she was until one of the Royals, Adam “Beast” Castle, decided she was hot
enough to ignore the hierarchy at our school—a hierarchy I myself set in place.
I run this school, and the Upper East Side, too. Here at H.E.A., we stick to a
strict social status, something most of Manhattan does, too. So when Beast
starts dating Belle? All hell breaks loose.
You know nothing. Nobody here at H.E.A. plays by the rules, or follows the
books. The only one who knows anything around here is me…
What do you get when you take fairy tale characters and mash them up with Gossip Girl? You get Belle, that’s what!
I have to tell you, when I was first approached to read this, I was a bit hesitant. I wasn’t sure how this was going to go with beloved characters from fairy tales thrust into the snarky Gossip Girl-like world, but let me tell you, it was excellent!
So, our Gossip Girl here is no secret. She is Elsa, Queen of H.E.A., and she sends out daily blasts on the goings-on at the school. She is nicknamed the Ice Queen, but this is not her story. This is Belle’s story and she doesn’t end up with who you think.
I loved this. I honestly did. These two authors have quite the collaboration here. They wrote the characters you love (Snow White, Elsa, Cinderella, Belle, etc.) with enough similarities to the fairy tale stories they are derived from, but added a little twist to each of them, effectively making these characters a bit more interesting. Don’t let the fact that this is a YA novel fool you. There is enough snark, bite and steamy goodness to keep this interesting for readers of all ages. Okay, maybe not younger ones, but you get what I mean. Add in a poor little rich boy/girl plot, bullying, caste systems and betrayal and you get an entertaining book that will leave you wanting more from the H.E.A. world.
Do yourself a favor and grab this one. Join in on all the H.E.A. goodness!
There was something almost animalistic in the way he reared his arm back,
calculated the risks, and some how managed to fire off a perfect shot toward
the receiver—more often than not, Prescott—every single time. Every time his
passes were caught, I waited for him to show some sign of his usual cockiness
or even excitement, but he just nodded, slapped his hands together, and did it
again. He was so grave, so focused, and it was clear he took his duties as
quarterback very seriously.

as the defensive lineup trailed onto the field to see it. That’s how the whole
game had gone.

team going home crying, and the crowd went wild when Ella was flipped in the
air and caught by Elsa, Anna, and Tianna. Prescott grinned from the bench and
blew a kiss at Ella, who beamed, her cheeks red.
Prescott no longer seemed like he was in a prison sentence without parole, and
even Ella had been smiling and joking with her friends while the boys played.
almost like he was annoyed at something, but then he shrugged and turned back
to me. When he saw me watching, he grinned, lifted a hand, and waved. Smiling,
I immediately waved back. He pressed his hand to his heart, then slammed his
helmet back over his head.
authors who you’ve probably already read and loved. One day, we were talking,
and we decided to write a series together, and the Tangled Royals series was
house, and we wrote a lot of books individually, but we’re not about to tell
you how many.
That’s a secret we’ll never tell.
