Another story I have no idea where to go with my review.
This is my first Natalie Bennett book, so I really had no idea what I was getting into. I read the blurb and thought I had an idea of what I was getting into. Nope.
This story is raw, nasty, gritty, messed up and so freaking awesome that I was upset when it was over. Savages is a story, unlike anything I have read. This is not a story about two people falling in love and having a hard time. Hell, I don’t think anyone in this story has any idea what the word love is. These two characters Romero and Calista are so f*cked up that you have to adore them. I will admit at some point this story scared me a little, but then brought me around again. I can not wait to see where these characters go from here.
The author does say there are triggers. And man is there! Don’t read this story without an open mind.
Series: Old Money Roulette Trilogy by Natalie Bennett Includes- Queen of Diamonds 📖Review📖, King of Hearts (Coming Soon), & Ace of Spades (Coming Soon)
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.
