A modern princess. A charming commoner. Can they hurdle tradition to find true love? Princess Elizabeth "Liz" of York isn't interested in a fairy tale life. Determined to use her elite platform to champion children's causes, she'd much rather raise awareness than find her prince. If only she could stop picturing one certain gardener with vivid hazel eyes.... When the relentless paparazzi invade her space, Liz's crush comes to her rescue and steals her heart. Tossing aside centuries of tradition for something real, she takes Roman's calloused hand and braces for the backlash. But after her progressive approach ruffles more than a few feathers, one member of the monarchy vows to keep the princess locked in her stylish but decidedly ivory tower. Can Liz break through her birthright to find a powerful kind of love?

The Princess PoseThe Princess Pose by Aven Ellis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The Princess Pose - This is the second book in Modern Royals series, by Aven Ellis. I had the amazing privilege of listening to this book back-to-back with the first book, Royal Shade of Blue. You do not need to read the first book to read this one. However, you totally should because it's amazing.

Liz is the cousin of Christian Chadwick, which is the royal from the previous book. Her story is just as adorable and enthralling as the first book. We have a slightly deeper glance at royal living. And as Liz begins to explain Roman's character, we can understand that she is not an ordinary royal. She is definitely different, much like her cousin, Christian.

I enjoyed Roman's character, even if not as much as I enjoyed Christian. But he was still wonderful and he worked with Liz really well. They are are "MFEO"

Once again, Andrea Emmes brings the characters to life. In this book, Andrea narrates from Liz's perspective and give her a unique voice. The audio was exceptional. I have no complaints.
