From Goodreads.com: "Bronte Talbott follows all of the exploits of the British royals. After all, they're the world's most preeminent dysfunctional family. And who is she to judge? Bronte's own search for love isn't going all that well, especially after her smooth-talking Texan boyfriend abruptly leaves her in the dust.
Bronte keeps a lookout for a rebound to help mend her broken heart, and when she meets Max Heyworth, she's certain he's the perfect transition man. But when she discovers he's a duke, she has to decide if she wants to stay with him for the long haul and deal with the opportunities-- and challenges-- of becoming a royal."
My Two Cents:
Oh! This was such a fun book! Sometimes you just want a light, fun read that you don't have to use too much brain power to read. This book was definitely brain candy for me. It's a smart romance with a loveable main character that was so much fun to read about. I absolutely loved Bronte. First off, what a cool name! Second, she is definitely someone that I think would be a lot of fun to hang out with. She's bright. She's funny. Oh, and she has an obsession with the British Royals, which if you've read my blog for any amount of time, you may realize that this is another area where we have a ton in common. Bronte is the kind of girl that I'd love to go out for coffee, tea, or a cocktail with in order to dish on our favorite royals.
I think every woman dreams of being swept off her feet by someone who makes you feel like royalty even if they don't come with a title. After dating Mr. Wrong, Bronte is ready to find Mr. Right, which she quickly thinks she finds in Max, who at first, seems to be a super normal guy with a lovely British accent. Bronte's Max comes with a title, unbeknownst to Bronte. I liked the romance in the book but I didn't always like Max. He seems charming at times but he also seemed sort of stuck in the old ways of royalty sometimes as well. He was really sort of a mixed bag for me.
This book is definitely heavy on the romance factor. It also has some pretty spicy scenes that may make gentler readers blush quite a bit so be warned.
Bottom line: this is a fun, modern day Cinderella story that would be a good choice to read when you are looking for a book to just relax with.
