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.
Fallen Heir ended on such an intense note I have no idea how to even start this. I’m reeling over those final few pages and am finding myself unable to put my thoughts into coherent thoughts. It just… Wow… So good. I can not wait for the next book in Easton’s story, Cracked Kingdom.
Easton was quite the character in the first three books of the series. I knew his crazy, over-the-top persona was a mask for pain he didn’t want anyone else to suspect. Erin Watt did an excellent job of conveying just how unsure of himself Easton was throughout the book. There were times when his self-doubt manifested in such a powerful way it made me hurt for him. He’d seemed so sure of himself when we saw him through other people’s other eyes, it was almost shocking to see how differently he felt about himself.
Hartley was a perfect counterpoint to Easton. While she had more than her share of horrible things to deal with I never had any doubt that she knew exactly who she was and what she needed out of life. She was, at the very heart of her, a very heartbroken girl. I would have loved to have had her POV in this book, as I think it would have given some excellent insight as to her exact motivations, and I hope to see some of her voice in the next book.
I loved Fallen Heir, especially getting a new perspective on all the characters we had already got to know. It was very well paced and kept me flipping through pages in hopes of finding out a little more about Hartley and Easton. They were both so interesting and dynamic, between unveiling their layers and seeing their back and forth I was wholly engrossed in their story.
Erin Watt delivered again in Fallen Heir. Going back into the world of the Royals was amazing; I had missed those boys and Ella. This series is where Erin Watt shines, I had been let-down with their last release, When It’s Real, so it was nice to see that magic was back in Fallen Heir. There is just something uniquely interesting about this world they have created and the way they write about the Royals that keeps me engrossed in these books.
Erin Watt is the brainchild of two bestselling authors linked together through their love of great books and an addiction to writing. They share one creative imagination. Their greatest love (after their families and pets, of course)? Coming up with fun–and sometimes crazy–ideas. Their greatest fear? Breaking up.
