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.
First of all this book is the 4th in the series but the first 3 were on Reed and Ella, this one is on Easton and Hartley, it will be followed by another tome on these two characters and with the cliffangher that is gived to us, I expect everything.
Easton is my favorite Royal, he’s the one that is most broken, they all have problems but Easton is worse than the others. We see it in Fallen Heir, he has always had problems with alcohol and fighting and it will not change as easily. I have attached myself to him, I want him to go ahead and realize that he cannot be responsible for everyone’s problems but he must also grow. When he wants something, he does everything to get it and doesn’t care about the consequences; unfortunately he draws with him people who would rather be left alone.
Hartley is new and different; she just wants us to leave her alone. Unfortunately for her, Easton Royal wants to be her friend and will do anything to become it, whether she likes it or not. I like Hartley, she isn’t a fragile little girl, she just wants everything to go well in her life. I was a little disappointed by her reactions from time to time but I understand it anyway, it’s hard to stand up to Easton especially when you feel he is not happy.
Easton is no different in this book, he has the same defects and the same qualities, the only worry is what he will do with his life. I liked this story even though I would have liked to have a few more passages where he talks about the moments with his mother because she had an important place in her life.
We also find Ella, Sawyer, Seb, Lauren and Val and we discover new and less new heads like Felicity, Claire, Pash or Bran. I admit that the cruelty of the rich girls in this series is still huge, they don’t care to destroy lives as long as they find themselves at the top of the ladder thanks to it. This world is pitiless and where I loved Ella in the first three books is that she never let go and took revenge. Hartley doesn’t have the same character and this is going to be a lot more complicated for her.
The relationship between Ella and Easton has always been important, we feel a bit of resentment at Easton but for my part, I find that they behave like brother and sister.
The end is horrible, this cliffhanger is just HUGE and I’m going to have a crazy ache to wait for January for the rest. I always wondered how the authors could be sadistic at this point, and also how I could love that.
In short, if you liked Easton in Paper Princess, you’ll love it too in Fallen Heir and sometimes you’ll want to hit him but it’s natural.
Quick Word: Discover Easton Royal in all its splendor and its stupidity.
