Review:

Hit the ground running – what a crazy, intense, mind-blowing story!

This dark book may not be for everyone, but if revenge, violence, and super angsty romance fits your wheelhouse, then these Kings will quench your thirst.

Taken from her home as a child, Freya, is kidnapped and locked away in the Remington’s home. With questions and mystery surrounding why she’s not only taken, but locked away, she’s kept like a trophy or a prize won from war, but an unwanted prize. Freya is not allowed to interact with the family and yet the Remington twins hold a fascination to her, considering they are just a few years older than her. She doesn’t understand why Noah and Remi are allowed to roam the house and have friends, but she is a prisoner under the same roof.

There were so many questions for so many chapters, that kept me up late reading, because I just had to know…this book was intense!! Can you tell by my run on sentence and punctuation!!

From the beginning of Freya’s interactions with Noah and Remi there is a distinct difference between the two brothers. Noah absolutely loathes Freya upon sight and Remi is fascinated with her. This doesn’t change as they grow and mature, but those emotions just shift. Hate is never far from love and fascination is just a step away from obsession. The question then becomes, can Freya love them back when she ultimately learns the truth of why she was taken.

These boys work for their father and he’s part of the underworld. What they do isn’t sunshine and rainbows, but it is their life.

Kings of Blood and Money is filled with twists and turns with lots of darkness thrown in to boot. It’s a good addition to the Underworld Kings series.

Synopsis:

This is not a story of love.
This is a story of revenge and the bond created from it.

Noah

The Gallo family took everything from us.
They killed my mother and sister, leaving me and my twin brother fighting for our lives.
My father was supposed to be there that night. He should have been there. Should have protected them—us.
When you strip a man of all he cares about, you’re left with a soulless entity seething with primal rage. He promised to turn Gallo’s bloodline to dust to get his retribution.
And he did.
All but one.

Freya

I was seven years old when I was taken in the night. I don’t remember much of life before that.
All I know now is the glaring eyes of a boy who hates me, and the comfort I find in the boy whose face mirrors his.
I’m not part of this family, but they’re all I have familiar as one.
To hate is easy.
And I do hate them.
But to love even in hate is what hardens you, strengthens you, gives you reason.
The truth is I shouldn’t love them, that all these years are leading somewhere I won’t want to go.
But I do…
Love them.
I love them both.
The only question left now is, do they love me?

Part of a multi-author series of standalone books filled with mafia families waging war, danger and violence, arranged and forced marriages, angst, love, and everything
in-between, The Underworld Kings Series
