Synopsis:

“I might be Cinderella today, but I dread who they’ll think I am tomorrow. I guess it depends on what I do next.”

American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it’s Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain’s future king. And when Bex can’t resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.

Dating Nick immerses Bex in ritzy society, dazzling ski trips, and dinners at Kensington Palace with him and his charming, troublesome brother, Freddie. But the relationship also comes with unimaginable baggage: hysterical tabloids, Nick’s sparkling and far more suitable ex-girlfriends, and a royal family whose private life is much thornier and more tragic than anyone on the outside knows. The pressures are almost too much to bear, as Bex struggles to reconcile the man she loves with the monarch he’s fated to become.

Which is how she gets into trouble.

Now, on the eve of the wedding of the century, Bex is faced with whether everything she’s sacrificed for love-her career, her home, her family, maybe even herself-will have been for nothing.

My thoughts:

I first read the first few parts of this book a year or so ago. But I ended up not finishing the whole story. So I gave it another go and make myself finish it no matter what.

 

Nicholas and Bex is your fictional version Prince William and Duchess of Cambridge. I like how their characters gave a different flavor to the story as if you are not reading a retelling at all. All the supporting characters also played major parts for their love story to grow.

Told in Bex’s perspective, it definitely is a fun way on how she describes everything as if we are reading straight from her mind. I like how Bex started telling their love story on the day of their wedding, followed by their history, and ended in the present time.

 

This book is definitely a must read for readers who wants to have their modern royal  tale of their own. *wink*
