His Royal Highness by R.S. Grey
I’ve spent eight years wishing I’d fall out of love with Derek Knightley. Blowing out birthday candles, chasing after shooting stars, making it rain spare change into mall fountains—every time it’s the same wish: forget about Derek.
But the day he walks back into my life, I realize there are two things time has yet to soften: my feelings for him and his chiseled jawline.
It’s infuriating that my heart still races when he walks into a room. I refuse to fall prey to old unrequited love, so I decide the less I’m around him, the better. Avoidance is key.
Unfortunately, Derek isn’t going to make it easy. As a teenager, I would have crawled on my hands and knees to attract his attention. Now I can’t seem to escape it.
I’m not sure why he’s bothering. He’s not just out of my league—he’s out of my tax bracket. As the sole heir to the Knightley Company, he’s as close to American royalty as you can get. As for me, I’m just a part-time princess at Knightley’s flagship magical theme park.
I spend my days playing make-believe, but Derek has no use for fairy tales. His unwavering confidence makes it clear he thinks I’ll surrender in the end.
He’s just biding his time.
Making me sweat.
His Royal Highness always gets what he wants.
And he wants me.

I loved this book!!! I think I felt like a little girl reading a fairy tale story and got to see what happens in the backstage.
McKenna and Derek, our main characters, live and work in a castle. But it’s not just any castle, is THE castle to be for every young kid who wants to meet Princes Elena.
McKenna is Princes Elena and Derek Her Royal Highness.
But let’s back up a bit. We know the McKenna since she’s young and works on the balloon stand. She soon gets into the program of the fair’s management sponsorship and gets accepted.
Derek is her mentor and also the owner’s grandson. He’s 10 years older and soon they develop a friendship / mentor relationship. The fact that McKenna secretly falls for him gets unnoticed because suddenly Derek moves to UK.
Moving forward 8 years and he’s back, but Mckenna is no longer the shy girl he used to know. She’s more of a woman now and Derek has no other choice but notice her.
Only it’s a little too late.
The story was unique and fun and Disney-like in every way.
I freaking loved every word and devoured it whole in one sitting.
Way to go, RS Grey, I looove your books.
