“We had taken some blows, self-inflicted and otherwise, and somehow emerged unbroken — forged in fire, fiercely in love, and ready to fight..”
Thank you, thank you, thank you to Grand Central Publishing for gifting me a copy of THE HEIR AFFAIR by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan.
“After a scandalous secret turns their fairy-tale wedding into a nightmare, Rebecca “Bex” Porter and her husband Prince Nicholas are in self-imposed exile. The public is angry. The Queen is even angrier. And the press is salivating. Cutting themselves off from friends and family, and escaping the world’s judgmental eyes, feels like the best way to protect their fragile, all-consuming romance.
But when a crisis forces the new Duke and Duchess back to London, the Band-Aid they’d placed over their problems starts to peel at the edges. Now, as old family secrets and new ones threaten to derail her new royal life, Bex has to face the emotional wreckage she and Nick left behind: with the Queen, with the world, and with Nick’s brother Freddie, whose sins may not be so easily forgotten — nor forgiven.”
So, before I got started, I want to tell you that if you have not yet read The Royal We then I ask you to please, not read THE HEIR AFFAIR yet. You will miss out on so much build-up to everything that happens in the sequel.
Now, I loved The Royal We, it was everything that my recently obsessed with the Royal Family heart could handle but y’all, this sequel, takes the cake. I loved everything about THE HEIR AFFAIR. For all of you that waited five long years for this sequel, it will be worth it and you will love every salacious, gossipy, heartfelt moment in this book. Based on the synopsis, I wasn’t entirely sure how I would feel going into reading this one but it was perfection.
I had so many laugh out loud moments (mainly at Gaz’s expense) and then I shed countless tears. There were some very real moments nestled within the pages of this book — I would like to give a trigger warning for pregnancy loss, if you have any concerns about reading the sequel, please message me so we can chat. I truly felt such real emotions while reading this story and I did not expect to have any of them. In the 464 pages of this novel, I became so incredibly attached to the characters (including The Queen) that I genuinely did not want this book to end.
I’m looking at you Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan and saying that I think there needs to be a third book. I just don’t think that my heart could handle not having more from Bex, Nick, Freddie, The Queen, Calla, Gaz, and Lacey.. oh and we can’t forget the always lovable Bea.
