From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.
THESE ROYALS WILL RUIN YOU…
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.
Worldbuilding: This story takes place in Bayview, in and around Reed’s high school and house.
Characters: The main characters in this novel are Reed Royal and Ella Harper. Reed’s life has turned upside down and he wouldn’t have it any other way. Ella is amazing and best thing that has happened to him since his mom died. But when a misunderstanding arises, Reed loses all the ground he gained with Ella and is afraid that he has lost her forever. Can Reed prove he is the man Ella knows he can be? Or will she cut her losses and strike out on her own? Ella has had the craziest last few months but none of that tops the revelation she receives in Reed’s bedroom. Confused, hurt, and furious, she does the only thing she knows how to, she runs. Unfortunately, the Royal’s won’t let go of her that easily and she is dragged back to the last place she wants to be. Can Ella keep her chilly walls up and impenetrable as she navigates her way through the Royal household again? Or will Reed and the boys show her that they are not willing to let her go without a fight?
Plot: This story starts off where the first novel ended. It is a romance between Ella and Reed but the road to reconciliation is tumultuous, and their relationship isn’t the only one Ella needs to repair.
Writing: This novel is written in first person points of view of Reed and Ella. I was so unbelievably excited to read Reed’s point of view and it really gave the readers extra information that they didn’t have before! This is the second novel in the Royals series and cannot be read as a standalone.
Curb Appeal: I really, really like that these covers are unique!! They don’t seem like they would represent the story but I think they do. The blurb barely gives any information on what happened or what is going to happen but there is enough to intrigue you!
Ultimately: This series is seriously bonkers but I freaking loved every second!!!! There is another killer cliffhanger at the end of this novel so make sure you have the next novel in the series to read right away because I’m telling you, your jaw with hit the ground and you will need to know what happens next!!! All in all, if you are in the mood for a crazy roller coaster ride that has a lot of heart then come check out Broken Prince!!!!
I couldn't have said that better myself! Reading is huge passion of mine. And I'm glad that books not only expand my world view but that they bring the wonderful people who created them into my life. You can always find me with a book and an eclectic mix of music on. I am a HEA junkie extraordinaire! I am a Beta reader, who loves helping authors bring their characters to life. As well as an avid romance reader (every and anything ;D) turned aspiring author.
