September 21, 2020

Monica James 

With the enemy dead, my throne awaits my return. But the reason I’m still standing is being held captive by another foe.
I’ll move heaven and hell to find her, but when I do, everything changes forever. Ella is broken, broken because of me.
The only way to save her is to return to the ruthless leader I once was.
A war has been waged, and to win, I need to kill every last traitor and rebuild my kingdom to make her feel safe once more.
However, this war is like no other. And my enemy won’t stop until one of us is dead. But he doesn’t stand a chance. None of them do.
I’m a bad man. And I’m okay with that.
This is my world.
My rules.
I’m the goddamn king, and it’s time to adjust my crown.

I need a minute because that was one hell of a ride!! This was gritty, unforgivable, and shock worthy with revengeful lust that will have you bracing for impact. Aleksei Popov is back and badder than ever and he wants his kingdom. You know what they say about fallen kings, once they get up and adjust their crown, be ready for a more ruthless king.


I fell in love with the first book of this duet and after reading the cliffhanger, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on part two. Alek was thrown a curveball and he wanted nothing more than to get back what was rightfully his including Ella. But things are far from what they seem and what was supposed to be a slightly tough climb to the top, will end up being the biggest fight of his life because he’s not going into battle. He’s going to war.


Told from dual pov’s The Devil’s Crown will have you biting your nails your nails until the very end. Everything that you thought can go wrong, will. Friends will be enemies, enemies will be friends and enemies, and you my friend, will need a drink and a therapist trying to figure things out. Ella and Alek’s journey will be a long and bloody because if you know them, it will have bullet holes and scars. Their crowns will be tarnished and need adjusting, but you can never expect anything different from this couple and that’s the reason why you will be rooting for them. They were Perfectly imperfect with a bloody side and let me tell you: you’ll love it, crave it, and devour it.

I’m going to be honest and say that I haven’t read a lot of this author’s books but based on what I’ve read so far, she’s quickly becoming one of my must read authors. This book came with a warning and you need to listen to the author when she says that it gets dark and gritty. This is what we crave in a dark romance and we embrace the gritty, enjoy the sick, and relish in the chaos because we secretly love it!!

If you haven’t read this duet yet, get yourself a nice glass of wine and enjoy the crazy!!
