    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.

    Easton really is the best and worst Royal.

    Easton is a complicated character, you adore him but despise his actions. Great story!

    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*

    Easton is more than we bargained for...

    4.5 stars for - Fallen Heir - book four in The Royals series by Erin Watt. This is only the first part of Easton's story and it does end in one heck of a cliff-hanger so consider yourself warned. While this book can technically be read as a stand-alone I personally fell in love with Easton during the first three books in the series and think you would get a much better understanding of him if you read those first. Easton Royal is starting his senior year of high school and with Reed away at college he is the eldest of the Royal siblings at Astor Park Prep and at the very top of the proverbial totem pole. Easton couldn't care less about popularity, but instead enjoys finding outlets for his other vices. Getting caught in a crazy situation has never mattered to him before but the person who caught him this time is so different from anyone else in his life so of course he is a bit intrigued. Hartley Wright is a new transfer to Astor and wants nothing more than to keep her head down and focus on graduating. Walking into a classroom and discovering a crazy situation is the least of her worries, but the guy in said situation doesn't seem to realize she won't say anything. He is determined to befriend her and won't take no for an answer. After relentlessly pursuing her to become his friend she finally agrees then things start to get rather interesting when she discovers he is way more than a pretty face and incredibly hot body. The dynamic author duo of Erin Watt only scratch the surface with all the angst, pain, and emotional turmoil that flows through Easton's fractured soul. With many questions arising about Easton that reach way beyond anything he ever imagined we are left wondering about so many things. Hartley's world is also left in shambles as her father threatens to make good on his promise to send her little sister away to boarding school among so many other things. Lives are on the line as we are left on the end of our seats until the next installment.
