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.

There is so much that I want to say about this book that I have no clue how to start. Honestly, I've been sitting here staring at this screen and I can remember every detail about this book and I want to say so much that it's all coming out in an excitable babble. LOL!

So I'm just going to start off by saying, if you haven't figured it out yet, that I love this book so much. The whole plotline is fantastic and well written that I had no clue what was going to happen next. Seriously, it caught me off guard several times. Which doesn't happen very often when reading for me, most of the time I see things coming or can guess what's going to happen next. When I find a book that I can't predict I'm usually in awe of it. Plus it doesn't hurt that the writing style was perfection and it made reading this book a great read.

Let's talk about the characters! Which in this book is my favorite part, I really connected with several of them in this book. Not really with their actions but I really connected with their emotions. I even cried a few times while reading this one. The book starts out in such a way that I didn't expect that I was hooked right away and plopped right into Ella's life, in such a way that I couldn't look away not even for a second. Honestly, I didn't stop listening to this one for very long and had to finish it as fast as I could. I just had to know what was going to happen to her next. Besides Ella, Easton (one of the brothers) also became one of my favorite characters in this story. He's funny and becomes very close to Ella in the end. So much love for him.

The author's writing style was the other thing that pulled me in right away, I wouldn't really say this was an easy to read story, but it's one that really flowed.  If you haven't read Paper Princess what are you waiting for, seriously, get your copy today and start reading. You won't be dissapointed!
