These Royals Will Ruin You!
Twisted Palace (The Royals Book 3)
by Erin Watt
Release Date: October 17, 2016
Erin Watt delivers a completely fantastic conclusion to the series readers have become enamored with. These authors will have the reader sitting on the edge of his/her seat in suspense, on the verge of tears with heartache, and smiling with the final pages of this book. It is truly an epic and exciting ride!
What can one say about the Royal family? They are screwed up! They lie, they are lacking some basic morals that others may have, and they have a penchant for breaking the rules, but does that stop the reader from loving this family, any of them? No. This is largely due to the way in which Erin Watt showcases the family. Their actions are always in support or protection of their family and the people they love, and who can fault them for that? Additionally, the trauma these boys have been through as it is explained by the authors develops their motivation as characters, so instead of seeing stuck-up rich boys, the author showcases the Royal boys as being victims of their own self-hatred and anger towards their father, thus creating sympathy in the reader and making him/her fall in love with them. We want them to heal, find self-worth, and find someone to love them. We want them to take back their “kingdom” with their prince and princess at the helm, and Twisted Palace delivers on all fronts.
Reed is just as amazing in this book as he is in all of the others, but this book made my heart ache for him. I want to yell at him, tell him no way, absolutely not, basically I become Ella. I understood his choices and motivation to do what he planned, but it didn’t mean I was happy about it. I think what I love most though is his decision to stay and fight, thus restoring every single honorable attribute I love about Reed Royal.
Ella continues to be the heroine the reader loves. She is strong, fierce, protective, and loyal. Her ability to stick up for others, love Reed in an unconditional way, heal the Royal brothers with her kindness and compassion makes her one of my favorite heroines ever! The journey she went on throughout this series, watching her become one of the Royals is amazing!
I also love the secondary characters as much as the main characters. Wade, Val, and even Jordan all were integral to the development of the story and the characters, and watching these characters change and evolve as well is just as fun.
There is an interesting issue that will occur while reading Twisted Palace. The plot developments will make the reader want to race to the end, but with each passing page, he/she will want to slow down. The reader doesn’t want to know how it is going to end because it will be over, and he/she will have to walk away from this family that he/she has come to love. It is amazing and sad all at the same time. Even with dealing with the need to finish and not wanting to, the reader will be sucked into this plot. The emotional impact of the characters, the surprises, the resolution will have you in a complete state of bliss.
Erin Watt has hit royal status with this series, and Twisted Palace is the final jewel in their tiara. This series will go down as one of my favorites, an absolute must-read series I would recommend to anyone. So now that it is over, all I can hope for is that there will be more, maybe not to Ella and Reed’s story, but more of the Royals because I’m not sure I’m ready to let them go!

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.
