Synopsis from Goodreads: A wickedly entertaining and utterly absorbing modern take on the life and marriages of Henry VIII...if he were a twenty-first-century womanizing media mogul rather than the king of England.

Master of the universe Harry Rose is head of the Rose Corporation, number eighteen on the Forbes rich list, and recently married to wife number six. But in 2018, his perfect world is about to come crashing to the ground. His business is in the spotlight--and not in a good way--and his love life is under scrutiny. Because behind a glittering curtain of lavish parties, gorgeous homes, and a media empire is a tale worthy of any tabloid.And Harry has a lot to account for.

My Review: If you are a fan of Tudor stories then this book is definitely worth checking out! It is obvious that a lot of historical research was done and the book was cleverly constructed to mimic history but in our modern times. I loved the idea of this huge cast of characters that many know well and looking at how modernity might have shaped them and changed things. That being said I did have a couple issues with the book. I didn't enjoy Harry as the main narrator, there were far too many POV's so I couldn't really connect with any of them and the book had quite a few slow places that were tough to get through. Overall I did enjoy it though and if it sounds like an interesting read to you then I recommend checking it out.
