Paper Princess 

  Paper Princess (The Royals #1) by 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.




5 out of 5 stars

Holy craziness Batman! This was diabolically awesome! Such a wickedly entertaining read! Every person who told me it was addicting was right. I freaking inhaled this!

The world of The Royals that the author has created is beyond fascinating. The characters are so intriguing and complicated. There are so many different layers and things happening. I hung on to every detail. The drama (oh the drama!), the tension, and the angst were all fantastic. The Royals have totally ruined me. I loved the writing, the descriptions, the build, I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. It's all so exciting!

Ella and Reed. Oh, man. The push and pull these two have going on with their love-hate relationship was so awesome. I loved all their interactions. This is very much Mature YA, if I would have read this as a teen I would have seriously thought I was getting away with something.

Throughout the story, the Royals family totally grew on me as I learned more about their history. They have this crazy family dynamic happening. It's like I wanted to slap them all and hug them all at the same time… and I mean that in a good way!

From the fighting to the privileged, the scheming, and mean girls I could not wait to see what was going to happen next. I had a gazillion questions when it ended and cannot wait to read the next book. And that ending, freaking killer cliffhanger. I totally yelled at my Kindle.

I'm honestly surprised I remembered to feed my family. I'm not even kidding. Time just stopped and I'd look up and two hours would have passed and I didn't pay attention to my Kindle percentage at all. This was an all-consuming, fascinating world I couldn't get enough of.

Complimentary copy received.
