not only did a very cool American become part of The Firm, she and her royal husband also left The Firm withflair than even the most imaginative among us could ve dreamt up What A World The Heir Affair is just as dishy as its predecessor It s wild to think how much things have changed since Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan published the first book in this series Back in 2015, the idea of an American marrying into the royal family was the stuff of wishful fan fiction it s now 2020, and not only did a very cool American become part of The Firm, she and her royal husband also left The Firm withflair than even the most imaginative among us could ve dreamt up What A World The Heir Affair is just as dishy as its predecessor, and personally, I liked the storylines in this one even better The drama level was at an 11 I kept internally and sometimes externally screaming at some of the storylines , and in these dark times, I was 100% here for it Where I had my misgivings about Bex and Nick as a couple in The Royal We, I came to really love them both in this sequel, and we also got to seethree dimensional sides ofpeoplle in their orbit.My only real issue with this book is the same problem I had with The Royal We It could stand to be 100 pages shorter But honestly, we re in the middle of a global pandemic as I write this, and I think we could all use an extra 100 pages of high key drama and escapism Not to mention, if the past six months of watching the royal family shit itself have shown us anything, it s that often the truth is even stranger than fiction This was the best sequel I ve ever read The characters were beautifully consistent even as they grew and took on new adventures and I savored every moment of being back with Bex, Nick, Freddie and the whole gang Also, side note a certain baseball chapter absolutely brought me to the happiest of tears After the tumultuous Royal Wedding That Was, Bex and Nick are in hiding Hiding from the angry public, who feel betrayed by Bex the Scoundrel, and hiding from the wrath of the Queen But you can t run from your family, and you can t run forever, and so Bex and Nick slap a band aid on their fragile romance and start their return to public life Can they make it Do they even want to While I adored The Royal We, I liked this one even better Bex is forced to adapt to her out and open relationship After the tumultuous Royal Wedding That Was, Bex and Nick are in hiding Hiding from the angry public, who feel betrayed by Bex the Scoundrel, and hiding from the wrath of the Queen But you can t run from your family, and you can t run forever, and so Bex and Nick slap a band aid on their fragile romance and start their return to public life Can they make it Do they even want to While I adored The Royal We, I liked this one even better Bex is forced to adapt to her out and open relationship with Nick and handling the aftermath of the previous book s revelations, and she discovers what it means to be a royal Duchess who has royally pissed off the queen.Speaking of Eleanor, she really took the lead in this book Once again, Bex s relationship with Nick falls to the backside while paradoxically being at the forefront as she and the Queen begin what has got to be the weirdest relationship in the entire world I loved it, and I loved Eleanor, despite her beingwell, the Queen of England and absolutely one of the Worst People in the Word.And I loved how Bex handled her relationship with Eleanor that silent stand off was fucking hilarious The brass balls of reading a Playboy magazine and clicking a pen for fifteen minutes straight in the presence of the Queen of England is justwow.Anywho, in this one Bex navigates life as a Duchess, with the help of her friends her friends whose trust she needs to win back after the secrets of the first book I still love Gaz who is just precious , but Lady Bollocks takes the win in this book She s just utterly fantastic, and I love how ruthless and competent she is in keeping everything together Binders upon binders upon binders.Upon returning from self imposed exile, Bex and Nick are given Eleanor s late sister s suites to live in Georgina s life is an allegory for Princess Margaret, and she s depicted as a hoarder, partier and heavy smokerwho also has an illicit Sex Den basement hidden in her closet But there isto Georgina than Bex ever imagined, and as she and Nick go through the late princess s many possessions, they begin to realize that the Royal Family s royal secrets are darker than they ever could have imagined.So that s a super cryptic way of putting it, but I really don t want to give anyspoilers away.Shit goes dooooooooown.Let s just say that this one tugged my heartstrings in multiple directions, that I still want to kill Clive, that Freddie is always and forever 1, and that I am ride or die for KingIdrisEbla.Oh, and go Cubs I received this ARC from NetGalley for an honest review Well, Bex and Nick barely managed to get married in the first book, The Royal We,but the scandal that came before their wedding caused the couple to flee The couple are commoner Rebecca Porter and Prince Nicholas, now Duke and Duchess They manage to spend a couple of months in exile, a decision of their own choosing Everyone else in the royal family, however, must deal with the ugly aftermath of the events that occurred before the wedding.After a call that rather terrifies Nick, they fle Well, Bex and Nick barely managed to get married in the first book, The Royal We,but the scandal that came before their wedding caused the

royal family, however, must deal with the ugly aftermath of the events that occurred before the wedding.After a call that rather terrifies Nick, they flee back to the castle and literally everything begins to crumble around them Secrets of old might just be enough to completely unravel the family s future Meanwhile, Bex and Nick must deal with his brother Freddie, their father and their grandmother, the Queen.I loved the first book in this series, but this one hit me in a different level There were a lot of powerful family dynamics in this book The various relationships and emotions were a prominent part of The Heir Affair Their issues were so powerful and really gave me pause Forgiveness was key in this book, as well as what true love is and the exploration of soul mates.I absolutely adored all the various characters in this book not only Bex and Nick, and of course, Freddie, but also Bex s twin sister, Lacey, Prince Dick, who really had to step up in this book, the grandmother, Queen Eleanor, who I absolutely adored, and even the Queen mother and her love of the internet The evolution of situations and emotions in this book was handled remarkably well Lastly, I loved a character we only met via recounting the past, Georgina What a well rounded book bringing all of these characters together.I am a die hard fan of continuity, and so I read the first book last month I really don t think readers would get the full impact of this book without reading The Royal WeThe two go hand in hand So, if you like reading about royal families, albeit fictionalized, then this book and series are for you.Many thanks to Forever and to NetGalley for this ARC for review This is my honest opinion RTC close or on release date I like to think of myself as a modern woman, with modern, high minded notions of femininity, sex, and relationships Someone who s long since disabused herself of idealistic, archaic ideas like having a soulmate, living happily ever after, and needing a man to be happy In layman s terms, I m a strong, independent woman who don t need no man but wouldn t terribly mind having one so long as he doesn t affect my work But make no mistake, if Oscar Isaac suddenly woke up one morning, no longer I like to think of myself as a modern woman, with modern, high minded notions of femininity, sex, and relationships Someone who s long since disabused herself of idealistic, archaic ideas like having a soulmate, living happily ever after, and needing a man to be happy In layman s terms, I m a strong, independent woman who don t need no man but wouldn t terribly mind having one so long as he doesn t affect my work But make no mistake, if Oscar Isaac suddenly woke up one morning, no longer wanting to be with his beautiful wife, and asked me to run away with him, you can bet your ass that I wouldn t hesitate before fucking off into the sunset with him, career be damned Hey A modern woman I may be, but I still have needs Nobody s perfect Hannah Montana MeAll that is my way of saying that I m a sucker for a good Cinderella story, whether Prince Charming is an actual prince, just a duke or other lowly royal, a heartthrob rockstar, or a famous actor And so it s not hard to believe that I was head over heels for the first book in the series, The Royal We Even though I only just discovered it this year, I couldn t wait to get my paws on the sequel It did not disappoint.The Heir Affair picks up right where The Royal We left off, with Bex and Nick as newlyweds on their honeymoon, hiding out from the world and the fallout from former friend Clive s expos about Freddie aka Nick s lil bro and The Spare and Bex copulating behind Nick s back which, in case you don t remember, is only kinda true, but not really at all But before you can say royal cuckhold, Nick and Bex are tricked into coming out of hiding by the Queen and, back to reality, are forced to confront everything they ve been dodging since the wedding.Like the first book in the series, the sequel also spans a period of many years in Nick and Bex s relationship and is chock full of drama, just of a different breed This is very much a story about what happens after the happily ever after, especially when that happily ever after hasn t started off on the happily est of notes If you re like me and weren t a huge fan of the whole Freddie Bex Nick love triangle subplot love triangles are sooo 2008 , you ll probably be disappointed to know that that subplot has not worked itself out but has instead been promoted to major plot status in the sequel Bygones are not let be bygones, the hatchet has not been buried, the water is not under the bridge, etc The whole sequel seems to revolve around the aftermath of that one moment of weakness in some way or another, in both big and small ways There were a lot of uncomfortable moments, and it definitely got repetitive and a bit nauseating, especially since I didn t like the storyline to begin with.We also see a lot less of Bex and Nick s Oxford friends, as well as Bex s twin sister, Lacey what a fantastic name, if I do say so myself , in the sequel than we did in The Royal We, which is a damn shame considering Lady Bollocks is like Sarah Silverman, only British and actually funny But, on the bright side, less time with friends leaves us withtime for the Queen and the Queen Mother, who both turned out to be the hidden gems of the sequel, in my humble opinion.All in all, The Heir Affair doesn t disappoint, though it does have its disappointing moments, not unlike The Royal We I liked the first book better, but I didn t expect not to rarely are sequels ever as good as their predecessors not to mention the fact that it s much easier to fall in love with a book about falling in love than it is to love a book about the everyday humdrum of being and staying in love Nevertheless, I finished the book happy with it for what it was, and I think other fans of the first book will come to love its sequel, too.Brief aside The scene where the Queen, Queen Mother, Bex, and Lacey watch the Cubs win the World Series and, by extension, all the Bex Queen Queen Mother baseball moments was a major highlight for me and was such a joy to read It really brought me right back to being in Wrigleyville on that historic night, capturing all the highs and lows of that final game with all the excitement and anxieties that came along with it LISTEN HERE I can t even begin to tell you how much I loved the first book, much less how many times I ve reread it I don t have free time not because I m a busy person, but because I spend most of it rereading the The Royal We anyways Freddie Bex Nick I m invested in their lives, thankyouverymuch, and now I get to be eveninvested in them Seriously though, this book sounds and fingers crossed it is like it s going to befocused on Freddie who s one of my favourite characters LISTEN HERE I can t even begin to tell you how much I loved the first book, much less how many times I ve reread it I don t have free time not because I m a busy person, but because I spend most of it rereading the The Royal We anyways Freddie Bex Nick I m invested in their lives, thankyouverymuch, and now I get to be eveninvested in them Seriously though, this book sounds and fingers crossed it is like it s going to befocused on Freddie who s one of my favourite characters In summary, I just KNOW it s going to be 5 stars, and will be placing myself in an artificial coma until 2020 Thank you
