My Review: ⭐⭐⭐⭐
One thing is for certain, this author sure knows how to end the book on a high note.
Book two in the Royals series, this book picks up right where the last book left off. I found it to be a little bit repetitive in some aspects, such as the many times it reiterated why Ella shouldn’t believe Reed and his apologies because her mother always had such a bad habit of believing the dumb lies her loser boyfriends would give her all the time. It was drilled in so much that when Ella finally did relent to Reed’s apologies, it almost felt like a betrayal to herself and her mother’s memory, which I’m pretty sure was not supposed to be what I felt at that moment. It was bittersweet, indeed, because I did, in fact, want her to finally forgive him.
I also was a little bored by the lengthy party scenes. But what I was NOT bored with was Callum Royal finally arriving to the party in this book! I have to admit, I was totally digging on Daddy Royal in several scenes of this book, and let’s face it, he’s way more my age than these Reed Brothers anyway, so I’m totally ok with that. 😉
We got to see the protective side of Reed in this book, which was pretty sexy. And good for him because those kids at this uppity prep school are freaking horrible.
Lots to love about this book, and definitely will carry on to the next. Um, how can I not with the two bombs… yes, that’s right… TWO bombs dropped on us right at the end. Wowza!
