Some men are born responsible, some men have responsibility thrust upon them. Henry Charles Albert Edgar Pembrook, Prince of Wessco, just got the motherlode of all responsibility dumped in his regal lap. He’s not handling it well. Hoping to force her grandson to rise to the occasion, Queen Lenora goes on a much-needed safari holiday—and when the Queen’s away, the Prince will play. After a chance meeting with an American television producer, Henry finally makes a decision all on his own: Welcome to Matched: Royal Edition. A reality TV dating game show featuring twenty of the world's most beautiful blue bloods gathered in the same castle. Only one will win the diamond tiara, only one will capture the handsome prince’s heart. While Henry revels in the sexy, raunchy antics of the contestants as they fight, literally, for his affection, it’s the quiet, bespectacled girl in the corner—with the voice of an angel and a body that would tempt a saint—who catches his eye. The more Henry gets to know Sarah Mirabelle Zinnia Von Titebottum, the more enamored he becomes of her simple beauty, her strength, her kind spirit…and her naughty sense of humor. But Rome wasn’t built in a day—and irresponsible royals aren’t reformed overnight. As he endeavors to right his wrongs, old words take on whole new meanings for the dashing Prince. Words like, Duty, Honor and most of all—Love.

Royally Matched is the second book in the Royally series and it follows Henry and Sarah. Henry is the prince of Wessco and Nicholas brother. He wasn't meant to become Wessco's next king, but his brother chose Olivia over the throne and now it's Wessco is Henrys responsibility. Henry doesn't seem to be the most fitting person for ruling at first sight, but there is more to him than it seems. Sarah is a bookworm like most of the people who will read this book and I am sure many of you will identify with her as I did. For most of the book she is a good, likeable and rational person. Once her sister said some stupid things to her, though she stopped thinking and fell for whatever Penelope said. It was like she didn't know Henry at all. Of course the sisters aren't the only ones whom I blame for this. If Henry had spoken to her instead of just doing things some events wouldn't have happened. For me this is the part where things started and went downhill for me. I felt like the drama was created for the sake of having some drama in the book and it felt a little off. Also, once the figured things out, both of them did some things (I can not say, because it will spoil some parts of the book) that even if they sort of make sense weren't things I liked and I didn't find them fitting. If I exclude those things I will be able to say that Royally matched was a good book and it made me chuckle. It wasn't as good as Royally Screwed, but it's still a good story.
