The Secret Lives of Royals Reviews
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
IN SUMMARY: If you've watched a single chick flick movie, you've already read this book. THE SECRET LIVES OF ROYALS brings nothing new to the table, with a plot so dull, a heroine so generic, and cast so forgettable that finally finishing the read was a moment of pure relief.

While the jet set life of the wealthy and celebrities comes with the trapping she's always imagine and dreamed ...more
I received this book for free. I entered a contest on Goodreads, but there was no letter attached or a request to give a review. I believe the return address said NetGalley, but couldn't be sure of that.
Anyway, I thought I would write a review since I did receive the book for free. Thank you by the way to whoever sent it!
I really liked the beginning of the story. Olivia starts a new job and it has a "Devil Wears Prada" feel to the story, but then it gets kinda weird with the society and this w ...more
