Or is there?
– If you like sparkly unicorns and hearts,
Royal Blood IS NOT for you.
– If you like dark twisty anti-heroes and
heart stopping roller coasters, Royal Blood IS for you.
– If you like teddy bears and kittens with
whiskers, Royal Blood IS NOT for you.
– If you like unapologetic alpha males
that drip sex and talk dirty, Royal Blood IS for you.
You have been warned.
Both X and Mercy try to fight their attraction, but once it becomes too much they give in thinking that one night will take the edge off. However, this is only the beginning of their time together. X is working on a hit. One that he is having to hunt down, so when his employer sees him sniffing around Mercy too much he decides to send a message. Leaving Mercy realizing she’s walked out of a dangerous situation right into another one. And Mercy, is doing things to X, things he doesn’t exactly understand, and he fights them as much as possible but in the end, Mercy may be the only one on his side after all.
I loved this freaking book. It wasn’t overly long, so it was pretty easy to fit in between longer reads. But what really drags you in is the intensity of X. You almost want to hug him at certain times, but are actually too afraid to get that close, lol. He has sooo many struggles once he meets Mercy. He’s sort of just lived his life doing what he knows and not letting anyone get close. But she seems to unlock him, and sends him spiraling. And Mercy, well she has her own set of problems. She’s in hiding, she just didn’t know that who she was hiding from was so close. And the danger she was running from was nothing compared to what she gets into.
The book was dark, and like I said really intense. At times you just want to hide under the covers. At every single turn it seems to only escalate and you can’t seem to put it down because you HAVE TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS. Both X and Mercy get POV, and I have to say I loved Mercy. She was sassy, and extremely brave, but I absolutely LOVED getting into X’s head and actually seeing no matter how ruthless he acted in his head he actually had struggles and other feeling than he showed.
I CAN NOT WAIT UNTIL BOOK 2!!!!
