Review: Paper Princess by Erin Watt -or- What Happens When Ami Hates a Book

Paper Princess (Royals Series #1)

From strip clubs and truck stops to southern coast mansions and prep schools, one girl tries to stay true to herself.
These Royals will ruin you…
Ella Harper is a survivor—a pragmatic optimist. She’s spent her whole life moving from town to town with her flighty mother, struggling to make ends meet and believing that someday she’ll climb out of the gutter. After her mother’s death, Ella is truly alone.
Until Callum Royal appears, plucking Ella out of poverty and tossing her into his posh mansion among his five sons who all hate her. Each Royal boy is more magnetic than the last, but none as captivating as Reed Royal, the boy who is determined to send her back to the slums she came from.
Reed doesn’t want her. He says she doesn’t belong with the Royals.
He might be right.
Wealth. Excess. Deception. It’s like nothing Ella has ever experienced, and if she’s going to survive her time in the Royal palace, she’ll need to learn to issue her own Royal decrees.

I can't believe I read the whole thing.

Things I Learned from This Book:

- The more badly a guy treats you, the more attractive that makes him.
- Men can not control their physical desires, and that is not their fault.
- Men also cannot help beating each other up when they are upset, and that just makes them more manly/attractive.
- The only real power a woman has is sex.
- Adults can never be trusted to help you. They will cover up crimes and blame the victim (goes without saying that your peers will do the same.)
- Adults are also ridiculously oblivious at all times.
- The more money and power someone has, the fewer morals they have. That's okay, because
- The more money and power someone has, the less the rules apply to them.
- Men who threaten to sexually assault you should be forgiven and trusted again quickly.

I'm sure there's more, but as you can see this is the PERFECT little book to hand teens if you are motivated to perpetuate rape culture and turn them into little sado/masochists! We'll ignore the whole badly written/ridiculously predictable hang-ups.

Enjoy! (or...not.)
