    I absolutely LOVEDDDD the All the Pretty Things series, so I was so excited to see that this duet I think it s a duet was about Alek, a pretty prominent character and not so good guy from that trilogy Before picking this book up, I definitely recommend you read the initial trilogy first It s not necessary, but I understood Alek s character so muchthan I would have if I didn t already know him and what he went through Some things Alek does and people he s trusted made me really frustr I absolutely LOVEDDDD the All the Pretty Things series, so I was so excited to see that this duet I think it s a duet was about Alek, a pretty prominent character and not so good guy from that trilogy Before picking this book up, I definitely recommend you read the initial trilogy first It s not necessary, but I understood Alek s character so muchthan I would have if I didn t already know him and what he went through Some things Alek does and people he s trusted made me really frustrated, but I had to remember what he had gone through and what was going through his mind His blind trust of one specific character still makes me annoyed with him, but moving past that, Alek is a very bad man learning some of his humanity while trying to steal his kingdom back If you like romances about bad guys, this book is definitely for you Alek is used to getting what he wants and he s determined to take back his power from his brother I enjoyed how the romance kind of started out as a love triangle and definitely involves a forbidden aspect to it Every character in this book had secrets, so you had no idea who you could trust or what people were going to do I did think the internal monologue of Alek became a bit repetitive and would go on a little too long, but then the action and storyline would pick up again The romance in here is angsty, angry, and dangerous, which is everything I expect from a Monica James book Of course, this ended on a cliffhanger since it s only book one, but we don t have to wait long for book two, which is releasing in September

    Monica James sure knows how to make you love a Villain I went into this story without any background knowledge and let me tell you something I fell for these characters hard and fast It was unexpected, thrilling , and knowing that you got to witness the ups and downs with these characters, made the story that much better What would you do if you had so much power, you were feared with just the whisper of your name being spoken That is what life was like for Aleksei and he ruled his kingdom Monica James sure knows how to make you love a Villain I went into this story without any background knowledge and let me tell you something I fell for these characters hard and fast It was unexpected, thrilling , and knowing that you got to witness the ups and downs with these characters, made the story that much better What would you do if you had so much power, you were feared with just the whisper of your name being spoken That is what life was like for Aleksei and he ruled his kingdom with a brutal iron fist But you know what they say, what goes up must come down and Alek took a hard fall from grace Now determined to get back his empire and rule again, one must do wicked things to reach his goal and who sbetter for the job than a skillful sinner Aleksei was not your typical hero and I really liked that This man was extremely flawed and he s done things in his past that will literally make you want to set him on fire but you know what He owns up to it and he knows exactly the type of man that he is Without ever having read the All the pretty things trilogy, I went into this story expecting a somewhat messed up hero with a dark past but I got so muchthan that We witnessed his struggles, his quest for vengeance, redemption, and we saw a man that despite all of the chaos, was a fierce protector I don t want to give anything away in this story so I m just going to say that if you ve read the previous trilogy, then you re going to fall in love with this book evenI cannot wait to see what this author has in store for us with part two because I KNOW we will be saying All hail the King.

    image image This book was everything I asked for and .Aleksei Popov is as bad as a man can be He did unredeemable things and hurt a lot of innocent people Wherever he goes pain and death fallows along He once was the man who ruled with an iron fist, now he is forced to hide in the shadows His only purpose is killing his half brother and mother for taking everything aimage image This book was everything I asked for and .Aleksei Popov is as bad as a man can be He did unredeemable things and hurt a lot of innocent people Wherever he goes pain and death fallows along He once was the man who ruled with an iron fist, now he is forced to hide in the shadows His only purpose is killing his half brother and mother for taking everything away from him.After loving the only woman who did not love him back, he did not expect to be able to form a connection with another one Until he laid eyes on Sister Arabella An American who transferred to help the sisters with the children Now he will not only seek vengeance but built a kingdom for his new queen.Monica James has a way to make the perfect anti hero of all times To say I love Alek would be an understatement I FUCKING ADORE HIM It s true he did very bad things but he is redeemable He has a big heart and he is doing his best to help the people he cares about and seek forgiveness for his deeds , ,, .This was EPIC I honestly don t know what i m gonna do with myself now The wait is gonna kill me
