Hi Everyone! It’s Becky, again. Anyone who knows me knows that I am a huge fan of Christmas…seriously….it’s to the point that it’s a little weird. I love twinkle lights, Christmas trees, movies set at Christmas (the cheesy the better!), and of course a good Christmas romance book. So, I present to any other Christmas addicts out there “Prince in Disguise” by Stephanie Kate Strohm.
Prince in Disguise by Stephanie Kate Strohm
Release Date: December 19, 2017
Dylan likes being the girl no one notices. Dusty, Dylan’s sister, likes being the one everyone looks at and EVERYONE is looking at Dusty. Dylan’s former beauty pageant sister, she was Miss Mississippi, is now the star of her own reality show. Dylan found love with a Scottish Lord on the popular television show “Prince in Disguise” and her wedding is going to be the hottest show of the season. Dylan is now forced to spend her winter break in a drafty castle being followed around cameras. The only bright spot in Dylan’s day is Jamie, the adorable groomsman who may just be Dylan’s own Prince Charming.
Oh, how this book was a pleasant surprise. I was expecting a cheesy Christmas read which I did get but I also got so much more. This book is laugh out loud funny. I found myself giggle at Dylan and Jamie’s intellectual banter throughout the book. Plus, the character are wonderfully likable with layers that make them feel a little more real and goes far beyond what you would expect in a teen romance book. Even seemingly one dimensional Dusty has surprising layers which is highlighted in one of the funniest and cutest scenes in the book. But the real reason this book is such a winner is the romance between Dylan and Jamie. Dylan is sarcastic and strong willed while Jamie is nerdy and cure while quoting classic literature and Disney movies. Together they are adorkable, they are sweet, they are believable, and they are what makes this book work.
Bottomline: “Prince in Disguise” is a funny and sweet YA romance that I highly recommend.
Final Rating: 4 out of 5
