Enjoyable, but predictable. I probably won't continue the series.

worst YA book I have ever read.

Th writing is so bad, but it’s low key Bingable. Sometimes cliche, hilarious, drama filled, and entertaining. At least the protagonist is somewhat clever.

Paper Princess is a rags to riches story of a young girl alone after her mother's death until a wealthy stranger takes her in as his own daughter. The problem is his sons don't want anything to do with her and are plotting to get her out of their home. This book is full of deceit and drama and it will definitely entertain.

Just another teenage romance, with the high ratings I was expecting something else

Where do I even begin??? This book was terrible to the greatest lengths. All the 5-star reviews make me question life and the people who wrote them. The book was overall weird and had odd romance. The book revolves around Ella, a teen who lost both her parents and lives alone. Now comes along Mr. Callum Royal, a rich man who claims to have known her father and now wants to be Ella's legal guardian. So Ella now goes with this random guy to live in his house with his 5 sons. While at the house, Callum explains to Ella that if she stays with them for the rest of high school, then he will give her $10,000 each month...WTF. Anyways, now Ella is at the house with the 5 sons who basically hate her more than anything. She goes to school and gets bullied. She goes home and gets bullied. She tries out for teams and gets bullied. She goes to parties and gets bullied. There is no end to this girl and she doesn't learn common sense either. Things get weird with her and her somewhat 'stepbrothers.' First she and Easton are kind of together and then they aren't. Then she and Reed are together...sort of on and off. I know that Ella and the five boys aren't blood-related, Callum basically adopted her, but it still doesn't make it any less weird. Maybe it's just me that doesn't like this book, but still, 0.5 stars. Next time I should probably read up more on books before wasting my time on them...

this is one of my favorite books ever.

I don't quite know how to feel about this. The writing and characters are all over the place in terms of behavior, and probably the worst part is how cruel they are. And that's why it's drawn comparisons to Cruel Intentions. Don't expect to feel good after reading this novel...
