I just re-read my review for the previous book in this series, Just One of the Boys, and I have to say, I am harboring many of the same thoughts about this book, which is a positive thing.

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 attraction went both ways. The doubt each experienced made me a little nutty, but I did enjoy seeing their friendship evolve, and they ended up being great together.

I was pretty surprised by the royal storyline, but I have to admit, I loved it! I read this book the day of the the royal wedding, so I was already sort of swept up in royal-mania. This just added to the fun. We got to travel to the small, European country of Eldonia, where we attended many events and saw Daniel try to live up to his princely title. Like many "suddenly royal" type stories, Daniel committeed many faux pas, but he also worked really hard to redeem himself, because in the end, it was all for his family.

The family theme was quite strong in this book, and I always like when there is a solid family focus. The interactions between Daniel and his sister were very merry and heartwarming, and we also got to spend a lot of time with Daniel's Falcon family. Bromances can be a most splendid thing, and that was totally the case in Just One of the Royals.

Just One of the Royals also really delivered on what I want in companion novels. Not only did we get to catch up with Al and Hayden, they were featured in this book. It's not the first time, and it won't be the last, that you hear me say how glad I was to see what happened "after". AND, I think the next match will result in lots of fun. The heroine is sassy, while the hero is a little on the shyer side. I know I am excited to see how that one works out.

Overall: It was a lot of fun being back with the Falcons! The Roopers gave us another super cute romance with a fun royal twist.

* ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
