My Royal Showmance by Lexi Blake

Rating: 3 out of 5.

This was a fun read and read it in a couple of hours. If you like the normal American girl loves royal from a tiny European country thing, you’ll probably love this book.

I loved how Anika and Luca met and how they clicked so well. I loved how strong Anika was in such a toxic environment and how she decided to fight for what was right. Luca was wonderful I really liked him. But one of my favourite things about this book was the beautiful friendships. Anika’s friends were the best, the new friends she made in the TV show were fun as well, and Anika’s mom and Tonya’s friendship was so wholesome.

Even though it was a fun story, there were many things I didn’t enjoy as I hoped. For the first half of the book the FMC was such a pick-me girl / I’m-not-like-the-other-girls and I don’t enjoy that at all. But also, she wasn’t consistent. She criticised certain things and then proceeded to act in the same way. In the second part of the book she was better and I actually liked how she acted on many occasions.

I really liked the MMC as I mentioned, but I feel like he lacked depth. I feel like I didn’t even get to know him. Also, I didn’t really feel like I read a love story. It almost felt like a subplot. The whole falling in love part wasn’t really there, it was pretty much insta-love.

But even though these things didn’t work for me, I know many people will love this book.

Thank you so much to Valentine PR and Lexi Blake for the eARC in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

love, Lin xx
