Abby’s 5 huge blushes
The King is the follow-up book to The Prince. That was a 5 for me too and you can read my review here! The King released the other day and I was quick to get my one-click finger on. I started this last night and stayed up well into the evening, afraid that my husband would be getting up for work soon.
This book reminded me of my favorite thing in a book. It’s the kind of thing that will usually make something a 5 star for me and that’s Sacrifice. Brighton and The King have so much to endure. It seems it never ends and that it’s the ultimate curse of the crown.
This tugged at my heartstrings. I cried and it wasn’t that stray tear. Nope, it was lip trembling tears, where I had to suck in oxygen.
The chemistry in this was as great if not better than I remembered it in The Prince.
We’re surrounded by characters from Wicked, which I’ve read and loved as well, but not quite as much as I love this.
Tink!!! He’s back, but not for the entire story. I love me some Tink! He brings a levity to the book that is refreshing.
Jennifer L. Armentrout has this pop culture reference thing she does in her books and I love it so hard.
The only thing I’m not truly thrilled with about this book is that the next installment, The Queen, will not release until July 2020. That is a freaking long wait. Still, I look forward to it!
