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.
Captivating and enthralling. Mysterious and seductive. You won’t be able to put it down.
I went into this book completely blind. I had no idea what to expect and I was completely blown away. I’m still not quite sure how to feel about this book or the characters but I do know that I am entirely intrigued.
Paper Princess is sort of a conundrum. It’s kind of dark, has moments of light and levity, and sexy. Even though I’ve completely finished the book, I still feel like I have next to no idea what’s going on and there are a million secrets yet to be revealed.
I really like Ella’s character. She’s strong, determined, and can take care of herself. She doesn’t take shit from anybody, doesn’t hesitate to stand up for herself, but still has a heart of gold. She’s living a true rags to riches story.
The thing that’s really bizarre is that I have no idea how to feel about any other character in this book. I can’t decide who is good, who is bad, or if everyone is a mixture of both. I don’t know who to trust but I’m desperate for more.
The way this book is written had me captivated from the very beginning. I felt ravenous while reading it – it was nothing short of painful every time I had to put it down. Real life is such a drag sometimes, right? Always getting in the way.
