Some would say I have a privileged life. Daughter of the current President of the United States, wealthy, famous, and all things that some girls wish they had.
Only I’d dream of having a simple life. A life where I wasn’t marrying the scariest man I have ever met. Well, I thought I had just met him, but it turns out, there’s so much I don’t know about myself. That’s all thanks to a past so twisted, so warped, that no amount of money, or presidential status could wipe it clean.
I’m the rebel child. Or as some may see it, the disappointment. I’ve never cared about expensive wedding gowns, or how much someone paid for a tailored suit. I don’t care if your wedding dress is from Walmart, or if it’s from some fancy, upscale designer line.
So why am I marrying the devil dressed in a thousand-dollar
I’m about to find out how I got here. To marrying one of the most powerful men in the country. The road to finding out, though, is paved with darkness, painted with the blood of innocents, and it leads my ass straight to hell. Only this hell is a multi-million-dollar penthouse suite in New York City where Bryant Saint Royal, sits on his throne.
Rating: 3.5 Groupie Stars
So for the first time ever, I’m not quite sure how to review a book by Amo Jones. I am normally such a fan of her novels that I don’t even read the synopsis/blurb. I just jump right in and relish in the dark twisty places that she takes me. That being said, I kind of struggled with Crowned by Hate. I had a difficult time connecting with Isa. She came across as impetuous and spoiled, petulant and overall I really just didn’t like her or the not-so-merry band of supporting characters. I had to set the book down a few times until I reached about 50% which is unheard of for a Jones novel.
The further into the book I got, the more interesting the book became but to tell you why I liked it borders on spoilers and I HATE ruining plot twists. And holy M-fn shitake mushrooms is there a twist. (As in: you will sit there for a moment, dumfounded, TWIST) Even though I can’t grace this one with my usual 5 F’d up stars I will say that you really do have to read it…just to see how Amo Jones messes with your mind. I’m interested to see where she goes with this series so I will stay tuned in.
Amo is a full-time writer from New Zealand who loves long romantic walks to the wine cellar. She loves to write like how she lives, hanging on the edge of insanity with a wine glass in one hand and her morals-or lack thereof- in the other.
Those are not my monkeys, I swear….
Oh those hellhounds? Yeah, those are mine.
