So there I was selling bikinis out of my truck in South Beach Miami, getting ready to kick off a wet t-shirt contest when the world’s biggest grouch approached me – Keller Fitzwilliam.
The man had the sultriest British accent I’ve ever heard. And he looked like he just walked off a Viking boat and into a suit tailored specifically for his impressively muscular frame. Only problem is, he had the warmth of an ice pick and he kept telling me he was here to take me back to his home country.
Of course, I didn’t follow him. I might be up for a good time, but I’m also educated enough to know leaving with a stranger isn’t smart. Well, that’s until he mentioned my mom’s name. My mom who passed away several years ago.
So after some serious fact-checking, my bikini-clad bum went with him to a sub-arctic country I had never heard of just north of the British Isles, where I found out my grandpa was the king of said freezing country, and I was the one and only heir.
Desperate to learn more about my mom, I decided to give this princess thing a chance. Good idea, right? Wrong.
Because Mr. Ice Pick was put to the task of training me and he’s not just cold as ice, he’s pompous, aggravating, and possessive. And did I mention we have to share a bathroom in a tiny castle? We are oil and water every single day and even though he’s training me to be queen, I have this simmering desire to kneel before him.

As always I am here for all the RomCom smooze Meghan Quinn can offer me and Royally Not Ready was just the right amount of chuckles and swoon I needed this weekend. So here we go…
Up first, Lily, our amazingly awkward and sexually word vomit heroine. She is quirky and fun, though her dialogue semi-goes from being an actual adult to almost a childish personality which irked me from time to time but her playful attitude was definitely where most of the entertainment came from while Keller was the overly broody man meat. He was rather charming, and after putting up with Lily’s passive aggressive approach, he is a saint.
Their romance was a massive push and pull for sure. There was some constant boundary crossing but in a fun way. They had an instant connection that Lily is constantly trying to get Keller to admit but ultimately they do start to form a comfortable bond. There were still some moments where I felt their sexual tension was more so forced than just a natural evolution but I do think most of that was caused by Lily, she did not accept no for an answer. Both interesting and yet still a bit too much.
Bottom line, Royally Not Ready was absolutely a fun read. Meghan Quinn always creates such amazing characters in both the main characters and the supporting characters. The romance was delicious, the drama was believable, and the ending was perfection. And even though the ‘rags to riches’ with enemies to lovers type tropes but this was such a fun read with all kinds of twists and turns. I was either drooling from sexual tension or laughing full force until my chest hurt.
