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.

Twisted Palace took me far longer to finish then it should’ve. I mean it took me weeks to even get to the half waypoint. And when I finally finished it, I felt a bit underwhelmed and I’m not entirely sure how I feel about this.

Twisted Palace is book three in the highly addictive series by Erin Watt. I mean I read Paper Princess and Broken Prince in the same day because of how addicting they were. But Twisted Palace was just underwhelming. For me, it lacked the addictiveness that Paper Princess and Broken Prince had.

Twisted Palace had Gossip Girl meets Cruel Intentions with a dash of Pretty Little Liars (all the secrets included) and at one point I was just tired. I was tired of all the characters minus Easton because he’s bae oh and Val and Wade because I need to know what the hell is going on there.

Ella was just annoying this book, her planning and her attitude. I just couldn’t tolerate her this time around.

Reed is the character I still couldn’t fall in love with. Easton owns my heart and there’s nothing Reed or any of the other Royals can do about it. In this book, I felt like Reed matured while Ella backtracked. The only frustrating thing for me was that Reed still wouldn’t have sex with Ella. JUST DO IT ALREADY! Was basically my mentality throughout the whole book.

I was frustrated throughout the majority of the book and when it finally ended, I felt like I knew that was going to happen and that disappointed me. I don’t know if it was basic I guessed the suspect or because I just wanted more of the Royals.

Overall, this was an addictive series. Like did I really need to sleep or interact with human beings while I read this? Nope. I have seen that Erin Watt will be writing Easton’s book so best believe I’m handing them my money ASAP. I’m still crossing my fingers and toes that I’ll get a Wade and Val book. Should you read this? I’d recommend it especially if you’re in a reading slump. FYI: BUY ALL THREE BOOKS AT ONCE BECAUSE YOU’RE GOING TO NEED THEM.
