Saccharine Utopia for young adults. Took me all 2.5 hours to finish, since I was skimming most of the time. Will not continue with book 2.
Jamie, freshly rescued from a slave ship, finds home in a royal castle’s kitchens. When Prince Maxim gets a glimpse of a new face, he falls in love on the spot. All goes super well from that moment on. Not a spec of angst, not a hint of a conflict, not even a slightest misunderstanding. Rainbows and lollipops all the way.
