Reviewer: Samantha

Summary:

In their first adult novel, authors Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan take on a story of romance and rivalries inspired by today’s most talked-about royal couple: Will and Kate. 

If I’m Cinderella today, I dread who they’ll think I am tomorrow. I guess it depends on what I do next.”

American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy-tales. Her twin sister Lacey was always the romantic, the one who daydreamed of being a princess. But it’s adventure-seeking Bex who goes to Oxford and meets dreamy Nick across the hall – and thus Bex who accidentally finds herself in love with the eventual heir to the British throne. Nick is everything she could have imagined, but Prince Nicholas has unimaginable baggage: grasping friends, a thorny family, hysterical tabloids tracking his every move, and a public that expected its future king to marry a native. On the eve of the most talked-about wedding of the century, Bex reflects on what she’s sacrificed for love — and exactly whose heart she may yet have to break.

Review:

If you follow me on social media, you know that I’m eagerly awaiting the arrival of the “spare heir.” Come on, Kate! Boy or girl? I’m a huge fan of the royals, so when I was asked to review this book, I was jumping up and down with glee. This book is definitely inspired by Will and Kate’s romance, and the royal aspects made me smile, laugh…and think. It was really interesting to think about if possibly anything written in the book could be true. Kate, do you have hair extensions? Pippa, how supportive of a sister were you during the wedding process? Those parts, plus just the regular girl finding her Prince Charming, were so fun to read. My only, only downfall of this book is that I thought it was really long. Some parts just seem stretched out to me and it took me over four days to read this book, which is a really long time for me to complete a book. Still, if you love the Royal Family or even just like them, or you love chick lit, give this one a shot!
