Hope you all had a good reading month I plan to read a few thrillers in October
An excellent story and a creative world dreamed up by author Trevena. The reader can't help but empathize with the main character, Maeve, and her dire circumstances dealing with her evil Uncle Lou. Her tribulations are many, but so is her quick thinking. Maeve takes the cruelest acts against her and tries in her way to make them right. Revenge, but in a unique and twisted way. The descriptions of the people she meets, her friend, and the places she visits are deeply cultivated within the rich world that the author ables us to see and feel. The stairs leading up to a better place may not be the stairway to heaven after all. The winding plot gets thicker, as more revelations push Maeve into drastic situations requiring extreme measures. There is a lot of bad happening in this dystopian world, not only for Maeve. Still, there is hope, and the twist, in the end, will give hope. It also leads well into the next story. You'll want to pick up the next in the series. Well written and provoking book, I recommend you read the series.
Not as good as previous volumes, but it would be hard to keep up the same amazing, dynamite good times forever. And this issue is bad times all around, from the plight of the character in the local timeline, to the ill fated time traveler they meet along the way, bad things happen to every woman in this volume.
And can we just stop publishing anything men have to say about women getting their periods? Like, forever? In general, it hasn't bothered me that all of the creative team on this book is men, but for that specific subplot, I do not have enough eye rolling to convey my disappointment.
Over at goodreads, karen wrote an extremely accurate response to reading this, and included some panels. Including a screen shot of one of the last pages, which left me super interested in the next volume even if I didn't love this.
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 .
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.
