The Swedish Prince by Karina Halle

The Swedish Prince

**A standalone romance inspired by the classic film, Roman Holiday.**I never believed in fairy-tales.Never held out for Prince Charming.Growing up poor in small-town California as the oldest of six siblings, I knew I would never ride off into the sunset with anyone. That was even more apparent when a senseless tragedy took the lives of my parents, forcing me to become the sole guardian of our dysfunctional household at the mere age of twenty-thre...

    4.5 stars!! A light hearted, yet emotional royal romance that was sweet, sexy, and kept a huge smile on my face! Karina Halle does contemporary romance so well. I adored this book!Maggie was a student in NYC, living her dream, until her entire life got turned upside down. Now she is back home in small town California raising her 5 (yes, I said 5) siblings. She works hard and is focused on them. Maggie never dreamed in a million years she would me...

    ➳This was such a cliche romance, but at the same time, filled with so much fantasy and love and admiration towards the story plot... Loved it so much! ➳This book was just so adorable, I truly did enjoy it more than what I thought I would. I was expecting some sort of angsty-romance that would have kept me in the loop, going around and around trying to find the spark that a romance needs. But I was mistaken and for once I am glad I was since t...

    The Swedish Prince is a endearing, refreshing, and completely a captivating standalone that I just adored. How can you not love a Royal Prince, from Sweden of all places? How can you not fall in love with a girl giving up her dreams to take care of her five siblings when tragedy strikes? This story is about two lost souls, one who has everything he wants, except love, and the other one that has nothing but the love of her siblings. They meet unde...

    I have to think about the rating.I hate the heroine, hated her..interviewing a person without let them know that they being interview is an invasion of privacy and she should have never done it. IMO he should have never asked her out, she was stupid following her stupid friend's advice. She even sounded stupid when she said that she wanted to help him. She was lying to him because that wasn't her intention, her intention was to sell the interview...

    4 'Always more, never less' Stars!ARC provided by the author via Social Butterfly PR in exchange for an honest review.I am really into light, sexy, almost no-drama romances and Karina surely delivered that with The Swedish Prince! I was really excited to see how she would develop this theme of the royalty world colliding with the normal world and I have to say I quite enjoyed it. Also, did I mention Karina does give us lots of heat? Yep, this boo...

    4-4.5 ★'s “Always more, never less.”So, this is a typical prince-trying-to-find-himself who runs into a young woman-who's-just-trying-to-make-ends-meet story but you know when you read a Karina Halle story that there no such thing as "typical". However, I did have my reservations...as in been there, read that but Karina Halle surprised me. I don't know why since I've read and loved most of her books. And I always feel like she manages to pu...

    And they all lived happily ever after…. Who doesn’t love a great fairytale? I certainly do and Karine Halle delivers with a modern day sweet love story.Maggie’s world is turned upside down with one phone call. Her parents are dead. Her life of being a student and chasing her dreams have been ripped from her. She now needs to step up and care for her five siblings, while drowning in her own grief. Not many people would cope with something as...

    This might be the most painful review I've written because I absolutely adore this author, I adore EVERY book I've read from her, and I know how much she loved writing  The Swedish Prince. I can rattle off a dozen Karina Halle titles that are some of my absolute FAVORITE books ever, so it pains me to say that I just couldn't find a connection with this one. I searched and dug for that emotional chord that typically comes so easily when I read Ha...

    Enchanting from start to finish!And Karina Halle has done it again. I LOVED LOVED LOVEEEEED The Swedish Prince ❤. Whether Karina writes dark or contemporary romance, it doesn't matter—she makes my heart sing with her words. I found Halle's voice spellbinding; once I start reading her books, there is nothing that breaks my connection with them until I hit the end. And this time was no different. I devoured The Swedish Prince. Viktor & Maggie l...

    Love is the best dream you can have. I was all over the map while reading this one. At any given moment, I was swooning, rolling my eyes, angry, or completely melting. By the end, I had no idea how to rate this book. So I asked myself, Are you glad you read it? The answer: DEFINITELY! In fact, for all its flaws, I may even re-read it in the future!So you all know how this trope goes . . . Maggie is a downtrodden 23 year-old who's struggling fin...

    **ARC provided in exchange for an honest review**3.5 starsI love Karina Halle's books/writing, and I always trust her to deliver a great story with fun characters. The Swedish Prince started out really good, I was in particular kind of obsessed with the HOT Swedish Prince Viktor. He was a very nice and understanding persona and I liked him right away. Maggie, has been dealt a bad hand, but she tries to make it work with what she has. She left eve...

    ⭐⭐ 2 STARS ⭐⭐Overall it was alright.Karina Halle's writing is decent, the plot was cliché but reading the blurb I was expecting that.The characters development felt unbalanced to me, as for all purpose and intent Prince Victor seemed as interesting as a carboard cut out of Prince Harry. Pretty facade but lacking any depth (except in his pants.). Maggie on the other hand was a good heroine and watching her trying to fulfill her imposed pa...

    I LOVED this book! Emotional, funny, heart-warming, sexy and romantic- this was a fantastic story! The writing was exceptional- I was hooked from the prologue and didn’t want to put this down. A top pick of 2018! Highly recommend!

    I received an e-ARC in exchange for an honest review. Review and blog tour can be found on *Milky Way of Books*One delightful, emotional and pretty much amazing story from Karina Halle! She made my week with this book since I was very sick and wanted something good to get me through the tissues and the running nose...and the busted ear.Maggie's and Viktor's stories were sad and very aching. I believe that Maggie deserves a statue for all her effo...

    DNF at %40I hated the heroine! When she first saw the hero, she saw him naked by accident and she was instantly obsessed with his big d**k (how original, right?) Well, she also liked the rest of him. Then, she met him again when he was in a bit of trouble and without knowing who he was, she helped him.He asked her for a date the following day and she accepted willingly. But unfortunately, before this date, she learnt that he was the prince of Swe...

    4.5 “Always more, never less” starsWhen I saw that Karina Halle was basing her latest book on one of my all-time fave classic movies, Roman Holiday, I was sold. When she announced Armie Hamer as her muse, I was hooked.Karina has delivered a sweet, sexy and beautifully romantic story. A handsome Prince with a broken heart, a girl struggling to keep her head above water while caring for her five younger siblings, and a royal fairytale about fin...

    3.5 – 4 starsI haven’t read a Karina Halle read in a long time. I was seduced by the cover and the blurb for this one. I wanted a typical prince book and for the most part I got it.The book started out strong and I love a single “mom” kind of read. The heroine has to take care of her 4 younger siblings with her 18-year-old brother. I really like that storyline and I found Maggie endearing. She’s a housekeeper now, giving up her dreams o...

    4.5 starsThe Swedish Prince is the sweet romance you've been waiting for. It's got comedy, heat, romance, and tears all rolled up into a fantastic package. Karina surprised me with this one, as I was expecting something totally different that what I got and I loved every second of it. A rags to riches story without any kind of gold digging involved, Maggie isn't looking for love but finds it when she walks in on Viktor naked in his hotel room. It...

    This was ok, but didn't really grab me. Way too far-fetched for me, and while I quite liked the hero (the prince) he was a tad too rough and dirty in the bedroom compared with how he was the rest of the time, so that seemed a little hard to believe. (view spoiler)[Also, choking someone during sex is not arousing for me... (hide spoiler)]Heroine was ok but had a potty mouth to match his potty mouth, and I struggled to like her after her comment in...

    On a side note … I had an eye on this author for a while now – always browsing through her new releases – but no matter which blurb I opened – I always encountered the same “issue”. Not sure why but I always liked the blurb on the first look – but on the second I would always doubt my first impression as there was always something that had me second-guessing if the plot was the right one for me. Then I saw the plot of “The Swedish...
