Fallen Heir. Erin Watt. Romance/Young adult/Contemporary. 2018. 300 pages. 2 stars.
I’m Easton Royal, superficial and only interested in how to have a good time.
I don’t want to look deep into my being and see the bottomless, black, boring pool of nothingness. I want to live in blissful denial.
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.
Funny how the quiet can be deafening. What’d she say before? In the quiet, you can hear the heart beat? You can also hear it break.
Easton, Easton, Easton. Why the hell are you settling for Hartley Wright she’s not even that interesting. She is an annoying side character who clearly does not appreciate your efforts. Stay away from her. Find someone better. Find someone who cherishes your witty personality and kind generosity. Let Hartley Wright go because YOU DESERVE BETTER.
Man, I hate Hartley Wright. For one, she reeks of fake authenticity. I understand having to struggle on your own and not wanting any pity, but damn she can be a real bitch about it sometimes. She is one of the most unlikeable character I’ve come across in books so far. And to think that she’s the love interest of this book is impeding my enjoyment of the book because I’m annoyed the entire time I’m reading. Unlike Easton, I’m not interested in Hartley.
I was never really the biggest fan of this series. I’ve mentioned time and again in my reviews of the previous books that I felt like I was reading this against my will because I’m drawn to drama and love to be in the know. However, I do not want to know anything remotely related to annoying Hartley Wright.
I guess it’s been a long time coming for me to ditch this series because I’ve outgrown these characters and no longer have patience for them.
Goodbye, Royals. I’m not gonna miss you.
