Review Paper Princess by Erin Watt

Synopsis: 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.

My thoughts:
 

 


Sorry, I just need to get this off my chest — THAT.
FUCKING. CLIFFHANGER.
 
 

Okay, I’ll behave. Hopefully. Paper Princess is awesome
in the distinct manner of being such an addictive, electrifying and
soap-opera-ish novel. Truly, you need to take it as it is and you’ll be
destined for eternal love. Don’t expect anything dazzling, it’s still NA, and
while NA can be deep and touching, it still has a vibe of entertainment
purposes. It goes straight to the heart. And
Paper Princess traps you in and doesn’t let go.
Seriously, it’s 5AM. 

The story is cliché-ish enough, but still — loads
of fun and loads of teen angst and loads of Mean Girls vibes
and loads of sexy times and loads of bad boys and loads of this and that which
make everything perfect in the end. Yeah, you’re frustrated quite a lot, but
it’s so so satisfying. Does that make sense? 

I did not expect to like it so much. I wanted
something cute and fluffy and light, and although this book has all these
qualities to a certain extent, one thing that distinguishes it from the
ever-growing sea of contemporary titles is its fresh narrative that simply
pulls you in. 

 

Not gonna talk about the plot — shh, there isn’t any
honestly
 — read the synopsis and you’re pretty much good to go; but
you need to know a couple of things: Ella, badass chick, strength incarnate,
optimist extraordinaire; the Royal brothers (5 of them, IMAGINE THAT MUCH
PHYSICAL PERFECTION
), fucking assholes, intense dudes, and goddamn
lovable actually. Reed is a tough nut to crack but the essential is that you’ll
fall in love with him in no time. And while I do love him (most of the time), EASTON IS MINEEEE. Gah, I just realized I haven’t fangirled
so hard in a while. 


I suppose I should mention the sizzling romance
too since it’ll most likely get everyone hot and bothered. Oh well, there’s
that. Wowza wowza wowza hyperventilating-required stuff. 
Add high school drama, daddy issues, mommy
issues, shit loads of money, forbidden feelings and FEELS and ta-daa you’ve got
yourself a book. 

On the other hand though, that ending pretty much
killed me. I was expecting it — everyone said it’d be brutal. AND IT IS. How???? Whyyy??? So many questions that I hope have
some justifiable, clever, redeemable answers because I need the Royals to
establish some peace in their household. 
And the sequel comes out in a few days yassss
bring on the juicy drama and sobs and pterodactyl screeches. 

So yeah, go read it. If it hasn’t been evident
enough, I’ll stress this further: 
GO READ IT. Go ahead, abandon yourself to the heartache! *cackles maniacally*
