About the Book:
After a scandalous secret turns their fairy-tale wedding into a nightmare, Rebecca "Bex" Porter and her husband Prince Nicholas are in self-imposed exile. The public is angry. The Queen is even angrier. And the press is salivating. Cutting themselves off from friends and family, and escaping the world's judgmental eyes, feels like the best way to protect their fragile, all-consuming romance. But when a crisis forces the new Duke and Duchess back to London, the Band-Aid they'd placed over their problems starts to peel at the edges. Now, as old family secrets and new ones threaten to derail her new royal life, Bex has to face the emotional wreckage she and Nick left behind: with the Queen, with the world, and with Nick's brother Freddie, whose sins may not be so easily forgotten -- nor forgiven.
I did not like this book as much as the first one. Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan lost some of the magic that was in book one. Maybe it is because of the fact that the real royal family has been saturating the headlines lately. Now don't get me wrong, I enjoyed this book, there was just nothing earth shattering about it. The writing was okay, but not spectacular. It was a fun read, but not one I would reread many times as I am prone to doing with an amazing book. My biggest problem with this book was the length, almost five hundred pages! If you are looking for a quick and easy read...this is not the book to choose. It was cute and sweet but nothing really swoon worthy or earth shattering. If there is a third book featuring Freddie, as the main character, I will be all in!
Thank you NetGalley, Grand Central Publishing, Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an impartial review; all opinions are my own.
