Synopsis:
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.

Review:
In the second book, we follow the aftermath of what happened in the first book. Ella ran away because she found Reed with his father's ex-girlfriend, Brooke naked in his room. Furious by this discovery where her boyfriend that she thought loved her ended up betraying her, she took off to be away from the Royals. What Ella doesn't know is that Reed was actually set up by Brooke who claims to be pregnant and it is a Royal baby but the catch is that it could be his father's baby or his because it turns out that Reed has hooked up with Brooke before in the past. Brooke who was excluded from the Royals in the first book made a deal with Reed to put in a good word for her to his father so that his father will want Brooke back in return she won't say a word about their past liaisons to Ella or his father.

In this sequel things in the family and at school is going to shit. The Royals have lost the grip that they at school and now another person is ruling the school. Almost every students now are brave enough to face the Royals and there's also a rumor going on in school about Ella getting shagged by all of the Royal boys. In the family, because Ella left and everyone blame Reed they all kind of start going on a downward spiral especially Easton. When Callum found out that Ella ran away he sent his PI to go find her and take her back to the mansion.

When Ella's retrieved back to the mansion. Reed fights to earn back Ella's trust and hopes to strengthen their relationship because he actually loves Ella. This second book focuses on rebuilding Ella and Reed's relationship, taking back the seat of power at school and protecting the family from people with devious agendas.
She’s mine and always has been. From before we even met, she was mine and I was hers. I fought it too long, but I’m giving in now. I’m all in now.
This book is totally like crack, it is very addicting and once you've started it you can't stop until you finish it. That's what I feel reading this series, reading about the life of Ella Harper and the Royal boys is better than any reality shows on TV. In this book we get something different because the writing is changed to accommodate two POVs. Yes, in this book we get Reed's perspective and Ella's perspective. Writing wise, the author did a great job because I can differentiate between the POVs and not get confused about which was which when I was reading. I also really liked that the author decided to do a dual perspective story because the reader now can see Reed's feelings as well and know that they both really do have this fiery desire of one another.
“I’m done playing games, Ella. No other girls exist in the world for me. If you see me talking to one, know that I’m talking about you. If you see me walking next to someone, I’m wishing it was you … You’re the only one for me.”
“I missed you every second you were gone. I thought about you every goddamn second. You want to hate me for what I did? Don’t bother – I was hating myself for it long before you showed up.”
Talking about characters here I liked Easton, Reed and Ella even more than before. As if it was possible. Easton is just the picture of a brother you can depend on, I really want to have a brother like him, even though he screwed up sometimes and tend to do self-destructing things. Reed and Ella's feelings and chemistry is just too much. They're only teenagers and they have so much passion toward each other and they have steamy intercourse like adults do (well Reed does claim to be great in bed). I hated Brooke and Dinah obviously, but more Brooke than Dinah because she's just a fake bitch, the gold digger type of girl who is only after the money. I also don't really like the bitch queen from the school, I kind of forgot her name. She was annoying AF and also her bitchiness was just downright juvenile. Kind of expected though since this is a YA book.

Favorite scenes? I got loads. Where Ella took care of the HBIC (head bitch in charge) at the school and any brother-sister interaction between Ella and Easton to name a few. Oh yeah, don't talk to me about ending! Just like the first book, the ending was unexpected, all of a sudden and a very very very annoying cliffhanger. The author really knows how to make readers wait for the next installment. Recommended for anyone who reads romance just give it a try because it is very addicting.

That's all for now!
