Audiobook Review: Bad Prince (Royally Unexpected, #1). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bad Prince by Lilian Monroe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

My kingdom, my rules… but Elle makes me want to break every single one of them.


The first time I see her, I don’t even know her name.


All I know is I need to have her.


And have her, I do.


This girl is royally screwed and begging for more.


Who am I to refuse a damsel in distress?


It’s what I do.


I’m the prince everyone loves to hate, until they get in a room alone with me.


So, yeah.  She wants me.


That, I expect.


What I don’t expect is for her to run away from me.


And I certainly don’t expect to chase after her.


I’m already in too deep, but I can’t turn back now.


I want her, need her, will do anything to have her again.


… and that includes breaking the biggest rule of all.


In nine short months, this kingdom will have an heir.


Knocked Up by Prince Charming is an accidental pregnancy romance featuring a brooding, possessive hero and his feisty heroine.  Grab a cold glass of water… this contemporary Cinderella retelling is about to get hot!

The heroine: Elle – she never knew her parents, grew up as a foster kid in Grimdale, the poor part of the kingdom. She was able to get a rowing scholarship to the university and trains daily for the royal regatta. She is bullied by the other students and her team members who are from the wealthy part of the kingdom.

The Hero(s): Charlie – the Crown Prince of Farcliff. A little kingdom near the great lakes, between the United States and Canada. His mother died when he was young and his father hates him and thinks him responsible for his mothers death. His father is pushing him to select a proper wife from the elite members of society in order to take his place as king.

The Story: The story is a loosely based cinderella retelling. Ella is not an acceptable match for the prince and isn’t invited to the ball. Though her roommate is invited and plays fairy godmother in giving Elle her ticket, providing a dress, a makeover and more. Elle goes to the ball, meets the prince and runs away at midnight without her white shoes.

Prince Charlie can’t forget the woman from the ball and does what he can to find Elle. Though when he does it isn’t exactly happily ever after. Since Charlie’s father is a difficult man and seems to have some sort of evil plan that somehow involves making sure Charlie is married to one of the acceptable girls in the kingdom, but it also involves plans for a damn project that Charlie’s mother fought against when she was alive.

When Elle finds out she is pregnant, she knows things are not going to work out. She is not one of the girls that is acceptable as a future queen and Charlie has taken every precaution to make sure he never got a girl pregnant so will not be happy with the news.

The narration was done by Roxelana Waters and Nick J. Russo. They did a good job. I thing Roxelena sounded a bit old for a college age girl, but other than that, she did fine. I liked the narration by Nick J. Russo and especially like the fact that it was dual narration. More and more, I am not purchasing romance audiobooks unless they have dual narration.
