Her Royal Highness by Rachel Hawkins

GoodReads Summary:
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?
Her Royal Highness (Royals, #2)Review:
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.

Prince Charming by Rachel Hawkins

GoodReads Summary:
Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her to join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond.
While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.
Prince Charming (Royals, #1)Review:
After seeing Hailey (Hailey in Bookland) rant and rave about this book and its sequel I couldn’t resist picking it up when I saw it was available via my library. I’m so glad that I did because I absolutely adored this book and I cannot wait to read the next one. This book was exactly what I needed to read. It made me smile and laugh.
I loved the main character, Daisy and the antics that the boys found themselves in were never dull. I think telling the story from the sister of the soon to be princess was such a good idea. She gets all of the drama and attention from the media, but none of the rewards of actually being a royal. Daisy was sassy and snarky and I loved every second of it. I also really liked that she wanted to be the best she could for her sister even though the two rarely got along. I think that was the only thing missing from this, for Ellie and Daisy to have had a nice heart to heart and tried to be better sisters.
I adored the “Royal Wreckers” because they were funny and everything I wanted them to be. I hope they each get their own books and we get to see more of them.
There was flirting and fake dating and royals and hilarity and chaos and I loved every damn page of it. I’m (trying) to wait patiently for the second book to become available from my library because I want to read it as soon as possible.

Keep on reading lovelies, Amanda.
