These Royals will ruin you.
Ever since Hartley Wright met Easton Royal, her life hasn’t been the same. There are enemies behind every corner and dangers beyond each door. When tragedy strikes and steals her memories, she can’t trust anyone, not even the blue-eyed boy who promises her that everything will be all right.
Because while Hartley’s memory is full of gaps, her instincts tell her Easton is dangerous. She doesn’t know if he’s the snake in the garden or her chance at salvation. The chaos he brings wherever he goes is too much to handle, the intense feelings he evokes are too confusing to unravel.
Easton wants her to remember. Hartley thinks it’s better to forget.
She might be right.
Tragedy. Treachery. Trust. Hartley has to face the facts—in this world, you can’t escape the Royals.
Either you live by their rules or you die by them.
So, I have been all about this series and have loved its over the topness. I especially like the last book because Easton is such a screwed up mess, and his head is an interesting place to be. But what the heck happened here?
I’m not going to give anything away or spoil what happened, but I will say I expected more. I expected more darkness with Easton and him battling his demons with Hartley to be there to help him guide his way. But even the romance felt forced in some parts. Easton and Hartley do have great chemistry, but with everything that was going on, things shouldn’t be all fine and dandy!!!
There was a shocking part that I was like, “Whoa I wasn’t expecting that.” But the other big twist I had guessed was going to happen based on the last book! The ending wrapped up rather strangely, and I am still left with some questions that I want answers to dangit!
Have you started this series?
