“I’m glad Owen has spoken to the ‘press,’ because there is no way I will. The thought of being contacted by a student reporter for a response is wild, and kind of funny. Me, the topic of a breaking news story? My high school newspaper barely wants to interview me about registering senior citizens to vote, and now I have to face the fact that I may be the talk of the summer program.“
I loved the contemporary romance Truly Madly Royally by Debbie Rigaud. If you like swoony reads with driven characters and a romance that is built on communication rather than misunderstandings, this is the read for you. Read my snapshot review here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.
From the Goodreads Synopsis:
“Fiercely independent and smart, Zora Emerson wants to change the world. She’s excited to be attending a prestigious summer program, even if she feels out of place among her privileged, mostly white classmates. So she’s definitely not expecting to feel a connection to Owen, who’s an actual prince of an island off the coast of England. But Owen is funny, charming…and undeniably cute. Zora can’t ignore the chemistry between them. When Owen invites Zora to be his date at his big brother’s big royal wedding, Zora is suddenly thrust into the spotlight, along with her family and friends. Everyone is talking about her, in real life and online, and while Owen is used to the scrutiny, Zora’s not sure it’s something she can live with. Can she maintain her sense of self while moving between two very different worlds? And can her feelings for Owen survive and thrive in the midst of the crazy? Find out in this charming romantic comedy that’s like The Princess Diaries for a new generation.”
