Harry and Megan got nothing on This

Great love story! I enjoyed it very much. I do think she could have less sexual references or scenes, but it's not a negative. I would love to see a film version of this. It would be great. Awesome performances by the voice actors especially the woman. She sounds like Regina Hall but better. Love the sassy class she brought to Dani. She brought the character to life. So glad I picked up this book. It was Steamy, Hot, Endearing, and beautiful. A Modern Day Romance Indeed. ❤️❤️❤️👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾😍🔥👍🏾

Great story but..,

Great story; however, the narrator who did the voice of the Prince when he recounted some of the things that Dutchess was saying gave her a southern accent and clearly she was not southern and the young lady that narrated Dutchess’s part didn’t speak that way so it was a little offputting otherwise I liked the story line.

A Great Leading Lady with a Lackluster Leading Man

I was in the fourth grade before I settled on a career goal that wasn't princess, which is probably why as a general rule, I tend to enjoy books with royalty and commoners even though my logical brain doesn't really love the idea of a monarchy. Unfortunately, even with the basis that I should have enjoyed American Royalty and with the absolutely enthralling first 40%, the book just failed to live up to its promise for me. And I should have known that I wasn't going to wind up buying the romance from the beginning because even before Jamison and Dani meet, I already hated the way he watched her music videos and formed this idea of her in his head and objectified the hell out of her. And at the end of the day, Dani is such an incredible character that I genuinely wanted like a whole book just about her taking over the world and wanted Jamison to like... disappear. I didn't care to where. But Jamison's life is obviously complicated because, well, he's a Royal. Only, I don't care about Jamison's complicated life because he never seemed to want to be a royal so all of the obligations and trappings were much less interesting to me than Dani because she has actual goals and wants and desires and I wanted to watch her take over the world.

Nope

I tried but chapter 4 is as far as I could go with this one. I am a guge fan of Wesleigh, but even she couldn't save this one for me. Returning for my credit back.

Love the story, can't wait to see what's next for them. I anticipate that there's going to be a part two to this story.

Mind Blown.

After reading all the positive reviews, I decided to purchase this book. And I'm glad that I did. Wesleigh is one of my favorite narrators, so I expected her to to do a great job. It took me a while to warn up to Anthony, but he did an great job as well. This was a great storyline with 2 people from different worlds but yet similar. The chemistry between these two were phenomenal. Jameson is such the gentleman. Only thing I did not like was that ending could have been a little bit better tho. But I'm looking forward to reading more of Tracey's books.

Narrators good enough; story memorable, but ...

★★★ 1/2
So, if you like royal romance and you can erase your preset memory of who’s who in the British Royalty, Inc., then you may like this one.

The British Royal family has all new names, the names aren’t very British either. That took some seconds to get over, but the scandal, history of abdication, British Royal men running off with unsuitables or doing unsuitable deeds are all loosely replicated. Plus the queen is in charge, as the last “old world” royal; her husband has passed, his memory being a driving force in this novel.

Through all of that, Prince Jameson, the hero of this story, has escaped the terrible spotlight left by his father and the scandals that circle his aunts and uncles, and we meet him as a philosophy professor in Birmingham.

The British Royalty is now suffering the always present threat of “abolish the monarchy” and the need to stay relevant (very plausible) and Jameson’s grandmother, the queen, has dubbed Jameson as a hopeful face of the crown. She wrangles Jameson into arranging a tribute week-long celebration, synonymous with the real life Queen’s Jubilee that just happened, where the queen’s late husband is honored with a concert of his favorite artists, accompanied by a young artists component for PR reasons.

Jameson goes into it half-heartedly, and somehow he is inadvertently responsible for the inclusion of Danielle Nelson, a female rapper who goes by Duchess, in the festivities.

For the most part the heroine, Danielle Nelson, Dani, is the character whose conflict shapes the story. While Jameson’s conflict becomes solely his interest in Dani, when he finds himself in forced proximity with her, his inner conflict about his responsibilities to the monarchy recedes into the background; meanwhile, Dani has to contend with a rival of sorts and social media, which try to tear down her success and image; Dani also is written as a self-made: a black female artist who is an entrepreneur battling being over-sexualized and underestimated (kind of overdone and cliche, but it worked for at least half of the book).

Overall, Dani remains strong but the blows keep piling on, despite them being partly because of her own decisions. Jameson also shows strong moments when it comes to wanting to “be” with Dani, and this is what is endearing about him. After the initial dislike between the two, Jameson shows great appreciation for the Dani he realizes is underneath all the glamor and hot press. the romance developed between Dani and Jameson is daring, it is hot in the way that the steam builds unexpectedly; for instance, there are scenes I kept thinking about after reading.

The ending is less than tight because the conflicts weren’t solved very satisfyingly, and the HFN that is hinted at. But overall, not a bad read.
