The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas

At the end of the day this was another addictive read from JEM that I am left at the end just wanting more! I can't wait for book two. With that being said, I did have a little trouble getting into the read. The character starts with celebrating her 30th birthday and the age is what I had some issues with. Though she is 30, I felt like she acts impulsive like a teenager at some points. Once I threw her age out the window and just read her as a character with no labelled age, I felt much better about it and connected a lot better with the read. I don't know about you but I am on as big of a Royal Reading kick as absolutely possible and it was completely on accident, haha. I love the romance of a prince or princess and this novel delivered that. I also loved the heat in this book. You know with a JEM read that you are going to get sexy and it is going to be HOT. This novel? Took is to a completely different level and I really enjoyed how the characters developed. AND THAT ENDING. IF I was unsure of the book, that ending sealed that I was on board and dying to read the next novel. NEED IT NOW! Buy On Amazon: Add To Goodreads


Her father is The King of England. She is The Controversial Princess. Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors - lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated. That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defences overwhelms her - his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart. But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice. And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.
