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?

OK….This book had been in my Want to Read list for too long…and finally I get my hands on this book and…wanted to see why there’s so much hype on this book.

While the book was really good, I am not sure why there’s so much hype on this one…but maybe it was just me.

Here is the most unpopular book review of all time!

Meet Alex, the first son of the President of the United States and Henry, the Prince of England. The two were arch rivals and an incident causes them to repair the so called “friendship”. But soon, their hatred turns to friendship and then…turns to romance.

I found the first part of the book slightly boring–preparing for election I was simply skimming through those parts. However, the middle part of the book was where it got interesting. The email exchanged between Henry and Alex was cute and funny. There were some funny parts that really will make you laugh out loud. The ending was great and such this made me give the book a rating of four stars.

Even though I thought this wasn’t that great, I think this was a good book and I will be reading her other two books soon!
