Piper Evans: elementary school teacher by day–avid romance reader and anonymous podcaster by night. She lives a quiet, reclusive life, taking care of her mother, who struggles with mental illness, avoiding her regrettable ex, who bartends in town, and trying to make inroads in the tight-knit island community that still sees her, five years in, as an outsider.

And she’s happy with how things are–really–until British royals rent the property next to hers and their brooding bodyguard decides she’s a security threat. Piper quickly realizes that one person’s fairy tale is an ordinary woman’s nightmare as a media frenzy takes over the island and each run-in with Harrison Cole is hotter and more confusing than the last. But beneath Harrison’s no-nonsense exterior lies a soft heart, one that could tempt a woman who’s sworn off attachments into believing in white knights.

But when Piper finds herself smack in the middle of a royal scandal that rocks the island she’ll need more than Harrison’s strong arms to shield her–she’ll have to do a little rescuing herself. With careers, hearts, and friendships on the line, Piper and Harrison will have to decide what they’re willing to give up for a chance at their own happily ever after.


Rating: 4 out of 5.

Spoiler Free Review

When schoolteacher Piper Evans discovers that royalty will be moving next door, she doesn’t realize that also includes a grumpy, broody, and very handsome bodyguard, Harrison Cole. While the royals are in town, Piper will be seeing a lot more of the handsome bodyguard. But, while the handsome bodyguard protects royals, Piper doesn’t expect the large and annoying crowd of paparazzi. Let’s hope that handsome Harrison Cole is there to save her. And maybe woo her as well.

I enjoyed The Royals Next Door. It was fantastic, light, and simply adorable. This was exactly what I needed. I gave The Royals Next Door four stars, enjoying the fun, bright, and loving side of Piper and the brooding yet handsome Harrison. I think that they were absolutely perfect for each other and even though they come from completely different worlds, they really fit well together. I loved that Harrison was just a little grumpy and kind of hid his emotions, I feel like it was done so well and I absolutely fell in love with him.

I really enjoyed how royalty was represented in The Royals Next Door. Although I really don’t know anything about royal families, I really enjoyed how friendly the British royal family that rent the house next to Piper’s and how they were so different from what people would usually assume about when it comes to royal families. Although in this circumstance, this is a fictional royal family. Nonetheless, I loved how kind the people and the royal family and really anyone introduced were so kind and friendly.

The Royals Next Door was a cute romance and I’m so glad I got the opportunity to read it. I know for sure that I would own this once it is published.

Thank you again to NetGalley and Berkley for inviting me to read The Royals Next Door and for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
