I WILL read ANYTHING THIS WOMAN WRITES I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review I enjoyed McGee s previous series of novels, The Thousandth Floor, and was intrigued to see her take on the alternative history genre with an America ruled by the descendants of King George Washington Unfortunately, I was disappointed This has a lot of froth but no substance, and although the The Thousandth Floor has interesting characters and an overall plot arc, this just doesn t really have anything, with a plot that feels contrived, predictable and just dull The story is divided into several POV, ranging from Princesses Beatrice and Samantha, both struggling with their responsibilities and falling in love with the wrong people, Daphne the ex girlfriend of Prince
I probably enjoyed Beatrice s story the most as it was interesting to see how her life was dictated by her mis fortune of birth as she is heir to the throne and is due to be the first ever ruling queen.

75 5 StarsI m always down for a good royal romance and I definitely did enjoy this one here, even though there were some things that, in my opinion, could have been developed a little better This novel is basically all about the characters feelings which is okay but following four main storylines all about the same thing, romance and relationships, can also become a little boring The characters were all quite interesting but I would have really preferred to have somepages dedicated to actual political royal problems and their resolutions, maybe with some chapters from a general narrator, instead of a specific point of view Overall the characters all had their ups and downs, but my f ¾ American Royals ¾ I went into American Royals hoping it would be better than the author s first book, The Thousandth Floor, but honestly it might have been worse Probably the only thing it has going for it over that one is the one non straight main character doesn t die at the end of the book, but it s only because there isn t one Don t worry though Katherine McGee still loves to make marginalized people have great falls one of the few people of color in this book is a Japanese girl who is in a coma There were zero characters I was rooting for, and the plot was utterly predictable and derivative I don t recommend it.
My Rating 3.
5 Stars Mostly a fun read, imagining a royal family for America and getting an insider s view of how truly human and flawed they are with their rather unroyal behavior behind closed doors and even in the eyes of their people A bit of a soap opera, tangled webs of desire, duty and deceit abound as Katharine McGee takes us into the world of the AMERICAN ROYALS.
From George Washington I to the current day George, there had always been a king, until now when Princess Beatrice is being groomed to be the first queen As her younger brother and sister live their lives in her shadow, the family intrigue grows when hearts become entangled in affairs that can never be allowed.
From the typical sibling squabbles to the fawning deceivers, who can be trusted Some beautifully quirky and fun moments, some heart wrenching moments and moments I received an Advance Reader Copy from the publisher This in no way impacted on my view.
This book was one that I knew as soon as I heard about it that I needed A modern American monarchy, with two sisters dealing with all that entails, and their friends and love interests playing integral roles in their lives Definitely a book for Sophie After the American War of Independence, rather than becoming President, George Washington became the first King, and his descendants still occupy the throne The current Washington king has three children, Crown Princess Beatrice, Princess Samantha, and Prince Jefferson Each of the royal three have their own issues caused by their lofty position, and this book explores how they navigate the turbulent ohmygod i need the next one
