FALLEN HEIR: Is the 4th book within the (Royals Series) by Erin Watt. 

With Reed out of the picture, Easton Royal's now a senior and now the reigning King of Astor Park Prep High School, nothing has changed, a school for the privileged elite, the students run the show while the teachers sit back and watch, with their trust funds and their luxury cars, yachts and designer clothes, and private jets if you're a Royal. Easton's back to his old ways, partying too hard and fighting his demons, a thirst for violence. 

I'm the Royal screw-up who gets into fights and drinks too much and pisses everyone off all the time. 

He’s beyond caring about anything, school bores him though he’s extremely intelligent his grades don’t broadcast that fact. He just wants to stay being a teenager doing shit without having to grow up. He’s gorgeous and he knows it, and he uses that to his advantage with one flash of his dimples girls panties drop like flies, he also comes from a privileged family, the world is his oyster, he’s extremely conceited and every bit shallow. 

I figured my senior year was going to be boring as hell. Ella spends most of her time talking to Reed on the phone. The twins are busy with their lives. Gideon’s at college. I’m the odd man out and have been my whole life. 

Until a new plaything is thrown in his lap when he’s caught in a compromising position with a teacher, Hartley Wright a newcomer to the school. She’s a nice distraction but all her puzzle pieces don’t add up and I think that’s what intrigues Easton about her, ignore the fact that she’s the only girl that’s ever said no to him. And he's not above stalking her. She also brings out a vulnerable side to Easton we’ve not seen before. 

This girl is a mystery. Her parents live in an expensive mansion. Her dad is a big shot prosecutor. Hartley, meanwhile, lives in the worst part of Bayview. And yet she attends the best school in the state. 

Easton kind of rubbed me up the wrong way in this book, his immaturity and his old ways started to get on my nerves. His aspirations were his whoring ways, fighting, and wanting to fly. 

I'm a bad, selfish person. I drink and I fight and I screw girls I shouldn't screw. I'll own that. 

We saw him kind of settling down into a rhythm with Elle in his corner but in this book it was like he’d taken many steps backwards. And it's fair to say I didn't really like him in this book. There were many a time where I wanted to bitch slap some sense into him, but even with his flaws you couldn’t stop reading even if you wanted to.

I'm Easton Royal and my goal in life is to do what makes me happy. So long as no one gets hurt, it's all good. The problem is someone is always getting hurt. 

I’m still as good looking as ever. Charming and hilarious. My body could be on the cover of a magazine, partly thanks to good genes, but I work on it, too, lifting and football. Nah, I haven’t lost it. 

The best part of this book overall was the ending. A cliff hanger like no other before it, screams as we all fall over it, needing, wanting, waiting for January to arrive before we can all get over this ending. So many unanswered questions that are left hanging! 

“There’s still another book in the Royals saga. Cracked Kingdom will be published the beginning of January. That’s not too long!” (Says no one ever) 😫
