REVIEW: Riches to Rags by Casey L. Bond

Riches to Rags
Casey L. Bond

Most girls dream of being princesses, but one princess just wants to be a normal girl.

Ella Carina, crown princess of Aelawyn, knows brutality and lies—she’s seen the way her father rules. Princess. Possession. To her father, the words had the same meaning. She was only as valuable as the alliance formed with her betrothal. Her freedom comes from an unlikely place: an attack on the castle.

When the conquering King offers to protect her from the betrothal her father arranged for political gain, she consents. Hiding her within a peasant family is the only way to keep her and her secret safe. 

In this simpler life, Ella flourishes and catches the eye of the local Blacksmith’s son. For once, she can be herself and make her own choices, but the life of a princess—even one kept secret—was never meant to be easy. 

Trevor, crown prince of Galder has been searching for Ella, but not because of their betrothal. She is in grave danger from the very people who hid her away. His plan is to show her the truth and help her to safety. 

Nothing goes as planned. When Trevor finds her, it’s to discover she’s fallen in love with a peasant. Now he has two goals: help her regain her throne… and show her that she belongs with him.

Once upon a time, all was right in the world. All because one girl was brave enough to follow her heart, trading riches to rags. And because a charming young man ignored both to become Prince of her heart. 

And the two of them lived happily ever after. -Riches to Rags

I have no words as tears run down my face after reading this magical story.....

Two hours later....

This is for sure the best fairy-tale story I have EVER read this year and it's not your ordinary Cinderella story either. 

The characters were incredible. To read about Ella and Her struggles throughout this story made me hang on to every word until the very end. I was just hoping and praying that Ella would get her happily ever after.

The story-line was addicting!! It was so hard to put this book down. I felt as if I left the real world for a few hours just to dive right into this fictional world and I enjoyed every minute of it. I laughed, got angry and down right cried right along with Ella and her story. I applaud Bond for bringing this story to life and making it one of my top five favorites for 2018. There will always be a part of heart within the pages of this book and I know that I will want to come back to the phenomenal world to enjoy for years to come. I highly recommend this read!!
