The Controversial Princess by Jodi Ellen Malpas
Publication Date: May 22nd, 2018
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Her father is The King of England.
She is The Controversial Princess.
Regarded as down to earth by the press and rebellious by The King, Princess Adeline refuses to bow to the royal expectations her title carries. She knows better than anyone that the united front of the royal family is nothing but smoke and mirrors – lies and secrets masked by power and privilege. She wants no part of it, and she will never surrender to The King’s demand to marry a man she does not love. But despite Adeline’s determination to retain her free will, she remains deeply unfulfilled, feeling caged and suffocated.
That is until she meets Josh Jameson. Drawn in by his confidence, Adeline is soon captivated by the scandalously sexy American actor. His ability to penetrate her defences overwhelms her – his touch is pure fire, and his allure overpowering. Nothing has ever made her feel so alive in a world where she’s otherwise slowly drowning. However, while Josh may be Hollywood royalty, he’s not actual royalty, and Adeline knows The King and his advisors will do everything in their power to keep them apart.
But Josh Jameson becomes the princess’s ultimate vice.
And although she bows to no one, she bows to him.

THE FORBIDDEN, is set for release in August 2017.

5+ STAR Review by Jodi for Ruby Red Romance Review
I want to start this review by saying, when I started in the Romance book world, I had three authors I read all the time. I obviously started with E.L. James and my passion for these books grew from there. Next was K. Bromberg, followed by Jodi Ellen Malpas. I instantly fell in love with all things JEM. This story is no exception to that. I loved this freaking story. I loved everything about this story. I love the idea of royals misbehaving. I love that it’s a princess and not a prince. This story is everything I could want and more.
Princess Adeline is prim and proper when she needs to be, but in reality she is screaming to let loose and live her life. A life that she has only imagined, because who could honestly be free when your a Princess. Her need to escape only grows when she meets Josh Jameson, Hollywood actor. Josh is everything she wants but can’t have. He’s sexy, hot, funny, and makes her realize that her dreams could really come true.
This story ends in a cliffhanger…which I kind of figured it would, but please, please don’t let that deter you from reading this amazing story. I found myself understanding Adeline more and more as I saw how hard she was fighting to find herself, but still maintain her duty to her King and country. It’s an impossible situation for sure. As will all of JEM books, this one kept me intrigued until the very end. Then it kept me up half the night thinking about where this was going to lead to next. I look forward to the next book in these series and can’t want to see what other naughty things JEM brings us.
