A Royal Shade of Blue - by Aven Ellis

Original Cover
My own copy

The blurb: 

When art history student Clementine Jones receives a message complimenting her latest internship project, she doesn’t hesitate to answer it.

She never dreamed that this decision would not only change her life but the future of the British monarchy as well.

Her response leads Clementine to the mysterious CP Chadwick, a British man studying history at Cambridge. Clementine finds CP charming, smart, and unlike any man she’s ever met. Most of all, when she confides her medical past to CP, his perception of her doesn’t change. He doesn’t treat her as fragile like her parents do. CP sees her as normal, which is something she cherishes.

Clementine, however, has no idea that CP is actually Prince Christian of Wales, who has never had a “normal” life. Christian is at a crossroad. His destiny is to be a working royal, but he is desperate to fill that role in his own way. Wary of others, he’s kept himself closed off from the world—until he lets Clementine in.
A royal romance is never a fairy tale, but Clementine and Christian are determined to write their own version. Can they overcome their own fears—as well as the constraints of a royal life—to reach their own happily ever after? 

My Opinion:

*Book provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review* 

Aven Ellis and a royal love story?! YES PLEASE!!!! A Royal Shade of Blue is the author’s first book in the “The Modern Royals” series.

Clementine Jones has been through a lot in her childhood and has an intense medical history. It’s still haunting her, because her family keeps on reminding her. She is passionate about art history and antiques. One day she finds herself chatting the mysterious CP Chadwick on Instagram and they completely hit it off. You can feel their chemistry through their messages and Aven Ellis really captured that wonderfully. Can CP be real though?! Turns out he is actually Price Christian of Wales…

The great thing about their relationship though. She doesn’t see him as a prince and her treats her different than her family, he sees her medical past in a different light. They fall quickly, when they actually see
For the first time, things move fast. It’s them though and I just think they are so cute with each other. 

Christian is not a typical prince, but meeting Clem finally makes him show his real side and interests. Back in England, Clem tries to start a new life and meets his family. It’s nerve-wracking and weird. Christian’s father King Arthur is warm and kind, whereas his wife Queen Antonia is awful and mean. Celementine also meets Christian’s brothers Xander and James, as well as his cousins Isabella, Liz and Victoria. Life in London is not easy, especially after paparazzi start chasing her and she wants to please the family. Christian however, has his own opinion about Clem’s freedom. I love his brothers and cousins and I can’t wait for them to get their own story, we got a little hint already ;). 

This story is something new for Aven Ellis. She has stayed true to her writing style and made the royal thing her own. I think she did a marvellous job and I loved every second of this book. It’s fresh, new, exciting, gripping, vivid and full of so many great details. Aven Ellis just has a gift for capturing feelings and emotions in such an authentic, passionate and real way. 

There is also plenty of humour in this book and I the scenes and moments in this book are just so adorable. I love the characters so much and I just love that Aven Ellis decided to start a royal series!!!

About the Author

I live in the Dallas area with my family. I enjoy clipping out recipes I will never get around to trying, working out, and chatting with friends on social media. I’m a hockey nut (Go Stars!) and watch as much as humanly possible. I also love shopping and fashion and admit to being obsessed with whatever the Duchess of Cambridge is wearing. In addition to be obsessed with the Duchess, I’m equally obsessed with any show or cookbook featuring Gordon Ramsay.
