Two important governments intertwine when America’s First Son falls for the Prince of England.
Since before his mom was elected as president, Alex Claremont-Diaz has had a rivalry with Prince Henry. When an international brawl causes the two to become fake friends in front of the media, they realize they have more in common than they thought.
The novel gives a fresh take on the LGBTQIA+ genre. While Alex is at first confused about his feelings toward another man, he quickly accepts his bisexuality. Prince Henry knows he’s gay, but knows the Crown won’t let him be gay, which will challenge the way you think about modern sexuality in places of power.
The story can dive into sex without having to worry about its audience as the characters fall above the YA level.
Final say: This book has my vote. ★★★★★
