Romance NA?






I had heard such good things, but frankly I was so bored!





Alex is the son of the first female president of the US. He is obsessed with politics and visits senators to get his mum re-elected *falls asleep* Oh yes the politics was so boring. I like a cool mum, but she just felt too cool. Too idolized. She should have been a bit more busy. Both her kids are in their 20s and live at the white house. They are all given jobs with her new campaign, and the the vp's kid. There I felt a bit, just don't. I get Trump kids flashbacks.




Alex has a beef with a British prince cos he was on the cover of some magazine or whatever. I never really got it. They destroy the crown prince's wedding and have to pretend to be friends. Yes, let's just fly everyone back and forth and try to pretend to be friends.




The royalty thing is again very idolized and she didn't to any research. Henry is referred to the Prince of Wales, as a foreign head of state, heir to the throne and spoiler [when they do come out as a couple they have a photo shoot that is like an engagement photo op, they are just dating! His face will not be on plates and soaps. You are just dating.! (spoiler)] He is just a prince, he has two older siblings. Btw his dad was a Bond actor and made movies all his life. Ha, like if.




They manage to keep their love affair secrets for months. And then everyone lives happily ever after and the US is so progressive and happy! I wish, I wish.




Ok, so I was talking a lot about flaws. But the premise was wonderful, I mean come on, First Son meets British prince! Hearts! But the politics dragged it down, I wanted more romance, I only got that through letters. All in all, I was bored






First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations. The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince.




As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?

  1. Só, a bit too out there, then? It will drive me mad too, the little mistakes and the improbability of it all.

  3. Sounds sooo cheesy! Too bad the politics part was so boring, otherwise it probably could have gotten away with being a cutesy comedy.

  4. I remember this book was all the rage like two-ish years ago and I never picked it up - in fact I didn't realize it was about the adult children of a female president. too funny... Sounds like I didn't miss out.
