The Swedish Prince Reviews
A light hearted, yet emotional royal romance that was sweet, sexy, and kept a huge smile on my face! Karina Halle does contemporary romance so well. I adored this book!
Maggie was a student in NYC, living her dream, until her entire life got turned upside down. Now she is back home in small town California raising her 5 (yes, I said 5) siblings. She works hard and is focused on them. Maggie never dreamed in a million years she would meet a Prince, or be swept off her feet, but here sh ...more
The Swedish Prince is a endearing, refreshing, and completely a captivating standalone that I just adored.
How can you not love a Royal Prince, from Sweden of all places? How can you not fall in love with a girl giving up her dreams to take care of her five siblings when tragedy strikes? This story is about two lost souls, one who has everything he wants, except love, and the other one that has nothing but the love of her siblings. They meet under chance settings and things build when Maggie dec ...more

I love Karina Halle's books/writing, and I always trust her to deliver a great story with fun characters. The Swedish Prince started out really good, I was in particular kind of obsessed with the HOT Swedish Prince Viktor. He was a very nice and understanding persona and I liked him right away. Maggie, has been dealt a bad hand, but she tries to make it work with what she has. She left everything behind and goes back to her home town to t ...more
This might be the most painful review I've written because I absolutely adore this author, I adore EVERY book I've read from her, and I know how much she loved writing The Swedish Prince. I can rattle off a dozen Karina Halle titles that are some of my absolute FAVORITE books ever, so it pains me to say that I just couldn't find a connection with this one. I searched and dug for that emotional chord that typically comes so easily when I read Halle's work, but it evaded me this time. It pains me ...more
I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this. There are aspects I really enjoyed and I was loving it at first, but I think it may have been a tad too long. The second half was dragging a lot for me and I just wasn't loving it as much as I was at the start.
The Swedish Prince is meant to be a reverse retelling of the classic film Roman Holiday, which I have not seen. In short, our main character Maggie is raising her siblings and struggles to get by financially. Viktor is the Crown Prince of Sweden ...more
“Always more, never less.”
So, this is a typical prince-trying-to-find-himself who runs into a young woman-who's-just-trying-to-make-ends-meet story but you know when you read a Karina Halle story that there no such thing as "typical".
However, I did have my reservations...as in been there, read that but Karina Halle surprised me. I don't know why since I've read and loved most of her books. And I always feel like she manages to put a pinch of Dex 2.0 in every hero...and I love that!

Do you love fairytales? Dashing princes? Heroines who are worthy of a crown? Then, The Swedish Prince is for you! It is romantic, HOT, and absolutely happily-ever-after perfection!
Viktor. Viktor. Viktor. Man, oh man, do I have the biggest crush on this prince. Charming, sweet, captivating, and dominating in the bedroom, this man had me swooning HARD, like fall to the floor, death by swooning. As with any good character, he is more than the stan ...more
4.5 “Always more, never less” stars
When I saw that Karina Halle was basing her latest book on one of my all-time fave classic movies, Roman Holiday, I was sold. When she announced Armie Hamer as her muse, I was hooked.
Karina has delivered a sweet, sexy and beautifully romantic story. A handsome Prince with a broken heart, a girl struggling to keep her head above water while caring for her five younger siblings, and a royal fairytale about finding love where and when you least expect it. I loved ...more
