Summary

* Instant New York Times and USA Today bestseller *

What happens when America's First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales?

Alex Claremont-Diaz is handsome, charismatic, a genius--pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House ever since his mother first became President of the United States. There’s only one problem. When the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an altercation between Alex and Prince Henry, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse.

Heads of family and state devise a plan for damage control: stage a truce. But what begins as a fake, Instagrammable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon they are hurtling into a secret romance that could derail the presidential campaign and upend two nations.

'Red, White & Royal Blue is outrageously fun. It is romantic, sexy, witty, and thrilling. I loved every second.' - Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six

Romance with important message

It took a fair share of chapters to grab interest in the story. I almost returned it because of that. I'm quite glad I didn't.
The love story would not have this much impact without the context of the world we live in.
I cried. Twice.
But not so much for a couple, so for the hope that one day this HEA could've happened. Hope for a more tolerant and open-minded world.

Very UScentric

Story was fine, a few mistakes with royal etiquette but that can be overlooked since the whole thing screams USA. The prince is a supporting character, the whole thing revolves around Alex and his family and friends in the US and its clear that this was not written with a British audience in mind, which is fine, but thought I may have enjoyed it more if the characters were given equal page time and background.

Red White and Royal Blue

Really enjoyed this. the story was more meaningful than I expected. Love to see queer representation in modern romance and the love letters/emails were chefs kiss. only think I hated was the narrators attempts at an English accent...
