Fallen Heir by Erin Watt ~ Sarah A’s Review

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.

Release Blitz ~ Twisted Palace by Erin Watt ~ Sarah A’s Review

twisted-palaceThese Royals will ruin you…

From mortal enemies to unexpected allies, two teenagers try to protect everything that matters most.

Ella Harper has met every challenge that life has thrown her way. She’s tough, resilient, and willing to do whatever it takes to defend the people she loves, but the challenge of a long-lost father and a boyfriend whose life is on the line might be too much for even Ella to overcome.

Reed Royal has a quick temper and even faster fists. But his tendency to meet every obstacle with violence has finally caught up with him. If he wants to save himself and the girl he loves, he’ll need to rise above his tortured past and tarnished reputation.

No one believes Ella can survive the Royals. Everyone is sure Reed will destroy them all.
They may be right.

With everything and everyone conspiring to keep them apart, Ella and Reed must find a way to beat the law, save their families, and unravel all the secrets in their Twisted Palace.

***CONTAINS SPOILERS FOR BOOKS 1 & 2, Paper Princess and Broken Prince***

I was so ecstatic to read Twisted Palace, after the cliffhanger I was left with in Broken Prince I was dying for answers.  DYING!!  My heart might have skipped a beat when it showed up on my kindle.  Let me tell you, the book lived up to my expectations and then some.

Broken Prince left off with some absolutely insane revelations, Brooke had been murdered, Reed was the prime suspect, and Steve had apparently come back from the dead.  I was completely reeling with that ending.  It took me days to come to terms with the lack of closure I had.  I had so many theories, so many ways the story could pan out, for months it seemed like I was taking part in a choose-your-own-adventure book trying to guess how Ella and Reed’s story would end.

Some of the revelations in this book absolutely floored me.  Even in my craziest theories I never came close to how the events in this book played out.  There were some things that I had guessed correctly, but the way they played out were so far removed from what I thought, I can’t even give myself credit for those.  I am wholly impressed by how well Erin Watt kept everyone on their toes with the conclusion of this book.

Twisted Palace was a fast, intense read.  I was so invested in what was going to happen next I was hardly able to notice the passage of time as I read.  I was carefully dissecting each tiny piece of information in order to help me deduce what had happened during the fateful night Brooke had died.  There was also all of the insanity that was released in the reappearance of Steve and how he was trying to cultivate a relationship with Ella; it was all very strange and uncomfortable, yet oddly compelling.

Erin Watt really knocked it out of the park with this series.  There was enough intrigue to drive the story forward, enough romance to warm my icy heart, enough pain to keep me emotionally invested in every character in the book (even the ones that I hated).  Twisted Palace ended in such a way I was completely satisfied with the conclusion of Ella and Reed’s story, but it left me wanting to know more about Easton, about the twins, about Gideon.  The world created in the Royals series is one I would happily revisit, hopefully in order to get the brothers’ stories.

For all the delicious wickedness, intensity and excitement that Paper Princess delivered, Broken Prince raised the bar to a whole new level. Betrayal and deceit continue to run rampant creating plenty of page turning drama to keep you hanging on every word.

The character development continued to blow my mind as new secrets and old wounds surfaced. The anticipation of not knowing what was coming next made for quite the angst filled read. There are characters I love, some I love even more, and a handful I hate with a passion.

Props to Ella on finally finding her backbone. Given her history of running from her problems, it was nice to see her stand up for herself. I knew she had it in her to kick some ass and I am excited for what is yet to come for her. She deserves to find peace and true happiness with all that she has endured in her young life.

I was angry with Reed going into the story after that jaw dropping ending in Paper Princess. No spoilers here but wait till you read what really went down!!! Beneath Reed’s tough exterior is a boy with a big heart and I was pleased to see more of the vulnerability he’s determined to hide.

I thoroughly enjoyed seeing more from Gideon, Easton and the twins. They continue to intrigue me and I know there is so much more those Royals than meets the eye. While I have no idea what will happen in Twisted Palace, I assure you it won’t be enough to satisfy my curiosity about the Royal family.

I am not quite sure what to do with myself now. I am a bundle of nervous energy after that ending…WHOA! Watt has some big shoes to fill after this installment of the series and I can’t wait for the next book. I am definitely going to need a series re-read to give me my Royal fix in the meantime. I am proud to admit I have been Ruined!!!

Broken Prince is book two of a three book series by author Erin Watt, the brain child of authors Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick.

Overall Rating: 5+ Stars

Paper Princess is a captivating tale of family ties, friendship and the mysterious space between set in the twisted and salacious kingdom of Royals.  This book consumed me and I was completely enthralled with these characters. The story was gloriously intense, full of mind boggling twists, drama to boot, EPIC revenge and a jaw dropping ending that is sure to leave you begging for more.

I went into this book because of the promise of some good YA drama. Rest assured, this story delivered that and then some. There were characters I loved and characters I loved to hate. There was plenty of head shaking and outbursts from me while reading and I enjoyed every wicked minute.

There is so much we have yet to learn about the Royals and I for one can’t wait for the next installment. I loved the ending – LOVED IT!! I don’t generally mind cliffhangers if it makes sense to the story. This one was HELLA good and I am most certainly counting down the days until book two, Broken Prince, which is due to release July 25. Paper Princess is book one of a three book series by debut author Erin Watt, the brain child of authors Elle Kennedy and Jen Frederick.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Stars
