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.

The Royals are back and their high-school hierarchy is about to be tested, loyalty and the bond between Brothers is questioned and love is balancing on a precariously fine edge.

Broken Prince starts where Paper Princess ended, and those of you who have read it know how that one fared on the cliffy Richter-scale. I have been waiting ever so impatiently for this book and trust me when I say, the wait was worth it!

Ella is gone; after finding the man she loves with his own Fathers ex-girlfriend in a very compromising position, the hurt and betrayal is too much for the girl who fell desperately in love with her tormentor as she flees with a view of never returning.

Reed Royal is furious at how those final moments unfolded and he has a lot of explaining to do, and he will, once he finds the girl who changed his life for the better. With Ella’s disappearance and the knowledge that it was his fault, for the first time the cracks are starting to show, at home and school as the Brothers go at each others throats like never before. Gideon is the only one who believes Ella is better off out of it, whilst Easton feels betrayed by the girl he considered his best friend. Reed is pissed and heartbroken and the twins are becoming more distant by the day.

Callum Reed is concerned for Ella and hires his best P.A to find his ward before she disappears forever, or worse, ends up dead.

Ella has vowed to never return, but when Callum catches up with her and blackmails her into coming back, she makes a decision to return knowing she only needs to make it two-years before college and legal access to her large inheritance. Easy… Until she sets foot into chaos, and realises that her leaving has put an incredible strain on not only the family, but on her own reputation.

Blackmail, betrayal, lust, hate, and love all play a riveting and fundamental part in this stunning sequel that will have you routing for your favourite couple and hoping like hell the enemies and new number one tormentor get their karma in the most unpleasant of ways.

Reed Royal is a great character whose fierce need to protect his family and the girl he loves knows no boundaries – even succumbing to the possibility that things will never be the same again, he steps up to the plate and promises to fight until the very end and I found his actions commendable. He’s an absolute hotty and after reading this sequel I love him more than ever.

Ella Harper is back and she’s not taking any prisoners. Even when the number one high school bitch takes things too far, her retorts are cutting and witty, all the while with a smile on her face and her head held high. I love a strong heroine and by the end of this book, I’m pretty sure you will have a whole new respect for her too.

For me though, Easton is my broken prince in this story, he is the most destructive and hurting in more ways than you can possibly imagine. Deep down he is that lost boy who misses his Mother and secretly craves his Father’s respect, and I hope he gets his own story on what is fast becoming one of my favourite YA contemporary series’ ever!


If you loved Paper Princess, you will love Broken Prince and that ending… OMG! Another hit on that Richter-scale peeps, but what a great opening and a thickened plot for book 3. I. CAN’T. WAIT! READ IT!
