ARC Review: "Bad Princess" by Julianna Keyes

Bad Princess by Julianna Keyes
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Summary from GoodReads

Notorious for leaping off roofs, maiming foreign royals, and thattwerking incident, Brinley Cantrella of Estau is nobody’s definition of a good princess. She’s fearless and bold, not good and gracious. And after a lifetime of being told she’s unfit to be queen, wearing the crown and helping to usher Estau into a new era is the one dream she’s never dared chase. 

But when her older sister abdicates the throne, all Brinley has to do to inherit the role is not twerk, not maim anybody, and definitely not get caught fooling around topless with Prince Finn, her childhood crush, the only man she’s ever loved…and her sister’s former future husband. 

Finn embodies the definition of good. Tall and handsome, serious and honorable, he always does the right thing—including agreeing to marry his ex’s sister to cover up this latest scandal. Brinley has fallen down stairs, broken teeth and broken bones, but this is the first time her heart has ever been broken. She now has the crown and the prince, and on the surface, life is good—but is being married to a man everyone swears could never love her back good enough? 

Approximately 39,500 words.



I received an e-ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. 

Short, sweet and sexy! Bad Princess follows the misfits of the known as "Bad Princess" Brinley and how an almost drunk mistake follows a small adventure and the romance she develops for her...husband.

I liked this story. While short, it's complete and doesn't leave loose ends. I would even love to see a prequel story about Brinley's sister Ella. And while there is a rollercoaster of emotions the funny times, can't be missed!

About the author:

Julianna Keyes is a Canadian writer who has lived on both coasts and several places in between. She's been skydiving, bungee jumping and white water rafting, but nothing thrills - or terrifies - her as much as the blank page. She loves Chinese food, foreign languages, baseball and television, not necessarily in that order, and will go to her grave swearing that 'ain't' is not a word. She has volunteered in Zambia, taught English in China, and dreams of seeing pink dolphins in the Amazon. It'll happen.
