Millie Quint is devastated when she discovers that her sort-of-best friend/sort-of-girlfriend has been kissing someone else. Heartbroken and ready for a change of pace, Millie decides to apply for scholarships to boarding schools . . . the farther from Houston the better. Soon, Millie is accepted into one of the world's most exclusive schools, located in the rolling highlands of Scotland. Here, the country is dreamy and green; the school is covered in ivy, and the students think her American-ness is adorable. The only problem: Mille's roommate Flora is a total princess. She's also an actual princess. Of Scotland. At first, the girls can't stand each other, but before Millie knows it, she has another sort-of-best-friend/sort-of-girlfriend. Princess Flora could be a new chapter in her love life, but Millie knows the chances of happily-ever-afters are slim . . . after all, real life isn't a fairy tale . . . or is it?--Amazon.ca.

It's good for some fluff; refreshing to see more queer books able to use all the tropes familiar in romance.

I couldn't even get past the third chapter. It reads like a published Wattpad novel. If you want a fluff read like other reviews have said go ahead but otherwise, there's other wlw books.

All I can say is that this book is super freaking cute. You won’t regret reading it, but don’t expect anything more than a fluffy read.

What I liked:
- the slow build romance; from hate to friends to love. MY HEART.
- Female/female romance FOR THE WIN
- And they were rOoMaTeS
- Royalty and a gothic castle/boarding school in the Scottish Highlands - so Hogwarts-esque I loved it.

What I didn’t quite like:
-Millie Quint is a good main character, but she judges or highlights a person’s looks. She also compares how pretty/attractive someone is to other people, etc. She just constantly would say something along the lines of ‘she was mean but she could do it coz she was pretty’ or ‘she still looked like a goddess when she...’ it got annoying.
- I wanted more in terms of their relationship. It ends quite abruptly.
- Did the characters have different personalities? One will never know. They read quite similar.
- We get it, you’re sassy.
- Emotional connections please!!!!!! If the story focused more on that aspect it would be a five star read!

I enjoyed reading this book, and its prequel, the Royals. You don't really need to read the Royals first though, since only the last chapter of this second book really pertained to Royals.
As an American, I have never known much about the British royals (or any royalty!), and have found these books fascinating to learn about their lavish lifestyles.
The Royals did surprise me, however, because I am not used to reading a novel with characters who are gay, bi, trans-, or other preferences. This second book by Rachel Hawkins is narrated by the main character who reveals early in the book that she is a girl who likes girls. I continued to read the book b/c I did enjoy it, and I figured that it would help me to understand the emotional aspect of living an alternative lifestyle.
Light romance between two girls, nothing too intense in this book, but it was a new experience for this married (to a guy!) old lady!

I didn't read the first book to this series and from my point of view it stands well as it's own novel.
It's your typical fluffy YA romance with the theme of someone in the general public falling for royalty and the complications they face throughout it.
I liked the characters and I found the main ones to be rather dynamic. I also really liked the setting and I found the author did a good job detailing what things seemed like through the eyes of the protagonist.

All in all it was a light book that I enjoyed. :)
