What happens when America's First Son falls in love with the Prince of Wales? When his mother became President, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius?his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, U.S./British relations take a turn for the worse. Heads of family, state, and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage, and the power, to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through? Casey McQuiston's Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn't always diplomatic. Praise for Red, White & Royal Blue: "Effervescent and empowering on all levels, Red, White & Royal Blue is both a well-written love story and a celebration of identity." ? NPR "I took this with me wherever I went and stole every second I had to read! Absorbing, hilarious, tender, sexy?this book had everything I crave. I'm jealous of all the readers out there who still get to experience Red, White & Royal Blue for the first time!" - Christina Lauren, New York Times bestselling author of Love and Other Words and Roomies " Red, White & Royal Blue is outrageously fun. It is romantic, sexy, witty, and thrilling. I loved every second." - Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Maybe in Another Life… (mehr)

*edit 06/29/20*
I'm dropping my rating to four stars. I still really enjoyed it but the issue I discussed in the spoiler section of my re-read was bothering me more and more as I thought about it and I do think it impacted my overall enjoyment enough to warrant reducing my rating.

*6/17/2020 re-read*

Still very good but I'm probably closer to a 4.5 star rating after this re-read. I have some thoughts but a lot of them are spoilery so just know that I still think it's cute but I also recognize that if Alex was a real person, I would probably really dislike him because verbose overachievers that argue with their professors all the time are so annoying to me. Also the last 50 pages of this book are so unrealistic but that didn't bother me too much because I understand why it was written that way.

Spoiler section!
One thing that did bother me a lot actually on this re-read was the decision to make Richards gay or bisexual. McQuiston points out the fact that a lot of people assume that homophobes are secretly gay and it gives straight people an excuse to not take resposibilty. Most homophobes are not gay and just because you point that out when writing your secretly gay homophobe doesn't make it better and it is a stereotype that I hate and I think this book would have been better if it had been left out. I also wasn't satisfied with any explanation as to why Luna joined the Richards campaign so I wish that had been fleshed out more. This last complaint is less important but I don't understand why law school wasn't already part of Alex's plan to get to congress by age 30. While there are congress people who don't even have college degrees, a lot of senators and representatives have law degrees and most presidents have also been to law school. It just seems like something Alex would have already planned to do to bolster him electability.

------03/08/2020 review ---------------

super, super cute! This was just as cute as everyone was saying it was. I've read a lot more romance recently so I know what I like and what I don't and this book had so many things I like! There were a few things I didn't love but for the most part I was in love with story!

Henry and Alex's romance was so sweet and unfolded so naturally. I liked that it didn't linger in the enemies section of this enemies to lovers romance for too long and they pretty quickly realized their feelings for each other. I just love the set up of two people bonding over their similar difficult experiences and that's exactly what this relationship was based on. Alex as the first son could really connect with Henry because of the fact that Henry was a royal and I just really loved that. I loved how they supported each other through navigating what their relationship would mean for their families and that they never pushed each other too hard for something the other person wasn't comfortable with.

There are sex scenes in this book but I would describe them less as sex scenes and more as references to the sex. They're are not explicit scenes, definitely less explicit compared to the other romance I've been reading. Enough is explained that you get a pretty good sense of what is happening between them but nothing I considered explicit. I wouldn't call this YA, it's more like new adult but it is on the less explicit side so that's something to keep in mind going into this.

The side characters in this were all great. I loved reading about Nora and June and their relationship to Alex. Every character had such a distinct role and personality and I thought that really added to the character of the story and helped with the plotting a lot.

I think everyone has said this at this point but this book was amazing and I would absolutely recommend picking this up if you haven't already. ( )

I understand now, why everyone was in such a tizzy after reading this book.
So, I am a person who enjoys dropping spoilers and phrases from books to get people to read it.
But in this situation I'll refrain , because this book deserves to just be picked up without any pre-conceived notions and just go along with the journey, and emotions of the characters. ( )

Alex Claremont-Diaz is the son of the first female president and because of this, he has become the equivalent of young American royalty. With his love of politics, he is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. The only problem: Alex can't stand England's actual prince, Henry. When the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex and Henry altercation, heads of family and other handlers devise a plan for damage control...

What begins as a fake, photographic friendship, grows much deeper. Soon, Alex and Henry are doing everything they can to get moments together without those in their immediate circle knowing. If the secret gets out, it could derail the Claremont re-election campaign and upend the two nations. Where does one find courage, and the power, to be the person you're meant to be? How can we let our true colors shine through? Because, love isn't always diplomatic.

The only reason this book took me as long as it did to read was because I would purposely not read it unless I knew I wasn't going to be interrupted. This book was just so cute and adorable and I loved it so much. Even though it would have crazy moments happening, Alex and Henry were so cute, I would get sucked into their world.

This story did read a little "Fanfictiony" but I think that's honestly what I enjoyed the most about it. For the longest time, I grew up reading only fanfiction. Enemies to lovers but still torn apart by opposing sides? Make it gay? Sign me up! It was a great escape. Especially since work had become slightly more hectic again.

The banter between Alex and Henry had me ugly snort laughing! Especially the emails at the beginning:

First Son of Your Former Colony
Alex, First Son of Off-Brand England
Horrible Revolting Heir

I would aim this book more towards the New Adult genre (18-25) as both main boys are in their early twenties as well as some of the context - both mentally and sexually. But anyone that wants enemies to lovers romance, this is the book for you! ( )
  oldandnewbooksmell | Sep 24, 2021 |
A very satisfying read. Lots of humour and a lot of heart.

Bonus point: I actually didn't want to stop reading! Which makes this the second book this week after a very long. Weird how that sometimes goes. ( )

An entertaining book but the political terminology and plot made it a bit boring and difficult to understand at times. ( )
