Review: Cracked Kingdom by Erin Watt

Cracked Kingdom (The Royals #5)
by Erin Watt

These Royals will ruin you.

Ever since Hartley Wright met Easton Royal, her life hasn’t been the same. There are enemies behind every corner and dangers beyond each door. When tragedy strikes and steals her memories, she can’t trust anyone, not even the blue-eyed boy who promises her that everything will be all right.

Because while Hartley’s memory is full of gaps, her instincts tell her Easton is dangerous. She doesn’t know if he’s the snake in the garden or her chance at salvation. The chaos he brings wherever he goes is too much to handle, the intense feelings he evokes are too confusing to unravel.

Easton wants her to remember. Hartley thinks it’s better to forget.

She might be right.

Tragedy. Treachery. Trust. Hartley has to face the facts—in this world, you can’t escape the Royals.

Either you live by their rules or you die by them.

The Royals are back, and the anticipation has never been this wild!

The story picks up from when Hartley, Easton, the twins Sebastian & Sawyer and their girlfriend, Lauren had been in an accident. Sebastian fell into a coma and Hartley lost almost all of her memories from three years prior. The twins blamed Hartley for the accident while Easton blamed himself. Now all he wanted was for Seb to wake up and Hartley to regain her memories.

But Hartley thought it was better if she could forget everything that had hurt her and everything that brought misery in her life.

If only all these were possible and easy.

My heart is swelling with pride and joy and so much love for Ella, Hartley and the Royals, and the women behind this masterpiece series, Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick, collectively known as Erin Watt. I’ve cried and laughed, guessed and screamed and spent endless sleepless nights with the Royals and I didn’t regret any of the eyebags and round circles that came with it. All of me refuse to acknowledge the fact that Cracked Kingdom is going to be the final and last book in the Royals series. I just can’t..

Easton Royal is definitely the man of the hour. Even from the first book, Paper Princess, I knew Easton would come a long way. I loved him for who he was and who he is when he’s with the ones he love. I’ve always secretly looked forward to more Easton scenes during Reed and Ella’s journey to forever . And now that his final book I’d here, I can’t help but feel sad and morose. Easton took a very big part of me ad Hartley Wright is sure darn lucky to have him. Easton is arguably the best of the Royal brothers, despite his unabashedly womanizing ways.

I won’t go into further details on how this story goes, but just so you know, it made me love the Royals even more, including the twins! Oh how I really wish they’d be able to have their own happily ever after too!!

Kudos, hugs and kisses to Erin Watt for an unforgettable story about love, family, commitment, and acceptance. If there’s one thing I learned in the whole Royal series, it’s that family doesn’t mean you need to be blood related. It’s the people in your life who want you in theirs; the ones who accept you for who you are. Blood isn’t always thicker than water, but being loyal is what makes you family.

This Royal family, however, has just ruined me.
