Just Ella by Annette K. Larsen Blog tour
A Proper Romance
Ariella was only looking for a distraction, something to break up the monotony of palace life. What she found was a young man willing to overlook her title and show her a new and vibrant way of life. But when her growing feelings for Gavin spiral out of control and clash with the expectations of her station, she will discover that the consequences of her curiosity are far more severe than she’d imagined.
I watched in helpless horror as two guards hauled Gavin to his feet and dragged him from the room. My voice was frozen, unable to protest as another guard took hold of my arm, leading me upstairs. From the confines of my room, I stared into the darkness beyond my window, hoping to catch one more glimpse of Gavin. He was gone, and I wondered if he would have been better off if he had never met me.
My Review: Just Ella
Just Ella is a little bit different fairy tale. She is a princess and a strong character. Their are a lot of good characters. It is a book that you won't want to put down. It is also one that the whole family can enjoy.
Ella is a Princess. she has six sisters. One of whom will be future Queen. Ella is smart, loves children and to explore in the library or outside in the maze. Her life gets more open wide when she meets gardener Gavin who takes care of the maze.
Gavin's family have taken care of the maze for generations. He does not recognizes Ella as one of the princess at first. He knows his station in life and has a hard time treating her like everyone else. Slowly they build a friendship and Gavin tells her about life in the village.
Their is plenty of drama, action, fun and humor as you watch Ella grow up and find what she wants in life. This is not a instant romance with a dance leading to love. Of course their is a ball or two. Their is also dances in the village that Ella sneaks off too. It covers a few years. You get to see some Princes too some are nice and others are spoiled. Ella and Gavin have real issues to workout as they fall in love.
I was given this book and asked to give honest review and be part of its book tour.
