The story continues off about a year after the first one and focuses on Princess Alexandria. Having to deal with the repercussions of what happened at the airport the princess is now suffering from insomnia and nightmares. With no cure in sight they decide that she needs a break and send her off to America. On her first day there she runs into Dr Sheldon Rivers who hates royalty, inherited rich people, brunettes and cheese. Be sure to say that they get off to a bumpy start.
With all the favourite characters back from the first book you can't help but love this new instalment to the series. I can only hope that she continues with this line as it is one of my favourite worlds to hang out in.
By quarter of the way through, it had started to grate on my nerves. I just found the characters SO irritating; they were either 'starchy' or, as with the main royal characters, brash and idiotic. One or two characters with these traits you could pass over, but it was virtually all of them! For me, when I realized I got fed up with the characters, it ruined the rest of the book.

Do you remember that Friends episode about the guys' friend Gandolf coming to visit? They were so stoked, envisioning the best night of their lives. And then he didn't show. Yeah...that's what reading this book was like after reading The Royal Treatment. Such high hopes that weren't realized.
Princess Alexandria has the be the most boring tormented soul I've ever read. Seriously, she could have walked her insomniac butt of an Alaskan pier and I wouldn't have noticed that she was missing. And Shel? Well there is a fine line between romantic conflict and out-right personality disorder.
The Teal/Jenny plot was the most interesting part, in my opinion. But that disappeared quicker than you can say "Um, but you said he was gay."
