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.

Meet Jodi:
Jodi Ellen Malpas wrote her debut series, The This Man Trilogy, in secret, worried about what people might think if they knew what her imagination was capable of. She was shocked herself. But she finally found the courage to unleash her creative streak and self-published THIS MAN – the first book of the This Man Trilogy – in October 2012. She took a chance on the story with a hero who soon became one of modern day fictions most prolific alpha male characters. Jesse Ward – also affectionately known as The Lord of The Manor, sparked incredible reactions from women across the globe and catapulted Jodi into the world of women’s fiction.

Jodi went on to self-publish the second book in the trilogy, Beneath This Man in Jan 2013, just before Grand Central Publishing, part of the Hachette Book Group, picked up the popular trilogy and the unknown Jodi. The third book of the trilogy, This Man Confessed, took Jodi to the top of the bestsellers lists, earning her the proud title of #1 New York Times Bestselling Author. This Man has since been voted one of the top romance novels of all time.

With so much love, enthusiasm and a thirst for her words from her readers, Jodi suddenly wasn’t afraid of her imagination anymore. She went on to write The One Night Trilogy with the delectable and mysterious Miller Hart, and stole the hearts of her readers once again. Her first stand-alone novel, THE PROTECTOR,  released in September 2016 and has since been nominated for a Reviewers’ Choice Best Book Award. Jodi’s next stand-alone novel. THE FORBIDDEN, is set for release in August 2017.

All seven of her published novels have hit the New York Times best sellers list – as well as the Sunday Times list and various international best seller lists. Her work is now published in over 24 languages across the world.

Jodi was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her two boys and a beagle. She is a self-professed daydreamer, a mojito addict, is famous for her obsession with Converse, and has a terrible weak spot for Alpha Males. Writing powerful love stories and creating addictive characters has become her passion – a passion she now shares with her devoted readers

The Controversial Princess is a spectacular, breathtaking read!
I was so very lucky to get the chance to early read this book, and OMG I feel so absolutely privileged to have been given the chance and here I will tell you why. This book was written with such a strikingly different formula to what we would normally expect from Jodi and it just astonished me so much that she could write such a book as this, that she could so easily ambush me emotionally with her words, that she could pick me up on a high, spin me around and then suddenly rip my heart out. I was emotionally drained by the end of this book but WOW it really was a fantastic adrenaline rush while reading! 
It just shows how adaptable Jodi as a writer is, that her writing can change and adapt to cover almost every romance trope that there is and no matter what she writes I always know that I won't be disappointed by the quality of the story.
The start of this book tells us about Princess Adeline Lockhart as she is getting herself ready to attend her 30th birthday party and right from the very first paragraph you get the feeling and sense of dread that she is so very unhappy. We get to know that she feels trapped in her life of privilege, and knowing that she has no choice but to attend when it's the last thing that she wants to do. I really felt deeply for Adeline's predicament of the King trying to forced her to marry someone she doesn't want while being in love with someone else. I really got to love her character throughout this book, of her wild escapades and of her planning how to get what she wanted. She is after all just young woman that wants to live a normal life and Jodi wrote her as a strong heroine that I could easily connect with and fully understand why she felt so totally trapped because of who she is. 
Oh my! Josh Jameson is a very bad boy! He is all temptation and hotness wrapped up in a very pretty package. I could so easily have fallen in love with him and I could totally see why a Princess would bow to no one else but him. Jodi wrote him as an not so over the top controlling alpha male but he certainly goes after what he wants and that is where the attraction is for Adeline as he treats her as a normal woman. They had a powerful attraction that could only go one way and that's explode.
Can you tell by now how much I loved this book? Well it had everything that you could want in a romance and it ticked all the boxes for me and more. 
The Heroine is 5/5 (She is one epic lady)
The Hero is 6/5 (HAWT!!!) 
The Setting 5/5 (Loved it)
The Romance 5/5 (Swoon worthy)
The Sex 6/5 (Off the charts)
The Secrets & drama 5/5 (OMG)
This story was certainly a blast to read and I'm really excited that it's not so long to wait (August) for the release of the second and concluding book to this series as there is so many questions and answers I need to know after the epic ending to this book. I really think that this is one of the best books that Jodi has written as it's such a deeply emotional story. 
A brilliant 5 Star read!
