Life is real enough for Dylan—especially as the ordinary younger sister of Dusty, former Miss Mississippi and the most perfect, popular girl in Tupelo. But when Dusty wins the hand of the handsome Scottish laird-to-be Ronan on the TRC television network’s crown jewel, Prince in Disguise, Dylan has to face a different kind of reality: reality TV.
As the camera crew whisks them off to Scotland to film the lead-up to the wedding, camera-shy Dylan is front and center as Dusty’s maid of honor. The producers are full of surprises—including old family secrets, long-lost relatives, and a hostile future mother-in-law who thinks Dusty and Dylan’s family isn’t good enough for her only son. At least there’s Jamie, an adorably bookish groomsman who might just be the perfect antidote to all Dylan’s stress . . . if she just can keep TRC from turning her into the next reality show sensation.
I love this book so, so much and it might just be my new favorite thing ever.
It has witty banter.
It has relatable and funny characters.
It has reality T.V. craziness.
It has a prince in disguise.
It has all the swoons.
I don’t know why it wasn’t on my radar, but once I read the summary, I immediately bought it and when it arrived, I immediately started reading it.
You’re not going to find and crazy twists and turns in this one, it’s incredibly predictable, but you won’t even care! What you will find is one of the sweetest YA romances around. It is so smartly written, with so many fun pop culture and classic literature references, and if you’re like me, you’ll find yourself laughing every few pages!
From the very beginning, the chemistry between Dylan and Jamie just pulled me in. They just connected on this super nerdy level that I appreciated immensely. Dylan is stuck in what might be considered her personal hell… her sister’s reality T.V. wedding and with cameras everywhere she just knows all the awkward moments of her life are going to be magnified. She doesn’t expect to find a kindred soul in Jamie… the guy who rescued her from freezing to death at the train station.
The secondary characters were so fun too – Ronan, Dusty, Kit, & Heaven… I couldn’t get enough of them!
If you’re a fan of light-hearted, swoon filled contemporary… this is the book for you. It’s got a permanent place on my favorites shelf and I definitely plan to do an annual reread!
