(The Royals #4)
by Erin Watt
These Royals will ruin you.
Easton Royal has it all: looks, money, intelligence. His goal in life is to have as much fun as possible. He never thinks about the consequences because he doesn’t have to.
Until Hartley Wright appears, shaking up his easy life. She’s the one girl who’s said no, despite being attracted to him. Easton can’t figure her out and that makes her all the more irresistible.
Hartley doesn’t want him. She says he needs to grow up.
She might be right.
Rivals. Rules. Regrets. For the first time in Easton’s life, wearing a Royal crown isn’t enough. He’s about to learn that the higher you start, the harder you fall.
I can’t remember who recommended Paper Princess to me a year ago. Honestly, I thought it was just one of those YA reads that I would soon forget when I get to finish it. But when I finally met the Royals and Ella Harper, I was surprisingly drawn to them and never wanted to let go. For the next two sequels, I became engrossed in their world, entangled in the controversies and scandals of the Royal family and became involved with the students of Astor Park.
I devoured each and every page of Paper Princess, Broken Prince and Twisted Palace. And now, it’s Easton Royal’s turn in the Fallen Heir. And boy, what a rollercoaster ride this had been.
The day I got the ARC for Fallen Heir, it was 5:30 am and I literally fell from my bed when I saw it on my Kindle. I couldn’t stop myself from reading it even though I’ve got tons of paper work and deadlines to attack. When a Royal fell into my lap, I made sure he becomes a priority. And so Easton did.
I finally got inside Easton’s head, the seemingly happy-go-lucky son of Callum Royal, the easy-going brother of Reed and Ella’s super adorable male bestfriend. He had ladies waiting at his beck and call, even teachers couldn’t resist him. But there was one girl who didn’t bat her eyelashes at him. She intrigued him. She wasn’t as gorgeous as his sister Ella, but she definitely got something going on with her. Her name is Hartley Wright, mysterious, studios, upright and uptight; and she might just be the right one Easton had been looking for.
Or so he thought.
The wonder twins were also back, Lauren milking them or getting her fill with the twin Royals. I really hate Lauren here, I wanna throw her outside the mansion. And Felicity Worthington (gosh, I remember her name is similar to Libba Bray’s Gemma Doyle series) I really really hate that girl. She’s nothing but a tyrant wanting power above all else. And yes, I don’t like my namesake, Claire, too. Ugh.. This girls were even more annoying than Steve and Dinah combined in book 3!
But overall, let me say that This. Is. The Bomb!
I don’t know how to vocalize or express how I feel about this book. It feels like I’m at a losing end of my insanity. But it was really fun reading Easton’s POV, I got to know him better and deeper everytime he opened his mouth. Sure, he was kind of obnoxious and conceited and egotistical, but deep within him was a heart that knew how to care and love.
That ending though! Super unexpected. My mouth was literally hanging open when that explosive cliffhanger careened towards me and crashed!! Nooooooo!!!!!
As much as I want to scream and comfort Easton Royal, I can’t. My emotions are all out of place. I think I’m gonna cry. Erin Watt, why do you do this to me, to us? To Easton? WHY!!! Can’t wait for 2018! I need the freaking next book now!
