It’s not easy being royal. Sixteen-year-old Evangeline wears her crown proudly, but between her duties and her overprotective big brother, the idea of romance is just a dream. But a chance encounter in Chicago changes all that….

Sure, seventeen-year-old Tyler Evans loves playing hockey, but he’s more concerned about providing for his dad and little sister. Then he meets Eva–and falls head-over-heels in love—and he has two more problems. One, she’s his best friend’s little sister. Two, she wears a crown.

But then Eva accidentally mistakes Tyler for a visiting prince, and for the first time, Tyler doesn’t feel like a nobody. He knows he has to tell her the truth…but not yet.

His plan? To keep up the royal charade as long as it takes to convince Eva he’s the guy for her. Even if he’s lying to everyone…including himself.

Disclaimer: May cause disillusionment. Those girls looking to find their Prince Charming might consider scouting out hockey rinks.

This book series has been really great reads so far and Just Pretending did not disappoint! It was fast paced, and it had the same reading vibes as the other books had for me.
Just Pretending reminded me of Aladdin so it almost could be an Aladdin retelling. It’s not intentionally supposed to be one, but it had all of the elements there. For example, there was a queen and then a commoner who ends up pretending he’s a prince. I liked that aspect very much.
I liked Tyler in this book and was glad we got to see both Eva and Tyler. I liked all of the characters here and the reunion.
The end made me sad though since this was the last of the series, but overall this was a five star read because it continued the series that I loved, the plot, and characters. Plus I also like the hockey parts in this story. I like a good hockey story.  I’d definitely recommend this if you are looking for a series with friendships, romance and hockey.
Overall, this entire series is a five out of five star read.

 I decided not to do a top five or a top ten Tuesday post this week. You got a mini review from me instead! What do you think? Feel free to leave a comment below!
