Title: Paper Princess by Erin Watt
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.
Review: What to say, what to say. I was so surprised by this book. It wasn’t at all what I expected it to be. Ella is such a strong character. She is a survivor and knows how to take care of herself. I can’t blame her though. She had to take care of herself and when you’re young that can be very difficult. There were times where I thought that she was being childish in a way but then I would think about it and realize she never got the chance to be a kid one hundred percent. I do believe that Callum really does care about her and want to take care of her and give her the life that she has always wanted but there is a small part of my brain that thinks he might have alternative motives with bring her to his house. His sons definitely don’t help that either. They are all very aggressive and not like any other characters from other books that I have read. Its like they all have their secrets. I did love this book but I am giving it a four out of five because there were times while reading that I felt like it was a repeat of something from earlier in the book.
