Their issues were so powerful and really gave me pause Forgiveness was key in this book, as well as what true love is and the exploration of soul mates.I absolutely adored all the various characters in this book not only Bex and Nick, and of course, Freddie, but also Bex s twin sister, Lacey, Prince Dick, who really had to step up in this book, the grandmother, Queen Eleanor, who I absolutely adored, and even the Queen mother and her love of the internet The evolution of situations and emotions in this book was handled remarkably well Lastly, I loved a character we only met via recounting the past, Georgina What a well rounded book bringing all of these characters together.I am a die hard fan of continuity, and so I read the first book last month I really don t think readers would get the full impact of this book without reading The Royal WeThe two go hand in hand So, if you like reading about royal families, albeit fictionalized, then this book and series are for you.Many thanks to Forever and to NetGalley for this ARC for review This is my honest opinion This was the best sequel I ve ever read The characters were beautifully consistent even as they grew and took on new adventures and I savored every moment of being back with Bex, Nick, Freddie and the whole gang Also, side note a certain baseball chapter absolutely brought me to the happiest of tears free review copy Fellow royal romance fans, I didn t think it was possible to top THE ROYAL WE but I loved this one maybe ten timesLOVE LOVE LOVE I inhaled and adored this story but am now heartbroken it s over It s the first book I ve been actually able to lose myself in since February 2020 and an absolutely heavenly comfort in the hellfire that is America right now in May 2020. Thanks to NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing for this eARC.What a balm I have been madly refreshing NetGalley to see if and when this sequel to the beloved The Royal We would show up and I am glad I did This book picks up right where the first left off and in this volume we get to dig even deeper into the inner workings of Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan s alternate dimension royal family, and into what happens behind the scenes of a royal happily ever after.The gang s all here in this bo Thanks to NetGalley and Grand Central Publishing for this eARC.What a balm I have been madly refreshing NetGalley to see if and when this sequel to the beloved The Royal We would show up and I am glad I did This book picks up right where the first left off and in this volume we get to dig even deeper into the inner workings of Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan s alternate dimension royal family, and into what happens behind the scenes of a royal happily ever after.The gang s all here in this book Bex and Nick, Freddie of course , Gaz, Cilla, Bea, etc much less Lacey this time, but what we do see of her is lovely , but the real standouts are Queen Eleanor and the Queen mum, Marta We get to see muchabout their family and who they are both as women and as figureheads Plus, we meet Georgina, this universe s Princess Margaret, who is no longer living, but still makes her presence felt for these characters What shines through in this book is Heather and Jessica s knowledge of all things royal and their commitment to creating deeply human characters who are or feel like they are in weird boxes There s a reason many people watch the royal family they are humans inhabiting singular positions, and these authors do an admirable job exploring this tension This is a kinder Succession, a funnier The Crown, and everything I needed during a global pandemic Note and minor spoiler There is a miscarriage and infertility plot line LISTEN HERE I can t even begin to tell you how much I loved the first book, much less how many times I ve reread it I don t have free time not because I m a busy person, but because I spend most of it rereading the The Royal We anyways Freddie Bex Nick I m invested in their lives, thankyouverymuch, and now I get to be eveninvested in them Seriously though, this book sounds and fingers crossed it is like it s going to befocused on Freddie who s one of my favourite characters LISTEN HERE I can t even begin to tell you how much I loved the first book, much less how many times I ve reread it I don t have free time not because I m a busy person, but

artificial coma until 2020 Thank you I received a copy of this title via NetGalley It does not impact my review.I remember being very pleasantly surprised by how much I loved The Royal We and I was so excited to see it was finally getting a sequel Much like the first book, it wasn t really what I was expecting it to be, but it was everything This is easily my favorite book of the year so far.I decided to re read the first book before jumping into The Heir Affair and I m glad I did I loved it just as much the second time around, I received a copy of this title via NetGalley It does not

I was expecting it to be, but it was everything This is easily my favorite book of the year so far.I decided to re read the first book before jumping into The Heir Affair and I m glad I did I loved it just as much the second time around, maybe evenI found myself still getting very anxious or sad at parts, even though I knew how everything turned out, which I think is a real testament to the writing I am so invested in these characters and I already miss them.The Heir Affair picks up soon after The Royal We ended The first book was written to be a standalone and it ended on a very positive note of implied Happily Ever After However, that s not quite how things turned out And really, can we expect anything to be that easy for Bex and Nick Right as the royal wedding was ending, Clive published his story about Bex and Freddie and the public immediately turned on them Bex and Nick end up running away from their problems for awhile and get to start married life in their own private bubble, which they ve always thrived in Once they have to return to reality, though, they have to face everything they ve ignored especially the Freddie of it all.I would love to tell you that things were easily worked out and it was all cute and funny and happily ever after And while there was definitely a lot of cute and funny, there is so muchsubstance to it than that That means that along with the fun banter and the highs, there were also some real lows It gave my cold, black heart some FEELINGS and I loved every minute of it, even when I kind of hated what was happening sometimes There are a lot of layers to this story, but at the forefront are the big three relationships Bex and Nick, Nick and Freddie, and Bex and Freddie There is just so much emotion there to unpack and I felt all of it They each had to work at mending their relationships and coming to terms with their feelings and I think it wrapped up in realistic and satisfying ways, if not quite the neat little bow I like things tied up in.As I mentioned previously, I absolutely love the characters in this series I loved seeing Bex s friends, Cilla, Gaz, and Bea again We didn t see quite as much as Cilla as we did in the first book, but both Gaz and Bea had some good subplots I had absolutely hated Bex s twin sister, Lacey, in the first book and was kind of hoping she d be killed off or something here, but she was actually quite palatable in this one She was the character I wished she was in the first book I loved watching Bex begin an actual relationship with members of Nick s family, especially the queen And of course, my dear Freddie He grew up so much in this book and while my heart broke for him time and time again, I like to think that he s found his own happily ever after I still wouldn t mind a Freddie spin off, though And can I just say that one of my favorite things about this series is that Freddie s nickname for Nick is Knickers I love the relationship between these brothers and they really put me through the wringer in this one.Overall, I absolutely loved The Heir Affair This review does not even come close to expressing how much The cute cover and overall storyline may fool you into thinking this is just a light and easy Romance, but it is emotional and intense in the very best of ways It s very character driven and has many threads to connect, but I think the authors did a great job of tying everything together There were a couple things left a littleopen than I like, though, which I have my fingers crossed means that another book will be coming in the future This is a must read for anyone who s read The Royal We and if you haven t started this series yet, you really should.Overall Rating out of 5 4 Stars
