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.
The Royals was my crack series for the year. I sort of read it for the same reason I watch daytime soap, a way to unwind and to be amused with the unrealistic drama. That being said, Twisted Palace was not as near as entertaining as its predecessors, but it wasn’t necessary bad either.
I think my biggest problem with this book was that it was predictable. The twists in it were soapy but more like non-sweeps soapy versus crackalicious soapy.
Case in point, I figured out the murder mystery in maybe a grand total of fifteen pages.
But again, I don’t think the book was written to really be this big mystery. But the resolution to the mystery and the circumstances surrounding it were a little flat. It was more or less like the book was written at this point to be a ship book and while I did love the ship in the earlier books, I was sort of over them.
Really my biggest problem with Twisted Palace, besides the fact it was so damn predictable that after the previous installment it was such a let down.
The second book in this series, Broken Prince, ended on such a high note and it might’ve been one of those books that ended on too high of a note. Where regardless of what the writers ends up writing it’s going to be a bit of a let down.
Like I said, not a bad book but boy was this one a let down.
I’m glad I read it though, if that makes any sense. I mean, it gave me the closure I wanted and needed for this series. But after this one, I am fine with this series being over.
