    Polly gets her turn!

    I have really been enjoying this series, but I wanted to know what happened to Polly. She was instrumental to the plot of the first book, but she didn't have her own story yet. Polly has a big personality and can be impulsive, and this has caused her some trouble in the past. She doesn't fit into the role her country has set for royal women. She has matured in the past year, and she is ready to demonstrate that. She sums up the book's conflict at the end of chapter one: "I'm still going to attempt the impossible -- gaining the throne on my own terms while keeping my family and my kingdom safe. Who better to tackle the impossible than the person who's been labeled impossible?" Watching her do that was awesome. Oscar has the opposite problem. He has nothing to do since an injury forced him out of professional soccer. His siblings are finding their roles in life, and he is at loose ends. Polly shows up and bowls him over, and then a new idea comes about that could give Oscar the purpose he is looking for. The problem is that he seems to be in love with the one woman he can't have. She confides her problems to him, and he is compelled to be her hero. He is very sweet about it, and I loved the way he respected Polly's wishes for her future. I thought Polly and Oscar had great chemistry and complemented each other very well. I thought I knew where the plot was going, and that would have been nice but not great. Then stuff got serious, and Polly and Oscar got to show their true colors. The last half of the book was terrific. I enjoyed seeing the previous characters again, especially Alice because I love her. And we get to meet Anna and Gabriel's baby in this one, too! On to Adrian!

    Oscar and Polly

    I adore the Rourke series by Kylie Gilmore! Royal Player is the story of Oscar Rourke, the 4th in line to the throne of Villroy is looking to be involved in the family spa business and is a player. Princess Polly a distance cousin to Queen Anna comes to Villroy to be with Anna during the delivery of her baby. Polly comes to Villroy from a strict island with old rule for women and cannot be Queen unless she marries and doesn’t want to marry the man her parents have picked out. They are attracted to each other but Oscar knows about her upbringing and is trying to be respectful of Polly. Oscar and Polly’s story is exciting, entertaining and romantic. A throughly enjoyable read that you will have a difficult time putting down. I received this book as an arc for an honest review of it.

    Fantastic Book

    Royal Player was another fantastic story by the talented Kylie Gilmore, this was a fun and exciting story. This is a story of family, a bit of blackmail and definitely some love. The characters are just lovable. Polly “Princess Mary Louise Lyon.” Is such a delightful character I absolutely adored her, Prince Oscar is just a great character and I couldn’t help but really love him. When these two first meet you can just feel the chemistry and that is just the start of one enjoyable story. This is book 5 in The Rourkes series and was definitely as exciting and entertaining as the first in this series, but For me Polly and Oscar were probably my favorites. The storyline was really well developed and I was unable to put down. If you love royalty this is the book for you. I absolutely loved this book and highly recommend it. A must read in my opinion. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader copy of this book.

    Royal Love

    Polly and Oscar’s royal story was a fun and wonderful adventure in Royal Player by Kylie Gilmore, book five in The Rourkes series. Imagine you have been groomed your entire life to be the queen except you must marry a man who would be useful to the kingdom in order for that to happen. That’s the life Polly is bound by. Not only that, but the man her parents chose is twenty years older, cares only about making money for himself and not as loyal as he professes. Given a reprieve to attend the birth of the Villroy royal baby, Polly has a chance to figure out what to do about her future. Then she meets the one man possibly worth walking away and losing her family, her birthright, her island home. Oscar is the fourth-born son and other than being the good looking one has little to offer or expected of him. Then he meets her. Lightning strikes, electricity sizzles, and their magnetic attraction brings them together and they fall in love at first sight or is it first touch; despite being the wrong time and wrong place. Oscar works hard to find a way to usurp the man Polly is supposed to marry and find a way to be the perfect man to be her king. When a hurricane hits her island Oscar finds the opportunity to prove his worth and love for Polly. Ms. Gilmore wrote a wonderfully very humorous, sexy, and moving tale filled with sexual chemistry, hysterical situations, and endearing characters that is not to be missed. I loved how she found a way to provide Polly and Oscar a love and future together that neither ever expected. I highly recommend Royal Player to other readers and look forward to reading the next book in this series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    Smart, funny, sexy and sweet.

    I underestimated my emotional connection to this series. The Rourke men are dropping like flies and taking my heart along for the ride. Kylie Gilmore blends her sense of humor with heartwarming romance and an abundance of charm to keep readers coming back for more. There's been enough sitting on the sidelines, now it's Polly's turn to shine. Forget tradition, Polly has a spirit that needs to be in the spotlight. Weighed down by responsibilities, it will take an overlooked Prince to show her that the road less traveled, could be a perfect fit for love. The Princess that started it all is about to claim heart's everywhere. Smart, funny, sexy and sweet. Royal Player is a winner in my eyes.
