Release+Review-Once Upon a Scandal-Madison Faye

Title: Once Upon a Scandal
Series: Royally Screwed #6
Author: Madison Faye

Release Date: October 1, 2018


Then she met his best friend, a second prince.
Then she learned they like to share, and that’s when things got interesting.
That’s when things got downright scandalous.

My life has never been a fairytale. Absent parents, a grandmother gone too soon, and a job working the kitchens for the most heinous bitch in the Kingdom of Bandiff.

But that’s before I sneak into the hottest royal ball on the planet. That’s before I waltz right into them.

The McDermott Princes. Princes, plural. There’s two of them – both gorgeous beyond belief, alpha as hell, and more tempting than sin. Both with their eyes on me and both with that look that says that I’m theirs.

Two princes, one baker. This might sound like too many cooks in the kitchen, but they say they like to share. They say they’ll tear their whole kingdom down to make me theirs. They say they want to make me their Queen.

Pretty soon, breaking into a royal ball is the least of my problems.

This is a disaster waiting to happen. It’s filthy, and oh-so-wrong. It’s a royal scandal of epic proportions, and I’m right in the middle of it.

…I’m right in the middle of them.

Maybe this is a fairytale after all. Ever heard of the cook who found a crown? How about two crowns? Two big, dominant, mouthwatering, pulse-quickening crowns.

I’ve never found a happy ever after. Now, I think I’m about to find two of them.

This is a freaking sexy hot take on a Cinderella story crossed with bad boys of royalty. This will keep you warm on a cool fall night! This is a standalone, but it is book six of a series. You can enjoy this book alone, but I am excited to try out some of the other books in the series to get to know more of the friends from this book.

The Princes of Nessa are out to enjoy a night of fun at their friend's expense. While King Rian is trying to find a Queen, the Princes Shane and Adam are out for fun, though they are finding themselves wishing for a woman to share their life. So when Vi sneaks into the King's royal ball and gets spotted by two handsome men, the baker finds herself in a very hot situation! I found this a witty and wonderful fairytale story with whimsical fun and hot men.

I think Shane and Adam are my favorite characters in this book. They aren't true blood brothers, but brothers who's bond formed due to circumstance and time and trust; leaving them brothers in the truest sense of the word. They've had their fun, and despite being Princes, have managed to keep their personalities alive and well and don't fit the stereotypical idea of royalty. So while they give their friend King Rian a hard time about finding a bride, they find themselves ready to move on to the next stage in their own lives. Vi is a young woman stuck in sucky situation, with only her best friend for company. She's a great pasty decorator, stuck as a cook in privileged home with no thanks for her efforts. Her backstory is a little short on details, but none of that matters when Shane and Adam see her across the ball. She's still a feisty and awesome woman, with lots of dreams for them to make true!

These characters turn the heat on your sexy oven all the way up. All. The. Way. Literally the stuff dreams are made of, at least for Vi! Shane and Adam are giving and considerate lovers. So while of course they have Book Boyfriend royal hotness on their side, they are also careful and respectful of their prospective paramour. Their words and actions set Vi off, and she responds to their charms.

I loved reading this book! It was a fun way to spend my Sunday afternoon. It was quick, and Ms. Faye was able to draw you in quickly. It was apparent early on it was a Cinderella story, but despite knowing the idea, it wasn't could it be with TWO hot princes! So it was a cross of two awesome story types, bad boy royalty and Cinderella. All the characters had witty dialogue, and well written personalities.

This book was a great read. Not just as a menage romance, but as a reminder to be yourself even in the face of adversity, and to take a chance on yourself. May we all end up as happy as Adam, Vi, and Shane! And I loved how this book set up Emilia and King Rian's story, and gave us bits about other characters that already have books-I love immersing myself in a good book family! I've already downloaded book one, and will be looking for book seven which I can only hope is Rian and Emilia's story.
