The Royal We

by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

Synopsis:
“I might be Cinderella today, but 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, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it’s Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain’s future king. And when Bex can’t resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.

Dating Nick immerses Bex in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace with him and his charming, troublesome brother, Freddie. But the relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick’s sparkling and far more suitable ex-girlfriends, and a royal family whose private life is much thornier and more tragic than anyone on the outside knows. The pressures are almost too much to bear, as Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he’s fated to become.

Which is how she gets into trouble.

Now, on the eve of the wedding of the century, Bex is faced with whether everything she’s sacrificed for love-her career, her home, her family, maybe even herself-will have been for nothing.

My Review:

Let’s get the negative out of way, shall we? The only thing I didn’t like was the rushed ending. Which I feel happens in more books than I can possibly name. There was so much build up, build up, build up…and… for nothing. The other thing I noticed was the lack of research. There were some pretty big things that stood out to me, but enjoyable nonetheless.

However, I did love this book. It was cute, adorable, and with a touch of fantasy.

Obviously, this is Kate Middleton fan-fiction. But I loved it. The characters weren’t necessarily well developed, but for a fun, light read, what can you expect? Bex and Nick are in love and, honestly, there is not much to them. However, I don’t think you read this book for the detailed and in-depth characters. So if you want characters that go beyond the outer layer, than go read a classic.

From the beginning of the book you will be hooked. The adorability factor is huge and it just keeps you reading and reading and reading. The storyline is awesome and the characters are typical yet you’ll love them anyway.

Overall, do I recommend this book? Yes.

Would I call this amazingly well-written? No.

Did I love it anything? Yes.

Read it. You’ll  love it.
