Black Thorns; Thorns Duet #2 
(#2 within a duet)

Publication Date: July 8, 2021

Genre/Tropes: Duet/New Adult/Dark Romance

Author: Rina Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



Rina Kent pushes dark boundaries I didn’t know I wanted or liked, but she makes me throw out my grabby hands and BEG for more. Black Thorns blew away everything I anticipated and left me once again I craving more of her dark words.

Black Thorns picks up right where we left Sebastian and Naomi. The first quarter of this book is brutally agonizing and I was gripping onto the edge of my seat while trying to turn pages fast enough to find out what happens.

Everything in this book is a blood pumping whirlwind! Once I started I couldn’t read it fast enough.

The first part of the duet was so steamy and taboo, well…you haven’t seen anything yet. Sebastian and Naomi are off the charts in this second half. Their story isn’t easy or pretty, but know that it is always consensual. Their darkness has always called to one another and at every point in their lives, that never waivers. Sebastian and Naomi are meant to be, no matter who or what stands in the way. The Beast will always get his Prey.

Also, keep a close eye on other players who appear in this book as Rina is fantastic at her layers upon layers in storytelling and keep in mind that she does mention triggers, if Rina’s books aren’t for you then don’t swim in the deep end.


A lie turned into a nightmare.

She broke my heart.
Broke me.
Broke us.
Only one thing could mend the gaping wound she left behind.
All mine for the taking.
All mine for owning.
All mine.
