These Royals will ruin you…

From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.

These Royals will ruin you…

The saying is TRUE! These Royals will ruin you and I have been Royally Ruined, my friends. I’ve been trying to write this review for about 2-3 weeks now and every time I start it I can’t get past being ruined. After I finished Paper Princess earlier this year, I had the biggest book hangover ever. That cliffhanger about killed me and I was dying to see what happened. When Broken Prince showed up on my kindle, I couldn’t wait to read it. I had to know what ha

This book continues the soap opera that is this series, although with a little less...magnetism than book one possessed.

Everything about this book is geared to make us lose our soap operatic shit and do the old:

After finishing 'Paper Princess', I dived right into 'Broken Prince'. I had to know what would become of Ella and all of the Royals after that ending. Talk about a cliffhanger!

I was pulling my hair out with the way the first book ended. Luckily, I didn't start this series until all three books were out, so I didn't have to wait for long. I feel for my friends that had to live with that anxious anticipation for long.

Seriously. Imagine yourself reading the last bit of a book, right before the ending. Out of nowhere, someone comes up to you and SMACKS YOU ACROSS THE FACE.

Pow. Right in the kisser.
Then that person says, "Oh. I'm sorry. Did that hurt?", reaches in as if comfort you, then SMACKS YOU ACROSS THE OTHER SIDE OF YOUR FACE.

That is approximately how it feels to read through the end of Broken Prince.

WARNING: if you like this book/series my review probably isn't for you.

Broken Prince was a book I fit into the minority with, same with Paper Princess. Everyone seems to love these books, characters and plot line but I find it all laughable. Which is sad considering one of my favourite authors co-wrote this.

The book was full of slut shaming, bullying and all over ridiculous characters who seemed to think in ridiculous ways. I laughed for 80% of the book and the other 20% was weird sex stuff ab

Sometimes you read a blurb and you're just left confused.
And sometimes you read something like this:
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.

And you end up like this:

(view spoiler) is only "one foolish mistake"?

A foolish mistake is dying the laundry pink.
A foolish mistake is falling after sliding down a railing.

This books is literally the epitome of a problematic fave. It's clichéd and unoriginal, the plot seems pointless at times, there's little to no character growth.. and yet.

And yet.

It's so... fucking... GOOD.

It's partly because the drama is 10/10 would drama again grade A+++. And it's partly because, SOMEHOW, I care about the characters. Just a little bit.

the drama is so ridiculous and so freaking out of this realm that I almost can't deal sometimes. I'm that asshole
1.) Paper Princess ★★★

Broken Prince is much worse than Paper Princess in every way, but it was still an addictive read that I couldn’t put down. Again, I was having a rough couple of days and just wanted to read a really fast story that I didn’t really have to think about, and this series totally fits that bill.

This book starts off right where Paper Princess left off, and I mean right off, so thank the Lord for not having to wait for explanation to that terrible cliffhanger, but Reed’s reaction

In many ways, Broken Prince was better than Paper Princess. For one, it was told in dual POV.

In my mind, there are different kinds of 'whipped'.

There's the adorable, squeal-inducing kind then there's mushy, annoying, eyeroll-deserving kind. Sadly or more like predictably, Reed Royal in Broken Prince was the latter kind of 'whipped'.

If you thought Paper Princess was over-the-top, you haven't seen nothing yet...

As you all probably already know, those of us who were lucky to get advanced copies of Broken Prince have been sworn to secrecy and asked not to reveal a single thing that happens. So this review will mainly consist of cursing, non-spoilery rants, reactions, and will depict my urge to simultaneously strangle and hug the authors for DOING THIS TO ME AGAIN.

“These Royals will ruin you….”


Wow! Stunning, intense, angst-filled and thrilling. Erin Watt has done it again with their second instalment of “The Royals” series “Broken Prince.” After reading “Paper Princess” I wasn’t sure how I was going to survive having to wait after that massive cliffy for the second one. It felt like years. My advice to anyone who has not delved into this series as of yet, is to perhaps wait until October when they’re all released and then binge read the

I'm not going to summarize the book really because it just picks up where the first one left off, and also there's no way to summarize it without just flat out saying everything that happens. So yeah spoilers ahead. It just picks up from Reed's POV after Ella walks in on him and Brooke. Ella decides to run away and the good portion of the book revolves around finding Ella and Reed falling out with his brothers. Then Ella comes back, apparently after being "blackmailed" by Callum, and we get to s ...more

This author collaboration is successfully sweeping across the path of most of my fellow romance readers and there's not many that haven't loved what these authors have produced so far. 'Paper Princess' was a debut diamond that I was super eager to get my greedy reading hands on and as soon as I got my first 'Royal' fix I was ready for more. So it comes as no surprise that my ex
