Royally Screwed by Sienna Blake ~ Sarah A’s Review

Prince Grayson.
Heir to the British throne.
Sexiest man I’ve ever laid eyes on.
For some strange reason, he wants me.

I can see the red-hot lust flaring in his eyes when I near. Can feel the thick, long evidence of it when he presses up against me.

And I want him. I want him so bad it hurts.

One week.
No strings.
Just unbridled, wild passion with a future king.

Except he has one condition.

One that has me thinking I might be in over my head…

He won’t give me what I want unless his two bodyguards join in.

Warning: This is a sexy-as-sin, reverse harem romance. Can you handle three huge alpha men focused on her pleasure and taking it all the way?

Now with Bonus Novella: Royally X’mased

It’s Grayson and my first Christmas together alone on our own private island. Or so I think…

When I return from the beach, I find the front door ajar. Waiting for me are three masked men with a dangerous and sexy surprise so fucking hot it’ll melt my bikini right off.

I’m finding myself quite obsessed with these Quick and Dirty novellas from Sienna Blake. This novella wasn’t quite as emotionally riveting as the previous two, but it packed a lot of punch in other ways. I love a good forbidden romance, and the relationship between Sophia and Grayson (and Chase and Nicolai) in Royally Screwed was forbidden to the max.

I have a strange relationship with insta-love, sometimes it works for me, and sometimes it doesn’t. The connection between Sophia and Grayson hovered just on the dividing line for me. There were moments I felt their chemistry intensely and other moments where it felt forced. In those scenes where I could feel it, their connection was all consuming. And most of those moments were when they were alone together. I could understand why Grayson had carried out all previous liaisons with Chase and Nicolai because they felt impersonal to me.

As a forbidden romance, Royally Screwed really worked for me. I loved that Sophia challenged him and he was able to see what his life looked like from a different perspective through her. They had a fascinating back and forth when they were together, and I could feel the genuine care and affection they had. I could have spent a lot longer exploring their love story and them finding their own way through a lifestyle that isn’t always receptive to outsiders and commoners.

As a reverse harem novel – of which I have limited experience – Royally Screwed didn’t work for me. I can appreciate the relationship between one woman and multiple men if there is a deep and abiding love between all of the parties, but there wasn’t that connection in this book, so it fell a little flat for me.

My wishes for this book would mostly be in the ties to the Chase and Nicolai. I never felt the draw there between them and Sophia, so a lot of the scenes involving them felt more gratuitous than anything. Based on the original publication of this in the Royal and Reckless anthology, I wonder if this wasn’t the first of these reverse harem books Ms. Blake wrote, because the other two far outshined this one regarding the connections between all the characters. There were also a handful of editorial issues, typos mostly, that need to be cleaned up. I also would have loved to had seen more of Nicolai’s backstory and hope to find out his mysteries sometime in the future.

Royally Screwed is the third book in Sienna Blake’s Quick and Dirty series. These novellas are all complete standalones, with no character or content crossover. Royally Screwed was previously published as part of the Royal and Reckless anthology and has been re-released with a bonus novelette. Royally Screwed is written in triple first-person perspective, narrated by Sophia, Grayson, and Nicolai.

I used to think I was one of the lucky ones.

But at twenty-six, I’ve left my life in New York behind—my perfect fiancé, my stylish friends, my high-flying marketing career—and moved to Ireland.

Truthfully, my perfect fiancé is now my ex after I walked in on him face-deep in my best friend’s p***y.

And my career? It’s over. Because that cheating ex-fiancé of mine… he owns the company I worked for.

I know. I know. Don’t screw your boss. Trust me, I’m never making that mistake again.

On my way to the remote Irish farm I’m now working on, my car hits a ditch. I’m rescued by the three sexiest men I’ve everseen.

The three Irish O’Callaghan brothers.

Broad shoulders, strong arms, accents that make me wet just to hear them.

I want them. All of them.

I know they all want me.

Plot twist…

Turns out they’re my new bosses.

Five years I’ve been kept under the control of Ireland’s most vicious gang leader. Now that I’m eighteen, he’s forcing me to marry him. I’d rather die a thousand deaths.

I escape to the only place I can be safe–home of my captor’s biggest rival, the Irish Kings.

There’s X, the living weapon with a haunted past. His vicious touch helps release all this anger in me.

Jace, the teddy bear with a warrior’s heart. His melodic Irish brogue is a balm to my soul.

And Magnar King, their intimidating leader. Whose eyes flare with hunger when I’m near, yet backs away like I’ve burned him when we touch. He doesn’t remember me. But I remember him.

They’re all so different. But they all make me feel safe. They awaken needs in me—strange needs.

want all of them.

But I just might need all of them to heal.
