These Royals will ruin you…
From wharf fights and school brawls to crumbling lives inside glittery mansions, one guy tries to save himself.
Reed Royal has it all—looks, status, money. The girls at his elite prep school line up to date him, the guys want to be him, but Reed never gave a damn about anyone but his family until Ella Harper walked into his life.
What started off as burning resentment and the need to make his father’s new ward suffer turned into something else entirely—keep Ella close. Keep Ella safe. But when one foolish mistake drives her out of Reed’s arms and brings chaos to the Royal household, Reed’s entire world begins to fall apart around him.
Ella doesn’t want him anymore. She says they’ll only destroy each other.
She might be right.
Secrets. Betrayal. Enemies. It’s like nothing Reed has ever dealt with before, and if he’s going to win back his princess, he’ll need to prove himself Royally worthy.
I won’t write a big review for this book, I loved this book but I want you to discover the story and what happens to the characters.
The story takes place just after Paper Princess, Ella is gone and… I’m stopping there.
In Broken Prince I both like and dislike Ella, I like her because she can stay strong and she’s not letting Reed win her heart easily. I like her because she has strength against bad person like Brooke. She doesn’t let them see how much their actions hurt her. A thing I didn’t like in Broken Prince is her reaction with Reed, she’s mad at him and she’s hurt, I’m totally ok with that. But why did she act like a whore, it’s not her at all, she’s not Brooke so WHY?
Reed is not a bad guy, he is just hurt, and his mother’s suicide let him weak and angry with his father. I like him even if he takes bad decisions very often.
A character I love so much is Easton, he is broken and I just want to take him in my arms and console him. He loves Ella, like a sister and when he learns what Reed did, he’s angry, first at Reed, and second at Ella because she abandoned him, like his mother. He has drugs problem and love problem too.
I really like this book, everything is in there, love, friendship, trust, forgiveness, family, treason, past and this end is a big cliffhanger for two things.
After Paper Princess, I had questions about Gideon and some are resolved, but now I have a lot more questions with this big cliffhanger. I won’t talk about it here because I can’t spoil you but I need the third book because this series and these characters are very addictive. You can fight all you want but in the end you will love them all.
I’ve read the two book in two days, so you can see I like them and they are real fast reading, well written by two amazing author.
