The Secret Lives of Royals

This should be a fun, light-hearted read. Sadly, I did not get a taste or experience this during my reading time. The reason is because I found the characters to be muted and the story as well. In fact, I didn't notice that Olivia had two love interest in the beginning. Both men did not stand out in my eyes. Thus you could say that I was not into the romance.

The mystery aspect of the secret society didn't peak my intrigue either. You can say that this whole book kind of missed the mark. This tr

This book has everything including the kitchen sink; but, not in a good way. There's a secret society that runs the world, a normal girl who finds out she's a 'princess', a love triangle, and OF COURSE a prophecy about the girl. All of the characters are flat and there's occasionally a very weak plot.

Olivia, the protagonist, is obnoxious and is willing to just go with the flow until events start to involve her best friend. Then she decides to run away from the world for weeks or months (the tim

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a review.

This book started out live The Devil Wears Prada,then The Royals then The Gossip Girl. So, if you are a fan of all these movies, you will like this book.

Olivia, a normal girl, works in Starbucks. She lives with her best friend and all is just normal until she receives a phone call for an interview with a famous magazine. Then she was told that she was from a line of royals.

I quite like the book but the characters especially Alex and Conn

From the title, I thought this would be an awesome royal romance. Sadly, The Secret Lives of Royals fell short for me. I don't know what I was expecting when I started reading it but it wasn't what I thought it would be. Our main character, Olivia, is pulled into this secret society called "The Circle". From the first time we meed the Circle, I was a bit freaked out by it. It's a group of highly respectable people or those with royal blood that basically oversee everything. I guess the idea of p ...more

I was thoroughly excited for this book. Once I got a little further into it the story seemed full of frivolous people just being rich and blowing off work. Olivia started out as a relatable character with ambition and drive, but once she is presented with an opportunity to be rich she pretends to be torn and then proceeds to binge watch at eat at home instead of work for weeks at a time. I was hopeful when the Royal society talked about influencing the world for the better to make it a better pl ...more

I received a copy from NetGalley for review.

Seemingly ordinary girl Olivia receives dream job, and everything is not what it appears to be.

Raised in anonymity from parents who tried to protect and shield her, to give her an opportunity at a normal life away from this organization. While the jet set life of the wealthy and celebrities comes with the trapping she's always imagine and dreamed

I received this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for my review.

This book was intensely readable and had an interesting premise that pulled me in from page one. I will say that the last twenty percent of the book felt rushed and a bit disjointed, but I'd love to read a sequel to the story.

I found the characters enjoyable, the plot entertaining, and think this would make a perfect summer pool or beach read, as well as a great TV show, on a network like FreeForm or The CW or Netfli
