Release Blitz: Glass Castle Prince by: Nicole Williams (Review & Teasers)

"A glass castle shatters as easily as a glass house—all it takes is one stone.
Prince Edward has known this all of his life, and taken staunch measures to ensure he doesn’t give the public any reason to pick up their rocks. Or torches. Or pitchforks. As a twenty-two-year-old in line to ascend the throne, he lives more like a cloistered monk than his college-aged peers. Restraint is the tone of his life, resilience the theme.
That is, until he meets a young woman who couldn’t care less about his title—unless she’s poking fun at it. Charlotte Everly grew up a stone’s throw away from the royal family’s summer house, but her life was, and is, entirely different from the prince’s.
They clash at each turn, disagree on every topic, and bear a general contempt for one another. Until . . .
One night, accompanied by one proposal, leads to one lapse in judgment . . .
Results in a nationwide scandal neither of them will escape"

My Thoughts:

It is no secret now that I am a big Nicole Williams fan and once again she delivers the swoon. This is not your normal fairy tale and it has some serious The Prince and Me vibes and if you haven’t seen that movie please go rectify that. Charlotte and Edward were both such great characters and you root for this forbidden romance. 

Charlotte was such a feisty character and she just could not care about Edward’s Prince status, honestly she was a tad put off by it, which really just makes for a fun read. Edward though is not at all what you would expect. He isn’t the reckless Prince Charlotte thought, but rather someone who is very aware of his life and surroundings and lack of choices. And in the end it turns out that Edward and Charlotte had quite a bit in common, despite coming from very different worlds and that is when the chemistry started to crackle. 

My favorite thing about this book though was Charlotte’s interactions with Edward’s friends. They all cracked me up because they were all spoiled and never wanted to do things for themselves and Charlotte was having none of that and it was highly amusing. But I also loved how they came to love her and she just became part of the gang. James in particular was HYSTERICAL and I just adored him to bits and pieces and he stole whatever scene he was in. One thing I was not prepared for though was that there was a “I need to practice kissing/etc with you for someone else” aspect to the story and like I was not prepared for that or in the headspace for that and it’s not always my favorite. I kinda like to know going in when this is a plot point because I just have different expectations  and because I didn’t know it was coming I was like WHATTT for a bit. But it is done well and fits the story and kicks the pairing off, I just wasn’t entirely prepared for it… that’s on me though not the book. The ending to this book though was OH SO SWEET and it just puts a smile on your face. Nicole will put your heart through the wringer but she always fixes it in the end in the sweetest and best way.

All in all, Glass Castle Prince is such a quick and fun and swoony read. I loved escaping to this world for a while and would not mind visiting it again.
