This is a lovely teen romance with plenty of surprises along the way. To start with Daniel Sacachelli is the illegitimate son – and heir -of the King of Eldonia but no one at his school knows this. There he’s one of the star hockey players and best friend of Madison Myong. Actually he’d like to be much more than her best friend, but she has very controlling parents and he has a poor reputation so they’d find him totally unacceptable. Little does he know that Madison also wants to be more than his best friend but doesn’t feel able to take the next steps to change that. Well, that was true until she overheard that he needs to save the throne for his family, so he needs help to make himself fit to be King. Now that’s something Madison can do – she’s a talented actor and has helped others take on different roles convincingly in the past. So now, the two are off to Eldonia, posing as a couple. Will they manage to fool everyone? Can she really help prove him worthy of becoming King? Will fake become real?
This is a fun, light-hearted and entertaining read, with plenty of laugh out loud moments, some farcical aspects and great friendships and team spirit to help everything work out in the end. A quirky, quick and enjoyable read, just don’t take it too seriously! I hadn’t read the other book in this series but will be endeavouring to do so in future.
I requested and was given a copy of this novel, via NetGalley, with no obligation. This is my honest review of the book after choosing to read it.
Star hockey player Daniel Sacachelli wants only two things: 1) for the Falcons to win next season, and 2) for his secret — the fact he’s actually the prince of Eldonia — to never make its way to Chicago. But if Daniel keeps avoiding his crown, their family will lose their kingdom forever.
Madison Myong can’t believe that her will-they-or-won’t-they best friend Daniel is really a prince! He’s always seemed more rebel than royal. But now, he needs to clean up his image, fast. Posing as his long time girlfriend, Madison accompanies him back to Eldonia, intending to give Daniel a makeover fit for a king.
Only, the more royal Daniel becomes, the more Madison misses her best friend. And if she does her job right, she’ll lose him forever…
