About the book
Jess is trying to win back her boyfriend, who dumped her for being boring. Jamie is trying to complete his father’s bucket list before he takes the Crown. Both of them are hiding who they truly are, and when the truth is discovered, it’s a real royal Christmess!
Jess is still in disbelief about being used, dumped and embarrassed – not necessarily in that order. Her work colleague really messes with her head and she isn’t quite ready to let go of the fantasy she had constructed in her head, so when she meets Jamie she tells him she has a partner.
Jamie is a prince avoiding his duties and his arranged marriage. He decides to have one last good time and tick off some things on his bucket list before settling down and running an entire kingdom. He doesn’t expect to meet someone so obstinate and also simultaneously so intriguing to him. A young woman who is irritated by him and laughs with him at the same time.
Testing their bravery, experiencing excitement and lots of laughter. Eventually reality catches up with them both though. Jamie has to return to his duties and Jess has to face the difficult truth.
This is a fun escapism read full of warm fluffy romance and wintery feels. It’s nothing overly complex and West doesn’t purport to present anything other than other a read that makes you smile and feel good. If that’s the kind of book you enjoy the author has plenty more where that came from.
