THE INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER that is a *MUST-READ BOOK* for US WEEKLY, VOGUE, NPR, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, OPRAHMAG.COM, and more! 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. "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 The Unhoneymooners "Red, White & Royal Blue is outrageously fun. It is romantic, sexy, witty, and thrilling. I loved every second." - Taylor Jenkins Reid, New York Times bestselling author of Daisy Jones & The Six… (mais)

WOW WOW WOW!

Recommended: YEEEESS! :D
For those who love characters you truly root for with all your heart by the end, for inspiration to live your own life bravely, and for a great book that delivers a much more complex and detailed story than impressive.

Thoughts:
Wow, guys. Wow. What an impressive surprise this book was. I thought it would be a light, funny read (if probably a bit predictable and cliched). While it had the lightness and humor at points, it also was startlingly deep and sensitive and sexy as hell.

Our MCs, Alex & Henry, have that hate-to-love thing going on. But my god, is it so much more than that. You don't often seen a romance struggling with political and international constraints where the people involved are teenagers (or under the age of 30, really). YA political romance is something I never knew I needed in my life, and McQuiston has filled a void I never knew needed filling! So from the start, kudos for a quite original premise and delivery.

The personal identity questions around Alex's bisexuality is handled with honesty, tact, and just as much angst as you would expect when his crush could cost his mother her presidency. The actual romance between them is steamy, too, with both beautifully touching and searingly sexual scenes that capture what love and passion really are.

The supporting characters are all delightful and well developed as well. Far from feeling flat, they add to the story with their own paths in addition to being foils for Henry and Alex to develop further from.

Ending: A I was actually holding my breath, flying through the last pages so fast with one question: "WHAT HAPPENS WITH TEXAS?" Was it predictable? No, actually. As I said, I haven't read much political love intrigue with such young stars, so I really wasn't sure how it would play out. Maybe some things I saw coming, but there was enough uncertainty to keep me devouring this book (as you may have noticed, I slammed out all 423 pages in two days). ( )

This is like gay Royal We. (I’m fact, I found the book because the Fug Girls recommended it.)

Interesting mix of romance and politics. Enjoyed it for the most part but wished it was a little less crude.

I’m not talking about the gay stuff - that’s fine - but I just thought the way they talked to one another - in particular the parents/kids seemed unnecessarily peppered with cursing. It’s a silly nitpick but it bugged me.

I was also annoyed with how much the young people were involved in the politics - they seemed too young for the roles they were given in the campaign. I get they had to be young to still live in the White House but living there didn’t really seem essential to the plot because the relationship between Alex & Harry would be a huge deal even if he didn’t live there and I think the romance and it’s implications would have held more weight if they were older.

Pure gay joy. ( )

Moving, sexy, politically relevant - a true gem

It’s hard to describe this book. It’s modern with talk of social media, it’s classic with literary references, it’s historic with snippets of American and British history. But mostly, it’s a great coming out and love story. ( )

I was warned ahead of time that this book was ~spicy~ and I'm really glad I was because, if not, I would have been very thrown off by it. I read the audiobook and the narrator threw me off so much with his voice that I put the book down for a day or two after only getting 2% in. I'm not sure why, it just did. That aside, this book was super cute and I loved it so much that I read it in like a day when I finally picked it up. It has quite a few parallels to Boyfriend Material (which is also one of my favorites of the year) like enemies to lovers, British people, and some others. I did tune out some of the political talks because I didn't understand some of it, but otherwise, it's cute, tense, spicy, and endearing (and also how I wish the 2016 and 2020 elections would have gone).
