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.

OMG!!!! Up and down, down and, up again!!!! This book was one crazy roller coaster, and frankly, it’s left me feeling both excited and dizzy… I can’t even form the words to describe this book right now.

True to the nature of the story this third book was every bit as shocking and angsty, as the past two. The Royal’s continue to be their addictive selves, and us readers continue to eat it all up, and of course crave more. I don’t think I could ever get enough of these Royals, and there’s still so much more I need to know.


By now Ella has embraced her place inside the Royal family; she loves them all, and they all love her. Together they form a team, that loyally works at always protecting one another, no matter what.

Reed is in trouble, being wrongly accused, and while it’s really hard to believe it wasn’t him who committed the crime due to his violent nature, Ella and his family don’t care, they are going to help him!

Ella’s past comes back and is messing up with her plans for her mission to help Reed. She’s not used to having people tell her what to do since she’s always been on her own. But now she has people who care for her, even has managed to make a few friends. Her instinct to run away when things get hard is always present and it’s Reed who is teaching her a new concept, to stay and fight for what she loves, for what she believes in. So, Ella is trying to learn to rely on others and to accept that she can count on the people who love her.

After the initial shock in which the story starts with , the book was a bit of a slow burn. So many questions but not enough answers. After the 50% mark, I had to literally buckle up, because the plot got very bumpy. Despite the drama and all the twists, my favorite thing about these books was how strong was the love and support the Royal’s have for each other. No questions asked, they accept, and love each other, for exactly who they are.

These books are so addictive that I could read them forever. I really hope these authors are planning on writing more, because I still want to know what happens to Easton, Gideon, the twins, and even their dad, I think he should get his own book. Mr. Royal was so awesome in this last book, that he really made an impact in my heart, so yeah you can say I have the hots for every single Royal there is.

I will do some investigating and find out if in fact there will be more books, and will share the news with EVERYONE because these books are totally awesome.

4 Stars!
Ella Harper’s life has been one challenge after another. After moving to Bayview & a complicated start with the Royals, she’s come to care about them all. There were her enemies, then allies, and are now her family. She can’t imagine them not in her life. When her long lost father returns & Reed finds himself in some trouble, everything Ella holds dear is in jeopardy. Ella is tough, & will fight for the people she loves.
Ella & Reed suddenly feel like the universe is conspiring to keep them apart. They are two teenagers desperately trying to protect everything that matters to them. Reed’s life is on the line & his quick temper continues to sabotage him. Can this young couple find a way to overcome all the obstacles in their way & be together?
-“One kiss wasn’t enough.” One anything is never enough with this girl. I don’t know how I ever lived without her.

-She got under my skin the moment I met her, and she’s still there, in my blood, in my heart.
