Featured Review: My Best Friend Prince Charming (Cindy Ray Hale)

41zs71EPBbL

About this book:

They were best friends. He’s always wanted more. Will his newfound fame destroy them?

Shannon

Ryker and I have been best friends since third grade. We were the poor kids in the school, but that didn’t matter. We always had each other. And we had big plans to get scholarships and make something out of our lives. But now he’s been discovered by a big time Hollywood film director who wants to cast him as Prince Charming in an upcoming production of Cinderella.

Our college plans have been flushed down the toilet overnight, and now Ryker’s become famous with a ridiculous amount of money coming his way.

Thanks to the paparazzi, girls are swarming him both in person and online. And Ryker seems to love every minute of it. It’s so annoying.

I feel like I’m losing my best friend in the worst way possible, and I’m starting to wonder if maybe I’ve been lying to myself about my feelings for Ryker for a long time.

A cute and fun romp.

What’s better than a Hollywood romance between a rising star and the quiet girl next door? When she’s also his best friend. For most of Shannon’s life, she hasn’t thought she was worth much. Growing up the daughter of a father who abandoned her affected the way she saw the world, pushing her into a bad relationship simply because she didn’t think she deserved more.
When her best friend is discovered by a Hollywood director, it forces her to come to terms with feelings she hasn’t let herself had for fear that one day he’d leave her as well.

What I loved:
This book is adorable. From cover to plot, it’s a quick and fun read with engaging writing and easy to root for leads. Ryker is SUCH a good guy, the kind of friend few are lucky to have. It’s impossible not to cheer him on as he’s chased by paparazzi, befriending Hollywood starlets, and facing a future he’d never imagined.
Told in alternating points of view, the reader is taken into the minds of both Shannon and Ryker, getting the full picture of why these two belong together despite jealousies, ex boyfriends, and sudden changes in status.
The most impressive part of the book though is Shannon’s growth from a girl who blames her mother for her parents divorce even though it was her father who cheated to a young woman who begins to see that both she and her mom deserve to be treated with respect and love.

What was just okay:
Not much. This book was pretty solid end to end. There’s the onus on the reader to suspend disbelief a bit with the Hollywood parts of the story, but once you manage that, the rest of the story is a pleasant trip.

Final Verdict:
A fun and adorable trip though young love that reminds us everyone deserves to be treated well and we should never settle for less.
