A simple notification turns my world upside down...

The tabloids are reporting,
I’ve taken the crown and run. (Not entirely true)

As you might have guessed,
I’m not an ordinary girl and I don’t lead an ordinary life,
But that doesn’t mean I always follow the rules.
This time, though, I feel compelled to obey.

Which means I have to find a king,
To sit alongside my throne,
Or lose it all.

With only the clothes on my back,
I head to the land of majestic playboys,
Where a royal rebel strides right into my life.

With his sultry eyes and sinful lips,
He turns my world right-side up.

The press is calling him washed up. (I think he’s anything but)

Gorgeous, sexy, irresistible,
And utterly charming,
He’s exactly what I’m looking for.
Everything is almost too perfect,
Too easy.

Until I discover,
This hot-blooded royal has a reason for being here.
And it’s more than just me.
That thing I said about easy,
Turns out
Nothing ever is.

My royal rebel has a name,
It’s Prince Adrien Laurent.
My name is Princess Victoria Blanchette.
And this is our story.

Tori just broke up with her fiancΓ© - they're better off as friends. But now she needs a new husband asap. Because if she can't find one, her parliament will not make her the new Queen of Alexandria and chaos would ensue on the Vespa Islands.
Off to Rhode Island we go. To the town where all royal bachelors spend their summers! Best place to find a suitable royal husband.
But what if you can't forget the one-night stand you had at the airport hotel on the way there?
She won't ever see him again, and he wasn't a suitable guy anyway ... but what if he turns up in Newport too - and what if he IS suitable for a princess??

Well, this was so cute!
It starts a bit confuzzling for my tastes. Too many complicated chapters in the beginning. We get a prologue and then we get two different journalists who write about the royals ... but then we get the story from Tori & Adrien's POV. Once you get used to it, it's totally ok! Just took me a moment.

The story is sweet and fun and sexy and exciting.
Yes, it's all a bit silly with the ΓΌber-fictional kingdoms and all the royals, but pfff, I didn't mind that at all.

Adrien is mega sexy and adorable and a bit lost in his life at the moment.
And Tori is so sweet and innocent-ish and they would be perfect as a royal couple. But of course it's not really all that easy ...

I also love all the supporting cast - like Tori's besties aka PA's Rachel and Ava. And all the left-over princes!
We'll hear more from this world soon!

I think what many readers will find fresh and interesting in this book ... I didn't much care for. The constant chapters from the press's POV - it disturbed my reading flow and it just gave us shortened info about stuff that I would've liked to read about a bit longer. The story was a bit short and 'unflowing' because of those press chapters. Would've been better without them. Kim could've added a few more chapters with more details and more about everything. The wedding, the falling for each other, the mystery about the bad people. So much about everything was missing in this story. Especially since this was the first book in this Royal Series and added to Tori & Adrien's story we had to meet ALLLL the people!
But I still really liked reading it and I will read all the other princes' books too!

WASHED UP ROYAL was a sweet & sexy & exciting Royal Romance!!
Run to your nearest amazon for your own Prince Adrien - this one is MINE!!!!

ARC received for an honest review

It is always a good day when a new Kim Karr story turns up on your kindle.

This surprise release was just the antidote I needed to all the Christmas and New Year celebrations.  I was able to sit down and just enjoy a read, which hadn't happened for a few weeks.

Tori and Adrien's story was a cute, sexy, story of finding real love against the odds, when you have family and your country breathing down your back to make a suitable match.

Our lovelies are both a little lost at the moment, and find a bit of sense and companionship in each other.  I love how they meet and how their stories came together.

There are a lot of secondary characters, that at first as the story is starting were a little confusing - however I think that is more me than the story - blogger burn out is a real thing, and I was in the middle of it.  It is also setting up characters for the next books in this series too.

I just wanted Tori and Adrien to be together.  But can they make it with all the outside pressures on them?

To find out, you will need to read for yourself.

Fun, flirty and fabulous, I cannnot wait to see where Ms Karr takes this series.

Please don't make me wait too long to find out!
