I feel like I waited 84 years for this book to come out. I’ve been waiting to read it since the deal was announced and it. did. not. disappoint. I devoured this in a day. RED, WHITE, & ROYAL BLUE by Casey McQuiston is a New Adult romance that follows Alex, the son of the first female president, and Henry, the prince of England. The two are privately sworn enemies, but when a very public fiasco forces them to work together. To save international relations, they fake a friendship for the tabloids. Only that fake friendship quickly turns into a secret relationship that they must hide from the tabloids or risk upending the monarchy and Alex’s mother’s reelection campaign.
This book is rife with millennial humor, and I have not laughed out loud at a book so much in years. The cast of characters is absolutely amazing, easy to fall in love with and keep you on the edge of your seat rooting for them to get their happy ending.
Pick up this book if you like: humor, romance, LGBT reads, NSFW romance, endearing characters, sibling dynamics, turkey-related situational humor, and a breath of fresh air.
