I love romance novels, and Red, White & Royal Blue offered me the awesome opportunity to read my first gay romance. I’m so happy to have made this particular book my initiation. It was fun, well-written, and moving. The love scenes were steamy, and the scenario of a female President of the United States was dreamy. Overall, it was a universe I would love to live in, especially given what we’re currently dealing with in 2020.
Alex is the 21-year-old son of the aforementioned POTUS and an aspiring politician. Henry is the 23-year-old Prince of Wales and “spare to the heir.” Both are in the public eye and have an abundant amount of pressure to live up to a certain standard. Oh, and they are sworn enemies. When a physical altercation breaks out between Alex and Henry at the wedding of Henry’s older brother, Philip, their respective public relations teams decide to stage a ‘bromance’ to ensure international relations remain intact. Henry and Alex are assigned to hang out at public events and the public buys the ‘bromance’… until rumors of a possible romance grow louder. Hint, hint – The rumors are true! Henry and Alex must decide to keep their love under wraps or make history with an announcement that may or may not rock the world.
This is one book that should most certainly be judged by it’s gorgeous pink cover. I’d like to nominate Red, White & Royal Blue for a movie adaptation. Hollywood, when it’s safe once more, let’s make it happen!
