The Secret Lives of Royals
Olivia can’t take it anymore. She’s had enough of the big city and it’s lack of fulfilling her dreams. Then, just when she’s about to give up and move home, out of the blue, she is offered her dream job. Olivia is suspicious but that could just be the New York in her. She decides not to pull at threads. Despite her best efforts to remain blissfully oblivious, the secret to her life upgrade is soon uncovered when she finds herself invited to be part of a secret society.
Olivia learns that there is a thin curtain separating our world from theirs. Just beneath the surface, an entirely different one exists. One that is controlled by those of Royal lineage. The chosen ones, the Royals, hold the fate of the world in their hands. Will Olivia be able to bear the weight of the crown?
Confessions of a Shopaholic meets The Adjustment Bureau, this contemporary fairytale is both relatable and aspirational. Taking a look at the current balance of media and power with a healthy dose of humor, fashion, food and wanderlust.
This should be a fun, light-hearted read. Sadly, I did not get a taste or experience this during my reading time. The reason is because I found the characters to be muted and the story as well. In fact, I didn't notice that Olivia had two love interest in the beginning. Both men did not stand out in my eyes. Thus you could say that I was not into the romance.
The mystery aspect of the secret society didn't peak my intrigue either. You can say that this whole book kind of missed the mark. This truly is sad as there could have been something there but with lackluster characters; it failed.
