Book Review: Cracked Kingdom by Erin Watt

Title: Cracked Kingdom by Erin Watt

Goodreads Summary:

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.

Review: This book was really very good. I want to say that it has more drama in it than the other books in the series. Most of it though was towards the end which kind of made the beginning a little slow but I do think that it all works together. The characters really developed in this book and you can see their growth and more of who they are. The characters that you can really see grow and develop is Easton and Harley. They both really come together and are the perfect pair. You really get to learn more about both of them. I’m not sure if there are going to be anymore books in the Royals Series but if there are not I think this book is the perfect ending. I give this book a four and half out of five stars.

Miles for Mills

So I know this isn’t book related and probably asking a lot but I though why not give it a shot.

On Memorial Day I am taking part in my first 5K called Miles for Mills. Everything that is raised goes toward the Travis Mills foundation that helps him provide a wonderful experience for veterans who have been wounded and their families at a retreat located in Belgrade, Maine. Last year they were able to host 84 families.

I would love it if you could help me raise money for this amazing foundation that gives back to the incredible men and women that fight for our great country. You can read more here.

Book Review:Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

Title: Fallen Heir by Erin Watt

Goodreads 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.

Review: I don’t even know where to begin with this book. I loved the first three and was really excited when this one came out to continue the story of the Royal brothers. It at first wasn’t like I thought it was going to be because it started out really slowly but as I continued reading it all just kept building and building. I couldn’t wait to finish it. I really enjoyed reading Easton’s point of view in this book. You really got to see who he really is and what he struggles with. You get to see Easton actually have to work towards a relationship with Hartley instead of her just falling for him because of who he is. You can see the they both have gone through so much in their lives and that those events have really affected them. I definitely felt like this book was leading up to something huge and I can’t wait to continue reading the next book in the Royal series to find out! I give this book a five out of five.

“It’s my mum.” She huffed to a stop in front of us and then began to pace as she elaborated. “I wanted a simple dress. Elegant and flowin’ like a mermaid. Or a glen fairy. With a garland of wildflowers. But mum, she told the dressmaker lace. Yards and yards of stiff, itchy lace. An’ she’s got the milliner creating this abomination of a veil. I’m going ta look like a giant cumulous cloud!” She paused her movement on the last statement for emphasis” -page 129

Book Review: Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Title: Doon by Carey Corp and Lorie Langdon

Goodreads Summary:

DOON…

Veronica doesn’t think she’s going crazy. But why can’t anyone else see the mysterious blond boy who keeps popping up wherever she goes? When her best friend, Mackenna, invites her to spend the summer in Scotland, Veronica jumps at the opportunity to leave her complicated life behind for a few months.

But the Scottish countryside holds other plans.

Not only has the imaginary kilted boy followed her to Alloway, she and Mackenna uncover a strange set of rings and a very unnerving letter from Mackenna’s great aunt—and when the girls test the instructions Aunt Gracie left behind, they find themselves transported to a land that defies explanation. Doon seems like a real-life fairy tale, complete with one prince who has eyes for Mackenna and another who looks suspiciously like the boy from Veronica’s daydreams. But Doon has a dark underbelly as well. The two girls could have everything they’ve longed for…or they could end up breaking an enchantment and find themselves trapped in a world that has become a nightmare.

Review: This book/series has been on my TBR for a while now and I finally decided to start reading them. I am so glad I did. This first book had me wanting more at every turn. The authors develop the story very well and I really liked the different viewpoints from the two main characters Veronica and Kenna. If you like a fairytale mixed with action then this is the book for you. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series to see what happens next. I give this book at five out of five.
