(I received an ARC of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.)

It's my first time to read this kind of genre and I really appreciate how the author took the challenge to make everything in this book convincing.

Be My Queen is a transgender romantic story. It talks about Lavender who fell in love with Diego despite all the reluctance she felt while being with him. Lavender did not plan to fall for Diego because she didn't want Diego to know she's a trans. She's afraid of whatever reaction she can get from him. But of course, she was not able to dictate her heart and she ended up taking the risk.

This book is actually good, but I found the plot quite simple. I have nothing agains insta-love but the insta-love in this book did not get me. It was too instant, I guess. To the point that it's already unbelievable.

But I admire the concept and I like the way the story gives a refreshing feel. It's a light and easy read and the writing style of the author is not difficult to get into.

I rarely encounter books about transgender romances so this is really something new to me. I am an open-minded person and I support these stories, so keep it up, Miss RayeAnn Carter!
