Author: Dee Garcia
Genre: Dark Romance/New Adult
Release Date: January 29, 2019
The streets of Miami became my home at a young age, streets that weren’t always very pleasant or forgiving. I hustled hard to get by, refused to seek help. I did plenty of things I’m not proud of either.
But I made it… Now, this is my city.
My merciless streets.
So I don’t know who the hell Roman King thinks he is, storming in here and throwing around demands. He wants my power.
Well, news flash for him…
Over my. Dead. Body.
I’ll wreak havoc on his life far worse than the demons of his past, demons that somehow mesh so well with my own.
He 𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒍 bow down to this Queen.
She bloody warned me, threatened me with war, but those threats hold no power over me.
They don’t faze me.
Summoned to aid this city in ending her era, I’m the leading pawn on the chess board meant to dethrone the Queen.
She’s vicious, ruthless, corrupt—a challenge I fancy a little too much.
So let this vow be heard today…
Miami will burn to the ashes, but in the end, it will rise, reborn from the blood of her empire. The depravity that runs through my veins will consume every tear and relish her cries for mercy.
Lux Mercier 𝒘𝒊𝒍𝒍 kneel at my altar.
The King will reign.
Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
First off, this cover? Wowzers. Freaking epically hot.
Yet again I’m torn. As much as I liked this book, I didn’t like it. I had Volatile Obsession so hyped up in my head and I was disappointed with a lot of it. I was expecting Lux to be a bad ass queen of Miami. Instead I found her to be oblivious. There was so many times I questioned how she even made it to the top. Her right hand man didn’t listen to her and plotted her downfall, yet she saw none of this and kept paying him like he was doing a good job. After he royally messed up and did the unforgivable, I thought “well now Lux will show her power”. Instead of killing him she just kept paying him and ignoring him. She was weak. Roman was too. I expected so much more out of these two. What I got were kids trying to play an adult game.
While what I didn’t enjoy tended to overshadow what I loved many times, there was still a good bit I really did enjoy. Roman was hot and delicious and the chemistry between Roman and Lux had me fanning myself from the heat. I really did love these two together. I just wish the rest of their story had been a bit more. I know it sounds like I hated this book, I really didn’t. There is a lot to like, I just didn’t grasp or like Lux’s role as Queen. The back and forth push and pull from Roman and Lux was hot and their romance heated the pages!
