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.
Warning: This book has a cliffhanger. The story will be resolved in Cracked Kingdom, due out January 2018.

This book was full of surprises. Easton is both infuriating and heartwarming. Hartley is a strong character with an interesting past who doesn’t take crap from anyone including Easton. This book captures high-school perfectly, I would know being in high school currently.
Not as good as the first 3
Don’t get me wrong I still enjoyed reading it. But I didn’t care as much about the characters as I did in the previous book. I missed Reed and Ella! I also felt like I had to push through this one, while the other ones pulled me right along. I’m hoping cracked kingdom is better!!
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!
