From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.MY REVIEW:
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.
Delicious and scandalous are two words that come to mind immediately after finishing this story! And OH MAN! That ending?!?!?
Poor girl Ella was raised by a single Mom. A single parent who happened to strip to pay the bills. Though their life was simple, it was all Ella needed, because she felt loved by her mom. But at age 15 her mom got cancer and for 2 years she herself had to turn to stripping to help pay the medical bills plus 2 other jobs and going to school full time. Her life drastically changes when a handsome 40's something man shows up in a suit that costs more than one month of her living expenses. He claims to be her legal guardian and the best friend of her father. The father she's never met. The father she was only told was a sailor and left a really expensive watch for her to have. Basically kidnapping her, because she doesn't exactly go willingly, he swoops her up into his world. A world filled with more money that she can comprehend, a mansion that royalty would live in, and 5 sons who are all extremely gorgeous and extremely lethal.
Fans of Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire and Fallen Too Far by Abbi Glines are gonna eat this up!! We are talking extreme juiciness! I can't even deal ya'll.
Top 5 Favorite Quotes:
The apple is dangling in front of me, juicy red and delicious, but, like the fairy tale, Reed Royal is the villain disguised as a pretty prince. Taking a bite out of him would be a huge mistake.
"I need a smoke every time you two are within five feet of each other."
"You belong with us. You're the best thing that ever happened to this family."
Reed Royal, my very own dragon slayer.
