Prince Charming is the man next door.

Small-town business owner Jason Brewster has big dreams: world travel, adventure, and most of all, a passionate romance worthy of a fairy tale. But he doesn’t believe fantasies can come true….

Until Adam moves in next door.

He’s handsome, cultured, European, and best of all, interested in Jason. It’s like something out of the stories Jason loves.

But Adam—whose real name is Amadeo Montefalcone—has a secret. He's royalty, prince of the small country of Monterosia. Only he doesn't want to rule, and especially doesn't want the loveless marriage waiting for him at home. So he ran away in search of true love. With a man. And with Jason, he finds it.

But Adam can't run forever. The truth will come out. If Jason can forgive Adam’s deception, they might find their happily ever after.

4 Stars!

Jason owns and runs a bookstore and small restaurant specializing in breakfast and lunch. He's a romantic who longs for his own romance. Unfortunately, though, he knows it may not be easy to find in his tiny little town.

Adam is a real-life prince from the small country of Monterosia. He’s next up to be crowned King but has no desire to marry and produce a suitable heir. So with the help of his brother he's able to come to America and go into hiding in order to figure everything out.

I loved Jason, he was adorable and funny and I felt an instant connection to him. I wasn’t so sure about Adam at first he was a bit too “princely” I guess, lol. He definitely grew on me over time though and I enjoyed the chemistry between the two.

This story is full of mythology. I’m a fan so I enjoyed it but in a way, it confused me as to where the story was going to go. Luckily, it fit the storyline and the characters well and lent a very unique angle to everything. There are also a few twists and surprises that helped with keeping me guessing and entertained.

Overall, this was an enjoyable story that I’d recommend to anyone looking for a sweet modern fairytale.
