Book Review: Paper Princess by Erin Watt

It's time to review another book and OMG this book?  First of all I wouldn't have heard about this book if it wasn't for my Facebook Book Group Novo Squad who was create by author Siobhan Davis (author of the True Calling series, amazing series and I have reviews for all of the books here on my blog).  Anyway, Siobhan asked us if we wanted to do a buddy read for this book and book 2 of this series and of course I jumped into.  Why?  I read the description and it intrigue me right away.  Okay, I'm going to stop and get to the review...let's do this:

Paper Princess by Erin Watt

Paper Princess (The Royals, #1)

Ella Harper has spent her whole life moving from one town to another town with her mother in order to make ends meet and because of her mother's life style.  But she has never complaint and no matter what her mother's life was she knew that her mother loved her.  However after her mother died, Ella is all alone and trying to make ends meet on her own now.  She has faked her mothers signature in order to continue high school and avoid foster care.  She has also taken advantage of her mother's ID to do a job she isn't so proud of but one that gives her enough money to pay for bills and feed her every month.  She is a survivor and the only thing that she wants in life is to finish high school and go to college after and then get a decent job afterwards.

That is until Callum Royal appears and changes her life completely, he takes Ella out of poverty and brings her to his million dollar mansion where is five sons live.  However the minute that Ella walks into the house his five sons decide that Ella is an enemy and decide to hate her and make her life hell.  Not only they want to make her feel miserable but their ultimate goal is to send her back to the slums she came from.

Each Royal is hotter than the last but Reed Royal just takes Ella's breath away, even if she doesn't want to admit, but Reed doesn't want her, he keeps telling her that she doesn't belong with the Royals. Ella fights to find her place at the Royal palace but fight after fight with the Royal brothers she starts to wonder if they are right, doesn't she belong on their life?

But she isn't the only one wondering if she belongs there.  Soon all the Royal brothers start wondering the same.  Is it better having Ella around?

But the Royals are not your typical family, they have more secrets than you can imagine and each one of them are keeping things so deep and dark that maybe they cannot be saved.

This book?  OMG, this book?  Read that's all I'm going to say and if you read something that you don't agree?  Just keep on reading because it gets better and it's really not what you thought it was going to be.  So many secrets, so many things that can happen and that happened.  Each Royal brother can have a book dedicate to him because each of them have so much going on that's not even funny.  And that twist at the end of this book?  It totally killed, I read and had to read that last page a few times because I really didn't believe that it happened.  It had been a very long time since I read a book with an amazing twist like that.  I love these characters a little too much, that's a little absurd, right?

4.5 Stars for this book because I was soooo mad with the twist, don't blame me.  :)
