Paper Princess ~Review

“You may have lost your family, but you’re not alone anymore, Ella. You’re a Royal now.” 

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 adored this book. I thought it was dramatic, cute, flirty, sexy, fun, and a serious page turner. What I thought was really interesting was that the author; Erin Watt, is actually two different authors, Elle Kennedy (author of the Off Campus series) and Jen Frederick (author of the Woodlands series). These two incredibly talents, in their own right, author's joined together and created an amazing series. What I'm most grateful for was that I had all three books in the beginning, because Kennedy and Frederick are a big fan of cliff hangers. I would recommend having all three of The Royals books before you even start. It's such a fast paced story that you literally fly through it. 

My favorite trope in a book is the hate to love romance, if you haven't noticed yet. There's just something about that chemistry that both characters try to deny, that get to me. I kinda love it. Haha. 

Paper Princes was such a fun read. Ella moves in with her late father's best friend, whom she hasn't ever met, best friend nor father. Surprise, Callum Royal (father's best friend) has five sons and OMG I loved them all. I thought the boys relationships with each other were hilarious and so true. When a book incorporates family and the dynamics within the household, it just makes it 10 times better. It's not something we see much in novels, so this was refreshing. 

I adored the friction between Ella and Reed, the hate/love relationship was perfect in tension and intensity. ADORED IT! I also loved how throughout the book, the boys started taking care of Ella more and more, protecting her from the credulity of high school and prep school. 

I would definitely recommend this book! However, there are some rather steamy scenes that may not be suitable for some ages. Read at your own comfort.
