#Review The Swedish Prince by Karina Halle


A few days ago I had the chance to read Karina Halle’s newest release and I loved the book so much that I have to talk you about it. Are you ready to meet THE SWEDISH PRINCE?


A swoon-worthy, sexy & utterly charming STANDALONE romance inspired by the classic film Roman Holiday, from the New York Times bestselling author of Bad at Love and The Pact

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-three.

Then a fateful encounter literally brought Prince Charming to my doorstep.

At first I thought Viktor was just your average businessman passing through, albeit obscenely handsome, six-foot-five, blue-eyed, and mysteriously rich.

But soon I discovered the truth behind Viktor’s façade.

Beneath his quiet, enigmatic gaze and cocky charm, is a man who is running away from who he really is. A role he’d rather not fulfill.

He is Viktor of House Nordin, His Royal Highness, The Crown Prince of Sweden.

Yet uncovering Viktor’s secret was only the first step.

I didn’t expect to fall in love with him.

I didn’t expect to have my whole life turned upside down.

When you’re from two different worlds, can your hearts meet somewhere in the middle?

Or do happily-ever-afters only exist in fairy-tales?

WARNING: The Swedish Prince is oh-so sweet, enchanting and funny, but it does contain foul language (lots of the F word) and graphic sexual scenes (lots of dirty talk). Reader discretion is advised for those who are sensitive.

With an epic beginning, Karina Halle tells the story of Maggie, a girl who lost her parents in a tragic way, and how her path crossed with Viktor, who besides being a handsome man is also the Crown Prince of Sweden. 

Maggie lives in a small town in California, and she's guardian to four of her five siblings. She's also maid in a little hotel, and it's there precisely where she see Viktor for the very first time. Hanging out in his room. Naked. 

I love how the author describe their first encounters because she doesn't skimp in details, the growing tension, the chemistry of the characters... everything is there for the reader to enjoy.

Maggie's dynamic with her siblings is hectic, and sometimes seems she's about to lose control, and it's so realistic that anyone can feel related. Viktor's inner dialogues were great, and how he experimented the freedom of being someone unknown in foreign country was pretty awesome; the way he acknowledged his feelings toward Maggie and the sexual tension between them... God! that... I have no words to describe it, but it was intense.

This book had a 'classic RomCom' vibe at the beginning and trapped me instantly. Viktor and Maggie were spectacular characters (well developed, strong and complex, but adorable at the same time) so it's impossible not to love them while reading. I felt like watch movie the entire time. A wonderful one. The kind of movie you see and never forget. That's how special this book was, how romantic the story was, and how awesome is to learn about a different country and culture thanks to the author's research. I felt I was in every place the characters were. I saw Sweden through their eyes and felt in love. 

I think this one of the best books I've read this year so far (and I also hope Karina is planning to write about Magnus in the near future).
