“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.”
I had high expectations for this one. Some of the reviews I read for it were decent. I love reading about British history so an adaptation based off a real-life royal romance was really interesting and a great jump-off point. It had great promise on being a terrific, however, I wish I could say that for this book. It was not bad but it wasn’t great either. It had a lot of promise but it just continued to get wrong at every turn.
