Regal romance abounds in this flirty, laugh-out-loud companion novel to Royals, by New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins. Millie Quint is devastated when she discovers that her sort-of-best friend/sort-of-girlfriend has been kissing someone else. Heartbroken and ready for a change of pace, Millie decides to apply for scholarships to boarding schools . . . the farther from Houston the better. Soon, Millie is accepted into one of the world's most exclusive schools, located in the rolling highlands of Scotland. Here, the country is dreamy and green; the school is covered in ivy, and the students think her American-ness is adorable. The only problem- Mille's roommate Flora is a total princess. She's also an actual princess. Of Scotland. At first, the girls can't stand each other, but before Millie knows it, she has another sort-of-best-friend/sort-of-girlfriend. Princess Flora could be a new chapter in her love life, but Millie knows the chances of happily-ever-afters are slim . . . after all, real life isn't a fairy tale . . . or is it? New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins brings the feels and the laughs to her latest romance.… (mais)

Spectacularly gay but not long enough ( )
  astronomist | Oct 3, 2021 |
This book has been on my radar for quite a while, and I won’t deny that I do love me some royal romances; they are fairytale-esque and provide some cheer in a gloomy world. And after really having a lot of fun reading the shenanigans of a gay Prince in Red White and Royal Blue, I wanted to indulge in some sapphic goodness and enjoy the story of a gay Princess this time around.

Amelia or Millie is a young Texan who is very excited to spend her senior year in the charming mountains of Scotland at an exclusive fancy boarding school. I loved how nerdy she was and her love of rocks and her budding geologist ambitions were awesome. Princess Flora on the other hand is not happy about being at the school away from her family, is always trying to get expelled and just cross with Millie for being her roommate. There never really is much of a reason for their antagonistic dynamic and it changed into an unlikely friendship and then a crush pretty quickly. It was sweet and adorable to read about and I quite enjoyed all their moments together. There are also some fun side characters, and I really loved both Saks and Perry. I definitely wouldn’t mind a book featuring more of them.

I haven’t read the first book in the series, so I didn’t know what to expect from this one, but the writing was very easy and pleasing to read. I just flew through this one and there were quite a few laugh out loud moments. It’s a fairly short read and that might be a reason, but I felt there was not much of a plot. While I loved some of the descriptions of the Scottish Highlands, there’s not a lot of it to appreciate. The characters and their relationship while being cute, also felt pretty superficial but I’m not holding that against it because I guess that’s the tone the author was aiming for. Everything just happens within the span of a few months but these are teenagers, so I’m not too surprised. There is a little bit of conflict too but I thought it came out of nowhere and then was resolved within a few pages. The sexuality of the characters is also just all fine, and everyone is very accepting (even the royals). While it feels unrealistic for our times, we can all hope for that future.

Finally, I just want to say that this is a very sweet and adorable, low stakes and no angst high school Royal romance, and all the sapphic vibes you can ask for. It’s a light, breezy and fun read and will definitely make you smile, or atleast make you forget your woes on a bad day. Read this book when you need a little pick me up and you won’t be disappointed. ( )

teen lightweight romance with incidentally bi/lesbian 17-y.o.s
The characters are not developed that much (pretty much flat, aside from Millie having a backstory) but this is a perfectly cute "falling in love with a princess" story if that's what you're looking for. parental notes: a little drinking (legal in Scotland at that age) and also a small but not explicit amount of kissing/making out) ( )

[Audiobook review]

I'll start with that while I am not the target demographic of the book I enjoyed it non the less.

1) The narrator did a lovely job. I'm not an expert in what Scottish accents are supposed to sound like but her Southern and Scottish accents sounded realistic to my uneducated ear. On top of the accents we managed to differentiate all the characters so I was never left confused as to who was talking.
2) The bit with the dueling pistols was hilarious.
3) In this book Scotland has its own royal family (and presumably independent from England?)
4) Haggis was not brought up, but kilts, land rovers, sheep and bagpipes are.
5) I will agree with other reviewers in that things felt a bit rushed. The amount of time the protagonist felt a crush for the princess to being madly in love with her felt squished and rushed to an extent. If the book had covered more than 3(4?) months of time, with more time on the 'courtship'/'awkward shenanigans' I think the book would have been even more enjoyable.
6) There were a few subtle jabs at the romance/highlander cliches which were pretty funny.
7) The behavior and speech of our protagonist (and her compatriots) felt like how a late teen would act/talk like. All to frequently you'll find protagonists that act and sound more like an adult than a teenager. You can be assured, in this book teenagers make all the 'great' choices you'd expect from teenagers.

I am desperately trying to avoid all election coverage today, so instead, here's another queer young-adult romance! Not my favorite, but cute.

Millie, now entering her senior year of high school, has applied and been accepted to a Scottish boarding school. Though it's a huge change from her life in Texas, Millie--also struggling to get over a breakup--decides to head across the pond for the year. When she arrives, she learns that her new roommate just happens to be Princess Flora, a notoriously rambunctious Scottish princess. From the beginning, Millie and Flora really don't hit it off, both of them being in very different worlds. But with the school's legendary Challenge, a partner-based weekend camping experience, the two begin to have to work together.

This was quite cute, and I think that it was a solid YA female-female romance. The pacing didn't make a lot of sense, though, and various things seemed either to blossom into huge problems really quickly or to be solved in the next moment. The story's definitely cute, though, and I think that it definitely has a place as a wlw teen romance. ( )
