These Royals will ruin you…
From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.
Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.
What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.
Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.
She might be right.
Secrets. Betrayal. Enemies. It’s like nothing Reed has ever dealt with before, and if he’s going to win back his princess, he’ll need to prove himself Royally worthy.
I can’t wait for this book to be released! It’s one of those books you can’t help but want to discuss with everyone you come across. The Royals has to be one of the most addictive series I’ve ever come across! Broken Prince was just as amazing as Paper Princess, if not better! It picks up right where Paper Princess left off and thank goodness for that, because after the cliffhanger we were left with I had so many questions! Mr. Reed Royal had some serious explaining to do!
Broken Prince begins to peel back more of the walls and secrets surrounding the Royal family. It seems that with every question that is answered, another two questions come to mind. I tried to read this book slowly, thinking I could maybe stretch the experience out over a couple of days. This was not possible. I read Broken Prince from beginning to end without moving. I even had my boyfriend cook and bring my dinner to me because I couldn’t look away.
Ella is again amazing in this one, that girl is one tough cookie! She is amazingly loyal and a force to be reckoned with. Val was one of my favourite characters in Paper Princess, so I’m really glad we get to see more of her in Broken Prince. We also get to know some characters a little bit more, like Wade, who is Reeds best friend (I kind of love him!). Unfortunately, like most things the good comes with the bad, so we get more of Daniel Delacorte and Brooke Davidson.
*side note-Does anyone think of Brooke Davis from One Tree Hill when they read the name Brooke Davidson?*
I love that Broken Prince was told in dual POV. We get to know and understand Reed a lot more in Broken Prince, which considering how things were left off in Paper Princess was absolutely necessary!
It’s hard finding the right words to explain the state I was in when I finished Broken Prince. If you think Paper Princess left you with a cliffhanger, it’s nothing compared to the bombshell you are left with at the end of Broken Prince. I was left absolutely shocked and confused! I had to take some time to process everything before I was able to write this review. I have no idea how I’m going to make it till October! These books are so addictive I just can’t get enough! These Royals have ruined me yet again!
