29519517

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.

Review

Twisted Palace, the title of the third book in Erin Watt’s The Royals series, foreshadows the state of not only the Royal homestead but also the society of Astor as a whole because it may look beautiful on the outside with all of its money, power, and prestige, but as Erin Watt takes readers inside the maelstrom that’s brewing due to Brooke’s death, we see firsthand that the ugliness within always finds a way to wrap itself around anyone and anything that gets in its way.

Secrets, lies, and manipulation have been the state of affairs in Astor since Ella Harper entered this picture perfect world in Paper Princess, and as readers wade through the shitstorm that’s settled at the Royals’ door, we grow to understand that it’s not necessarily the Royals who will ruin everyone in their path…it’s more that with one accusation…one arrest warrant…one societal view of a murder suspect, the Royals’ royal place in Astor will crumble to the ground, perhaps living a family without their prince and a princess without her knight in tarnished armor.

The first aspect of The Royals series that lured me in was the world that Erin Watt created. The Royals’ society is flashy, egoistical, and there’s an established hierarchy that dictates all aspects of life. The Royal men have dominated this domain, forcing everyone to bow down to them and support their every whim. But times they are a changin and with Reed ensconced in a murder case and the Royals’ decision to allow trailer trash into their home and their hearts, the reign of the Royals is under fire, and as their weaknesses are being exposed, Ella’s ready to run while Reed chooses to fight regardless of how hopeless it may be.

I’m 100% Team Reed…in fact, I’m 100% Team Royal because while this family may be one hell of a hot mess, as a united front, there’s nothing they can’t do, and Ella Harper…O’Halloran…Royal becomes the backbone and the salvation of the Royal family, providing them with a much more enlightened view of the world they live in, especially in terms of who and what matters most.

I truly hope readers haven’t seen the end of the Royals because there is so much more of their story to tell…the other Royal princes need to find their princesses and the King of the Royals needs to find a way to move past the revelations that rocked his world at its core and work out exactly what he wants his life to be.
