Finished this in one day after my book slump
Of course I’m going back to my book slump now
But no one can ignore an Erin Watt book because they’re simply amazing.
Thank you Erin Watt for blessing me with this e-ARC and giving me the opportunity to read it before it gets released and die before everyone else does, and therefore have a longer and more agonizing wait.
Btw you might wanna finish reading the previous three novels before reading this, cus I might put spoilers from previous books here, and plot points in which you won’t understand.
Name: Fallen Heir
Author: Erin Watt
Publisher: Everafter Romance
Release Date: August 28, 2017
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.
Book Cover Comments
I simply love that shade of purple, and its also like you know, royalty color. This time we get a staff/stick/doodad and its pretty sick. I’m in love with the cover and I can’t wait to get my hands on a paperback copy when the physical book comes out.
RECAP: Paper Princess focuses on Ella Environment, Broken Prince on Reed Redemption, Twisted Palace on Event Ecstasy. Fallen Heir? EASTON EFFING ROYAL.
This book and the next book, Cracked Kingdom, will be focusing on Easton’s story and his life. This takes place after Tarnished Crown (Book 3.5 on Gideon) in which I have yet to read cus I want to read it in one sitting instead of waiting for a chapter to be released each week. So unfortunately Reed is at college, but hey, we musn’t cast our first three book’s heroine, Ella aside. She continues to be super badass.
Where do I even start in this amazing first book about Easton? ok fine no one ever said that Easton is a Reed, because he isn’t. Throughout this book, Easton goes through a lot, like ALOT. He’s getting out there, seeing the world and begins to listen to others. Easton’s going through an emotional rollercoaster on redemption and self realisation, his role in his family and his behavior, how that affects others and himself, all of that because of one girl.
Oh Hartley. Now she too is a tough character. But I love Hartley. I have to say she’s real steal. Her outer shell is really strong for what she went through, is going through, in which you’ll be super excited to know about when you read this book because its super super amazing, and also how she behaves towards Easton. Easton tries real hard to break that outer walnut shell and gets to know Hartley, and so she’s his game changer. I’m glad to see the flower starting to bloom.
But Royals never let you go without some beef.
Oh yes the beef. This is a spoiler free zone unfortunately, so I can’t say a word, but there are two major beefs. The second one ends when the book ends and is a major major major cliffhanger. I’m not kidding. The moment I got to the last page on my Kindle, I knew I was going to die since I have to wait from now, aka mid-August all the way to January. That’s not very fun at all. And all the ups and downs that Easton has to go through just kills me.
I super love Hartley though. The way she acts when her softer self emerges and feels safer around Easton (sigh I mean its Easton Royal) and then when some sweet butterfly heartache scenes emerge.. the butterflies even come out when I just can’t bare to see Easton’s love struggles. Unlike Paper Princess, Broken Prince and Twisted Palace, the hot and steaminess really toned down even though it makes sense because of the plot line and progression in Fallen Heir, but I do have high hopes and expectations for what is to come in Cracked Kingdom. And I’m dying to read it.
For anyone who’s dying for a sweetheart romance and lots of drama and beef, go and pick up Paper Princess and start reading, then get all the way to Fallen Heir, and then feel my anticipation-caused-death for Cracked Kingdom.
