(3)The Royal We by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan


While growing up in Iowa Rebecca Porter and her twin sister, Lacey, had a fascination with the England and the royal family.  But, it is only Becca that takes the plunge and heads off to Oxford for college.  She has just arrived when a handsome fella holds the door for her and helps her with her luggage,  Unbeknownst to Bex, the helpful fella is Prince Nicholas, the future King, and he lives just down the hall.  Bex falls into an easy friendship with Nicholas and his friends.   Nicholas is trying everything possible to have a "normal" experience at college and Bex is part of that, they do typical college kid things like hit the clubs and binge watch bad television.  Without even realizing it, they fall in love.  Nicholas wants to keep Bex from the same spotlight that destroyed his mother, so they keep their relationship from the public and his family.  Well, except for his imp of a brother, Freddie.   After years of quietly dating the Prince is marrying his darling American.   But the stress and pressure of becoming a member of the royal family is getting to Bex and she made some mistakes that are now coming back to haunt her the night before their wedding.  Will those mistakes ruin her relationship with Nick and prevent them from getting married?

The Royal We is a modern day fairy tale.  The parallels between that "other" Royal couple and Nick/Bex is quite thinly veiled.  And the similarities that were there was enough to make me wonder if some of the more scandalous parts of the book were also based loosely on Wills and his bride. It also made me wonder if the authors got any push-back from the Throne.  It made it really fun to read and speculate.  The whole book was really perfection. From Rebecca's father and the Coucherator to that cad, Clive. Oh and Bee and Gemma!  Ohmygosh!  The Prince's handlers, Marge & Barnes were quite entertaining as well.  I do not doubt for a second that there are real counterparts working for the Royal family.  In The Royal We Nick and Freddie's mother was also out of the picture, but in a different way.   And Freddie, the similarities between Freddie and another ginger-haired younger brother are quite startling.  He couldn't have been anymore fun than what I imagine Prince Harry to be  himself.

Bottom line - The Royal We was one of the most fun and entertaining books I have read in quite sometime.   What girl hasn't dreamed of being of falling in love with a Prince?  Our daydreams are brought to life through Bex and Nicholas.  Who can resist a fairy tale?

I have been tangled in a web of books for many, many years. I created this blog before Goodreads was around to keep track of the books I have read. Since it's inception I have reviewed almost 1,000 books.
