Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
“‘Archnemesis’ implies he’s actually a rival to me on any level and not, you know, a stuck-up product of inbreeding who probably jerks off to photos of himself.”
Soooo, we don‘t like each other. I can see where this is going…
Unfortunately we are going in the third person present tense. Not my favourite in a novel. It‘s weird. But I got over it. Because this is a very good romance novel. It has a thinking hat on, with a pigeon on top…
“The woman in front of him is wearing a hat with an entire taxidermied pigeon on it. High school lacrosse did not prepare him for this kind of sporting event.“
Pretty entertaining! I read into the wee hours of the morning twice. Just a shame that the sex scenes are so PG-rated…
Good sense of humour, believable and not cringe-worthy amounts of drama and angst, blessed lack of the most stupid romance tropes.
Wow, I am actually impressed and will definitely look up more books by the author. Recommended.
PS: Just for the record, old German dudes don‘t regularly wear lederhosen… 😉
