The royal we - Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan

American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy-tales. Her twin sister Lacey was always the romantic, the one who daydreamed of being a princess. But it's adventure-seeking Bex who goes to Oxford and meets dreamy Nick across the hall - and thus Bex who accidentally finds herself in love with the eventual heir to the British throne. Nick is everything she could have imagined, but Prince Nicholas has unimaginable baggage: grasping friends, a thorny family, hysterical tabloids tracking his every move, and a public that expected its future king to marry a native. On the eve of the most talked-about wedding of the century, Bex reflects on what she's sacrificed for love -- and exactly whose heart she may yet have to break. 


My thoughts:
Kate meets William and finally love conquers everything. Oh wait, I mean Rebecca meets Nicholas and live happily ever after. Yes it was Kate and Will fanfiction. Sure it was fun, but it would have been even better if it had not been so obvious. The cold dad, the are they bastards? The queen. The exes. The playboy mooning younger brother. Kate's sister, oh I mean Bex's sister. Change more things.

Hey I already told the entire story! Bex meets Nick. He is the crown prince of England. She is an American student with a dad who invented this sofa and made them rich. They become friends, they become more. But oh no! The drama of the royal family. Those damn paparazzi! The damn judging public! Would I chose the live she chose? Gods no. Always in the eye of the public. Everyone else dictating what you can do and can't do. People telling you how to dress. No fun!

Anyway you know the story. You know how it will end. Though I must say yes it ended with sort of a question mark. Is another book coming? Cos..something was brewing on the horizon. Something not in the story you all know.

Conclusion:
It was a fun, cute romantic book.

  1. I feel that I get my dose of this royal couple in the media. I would say I am a bit of a royalist, at least when it comes to our modern Norwegian Royal family - great ideals, not a Henry the VIII royalist though ;)

    That being said fan fiction about them might not be my cup of tea. Glad you enjoyed it though, nothing like a fun and charming read. Happy Tuesday, B :)

      It was weird. I would have loved originality instead

  13. Sounds a lot like the show the Royals I blogged about today.

    I had read a great review about this other day but now I think the show is enough for now.

  16. I saw today in a tweet that it was on sale for $9.99 in ebook format. Erm, how much was it BEFORE the sale!?! Ah, no thank you. I can't afford that for an ebook. And sounds like the same sort of story as the movies and other stories.
