I can’t believe it’s taken me this long to pick this little beauty up and read it. I have just begun the most ridiculously delicious obsession with these Royals.
Wow. What an all consuming, highly addictive, fast paced, hot as hell story this has turned out to be. And holy cliffhanger batman! In a way, I’m kind of glad I waited, because the second this review is posted, I will be diving into book 2!
“Somewhere along the line, I started thinking that if I just got through this bad experience, this bad day, that tomorrow I’d have something better, brighter, newer.
I still believe that. I still believe that there’s something good out there for me. I just have to keep going until my time comes.”
I don’t even know how much I want to tell you guys about this book. But I’ll say this much… Ella is left an orphan when her mother passes away. As a young teenager, she steals her mothers I.D to work in a strip club for money, forges signatures to keep herself in school and avoid being sent to an orphanage until her father’s best friend turns up at her school. Callum Royal claims to be her legal guardian and has all the paperwork to prove it. When she refuses to leave with him, he shows up at her work and literally throws her over his shoulder and into his car. They turn up to his mansion where she will now live with Callum and his four sons (there’s five of them but one lives out of home – Gideon, Reed -the hero, Easton, and twins Sawyer & Sebastian). Callum offers her a heap of money to hang around, plus more if she gets through college. She doesn’t really have a choice but to stay.
“My skill, if I have one, isn’t dancing. It’s my ability to believe that tomorrow can be a better day.”
The Royal boys are literally like royalty. Everyone knows them, and no one messes with them. In the first few chapters, I honestly had no idea what to expect from Callum and his boys. The boys are rude, obnoxious, unappreciative, privileged assholes. But oh em gee. They are to die for. I don’t really know any other way to describe them. They’re jackasses really, but I’m completely mesmerised by them.
“I’m only seventeen. Sometimes that feels too young to have lived the life I have. Sometimes I look around at my surroundings and think, I don’t belong here”
Gah! Erin Watt (author duo Elle Kennedy + Jen Frederick) are an incredible team that have produced one of the most addictive reads I’ve come across. The ‘feel’ of this book kinda reminds me of Tijan’s Fallen Crest series. If you love those books, you will definitely need to pick this one up!
I’m so bloody giddy right now. I’m flying through this review so I can start the next book because I am just dying to know what the hell is going on in their crazy world!
If you’re after a highly addictive, insanely fabulous and deliciously sexy read, I’ve found it for you.
