2.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas [NOT YOUNG ADULT] What could have been a great story, shot down by unlikable characters, dubious consent concerns, and worse. 16 de junio de 2016
Por C. Hobbins - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato: Tapa blanda Compra verificada
I need to say right up front: This book is marketed as "Young Adult", and it is anything BUT. The category is defined by the themes contained within the story. Just because your main characters are all about 17-year olds, that doesn't make you a YA book. YA and I are so close we're practically family. This book was like a stranger at the dinner table.

I actually interrupted another book to read this one, and I'm still not sure why. It's not even in my normal genre preference. I just remember reading the summary, seeing the cover, and thinking "I'd like to read that." Ella Harper was an interesting main character, full of spirit, and she led her story well. The writing was even pretty decent for the first 2/3rd of the book.

Call me old-fashioned, when we decide "attempted date rape" is the best catalyst for getting the two leads to hook up, the story stops being enjoyable. Now, the male lead, Reed Royal, did not actually attempt the date rape, but when Ella is drugged and the Royal brothers save her, how is the natural conclusion "Someone is gonna need to 'help' her with her drug-induced horniness." Sorry, what? WHAT? So maybe Reed Royal didn't attempt the date rape, but he's 1000000% guilty of engaging in dubious consent.

"I feel like I'm taking advantage of you."

Yes, Reed, because you are! Ella is high on a date-rape cocktail, and you're like "Well, but she said she was okay with me 'helping' her, so..." This isn't even the only incident like this in the story. At one point Reed actually *propositions* her while they're out yachting, saying that she's a dirty whore but he'll take care of her sexual needs as long as she doesn't touch the rest of his family. Ella's second morning in the household, two of her new "brothers" joke about raping her. To Ella's credit, she does point out to the readers "Sexual assault isn't about getting laid. It's about power.", indicating they don't need to use sex to have power over her.

Ella's actually very good about playing it smart. It's something that made her extremely likeable as a character. (Up until sex was involved, and suddenly she can't think at all.) She knows a handsome face doesn't make someone a good person. Ella gets the difference between what her body wants and what her mind wants. She knows the value of education as a means to rise above poor circumstances. Ella Harper has lots of qualities that make her a great main character.

Remember when I said the writing was good for the first 2/3rds of the book and was not Young Adult? The last third of this book read like a smutty magazine you'd find under a mattress. Nevermind that Ella was smart and self-sufficient. Once she and Reed hook up, it's like sex-sex-sex all the time on her brain. She can barely look at Reed without wanting to get busy with him, and the book goes into GRAPHIC detail about their sexual encounters. Look, bedroom doors were invented for a reason. These are 17-year olds. I don't need to hear all the gory details of whose fingers are going where. ...I'm gonna say it again for good measure: SEVENTEEN-YEAR OLDS.

It's a shame that I power read through the first 2/3 so quickly because the story was engaging, yet it's the uglier remaining third that's leaving such an imprint on my mind. The first part of the book actually had a good premise, familiar but solid. Poor girl with nothing gets plucked from obscurity into a life of riches. I didn't even take issue with the idea that she was stripping when we first meet her, because she's doing it to survive. Can't fault someone for surviving, and she's smart about her work, putting her safety and schooling first. I actually had to pause around page 55 and split a side from laughing. "Four boys who rule the school, and their decree sets the law for how poor-girl Ella will be treated." I've seen this premise before, and lemme tell ya, I LOVE Hana Yori Dango. Downside? The boys in HYD weren't such *complete* a-holes, unlike the Royals, and they actually learned and grew from their experiences in the story. The only redeemable character in this bunch is Easton. He's the only one that makes up for his initial behavior and makes an attempt to be better with Ella. I see so many reviews for this story chittering on about how great all the boys are and I'm like "...Seriously?" Either their standards for men are terrible, or mine are too high. Maybe both? Easton was sweet, Gideon was neutral, and the other three were like "Please go to other side of your mansion house and never interact with Ella again, thank you."

There was ONE saving grace of the distasteful sexual content that I feel warrants a shout out. Mean Girl Savannah, one of Ella's arch nemeses, takes the time to warn her of her potential date rapist (albiet too cryptically for Ella to get it). "Look, I don't like you much, but I wouldn't let even my worst enemy be sucked in by him." She put aside all her issues with Ella to warn her. I 100% support girls looking out for other girls. More of this in the book and less of the boot knocking, and this might have been the story I hoped it was going to be.

I debated with myself at some length whether to round up or down for my site rating. The book was a solid 2.5 stars for me. The book had plenty of enjoyable material (round up), but it also had some really sketchy content (round down). Ultimately I had to ask myself "How much do I want other people reading this story? So I'm rounding down. I hate the idea of a young impressionable girl looking for a proper Young Adult book to find this one instead. Hell, I wouldn't even want a young boy to read this and get any ideas. I feel it's almost my responsibility to do what I can to discourage them both.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas So now that the parts I didn't like are out 21 de diciembre de 2016

This book was very entertaining, but it did have some concerning plot points. For instance, there is aggressive man behavior that is looked upon favorable and not called out at all. I also didn't care for the near rape scene being brushed off and handled within the family.

So now that the parts I didn't like are out, I will say that the story is entertaining and I did read the book very quickly. The plot has a massive cliffhanger that made me purchase the next book immediately.

This is a good book to pass the time, but it is NOT FOR TEEN AUDIENCES. There are graphic sex scenes and things that just aren't quite teen appropriate in my eyes. Parents should probably read the book first to determine if your kids are mature enough.

Young Adult with Very Adult Themes. Does Not Stand Alone.
The Royals Series by Erin Watt seemed to be on so many favorite lists for 2016 that I picked up the first, Paper Princess when it went on sale to see what all the fuss is about. I actually read a few pages over someone’s shoulder on a plane this fall and it caught my eye. I should preface this review by saying I bought this solely from popularity. I didn’t read the blurb or reviews first. I saw Royals and Princess, and after reading and enjoying two other ‘Royal’ type books this fall, I figured I’d really like Paper Princess.

To be honest, it read like a YA stepbrother book. While I enjoyed it, I found nothing unique about it, and Royal was a last name. It wasn’t about Royalty at all. It seemed to be a mashup of every New Adult book out there

Ella’s mother died. She had been sick for a long time and Ella took care of her, helping to pay the bills by stripping at 15. When her mom died, Ella was almost 18, so she didn’t let anyone know because she had no living relatives and didn’t want to get put into the foster system. Until one day she gets called to the Principal’s office where her new guardian was waiting. Turns out, her father, who she never knew about, was a billionaire who had just found out about her before he died in a tragic plane crash. His best friend and business partner, Callum Royal, stepped in to be her guardian.

She was ripped from everything she knew to move and live with this new family she never heard of. And they were going through their own problems. Callum had 5 very large, intimidating sons who seemed to hate her on sight. They recently lost their mother and didn’t need more change in their lives. The 5 handsome boys went to a private school that they totally ruled, and couldn’t have this low-class stripper smearing their name.

"The Royal boys are not what I expected. They don't look like rich pr**ks in preppy clothes. They look like terrifying thugs who can snap me like a twig."

At first they were so mean, even thinking she might be sleeping with Callum for money.

“You should know whatever game you're playing, you can't win. Not against all of us.If you leave now, you won't be hurt. If you stay, we'll break you so bad that you'll be
crawling away.”

Maybe I’m just getting too old, but all the mean, rich, slutty girls trying to mess with Ella just seemed very cliché to me. But the mean kids and her “brothers” being mean was a lot for her to handle, plus she went from scraping pennies to make ends meet to living like a princess.

“I don’t belong in splendor; I belong in squalor. That’s what I know. It’s what I’m comfortable with, because squalor doesn’t lie to you. It’s not wrapped in a pretty package. It is what it is.”

But she worked her way in, and one son especially, Reed, took a big interest in her. Since she was being raised as part of their family, her sleeping with her “brother” was totally taboo. But the chemistry between them, no matter how much they resisted, was undeniable.

“You may have lost your family, but you’re not alone anymore, Ella. You’re a Royal now.”

The thing is, The Royals are more messed up than you can know at first. But Ella has an awesome backbone. She is tough and spunky and can fight for herself.

Even though he's a jerk, Ella can’t resist Reed. (Insta-lust/teenage hormones played a big part). Reed was the meanest one to her, yet she can’t help but want him, even though every other girl has had him.

“These Royals will ruin you.”
“Maybe I want to be ruined.”

There was so much teenage angst and drama! And these kids were like no high schoolers I’ve ever seen. We live in a wealthy area and I have subbed at the private prep school around here. It just isn’t this bad, the kids are still kids. It was a lot of drama for drama’s sake.

As I said earlier, it seemed like every YA/NA trope there is mashed together. Damaged boy who lost his parent, damaged girl who lost hers, new school with mean kids, rags to riches, stepbrother, hate to love, drugs, date rape, cage fighting, gambling, virgin with manwhore, insta-lust and so much more. And then it was a cliffy! Sorry, but although I found it strangely addictive, I will not be reading more.

“Reed Royal has broken me. I’ve fallen from the sky and I’m not sure I can get up. Not this time.”

Likes:

•Ella was strong and had a backbone for most of the book.
•It was completely addictive.
•Lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing.
•Perfect narrator

Dislikes:

•Used every single YA/NA trope there is!
•It doesn’t stand alone.
•So much draaaaaaama and angst!

The Down & Dirty:

If you like YA/NA books (they are in high school, but there is sex and New Adult themes) filled with tons of angst and drama, you will probably love The Paper Princess. Everyone was just too sad, broken, mean and dramatic for me. I felt like it took every New Adult theme and added them together for one big story. The story was a touch addictive, but I found myself rolling my eyes a bit too. Perhaps late forties isn’t the demographic for this, but there are plenty of other books with characters this age that I absolutely love.

I should tell you, most of my fellow bloggers LOVED Paper Princess, so I am definitely in the minority here. If it stood alone, I would rate it higher probably, but I am sure not willing to invest in 2 more audiobooks to complete a series that I wasn’t in love with from the start.

I have wanted to read this story for a long time, but waited to take it in on Audiobook!
I knew going in that this was part of a series, and was probably one
I'd want to listen to when the other book/books were released. I'm glad I did!

The beginning had a strong start. The narration was good, although I did feel the voice definitely seemed older than a 17 year old girl. I could easily follow along with the story,
and characters. Angela Goethals did a great job distinguishing the different voices,
male and female. I will be on the lookout for other stories read by her!

The middle of the book dragged a little for me with drama, but was pretty engaging throughout. Y/A isn't normally my go to genre, so I expected more drama than normal.
By the time I got to the end, I had made up my mind to continue with book #2 Broken Prince. I'm anxious to see what happens! That ending was...WOW!

Don't want to go into the plot further and give away spoilers, but...
I will say, personally, I think this story is more of an N/A book perhaps?
It contains many sex scenes, most of which rival some of the Erotic books I read!
I'm not complaining about the sex scenes, they were written well!
Just think it's a little above being a book categorized as Young Adult reading.

Erin Watt is a combination of two different authors,
they did a good job blending their words, and emotions throughout!
I am looking forward to book two, and finding out what happens next!

When they said the Royals will destroy you, they really weren't joking...I feel..raw..after reading Paper Princess and cannot wait to read Broken Prince!! I NEED to know why Reed is the way he is and if he's gonna pull it together or lose Ella forever. Not that I think she should go back after what he's done - she would be better off never letting him back in again!! But, of course, I want them to work. He's so dysfunctional, as is the rest of the Royal family, but it's so... HOT!

Ella is AMAZING!! She's strong, independent, tenacious, and full of moxie even though her life has been utter shit up to this point. The poor girl could have let all her experiences break her and become one of the statistics, but not this Ella. No, she keeps on and doesn't let her goal of college and a better life than her past get away from her. I've realised how uncommon that is having been through some pretty brutal experiences myself, but Ella...she's something else entirely. A weaker character could never have pulled this off, so Erin Watt obviously has an amazing talent to be able to write such life-like characters that really pull you into their world....

All the Royals have their own...flaws..but Reed is the one to focus on. They've basically taken care of themselves, and each other, in the way rich kids do, but Reed is the leader of the pack, which we discover from the beginning... He's the one who makes the Royal decrees and takes care of anyone who doesn't follow them in and out of the house. Not only that, but he clearly wants Ella...so what's the problem?? That's what I hope to find out in the next novel...

Also, Easton might be one of my favorites. He's so funny and protective... Love him!!

There's so much more to the story than what you get in the first novel. Hopefully we get more answers in Broken Prince...I'm dying to know!
