#BookReview #Giveaway: Royally Roma (The Royals #1) by @TeriWilsonauthr

 
In this charming, modern retelling of the classic Audrey Hepburn film Roman Holiday, a royal prince tries to escape his hectic and rigid life and ends up leading a young graduate student on a chase through the Eternal City.

Julia Costa is too busy trying to complete her PhD while also holding down a full-time job as a private tour guide in Rome to keep up with celebrity gossip. So when she crosses paths with a real, actual prince, she mistakes him for a client and takes him on a daylong tour of the city.

Intrigued by the idea of spending time with someone who obviously has no idea who he is, and delighted at the prospect of a day free of royal obligations, Niccolo La Torre, Crown Prince of Lazaretto, acts on impulse and assumes the role of Julia’s client. He swears to himself that he’ll return to his royal duties after only half a day…but he’s having the time of his life.

Until Julia presents him with the bill. Since he snuck out of the hotel without so much as a dime, he tries to escape, only to discover that she won’t let him out of her sight until he can pay her back. She’s determined to get her money…and perhaps more from the handsome stranger she’s fallen for.

I'm sad to say that this one was pretty cheese and had insta-love. But the story redeems these things in spades.  This was a great retelling of Roman Holiday, and I just couldn't put it down.  Parts of the story were fairly filled with the chesse but it made the story light, funny, and fun.  This book has wonderful descriptions that made the city come alive and engaging characters. The author did a wonderful job with making you feel what they feel and expereince what they experience. This was one book that although it does have its flaws it was still awesome.
