Summary

Felix

Things I expect to find at Gadleigh Castle:

  • Rare stained glass, the subject of my dissertation
  • Peace and quiet, to finish said dissertation
  • An escape from the paparazzi swarming around my starlet mother’s latest blockbuster release

Things I don’t expect to find:

  • A hidden door leading to a secret room
  • The most gorgeous man I’ve ever set eyes on
  • Love

Lio

Things I know are expected of me in life:

  • One day soon, I will become the King of Liorland.
  • I will marry a nice woman who will become queen.
  • I will provide heirs to my family’s monarchy.

Reasons that might be difficult:

  • I’m gay.
  • I’m falling in love with Felix Wilde.
  • He has no idea I’m royal.

While it can definitely be enjoyed on its own, Felix and the Prince is the second novel in the new Forever Wilde series about the huge Wilde family from Hobie, Texas, whose patriarchs aren’t above a little meddling if that’s what it takes to help their grandkids find true love.

Beware: Nekkid man parts touch. Let's just say, Felix gets royally screwed in the very best way.

Fall in love with Felix and Lio

I have leapt on every Lucy Lennox audiobook when they were released, consuming them almost immediately because Lucy Lennox + Michael Pauley = one awesome listen. With ‘Felix and the Prince’, however, the audio was to be released a month after the book, so I snapped up the novel and read it.

So why did I grab the audio? Well, Michael Pauley was one of the main reasons. He’s one of my favourite narrators. He is a performer and I feel even more connected to the characters than when I am just reading their story on paper, and that’s saying something, because Lucy’s storytelling is always so powerful. As with all the other audiobooks, Michael does a great job, including the accents for the inhabitants of Gadleigh Castle. The only thing (very small) is his accent for Lio. I think it was supposed to be aristocratic, but it wasn’t consistent. When Michael handles an emotional sex scene, though, who cares about a slight accent? Like I said, small.

Lio and Felix. I was so happy to hear their story again. Felix is going through a dry spell while Lio has never had someone special. Neither comes to Gadleigh Castle searching for anything other than isolation during a time of tumult. Not looking and yet so perfect for each other.

Felix’s self-esteem issues almost derail the relationship because he doesn’t see himself as beautiful. Lio, hiding the truth from Felix, fears their relationship is doomed because he can never come out of the closet.

When real life intrudes, my heart broke just a little bit. I knew it would work out, but I did wonder about the logistics of having a gay sovereign monarch. Lio was as special to me as Felix. He’s seen the world and the cruelty that exists. His experience volunteering in warn-torn countries has spurred him to help raise money as well as donate to worthy charities. This makes him empathetic to the suffering of others.

Felix’s childhood was filled with ups and downs. The story of how he came to love glass is poignant. I loved the intricacies of the glass-blowing process. That there is magic sand on the island adds to the enchantment of the small isle.

Real life intrudes, of course, and it’s up to these two stubborn but loving men to find their own happy ending. I love the secondary characters in the Wilde series as well as this book in particular. Lio’s valet who has served him for 20 years and his sister Hen are there not just to support him, but to knock sense into him a time or two. Felix has Grandpa and Doc. Their relationship was introduced in the first Wilde book and their interference in Felix’s life is again appreciated. We all deserve to have a Doc and Grandpa in our lives.

Oh, and real men do wear pink hats and underwear. Thank you Lucy and Michael.

A Great Story and Narration

Where does Felix and the Prince rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The story is one of my favorites so far and ranks up with the 'Made Marian' series also narrated by Michael Pauley and written by Lucy Lennox. Love the humor and the pace of the stories.

What did you like best about this story?

The descriptions of the glass thoughout Gadleigh Castle was incredible. The level of detail laid out in the story helped in imagining the primary location in the story. The pull of Lio and Felix to one another was wonderful and you couldn't help but smile.

Which scene was your favorite?

There are two scenes actually which standout. The talk between Grandpa Wilde and Lio in the lounge was my favorite. The funniest was early in the book with Felix doing the cheer to himself when he was going to get together with Lio for the first time.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Ignore the Prickly Bits

Any additional comments?

This was another wonderful narration by Michael Pauley. He has done such a great job bringing Lucy Lennox's stories to life. The voices and the consistency between books is admirable. Lucy Lennox's stories tend to have a large multitude of characters but he tries to make each characters voice distinctive. Also he speeds up and slows down to keep you interested in the story depending on the tone the writer is trying to set. Definitely one of my favorite narrators. Good job Michael.!!

Forever Wilde #2

Felix’s grandfathers have sent him on a special trip to Gadleigh Castle to study their rare stained glass so he can finish his dissertation and get away from the papparazi that descend on their small Texas town every time Felix’s mother, a famous (and infamous) actress, releases a new film.

When he meets Lio they both have something to hide. Felix hides his mother’s fame, and Lio hides that he’s the soon to be crowned King of Liorland.

They come from different worlds, and are going in different directions, so how hard can it be not to fall in love? Spoiler: it’s impossible.

Do you like the whole commoner falling in love with Royalty trope? Do you like super hot sex scenes? Do you like some humor mixed with your romance? Have you read anything else by Lucy Lennox and enjoy her writing style? Then run, do not walk, to pick up Felix and the Prince.

Felix and the Prince is an adorable, humorous, sexy as hell, sweet, with only a sprinkling of angst, romance with an absolutely sigh-inducing happy ending.

Michael Pauley brings the Wilde family, and Lennox’s fictional Grimaldi royal family, to life. He highlights the character’s emotions without being over the top about it and makes this an enjoyable listen. I like his character voices, and appreciate that he voices the female characters without being super high pitched. But beware of listening to those sex scenes while at work! *fans self*

Perfection! Over the top. Loved it.

This would be my 10th Lucy Lennox & Michael Pauley audio book. Clearly I enjoy their books and I'm hooked. Felix and the Prince has got to be my favorite so far. It's a must read.

If you have listened to Lucy's books, you then already know that her style of writing hovers near perfection. And then, Michael Pauley makes the books 10 times better! Beyond perfection! :P

The character development of Felix and Lior is just unbelievable. Such beautiful people who are doomed from the beginning and have no chance of being together. Their story keeps a hold on you till the end because you're just dying to know what will happen. I listened to this story non-stop... just couldn't put it down. And now, I want to listen to it all over again. It was simply amazing! It was like riding my favorite roller coaster ... what a ride... lets do it again!

This book is extremely steamy, sensual and sexy. The intimate scenes are hot hot hot!! So be ready. ;)

There are many comical moments between the two; so heartwarming. Actually, the conversation between Lio and Grandpa Wilde is really touchy too.

Definitely a keeper in my library. Highly highly recommended.

Perfect

OMG what a beautiful storyline. I loved it. The characters were strong and sexy, as was the book. Lucy Lennox continues to amaze me with every book, and lets not forget the narrator Michael, he’s my favorite. He puts so much passion in everything he reads. I love listening to him read.

Great book.

Love ir.

I dont usually like audible books because I find it hard listen to thr same voice doing male and female parts. But I think I've been converted. I loved reading Felix snd the Prince so I thought I'd try it. OMG I loved it!! I have read several comments about how good Michael Pauley is and I totally agree. He was excellent with all the different accents and voices. I love Felix and I am so happy he and Lio got to be together. I loved the history of Gadleigh Castle so much that I want to go there. I guess that shows what such a good writer Lucy Lennox is. I cant wait for the next one

A- rating...

My Review:
Overall: 4.25
Performance: 4.5
Story: 4.25

Aww, who would have guessed...a royal relationship for one of the Wildes. Although an unexpected pairing, I did really enjoy this story. I never considered before what being gay might do to a monarchy. It makes you wonder how many royals have been gay in the past and simply hidden it or buried those inclinations.

But between that whole issue and the absolutely gorgeous visuals of the Gadleigh glass...and I just loved this story. I could picture everything about this windswept castle so well and really want to visit there...if only it were real.

Like all the Lucy Lennox stories, this is just pure entertainment. There isn't a ton of angst, but there is emotion and wonderfully developed characters. I liked the conflict on this one...both with Lio and the issue with being a gay king, but also Felix's aversion to press, which is something that is definitely a constant in Lio's life. But I also loved that they had time for their relationship to develop before those conflicts truly became an issue in the story.

Overall, this was another GREAT Lucy Lennox audiobook. I know that when I grab one of hers that I'm going to be totally enchanted and not want to walk away from the audiobook. I'm ready for more in this series!
