Kelly | 1079 comments A big-hearted romantic comedy in which First Son Alex falls in love with Prince Henry of Wales after an incident of international proportions forces them to pretend to be best friends...

First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations.

The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince. Alex is busy enough handling his mother’s bloodthirsty opponents and his own political ambitions without an uptight royal slowing him down. But beneath Henry’s Prince Charming veneer, there’s a soft-hearted eccentric with a dry sense of humor and more than one ghost haunting him.

As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. And Henry throws everything into question for Alex, an impulsive, charming guy who thought he knew everything: What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?

Clephiro (The Book Coven) (Clephiro) | 1801 comments OMG I finished it, and it was so perfect? Please tell me that there will be a sequel with Nora or his sister?


Clephiro (The Book Coven) (Clephiro) | 1801 comments I actually am addicted to how much I loved this book. Diversity, LGBTQ+ characters, solid writing: It's the whole package!

I loved Henry so much, and the depictions of the royal family were pretty interesting.


Clephiro (The Book Coven) (Clephiro) | 1801 comments Seriously, this is a surprise read for me, and it was fantastic. I can't wait to see what else the author puts out.

Nora's book next, please. I love her and her computer brain. <3

Maddison (MaddisonBruce) | 33358 comments Oh how exciting Nancy! I'm glad! I tend to post a lot of updates too (when I'm not driving that is) and as I'm playing a lot of Candy Crush today, I believe I'll finish this, updates every few %

Maddison (MaddisonBruce) | 33358 comments And I've decided to pause this until next month as it doesn't fit for any of the bonus points.


Karen Barber | 5527 comments Opening chapter did strike me as dull initially - but great timing for the end. Definitely sets up something more interesting.


Karen Barber | 5527 comments Up to ch6. Picked up quickly, and it’s hard not to like the White House Trio.


Karen Barber | 5527 comments Up to ch8. They’re not wasting time...but I’m waiting for something monumentally awful to happen!

Karen Barber | 5527 comments Up to ch9. Could have been awkward, but not as bad as it could have been.


Karen Barber | 5527 comments Up to ch12. Definitely not your expected scenario - but the way they talk about historical relationships is fascinating.


Karen Barber | 5527 comments Up to ch14. Cannot believe I didn’t see that relationship!
