These Royals will ruin you…
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 love this series to PIECES. This one was a bit more suspenseful than the other ones though and had me hanging by the edge of my seat the whole way through (I won’t say why in case you haven’t read the other two books). Anyway, I guess the authors were right. These Royals WILL ruin you. Once you get into them, you can’t possibly get enough. That’s exactly how I am feeling. Due to this, I would LOVE to see more happen with this series (although I don’t think this is going to happen). I mean, this can’t be it, can it? I need more REED and the rest of the crew in my life. Pronto! << I think my little rant shows how much I love this series and this book. With that being said, I HIGHLY recommend it. If you haven’t read it yet make sure that you read the series in order as they are all connected.

So this book starts off right where Broken Prince (book #2) leaves off. Brooke has been killed and Reed Royal has been implicated for her murder. But did he do it? We all know that Reed had a serious distaste for Brook, she is after all, a lying and scheming BITCH. But would this bad boy go as far as to kill her to save his own reputation? Or is there other sinister things going on. Well, you will have to read to find out!
The relationship between Reed and Ella is better than before in this installment of the Royals series. Readers can feel the growth between both characters and will certainly be cheering them on the whole way though. The rest of the gang is also back, but not as evident as they were in the first two books. This was a tad bit disappointing to me as I am a huge fan of the Royal brothers, but I can understand that in order for the story to go where it needed to go that this had to do. Finally, readers should expect the unexpected with this one. You may think you know who the killer is. You may think you know who is innocent and who is guilty. But you don’t. Be prepared to be shocked because I was!
Overall, this is a fantastic series with just the right amount of drama and the perfect amount of angst. I highly recommend it to all readers as it has seriously become one of my favorite series of the year! So pick up you copy (or copies) now and read it! You won’t be disappointed!
