Holy wow. this book. I'm just in awe of Talia Hibbert's talent seriously. I was hooked from the first line of this book and it took me no time at all to fall in love with Cherry and Ruben and their friends.
This book made me feel all the things. i laughed for sure, many times, then my heart felt so heavy for Ruben's past. Some scenes were really hard to read (please note the warning at the beginning) His brother the king is an abusive POS and his demise was fitting and satisfying.
I loved how for Ruben and Cherry it all started with intense chemistry and grew into more and I love heroines who give the hero a run for his money and yesss this was Cherry. I also adored Ruben's PA and his best friend/bodyguard. They were great characters as well. the first time we see Demi (his PA on page) she's meeting them at the airport in her glittery hijab. i loved her so much and i shipped her and Hans (the bodyguard) right away and whoop! my ship sailed lol.
I also loved that Cherry had people in her corner too. and even as her sister Mags wasn't in the same country their text convos made me smile and i was so glad that Ruben's circle of people adored Cherry as much as he did.
We get two epilogues!!!! That both almost made me cry (glares at author, how dare you???lol) but what a great ending for these two.
Let me just say if you're not reading Talia's books why not??? She writes really great black british heroines and interracial romance. so get on that. you got a good backlist to start with :D
I fell for Ruben from the beginning. That sweet, complicated, struggling man had my heart from the jump. Maybe it was from the instant he clearly cared about kids and equality even as he snapped because someone called him Your Highness. But it was very much in evidence after this prince of a man first caught sight of Cherry and was a goner. Oh, he didn't know what was happening, silly boy, but the rest of us could clearly see he wanted forever even if he didn't know what to call it just then.
Cherry took a bit for me but we got there. She just seemed too hidden. All sunshine outside but shadowed inner life. But maybe we just had to get to know each other. I adored Cherry's openness to taking what she wanted and needed from Ruben, even when she first thought that was just a night of lust ... not that they got that far that night. I loved the strength she got from showing "weakness", even as I kinda of hated it, that she felt she had to use it. I loved her curves and her sass. I wanted even more from her ... we get glimpses of her self-doubt, about her intellect and about her skin. (Never her curves though, which I loved!) I wanted an exploration of that.
This book does grapple with a host of difficult issues, including child and domestic abuse. Child sexual abuse is hinted at but never baldly said. If I had a niggle, it would be on that point. I would rather it not be hinted at if it wasn't going to be talked about at all and brought into the open. Beyond that there is an exploration of class, of power, of public appearances over reality.
Secondary characters were scant but lovely glimpses. The adorbs Demetria and glowering, protective Hans. Perceptive Rose. Agathe. Even the away at school yet present sister Maggie. (Whose casually commented on sexuality was a dab touch) Dare we hope for a Demi and Hans novella? Or a book about home from Harvard hottie Maggie? Ah, hope does spring eternal.
