Marquita Valentine - Royal Affair review

This is the second book in the Royals in Exile series. I adored Royal Scandal and couldn't wait to get more from the Sinclair siblings.  The majority of the background on this family was found in Royal Scandal, so I do recommend reading that one first, but this one dives into Charlotte's life.  I enjoyed getting 1/2 of the twins' story, but yet getting to see Gen, too. I felt bad for Charlotte and knew her family loved her, but hated how she was treated at times. I wanted her to get her love story! 
The reader immediately sees into Charlotte's head and life as her story begins. I was sucked into her world and felt for this princess.  Her family had been dealt with a tragedy and even years later, was still experiencing the aftermath.  I loved the way Brooks came rushing into her life and watching this wallflower develop into so much more.  I was caught up in their affair and thoroughly enjoyed watching them fall into the relationship they didn't plan for! Even though Brooks Walker wasn't a man liked by Charlotte's siblings, he treated her differently and with care and she soon found herself falling for him. I wanted to cheer them on and loved the way he was with her.  It was a fun, sexy, swoony book that I couldn't put down. It was full of the feels and I adored Brooks.  Their story was easy to get lost in and I highly recommend it!

A sheltered princess goes wild—and makes the best mistake of her life—when she falls for a roguish reporter in this fun, sexy romance from the bestselling author of Royal Scandal.

Online muckraker Brooks Walker has a reputation for exposing the political elite. Now he’s set his sights on the Sinclair siblings, who’ve been embroiled in their fair share of drama ever since their exile to North Carolina. But Brooks has never been afraid to get his hands dirty—until he meets a royal wallflower at a charity ball who makes him reconsider everything. Is Brooks feeling guilty because he knows all the sordid details of her family’s history? Or because he’s putting their relationship first, before his journalistic integrity?

As the “spare” twin, Princess Charlotte has always been the responsible one. So when her sister finally agrees to fulfill her duty as queen, Charlotte gives herself permission to break a few rules by flirting with the very off-limits CEO of Walker Media. Brooks is the worst sort of man to start an affair with, but Charlotte just can’t help it. The trouble is, since she’s no good at playing games, soon she’s tiara over heels in love. And when Brooks comes clean, Charlotte must decide whether his confession is worth a royal pardon.
