Summary

Rhodes Scholar Kerry Donovan has never had anything handed to her on a silver platter. As she arrives at Oxford to begin her course of study, she is determined to make the most out of this latest opportunity. But when she meets Her Royal Highness Princess Sasha, second in line to the British throne, Kerry’s priorities are eclipsed by an attraction neither of them can ignore.
"Sassy Sasha" is a tabloid favorite who appears to delight in scandalizing her people, but beneath her vexed public image, Sasha longs to be truly seen. Will the tenuous connection she forms with Kerry be broken by the weight of the crown? Or will they find true love despite the forces endeavoring to keep them apart?

A Gallery

It was hard for me to rate this this story, because it is a bit like asking me to rate a picture gallery, where there different works of art present, some are amazing and some are odd, and feel discordant. Overall the story works, and it must have been a heck of a challenge to take on a romance involving royals in the UK, for a writer which is US based. There are only a few places, despite all the extensive research that must have go into this work where it becomes apparent that the writer is not native to the UK (e.g. pounds thrown on the bar). The novel wouldn't have worked without this, as the believably aspect would have been hard to pull off, but for me it worked. And I enjoyed the descriptions of oxford and the studies there, this painted a great picture.

The main issues, are around the start, are are editing problems, repeats, (examples inline) but also tendrils of story does no engage that well at the beginning. Once past this point it's palatable sentences work as fine tendrils. The basic problem I have is that it seems over engineered in places, while others seem to have not been given the same level of attention. This makes the work patchy. Some of the 'monologue' passages are overly lengthy and once I got the understood the tendrils of meaning, I didn't need the remaining words. I also felt there was not enough general interaction between the main characters in dialogue. Mainly for Kerry, who seems to spend a lot of her time just comforting and praising Sasha.

The narration from Victoria Aston is very good, and her accent lends authenticity to the story.

So basically I recommend the story (I rated this 4 in comparison with other f/f romances. where as a lot of my comments are aimed at wanting the author to do a lot more.) . And, I know I'm being verbose in this response, but mostly because this is a talented author, just a bit more on getting the balance 'write'.

Totally implausible but fun fiction

I worry where Kerry got her money exchanged since the UK hasn't used £1notes in 33yrs!
I can't give it 5 having read\heard Carol and Gravity between us, because I know when I'm immersed in an epic book of unfathomable emotion that engrosses me completely, but for a light fluffy pick it up when you want story, 3 because I have also experienced books so disappointing that I regret the purchase entirely.

Nice plot for an HEA

This is a sweet story with the main characters well developed although the secondary characters were 2 dimensional. Formulaic of course but a sufficiently developed plot to make it a good, engaging, even emotional story. Not terribly impressed with the narrator but she did not distract from the story. I guess the best recommendation I can make is that I listened to all of it in one day.

surprisingly enjoyable Lesbian Romance

Where does The Princess Affair rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Breezy, enjoyable Lesbian Romance

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Princess Affair?

Maybe because I have dyslexia myself, and dyslexic family members, but I found Sasha's dyslexia to be a very humanizing touch. Surprisingly for a love story between a princess and Rhode's Scholar, her vulnerabilities because of her learning disability made her very relatable.

What does Victoria Aston bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Her accent and distinct voices

Who was the most memorable character of The Princess Affair and why?

The love story felt sweet and genuine, both characters are likeable people with relatable vulnerabilities.

Any additional comments?

I really didn't expect to enjoy this and find it so sweet as I did.
