Royal Bond (Royal, # 1) by Megan Maldonado

Royal BondSynopsis:
They are forever…
Sydney Field’s life is a rollercoaster on steroids with one constant—Ryan Edwardson.
Best friends since a projectile crayon incident in kindergarten, Sydney and Ryan have stuck it out together through thick and thin, pranks and rants, and anything in between.
One kiss changes everything…
As Sydney does her best to sort through her new found feelings for Ryan and mend what she broke in their friendship, the rollercoaster makes a complete one-eighty, unveiling Ryan’s lifelong secrets.
Thrust into a world chalk full of royalty and kingdoms and wielders, Sydney starts to wonder what’s up or down, right or wrong, reality or fantasy.
In a twist of events, Sydney finds herself enveloped in a world she never knew she belonged to. Friends become enemies, strangers become her survival, and love becomes the ultimate price.

My thoughts:
This was a book I have trouble reviewing. I loved the book, the overall story, the story and history behind Sydney and Ryan, her background story and family, her friends, I pretty much liked it all.
The only thing I really didn’t care for in the beginning was Sydney. She seemed a little much in the beginning. To annoying, almost like a teenager and her humor sometimes seemed a bit forced.
BUT , it got better, she seemed less annoying the more you get into the book, by the time I was about a quarter in the book I really didn’t mind Sydney.
I liked Ryan, well most of the time, he had his moments where he needed to be smacked but overall I really enjoyed him. If a little overbearing but still very likable and of course he looks hot.
I also enjoyed her friends, it seemed like the balanced her out nicely.
At first it seemed more like a contemporary romance and I was wondering how and what the paranormal part would come in, once it did it was really good. I did enjoy the part of the different kind of kingdoms of elemental magic, of course Sydney is right in the middle of it. Some for things come to light for her, that will change her life forever.
It all had some pretty good twists and turns in it and some pretty good suspense.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book, it had a little of everything in it, humor, suspense, action, and romance. The ending ….. wow …… I saw a few things happening but not this. It does end on a pretty good cliffhanger.
I rate it at 3 ½ ★ and I’m really curious to see how it ends.
