My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Clearly inspired by the recent Royal Wedding, this is a truly delightful Cinderfella style romance with a boy from Dagenham winning the heart of a handsome English Prince.
*Now, the one thing I will say, is that while the author has created a fictional Royal Family ruling over the UK, I did cringe a bit each time I saw a reference to the Queen of England, or Prince of England, as it misses out the rest of the countries which make up our hodgepodge of a nation.
It might be a mouthful to call James a British Prince, but it’d be the accurate way if you’re having a Royal Family and Commonwealth which mirrors the real one.
That’s pretty much my only criticism though. Everything else in this romance is a delight, even the insta love attraction works and the whole meet cute is a really clever scenario.
It’s low angst, relatively steamy and has a great bunch of secondary characters. I live for the day when we actually get a same sex pairing among the crowned heads of Europe 🙂
#ARC kindly received from the author in return for an honest and unbiased review.
*Helen has let me know the England/United Kingdom references have been cleaned up in the final proof 🙂
