"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.
Fast forward to now. Enter The Royal We. I don't remember how I first found out abut this book--I think I saw it mentioned in a magazine or maybe it was Novelicious. The premise--an American woman marrying into a fictional version of the British royal family--sounded fun even if the blurb already made it clear that it was not all fun and games. What Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan have managed to do is create a very rich story about a young woman at a crossroads and a young man whose life has already been predetermined. Their meeting wasn't part of the script the Crown had planned for him. And the attraction, the slow development of their friendship, its transitioning into love and then the eventual fallout held me from start to finish.
I loved how Rebecca "Bex" Porter was portrayed. She comes across as very real, very approachable, even when she is misbehaving and I want to slap some sense into her. Ditto for Nicholas "Knickers" Lyon--or the fictional heir to the throne. His reserve, his longing for a different kind of life and his realisation that he could have it with Bex makes him a sympathetic character, even when he too drives me bananas.
I found myself absolutely hating Bex's twin, Lacey. My God...what a spoiled, entitled brat. Bex was far too nice to her. Did it bother me that I hated Lacey? Absolutely not. You need a character like her to balance off Bex's personality. And Freddie, the prince's younger brother--well, he sounded so naughty, so dishy. Loved it! :) Even at his worst, he made it clear that he loved his brother and Bex. And this, I think, was missing from Lacey. I never felt like she really loved her sister. She loved the attention, she loved benefits of being Bex's sister, but she never felt like she genuinely loved her sister.
As the story progresses and we follow their courtship leading up to what should be the Wedding of the Century, missteps and lapses in judgment leave the reader wondering if Bex and Knickers really are built to last. And when someone close to them proves to be a snake in the grass, the ensuing fallout will pull at your heartstrings. I really enjoyed reading The Royal We. My only complaint? I wanted more...:)
