My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I’ve knocked a star off for the Americanisms, the Z instead of an S, spelling it whiskey when it’s not Irish, calling it the English throne not the British one.
They’re all minor things and overall don’t spoil what is, in essence, an exceptionally good romance with a decent insight into the British way of life but it’s a pet niggle of mine when authors use a British setting but Americanise it.
The romance itself is excellent, I loved how James and Ben met and, having been a journalist myself for almost 20 years, I totally got the dilemma of getting that big exclusive and then choosing not to write it.
This is a complex and twisting story narrative which weaves itself beautifully into the gradual falling in love which both men try their hardest to fight against.
Now I can’t wait to find out what happens next. Let’s hope it’s not the sticky end many previous “Royal favourites” found themselves in!
