BOOK REVIEW — Fallen Heir (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

Rating & Review


One would think that given the duo's knack for jaw dropping cliffhangers, I would have gotten used to them.... Yeeaah, apparently not!

description You’re not capable of fixing things. All you do is break them.”

Reckless. Impulsive. Tragic. Imperfect. Easton Royal's devil could care less attitude is a sure shot way to keep everyone around him, even his family, from discovering the little boy that lives inside of him that yearns to belong somewhere, but it is the same attitude that has put him harms way on more than one occasion.

Erin Watt delves into Easton's psyche and reveals the multiple facets to his personality that has been so well hidden from the readers in the previous three books. He is such a complex character and there are so many things that he keeps buried inside of him waiting for the right person to come along and see it all. His feeling about being the middle child, not fitting in with his family, being left out and seen just as a party animal.

I never thought I would say this but in this book Easton infuriated me a lot! Now, my heart did break for him and for what he felt but in those times he took decisions without thinking of the consequences, which is the Royals motto of life, but he not only ended up hurting himself but others around him as well. There were so many times I just wanted to jump in the book and take him by the collar and shake him good and tell him to not do stupid things.
Plus with the Middle Child Syndrome, "my elder brothers did this so I can get away with this" attitude I swear at one point I wanted to slap him real hard. Simply because what his brothers did is definitely not going to benefit him and I think he learned that lesson a little too late.

description I’m dizzy and breathless and full of strange emotions that I can’t make sense of and don’t want to. I know the gist. I’m happy. This is a high I’ve never been able to achieve through pills or booze or other people.

Hartly Wright. She was in more ways than one a fantastic partner for Easton. Opposite to him every way imaginable, Hartly is the first woman after Ella who managed to keep this damaged Royal on his toes. The lack of fawning, not giving a care about him or his reputation and social status, Hartly Wright reminded me a lot of Ella. She's got spunk, isn't afraid to speak her mind or put a Royal in his place. She is a high that Easton Royal can't get enough off and doesn't want to stop getting enough off. She is the one that calms him down but charges him up at the same time. She is the reason he wants to become better but she is also the reason he does mess up in order to right them for her.

description You’re not the white knight in this picture. You’re the villain!”
“What? Me?”
“Yes, you.”

There is SO much that is happening in Fallen Heir and if you so much as get distracted for a minute to might lose out on vital information. Like the rest of the books in this series, this is too addictive, twisted and like watching a train wreck waiting to happen and you just don't want that to stop. You want the happy-ever-after but more than that you want the devastation that the Royals leave behind them.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Fallen Heir is just the beginning of another Royal train wreck and secrets that were so well hidden because what is going to follow next is going to leave you reeling and wanting. You haven't seen anything. Yet.
