"A total, rollicking delight. Gwen & Art gave me the same cheeky, swoony, giddy, irresistible high of the first time I saw A Knight's Tale. Lex Croucher is one of my favorite romcom authors, and they should be yours, too." - Casey McQuiston, #1 New York Times bestselling author of I Kissed Shara Wheeler

Heartstopper
meets A Knight's Tale in this queer medieval rom com YA debut about love, friendship, and being brave enough to change the course of history.

It's been hundreds of years since King Arthur's reign. His descendant, Arthur, a future Lord and general gadabout, has been betrothed to Gwendoline, the quick-witted, short-tempered princess of England, since birth. The only thing they can agree on is that they despise each other.
They're forced to spend the summer together at Camelot in the run up to their nuptials, and within 24 hours, Gwen has discovered Arthur kissing a boy and Arthur has gone digging for Gwen's childhood diary and found confessions about her crush on the kingdom's only lady knight, Bridget Leclair.
Realizing they might make better allies than enemies, they make a reluctant pact to cover for each other, and as things heat up at the annual royal tournament, Gwen is swept off her feet by her knight and Arthur takes an interest in Gwen's royal brother. Lex Croucher's Gwen & Art Are Not in Love is chock full of sword-fighting, found family, and romantic shenanigans destined to make listeners fall in love.
"In this frivolous medieval romp of a queer rom-com, Lex Croucher toys with Arthurian legend to delightful effect." - Entertainment Weekly
"Fun and genuinely funny, with lovely friendships and first-rate dialogue. Gwen and Art may not be in love, but I fell for both of them." - Rainbow Rowell, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Simon Snow trilogy
"Gwen & Art Are Not in Love was exactly what I needed right nowa delightful, heart-warming, hilarious historical romp, overflowing with queer panic and terrible jokes. I loved it." - Alice Oseman, New York Times bestselling author of the Heartstopper series
A Macmillan Audio production from Wednesday Books.

This book was very enjoyable and a fast read. Although it took me almost all month to read, any time I picked up the book, I would read a large chunk. My favorite part of this story was the characters. I loved seeing them grow and change and accept who they are.

My favorite character was Arthur, and I definitely preferred the romance between him and Gabriel. The bond between our main band of characters was beautiful, and I love how that was summed up in the final chapter of the book. The book is a funny romance, but it also has a side plot of a mystery where you are trying to figure out who is trying to take over the kingdom which eventually culminates to a large, bloody battle at the end of the book. That part of the plot is smaller throughout the book until you get to the battle, but it was still interesting enough to keep you captivated because at that point, you’re all ready connected to the characters.

The reason I gave the book a four stars instead of five stars is because the romance between Bridget and Gwen was boring to me in comparison to Art and Gabriel. ( )

Rollicking with great dialogue and complex relationships, this is just plain fun! I couldn't put it down. Gwen & Art, Gabriel and Bridget are all well-developed characters, as are most others. Love the twists on Arthurian legend, such as the current king having a rectangular table. ( )

WHAT A TREAT. This is adorable, sweet, funny, witty, well written. I've never really been into historical settings, but this was really very sweet. I really had a fun time reading it, especially with how well written the dialogue was. I love the characters, and how they're developed.

Fun :) ( )

In Camelot, hundreds of years after King Arthur's death, Princess Gwendoline has been betrothed since birth to Arthur, who she's hated almost as long. Her brother and best friend, Gabriel, is destined to be king, though his preferred style of kingship is different from their father's. When Arthur and his man Sidney come to Camelot to stay for the summer, Arthur and Gwen form an agreement to pretend to get along, to keep their parents off their backs - and because they've each discovered a secret about the other. Arthur is gay, and Gwen is has a crush on the only female knight in the realm, Lady Bridget. At first it's all tournaments and banter, but there is a real threat to the status quo in Camelot, and they are all in danger. Can Gwen, Gabe, and Arthur all summon the courage to fight for what they believe in?

An absolutely delightful romp. See also: Red, White, and Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston (contemporary romance), Dickinson (TV show), A Knight's Tale (movie).

Quotes

"Nobody else is ever going to care as much as you do about the things that you want, Gwendoline. So it's up to you..." (Arthur, 115)

"The problem with compromise...is that, often, oeverybody loses. You sit on the fence for so long that you discover you've built a kingdom on it." (Gwen and Gabe's father, the king, 121)

"I suppose it's much easier to devote yourself to the idea of somebody, instead of the flesh-and-blood person. Much neater." (Arthur, 135)

"You don't know that...You don't know for sure how people might react....Shouldn't we just...tell the truth? And let everybody make up their own minds?" (Gwen to Gabriel, 285) ( )
