Welcome to their kingdom…
I never thought I’d step foot in Royal Manor again.
But four years later, here I am…back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy.
And forced to face Jace Covington.
My first friend. First crush. First kiss.
The one I left behind.
Only—he isn’t the same boy I gave my heart to.
This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous.
And he’s determined to make my life a living hell.
Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants.
They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I’d rather eat dirt.
If Jace Covington wants me gone…he’ll have to try harder.
Because I’ve never been the kind of girl to play by the rules.
This book started out, and I was thinking way too much drama. But after reading almost halfway through it, I couldn’t put it down. The main characters and turmoil in the book are well defined and highlighted throughout the story. Tragedy and brokenness are definitely themes in this book, along with all the taboo topics you can think of but presented perfectly in this story. I found myself intrigued, heartbroken, surprised, and even shocked by the end of this story. Jace and Dylan have a hot and cold relationship with so much past to get over to find their way it almost seems impossible. This book is steamy and will take your emotions on a roller coaster.
Can he forgive her?
Can she forgive herself?
Can they love again?
How many times can you have your heart broken before you give up and move on?
I loved that author took a risk and included so many topics that are usually stayed away from. The fact she was comfortable interweaving these into her story gave the book so much more depth. This story does have more books in the series, but they focus on other characters.
I look forward to reading those and being just as stunned as I was with this book. This is definitely something I will read again. I love the feelings the author invoked. She could connect her characters to her readers and elicit tears and smiles during specific chapters.
This book is for a mature audience only. It does contain triggers of bullying, underage drinking, drugs, incest and suicide, and steamy content.
