American Princess Meets Homeboy by Jamy Rosser is a contemporary rags-to-riches romantic novel set in the city of Las Vegas, Nevada. Mr. Johnson has worked hard to build a brand and an empire, something he's achieved with Fashion on Fremont, a premier retailer in the entertainment capital of the world. His daughter Hope is down to earth despite the family's success, pulling her weight and putting in hours like everyone else, whether it is in the office or on the store floor. A new hire named David catches her eye and as the romance flourishes, Hope helps David get his book published—and it skyrockets to a point where David is now faced with both the delights and the trappings of success.

American Princess Meets Homeboy is a wonderfully engrossing story with all the right components for an excellent urban romance. Written from multiple first-person points of view, author Jamy Rosser is able to perfectly develop imperfect characters through authentic, wholly believable dialogue and a plot that moves forward with good pacing and trajectory. I loved David's working-class roots and Hope's down-to-earth personality. Having lived in Las Vegas myself for 12 years, it's refreshing to read a tale set in a city where gambling is the driving force but only serves as an ancillary aspect in the novel. There is more to Vegas than casinos, and its residents do not grocery shop at the gift shops (despite popular opinion). Props to Rosser for highlighting the Rebels and for giving us a book that anyone who likes excellent fiction will enjoy.
