Book Review : paper princess erin watt
Paper Princess: A Novel (The Royals) - Erin Watt

September 14- 19

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. 



Review : I really enjoyed this book it was a good book Ella has lost her mom and is stripping until a man comes to her saying he's her guardian . He brings her to his home to live with his sons and they all don't get along Reed thinks that Ella is sleeping with his dad and wants something out of this situation and she does she wants to graduate and go to college . Her and Easton start to get along a little bit and end up getting a bit drunk and kiss she really wants Reed but they are very cat and mouse . I really like Ella's relationship with her friend val they are good for each other . Ella wants a truce with all the royals peace in the house and Reed agrees . Ella goes out with this guy who is a fucking piece of garbage he drugs her and all the Royals stand up for her and the next day they get back at him it was awesome . Ella and Reed start to get hot and heavy at times Reed tells Ella he's bad for her but she doesn't care she wants him . Ella's birth father gives most of her money and company to her and his wife isn't to happy I feel bad Ella didn't get to know her dad but it seems he would of loved Ella and then something nuts happens Brooke who is the father's ex girlfriend is in Reed's room WHAT THE FUCK and Ella runs away .

Quotes:
You may have lost your family, but you’re not alone anymore, Ella. You’re a Royal now.”

The Royal boys are not what I expected. They don’t look like rich pricks in preppy clothes. They look like terrifying thugs who can snap me like a twig.

“I’m not decent.” “Like I give a shit. You’ve got five seconds and then I’m coming in.”

So what happened? Bump your head on the dashboard when you were blowing your brother last night?” He laughs, then glances at the doorway behind me. “Hear that, Reed? Our new sister thinks I blew you last night.”

“Little sis, I can’t show you my goods. I’m so fine, just the sight of me would ruin you for all other men.”

Sawyer reaches out his hand, tucks a strand of red hair behind her ear and— Oh my God. That’s not Sawyer. My jaw falls open. The nasty burn on his hand, the one he got earlier this week when he’d bungled dinner, is gone. But it had been there yesterday—I remember seeing it. Which means the guy with Sawyer’s girlfriend isn’t Sawyer. It’s Sebastian.

Relax, little Royals. Play all the creepy sex games you want. My lips are sealed.”


My brother’s a good lay.” His eyes gleam. “But he’s not as good as me.”


Oh my God. Was that a laugh? Reed Royal laughs, folks. Someone call the Vatican because an honest-to-God miracle has occurred.”

I didn’t know Steve. He didn’t know me. But as I sit here battling my shock, I suddenly realize that he loved me. Or at least, he’d wanted to love me. And my heart aches that I never got the chance to love him back.

In the Middle of Somewhere by Roan Parrish 5 Star Review
In the Middle of Somewhere - Roan Parrish


Daniel Mulligan is tough, snarky, and tattooed, hiding his self-consciousness behind sarcasm. Daniel has never fit in—not at home in Philadelphia with his auto mechanic father and brothers, and not at school where his Ivy League classmates looked down on him. Now, Daniel’s relieved to have a job at a small college in Holiday, Northern Michigan, but he’s a city boy through and through, and it’s clear that this small town is one more place he won’t fit in.

Rex Vale clings to routine to keep loneliness at bay: honing his muscular body, perfecting his recipes, and making custom furniture. Rex has lived in Holiday for years, but his shyness and imposing size have kept him from connecting with people.

When the two men meet, their chemistry is explosive, but Rex fears Daniel will be another in a long line of people to leave him, and Daniel has learned that letting anyone in can be a fatal weakness. Just as they begin to break down the walls keeping them apart, Daniel is called home to Philadelphia, where he discovers a secret that changes the way he understands everything.

 

Review

 

Whoa. This is a good book. The kind I am going to read again and again.

Rex and Daniel are great nuanced characters. Each chapter reveals more and more about each hero. As their love grows, we love them more.

 

This is romance is a lot about emotional intimacy and being vulnerable. Rex has suffered and so has Daniel. But for all that the book is cheerful and funny as much it is shadowed. Just like life.

 

Dialogue, main character development and setting as well as a cast of characters that make each of these men's lives full, rich and complicated make this book a joy to read. Watching them fall and love and hope for a live together is a real pleasure. Oh, and it is super sexy too!

The Queen's Poisoner (The Kingfountain Series #1) (Audiobook)
The Queen's Poisoner (The Kingfountain Series Book 1) - Jeff Wheeler

Well, this was a strange one. This can't be considered YA, but the POV character is an eight-year old boy. Which also makes getting a woman narrator that much more strange. She does okay with the material, but her voices for the men were not the best. 

 

The story itself was pretty straightforward and includes many of the staples of the fantasy genre. There is some subversion of tropes, so that was nice, but even those weren't anything that were all that surprising. 

 

I probably would've stopped listening halfway through, but that's about the time that Elizabeth Victoria Mortimer arrived on the scene, and she's an absolute delight of a character and most of the stars are for her. Without her, there wouldn't be anyone to really care about in this story.

 

If you're looking for a story along the lines of Game of Thrones, look elsewhere. If you're looking for something light and breezy with a bit of intrigue to read on a lazy day, this might be the ticket.
