What drew me to this book was obviously the most adorable cover and the quirky title. Then I read the synopsis and I was ready for this. Who doesn’t love a royal romance with the most incredible meet-cute?
This book was one of the sweetest and cutest things that I’ve ever read. I couldn’t help but have a smile on my face the entire time. This was more than just a cutesy romance with a young lady from New Jersey and a Prince from across the pond falling head over heels, it had a lot of heart, strong community bonding, and a strong-willed woman with a plan.
One of the best things about this was that it was a positive judge free zone. The characters kept their heads held high and accomplished so much. It was truly inspiring. Also, we can’t forget about the meet-cute that happened at the library! All meet-cutes should happen that way.
Truly Madly Royally was a really uplifting and cute read. I highly recommend this one for anyone who’s feeling down and needs to find their place in this world.
