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.
Waiting for this book was a crazy long wait, as I’m sure anyone who’s read Paper Princess already knows. AND, after finishing this sequel, it was definitely worth it! Jen Frederrick and Elle Kennedy (our Erin Watt duo) outdid themselves with this sequel, making it even better (in my opinion at least) than Paper Princess.
I loved that only did we get to meet some new characters, but we also got to hear from Reed Royal himself. His perspective was just what we needed to truly understand what took place at the end of the first book. I don’t want to give anything away, so I’ll just say that I love his character even more now and want to hug him (and Easton)!
Ella was every bit as tough as we came to know her, but still just as vulnerable. Life isn’t easy for any them, even if they are Royal’s. But with a little Valerie thrown in and Wade, a friend of Reed’s, things definitely become more interesting.
Just like with Paper Princess, I managed to finish Broken Prince in a day and the wait for the last book, Twisted Palace, is going to be interminable. Jen and Elle developed the story just enough and left me wanting more at the end. I’m excited to find out what will happen to our favorite characters next!
