I’m pretty new to paranormal romance, but I couldn’t pass a Natalie Bennett book. Having read her “Badlands” series, I’m totally hooked on her twisted stories!! This book was nothing less of what I expected from her! Another crazy twisted story to keep me in love with her writing!
I can’t really explain the whole paranormal background of the story because it’s pretty complicated; I still have some questions myself! Both Duvessa and Reyes are supernatural beings, but Reyes was made and not born. Duvessa is a royalty in this world but she can’t take her rightful place because someone is hunting her down. Reyes is a self-proclaimed king on his own land, commanding people with fear. When she seeks him out for help, he takes her as his queen without her agreement.
I had the feeling through the whole book that Reyes has his own agenda. His actions are confusing Duvessa and she can’t decide if she wants to trust him or not. They are both strong opinionated, so they constantly fight for dominance.
This book sets the mood perfectly for the next one. It gives us information about the world we are reading about but leave us with so many questions at the end. The author definitely succeeded on building up interest and left me wanting the next book now!!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don’t follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA’s.
When she isn’t in front of her computer she’s spending time with her husband and their three little boys.
Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.
