RATING: 5 RISKY YA STARS!

Blurb: Goodreads

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.




BOOK REVIEW:

I totally dug the Paper Princess. Due to the characters ages it is YA, but man, it is pushing the boundaries of YA.

The opening chapter which informs you of Ella’s seventeen year old life and where it has led her to the second chapter which has her being…and then Callum Royal… and I was like…that’s what I am talking about.



I’ve been working the pole at Miss Candy’s, a baby club where I strip to a G-string and pasties. It’s good, but not great money.



Erin Watt is made up of the writing duo Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick and they prove they can write YA and push those boundaries just a little bit more than the average YA read.

The Royals are made up of a family of boys and a dad.



He picks up a set of papers on his desk. “Ella Harper, this is Callum Royal.” He pauses as if that means something to me. Meanwhile, Royal is staring at me like he’s never seen a girl before.



They are scary, a little intimidating, but not the dad, he is trying to do the right thing, but the sons…well, they are another playing field.



“I’ve got five sons. There’s no trick in the book that one of them haven’t tried on me, and I know a teenager when I see one, even beneath a foot of makeup.”


“Reed.” Callum’s commanding voice bounces off the walls. “Easton.” Another name rattles out. “Sawyer.” Then another. “Sebastian…”

Not to forget Gideon.

So, at first glance…many pages, they are the evil stepsisters, I mean brothers, even though they aren’t related…well technically their dad is the guardian of Ella now.

Signed on the dotted line.

I’m not gonna tell you what goes down as there are paaarttaaays, and biatches and gold digger girlfriend and all that good stuff to tsunami Paper Princess into the five star read I think it is.

Take a gander. I think you will like.

Oh and that ending…

*gasp*

Shut the front door!
