It’s more than a culture clash when an American tourist meets a Special Forces soldier at the British Museum.
Joel McIntyre’s life is going nowhere, fast. Since breaking up with his ex, he’s oversleeping and always late. To top it all off, now he’s in danger of losing his job.
All he wants to do is enjoy his European vacation with his family. He has no time for romance. But a missed flight and a layover at Heathrow with a handsome soldier upends his life.
After returning home for the first time in years, Freddie d’Pierrepont finds that it is a mixed bag. And when his brother reveals he’s ill, the familial pressure really mounts.
Having a vacation fling was one thing, but you don’t just turn your life upside-down for a guy you met on holiday. Especially when you’re keeping a royal secret.
Can Joel and Freddie excavate true love from the ruins of their complicated lives?

Jilting narration, implausible story line.
I was hoping for a good book, and while this book keep me interested until the end, narration was jilted and stopped often in the middle of a line. the accents well good didn’t make sense to the character he spoke. Why would a European Royal sound like a Derry dock worker. I think the most challenging part of the book what is the implausible storyline of a squared away muscled up British special forces soldier fall for a caterwaiter in the middle of an airport then the whole mysterious prince thing comes into play then. It would have worked better if they met in the military. One US and the other not and developed a relationship built over time. Grant is an excellent narrator but the stop and go was odd.

Roman Holiday vibes, in a fantasy European kingdom
Fairytale romance, a bit of gun play, and two lovely chaps navigating tricky family situations, social pressures and their own demons. That all sounds really heavy, but it's not. A good fun romp.
A word of warning for British listeners, this is an American book with an American reader. He does a pretty good job but the not great English accents jar initially. Stick with it though, because the one that jarred the most makes sense very soon and it's fine because...well, no spoilers.
Also have to note that the author is a friend and gifted me the book. Thank Kyle.
