Soundtrack Saturday – The Royal We by Heather Cocks & Jessica Morgan

FromSoundtrackSaturday the authors’ website: American Rebecca Porter was never one for fairy-tales. Her twin sister, Lacey, has always been the romantic who fantasized about glamour and royalty, fame and fortune. Yet it’s Bex who seeks adventure at Oxford and finds herself living down the hall from Prince Nicholas, Great Britain’s future king. And when Bex can’t resist falling for Nick, the person behind the prince, it propels her into a world she did not expect to inhabit, under a spotlight she is not prepared to face.

Soundtrack Song: “This Love” by Ryan Adams
Taylor Swift’s “This Love” tells of a relationship that became too hard and fell apart, but was destined to be rekindled. Ryan Adams’ take on it is haunting and bittersweet, and the whole thing matches Bex & Nick to a tee.
Also, I just like the idea of using a cover song for a book that’s a fictional retelling of true events.

Clear blue water, high tide came and brought you in
And I could go on and on, on and on, and I will
Skies grew darker, currents swept you out again
And you are just gone and gone, gone and gone

Bonus Soundtrack Song:Spies” by Coldplay
Because, ugh, those sleazy sneaky spies.
