You’re a princess. I’m a thief. This isn’t a Disney movie. We never had a chance in hell of a happy ending. But I still wish I could have given you one.
When we met, I had you pegged as a snob. All polo and private jets. But you turned out to be the exact opposite. I fell for you the first day we met.
I lied to you about a lot of things. I don’t expect or deserve your forgiveness. You’re too good for me. But I was always honest about my feelings for you.
I hope you’ll find true happiness one day. That’s the only way I’ll ever be happy—knowing you’re okay.
PS—don’t let your blackjack game go to crap. Practice it every day, all right?
Royal romance is a trend right now, but in order for it to be enjoyable, it has to be done well. And, this one was. You believe in the connection, you believe that there is a romance there, and that even though Charlie is not being totally honest, enough of the truth of who he is, and how he feels, is coming through that Jane is falling in love with who he really is.
And, that is the most important element (aside from the romance, of course) in a romance when one of the characters is lying. You have to believe there is enough of a connection to the real person under the lie that by the time the lie is revealed, the romance is there and it is real. I believed it in this one. Jane and Charlie were getting to know the real people behind the expectations. Both, in a way had a "public" face that they were expected to be, and a private one that they shared with one another.
I enjoyed this title and I recommend this book.
