The Heir and the Spare by Emily Albright | Book Review

The Heir and the Spare by Emily Albright 

Reading Group: High School+

Personal Rating:  5 out of 5 Stars

Given Summary: Going all the way to England for college--to Oxford, no less--for college would be exciting enough. But no sooner does Evie set foot on English soil than she falls for a boy who turns out to be a real prince--in fact, second in line to the throne of England. Edmund is wonderful, even though loving him can be a royal pain, from the demands of his family to the stuck-up aristocrat who thinks she should be the one to win Edmund's heart. All that is swept aside, however, when the riddle of Evie's past surfaces, and the new couple becomes obsessed with figuring out who the real Evie is, with the growing suspicion that the truth will be a shocker.

Cover: The cover of this book is the union jack design and I personally think it is very pretty.  If you look closely there are little designs in the blue parts that are kind of hard to make out.  I don't know what they all are, but there is Big Ben so maybe they represent all of the different places she visited while she was on her mother's quest.

My Review: I loved this story.  I thought it was super cute and such a nice read.  I liked how you knew that Evie was an heir but you didn't know what she was the heir of or how she would find it out.  I personally like knowing the ending or big surprise of the story, so this book was great because I knew what was going to happen, I just didn't know how it would come about.  The only thing that kind of bothered me was that Evie kind of refused to admit that she and Edmund were a thing.  I understand that he was also hesitant, but he didn't want her to be effected by his status and have to deal with the paparazzi.  I just felt like that if I was her I definitely wouldn't be going on dates with other boys, but I still liked those parts of the book it was just that I was thinking 'Come on Evie, stop being so clueless' the whole time.  For Evie this story was one transition after another I can understand how at the end she thought it was all too much and wanted to quit, but I am so happy she didn't.  The friends she made that year at school were friends she was going to have forever.  Plus, who would want to give up Edmund and her numerous properties she acquired.  Yes, there was drama and a jealous ex, but that could happen anywhere so it's not like she could just run away from that.  Life throws curve balls some times and we just have to play our best and get through it.
