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.

My Review:
5 “Reed Can Ruin Me Anytime” Stars

Scandalous. Sexy. Shocking. Salacious. Highly Addictive and Compelling. This series is the bomb. I totally love it.

Major credit to Elle and Jen for writing such a captivating, entertaining story. I can’t remember the last time I was this invested in a series, and it’s easily one of my favorites now. Sheer Genius.

Reed – can we just take a moment? He was a total ass in the last book but I fell for him all the same (cuz I’m a bit shallow like that.) I loved his character development in this book, and how he didn’t give up on Ella. I also loved how he let her take the lead but also stepped in to protect her where necessary.

I adore Ella – she’s a fantastic MC and the only one with any semblance of morality. She really came into her own in the second half of the book when she stood up to the bullies in school, and she didn’t shy away from telling Callum a few home truths. She is a great blend of strength and vulnerability.

I LOVE them as a couple and I’m totally rooting for them. The chemistry was amazing and all the romance/sexy scenes were perfect.

I love East too. Poor little lost boy. I hope he gets his own book as I didn’t see nearly enough of him here. In fact, I really hope Erin Watt take advantage of all the other stories they could write. I could continue reading about The Royals till I die.

Brooke and Dinah continue to grate on my nerves even though we don’t see that much of them here. You know they are waiting in the wings to cause more trouble.

This book is full of twists and turns, conflict and angst, and I lapped it all up. Because I only read PP the night before and I was kept awake half the night by that bloody brilliant cliffy, I came up with my own list of plot twists. The two revelations at the end of this book were great but I had them on my list so I can’t say I was overly shocked. To be honest, I’m glad, because I was actually terrified to read the end of this book. I kept thinking, if the cliffy is as bad as book one I won’t be able to sleep, eat, concentrate on work, or read another damned book until Twisted Palace is out. So while it’s still suspenseful, and I want to know what’s going to happen next, I think I can just about hold myself intact until the next book is ready.

If you don’t like the shock-factor or soap-opera-type drama then you should steer clear of this series. It is definitely more explicit than your average YA book but I don’t doubt it’s authenticity and I applaud the authors for going there. It was so entertaining as a result and it really does stand out from the crowd.

The writing is fantastic and it’s fast-paced. It’s virtually unputdownable so make sure you set aside a decent chunk of time to read it because someone will have to pry it away from you otherwise!

If you haven’t started this series yet then what are you waiting for!

Thanks to Elle’s publicist for providing an ARC of this book in exchange for my honest review.

As an aside this would be awesome on the small screen.

    1. I can’t wait to hear what you think of it! I bet you will love it too. It’s such an addictive series! I tweeted Erin Watt and at the moment there are no plans to write any more books after Twisted Palace. I suggested a petition for an Easton book because I really want to read his story too (and Gideon and those naughty twins) – Lol! Reed is great in this book – you can really see his career progression. Enjoy 🙂
