Paper Princess Summary:
Ella Harper is a survivor. She’s survived drifting from town to town with her mother all her life, but since her mother’s passing she’s been supporting herself.
That is until Callum Royal uproots her life and plops her into his mansion amongst his own five sons. The Royal boys hate her on the spot, but none more so than Reed.
Now Ella has to learn to survive her new prep school, the wrath of the Royal boys, the deception around her and not fall for the ruthless of them all- Reed.
My Paper Princess Review:
Wow! This book was so much more than I expected. I definitely did not expect a cliffhanger but that just means I’m on to book 2.
Sometimes I shy away from romance books about teen romance because they read “too adult” in my mind, or they fit too much in the bully romance category, but this one was so, so good.
I loved Ella’s background story and how she came to the Royal household, but man her reception by the boys was COLD. Gah!
I’m not a fan of bully romance so I was ecstatic that it read more as an enemies-to-lovers romance which I adore. Plus, the chemistry between Reed and Ella was so hot.
This book was such a build-up to Ella finding her place at her new prep school and her relationship with the Royal family.
I can see this story unfolding in so many different ways, and I can’t wait to read what happens next.
You know you’ve found an amazing read when you can’t put it down and immediately want to grab book two and then read the entire The Royals series.
Such a well-written and intriguing story that I can’t recommend enough! Check it out.
