Summary

Meghan 

After finding my long time boyfriend, James, in bed with another woman, there was only one thing to do with our non-refundable Christmas trip to Miami: go alone and wallow in my sorrow. But, I found something in the fancy south Florida bungalow that I never expected... a man. He was tall, dark, handsome and claimed he owned the house. 

At first, I just wanted him to leave so I could spend the week to myself. But, there was something about this man that attracted me. There was more to him than just his amazing abs and wealth. Maybe, just maybe, he could help me get over James. 

Demetri 

I should have been home at the castle this close to Christmas, but my father's constant pressure to be "proper" and "prepared to rule" drove me away. So instead of celebrating with my family and my people, I was in Miami partying and making a general nuisance of myself. 

That is, until a girl stumbled into the family villa that I was hiding in to avoid those responsibilities. She began making wild claims like "I rented this place" and "put on pants". While I wasn't quite in the mood for company, something about this leggy, vulnerable blond tugged at me in a way other women hadn't.

Panto Prince gets his tights in a twist

Very average predictable tale, with predictable ending. Sweet enough, sweet interactions, not really Christmassy. No humour, no drama, no intrigue, no point really. The ex was called James, Dimitri means James.

Female narration was good, male accent was very thick, but grows on you through the story, but not too old like Sebastian York.

For a really lovely story of a romance with a Prince listen to Reign by Roxie Noir.

The Crown Prince

I enjoyed listening to both the narrators Curt Bonnem and Nicole Blessing. Both did a great job .

So what is a girl to do , when she finds her boyfriend in bed with some one else. You go away for two weeks over the Christmas period , to relax .
But the owner is there, and he is hiding from his family and responsibilities..
This was such a lovely story. We have humor, hot passion, great chemistry, wonderful characters, a little royal blood .

Fun romantic start alas turns to drama

This Audio Book started out really good. So much fun, romance and endearing moments.
I really enjoyed the story until around 1 third through.
Then, alas the emphasis shifted from fun and romance to drama.

There were time shifts, skipping over some fun stuff (starting relationship, continuing of courting and other sexual encounters, bonding of the two main Characters) and (to fast for me) turned into drama only.
And besides the added drama I didn't like, the story also became less credible to me and lost my interest.

I liked the narration, although the accent of Curt (who does Demetri's part) was a bit strong and needed getting used to.

I didn't think there was anything 'Christmassy' about the story, and to add 'Christmas' in the (sub) title is a bit misleading (and maybe meant to draw in more people?)
The only connection Christmas had to the story was that it was an excuse for the Main Characters to give each other a present.

I got this Audio Book for free (thanks!). I'm voluntarily leaving this review.
Opinions and ratings are my own and not influenced by how I got the Audio Book.

thumbs up

Anything thing royal and add in Christmas and it’s the perfect story in my eyes. Totally cheesy story but I loved it despite that. Narration could have been better, the accents weren’t totally believable.

Sarah and Deme!

When Meghan walks in on her boyfriend cheating on her she decides to go on the vacation that they had planned alone with the understanding that he would move out while she was gone. When she arrives at the home she rented the surprise is on her when a sexy stranger is already staying there.

Deme’s family owned the home however he didn’t realize it was rented. He does not want to return home and spend Christmas with his disapproving family so they agree to share.

As they spend time together the chemistry between them ignites but when Deme’s sister comes to bring him home is their fairy tale about to come to an end? I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook and I thought the narrators did a great job with the dialect of both characters.

Very nice

Meghan trying to figure out her life after a breakup. Dem trying to hide from his life. They help each other figure things out. I enjoyed this story and it had a good ending but I wish there would have been an epilogue. I always enjoy the story more when there are male & female narrators working together. They did a great job narrating.

Christmas in April!

Have you ever wanted to just get away? Meghan is taking some time at Christmas to leave her apartment, awaiting her cheating ex to move out. She rents a home in Florida but little does she know, the owner is there! A good looking, arrogant man, Demetri works out an arrangement for them both to stay. There is something about Meghan though that Demetri can't ignore. A story like this is a lot of fun to listen to. The innocence of meeting up at first makes the characters really likable since it's not the draw of the Prince title that attracts Meghan to Demetri, and their chemistry clearly is strong. It's very sweet to watch how Demetri woos her and tends to her though she at times could be a little prickly. The best parts of this book though occur when Demetri is back at his home country. Meeting the family and the interactions with Nadine(his sister), Meghan and the King are indicative to the characters that Amber Burns has created. We get to see how unexpected love is truly the best for this couple.

Accents in this story are important for the Royal family and the two narrators did a great job. I loved Curt Bonnem's voice for Demetri. He held that regal sound with the right touch of arrogance but was able to turn it around to a vulnerability that makes your heart melt. Nicole Blessing brought Meghan to life, voicing the hurt and frustration and eased it in to love and compassion.

laugh out loud funny!

So here it was later tonight and I couldn't sleep. So I downloaded this book and begin to listen. Now remind you my husband is sleeping soundly in the bed next to me. I cannot tell you how many times I woke him up by giggling. It really does have some funny parts.
What do you do when you find a prince that needs to be kicked in the butt and pushed in the correct direction? Well done Amber Burns.

Narration by these two were great and I would listen to them again

Humor, Royalty, Sweetness

I received a copy for an honest and voluntary review.

Meghan, like so many romance novels, finds her boyfriend in bed with another. But this isn’t like so many other such stories, this is better and different. She takes the vacation she’d planned with him and rents an incredible place in Miami. Little does she know that the owner Demetri is there avoiding his Family. He is rich, entitled and funny and sweet. He may sleep around and drink, but it doesn’t make him a bad guy. Once he meets Meghan something blossoms in him.
This is a new twist...the inner dialogue that Demetri has is so funny and sweet.
The narrators were perfect..the accent for Demetri was so unique...
Worth a credit and the time Pure entertainment.

Fairytale romance in the real world

Who doesn't love a fairy tale romance? What I loved about this one was it was realistic. Meghan is heartbroken after catching the man who she thought she would marry in bed with another woman. She takes a vacation in Miami. It was actually the romantic vacation her now ex and her were supposed to take together. She expects a week of relaxing. What she doesn't expect is to wake up to is a naked man in her room stating the house she rented was his. Turns out there was a misunderstanding. They end up sharing the space for her vacation and soon they can't deny the immediate attraction between each other. Just when Meghan thinks her only worry is trying not to fall for this man, the truth of who he is comes out. He's a prince! Before she knows it she is agreeing to go visit his home with him and see a different life than she has ever experienced. She quickly learns that royal life isn't perfect. Feelings between Demetri and her grow strong. He is used to being a playboy but there is something different about this girl who surprised him. Meghan doesn't think she can fit into his life. Demetri is doing all he can to prove she does and that she is what he needs. I loved this book! It was a quick read/listen because I was so enthralled in the story, swooning all the way through. I loved these characters and I really don't want their story to end. I hope there is more from them down the line!

Fun story

Amber had written such a delightful, funny, and heartwarming story. Both Meghan and Deme are escaping painful past experiences. Deme appears to be an arrogant man but his caring attitude towards Meghan surprises him as well as her. This story is filled with funny banter, an awakening of true feelings, conquering past demons, standing up for yourself, and finding true love. Both narrators did an outstanding job of portraying the emotions of the characters. Loved the accents. I asked to receive this Audible book and voluntarily wrote this unbiased review. I highly recommend this Audible book for your listening pleasure.

This was a cute story about a woman being cheated on and taking a vacation to escape what she discovered. However, the storyline was vey predictable and unbelievable. The story lacked definitive information and everything occurred in a 2 week span of time. Curt Bonnem and Nicole Blessing were both new narrators to me and did fine with their narrations.

Thank you for the audio,

Thank you for the audio, I voluntarily give this an honest review. narrators Curt Bonnem and Nicole Blessing was amazing to pair up for this book. Meghan wasn't looking for another relationship after just catching her boyfriend cheating. only wanting to blow off steam and have fun she may have go more then she was looking for with Demetri. when he takes her back home with him, she wasn't really prepared for the way his father tried to send her back. Demetri will do anything to keep her there with him, can he convince her she is right where she is meant to be.?

Enjoyable Modern Royal romance

Royal romances are not my normal fare, I tired this book for a change of pace from the suspense i've been listening too lately. What a pleasant surprise this book was. I really enjoyed it. It was not what you would expect when reading in this trope.
The narration was done perfectly, and these were two new to me narrators.
