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.
Twisted Palace is the best book in The Royals series so far. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not good, just better than the two star nonsense that came before it. It almost justifies my insane decision to keep reading. While Twisted Palace is still super predictable, there is at least some real conflict with actual consequences, making this incredibly insane plot the most believable so far.
Thankfully Val and Ella were better friends to each other this time around. So while I still didn’t like them as people, their friendship made a little more sense.
Ella and Reed are perfect for each other because they have to be the two most obnoxious characters I’ve ever read. Or am I just jinxing myself if I decide to keep reading? Could anyone be worse?
When are we going to open the story up to some new POVs? I’m so over Ella and Reed and Twisted Palacehas to wrap up their horrific love story. I can’t handle another dumb twist to ‘keep them apart’ that succeeds only in dumb inner monologues that defy logic and sense. Easton is so clearly messed up that I’m sure his POV would at least be something different. I’m not keen for a Gideon story, though – for a college boy, he seems dumb as. There were so many steps he could have taken before
the blackmail plot was so stupid. I don’t need any more of that in my life. The twins would be interesting perspectives, though – their love life is as messed up as Easton’s addiction problems. Even Callum would be more interesting than Ella and Reed at this point, although my theory is that Gideon did not fall far from the dumb tree. For someone running a multimillion-dollar company, Callum is an idiot.
While Twisted Palace was better than previous books in this series, I still wouldn’t consider it a good book. However, what it has done is allowed me to justify continuing to read this trash series. So… thanks?
