From mortal enemies to unexpected allies, two teenagers try to protect everything that matters most.
Ella Harper has met every challenge that life has thrown her way. She’s tough, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to defend the people she loves, but the challenge of a long-lost father and a boyfriend whose life is on the line might be too much for even Ella to overcome.
Reed Royal has a quick temper and even faster fists. But his tendency to meet every obstacle with violence has finally caught up with him. If he wants to save himself and the girl he loves, he’ll need to rise above his tortured past and tarnished reputation.
No one believes Ella can survive the Royals. Everyone is sure Reed will destroy them all.
They may be right.
With everything and everyone conspiring to keep them apart, Ella and Reed must find a way to beat the law, save their families, and unravel all the secrets in their Twisted Palace.
I'm glad I read all three books in the series back to back. My favorite is still the first one, Paper Princess. I think it's because there was a lot more sexual tension instead of actual sex. I liked Ella and Reed's dynamics in book one much better than this one.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not opposed to sex in books, but I don't need it to move the story along, nor do I need it all the time. But that's just one person's opinion.
Did the ending surprise me? Yes and no. I didn't guess who did it, but found myself saying at the end that I should have known.
I don't know if the authors are planning any kind of sequel - but I could use me some more Easton Royal. :)
