“This generation’s Cruel Intentions.” Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author
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.

We recommend this for young adult readers, age 17 and up. We think it’s a book that will appeal to older teens and those adults who are in touch with their inner teen, like us.
Q: Is there a cliffhanger? I’ve heard there’s an awful cliffhanger! Why’d you write a cliffhanger?

Addictive. Sexy. Unstoppable. Get ready for one Royal family that puts the D in dysfunctional and a capital H in Hotter than sin. Reed Royal… I’m all yours!
I’ve been poor and hungry. I was raised by a stripper. I know how to throw a punch if I have to. But I’m only seventeen. Sometimes that feels too young to have lived the life I have. Sometimes I look around at my surroundings and think, I don’t belong here.
This book, through all intents and purposes, held me prisoner. From the moment I started, until I read the final word I didn’t move. My breakfast came at 4pm in the afternoon because once Ella’s story got its talons into me, it would have taken a monumental natural disaster to move me from my comfortable reading position. I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my Sunday than wrapped up in the warm cocoon of my bed with this addictive, show-stopping read.
To grow up living out of a suitcase was all Ella Harper knew. With a single working Mom trying desperately hard to make ends meet by using what god gave her, Ella didn’t have roots, family or a real friend to her name, but she did have one thing; gumption.
This girl could work three jobs and still get top marks in school. Losing her Mother to cancer was the hardest challenge she ever had to face, staying ahead of the foster care system and forging her Mother’s signature in a new town so she can stay in school proves her resourcefulness and her maturity, but her dream of remaining anonymous in her pursuit of freedom is thwarted when a trip to the principle’s office one afternoon changes not only her current course but her entire life.
Callum Royal is a household name in aviation. A successful multi-millionaire who, until only recently found out that his best friend and business partner had an illegitimate child. It was a quick relationship 18 years ago, but before he had the chance to meet his Daughter, tragedy struck again when Steven O’Halloran was killed in a gliding accident.
Fulfilling his best friend duties, Callum is on a mission to get the young girl away from the same ‘seedy’ lifestyle her Mom took, and give her a life, a home that Steven would have rightfully provided her – there is just one problem; not only does he have to convince this closed off feisty girl of his good intentions, but the biggest battle is convincing his sons…all five of them.
And wow, what a hell of a read this was. Ella Harper was literally thrown into the lions den, but how she strategised and coped with everything thrown at her was admirable that it had me rooting for her every step of the way.
From squalor to a multi-million dollar home on the beach, and an exclusive private high-school education, Ella was out of her depth many times and the Royal sons were to blame for it all. The Daughter of a stripper residing with the highly respected, powerful Royal sons household an embarrassment to their family name. Their minds are made up and nothing is getting in the way of them breaking her. Nothing.
That is until Gideon, Reed, Easton, Sawyer and Sebastian realise that you can’t really break something that is more powerful than you are. Because in a world of wealth and power there are still demons, there is still pain, and Ella understands that more than most. New-found respect, friendship, even love comes to play a pivotal role, but nothing could have prepared Reed Royal for the blond, blue eyed hurricane about to knock him off his feet.
A battle of wills, a test of strength, and a family living on the edge, this is one book that will have you turning the page with fervour and relishing every second. That ending was a real angst-ridden gutsy move but my goodness did it work. Book two cannot come fast enough for me.
Reed Royal, I’m all yours!
