TITLE - Paper Princess (The Royals #1)
AUTHOR - Erin Watt
From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.
These Royals will ruin you…
Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.
Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.
Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.
He might be right.
Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.
I can't believe I forgot to write a review on this book. I read it in 1 sitting, loved it and was completely addicted and wowed by it. So how on earth did I forget to write a review on it?
Anyway, so this book was amazing. I wasn't sure if I would like it, never mind love it. The blurb was good, and I fancied some angst and drama. I was not disappointed.
Ella Harper is a girl who has a rough life, but her determination is so strong, she won't let anything get her down. She just needs to keep her head down, and get through high school, and hopefully not be noticed. Until everything changes. Callum Royal, a rich and gorgeous stranger walks into her school one day and is determined to change her life. That's when Ella realises what life is like on the other side. Luxurious, lavish, and cruel. Callum Royal's 5 sons are going to teach her that.
With 5 gorgeous sons, Ella is thrown in to the deep end. Each son seems to be spoilt and cruel in their own way, and have plenty of secrets. As much as Ella just wants to get on with her life, they are going to make it difficult for her, and Reed Royal seems to be the most gorgeous, tempting, and nastiest.
Cue some crazy chemistry, between Ella and Reed. As much as they seem to hate each other, it's obvious they are also mega attracted to each other, and it's addictive waiting to see what happens. The brothers are also hiding secrets, and Ella's curious nature is leading her to find out what they are.
I loved how addictive this story was, and the characters were the best part. Even the additional smaller characters were so entertaining to read about. The writing style was so good, I just couldn't stop reading. I loved the story and didn't want it to end. Even with the crazy ending, I still loved it, and want the next book like right now.
Hugely recommend this story if you want something a bit different, but insanely entertaining and full of edge of the seat chemistry!
