Red, White & Royal Blue | Casey McQuiston

This is a book about Alex the son of the president of the States. It goes through Alex's struggles with love and his new blooming romance. If you like suspenseful romance and enemies to lovers you would love this book. The point of view in this book is first person told from Alex's perspective. The author uses pronous such as I, me, we, he, him to establish this point of view.

MissYaremcio Nicely done Sam! I will have to add this one to my list! 6/6 1d

Oh my, I can see why this book got so much love! I hardly expected to get tears in my eyes from a fictitious election result in a romance book, but this did it. It starts of light and cute and about a third of the way in gets pretty intense (in a good way). There is a coming out story, political intrigue, royals, and finding oneself, all written in a compelling voice. 5❤️ #romantsy

It really struggled to get going with this book. I honestly thought the falling in love arc was kinda dull and dragged on. However, there was much more interesting plot in the second half of the book so it definitely picked up towards the end.

My best friend bought me this book, and wowee it was a read! I absolutely tore through it! (two books in one week...we're on a roll)

Following the story of Alex and Henry, I couldn't have been more in love with this book. It had me feeling nervous, angry and overjoyed all the time I was reading!

Can we tell Im a sucker for a good romance?

I can see why people enjoyed this book but it fell flat for me. It was clearly written by someone who knows nothing about the UK and has a very shallow or naive understanding on politics

With everything going on right now it felt tone deaf

😩 I couldn‘t do it. I got 75 pages in and bailed at 136. I tried. I really tried for my book group and feel terrible for choosing this one. It has strong language right away, along with steamy sex scenes. I wanted a cute gay romance. That is not what this was. I also found it to be not all that well written. Apparently I am not old enough for this type of book! 🤷‍♀️ I liked the idea, but not the execution. Pan for me. I‘ll stick to Cerulean Sea.

THE FLUFF!!! I paged through their FREAKING emails like a lost lover, longing and longing for something like this. I literally found myself thinking, “I hope to love someone like this one day.” Super easy read, kicks you into their minds right away and the characters were so natural. So beautifully empowering at THAT SCENE where someone opens the curtains. Diverse cast. All the good things.

Why did I let this languish on my shelf for so long. It‘s a cute rom-com with great dialogue and characters you can‘t help but really care about. There‘s just one thing that bothered me which I‘ll put under spoilers in the comments, but mostly I really enjoyed this. (PS Bailey is being a brat so I made her a book prop 😈)

DGRachel There‘s a big scandal that calls to mind the #butheremails scandal that cost Hilary Clinton the 2016 election. A lot of the politics in this book brought to mind the horror of that election and its consequences, which we‘re still living with, so that was hard and took some of the comedy out of this contemporary romance novel. 😭 4mo

This is a really fun escapist read. The plot is really fast paced and full of drama, and the writing is funny, quirky and quite sweet. And I absolutely love that they made Prince Harry gay (they don't actually even change his name). A really enjoyable feel-good romance.

Yup, I liked this one better than the other. As a matter of fact I absolutely loved it. This is the 1st male romance I've ever read and it was so well done. I will definitely have to read more. And I will read whatever this author writes in the future for sure too. I couldn't resist an artsy photo. The cup was made in England, and the saucer in the USA. A little nod to Henry and Alex. #nomnomnom

I loved this so much more than I was expecting! I thought it would be a fun, quirky romance - which it is - but it‘s also so full of tenderness, hope, and touching moments that I actually cried at the end (something that hasn‘t happened in a very long time). It‘s just the best combination of humor and heart that I could imagine. Highly recommend, even if you aren‘t big into romance novels (which I‘m not)! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

It is one of the cutest romance story I have ever read. Alex and Prince Henry just know how to brighten up the day with their lovers banter. It's funny, witty, it will make you fall in love. I laughed, cried and just sighed with the book. It has enough lines to make you blush. It is surprisingly very polished and though it might be a love story, it deals with many other issues that might be generally overlooked.

Enjoyable read for the most part. Loved the female, daughter of a single mother, President of the US, the loving relationship between Alex and Prince Henry, the political intrigue of the election for President, and the power arrangements of the Royals. Did not like the repeated use of the f-word, nor detailed sex scenes. But, that‘s me! 🤷🏼‍♀️
Glad to have read it, and ultimately a feel good read!

July #bookspinbingo list, my oldest and I have been back on the east coast (we live in CA) visiting colleges this week. So it‘s been a little busier than usual, I just spent the last 2 days driving to Clemson. An exciting time & happy to have this time with my oldest as he embarks on this big next step but phew, I‘m ready for some down time before heading back home

This was such a cutesy and fun romance. While it did require some suspension of disbelief to have everything in their relationship work out perfectly especially given their circumstances, it was a really fun read. I loved Alex and Henry‘s different personalities and felt the connection between them. It was a perfect read for pride month and the Fourth of July holiday.

I have uncommon opinion with this one with mixed feelings. I liked the beginning of the story during the start of that romance between Alex and Henry. It was so cute, specially that first kiss. I liked also the end, to see how much family support they received, the acceptance and the respect. But most part of the story was like dragging the story with immature and unrealistic scenes. I still enjoyed it but it was ok almost so-so. 3⭐️🏳️‍🌈

I swear I spent half this book smiling. I haven‘t read anything this funny in months. I don‘t know if I‘m with popular or unpopular opinion on this, but I really liked the characters. Alex, the First Son of the U.S. has been forced to spend a day in England with Prince Henry, a person he‘s hated for years, after he destroys a $75,000 wedding cake. But soon, he realizes that Henry isn‘t the stuck-up jerk Alex once thought he was. Great book! 5⭐️

This is the story of Alex, the son of the American President and Henry, a Prince of The United Kingdom. Once adversaries, the fallout from an international incident requires them to spend a lot of time together and they end up falling in love. This is a well written and entertaining novel. There were several times I laughed out loud while reading this, and I thought the ending was perfect. I hope there will be a sequel someday. Highly recommended!

Piper I absolutely loved it!!😀 7mo
AliD73 @Piper Me too! It was one of the best romance novels I‘ve ever read! I hope there‘s a sequel, maybe one where June is the main character and Alex and Henry are supporting characters. 7mo
