His name is Royal, but he’s no prince charming. He’s not even a prince - though you could say I loved him once upon a time.
He was my older brother’s best friend.
Growing up, he sat at our dinner table every Sunday, teased me mercilessly, and pretended I annoyed him.
When I was old enough, he took me on my first date.
Royal taught me how to drive. Escorted me to my junior prom. Gave me my first kiss…amongst other things. He was my first taste of toe curling, all-consuming, can’t sleep love.
We had our whole lives ahead of us. There was never anyone else for me but him.
And then he disappeared. No letter. No explanation. Not even a goodbye.
My sisters and brother never forgave him, and my parents forbade me from speaking his name in our house ever again. For all intents and purposes, we were to pretend Royal Lockhart never existed.
I’ve spent the last seven years trying in vain to forget my first love, but just when I think I’ve finally moved on, guess who’s back in town?
Kerry's 3 star reviewOh wow what a rollercoaster of emotion. I'm still trying to process what I actually think about this book. It's heartbreaking I know that for sure but damn your hooked. I read this in under 3 hours as I could not put it down. I wanted to know why Royal was missing that 7 years what could have possibly kept him from Demi the first love of his life? When we find out I could not imagine it being what it was.
If there are more books in this series I would love it to be about one of the twins you can tell that would be a good book. The only reason I gave this book 3 stars was I felt it was very rushed at the end. Once Royal was accepted back into the family it's never really mentioned the 7 year gap. I'm glad this book finished on a happy ending and I would most defiantly read more from this author.
