Oh. My. God. I couldn't have loved this book more.
It was sweet, it was romantic, it made me cry, it made me hopeful, it made me bitter that there weren't books like this when I was growing up, but it made me so happy there are books like this now for those who need it.
Alex Claremont-Diaz is the First Son of the United States. His mother is finishing her first term as president and is gearing up for a bruising re-election fight, and his father is a congressman from California. Alex is quite a ce
I RECEIVED AN ARC OF THIS BOOK, I AM IN TEARS. This is basically a wholesome enemies-to-friends-to-lovers-tale featuring wholesome friendships and sibling relationships, and a whole lot of swoon-worthy scenes, witty banter, and … well, some things are best kept a surprise. ;)

I need to have this in my life! Immediately!!! Why do I have to wait so long? T_T
The 2019 releases will be the death of me! XD
P.S: It sounds gay but hey, maybe there'll be a decent bi representation?! I guess I'll just have to find out once I read it. ;-)
Following an international incident at a royal wedding, Alex, The First Son of the United States, and Henry, Prince of Wales, are forced to pretend to be best friends to avoid an international scandal. Which wouldn’t be a problem, except Alex has despised Henry since an unfortunate inciden ...more
Because you’re it, okay? I’m never gonna love anybody in the world like I love you.
I am astounded and scandalized, because how dare this book be so ADORABLE? Are things allowed to be this sappy and romantic? Is this government tested and approved???????? I feel personally liberated into the world of extremely adorable gay monogamy and I’m never leaving, I identify with this level of wholesome DEEPLY c: c: c: c:

Sometimes, you read a book you've been anticipating for so long and it just lets you down, whether because your expectations are too high or otherwise. Other times, the book exceeds your expe ...more
From Alex, the hotheaded, heart-of-gold BISEXUAL (!!!) protagonist to Henry, his enemy-to-friend-to-lover with hidden depths and love as big as the ocean to June and Nora, the DREAM TEAM LADIES in Alex's life to A WOMAN PRESIDENT, the characters draw you in and ...more
(And it has the most incredible epistolary sections I've yet read in a contemporary novel. As soon as I hit them, I was doomed.)
I love EVERYTHING about this book. The writing is super fresh and the dialogue very current. The alternate reality created is hopeful and brought my woe-is-me-politics-is-a-dumpster-fire self out of the doldrums. I swooned and laughed and swooned and gasped and swooned and gawwww'd...it really was a wonderfully charming read. Also, every single character was special in their own way and I loved them all, not one was a throwaway and I'm all about that.
If anything, I thought the end was ...more
Way to up the fucking game. All other Romantic Comedies out there have got some pretty tough competition, because between this and How to Repair a Mechanical Heart by J.C LIllis the bar is set to the sky. Like, wow. Wow. Wow. Wow. Talk about a home run.
This book has everything. Political Scandal. Intrigue. Sarcastic disasters around every corner. And an absolutely marvelous romance between two absolute doofus ...more
I mean, there are things I could nitpick, but who flipping cares when my heart is a gooshy puddle on the floor. First of all, it's got this beautifully executed love story where you feel all the yearning crushiness of their attraction, you feel their longing to be together, you feel every moment of them falling in a deep, love-of-the-ages kind ...more
first, i wanna say the AUDACITY (and sheer GLEE) to write political fanfic in a real book and watch all the I WISH THIS HAD HAPPENED in 2016 general elections and have at its center this super lovely gay relationship and i really did almost cry in the chilly, cold dark of 5am.
the romance was fucking ACE and like....there are moments where im like 'you cannot escape the problem of the monarchy' ...more
I think I just sprained something—that's how intense my heart just throbbed and my internal squeal was.
Have you heard all the hype surrounding this book? A Prince and the first son are in a secret relationship and it’s giving everyone life. Well, you damn well better believe all that hype because this was the cutest thing ever.
Prince Henry and the First Son, Alex have a very mutual hatred towards one another and it’s definitely not a secret. They can’t even be in th ...more
THAT WAS GLORIOUS
how is it only January and I've already read the best book of 2019??
ALSO someone needs to make this a movie because it would be perfect as one 😭
Thank you to St Martin's Press for providing me with a review copy. RTC soon.
