“TOKYO EVER AFTER was sweet and adorable all at once.”

~ Under the Covers

Recommended Read!

Sometimes taking a chance on a new author pays off and sometimes it doesn’t. So I’m always a bit hesitant to try. But this book was a recommendation from a friend and, let’s just be frank here, look at that gorgeous cover. I couldn’t look away and I’ve been in love with this cover since the first time I saw it.

If you read the blurb for this book it will clearly tell you this is a mix between Princess Diaries and Crazy Rich Asians and honestly it really was. Izumi is Japanese American, growing up in California feeling like she didn’t belong. By chance, she finds something that reveals her father’s identity. Turns out he’s the Crown Prince of Japan and now that he knows of her existence, she’s invited over to spend time among royalty and learn about her position as the Princess.

TOKYO EVER AFTER was sweet and adorable all at once. Izumi is such a likeable heroine and I was rooting for her the whole time. I liked that she brought a bit of her American ways with her when dealing with the royals as much as she also tried to learn about her culture and history in ways she didn’t imagine before. 

Now there’s also a romance. Izumi and her grumpy bodyguard. Yeah a bit cliche and maybe not the best romance ever but it felt perfect while reading this. What I was so invested in seeing more and we didn’t really get hardly anything is the second chance romance between Izumi’s parents!  If there’s ever a second book, this needs to be explored!

Looking for a feel good, fast read? This is it!
