Just One of the Royals
Star hockey player Daniel Sacachelli wants only two things: 1) for the Falcons to win next season, and 2) for his secret — the fact he’s actually the prince of Eldonia — to never make its way to Chicago. But if Daniel keeps avoiding his crown, their family will lose their kingdom forever.
Madison Myong can’t believe that her will-they-or-won’t-they best friend Daniel is rea...more

Just One of the Royals is the second book of The Chicago Falcon's series. In it, you will meet Daniel who is a hockey player for the Falcons. His best friend, Madison, who just happens to be in love with him. Of course this is kind of like any kind of hallmark or lifetime movie.. but it was a cute and quick read.
They form a fake relationship and it turns into something real. Then he's a prince in disguise and vavoom - love is in the air. Now when I dove into this bo ...more
I had adored Madison in the last book, because she was such a fantastic friend to Al, and I was happy that she was getting her own romance. I was also excited to see she was getting paired up with the resident bad boy, Daniel. They had a really close friendship in the previous book, but I wasn't sure if the att ...more
Just One of the Royals is the second book in a series about members of a junior hockey team. I haven’t read the first book in the series yet (from what I gather it sounds very similar to the move She’s the Man, but with hockey instead of soccer), but found this could be read easily as a standalone.
I really liked the friendships in the book. The guys on the hockey team, plus Madison (the trainer) were all pretty close an ...more
- Ice hockey player
- Guy is secretly a prince and needs to learn how to be more royal (Princess Diaries vibes)
- Friendship to romance trope
Yeah, I need in on this.
I was very excited when I first heard about Just One of the Royals. It's very surprising, but I love a good hockey story. And if you add in some royalty to it? HUGE BONUS!! I quickly started it when I got it and was very pleased that it met my expectations.
Just One of the Royals is the second book to The Chicago Falcon's series by Leah and Kate Rooper. They could al ...more
The concept was good.
But there was literally no character development – how old are they? Their dialogue was so juvenile, I was honestly thinking they were young teens (except when they said Eva was 16, that is the only part which gave me indication with how old they all were) but even then, yes, the dialogue made them sound like they were very young. And sure, you call them junior hockey team – is that junior in university? No, it couldn't be, because Madison wants to go to Julliard ...more
Daniel is secretly a prince and now his father, the king of Eldonia, died, his sister shows up asking him to take over the throne or else she'll have to marry against her will thanks to some very old law. But Daniel knows his popularity isn't that high, so he gets the help of his secret-crush Madison, who suggests pretending they're a thing so he can show commitment.
I really wanted the actual prince trope. I ...more
It was interesting to read about the thoughts of a secret prince and the other POV from Madison. They were similar to each other as they were both hesita ...more
One of my favorite things about this book was the focus on friendships! All the characters had such strong dynamics with everyone around them, and it warmed my heart so much! The authors were great at creating believable and fun friendships between everyone.
The romance in this book was very sweet and adorable! The romance was supposed to be the trope of a fake relationship to something more, which is one of ...more
I wanted to love this I really did. It has everyhing I'm looking for in a fluffy contemporary, but this just fell incredibly flat to me. I thought the plot moved fast, with little to no set up and the characters were one dimensional. The dialogue was rough and felt really juvenille. The whole story was just a miss for me. Can't win them all.
I received a copy of the book from Entangled Teen via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
A special thank you goes out to Entangled Teen for allowing me to read an eARC of this book early. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
Gosh, this story was so damn cute. I was smiling like an idiot almost the entire time I read the book. I seriously just love cute romance stories like these. It was just what I needed after a rough couple of months.
The tension in this story was so real, it was driving me mad. Daniel and Madison clearly had chemistry but both were just igno ...more
I like Daniel. He is a Junior League hockey player. He loves his half-sister, Evangeline Harwell. He would do anything for her ...more
This book was a quick, lovely, and entertaining friends to lovers story with plenty of sweet, heartwarming and laugh out loud moments. It was enjoyable from beginning to end and I cannot wait to read the other books in the series.
Just One of the Royals by Leah and Kate Rooper is pretty much Princess Diaries, but instead of an awkward and shy teenage girl turned princess, we have an adorable and charming star hockey player w ...more
Just one of the Royals is book two in the Chicago Falcon series by sisters Leah and Kate Rooper. I LOVED the first book Just one of the Boys, but unfortunately the second book was a huge miss for me. I think part of the problem was that I wanted this book to be more about hockey and less The Princess Diaries 2: Royal Engagement. Seriously, the plot of this book seemed eerily familiar to The Princess Diaries movies (not the bo ...more
When Daniel's secret is revealed, that he is the bastard prince of Eldonia he needs ...more
This book was super cute! It immediately reminded me of The Prince and Me or even The Princess Diaries and even though contemporary romance isn't my usual read I knew that I had to give this one a try - and I'm glad that I did; I enjoyed it.
Just One Of The Royals is actually the second in a series that seems to be centred around the budding romances of a team of hockey players however you ca ...more
This book and I didn't agree, but I was able to pull through and finish it. The thing is, 15% into the book I knew how it would end. Like, I've pretty much read this plot line before in both YA and adult romance books, so all the steps were pretty obvious... unfortunately. Someone new to romance might not know these steps, though, so it might be a good read for them. But for Madison, our main character who claims ...more
Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book and chose to review it. This in no way impacts my opinion.
There were some cute moments to this, and I'm a sucker for ballrooms and fake relationships, but the writing in this was choppy and a little sloppy. I would have liked a bit more editing for flow and style but otherwise it was an enjoyable late night read! ...more
