Publisher: Berkley

An ordinary summer goes royally awry when a prince and princess move next door, bringing their handsome bodyguard with them, from New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle.

Piper Evans: elementary school teacher by day–avid romance reader and anonymous podcaster by night. She lives a quiet, reclusive life, taking care of her mother, who struggles with mental illness, avoiding her regrettable ex, who bartends in town, and trying to make inroads in the tight-knit island community that still sees her, five years in, as an outsider.

And she’s happy with how things are–really–until British royals rent the property next to hers and their brooding bodyguard decides she’s a security threat. Piper quickly realizes that one person’s fairy tale is an ordinary woman’s nightmare as a media frenzy takes over the island and each run-in with Harrison Cole is hotter and more confusing than the last. But beneath Harrison’s no-nonsense exterior lies a soft heart, one that could tempt a woman who’s sworn off attachments into believing in white knights.

But when Piper finds herself smack in the middle of a royal scandal that rocks the island she’ll need more than Harrison’s strong arms to shield her–she’ll have to do a little rescuing herself. With careers, hearts, and friendships on the line, Piper and Harrison will have to decide what they’re willing to give up for a chance at their own happily ever after.” (Goodreads)

I first saw this cover on Instagram awhile ago and I immediately added it to my tbr. I’m so glad I was approved on Netgalley! I will be starting it today and I can’t wait to see where the story goes.

Does this one sound like something you would read?

    1. Haha, yeah I finished it last night and it was definitely on the steamy side. I think overall the plot was good though.

      1. Ha! I just looked at your WWW post again and saw that you’ve already finished. LOL! Glad the plot was still good. That definitely helps out. I HATE when it just feels like a plot was thrown together to support sex scenes.

      2. Same! I definitely wasn’t sold on the romance but I liked the other message of the book about reading romance novels and the friendship between her and the royals.
