Like most royal families, the Washingtons have an heir and a spare. Each child knows exactly what is expected of them. But these aren’t any royals. They are American. As Princess Beatrice gets closer to becoming America’s first queen regnant, the duty she has embraced her entire life suddenly feels stifling. Nobody cares about the spare except when she’s breaking the rules, so Princess Samantha doesn’t care much about anything, either . . . except for the one boy who is distinctly off-limits to her. And then there’s Samantha’s twin, Prince Jefferson. Most of America adores their devastatingly handsome prince . . . but two very different girls are vying to capture his heart.
American Royals was a very interesting concept from the very first page – diving into the thought of “what if America had a royal family?”. While yes, I have to say, that concept did interest me (especially considering how different it would be from the current American realm of politics), there was not much else that piqued my interest. But, throughout reading American Royals I could not help but notice that drama (drama in the likes of what reality television and Gossip Girl shows), remained prevalent throughout the whole story – and to be honest, it just seemed like, at times, the plot seemed to move at a snails pace – at times, focusing on the drama to move it along.
