Paper Princess by Erin Watt Review

  I picked up this book because I was in a romance book mood and this seemed like a fun storyline to begin with. Poor girl finds out that she is rich, starts living in a mansion with five hot boys, goes to a private school and falls in love and all that drama. When I just looked at the storyline, I didn't expect anything other than a fun little story but the reviews for this book were so good that my expectations were pretty high.

Unfortunately, those expectations were not met.

I get that this is a NA romance book and that there will be some graphic scenes in them but there is a difference between that and just plain trashy.

I rate this book a 2.5/5 stars. I personally didn't enjoy it as much as I thought I would. The storyline was so cliché and I pretty much didn't like any of the characters. But if you enjoyed it, great! I was unfortunately just not able to enjoy it as much.


Okay, so to be honest, there was no scene that I particularly enjoyed. The scenes that stuck with me the most were the ones that I really didn't like.

I get that the main character, Ella, was working at the club as a stripper to help her mom pay her medical bills but I hated how when Ella went to live with the Royals, everybody just started calling her "whore" or "slut." I mean, seriously. Her step brothers kept calling her that and I really didn't like it.

I really didn't like how the brothers kept asking Ella is she slept with their father so that she could live in their house. I felt like this world that Erin Watt has created was just full or rape, drugs and sex.

I also felt that Reed and Ella's relationship was very unnatural. I mean Reed is so hot and cold and one chapter he hates her and all of a sudden, he has feelings for her? Their relationship made me want to puke honestly. Reed mistreated her hundreds of times and each damn time Ella is like "OMG he turns me on" I MEAN COME ON GIRL? SERIOUSLY. GET YOUR HEAD TOGETHER.

I would have liked to see more of Ella's school life. How were Ella's classes? How did she go through them? The story told us that Ella and Easton had chemistry class together and there was absolutely no story behind that! Especially after all the characters made such a big deal about it!

Broke. Do I even have to talk about her? Just, ugh.

Everybody has said that the cliffhanger in this book is mind blowing. Well, not for me. Reed is seen sleeping with Brooke. For me, it was just like, Okay....? It did catch me off guard a bit, I'll admit that but am I interested enough to continue this story? No.

These were my thoughts on the book Paper Hearts. Absolutely no offense to those who enjoyed the book! I'm glad you enjoyed it. Everybody has different tastes right? Will I be continuing this series? Probably not though.

What are your thoughts on the book? Once again, Thank you guys for reading my review!

Happy Last day of Summer! Well, at least for me:)
