Review – Princess Ballot by: Jaymin Eve & Tate James

You have been chosen.

Those four words change Violet Spencer’s whole life, when against staggering odds, she’s selected in the “princess ballot.”

Arbon Academy is affectionately known as the school for Royals. Only the rich, powerful, or heir to a throne gain entry … except for the one scholarship student accepted every five years. It’s a worldwide lottery, and one that Violet entered without giving it any serious thought.

But the media got it wrong and Arbon Academy is much more than a simple college for future leaders.

It’s a dark world of politics, intrigue, and dangerous guys who will stop at nothing to get their own way. Despite her best efforts at remaining off the radar, Violet finds herself a pawn between two of the most powerful monarchies in the world.

Prince Rafe of the Switzerlands and Prince Alex of the Australasias are bitter enemies both on the soccer field and in the political arena. Monarchies rule the world now, and every waking breath is a competition for the princes.

Control the ball.
Control the world.
Control Violet.

Whether it’s through love or hate, someone will ultimately win.

*This is book one in a dark college romance. This is not a RH or traditional love triangle story, but it does include a-hole princes, nasty princesses, and one chick who will take none of their shit, all the while doing her best to make it out alive. HEA guaranteed. Eventually. 17+. #darkromance #collegeromance #sportsromance #royals

Holy wow! This book was like crack. Once I started, I devoured it and kept wanting more and more. I love the mystery of everything. Like Violet, you’re not quite sure who is telling the truth and who is really a friend or not. I loved trying to uncover all the secrets with Violet.

There is a whole slew of men in this book and they’re all equally delicious. The four main ones are Alex, Rafe, Nolan, and Jordan. Though not all of them are love interests (some are friends-ish) honestly at this point, Nolan is my favorite. I love his playfulness and the fact that he constantly acts like a “big brother”. Obviously they’re all hot hunks that you want to like for different reasons.

Our MC, Violet is one heck of a gal. She is so fierce, strong, and takes no crap which I adore. She makes some very smart moves throughout this book and I love when an MC is intelligent in her decision making. I cannot wait to see where her story goes in book 2.

With Violet and all our main characters, I’ll be very curious to see who she stays connected with and who we may find on the betrayal side. That includes our love interests as well.

There’s also fantastic world-building. I really enjoyed how the authors re-structured the world and the rules. There’s also a huge element of mystery and thrill throughout the book which makes it even more enjoyable. Absolutely loved and cannot wait to keep reading more in the series!
