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. 

Lori's thoughts: This is a book that flew beneath my radar until I started reading all of the book bloggers year end wrap-ups and how many of them chose this as one of their favorite reads of 2016. On a whim, I decided to take a break from the horror and action-packed-no-romance type books I've been reading recently and read Paper Princess. Honestly? I'm so glad I waited to read this after all three of the books in the trilogy were out! I would have been so mad if I finished book one and had to wait... there's a doozy of a cliffhanger!

I think that Ella is one of the best heroines I've read in a very long time. She has moxie! ;) She is tough on the outside and has a heart on the inside. She's had a tough life and winds up in the lap of luxury. But that doesn't mean that her life gets any easier. On the contrary.

Although this book is written about high school characters, it's more mature than YA. I'd classify it as a NA as far as the maturity level of the content.

Highly recommended. I am thankful that I downloaded all three books to my Kindle at the same time! Reading book two in the series right now.
