The story also falls flat for me, although perhaps some of that was due to my frustration with the writing style.
Mild Spoiler Warning:
Edvin’s character was adorable... at first, but as the book progressed, I was looking for character growth that I didn’t really find. Also, for how insecure he was (and how insecure he allowed the antagonist ex to make him) I don’t know how he didn’t obsess over the burdens and duties being a Monarch’s consort would bring. I also don’t feel that the novel sets his character up to succeed in the future “beyond the pages.” I closed the book thinking he’d be eaten alive by the role and scrutiny.
The Leo character seemed more rounded, just a bit too easily and quickly enamored by Edvin. Sexuality may be a non-issue in this world, but whenever a character starts with a firm belief they are straight, there would still be more personal adjustment to finding themselves drawn to a member of the same sex. Not that it has to be angsty, but such easy acceptance is unrealistic in my opinion. I also think Leo didn’t think enough about how Edvin would fit a royal life. Mainly there was how Edvin made Leo happy or the positives Leo’s position could do for Edvin’s family. Did Leo really not worry about having the insecure Edvin become a state figure and what pressures that would bring?
Finally, the antagonist was a throwaway character that does not get a comeuppance that was fulfilling in any way.
I think I could have really liked this book had there been some heavy editing. The author’s idea was good, but didn’t really deliver in the final product.
Leo was swoon-worthy and perfect all the way through, even when he was trying to play the part of the bad boy prince. The way he always put Edvin first and didn’t question his attraction once he knew he was in love made this story especially enjoyable.
This story had minimal angst (which was just what I needed this weekend!) and was full of moments that made me smile and laugh out loud. There were even a couple of times when I found myself wiping away a tear or two.
Rosavia and its royal family felt real to me after reading this book and I appreciated getting little glimpses into the storylines of the other series characters. I would absolutely recommend this book and series to anyone who doesn’t want a lot of angst but still enjoys alllll the feels!
Eddie's A Royal Librarian with a job he loves, four younger siblings he provides for and ex-boyfriend that's an ass and a douchebag.
Prince Leopold meets Eddie's sister at the dedication of a new building for the royal library and offers to give her a private of the royal family's rose gardens. When Eddie ducks the prince's bodyguard and inserts himself between his sister and the prince stating that wouldn't be happening, the prince gets a strange feeling about Eddie and is so surprised and intrigued that anyone would deny him something he offered that he decides wants to know more about Eddie.
I really enjoy the immersive reading when it's available and was able to purchase the audible at a discounted price with kindle version. The audible version narrated by Kieran Flitton really brings it to life. Kieran will be one of the narrators I'll look forward to for future books.
I wanted to see the old selfish boyfriend's reaction to the man he took advantage of becoming the Prince's boyfriend. I wanted to experience a little of the sibling's and Eddie's reactions to life in the spotlight. I am reading the next book in the series.

As I had read the Arc from youngest to oldest it ment the wedding was the last part to be read. While this may not be the order the authors wants us to read...I personally loved it
With each of the other books we get little glimpses into the other princes and their partners.
But not one of the other authors hit on Eddies back bone. It was surprising just how quickly Leo fell for the quiet unassuming Eddie. Esp after being a playboy that chased only females.
But for Leo to love Eddie and his younger siblings and to want to care for them, even when they were ill, showed me a side of the crown prince that made me cheer them on.
This is a re read book and series. One to keep on the kindle to help make you smile.
