer player. He’s intelligent, well-spoken, handsome and beyond sexy; plus, his sweet side is more than swoonworthy, and despite his Royal Rebel moniker, his feelings for Tori make him want to be the royal he’s expected to be despite his less than stellar past.

I love the fact that both Tori & Adrien’s perspectives are provided; this is probably my favorite way a romance story is told. What’s also insightful are the chapters where and Kim Karr also gives insights through the media’s outlook, shedding light on what’s happening in the world of the royals. With these varying views, readers are able to see the whole picture and understand all that’s at stake for not only Tori and Adrien but also the citizens of the five Vespa Isles.

There’s a lot going on in Washed Out Royal, and because the story is fast-paced, I feel like some parts of the story line weren’t fleshed out enough, especially when it comes to Tori and Adrien’s relationship and how their feelings grow for each other despite everything happening around them. But despite my need for a bit more insight, I enjoyed this royal romance, and I’m eager for the other princes to have their stories told.
