    1. 5 OH-I-DEFINITELY-LIKE-IT-ROYAL STARS!!!!!!!!!!!Fairy tales weren’t made of common sense and logic—they were leaps of faith.So let's meet Alyx Dagmar. The feisty redhead who lives in her car because she's nearly broke with just waiting tables. As an aspiring actress, she also tries out her luck on auditions whenever possible. But most of the time, luck's just not on her side. Still, she stays determined to make ends meet.But one fine day when she was just sleeping inside her car, a knock kno [...]

    2. A needless but charming story.Meet Alyxandretta Dagmar. Orphan. Broke. Waitress. Aspiring Actress. And yeah, a long lost princess. Enter Daniel Voldakov or should I say, her charming billionaire who has a badass computer software company that is already rockin' in America and Japan but has yet to enter the European scene.What does Daniel need? A blue-blooded fiancée, of course!So what do you say, Alyx? Are you in?With a little convincing from Daniel, Alyx soon wasn't able to resist himerr the r [...]

    3. Heather Long takes every little girl's--and a good number of fully grown females, as well--fairy tale and puts her own twist to it. The result: a beautifully woven love story worthy of any long lost princess's fantasy. What I really like about this book is, everything is right up front. Daniel needs Alyx's royal connections to land the account of the century, and he's willing to pay her to help him get it. Alyx, who is living out of her car in order to save cash for an acting class, is no push o [...]

    4. You would think between a heroine named Alyx and so many of my favourite tropes, I would be all over this book but it was just meh for me. It wasn't bad but I never got into the romance and the characters left me somewhat indifferent.

    5. I have really enjoyed other books by this author and I was totally curious what she would do with modern fairy-tale princess story. This was a cute and enjoyable story about the lost princess living in poverty discovered by her prince. I liked how it wasn't all hearts and rainbows and Alyx Dagmar was a gal easily related to as she went from obscurity to the world's notice. A little My Fair Lady ala Cinderella ala contemporary romance and all good.From the moment self-made billionaire, Daniel Vol [...]

    6. I received this book as an eArc from Netgalley and I really enjoyed it. It was quirky and fun and drew the reader in from the start. It is always great to see a techie meet someone and have him get the girl. This story has a great set up where the techie, Daniel Voldakov, who is a self-made billionaire that needs a bit of help breaking into the market in the EU due to the proclivity of companies over there only selecting vendors where the owner/officers have pedigrees. You're a prince or related [...]

    7. Title: Some Like It RoyalAuthor: Heather LongI really enjoyed reading this book. It was sweet, romantic, had a subject matter that I love (because who doesn’t secretly wish she was a long lost princess?) and most importantly, it was well written and well-paced.The story is based on Princess Alyxandretta Dagmar, an impoverished orphan girl who gets caught up in the schematics of Daniel Voldakov, a self-made billionaire who desperately needs her blue-blooded heritage to break into the European c [...]

    8. Where to start on how much I love this book… It’s a modern day fairytale, including a princess, royal lineage, and a hardworking self-made billionaire who raised himself from nothing to what he is now.The development of the characters relationship was natural and subtle. Though you know from the very beginning that Daniel is attracted to Alyx, he is resistant to giving into those feelings. Alyx is afraid to give any hope to anything that is going on in her life. Because of her past she is re [...]

    9. As a big fan of Heather Long I was thrilled to be given an ARC by the author in exchange for a fair and honest review and was not disappointed. This is a full length contemporary fairy tale. In this modern day Cinderella the prince is a self-made man software billionaire who has lifted himself up and out of the trailer park and onto the international corporate stage. Our Cinderella is an orphaned actress who is living in her car to save up enough to go to an immersion acting class. Our hero find [...]

    10. When an aspiring actress receives an offer to act as a billionaire's fiancé, you would think she would jump at the chance, right?! Not Alyx! Daniel approaches her with his crazy scheme while she is sleeping in her car and she distrusts his sincerity AND his sanity! When he tells her that he has proof that she is really a long-lost European princess, she is convinced he is around the bend, but some persuading from the handsome software guru and some hard evidence of his claimed to her heritage c [...]

    11. Disappointed - I usually love Heather Long's work, but this book just did not engage me. Almost DNF by about 25% through because I just did not care about either character or their silly, angsty reasons for their hooking up. Skimmed the rest of the book to see if it was worth giving it the full read, but the topic and the characters were superficial - I just found it boring and a waste of my valuable reading time. I don't like overly angsty or melodramatic stories, but I like to have enough hear [...]

    12. What fun! Heather Long makes the fairy tale come true in this lovely offering. It was a fast read with a great premise and a really well crafted story. The settings were beautifully detailed. The dialogue was crisp. The characters were easy to relate to, even the nerdy billionaire! I thoroughly enjoyed this quirky, fun romance.I will look for more from Heather Long.*I received my copy from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

    13. sooooo good! Fun, Funny, sexy and sweet! A great start to a new series! Definitely a "can't put it down" book!!

    14. What a wonderful easy-going read. Characters were fun, love the plot theme and the sex wasn't too spicy, but just right. I really enjoyed this one and can't wait for the next in the series.

    15. This was FUN.And many of you should read it because 1) long lost royalty and 2) modern (marriage) engagement of convenience that becomes more. Yes. This was fun.

    16. I absolutely loved this! Virginia Nelson takes a fairy tale, gives it a twist, and then delivers a smooth new take on a classic. True love. Doesn't get much better than this.

    17. Very SatisfyingFirstly, I love Heather Long. I wanted to start a new series of hers, and I waffled about what to choose. I have to say I am beyond happy with my choice. While the plot line might be overdone in the world of romance, HL handled it beautifully. The MCs were real and their connection was solid. Definitely an enjoyable way to pass the time.

    18. 3 stars.Aspiring actress/waitress Alyx Dagmar is homeless and sleeping in her car when she's interrupted by a "blond haired, blue eyed god" who has a proposition for her.If you'll agree to marry me--and by that I mean you don't have to actually marry me, but we have to be engaged--and lend me the use of your royal title, I can make the acquaintance of the Andraste Grand Duke Armand. Once we've cemented that introduction, I could use his influence to open the EU markets for the company.She knew h [...]

    19. Wow, just wow! An intelligently written book about a tried and true trope: The forgotten royal. I love this trope for many reasons and Ms. Long nails every reason why I do. The heroine is smart, sexy and doesn’t have a clue about her heritage at all. The hero isn’t a douche; yes, he has a reason why he wants her to be a true royal but he is honest from the beginning. I know…smart thing that Ms. Long did. Plus, the heroine agrees but makes the hero jump throw hoops in the beginning but too [...]

    20. Some Like It Royal has everything needed to put me right into that feel good frame of mind. I absolutely adored Alyx and her suspicion of Daniel when she first meets him, because really, any heroine that just instantly believes a man who says she’s a long lost princess needs her head examined. The quips exchanged between these two are some of the funniest I’ve read in a long time.Daniel is persistent, and obviously unprepared for how living in close quarters with someone he finds so attracti [...]

    21. A mash-up of "The Princess Diaries" with the millionaire romance. Here's a down-on-her-luck orphan, trying to make it big in Hollywood while sleeping out of her car to make ends meet. Enter a millionaire software mogul who needs an "in" to break into the EU market. His solution is her: Alyx is the heiress to a long-lost royal line that will give him the connections he needs to get in the door overseas. But only if they convince the rest of the world that they're falling in love because Alyx's ro [...]

    23. A contemporary romantic fairy tale with a wonderful happily ever after. I thought the story was fun - and I love the fake relationship trope - and sweet and I adored Daniel. The romance was lovely, I liked that Alyx and Daniel developed a genuine friendship first, a liking and respect for each other before it turned into more.Alyx was a likable character. She's driven, she throws herself whole-heartedly into the task before her, whether it was preparing for an acting job or living up to her end [...]

    24. What every girl dreams of Heather Long writes about in her first book of The Going Royal series. Alyx Dagmar is a forgotten royal clueless of her heritage. A modern Princess Anastasia/My Fair Lady fairytale. Daniel comes to her with an outrageous scheme and despite her reluctance she agrees. Can Alyx pull off the role of a lifetime and convince everyone she’s royal?Daniel found her at last the woman to fulfill his needs; a Royal Princess to seal the deal and she is clueless of her heritage to [...]

    25. i cant put away this book.i really enjoy it soo much i until i missed my train back home!!ok finei thought at first is just another royally-harlequin-romance-sweeping-lost-princess thingybut its more than that. For me some like it royal is one heck of a nerd millionaire and a actress-waitress and how they build a relationship based on a contract and helping each other out to have a good life and businessi like the connection between Daniel and sweet Alyx. telling you shes good and very kind hear [...]

    26. This review can also be found at chiquitablogger.wordpress "But we'll never be royals" - LordeThat song was stuck in my head the entire time I read this book, and it set kind of a cool tone to the story. I admit I was a little bored with all the techy talk about Daniel's business, but I enjoyed the Princess Diaries style lessons, and the ending was super cute!I'd give this book 3.5 stars because while it was cute, it was most definitely fluff. No angst or drama, just happily ever after fluff. An [...]

    27. More reviews at melenasreviewsPast reviews at melenasreviews.wordpress/Some Like It Royal by Heather Long in three words is sweet, touching and quick. I felt there wasn’t enough communication between Daniel and Alyx. I wanted more of them together yet whenever they were it seemed mostly about work. I could tell there was some chemistry between them but seemed blah not enough for me. I was intrigued by the whole princess line and Daniel’s searching everywhere for his princess yet felt there w [...]
