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.
If you are a returning reader for this series, there are two kinds of people in this world:
fPeople who read this book to see more of Ella and Reed, and liars.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Easton. But I honestly came back for Reed and Ella.
This book is a classic bad/popular boy with problems and the only girl who doesn't want him. Because of that, this book can actually be read as a standalone.
I feel like if I was having a craving for bad/popular boy romance, then I would've enjoyed this book a lot more. But I won't let that affect my opinion on the book and its actual review.
I was on a contemporary marathon earlier thanks to some of the excellent contemporary books that I read, but after this book I am officially done for a while.
Reading this book was so tiring. All the drama and soap-opera-like story just got me like:
Even though I am so happy of this book's existence because of my love for the series (I have to be honest here, and I really hate to say this), I started to feel like this series is dragging. If this series continues, and everywhere the royals go are going to dramas like this and mother effing b*****s like Felicity, I legit cannot handle that anymore.
But then I feel like I shouldn't be saying this because again, I want to see more Ella and Reed. And how this is a contemporary romance book, and this genre is all about the drama.
I actually do recommend this as a standalone for anyone craving for a good bad-popular boy with the only girl who doesn't want him book, and if I felt like if I read this book then, I would've enjoyed it a lot more.
This book was not exhausting because it's bad, but it's just the drama is so infuriating. That is also because I think my high drive for contemporary is over, so I'm not really in a mood for all these drama anymore. Because this is more of my own problem with the drama, I didn't let it affect my review on the book itself.
Overall, this is a good book for anymore who enjoyed the genre at the moment, so I give it four stars.
