Meet Daisy Winters. She’s an offbeat sixteen-year-old Floridian with mermaid-red hair; a part time job at a bootleg Walmart, and a perfect older sister who’s nearly engaged to the Crown Prince of Scotland. Daisy has no desire to live in the spotlight, but relentless tabloid attention forces her to join Ellie at the relative seclusion of the castle across the pond.
While the dashing young Miles has been appointed to teach Daisy the ropes of being regal, the prince’s roguish younger brother kicks up scandal wherever he goes, and tries his best to take Daisy along for the ride. The crown–and the intriguing Miles–might be trying to make Daisy into a lady . . . but Daisy may just rewrite the royal rulebook to suit herself.
This was a cute, light read about Daisy, a teen from Florida, whose sister is newly engaged to a prince from Scotland.
Daisy’s summer plans are uprooted as she and her family travel to Scotland to stay with her sister in advance of the wedding. This way the families can meet because although Daisy’s sister and the prince have been together for some time, they have kept their families relatively separate. So upon Daisy’s arrival to Scotland, drama ensues with Prince Sebastian, the younger brother of the prince her sister is marrying, and in order to cover it up Daisy has to fake-date Seb’s best friend, Miles.
As I mentioned, Royals is a light and cute read that will certainly have you laugh out loud a few times between Daisy and Miles’s bantering. Daisy is just a fireball of sarcasm and really has her own way of doing things, which I enjoy. Miles is a bit hard to like at first, but as he warms up to Daisy I found myself liking him more. This was a great summer read and I recommend it for anyone looking to get themselves out of a reading slump.
