Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A queer rom-com? With a royal setting? I'm all in. Just throw it at me, I'll go ahead and inhale it and regurgitate praise.
Seriously though. This book was delightful. The grown son of a sitting female President of the US falls madly in love with the single son of the Queen of England. They have to keep it a secret of course due to a myriad of political and traditional reasons. There's a lot of love in this book.
There's no preachiness about how love is love and how everyone should accept you for who you are. It's just a world where who you are is already OK. It's your station in life that's causing the issue, not your sexuality.
What I loved about this book was that the main characters seemed to be unaware that they were falling for each other. So many rom-coms are all about the meet cute or knowing instantly that you were destined for each other. This one starts with the guys being less than friends and builds into something truly lovely.
The only real criticism I would have is that it was too short. Yeah, with this book? I'm that girl.
