Daisy Winters is tossed into the royal life of glamour and paparazzi when her sister becomes engaged to the prince of Scotland. While everyone is worried about her making a scandal, it’s all she can do to keep up with the Royal Wreckers, a group of misfits and troublemakers that include the prince’s younger brother and his posh friends.
I loved this! The Royal Wreckers were a hoot, albeit the fact they drew chaos like flies to………you know. The imagery used to describe the Scottish Highlands was spot on, and the characters themselves had depth and a purpose behind each one. Even though I went in to this expecting a full-on teenage romance, it was subtle. Subtle works for this. I hope there is a sequel or a series to this in the future, because I am dying to see more of that chaotic royal family.
Characters That Stood Out:
Daisy: Hilarious! Her voice was that of a teenager, but without being a weird, whiny, single-minded way. If that makes sense. I loved her strength, her quirkiness, and most definitely her sense of humor throughout.
Miles: He reminds me of a duke from any romance novel I’ve ever read. Polite, quiet, steadfast, honorable, and sexy in his own muted way. Little hearts are floating around me.
Sebastian: That boy was reckless, obnoxious, and yet strangely endearing. I hope he gets his own book, because I see so much more to him and I would love to see him have his own happily-ever-after.
Ellie: I wanted to smack her half the time. She has no backbone for anything other than criticizing Daisy on how she needs to do things better. I wasn’t a fan of her until the end, even then she was simply tolerable.
