These reviews are pretty short because both stories are around 60+ pages only.
Prince Maxon is one of my favourite characters in The Selection series. I loved getting an insight into his views on the selection, his relationship with his father and his first encounter with America. This was actually a really interesting short story.
I don’t like Aspen but I honestly believed reading a story from his point of view would change my opinion on him. Unfortunately, it did not. Aspen seemed to whine throughout this book and his sole focus was America. While I understand that this book is based on the love triangle of Aspen/America/Maxon it does not mean a characters one sole focus is to get the girl. Although, I still dislike Aspen there were brief moments when I found myself starting to slowly like him and I did enjoy Aspen’s relationship with Lucy, Mary and Anne.
