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.


Who doesn’t love a good romance story where the main character is a prince.

I loved Jason. Bookstore owner with a cafe, who loves to cook and bake and who gets rewarded with smiles and compliments from his customers. I loved how he knew everyone’s name and talked with them and everyone was his friend. He has a wonderful relationship with his sister which is heartwarming.

Adam, the prince, moves in next door, or rather behind Jason’s establishment, and things get interesting. Tim, Jason’s ex, starts work on Adam’s house. He was one sad individual and a little bit creepy. So, my least favorite scenes in the book involved Tim.

The developing friendship, then romance, of Jason and Adam was very sweet. Adam seemed a little over the top though. Like everyone’s fantasy of a prince and how they would talk and act kicked up another notch. I wish it would have been lowered a bit to be more real and everyday.

I was happy to read that Jason got to go back to Adam’s country. I loved how Adam did not hesitate to include Jason in his trip back home. Jason did not hesitate to accept the offer. Jason got to meet Adam’s Family and it all went well. The story has a nice happy ending

I do recommend this book. If you love a Princely story with sweet relationships and if you enjoy cooking and love stories that revolve around a diner, then you will love this book.
