Publisher Description

“This generation’s Cruel Intentions.” Jennifer L. Armentrout, #1 New York Times Bestselling Author

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 is up for pre-sale and it will be released July 25, 2016.

5++ Stars! (minor spoilers below)

5++ Stars! (minor spoilers below)

This book was amazing! I need more!!!! I absolutely love Ella and Reed. Ella is so strong yet vulnerable. And Reed is so protective and stand offish but then when he's with Ella he's so sweet! The comment about him never ever doing PDA so the fact that he does it with Ella is awesome. I'm so intrigued by him though because clearly there are a lot of things we don't know about him. At the end i was like NOOOO!!! The next book can't come soon enough. I also love the rest of the Royal boys. Easton clearly has demons but he's so sweet. I want to know who he was thinking about when he kissed Ella!!! He was so super sweet when Ella got him out of a sticky situation and he asked her not to leave because se belonged with them <3. I'm intrigued by the twins as well! The fact that they're sharing a girlfriend is a little crazy lol I hope their father, Callum, can repair their relationship and become closer. Overall, this book was great and i can't wait until Broken Prince comes out.

Good book but very cheesy...a lot of rich kid drama

I’ve read this book several times and even though I do like it I find myself rolling my eyes a lot especially after out of the blue Reed calls Ella baby. What? Even though I don’t like a book to drag on,I think events in the book happened a little too fast. Everything that happened from the time Ella arrived to the Royal house to the end happened in a span of one month and a lot happened in that timeframe. I thought sometimes I was reading a CW show. Lots a rich kid drama. It’s like the author was obsessed with watching Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, and The o.c. and wanted to write a book in honour of her favourite shows. I just personally thought it was just a little too fast and unrealistic especially for the audience that is going to read this book(young women)but for what it’s worth it is a fictional book. The book is good if you don’t mind a fast romance, rich kids problems, angsty rich boys(that are of course all sexy), soap opera-like drama, and predictable like a hallmark movie.
