Overall: 5/5 Stars

Setting: 5/5
Writing: 5/5
Plot and Themes: 5/5

Review in a Nutshell: I spent 95% of my time reading this book smiling. I’m sure I terrified some people, but oh god was it worth it. (Side note: The other 5% was happy crying)

Red White and Royal Blue is told in the third person perspective of Alex Diaz-Claremont, the First Son of the United States. When his beef with Prince Henry of Wales gets him in the papers, he must stage a fake friendship with him in order to not jeopardize his mother’s re-election campaign. But Henry isn’t as bad as he thought, and he finds himself trying to hide their newfound relationship from both of their nations. 

“But the truth is, also, simply this: love is indomitable.”
