This was a cute little love story, with a twist, since it was between two young men. Nice change and fun to read!

Loved this book! Read if you liked Boyfriend Material.
First Son of the USA, Alex, is a playboy in the press & a big ole nerd in private. He also has a decade-long, one-sided feud with Prince Henry of England. When a misunderstanding between them turns into a public fight, their PR teams make them seem like bffs.
When Henry kisses Alex at the First Sibling‘s NYE party, Alex‘s entire life shifts as hate becomes something else.
Finished 11/25/2022

Needing a comfort read today. It‘s dreary outside and I‘m feeling pretty dreary & down too. My daughter bought me this collector‘s edition for Christmas so it‘s just the thing I need. Plus, it‘ll work for #52bookclub23 #typographiccover so win, win.

i absolutely adored this book! it was steamy but not smut, romantic but not annoyingly gushy, and very well written! there‘s a healthy balance between the hopeless romanticism and the more serious aspects of grief and anxiety, but this book revolves around being shamelessly queer and i absolutely adored it. loved every character and every plotline, and i didn‘t want it to end ever!! i also love anything british :)

I finally took a proper look at the under-dust-jacket cover of the Deluxe Edition of Red, White, and Royal Blue and the artwork on the endpapers. I immediately burst into tears (one such tear pictured here). This book remains my favorite romance of all time and feels so pivotal in my own journey as a queer person and a reader. FEELINGS. I'm trying to work up the emotional energy to read the bonus chapter from Henry's perspective. I may perish. 💀

Review of Special Edition.

Gorgeous! From the embossed cover to illustrations inside the cover a delight to look at. 25 pages of new content. Definitely earns a spot on my #ForeverShelf.

As for that extra Chapter from Henry's POV - Fandom was gracious enough not to spoil before I had a chance to read so I will extend the same No Spoilers Courtesy. Let's just say it made my heart happy. It's truly a gift. ❤🇺🇸👬🇬🇧💙

Devoured! Absolutely lives up to the hype! What took me so long?!

I totally mistook this with the description of Boyfriend Material (aka no issue about being queer in the public eye) so then I was super surprised that a large part of the plot is grappling with that. But that just made the book feel really real.

Alex + Henry are #relationshipgoals. Almost nauseatingly so, but hey, that‘s romance novels!

Also LOVED all the friends + sisters.

Red, White & Royal Blue, unbelievably, lives up to the hype. Of course, it‘s targeted at younger readers, but I can vouch for the fact that it resonates for young-at-heart readers, too. I‘d especially recommend it for fans of The West Wing. Full review: https://keepingupwiththepenguins.com/red-white-royal-blue-casey-mcquiston/

Well this was a fun romance! It came highly recommended by the romance bookclub I recently attended and it did not disappoint. It took me a few chapters to get invested, but then I was all in! And there were a few pop culture references I loved (hello Jurassic Park 🦖). So glad I read this one! 4⭐️

My June reread of this book may have made me even happier than reading it for the first time back when it came out!

When real life is upsetting beyond measure, sometimes the only solution is to loose yourself into a book.

PS: the fan art is not mine, but I found fan art for a bunch for different books during Pride month that made me really happy!

Enemies to lovers is totally my weakness, and this one delivers all the feels. Alex and Henry are relationship goals and I really wanted to be in their group of friends! This book's dialogue is smart and witty and sharp, weaving international relations, politics, social issues and sexy times all into one. This book definitely lives up to the hype!

I was between rating this book 3.5 or 4 but I ultimately decided on 4 because I would read this book again.

The basis of the plot was honestly a bit familiar for me and felt kind of like an AU fanfic, and that's not necessarily a bad thing because I have the biggest fanfic addiction. But what made the rest of the plot points stand out is that she made the plot her own, with the characters and their developments with themselves and other people.

2 chapters in. Could use less casual swearing 🤗 The royal family, as portrayed here, seems a lot more, shall we say, woke. Fun mix of fiction with actual history; the First Family are successors to the Obamas etc. The first US female president is a Democrat from Texas 🤔

humouress Alex suddenly discovers he's gay and immediately launches into a hot, heavy, indiscreet affair. There's no will they/ won't they about this one. 9mo
humouress About 1/3 way through; finding Henry a bit 2-D. Liking Alex's family, though (edited) 9mo
humouress Not sure how the US president's 2 kids, the VP's granddaughter, the youngest 2 kids of the heir to the British throne and their millionaire best friend get to part-ay with only 1 bodyguard.
1/2 way through: not really au fait with all the political campaigning ins and outs. Or, TBH, all the different names of Mexican food. Maybe because I'm reading an e-book and the spacing is out but finding the occasional sudden changes in subject jarring

A fued between Alex Claremont-Diaz, a well respected son of the President and Prince Henry of Wales, a royalty in England will lead to some suprising romance blossoming between the two. One accident during a ball has lead them to a new kind of relationship for them. The two grew closer after the incident after finding out they have a lot in common and the rest is history.If you like books that has steamy romance,then this is for you.

Odrel.Penaflor (Continuation) The overall theme of this book is about love how it can be messy yet the results are promising. During the mens fued they tend to keep pushing each other to the breaking point yet in the end they managed to grow closer and bond. As mentioned the incident is messy a news headliner moment which stained both reputations yet afterwards the results of this is their romantic attraction. 9mo
MissYaremcio Thank you for the review Odrel! This book is on my TBR list! As this post was on POV, you receive a grade of 4/6 9mo

My word count allowance is to short to express how much I loved this cute, fun, and somewhat steamy queer romance. Alex and Henry are everything to me now and I loved the love quotes they sent in their emails, and I love the hope for a better world and all the complex characters.
