Welcome to their kingdom.
They call me a heartless b*tch.
An evil manipulator.
A wicked princess who enjoys hurting people.
They tell me terrible things happened.
Things that changed my life forever.
Only problem is…
I can’t remember any of it.
This book starts with very baffling flashbacks, of course, but also new issues. I wish the author would have given us more info on the in-between from this one to the last book. But as the book progresses, we see a different side to this family. I guess trauma will do that. I love the new twist on characters we have grown to love and even the maturity shown in this book. While the book is still mature-rated, it didn’t disappoint in the romance and heart-wrenching details.
Bianca Covington is definitely different in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed her personality coming out and getting to know other characters we have met but not learned about. Although the book focuses on Bianca and Stone. The whole crew is present and represented minus Oakley. The book ends so sweet I could not wait to read the next book in this series. Despite not my favorite character, Bianca really does have a fantastic story and life-altering change in this book. I think the whole family adapted well and came through when it matters most. I loved that there were life lessons interwoven into the story.
This book is for a mature audience and it includes senstive content that may disturb some readers.
This is book 3 in the Royal Hearts Academy series. Please note: Although this is Bianca’s book, Cruel Prince (Jace and Dylan’s book) and Ruthless Knight (Cole and Sawyer’s book) should be read first for a better understanding of the family dynamic.
