    A realistic fairy tale!

    I've always loved reading about women who've captured the interest of unusual men. There's nothing more out of the ordinary than the love story of someone who is the heir to a monarchy; they deal with a host of great burdens. Yet, they're still human and prone to all the foibles that come with that condition regardless of whose blood is flowing in their veins. The Royal We caught my attention for that very reason. I thought it'd be a funny and romantic tale, but it turned out to be thoughtful and insightful as well. Bex Porter wasn't looking to land a prince, but she was looking for an adventure all her own when she left her twin and home behind for England. She was a wonderful character. She was down to Earth, friendly, funny, and a tomboy. She wasn't big on celebrities or fashion, but she was kind and caring. She was loyal to her friends and occasionally made mistakes, which we all do. I loved her first meeting with Prince Nicholas. It was irreverent and funny, especially since she didn't know who he was. Prince Nicholas or Nick as he was known to his friends, was an interesting character. I liked him for the most part. There were moments when I wished he would have behaved differently, but then again Bex made some mistakes that ended up being costly as well, so I couldn't fault him too much. I think the fact this story was told from Bex's point of view made me much more sympathetic to her. Nick was able to retain most of his air of mystery. I really liked how the book was laid out. When I first started reading I was a little worried about how Bex was going to handle whatever it was that was causing her such fear and panic. I immediately started guessing, but when I turned the page and Bex started from the beginning, I relaxed and settled in for the story. The tale might be fictional, but it has a realistic feel to it. It wasn't just the highs Bex faced, but the lows as well. I don't know if I'd be able to handle the pressure she felt from all sides, not just the royal family, but the press, and populace too. Bex also had to let go of great parts of what made her who she was and also the person Nick fell for, in order to be with him. That's a huge sacrifice and I liked that she didn't take it lightly. The book was funny, romantic, sad, and just plain entertaining. You had characters like Lacey, Bex's sister who I sometimes wanted to hug and/or strangle. Freddie, Nick's brother was a surprise. He might have been seen by the public and his family as a devil-may-care lothario, but he really surprised me with his hidden depths. And I loved Bex and Lacey's parents. Those two were not only a wonderful couple, but the love and support they gave their children was immense. I admired them for that. Then you people like Richard, Nick and Freddie's father, and as much as I wanted him to be evil, and he could be, he had a side to him that was unexpected as well. All of the characters were well developed and complex. You never knew how they were going to surprise you. Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan have done a fantastic job at writing this story. It felt like I was reading a fairytale, which I love, but with all the ugly bits that are usually hidden or glossed over. There was none of that, and for that reason, The Royal We really stands out. I do hope the ladies aren't done writing about Nick and Bex yet, or if they are, perhaps they might move their attentions to Freddie, and if that's not on the cards, I can't wait to see what and who they write about next.

    Loved it!

    Believable yet different. Makes one think bout how the royals really keep it together. Wouldn't want to be them. Enjoyable read.

    For American YA readers

    Writing style changes throughout book. Not in any way original. Closely follows actual royals history. Boring and immature.

    An utter delight from start to finish.

    If there was such a thing as literary crack, this book is it. I was delightedly addicted from page one, and when I was forced to put the book down, I couldn't wait to return to the world of Bex and Nick. Yes, this is a formulaic love story, but who cares when it's written so well? I laughed, smiled, and fell in love with The Royal We; if you enjoy perfectly witty and sweet love stories, you must read this one. PS. When I found out yesterday that Lauren Graham (!) and Mae Whitman (!) are adapting this book for the screen, I nearly just effing died. CAN'T. WAIT. :D

    Royal Fans Delight

    Young or young at heart royal followers will delight in this creative fictionalization of Kate and Wills' courtship--I could not put it down until I read it cover to cover, and this was my second time through! Humour and heartache humanize the characters. ENJOY!
