The Royals series has been a completely surprising hit with me. The characters completely lack diversity, the male characters are all alpha males and the plots read like pages taken from a soap opera writer's reject bin. Despite this, the stories are beyond engaging and the characters are just brilliant. I can only imagine that this is the last Royals book and it was a satisfying ending. We pick up where book four left off, where there's been a car accident (I won't spoiler it and say who) and Hartley is now suffering from amnesia.
That's right. Amnesia.
Just when you thought it couldn't get any more like Days Of Our Lives, they trot out amnesia as a plot device.
And yet, I still found myself reading. I just can't put these books down - they're like literary crack.
So Easton now has to woo her back and remind her how much she really likes him. Obviously he manages to almost-but-not-quite screw things up, but I don't think I'm spoilering things too much by saying that things work out okay in the end.
The intervening plot is totally like a soap opera, thought.
I really, really hope Erin Watt writing team continues writing. I find their stories engaging to a fault (the fault being that I basically ignore the rest of my life while I'm reading them) and they are genuinely entertaining.
