MY GOODREADS REVIEW LINK
RATING: 4.5 Stars!
The Mount Trilogy continues with
I’m his entertainment. His toy. Payment on a debt.
I tell myself I hate him, but every time he walks into the room, my body betrays me. How can I want him and fear him in the same moment?
They told me he’d mess with my head. Make it go to war with my body.
But I didn’t realize it would be complete anarchy.
I should’ve known better. When Mount’s involved, there are no rules.
I will not surrender. I will not show weakness. I’ll stand my ground and make it out of this bargain with my heart and soul intact.
But he has other plans . . .
Defiant Queen is the second book of the Mount Trilogy. Mount and Keira's story concludes in Sinful Empire.
REVIEWER'S NOTE: I received an eARC from the author in exchange for an honest review.
4.5 “My soul is black.” Stars!
Defiant Queen picks up right where Ruthless King left off after that gripping cliffhanger and progresses nicely in this second installment. This time we get a little more intrigue, a lot more steam and a ton more Mount! That man had my mouth watering. He’s just so damn alpha and so outrageously sexy!
The author throws in a little more backstory to Mount and we learn more about the man he truly is, where he came from and how he became the domineering, controlling, absolute in his wrath, ruthless king. And we get to see his vulnerability as he explores his growing feelings for Keira.
Keira owns her sass and doesn’t back down from Mount, which is why I think I love her so much. She gives as good as she gets, even when others would head that seriously intense look he gives when he thinks she’s crossed a line. You can see that she not only stands her ground with Mount, her views and perceptions start to change as she’s immersed a little more in his world. She’s coming into her own. Of course, she’s not as ruthless in her thinking as Mount, but she’s certainly defiant and a temptation Mount can’t resist.
These two were on fire! Their chemistry is off the charts hot and each scene felt intense, intoxicating and I was riveted to the pages. Their agreement isn’t about a debt to be paid anymore. For Mount, no matter what he says, I don’t think it ever was. We see a new side to Mount in this book and though he’s still that mysterious, brooding, cutthroat he was in the first book, he’s softening just enough to make you fall in love with him all over again.
Secrets are revealed, old enemies resurface, new enemies emerge and all the while, Mount and Keira find their connection solidifying at every turn. Mount really tries to find a way to connect with Keira as he wades through uncharted territory and feelings he’s never had for anyone. He steps out of his domineering, take over attitude and really tries to listen to her and take into account the woman she is and the things she needs instead of being a payment for a debt.
Gah! Mount just stole the show for me in this installment. Getting inside his head was a real treat.
The writing is fantastic! This is my second book by this author, Ruthless King being the first and I’m salivating for more!
And with that heart-stopping cliffy at the end of this book? It's going to be a sweet, sweet torture waiting for the next book!
