Felix

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. – Love.

Lio

Things I know are expected of me in life: – One day soon I will 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. While it can definitely be read on its own, Felix and the Prince is the second novel in the new Forever Wilde series about the huge Wilde family from Hobie, Texas, whose patriarchs aren’t above a little meddling if that’s what it takes to help their grandkids find true love. Beware: nekkid man parts touch. Let’s just say, Felix gets royally screwed in the very best way.

Review:

OMG! Felix and the Prince totally blew me away! If you read romance, then you probably already love fairytales, and in many ways Felix and the Prince is an adult fairytale with plenty of romance, sweetness and angst to satisfy even the pickiest of readers.

I loved this book! We meet Felix in the first book, Facing West and I was thrilled that the sweet and shy man had his own story. Felix is one of those heroes that you will immediately fall in love with. He’s thoughtful, intelligent, funny and an all-around sexy man. Whew! I understood why Lio became so enamored with him, because I found myself falling for him too!

Lio is a Prince to be remembered. His obligation to be King is strangling the person he longs to be. When he meets Felix, he immediately becomes captivated by Felix’s sweet and sexy ways. Felix treats him like a normal person and for once in his life, Lio finds himself wishing he truly could be honest with his parents and his kingdom about his homosexuality.

I adored these two men and I loved the story they had to tell. Between the friendship and love they share together, Felix and the Prince swept me up into their story and I loved every single moment of it. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series, but this is going to be a hard story to top.

Felix and the Prince is written where it can easily be read as a stand-alone story, but in my opinion, I would read the Forever Wilde books in series order because we meet Felix in the first book and some of the secondary characters in each book play a part in the storyline as well.

The Forever Wilde series in book order are: 

Facing West

Felix and the Prince

Highly Recommended!

Nico:

I left my family and tiny Texas hometown fifteen years ago to escape small-town gossips and to give my mom and sister the chance at a better life. But when a phone call from an attorney back home informs me that my sister passed away, leaving me custody of her newborn baby, I’m shocked out of the steady life I’ve built for myself running a tattoo shop in San Francisco.

The thing is: I don’t do babies. And I don’t do small towns. Or commitment. And I especially don’t do family. My plan is to go back to Hobie just long enough to sign adoption papers, giving my niece the kind of stable, loving family I could never provide.

But the moment I meet my niece in the arms of Weston Wilde, my sister’s best friend and the town’s handsome doctor, my plans begin to change. Because suddenly, I see a different future. One with the very thing I thought I never deserved: a family. If only I can convince West that I’m not the same good-for-nothing kid ready to bolt when things get tough.

Weston:

There’s one thing I know for sure about Nico Salerno: he was a good-for-nothing as a kid and judging by the purple-haired, tattoo’d punk who shows up at his sister’s funeral, he hasn’t changed. There’s no way I’m letting him take custody of my best friend’s baby.

But the more time I spend around him, the more I realize that his rough exterior is just a shell and that beneath all the tattoos is a scared, insecure man searching for a place to belong. And pretty soon I know exactly where he belongs: in my bed and by my side.

The problem is, he abandoned his family once before, how do I know that if we become a family he won’t do it again?

Facing West is the first in the new Forever Wilde series about the huge Wilde family from Hobie, Texas, whose patriarchs aren’t above a little meddling if that’s what it takes to help their grandkids find true love.

Review:

Facing West is the first book I’ve read by Lucy Lennox. I’m always excited to read an author that is new to me, so I was super pumped to read and review this book.

Since Facing West is told in an alternating first person, we get to fully know both heroes. I loved finding out what makes Nico and West tick and enjoyed the story they both had to tell.

There is something special about the way these two men learn to communicate with one another. Although I did think they fell into bed pretty quick, it was still a joy watching these two men become friends and then falling in love with one another.

In my opinion, the best thing about this story was the relationship between these two heroes and the clear love and devotion they had for one another. I read romance because I’m a sucker to a good love story, and Facing West wasn’t just a good romance, it was a great one.

Highly Recommended!
