Publisher's Summary

His name is Royal, but he's no prince charming. He's not even a prince - though you could say I loved him once upon a time.
He was my older brother's best friend. Growing up, he sat at our dinner table every Sunday, teased me mercilessly, and pretended I annoyed him. When I was old enough, he took me on my first date.
Royal taught me how to drive. Escorted me to my junior prom. Gave me my first kiss...among other things. He was my first taste of toe-curling, all-consuming, can't-sleep love.
We had our whole lives ahead of us. There was never anyone else for me but him. And then he disappeared. No letter. No explanation. Not even a good-bye.
I've spent the last seven years trying in vain to forget my first love, but just when I think I've finally moved on, guess who's back in town?

Engaging, Suspenseful, But A Tad Predictable!

I enjoyed listening to Royal, and while it was predictable, both the story and narration were engaging, and held my attention.

Told for dual POV's Demi and Royal have know each other since they were young kids. Royal came from a dysfunctional home and was placed in foster care where he was fostered by Demi's family. As they matured from teenagers to young adults, they fell in love, and planned a future together. Then one night without warning Royal vanishes. Demi's father knew what happened to Royal, but refused to tell Demi why Royal left without even saying goodbye. Flash forward seven years, Demi is now engaged to one of the towns most influential men, and Royal has been secretly watching over Demi for years. When Demi's fiancé is in an accident, she finds her life in turmoil, and Royal comes to support Demi. Demi's hesitate to let Royal back in her life, and wants answers on why he left, but before Royal will discuss it, he wants Demi to get to know and trust him again, because what he needs to share is bad.

The narration was great. CJ Bloom and Eric London both delivered a fantastic performance, and made it easy to distinguish between the different characters.

Royal was a good story, and I'm giving it an overall rating of 4 stars. Had the plot, characters and sex scenes been a little more intense, I would have given the story five stars. The story's worth a credit; however, I love using my Kindle Unlimited membership and finding awesome Whispersync deals, and Royal was another one of those awesome finds!
