4.75 rounded up to 5 Stars
Cressida has always been the good girl. She was sheltered growing up and eventually groomed to marry the best friend of her father, William Irons. Cressida always wanted to branch out and experience life but there was always someone putting her down for it. William was much like Cressida’s parents. He was old fashioned and very conservative/possessive. William eventually “allows” Cressida to become a teacher. Mainly because it would still allow her to be home in time to have supper on the table when he comes home from work. Well one day Cress sees this guy at the grocery store and basically falls for him right then and there. They spark up a romance after Cress leaves her husband. Unbeknownst to Cress, this new found love was actually one of her students.
King Garro was this swoon worthy character you couldn’t help but fall for. I will go ahead and say for the record that he was 18 and Cress was 26 during the story. Everyone was legal. With that out of the way, King’s father Zeus was part of a motorcycle club called The Fallen. Like most motorcycle clubs, trouble seems to follow them and that leads us on a very thrilling ride.
This story was so hard to put down. I loved reading it and would pick it up whenever I had a spare moment. The only reason this wasn’t a 5 star to start off with is because of Cress. That woman drove me nuts at times. Sure she’s very naive and sheltered but she was beyond wishy washy. She would say she wanted King and whatever that entailed but the moment things got rough, she was throwing in the towel. I also hated how when she got upset, she would throw King’s age in his face. I felt that was a low blow.
But other than that, I loved this book. I wish I could follow each MC member as they find their Queen (the MC’s nickname for Cressida). I am happy to have at least have two more books in this world. I’ll be starting those ASAP.
