Things I expect to find at Gadleigh Castle:
– Rare stained glass, the subject of my dissertation.
– Peace and quiet, to finish said dissertation.
– An escape from the paparazzi swarming around my starlet mother’s latest blockbuster release.
Things I don’t expect to find:
– A hidden door leading to a secret room.
– The most gorgeous man I’ve ever set eyes on.
Things I know are expected of me in life:
– That I will one day soon become the King of Liorland.
– I will marry a nice woman who will become queen.
– I will provide heirs to my family’s monarchy.
Reasons that might be difficult
– I’m gay.
– I’m falling in love with Felix Wilde.
– He has no idea I’m royal.
Told in a dual POV Felix and the Prince follows another member of the Wilde family from Texas to an island castle where love blooms among the stained glass.
Felix’s grandfathers have sent him on a special trip to Gadleigh Castle to study their rare stained glass so he can finish his dissertation and get away from the papparazi that descend on their small Texas town every time Felix’s mother, a famous (and infamous) actress, releases a new film.
When he meets Lio they both have something to hide. Felix hides his mother’s fame, and Lio hides that he’s the soon to be crowned King of Liorland.
They come from different worlds, and are going in different directions, so how hard can it be not to fall in love? Spoiler: it’s impossible.
Do you like the whole commoner falling in love with Royalty trope? Do you like super hot sex scenes? Do you like some humor mixed with your romance? Have you read anything else by Lucy Lennox and enjoy her writing style? Then run, do not walk, to Audible and pick up Felix and the Prince.
Felix and the Prince is an adorable, humorous, sexy as hell, sweet, with only a sprinkling of angst, romance with an absolutely sigh-inducing happy ending.
Michael Pauley brings the Wilde family, and Lennox’s fictional Grimaldi royal family, to life. He highlights the character’s emotions without being over the top about it and makes this an enjoyable listen. I like his character voices, and appreciate that he voices the female characters without being super high pitched. But beware of listening to those sex scenes while at work! *fans self*
All in all I had a good time listening and I’m looking forward to Otto’s story. Second chance, friends to lovers romance anyone? Yes, please!
