Perry and Her Princes (Kingdom of Veronia Book 1)
by Serena Akeroyd
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Fast Burn, Contemporary RH Romance
Available on Kindle and Kindle Unlimited
Down and Dirty
Just the right slice of contemporary naughty. Worth a Read.
What is it about?
For the last six years, Perry has enjoyed a close-knit friendship with George, even if she secretly longs for just a hint of the casual affection he throws at other girls. He’s gorgeous, kind, thoughtful, the perfect friend… and a Prince of Veronia.
Now he has to venture home for political reasons and he is brining Perry with him, ostensibly to use her scientific Doctorate to help the small, but wealthy country handle a severe drought… yet George seems to have other plans in mind. He wants something from Perry, and somehow his brother, the Crown Prince Edward, is in the thick of it.
Contemporary RH done right
A bit of the prince & me spiced with the gorgeous nerd girl from the princess diaries – and a complicated RH element as well! Unique and refreshing, it tackles desire along with political realities few of us consider.
Perry is a bright woman with great potential to be a fantastic leading lady in the series, pulling both the country, and her men, around her as the plot inevitably thickens in future installments. There was something sweet about her, an earnestness that was conveyed well in the narrative and makes her stick out in my mind long after I closed the book.
The guys, on the other hand, are rather mundane – aside from George. Perhaps there wasn’t enough time to build them up, but they lacked definition here.
Third Person, multiple POV
- Well written.
- Love a long term friend with the secret love.
- Science for the win!
- FMC is older than the typical 18-21 fare, considering she has a bloody doctorate!
- Love George…. not sure I fully understand him.
Having only ever flown in the cattle section, this kind of luxury was beyond anything her plebian mind could have dreamed up. (3%)
Fun, fresh and worth reading. Perfect for fans of royal romances or the Reverse Harem genre.
