Review: Royal Treatment by Parker Swift

Royal Treatment by Parker Swift (June 11, 2017; Forever Yours eBook; $3.99; Royal Scandal Book 3)

All this duke needs is his duchess…

For five blissful months I've been engaged to Dylan Hale, the most handsome, commanding, and wickedly sexy duke in England. For five months I've woken up next to the man I love, indulged in secret trysts, and submitted to every delicious desire. Even better? We've managed to keep it hidden from everyone. That means no paparazzi scandals, no snide comments from Dylan's mother, and no harsh public scrutiny. It's been heaven, but with Dylan's royal responsibilities looming, our time alone is running out. And while I can't wait to be Dylan's wife, I'm terrified that becoming Dylan's duchess might mean losing myself.

The final installment of Dylan and Lydia’s story starts after 5 months of them becoming engaged and keeping it a secret, now per her request. While it seems the threats have vanished, he’s still working on saving his father’s company and with their schedules, his new duties and her impending work trip to New York their relationship will again be strained to say the least.
As with the previous books, I was not impressed. The story took a turn that didn’t manage to hold my attention and I read to the end more out of sheer stubbornness than actual interest. I wanted to love Dylan, but I felt he was obnoxious at best and even when Lydia managed to find her voice it seemed to be like I was watching an overacted play.
The only things that actually made me feel a little better about the whole series were some of the emotional highlights of the trip to New York and that I thought Emily was a firecracker.
