Publisher's Summary

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.

Not a Complete Story

My major complaint is that you only get part of the book, not a full story, so have book 5 on hand.
I could say this is a cliffhanger, but there's a big difference between a closing cliffhanger and having absolutely zero resolution to any part of the story, which is what this book does.

Other than that, it's similar to the first three, though with more contained drama. It's on that same wild thread, just much tamer.

I honestly think the last two books should have been one book, and the ending of this story should have been the midpoint of the book. That would have made a lot more sense, and some of the unnecessary excess could have been cut.

Better than the first 3

For some reason, I think I liked this book better then the first 3. I find Easton a bit more interesting. It’s been a long stretch between book 3 and 4 for me, only because after reading the first 3, I was “meh”. I didn’t feel like continuing. But its the end of the year and I wanted to up my “Read” count quickly. And this fit the bill AND it became available on audio as well. Easy read for my commute to work.

Not a lot goes on in the first half or so. Easton is pursuing Hartley and she wants nothing to do with him. Easton cannot understand how anyone could resist him, ‘cause everybody wants him. “You are nothing but trouble, Easton”, and he is. What I like about THIS story vs the previous 3, is the “entitlement” and selfish nature of Easton and how Hartley calls him on it. Easton berates the girls of Aster for being entitled bitches, but what about him? Everything Easton does is for Easton, not anyone else. Easton begins to think about this but still makes stupid selfish decisions that hurt others. By the end of the book, we have a cliff hanger. I can guess what happens next, as I’ve read enough of this genre to see the freight train coming, but I’ll dive into book 5. I need to see how this turns out.

A MUST READ/LISTEN

Loved hearing Easton's story. Zachary Webber is by far my favorite male narrator of all the audible books I've listened to.

A great series but personally not my favorite

I was a bit disappointed because I preordered this book and the next too because I was so excited to keep listening and checked constantly in with audible but it just didn't have the same effect that the story had with the previous books:(?
However it is still a good book and FANTASTIC narration which is most certainly worth a credit:)

Favorite in the series

I'm enjoying the Royal series so much but have found it to be immature and over sexualized at times. I like that this book really delves into East's character and takes you on a journey through his trauma as well as how he thinks and why he acts in the ways he does. Loved the author's depiction of a boy becoming a man who just wants to see and be seen. Beautiful story with a huge cliff hanger at the end. The voice acting was great and really allowed for full engagement with the story. 5 stars all around!

😩😩😩

Oh. My. Gosh! Please tell me that’s not what really happens! I will be so upset, but sometimes one’s actions will set a domino effect that will hurt others.

I’m so glad that Easton gets his own story. I loved him in the first three books. He’s a tortured soul, but he’s a big teddy bear. I loved the relationship he had with Ella and how protective he was of her as a friend and a “brother”. I love the relationship he has with his brothers as well. He cares about people. He wants to do the right thing, but sometimes he messes up in the process. I even liked how he cared about Hartley.

Zachary Webber’s performance was near perfection. He has a way of bringing out the personality of each character. I can actually picture Easton acting and talking the way Zachary portrays him. The way he annunciates, and raises and lowers his voice at certain times, is mind boggling. I don’t think reading this book would be as fun as listening to him read it to you. Take my word, you will swoon. This boy could read the phone book and make it entertaining to you.

CLIFFHANGER ending, be warned!

Holy cow, to be immersed back into the Royal’s life is like being in another world! The Royal family is nonstop drama, which of course kept me hooked the entire time… but those kids at school are no joke! I loved Easton in the first three books about Ella and Reed, he was entertaining and troubled so I was excited to get to his story. It was tough listening to this book because some of my love for the family dimmed. Watching Easton struggle with the drinking was hard, but watching how is family handled it was even harder… I wanted to yell at them when his punishment for being stupid and drunk was to be left in the house alone and filled with alcohol! Hartley was great, I loved the bit of mystery about her but I am really hoping she gets some strength in the next book… she tends to be more of a people pleaser and I am dying to see her more of a bada$$ like Ella! Her dad needs junk punched and all the girls at school need b*tch slapped, I don’t know how someone with addiction problems like Easton has survived there this long. The only downfall is the CLIFFHANGER! I should have known going into it since the previous books had big ones but I really didn’t see this one coming!

As always, Zachary Webber did an amazing job narrating, I'm pretty sure I would listen to him narrate anything!

Love Easton!

Wow this was incredible! I loved getting a deeper glimpse into Easton. The answers to why he feels so tortured. Obviously meeting Hartley has been Easton's biggest challenge but ultimately best reward. I can't wait to find out what happens in Crack Kingdom after that unbelievable cliff hanger!!!

Fallen Heir

Jesus, this cliffhanger is not cool. I went from hating Easton and his dumb decisions to something else completely. I don't even know how to rate this without being influenced from it. These kids are evil and I hate it. Loved Hartley though, sucks how much her young self has been through.

Good humor with a lot of frustrating instances.

I don't know what to think

The first three books I enjoyed but it was boring to listen to this book
Zachary did a good job Well done !!!
I'm kind of disappointed Easton was made such a boring story
The story was unfinished and ended with a twist.
