Surprise! I’m a prince.

As the heir to the throne of a small country, I was shocked when my younger sister decided to leave her royal life behind and move to America. Like any good big brother would, I started digging to see what she was up to.

Somewhere along the way, I found myself chatting with the woman of my dreams on a new dating app. She’s smart. She’s funny. And she’s about to get out of the Marines after serving for eight years.

The only problem is, she doesn’t know I’m a prince.

Now I’ve come to America to tell her, under the guise of visiting my sister for the holidays. Hopefully she doesn’t freak out.

Book Review:

I have been waiting for this book and it did not disappoint! A Royal Christmas for the Marine was such a fun Christmas romance. It is the fourth book in Jess Mastorakos’ rom-com series, First Comes Love series. It was a lovely sweet romance. 

Maya and Theo were wonderful to read about. Maya was a Marine who was trying to figure out what to do with her life. She was trying to learn more about herself and be a person that could help others. Maya was so much fun to read about. I loved how she spoke her mind and didn’t shy away from hard things. But she could also be vulnerable and she was looking for a place to call her own. Maya had to figure out if she what she was willing to sacrifice to be with Theo

Theo was a prince but he was so much more than that. I liked how he understood that he was a prince but he was also trying to find the balance of being himself. He loved his people and he wanted to serve them well but he also was learning about himself. I adored his relationship with Zara and his assistant. Theo was so sweet and it was cute how he was able to be himself around Maya. However, Theo had to learn what it meant to love Maya and have her in his life. 

I always love finding new royalty romance books to read and this one was a hit. The characters were so fun and I really enjoyed their banter. Theo was a great prince, and I loved how he communicated with Maya. Maya was a force to be reckoned with, I loved her fierceness and her fearlessness. Maya and Theo had a connection, their romance felt real and not rushed. I really like the way Mastorakos wrote about their relationship. 

The side characters were a lot of fun and they really added to the book. One of my favorite things about this book was the conversations. The characters’ banter did not feel stilted, but instead full of life. I felt as if I was getting to know the characters as I read.The book was really interesting and I did not want to put it down. It didn’t feel slow or boring. The characters were facing everyday life and yet I was intrigued about how everything was going to turn out. 

I loved this book! A Royal Christmas for the Marine is a must read, I think it may be my favorite from this series. I read it in one day, it was that good. A Royal Christmas for the Marine is a clean royalty romantic comedy. 

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book which I received from the author. All views expressed are only my honest opinion, I was not required to write a positive review.
