Erryn reviews ‘Felix and the Prince’ (Forever Wilde Book 2) by Lucy Lennox. The ebook was published December 30, 2017, 316 pages. A copy was provided in exchange for an honest review.
Why I read this book: I loved the first Wilde book and had to grab the second one.
Things I expect to find at Gadleigh Castle:
– Rare stained glass, the subject of my dissertation.
– Peace and quiet, to finish said dissertation.
– An escape from the paparazzi swarming around my starlet mother’s latest blockbuster release.
Things I don’t expect to find:
– A hidden door leading to a secret room.
– The most gorgeous man I’ve ever set eyes on.
Things I know are expected of me in life:
– That I will one day soon become the King of Liorland.
– I will marry a nice woman who will become queen.
– I will provide heirs to my family’s monarchy.
Reasons that might be difficult
– I’m gay.
– I’m falling in love with Felix Wilde.
– He has no idea I’m royal.
This is a Lucy Lennox romance, so a happy ending is a guarantee.
This is a Lucy Lennox romance, so it is going to be a rough journey for the men.
This is a Lucy Lennox so I should have had tissues close at hand.
Thank you, Starbucks for the napkins.
It was insta-love for me with Felix and Lio (oh, and Gadleigh Castle in Scotland, but that’s another story).
Both Felix and Lio are escaping the real world for different reasons, and their need for solitude is clear. Their meeting is so cute and it sets up their relationship because each doesn’t recognize the other. Each man has found another man who sees his real self. Neither has to put up airs or strive to meet the artificial expectations of others. Felix reflects on being alone, saying ‘no one to touch, no warm body to cling to on a cold night in bed, no one to complain to when things didn’t go your way.’ And who can’t relate to that?
And each man has found the perfect partner for one last fling before returning to the real world and the incredible pressure. Felix is out to his family – loved and embraced by the large Wilde family, especially Doc and Grandpa. When Lio says to Felix, ‘you’re stunningly beautiful. Even in a bright pink hat. Especially in a bright pink hat,’ I knew who gave him the hat. This is the second Wilde book, so it’s nice to see West, Nico, and Pippa again. And this book will be followed by another one, so know we will see more of this raucous clan.
Lio, meanwhile, is closer to his valet than anyone else in the world except his sister Hen. And since he’s about to take on the largest role in his kingdom, staying in the darkest part of the closet isn’t a choice – it’s a necessity.
How does a professor from Texas and a Crown Prince from Europe find happiness?
I recommend you read the book and discover for yourself.
I’m giving Lucy’s book a high rating because she’s written another powerful book about two men falling in love and overcoming the odds. Life is tough enough these days and we all need happy endings.
Finally, I fell in love with glass blowing and history of this art. I enjoy learning about something new and will never look at a glass ornament again without thinking of Felix.
10/10 Points of Gold (100% Recommended) – Compares to 5/5 Stars
Lucy Lennox is finally putting good use to that English Lit degree earned way back in the 1900s.
She enjoys naps, pizza, and procrastinating. She has some snarky kids and is married to someone who is better at math than romance but who makes her laugh every single day and is the best dancer in the history of ever.
She stays up way too late each night reading M/M romance because that stuff is hot.
