My Review – 4 Stars
I struggled a little with trying to describe my feelings about this book. I loved the good times Sebastian and Penny had but hated parts of their journey. I even cried tears of frustration for Penny as well as for both of their pain.
I think the author did a good job of concluding Sebastian and Penny’s story, especially the ending. She gave us court politics, drama, passion, and intrigue. The characters continued to fight their attraction to one another and desire for a normal life. I enjoyed the moments when they were honest about what they wanted from each other and for themselves. It was also wonderful to see how supportive their closest friends and family were.
Where things went a bit off track for me were the moments where Sebastian did things to intentionally hurt Penny in hopes of making their separation easier. I also couldn’t take how hot and cold they both were towards each other. I understood feeling hurt that Penny lied about who she was, but Sebastian lied, too. I could also appreciate needing to both be near each other and wanting to escape, but it was torture watching them interact in this new environment. While the author did a great job of navigating the politics associated with their forbidden relationship, I still got hung up on, like I always do, the fact that the king should be able to be with the person he wants.
What good is a King without his Queen?
I never wanted the crown, but now it’s mine.
Instead of my freedom–instead of her.
But even though she’s not mine to keep, I can’t seem to stay away.
The moment he became king, I knew we were over.
Now I’ve returned home some kind of conquering hero.
If only they all knew that we’d both lost our hearts.
If only I could stay out of the royal bed.
What good is being cocky if you can’t get what you want?

The problem is, he’s also my job.

Then I caught my boyfriend cheating—and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.
I never wanted the throne.
When I left behind my gilded cage of a palace, it all sounded so simple: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don’t have to rule the kingdom like my father expects.
Then I meet my new neighbor, and quickly realize I’ve found the queen of my heart—and bed.
Just one problem, I can’t let her find out who I really am.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
