Royals by Rachel Hawkins, published 2018

  This book was better than expected. I only picked it up because I wanted to read the second book in the series (Her Royal Highness), and I figured reading the first one first seemed like the reasonable thing to do. Expectations were low, I fully expected this book to get 2-3 stars. The blurb made Royals sound really bad but I read this book despite that. I’m so glad I did because this book was amazing; it not only exceeded my low expectations but made me want to reread it.  If I had to find a criticism, the writing style seemed to clash with the main character’s personality. I would like a book told from Miles’s point of view but I think that’s a bit much to ask of this author.  The final verdict is this is a genuinely cute, make-you-feel good romance that I 100% recommend. I’m going to be rereading this book, reading the next one, and I’m giving the full 5 stars.
