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.
Wow what a roller coaster ride this one was and the ride isn’t done yet. This one was another absolute fabulous saga of the Royal family with the story focusing this time on Easton Royal.
Easton Royal is the middle child in the Royal family and the one that always seems to be on his own, Gideon and Reed are the older brooding brothers off at college and Sebastian and Sawyer are the younger twin brothers leaving Easton to be the odd man out. From the moment he meets Hartley he is intrigued by her and determined to turn her no to him into a yes. He can see she’s attracted to him but she’s holding herself back for some reason and he’s determined to find out why.
Easton Royal is cocky and a bit of a complete mess when it comes to his life but I couldn’t help but fall in love with him. And I must say as the story progressed and as we got to see more of the real Easton, I loved who we got to see. Yes he was still cocky, but he was sweet and caring. We realize Easton has his own issues and in the end, it sometimes just causes him to not always think things through, he never sets out to harm anyone.
I loved Hartley’s character. She was a bit of a mystery for most of this story but she was such a great strong female lead. I loved how she was determined to not give into Easton charms. And I must say I loved the dynamic the author built between these two. I loved that their relationship was the typical one of mutual attraction from the start that they give into. I really enjoyed her making him work for it and loved that in the end he settled for her friendship.
Overall this was a really fabulous read that I couldn’t put down and if you loved the first few books in this series and you love a good angsty high school drama themed type romance you will love be this one. This one is a great mix of fun and flirty moments but also angsty teen drama. Overall a great first installment in Eastons duet and I am dying to see where the author is going to take their story.
