you hetero bitches have been getting "I'm falling in love with a man whoops turns out he's a prince" stories for YEARS and finally, finally us sapphics got ours.

“...No, what surprises me is the sudden, jolting, and undeniable realization that even I didn’t want to, I’ve fallen for an actual princess.”

THIS WAS SO FREAKIN CUTE. I was pretty much just expecting an easy, fluffy, sweet read about girls in love and THAT IS WHAT I GOT. I loved the boarding school setting and the set-up of the relationship between Flora and Millie. Essentially, they're assigned the same dorm room but instantly don't get along very well.

I can definitely see the criticisms for this book - the writing is probably not my favourite and the end of the book happens in a rush. I didn't mind where it went, but they definitely jumped from "getting together" to "desperately in love" way to quick.

That said, I don't really care because I had such a fun time reading this. I essentially only came here for the enemies-to-friends-to-lovers and there is A LOT of build up and tension in this book so it was great. I also really loved the side characters. But most of all, I loved Flora and Millie together. Their banter was sweet and they complimented eachother well.

For a quick and fluffy read I'd recommend, and if you liked Red, White & Royal Blue you should read it.
