    Controversial Princess

    Wow, just wow ! The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas is the first book in the Smoke and Mirrors Duet. This book was highly anticipated by me and I couldn´t wait to get my hands on it. There are only a couple of authors I can rely on to write stories that speak to me every single time. And Jodi Ellen Malpas is one of them. I still remember reading the This Man Series and how I was blown away. I was sucked in and instantly a fan of the author’s writing. That was the beginning, I haven’t regretted it once. The Forbidden is one of my absolute all time favorite reads and near to my heart. With The Controversial Princess J.M. Malpas wrote a story that spoke to me in more ways than I can count. Meet Adeline Lockhart. She´s a 30 year old princess, groomed to represent kingdom and country. Deep inside she´s a free spirit, but heritage and fate keep her trapped in a golden cage, restricted by rules. The Controversial Princess is a story full of twists and unexpected turns. I was captivated from chapter one. I started reading and I couldn´t put the book down. And now I´m sitting here with a major book hangover and don´t know what to do. I was so deep in with the characters and I connected so easily with them. I´m a sucker for royal stories and The Controversial Princess fits right in. When that works for you too – you better one click this book. The Controversial Princess was fantastic from beginning to end, a romantic, enchanting and at the same time raw and gritty story. A story that needs to be read. I highly recommend The Controversial Princess and can´t wait for the second book, His True Queen.

    When a Princess fights back

    The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas is first book in the Smoke & Mirrors duology. Princess Adeline is the complicated child in the royal family. At thirty she wants nothing to do with her father's marriage plans and sees they hypocritical and false relationships all around her in her families marriages. She wants to be free of the obligations that her birth has shackled her with. Free to live. Free to love. Josh Jameson is many things, most of all hot and famous. The son of a Senator and a movie star Josh gets what he wants but usually its pretty superficial when it comes to women. Adeline presents a challenge. She is a Princess after all. Josh challenges Adeline's perceptions, mostly of herself. The independence she yearns for is bound by her circumstances and Josh's dominance frees her in ways she didn't even know she could be. As they fight each other and then fight for each other in a world where both are under the spotlight it is a battle for them to be together. I liked how it was real work for Josh to get her out of her shell, not just immediate acquiescence. She is a princess after all. The more they connect and the more Adeline becomes herself, the more they risk for each other. I very much enjoyed The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas and the story that was woven. As it progresses the characters and the story line really become more complex and several twist are left for the very end, leaving more complications and battles to be surmounted in the next book. (I voluntarily reviewed an advance review copy of this book I received for free in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

    I love Jodi Ellen Malpas

    Oh that rush I can't stop after reading this book!

    Princess Adeline had me laughing and rooting her on with her own antics. Yes she is a Royal, but after she is done with her duties, she transforms into the real woman hiding behind the crown. When she meets our Hollywood Hottie, Josh, I could have sworn I was going to hate the arrogant ....well you get the picture. He was cocky and so self assured. Then he will wear you down and get beneath your skin. The fairy tale romance... ha ha who am I kidding, there is nothing fairy tale about these two. It is hot and steamy! It will make you get flustered and have your toes curling. Once you think that you have their story figured out, you get thrown into some surprises. The ending had me anticipating that maybe Josh and Adeline can live free. When the unexpected happens you are left with a huge cliff hanger and your jaw dropped to the floor. So many secrets!!! I can not wait until the next book and find out the conclusion of this duet!

    The best royal romance I've read in a long time...

    Royalty falling for a Hollywood celebrity is not new, and Prince Harry wasn't even the first to do so. Does Prince Rainier of Monaco and Oscar-winning actress Grace Kelly ring any bells? So, no, the idea of someone born into a reigning monarchy falling in love with someone who knows what it's like to have cameras capture their every move, whether they're working or not isn't as novel a concept as you'd think, but let's be honest here: it still piques our interest to heightened levels each and every time. Bestselling author Jodi Ellen Malpas's new Smoke & Mirrors duology explores the idea of a princess known for both her beauty and notoriety and a Hollywood heartthrob known for being sinfully irresistible and how the possibility of an "us" can exist in the worlds they're a part of. After all, happily-ever-afters are only guaranteed for princesses in fairy tales. Reality, indeed, bites...hard. The Controversial Princess is none other than Her Royal Highness Adeline of England, also known as Adeline Catherine Luisa Lockhart or simply Addy to her brother Prince Edward, aka Eddie. Her story is one she shares with Joshua Jameson, an American actor who may be considered "royalty" in Hollywood but doesn't have the regal background deemed worthy to be with someone like Adeline. These two were like a couple of comets streaking through the sky but destined to crash into one another. There love story is far from conventional; it certainly isn't a fairy tale, but it's one that's filled with tempestuous passion and romance. I can't really give much away in terms of the story, but what I can say is that this is, without a doubt, one of the most heartrending royal romances that I've ever read, and I've read A LOT in my years. This gets five-plus stars, and now the waiting begins for His True Queen. ♥
