The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

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.

***** Ani’s Review*****

I’ll start by saying The Royal We was escapism at it’s best. I totally appreciate being a regular citizen now. Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan did a great job developing the characters and infusing life into each individual. Bex played a cool American that slipped right into her role as stereotypical American party girl but one that was also smart, quirky, and had a silly, charming personality. Even if Prince Nick wasn’t The Prince, he would still be every girls’ dream guy: handsome, sweet, fun, and thoughtful.  This nice thing about this story is that the plot was well developed and realistic but more than that, it had a lot of heart as well. If you enjoy, sassy, fun, and anything royal, this book is for you!
