Typical Alexa Riley ~ OTT goofy HEAs

UPDATED 7/27/19 ~ All of Alexa Riley’s books have been removed from KU. There is no way I would spend a credit on this.

Audio borrowed via KU.

As long as you understand that these short stories are over the top goofy, insta-love, and smutty, you’ll probably be OK. But it’s still subpar dialogue and inconsistent narration.

Each novella is about a different “royal” couple (the authors don’t even bother giving the countries names) that immediately fall in love, have sex, and then get married. Riley is an admitted fan of epilogues, so even though these are short ~ each has at least one epilogue.

Drawbacks for me. The constant reference by all the “Kings” that they are going to “breed” their intended/wives. This isn’t sexy to me and kills even an OTT mood during sex scenes. Also, the male narrator has a nice voice and during the first two novellas he’s trying to give each King a distinctive “accent”. Unfortunately he can’t seem to hold the accent and it drifts in and out. The first story was kind of British and the second was almost Southern (Texas? Georgia? I don’t know what he was going for, it was all over the place). It distracted from the stories and would have been better if he just used his own voice.

For me this was a mindless & short break, but I’m glad I borrowed it via KU since I’d never listen again. Absolutely NOT worth a credit.

quick, dirty, romance

these stories have a HEA quality to them. they are full of quick, searing hot passion with only a hint of royal protocol. while the stories are cute, I can't help but want more content and depth from her writing.

I could have done without the male narrator...

I’m a huge fan of Alexa Riley and she’s almost always a “one-click” author for me. I definitely like her earlier works better than some of the new stuff, but I did end up buying each of the Princess books individually. I have been waiting for some of her earlier books to come out on Audible (for a long time, there was only one that wasn’t part of the For Her and For You series, which I loathe).

That being said, since I owned the individual books, I knew the premise going in. The female author was good and I had no issues with her. The male author, however, kind of bugged me. His voice was better in the second story than the first. I understand that he had to voice differently based on personalities, but the first one was tough to get through listening to his voice. It sounded less “alpha” and more “a**hole.” The other stories he voiced were better, so I was able to put that aside to finish the books, but it still irked me. You win some, you lose some...

Male narration is awful

Male accent so awful, I honestly questioned finishing. I just wanted it to stop.

Good gravy! That's a hot mess of crazy!

It wasn't until after I started listening to this audiobook that I managed to look up some of the reviews. Now I understand why these books are so over-the-top. In addition to the meal narrator who has a voice that is so dramatic, The stories are all instalove and use vocabulary that had me rolling my eyes. That doesn't mean the story the word entertaining. I enjoyed the 3rd and 4th stories a lot. I think it was more entertaining from a silly perspective than anything else.

Okay- not great.

I've owned this audiobook for a while now and it took me forever to get through it. The female reading tried to put a British accent on two of the characters and failed- she couldn't keep it going throughout the sentences. I wasn't too enamored with the male voice either. It just didn't work for me. I kind of found it a little creepy.

The stories are vintage AR with the insta love, but again, I was put off by some of the dialogue. I've never been a fan of role play so when the men are demanding to be called 'King' while they're in bed just weirds me out.

Delightful

Each book contains insta-love, passion, and overall goodness. If you like over the top alpha males whom go after what they want, and turn all gooey when they get it; you’ll love these sweet, and sexy stories. I’ve read all of these books, but listening to them is a wonderful delight.

Steamy & Entertaining

The characters were great, the actors really brought the characters to life. Of course the stories are over the top but the stories are well written and entertaining.

Hot novellas about kings finding their queens

Overall these novellas are entertaining and hot. They are filled with possessive Kings looking for their queens. These stories are erotic as hell and will definitely get you hot and bothered. They were fun to read and enjoyable stories to quickly read to pass the time. What made these hot as hell stories even more enjoyable were the on point narrators. I loved them so much. They had some great accents and boy were those sex scenes hot as can be. I highly recommend listening to these fun and hot novellas in audio because it is so worth it. Laurie West and Hunter Millbrook killed it. Loved it.
