REVIEW; Broken Prince (The Royals #2), by Erin Watt

Rating: 

Genre: New-Adult, Romance

Recommend: So Much Yes


Book 2 of 3


SPOILERS 

Summary:

When Ella walked into Reed Royal's life, he wanted her gone. Now she has run off, heartbroken, and Reed will do anything to bring her back and earn her trust again. 
Around him the school is falling apart and he is surrounded by deceit and blackmail and his brothers blaming him. Ella can't handle any more lies or hurt but her heart misses Reed. No matter how much they really want each other, they know they aren't good together and Reed has a challenge on his hands to win her back.

My Thoughts:

After the cliffhanger of book 1 I was so excited to read what would happen between Reed and Ella. This book has it all! 
  • Broken Heart
  • Grovelling
  • Secrets
  • Lies
  • Manipulative Barbie Witch
  • Barbie Bitch
  • Attempted Murder
  • Actual Murder
  • Plot twist that will give you 4 heart-attacks and kill you until Twisted Palace is released in October.


Story: I think it's always hard to write a brilliant 2nd book after such a successful 1st one but this blew me away. There was so much drama but everything is intertwined and delivered beautifully and woven into the overall story rather than random plot twists with no substance. And another cliffhanger! Or 2 really!! WHAT THE HELLLLLL!?!?! The writing in this is not astounding by any means, but the story is just so addictive and I can't stop reading. We also get to find out a little more about all the brothers, which is great, and then Brooke doing her best at ruining lives and just creating even more drama...

Reed: A lot of this book is from Reed's POV. This is necessary to fill in the blanks after Ella has run away. I'm usually not a fan of male POV's due to them being poorly represented but it sort of worked in this. His control and power was palpable and it was clear which chapters were told from Reed or Ella's POV just by the writing. 

Ella: I love her fighting spirit. She is so strong and proud and doesn't allow them to walk over her. Even though she still has feelings for Reed she remains so strong in her standing in making him properly work for her forgiveness and mean it. She is definitely far from a weak push over. I absolutely loved the scene where Ella humiliated Jordan at school. Brilliant.  

Overall:

This series sucks you in and breaks your heart each time, but it's totally worth the pain and torment for The Royals.  Just hurry up October, please!
