Empire of Hate; Empire #3 
(An interconnected standalone)

Publication Date: March 3, 3022

Genre/Tropes: Second Chance/Enemies-to Lovers/Workplace Romance

Author: Rina Kent

Review Rating: 5 Gold Stars



This book is for everyone who needs a second chance.

Heartbreaking, heartfelt, healing…wow, that’s several H words, but nonetheless true. Empire of Hate emcompasses years of hurt and misunderstandings based in a world that is set up of false smiles and backstabbing promises.

This is a book where both Daniel and Nicole have been wrong and been wronged and neither are in a tower waiting to be rescued like a damsel in distress nor are they anyones Prince Charming swooping in to the rescue.

This book is raw and open and, what I feel, is probably one of the most touching stories that Rina has written to date. I know that that statement may seem odd with hate being in the title, but after riding the emotional rollercoaster with these two I think it will all make sense when you finish the book as well.

While I continue my gushing H word review, cause it appears I’m not done, Empire of Hate is also humbling. It carries a plot that reminds us we are human and to always remember there are two sides to every story.


My boss. My enemy.

I escaped my life.
Leaving everything behind wasn’t easy, but I did it.
I turned the page and flew over the ocean.
This is my new beginning.
My new chapter.
My new book.
Or so I hoped before I met my new boss.
Daniel Sterling.
Rich as sin, illegally attractive, and the face of every magazine cover.
Oh, and the reason why I escaped in the first place.
I made his high school life hell.
He won’t stop until he gives me a taste of my own medicine.

Empire of Hate is a complete STANDALONE. No book should be read prior to this.
Note: This is NOT a dark romance.
