"Smart, funny . . . [Cocks and Morgan] write like the pros they've become."―Janet Maslin, The New York Times
"The characters should all be familiar: the heir to the British throne, his mischievous younger brother, his granny and the pretty commoner he meets in college. But in this version by bloggers Cocks and Morgan (a.k.a. the Fug Girls), the girl is American. Nick and Bex's love story is so fun and dishy, you'll hope for a sequel--with royal babies."―People
"In the grand tradition of Curtis Sittenfeld's American Wife . . . A breezy, juicy novel that's like The Princess Diaries with fewer made-up countries and more sex-the kind of book you can imagine Pippa sneaking into Kensington Palace."―Entertainment Weekly
"Hysterical."―Entertainment Weekly, "The Must List"
"Every bit as engrossing as the real Kate and Will. . . . The pages turn as easily as a tabloid feature on the royal couple-and you'll end up just as obsessed with Bex and Nick as you already are with Wills and Kate."―Glamour
"Cute, well-written, and perfect for summer. . . . I loved it."―Buzzfeed, "29 Books You Should Definitely Bring to the Beach This Summer"
"The authors hit all the right notes in this funny, smart, emotional tale that will definitely appeal to fans of Jojo Moyes."―Library Journal (Starred Review)
"Pages of biting humor and breathtaking glamour rewrite a fairy tale into something more satisfying than a stack of tabloids."―Kirkus

Now don't get me wrong I enjoyed this book. There was just nothing earth shattering about it. The author's writing was ok, but not spectacular. It was a fun read, but not one I would reread many times as I am prone to doing with an amazing book. I may read the sequel, but I guess that depends. I recently heard this is being made into a movie and frankly I can't figure out why. This book was fun, but not movie material. So if you are looking for a quick, easy and most cute read some weekend this is a great pick. There are mentions of sexual activity, drinking and cursing, but I don't remember any explicit sexual scenes.
The story of "Nick and Bex" may not be as starched and pressed as one might expect for the love story of a Prince and his American, but that's precisely the point: things are rarely, if ever, that crisp and clean. They have a "meet cute" moment at Oxford and soon become privately inseparable, but duty interferes and the public life becomes somewhere between tricky and downright impossible. The ups and downs of the next eight years reveal both the cracks and the love among the tight-knit group of friends and family in orbit around the binary system of "Posh and Bex", and it's easy to believe that the ties forged over time have built a family that transcends both class and country.
This was a very well-done and entertaining read, and I can't wait to see what Cocks and Morgan have up their sleeves again next.
The authors, who run the blog GoFugYourself are strong writers with a great sense of humor, and that all shines through in this book. Definitely worth a read!
The only thing that I had trouble with was the sheer volume of secondary and tertiary characters, as it was hard to keep up with who was who sometimes. Especially when they kept going between their nicknames and their regular names. I did like the characters in Bex's circle of friends, except for the ones I wasn't supposed to like.
All I know is that there needs to be a sequel. I'm sure the Fug Girls will do an equally amazing job with it.
As far as casting, I didn't really see anyone as celebrities in my head, but I thought Armie Hammer (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2309517/?r...) would be great as Nick. And I sometimes saw Rupert Grint (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0342488/?r...) as Gaz. (I'd love to hear your casting ideas because this would be such a fun movie.)
