His Royal Highness - R.S Grey

''I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek

But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.

It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.

Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.

I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.

I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairytales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end. 

He’s just biding his time.
Making me sweat. 

His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.

And he wants me.''

My Review 

Every time R S Grey releases a new book, it becomes a favourite. She just keeps getting better and better! I adored this book and all of the main characters. Whitney is so likeable and I really felt for her with her family issues. Derek is so cute and Cal was unexpectedly amazing, he had me giggling and grinning! The book is based in a theme park, think Disneyland, and Whitney plays a Princess. This plot was so unique and I couldn’t get enough of it. I loved the behind the scenes of a theme park element, it was unlike anything I had read or thought about before but the writing made it so vivid. 

I love the way R S Grey writes romance, with a little will they, won’t they? And no unnecessary fall out just to extend the plot and create difficulty for no real reason. This book and the writing just does not need it. Whitney and Derek have met previously eight years ago and I usually don’t like that in books but I adored it in this! You get a glimpse into the past and it really sets up the story in the present brilliantly. 

I’m trying to keep this spoiler-free but chapter 18 was one of my favourite parts - I was squealing while reading it and the epilogue was the perfect ending. This book was swoon-worthy and a whole lot of fun! If you love rom-coms, you don’t want to miss this.
