CORINA’S REVIEW

 

As soon as I read the blurb for Red, White & Royal Blue I couldn’t wait to read it. A First Son falling in love with a Prince – color me intrigued. I love M/M. But what I love even more is an unusual story. Red, White & Royal Blue was certainly that.

The plot was fantastically unique, entertaining, and Alex and Henry were the ultimate adorable couple. It didn’t hurt that the entire cast was diverse, lovable, and engaging. There was so much love and palpable adoration between all of them – I fell easily in love with the entire cast.

If you love any of these tropes, you should really give this novel a try.

✔️Friends to Lovers
✔️Enemies to Lovers
✔️Royals
✔️Diverse
✔️ M/M

All in all the book was ok, but didn’t blown me away. I think I was expecting something different. Less politics more romance. I can’t complain about the writing because it wasn’t bad, and there was more than one scene that made me laugh out loud. And I adored Alex and Henry, and would have loved to read a more comprised novel just about them. Because this book was way too long.

I’m going to be in the minority here, since everyone seems to love this book! But although the plot was right up my alley, the execution wasn’t working for me as much as I hoped for. It was way too long with 432 pages. Also much of the book was about the political background of a presidential campaign and DC politics. And I had a hard time being interested in that part of the story. But I can see how readers might love the in-depth view of a presidential campaign.

But besides that, it was a promising debut novel, with awesome characters, well written prose, and smart dialogues.

I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next.

BLURB

Red, White & Royal Blue - Casey McQuistonVirgin. Sex addict. Daredevil. Alcoholic. Smartass … Jackass. Her five friends are about to be filmed. Reality TV, be prepared.

Rose Calloway thought she had everything under control. At twenty-three, she’s a Princeton graduate, an Academic Bowl champion, a fashion designer and the daughter of a Fortune 500 mogul. But with a sex addict as a sister and roommate, nothing comes easy.

After accepting help from a producer, Rose agrees to have her life filmed for a reality television show. The Hollywood exec is her last chance to revive her struggling fashion line, and boundaries begin to blur as she’s forced to make nice with a man who always has his way.

Twenty-four-year-old Connor Cobalt is a guy who bulldozes weak men. He’s confident, smart-as-hell and lives with his equally ambitious girlfriend, Rose Calloway. Connor has to find a way to protect Rose without ruining the show. Or else the producer will get what Connor has always wanted—Rose’s virginity.

This New Adult Romance can be described as Friends meets The Real World. Expect fist fights, drugs, sex of varying degrees, crude humor and competitive alpha males. Definitely for mature readers audiences only.
