Blurb (from Goodreads):
Nik Gustafsson has a secret: He’s not really Nik Gustafsson.
He’s not a spy. He’s not crazy.
He’s just the son and heir to one of the most important families in Europe—one where duty always comes first. And his posh, too-public life is suffocating him. So when he gets the chance to attend boarding school in America, pretending to be an average exchange student is too big of a temptation to pass up.
Then he literally runs into Amber on campus. And she hates him at first sight.
It’s kind of exhilarating to be hated for who he is, not for his family name or his wealth. Maybe if he turns up the charm and turns down the aloof mask he habitually wears, he can win her over. Even though a bad past experience has made her swear off dating this year.
But the more he gets to know her, the more uncomfortable he is keeping things from her.
Because Nik Gustafsson has a secret. And it’s a big one.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This was a YA contemporary romance featuring an undercover prince.
The characters in this were a bit irritating to be honest. Amber constantly criticised Nik and teased him for his mannerisms, which wasn’t very nice, especially when he was from another country and couldn’t help that his life was different to hers.
The storyline in this was about Amber and Nik spending time together after meeting through their friends, and I didn’t really get the attraction between them at all. In fact, one moment Amber was criticising him and the next they were kissing, which seemed to come out of nowhere!
The ending to this was a happily ever after, but I didn’t really buy it. Things seemed to just come together quite unrealistically, and I just found it a little unbelievable.
