Inhaltsangabe

"Narrator Ramón de Ocampo brings out all the emotion in this tender, serious, funny, and warmly hopeful love story... Listeners will be swept up as Alex and Henry face questions of identity and coming out amid familial duties and political machinations." —AudioFile Magazine

What happens when America's first son falls in love with the prince of Wales?

When his mother became president, Alex Claremont-Diaz was promptly cast as the American equivalent of a young royal. Handsome, charismatic, genius - his image is pure millennial-marketing gold for the White House. There's only one problem: Alex has a beef with the actual prince, Henry, across the pond. And when the tabloids get hold of a photo involving an Alex-Henry altercation, US/British relations take a turn for the worse. 

Heads of family and state and other handlers devise a plan for damage control: staging a truce between the two rivals. What at first begins as a fake, Instragramable friendship grows deeper, and more dangerous, than either Alex or Henry could have imagined. Soon Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret romance with a surprisingly unstuffy Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations and begs the question: Can love save the world after all? Where do we find the courage and the power to be the people we are meant to be? And how can we learn to let our true colors shine through?

Casey McQuiston's Red, White & Royal Blue proves: true love isn't always diplomatic.

Kritikerstimmen

"I took this with me wherever I went and stole every second I had to read! Absorbing, hilarious, tender, sexy - this book had everything I crave. I’m jealous of all the readers out there who still get to experience Red, White & Royal Blue for the first time!" (Christina Lauren, New York Times best-selling author of Love and Other Words and Roomies)

"Red, White & Royal Blue is outrageously fun. It is romantic, sexy, witty, and thrilling. I loved every second." (Taylor Jenkins Reid, author of The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo and Maybe in Another Life)

“Effervescent and empowering on all levels, Red, White & Royal Blue is both a well-written love story and a celebration of identity.” (NPR)

A royal treat for ears and heart

I normally don't write reviews, but for this, I will change that. "Red, White & Royal Blue" was a true treat and I loved every moment of it. The characters and their development, their honesty and rawness made them come to life and I truly enjoyed the way the story went from beginning to end. Rarely have I finished an audio book faster and looked for moments, like breaks at the office, walks to the post office, etc., to continue listening. Casey McQuiston has written a beautiful book whose heroes and heroines are deeply needed in times like these. A book that gives hope that the world can change and that one day, everyone will believe what most of us already do: love is love is love is love. Thank you to Lin-Manuel Miranda, btw.

Loved it!!

I came for the enemies to lovers and stayed for the politics. This story is incredibly intriguing in every aspect, from the more hopeful world McQuiston builds to the romance between the idealist prince of England and the son of the president of the United States.

Fantastic

A very intelligent, at times ebullient and at times tender, well-crafted and satisfying love story. Very interested to see what Casey McQuiston does next.
