Series Review|The Royals by Erin Watt (4+5)

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.

One read through is enough. This was more soap opera dramatics than I can handle for one lifetime.

If it’s a series, would you continue reading it?
I completed the whole series, thankfully. No more for me.

Is this a part of a challenge?
This is for my #ASeriesAMonth2018 challenge

Who would you recommend this for?
Someone who likes dramatic contemporaries and enjoy watching soap operas and reality shows.


This series was an adventure. Honestly, these are definitely two books that were not needed in the series. I think leaving it at Ella and Reed’s arc would have been perfectly fine. Does that mean I didn’t enjoy reading them? No. Not at all. It was enjoyable enough, but to be perfectly honest, the only reason I read these two is because of the #ASeriesAMonth2018 challenge that I’m participating in. If I wasn’t determined to complete this challenge, I wouldn’t of even glanced at Easton’s books.

There’s a lot more wrong with these books that meets the eye. Easton has extreme issues, and the fact that his family is mostly just covering for him and not helping him get the help he so desperately needs, that’s disheartening. It didn’t even come up… ever.

So yeah, while these certainly aren’t bad books, I would definitely caution you to buy one book at a time so you don’t waste money and lose interest part way through.

Until next time!

  1. Great review. I agree. There’s so much about this series that’s so entertaining, but, on the other hand, there’s so many problems. If they write more books I will not be continuing.

      I’m hoping they’re done. I kind of think they are, but at the same time there was that weird comments from Hartley’s sister about the twins that makes me think they might be working on more. :/

      1. When I first heard they were writing more I was hoping for the twins since I was super interested in their weird relationship. But after Cracked Kingdom, I didn’t like where the twins’ story was left.
