Spotlight Review – Paper Princess (The Royals #1) by Erin Watt

PP Cover

ALP Synopsis1

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.

Paper Princess is a captivating tale of family ties, friendship and the mysterious space between set in the twisted and salacious kingdom of Royals.  This book consumed me and I was completely enthralled with these characters. The story was gloriously intense, full of mind boggling twists, drama to boot, EPIC revenge and a jaw dropping ending that is sure to leave you begging for more.

I went into this book because of the promise of some good YA drama. Rest assured, this story delivered that and then some. There were characters I loved and characters I loved to hate. There was plenty of head shaking and outbursts from me while reading and I enjoyed every wicked minute.

There is so much we have yet to learn about the Royals and I for one can’t wait for the next installment. I loved the ending – LOVED IT!! I don’t generally mind cliffhangers if it makes sense to the story. This one was HELLA good and I am most certainly counting down the days until book two, Broken Prince, which is due to release July 25. Paper Princess is book one of a three book series by debut author Erin Watt, the brain child of authors Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars

* I was provided a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

Erin Watt is the brainchild of two bestselling authors linked together through their love of great books and an addiction to writing. They share one creative imagination. Their greatest love (after their families and pets, of course)? Coming up with fun–and sometimes crazy–ideas. Their greatest fear? Breaking up.
