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. 

This is the first book we chose to read together. We can't wait to share our thoughts with you.

Shon's Review:  I have to admit the the synopsis for this book caught my attention from strip clubs and truck stops to Southern coast mansion and prep school.

I can see why some people are comparing it to Hana Yori Dango (Boys over Flower/ F4), but I think because of the twins (maybe) I keep think about Ouran High School Host Club.

I think that Jennifer L. Armentrout (#1 New York Times Bestselling Author) summarize this book the best. “This generation’s Cruel Intentions.” For those of you who have not seen Cruel Intentions, look it up.

Any how, I like this book. I just hate the ending. Now I have to wait till the next book come out to see what happen next.

Wendy's Thoughts: Yasss! I'm so pre-ordering the 2nd book. This book literally has it all. A very complicated love story. A typical B*tch. A slut. Hot buff dudes. Parties. Money. Strip clubs. Lawyers. Cars. Drugs. Sex. Did i mention MONEY! oh the drama in this book is just too juicy. 

Tina's Take: This is sooooooo F4!!!!

Same kind of violence. And perhaps a kinkier version of Hana Yori Dango.

I love the family dynamic. They are so good with each other. Watching over one another and keeping each other safe. Love each of the brothers and their strange personalities.

The girl is definitely a trashy version of dirt poor Makino Tsukushi (snicker).

Omg there's an evil stepmother role (amazing!) I knew it!!!!!! I knew she is controlling the boys through drugs or hypnosis. Her carefully scripted lines and actions all pointed to it. Evil!!
