    Royal treatment here come prepare to be blown away

    Seriously I don’t have words, this was so good. I didn’t love the first three books o I was a bit reluctant with this one. But o far this is my favorite in the series and it was a phenomenal read. From the very first moment, Eaton was my fave Royal brother so I was really excited for his story. In the other books we mostly see his mischievous, flamboyant and no care in the world personality but we still know that he has a darker, more troublesome side too. In this story we get to experience life through his eyes and its really lonely and heartbreaking behind the mask he created for himself. It turns out his mother death scarred him even deeper than it would be obvious. I really felt for him and the heart wrenching emotional turmoil constantly experiences comes through spectacularly. My biggest problem with the other books in the series was that the drama was to over the top and somewhat juvenile so I was happy whit Fallen heir because in this the conflict and drama feels more genuine. Oh, there are still plenty of immature decisions in it but not more than expected from a great YA book. So I think the writing style besides being easy to read and flowing still developed a lot since Paper princess. I enjoyed the plot too quite a bit. How it centered around Easton’s transformation, inner struggles and efforts to change. This is a pretty emotional and well structured storyline with enough humor to the drama so its not depressing or overwhelming. I especially loved the banter between Hartley and Easton. I was happy when I found out that the authors created a new character for Easton romantic interest and I think Hartley is the perfect person to balance out his crazy and outgoing personality. But at times I felt a bit irritated because of her closed off reactions even when Easton was trying to open up to her. She wasn’t the only one who was mean to him. His family also kind of alienated him and wasn’t even trying to understand or help him. The story is solely narrated by Easton but a lot of things are still left in the dark regarding his dark feelings and Hartley’s past so would have loved to see some things from the girl point of view too. Also I don’t really get the last scene yet but it’s sure as hell a big cliffhanger. Other than this I absolutely loved Fallen heir even if at part some characters irritated me to no ends and can’t wait for the next one.

    Big Bang Ending!

    4.5 Stars Wow! That was some ending! Fallen Heir is Easton Royal's book. With Reed and Gideon away at college, he's now the oldest at home. He's led a life of privilege and money gets him out of any of his many situations that usually involve sex and / or drinking. He's cocky and has a fairly high opinion of himself -- at least until he strips away some of his bravado and we get to see the real Easton. Easton becomes interested in Hartley, the new girl at school. It starts off more as a challenge because Hartley really doesn't want anything to do with Easton. But he slowly worms his way into her heart. The book is entirely in Easton's voice, which I liked. I actually found myself liking Easton, even though I wanted to whack some sense into him most if the time and he kept repeating the same mistakes. But when he showed some vulnerability, especially with Hartley, I really liked him. As for Hartley, she got on my nerves at times mostly because I didn't quite believe her circumstances, which were very sad when revealed. She did have some backbone and I did like her self sufficiency and sense of honor, especially in contrast with all the morally bankrupt adults in the book. This book follows a similar pacing as the previous books in the series. There's a very slow build to the story and at times I found myself getting frustrated with that, but then toward the end the pace speeds up and hits like a freight train. In Fallen Heir, I never saw that train coming and I absolutely loved that about this story! I was blown away by the cliffhanger ending (it's a doozy) and now I can't wait to see what's going to happen next. Loved the big bang ending, so I'm giving this 4 1/2 stars in spite of the slow build. This really is not a standalone read, and I do recommend reading the first three books in the series before tackling Fallen Heir. If you are a fan of intrigue among the wealthy, then you may like this series. An ARC was provided for review.

    starsGet Ready To Be Ruined Again!

    After meeting happy go lucky Easton in The Royals #1-#3, I could not wait to get my hands on this book! If you're a fan of Easton, you will devour this! You certainly don't need to read the previous books to enjoy this story though, since books #1-#3 focus on Easton's older brother, Reed. Just know that Fallen Heir is book 1 of Easton's story, so prepare yourself for the ending (and subsequent wait until the next book). The book is told completely from Easton's point of view, and really showed that he is so much more complex than he appears. Sure, he's cocky, arrogant, and every bit a Royal, but as you strip away the layers, you find that entitled bravado is masking a lot of confusion, insecurity, and pain. Honestly, there were times I wanted to just reach through my kindle and hug him, but just as quickly I wanted to slap him across the face and shake some sense into him. Though his character did grow through the course of the book, it felt like each step forward often resulted in him stumbling backwards a few as well. I'm hopeful that he'll get there in the end. I really enjoyed his banter with Hartley and their push and pull. Her immunity to his charms and advances only endeared me to her and my respect for her grew as her backstory began to unfold. I apologize for the vagueness of this review, but I really want readers to be able to truly experience this story on their own. It's pretty much guaranteed that you will feel a lot of different emotions while reading this book - happiness, anger, heartbreak, fear, disgust, hope, and despair to name a few. If you've read Erin Watt before though, you know that things might get uncomfortable and crazy, but just trust the story and enjoy the ride. *I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*

    Love this series!

    5 Stars In the previous titles of The Royals, I have always loved Easton's character. He's incredibly complex, broken, damaged and has self destructive tendencies. He's a character who uses humor as a self defense mechanism, in order to hide his true feelings. The timeline for this title is after the previous books in the series Paper Princess, Broken Prince, and Twisted Palace. If you are a newsletter subscriber I would also recommend reading Tarnished Crown prior to reading Fallen Heir, as there are certain pieces of information revealed in this title that will ruin the reveal factor in the previous books. Fallen Heir is told solely from Easton's point of view so in this title we see the true Easton and find that he's actually incredibly intelligent, sweet, endearing and funny. There is so much more than meets the eye, when it comes to Easton Royal. I adored his quirky personality traits and the humor filled one liners that had me snickering and laughing out loud. Easton Royal is a survivor, he's incredibly stubborn, and passionate, yet love-able, his personality is quite addictive. Easton loves to aggravate others, by being the thorn in their side, it entertains him to no end. Although he is incredibly charming, trouble seems to find him, and he loves a challenge. Easton loves to flirt and the sexual innuendo's seem to just roll off his tongue. He tends to hide his true self behind an arrogance, and says what he thinks despite the consequences. I loved watching his character evolve and grow over the course of this title and my perceptions of his character changed drastically. He has a huge heart and is a really good guy, at times he needs to work on his delivery, but has honorable intentions and his heart is in the right place, but often hides behind a fake persona pretending to be quite reckless and thoughtless. Hartley is incredibly complex, and whilst like-able she is also kind of frustrating. She's independent, private, proud and works hard. But boys does she have secrets. The banter between Hartley and Easton is fun, and full of flirting, and more often than not quite argumentative. They have amazing sexual tensions that just oozes off the page, but their relationship is incredibly rocky and they constantly push and pull at one another. In Hartley, Easton has met his match unlike the females he is used to, she has no interest in falling at his feet, or bagging herself a Royal. I loved that we still see plenty of the other Royals in this title, and have plenty of Elle and snippets with Reed. Overall I loved this addition to this completely captivating and entertaining series, and cannot wait for the next title in this series. Be prepared that this title does end on a cliffhanger, so if you don't want to wait for the rest of Easton and Hartley's story, you may want to wait for the next installment in January to release.

    Holy Cow!

    I have been trying to put this review together and I keep starting and stopping. Did I like it? Yes, I did. Was it what I expected? Yes and no. I have loved Easton from the beginning and I couldn’t wait for his book. I was happy that Reed only had a small part in this book, as he had his story. Ella and Val are involved in all that is Astor Prep as Ella is the reigning royalty since Reed left for college. Easton wants no part in ruling the school and is leaving it to Ella. My love for Easton still stands and my heart hurts for him. He is so misguided and has good intentions, but he still screws it up. He has addiction issues, fighting, alcohol and sex. When he met Hartley, I thought he would get a handle on it, however, he continued to flounder. He is tormented by his past and present. Hartley is an enigma to Easton. He can’t figure her out. He’s attracted to her and she shoots him down and he just keeps coming. He figures he can wear her down. There is a lot of push and pull going on. Secrets add to the intrigue as well. Easton is left to his own devices. What a tangled web and what a mess! I certainly didn’t expect that ending! Holy crap! Cliffhangers of all cliffhangers! Now what is the difficulty I was having? I felt that it dragged in a few places. Felt repetitive. I still love these authors and love the characters and I can’t wait for Cracked Kingdom!
