Red, White & Royal Blue: 10/05/20
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston assumes an alternate timeline. Instead of Trump we have a woman as president. She's not Hilary Clinton either. She's been remarried and her adult children are living at the White House. Her adult son, Alex Cameron-Diaz has a long standing rivalry with the Prince of Wales.
Before you imagine Prince Charles, take a deep soothing breath. In this alternate timeline, there's also a different royal family. The Prince of Wales is in his twenties and named Henry. He's also frustratingly perfect and boring.
After a disastrous incident involving a wedding cake, Alex and Henry are forced together in a series PR events. It's during these heavily staged events that they go from enemies to lovers.
The couple are cute and the sexual tension is palpable. There are times where the scenes jump a little too quickly. Other times the sexy times get weighed down in politics. But all in all it was a fun read.
