Review:Broken Prince by Erin Watt

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.

 What I thought about Broken Prince

In Book Two of The Royals series by Erin Watt, Reed Royal must deal with Ella's disappearance and Brooke's deceptions. Lot's of only-the-rich-can-get-away-with-it stuff coming your way in Broken Prince.

The story alternates between Reed's point of view and Ella's point of view and I liked that we got inside the head of one of the Royals, because they are one messed up family.

Ella's return home is stressed out, and she's not about to forgive Reed for his lies and deceptions.  I really liked that about her. Complicating things is the fact that the Royal boys seemed to have lost favor at the prep school and Ella has some new and returning frenemies to fight.  It's Mean Girls and Fight Club all wrapped up into one story.

It felt like not much happened in Broken Prince, but then again, there are some twists and turns that will have you thinking everyone this family touches better watch out.  The Royals will ruin you is the tagline and the authors really show just how low the Royal boys will go. Ella does her utmost to stay out of their path, but falls to Reed's charm in one of the brighter moments in this dark series.

There's a cliffhanger that will have some readers salivating for more in this series -- maybe you'll see it coming, because one thing is for certain, and that's these authors aren't going to leave things all hearts and unicorns for Ella. 

I'm still not sure exactly how I feel about this series.  It has captured my interest, in the same way the old evening soap operas like Dallas and Dynasty did back in their day.  There are some depraved people in this story and the crazy things they do keep me turning the pages. I'm hoping there's more to it though, and I'm waiting to see how things are all going to come together (or fall apart) by the end of this series.

So another interesting installment with some predictable scenes and some that are a bit of a surprise. Ella was terrific, and I liked Callum a whole lot more in this one too, at least he shows some backbone as a father. I liked Reed too -- I'm not sure about the rest of the family though!

Looking forward to seeing how this all wraps up.
