[Amazon Review Tour] Royally Relinquished by Hayley Faiman

Title: Royally Relinquished: A Modern Day Fairy Tale
Author: Hayley Faiman
Genre: Contemporary Romance Standalone
Release Date: March 23, 2017
Kindle Unlimited



The only thing royal about Caitriona Geneva Grace is the blue of her beat-up sedan. While luxury and vanity are terms she could use to describe her everyday life, they're not words she lives by. Rather, they're words that keep her fed—barely. As a receptionist at a medical spa, her life is far from glamorous, but she gets by. For Cait, anything beats the life she left behind when she said goodbye to her small town after high school. 

His highness, Prince Henrik Stuart, is a slave to his royal status. Bound by duty and controlled by the crown, he fears a future chained to a woman of good breeding--a match not made in love. While known as the foolhardy prince, the thought of settling down isn't what troubles him. Rather, if he could find a woman who cared nothing of his title, he would give her the world. 

When a weekend trip leads to a chance meeting, both Caitriona and Henrik feel a spark between them unlike any they've experienced before. To each, the other is too good to be true, but one night of fun cannot be denied. 

When she said 'yes' to the handsome, green-eyed stranger, Caitriona didn't know that she was stepping into her very own fairytale. 

What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...except when it's legally binding. 

*Recommended for readers 18+ due to Sexual Content and Language.

3 Stars from Tiffany!

While I am a big fan of Hayley Faiman's Motorcycle Club Series, Royally Reluiquished: A Modern Day Fairy Tale didn't do much for me, although it was nice to read something different by this author.

Right off the bat, I wasn't a huge fan of either character and felt they totally deserved each other. She was a bit of a sad sack, with her bad upbringing and he was an over grown man-child. Pouting because he's a prince and has to marry an ice queen, which he reminds everybody of way too many times.

So these two meet in Vegas, get smashed out of thier minds and the next thing they know, they are bound together forever. She lives in Oregon and him in England. Something that probably should have come up in conversation earlier in the evening. After skipping out on Caitronia (I found myself stumbling over this name constantly) the next morning, Henrick, our prince, soon finds out he's made quite the blunder and now has to decide what to do about it.

Sex and not much more ensues. It seems no matter what this couple is up against, the sex makes it all better. It was too much. I needed these guys to have more of a relationship rather than him dragging her home and telling her what is expected of her.

That said, I did like the way Cait changed the minds of the people around her and finally started standing on her own two feet. The book is well written from dual points of view, however didn't quite hit the mark for me.

32 years young... born and raised in California, did a stint in Oregon only to return to the Golden State. Lived that life a while until the Lone Star State called to us, Hill Country, Texas is where we call home, where our boots rest and loving that country life. Living the life with one bearded power pole climbing husband, two little boys that are full of energy and drive us crazy plus a chocolate lab named Optimus Prime.
