His True Queen (The Smoke & Mirrors Duology Book 2) Kindle Edition
A beautiful, defiant princess. A renowned, sinfully gorgeous Hollywood actor.
A love affair that is sure to rock the British Monarchy…and the world.
Their love affair began intensely and passionately. Princess Adeline and Josh Jameson knew any future together was impossible—her status as a princess and his standing as a Hollywood heartthrob dictated that. But the heights of pleasure they could take each other to were wildly unanticipated by them both. Josh’s absolute disregard for Adeline’s status quickly drew her into his hedonistic world. And her perfectly worn mask and false façade captivated Josh to the point of obsession. The boundaries became blurred. The physical became emotional. Their hearts became entwined.
But a cruel turn of events rips their worlds apart and Adeline is more bound than ever by the protocol and expectations her title commands. The army of royal advisors who guard the secrets and scandals of the Monarchy will go to unthinkable lengths to keep the smoke and mirrors in place…and Josh away from Adeline. She knows the power she possesses comes with agonizing sacrifices. Walking away from Josh devastates her…but it keeps him safe from the corrupt institution that has ruled her life.
Yet Josh refuses to lose the woman who has consumed him so completely, distorted his boundaries, and stripped him of all sensibility.
Will the power of the British Monarchy triumph? Or will their fierce love for each other change the course of history?

About the Author
Jodi Ellen Malpas was born and raised in the Midlands town of Northampton, England, where she lives with her family. Working for the family construction business full time and with the prospect of taking it over once her father retired, she tried to ignore the lingering idea of writing a novel until it became impossible. She finally found the time and courage to release her creative streak and in October 2012 self-published This Man as an e-book. She took a chance on a story with some intense characters, notably Mr. Jesse Ward, the Lord of the Manor, and sparked incredible reactions from women all over the world. Two months later, Jodi made the decision to give up her day job to concentrate on her new and very unexpected career in writing.--This text refers to the audioCD edition.

As always JEM has once again given us a super delicious alpha male to dream over in the shape of Josh Jameson... the potty mouthed Hollywood actor, the sexual tension between Josh and Adeline was palpable, smoking hot and kindle melting worthy. It was a beautiful romantic story. One that will turn your insides gooey. My only criticism was that I felt it was drawn out, I think about 30% of the book could have been edited out without affecting the story or plot. The first half I didn’t feel progressed at all only and was only there to emphasise the sneaking around that’s josh and Adeline had to go through to be together.

Anyway, I digress... So, like I said in my review for TCP, the storyline really reminds me of The Royals TV show, however, I actually found it to be so much better. There is something so unique about this story, and it's not the whole Royal X Hollywood romance crossover, I actually found the characters rather unique. I found their chemistry and bond so organic and natural from the off and I liked that they weren't your generic love will conquer all, fuddy duddy protagonists. They are very real and raw. They have a lot on their plates and I liked that at no point it felt like there was an obvious and easy decision they could make to fix their predicament. I loved the angst that arose from their hurdles. I think it gave the story edge and it made it really difficult to put down, and not to mention all the twists and turns. Yes, I have to say that I sort of saw it coming, but even when it happened I was so close to throwing my kindle. I mean, it was all going so well and then it all fell apart and it was devastating. So freaking devastating, I'm still reeling from it.
If you know me, you'll know that I am a massive Jodi fan and with this duet...duology (I say potato, you say potahtoe...) I have to admit that she has outdone my every expectation. There's this slight nod to kink, but it's very minor and I actually found myself not questioning it as much in this book. In the first book I thought that the spankings were going to become something more, that it would be tied in to some big heart-wrenching ghost of Josh's past...it isn't. I mean, it's just one of the things they enjoy, and quite frankly, good on them. I'd let Mr. Jameson spank me anytime. (I feel like that's TMI, but oh well!) If I'm honest, I actually think that it not being anything other than sexy fun kept the story fresh. You know, the whole guy needs kink to cope with his past trope has been done way, way too much and I'm just so flipping glad that Ms. Malpas stayed clear of it!
I don't think there was anything I struggled with. There wasn't anything I could pick at, and there certainly wasn't anything that made me cringe or feel like the story was try hard. Even when the lines got a little cheesy or porno-ish. I just lapped this baby up like a camel at an oasis in the middle of a dry desert. Something I never thought I'd say.
Again, as I mentioned in my TCP review, I found these characters impossible not to love. Apart from his dirty mouth and his swoon factor, Josh is a romance readers dream hero. I liked that although he didn't always make the right decision, or say the right thing that he always had Adeline's best interest at heart. I liked that he was willing to do what it took for her to succeed in whatever she chose. I think that the way he acts and reacts to their situation (as fairytale-y as it is) it is very real. Maybe it's because of the whole Harry-Meghan thing, but I actually feel that it's because of the story and the characters themselves. They are characters that you feel like you are one with. Adeline, oh my...this woman. She's so vulnerable and soft, but yet, she has this strength that is soldered to every single rung of her backbone. I loved that she wasn't scared of ruffling feathers. I loved that she went out of her way to do the best for the people around her. I loved that she wasn't selfish, or self-absorbed. She had the power, she wasn't afraid to use it and for the most part she stuck to her guns whilst doing the best for everyone.
All in all, this is a story that I will be coming back to time and again. It's a story that I can see myself fawning over every single read. This is a Royal romance that will be very freaking hard to beat!
A fantastic continuation of the story of Josh and Adeline. There are some twists in the story that could have finished their relationship completely.
Jodi has a way of writing that keeps you hooked. The alpha male (Josh) is strong and protective whilst being loving and sexy at the same time.
Adeline his queen shows just how suited to the roll she is, when she takes control of her own future.
There are many who don't want them to be together but true determination and a few shocks along the way lead to them living their lives how they want to,not being ruled by others.
This book is suitable for people looking for a romantic,sexy read with a great story.
Well done Jodi. Another fantastic read. I can't wait for the next book xx
