Cover image and synopsis from Goodreads:

"I might be Cinderella today, but I dread who they'll think I am tomorrow. I guess it depends on what I do next."

American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it's Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain's future king. And when Bex can't resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.

Dating Nick immerses Bex in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace with him and his charming, troublesome brother, Freddie. But the relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick's sparkling and far more suitable ex-girlfriends, and a royal family whose private life is much thornier and more tragic than anyone on the outside knows. The pressures are almost too much to bear, as Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he's fated to become.

Which is how she gets into trouble.

Now, on the eve of the wedding of the century, Bex is faced with whether everything she's sacrificed for love-her career, her home, her family, maybe even herself-will have been for nothing.

I purchased this book as soon as it came out, and after glowing recommendations from friends, I finally picked it up to read in January.

I took my time reading The Royal We. While I immediately found myself enjoying the book, it took me longer than I usually take to read a book to get through it. I didn’t always feel like picking the book up and getting back into the story. Normally for me that’s a sign that I am not really enjoying a book, but with The Royal We, the more I read, the more I liked and got caught up in the story. I’ve read Go Fug Yourself, the authors’ website, over the years and I really enjoy their humour. I was happy to see that same sense of humour in this book.

Although it took me some time to get into the story, I did ultimately enjoy The Royal We so much. It’s fun, funny, full of swoons, and the kind of book that will have you reading with a smile on your face.

There’s also a film adaptation in the works, which I’m very excited about! This is definitely a recommended read if you’re looking for a fun, romantic book!

    This was definitely a twisty read, but it felt like too many twists just for the sake of being twisty to me!
