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.

Q&A Review by Angie & Liezel

What did you like about this book?

Angie: Everything! Well except Dinah for a little bit but I ended up liking her a little bit too. Ugh, Erin Watt what are you doing to me???? Twisted Palace was amazing and I don’t think I can say one negative thing about it.

Liezel: I too loved everything about the series. It had the perfect balance of angst, romance, passion and even suspense. Erin Watt will definitely have you surprised until the very end.

What did you dislike about it?

Angie: Steve.. that is all

Liezel: Honestly, I hate that it ended. I’ve become so addicted to the Royals. I don’t know about you but I felt like there was so much more to tell. I hope that this isn’t the last we hear from them.

What are your thoughts about Reed and Sydney?

Angie: That if this was my 17 yr old daughter I would put a chastity belt on her and lock her in the basement until she’s 60. Other than that I love them. They have what it takes to make it last past teenage “love”. Their chemistry is off the charts and I’m glad Sydney made smart choices about certain things.

Liezel: At first, it was difficult to picture these two together considering Sydney’s background. But this was another thing that I loved about the series… How the authors proved me wrong.

Do you see them together 5 years from now?

Angie: Yes I do and here’s why. Sydney is more mature than your typical 17 yr old girl. She’s raised herself for awhile now and sadly that’s made her grow up a lot quicker than others. She’s what Reed needs. With everything that happens to him in this book, it’s an eye opener and I see Reed evolving into a nice, hot young man.

Liezel: I completely agree with everything Angie just said. Not only that… Sydney and Reed’s relationship has been tried and tested in this book. When things got tough, they stuck it out – together. This proves that they definitely have it to last the test of time.

What was your favorite quote?

Angie: Ella Harper is all I’m ever going to see, because she’s my future. She’s my steel and my fire and my salvation. She’s everything.

Liezel: There are a few but I would have to agree with Angie…loved this!

I used to be scared of the future. I didn’t know where I’d end up, didn’t know if the anger and bitterness inside me would ever truly go away, if I could ever feel worthy or find someone who’d be able to see through the asshole I pretend to be to the rest of the world. But I’m not scared anymore, and I did find someone who sees me. Who really, truly sees me. And I see her, too. Ella Harper is all I’m ever going to see, because she’s my future. She’s my steel and my fire and my salvation. She’s everything.

Would you recommend this book?

Angie: Yes with the understanding that you must read Paper Princess and Broken Prince before reading Twisted Palace. These Royals will destroy you and you’ll love every single minute of it!

Liezel: Absolutely! Every single book in the series was phenomenal. I deem this series one of my fav NA series to date. Read it and fall utterly in love with the Royals.
