This book is a dream come true for anyone girl who’s dreamed of falling in love with a prince.
Chey is desperate for a job when opportunity, literally, comes knocking at her door. With nothing to lose, she uproots her entire life and heads to the small country of Latvala to become the official photographer of the royal family. Chey is stunned by the beauty of the palace and royal family, especially the flirty Prince Mattias. But nothing is really as it seems. Within days, Chey is attacked in her own room. Is someone jealous of her budding relationship with the prince? Is Sander, the mysterious head of security, hiding information that may keep her safe? Chey needs to figure it out before she ends up dead.
Listen, I’m the kind of girl that reads the last three pages of a book before beginning it. This book still kept me guessing to the very end. The premise is a little sketchy, but once I was a chapter in I totally forgot. The mystery kept me on my toes, and my head was spinning as to which romantic interest I wanted to win out. The most delicious part of this book is the happy ending. Still, I’m not so sure this mystery is really solved. I’m very sure the royal family has a few more secrets up its sleeve, and I can’t wait to read about it in the next installment.
Plot: (3 / 5)
This story is clearly a set up book. The plot moves quickly, but the entire time, I knew it was setting me up for bigger, better (or badder as the case may be) things to come. The story line is a bit unbelievable, but it’s easy to suspend your disbelief and get wrapped up in the royal intrigue.
Writing: (3 / 5)
As I mentioned, there are a few plot holes, but the author makes up for it with witty banter throughout the book. I love how she writes the chemistry between Chey and Sander and Chey and Mattias. Also there’s hella good bitchy sister writing.
Characters: (4 / 5)
The characters are the highlight of the book. Chey is sweet but smart. Sander is super hot, and Prince Dare is quite the mystery. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I love Mattias. If nothing else, read this book to meet these characters.
