She’s the outgoing princess. He drives an RV around the States for a living. Is there any way they can have a successful relationship while they’re both keeping secrets?

Princess Genevieve has always been the outgoing one, but she’s finding herself eclipsed by… everyone.

Her sister is finding love with a Hollywood hottie.

Her mother married the second love of her life.

And her older brother - the king - is about to have a child.

She’s not changing, but everything around her is.

So when she’s offered a chance to run away with the only man she’s ever found herself falling for, she takes it.

Even if it means abdicating her responsibilities, and neglecting to mention that she’s a princess.

But Levi’s keeping something from her, too. She knows he is, but has no idea what it could be.

A princess on the run, far more secrets than should be legal, and a trip down the Mother Road give her a taste of freedom, but when it comes to her relationship with Levi… well, it’s (royally) complicated.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. This gift did not influence my opinion or review.

Also in this series: The Indentured Queen, Beyond Titles & Tiaras, The (Elusive) Princess

You would think that the second in line to the throne would feel rather important. Right? Yet Princess Genevieve struggled with the sense that she wasn’t valued or needed by anyone. When she had the opportunity to escape from the pressures of her life with the handsome man she had been corresponding with for the past two years, she took it!

I found the secrets Gen and Levi kept from each other very interesting, though it made sense why. She wanted him to love her for herself, not her position or her family. He didn’t want anyone to love him for money.

Then, she had a new secret to keep and the road trip originally planned to be for just a few days got very complicated — and not for the reason you might be thinking!

Gen’s journey to find significance took a surprising turn. I loved the way she came to realize her true value as the daughter of the King of kings and loved the author’s choice of who delivered the message. I don’t think there could have been anyone better, or that this scene could have been more touching.

There were a several surprises along the way and plenty of drama.

It’s (Royally) Complicated is a sweet romance with a touch of inspiration. If you enjoy stories of royalty and adventure, you’ll want to be sure to pick up a copy. This story is much better if you are familiar with the events in The (Elusive) Princess. And while a working knowledge of the other books in the Royals of Eyjania series would be helpful, it is not critical. However, if you haven’t read them, you’ll want to by the time you finish this one.
