Red, White and Royal Blue

Hello all,

So the next book in my challenge 2020, is from the Goodreads winner category; Red, White and Royal Blue.

Dashing Prince Henry, Prince of Wales. The handsome and charismatic FSOTUS (First son of the United States) and son of the first female president of the USA, Alex Claremont-Diaz. Two separate, high profile individuals from across the pond but there’s a catch…Alex has serious beef with Henry.

“He has the personality of a cabbage.”

After a “caketastrophe” at a royal wedding, they both end up in hot water with both of their families. With tabloids talking out a British/US altercation, there’s only one thing for it: stage a truce.

“Someone else’s choice doesn’t change who you are.”

What at first starts out as make believe Instagram posts to appease the public and the tabloids, grows deeper to text messages, phone calls and emails. Then it gets dangerous, maybe they both actually like each other. Maybe a real friendship is on the cards…

“This is it. October 2, 2020, and the whole world watched, and history remembered.”

But that’s not the end of the story. Could Alex find himself falling hopelessly in love with Henry? Does Henry feel the same? This could completely derail his mother’s re-election campaign for presidency. This could destroy the idealistic image of the royal family, an image that an heir to the British Crown and Throne must uphold.

“I’ve been as gay as a maypole since the day I came out of Mum…”

This is a book that raises three questions:

  1. Can love save the world after all?
  2. Where do we find the courage and the power, to be the people we are meant to be?
  3. How can we learn to let our true colours show?

“That’s the choice. I love him, with all that, because of all that. On purpose. I love him on purpose.”

I absolutely loved this book! Gripped from the first page, there was always something happening. It never failed to make me smile either! This is my first LGBT book but it definitely won’t be my last! I can see why it was a goodreads winner, definitely a feel good book!

5 stars and would highly recommend! Check it out on Amazon

Until next time,

Keep reading,
