This is a clever contemporary romance that is very loosely based on the British royals, Prince William & Kate. In this story, the heir to the British throne is Prince Nick, and the commoner is Bex Porter, an American doing a year at Oxford. She rooms on the same floor as the Prince and is soon dating one of his closest friends. When that doesn’t work out, her friendship with the Prince turns into something more.

In this fairy tale, Bex has an identical twin sister Lacey, and she is the one who wants fame and fortune. But Bex ends up with more than she can handle, hounded by the paparazzi, trying to deal with Prince Nick’s cold asshole of a father, and an even colder grandmother who happens to be Queen.

I learned some stuff like you should always apply your hair extensions gradually, so you don’t go from skanky hair one day to full head of gorgeous locks the next. And if you sew weights into your hem, you’ll never have to worry about a wind blowing up your dress. I learned how the upper crust shops and parties, and how the spare to the heir has his own set of problems.

It’s the characters that shine here, from the Prince, his family and his friends to Bex and her family. This book is filled with lots of dish, lots of dirt and lots of fun. I loved it.
