We’re on tour with Reckoning by Riley Ashby!
Once upon a time, there was a princess.
I wasn’t a real princess, but my parents treated me like one. And I always dreamed that one day, I would meet my prince. Not to sweep me off her feet and take me away, but to complement the life I already loved.
But before that prince could arrive, a villain showed up instead.
Meyer Schaf, one of the richest — and cruest — men in the country. He swept me off my feet, not with love but with threats.
He took me away, not to a castle but to a prison.
And he destroyed the wonderful life I built for myself.
As time passed, I came to see that Meyer had fears of his own. There was another devil much worse than him. Someone who would go to endless lengths to bring torment to both of us.
Somewhere along the line, Meyer started to show that he might not be brute I thought he was.
But when the time came to hold on, he let me go.
Heather’s 🎩🎩🎩 review:
This review is going to be short and straight to the point.
I am at a loss for words right now. This book has a great storyline, but fell a little short for me. I know that sounds kinda contradictory, but the storyline is very strong. We get a headstrong heroine that refuses to bow down to anyone. Our hero is a little weak in my eyes, but I have a feeling he is going to redeem himself. Our villain is exactly that. A huge douche who needs to be taken out in the most painful way. I am not gonna lie there were a few times I really really wanted to throw my kindle. I’m not even sure how to word my review. There were things I liked about this book, as well as a few I did not like. I really wanted to shake Meyer a few times. I don’t want to give anything away, but know I understand that his life has been hard. I adore Maddie’s character. She has spunk and refuses to let anyone beat her down. I feel she is the link that will cause Meyer to see the light.
