Book Review: Just One of the Royals

Just One of the Royals - Katrina Roets - Book Review
Star hockey player Daniel Sacachelli wants only two things: 1) for the Falcons
to win next season, and 2) for his secret — the fact he’s actually the prince of Eldonia — to never make its way to Chicago. But if Daniel keeps avoiding his crown, their family will lose their kingdom forever.

Madison Myong can’t believe that her will-they-or-won’t-they best friend Daniel is
really a prince! He’s always seemed more rebel than royal. But now, he needs to clean up his image, fast. Posing as his long-time girlfriend, Madison accompanies him back to Eldonia, intending to give Daniel a makeover fit for a king.

Only, the more royal Daniel becomes, the more Madison misses her best friend. And if she does her job right, she’ll lose him forever...

Have you ever really wanted to love a book but you just can't? Sadly, this was that book for me.  The story was cute, but a little too Princess Diaries for me. The characters seemed to feel flat and I just couldn't connect to them. There just wasn't anything about them that made them unique or made them stand out. Daniel and Madison didn't really seem to connect for me as a couple. I can see them as being close friends, but a couple? Not so much. There's also scenes towards the end of the book among two couples that just felt wedged in. The entire book was pg and then suddenly, there was a whole lot more implied.

I'm going to give this one a 3 out of 5. I didn't hate it, but it isn't one that I'll go flipping frantically through my Kindle to track down to read again later.

I received a copy of this book for the purpose of this review. All thoughts, comments, and opinions are my own.
