His enemy. His partner. His whore.
His mind games. Her morals.
The road to hell…
Well, there is no road to hell.
I already live there.
I was forced to partake in a rigged game of seduction, manipulation, and murder.
Mateo Remmington is my formidable opponent.
He makes the devil look like a saint.
He’s a goddamn king.
King of a clandestine empire who sits on a throne covered in innocents’ blood.
I’ve become his obsession.
He’s becoming my deadly addiction.
And if I make one wrong move he’ll end my life.
So we are starting the newest Natalie Bennett series and first off is Queen of Diamonds. This book is a prequel (ish) story that gives us the start of Mateo (the kingpin) and Elena the girl who has been away from Vice City most of her life.
Elena’s parents didn’t want her or her sister to be part of their world. So they shipped them off, but that couldn’t save them. So Elena and her sister are left to raise themselves with their aunt. But when Elena’s sister is murdered she decides it is time to go back to Vice City and see what she can find out.
Mateo is dark, everything he does is to stay on top. He is the King and he wants a Queen. Elena is the person he wants and he will get her any way he can. But what is the game here? Only Mateo seems to know what they are playing and he will win at any cost.
I am so excited to read this series, and what a start to it. But head the trigger warnings, this is not a nice romance. This is a dark and disturbing read and I am sure it will only get more so.
I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.
Natalie Bennett is the creator of erotic stories that always come with a warning label. She writes about depraved alpha a**holes and women that love to hate them. Her books don’t follow any specific tropes, have no set word counts, and tend to deviate from traditional HEA’s.
When she isn’t in front of her computer she’s spending time with her husband and their three little boys.
Natalie is an avid fan of caramel frappes, horror movies, Shameless, and of course, reading.
