Millie Quint is devastated when she discovers that her sort-of-best friend/sort-of-girlfriend has been kissing someone else. And because Millie cannot stand the thought of confronting her ex every day, she decides to apply for scholarships to boarding schools . . . the farther from Houston the better.
Millie can’t believe her luck when she’s accepted into one of the world’s most exclusive schools, located in the rolling highlands of Scotland. Everything about Scotland is different: the country is misty and green; the school is gorgeous, and the students think Americans are cute.
The only problem: Mille’s roommate Flora is a total princess.
She’s also an actual princess. Of Scotland.
At first, the girls can barely stand each other–Flora is both high-class and high-key–but before Millie knows it, she has another sort-of-best-friend/sort-of-girlfriend. Even though Princess Flora could be a new chapter in her love life, Millie knows the chances of happily ever afters are slim . . . after all, real life isn’t a fairy tale . . . or is it?
I have three things to say about this book and that’s it. Roommates to lovers, royal romance, boarding school. These are all things that make me love a story on their own and Her Royal Highness had all of them in one book.
I had so much fun reading this. It was fast paced and funny. I managed to read it in one sitting. Millie was so funny to see so out of her element. She gains confidence and courage to stand up for herself and handle awkward or uncomfortable situations. I loved her bravery to move to another country for an incredible opportunity.
Flora was great. I liked getting to know her more after seeing her in Prince Charming. She’s basically a cooked marshmallow. A little hard on the outside, but inside just soft and mushy. She pushed Millie and their banter was probably my favorite thing about this book.
Overall, I had a really fun time reading this and I can’t wait to see what other characters get their own books from Rachel Hawkins. If you’re looking for a fun summer romance, this is the book for you.
Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
