The Princess and the Player by J. Santiago Release Blitz

The Princess and the Player by J. Santiago Now Available

Her Royal Highness, Eleanor Altamirano, lives a structured life dictated by both her position and experiences. Plagued by panic attacks, Ele requires predictability in her schedule. Directed by the crown prince to cover an appearance with the National Football team, she reluctantly attends.

One of the most recognizable footballers, Tristan Davenport lives large and publicly, entertaining the masses with his frequent social media posts. Chosen to be a representative to meet the royal delegation, Tristan eagerly accepts.

It is supposed to be a staged meet-and-greet—not a tour, not a connection, not a kiss. Going off script for the first time in years, Ele relishes the adventure until a panic attack drives her away. She doesn’t get an opportunity to make amends until she is ordered to go to America as part of the delegation for the World Championship Cup. When her apology leads to more kisses, Tristan and Ele decide to mix royal and football business with pleasure.

But the championship lasts only a month, and Ele’s future is waiting. Responsible to her country and family, Ele knows their affair must end, but Tristan is a competitor who doesn’t want to come in second to anything—not even a kingdom.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the first book in a new series, and I think that the world building is done rather well – in fact, we are given important information throughout the story, so it feels organic. I am definitely looking forward to future books, as we get some great hints of the direction that some plots may take.

Princess Eleanor has a secret; part of this is that she can have crippling panic attacks. When one happens when she is with leading footballer, Tristan Davenport, her entourage are staggered at how he manages to pull her around from the attack. Thus starts a complicated, but very secret and very passionate... hookup? Short-term relationship? Impossible romance? As they try and find time in between the football tournament in the States and her royal duties, they get closer emotionally as well as physically, but protocol is not in their favour. We get to see that they go all in, even if the chances of it ending in heart break are very high.

This is a fun mix of a sports romance and a royal one. I think it does a good job of setting up a situation which we want to succeed, but really everything is piled up against them. I am looking forward to seeing how the relationship develops in the next installment.
