Every month I pick a completed series to share with you and in honor of their new book When It's Real (releasing May 30th!) I picked The Royal series by Erin Watt. This series blew me away and I'm excited to share my thoughts with you guys! Let's dive into The Royals world!
Are you ready to be ruined?
The Cover: The Royal series has some of the best covers I have ever seen. I think it's very bold to not feature an actual cover model and objects instead. But these covers are done beautifully AND they relate to the story which is so important to me so I love them! A+
Basics: The Royals series is three books long, Paper Princess, Broken Princess and Twisted Palace and they were published by EverAfter Romance. Genre wise The Royal series belong to: romance, contemporary romance and young adult.
Description: 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.
Overall thoughts: I was blown away by this series! It reminds me of a contemporary Cinderella story and it also reminds me of the Korean Drama, Boys Over Flowers. Paper Princess was my first Erin Watt book and I was hooked from the first page. The story especially intrigued me because it's the same dance and song, two different people from different backgrounds falling for one another right? Erin Watt did that with The Royal Series but with several twists. For example, Ella is your typical Cinderella. She's a beauty but her tongue is as sharp as knife and she will lay you flat on your butt if you mess with her. Reed is the brooding bad boy and runs the high school with his brothers. So of course when Ella comes out nowhere it sets Reed on edge and they basically start an all out war against each other. Ella has already been thrown into a situation she doesn't want or expect and with Reed and his brothers on her heels what's a girl to do? All's fair in love and war but maybe not in the Royals household. This series has twists and turns that will have you reading through them all the way into the night.
Favorite characters: I love Ella! She is a kick ass heroine with sass, hilarious humor and is just an overall good role model. She has been through so much and she's so strong and I really enjoy reading about characters like Ella, they give me strength and hope on bad days. Let's talk about the Royals. I adore Reed, he is SO bad. I mean seriously he could be the muse behind a Taylor Swift song guys. I also love Easton and the twins! I'm very excited to hear Easton's story too which is releasing later this fall! I'm really hope Erin Watt will write about the twins someday too!
