#ReleaseDay: Paper Princess by Erin Watt

The Paper Princess

by Erin Watt

Published April 4th 2016

About The Book:

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. 


Q: Is this really a YA? 

We recommend this for young adult readers, age 17 and up. We think it’s a book that will appeal to older teens and those adults who are in touch with their inner teen, like us.

Q: Is there a cliffhanger? I’ve heard there’s an awful cliffhanger! Why’d you write a cliffhanger?

We promise that we didn’t set out to write a cliffhanger, but Paper Princess does end in one. The good news is that the next book will be released July 25, 2016. 

My Review:

Paper Princess (The Royals, #1)Paper Princess by Erin Watt
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Paper Princess by Erin Watt is the first book in The Royals series. Erin Watt is the pen name of two fantastic authors, Elle Kennedy & Jen Frederick. This book is tagged as mature YA and while YA is not a go-to for me it also isn't one I refuse to read. These characters are mature high school students approaching graduation and I'm okay with that.

The plot for the book is somewhat modern-day cinderella-ish. Ella is a tough as nails survivor who is intelligent, resourceful, and wary. When she is plucked from her barely surviving life after her mother's death she is leery of her supposed "rescuer" but Callum Royal is legit and has information on her father that she might want. He also opens his home to her, providing more than she could have ever dreamed of. Callum's sons, however, are FAR from welcoming to this interloper they view as a money seeker and home wrecker.

The tension is palpable, the characters genuine, the story interesting and engaging. I absolutely loved this story and, despite the wicked cliffie, or because of it, cannot wait for more.
