Was the purpose of this book to ruin me? If so then it more than did it’s job.

I knew before going in that this book is going to hit me hard and I might not come out the same. As a PoC, this book affected me a lot. My heart hurt to read the injustices being carried out against the Native Americans.

Lennix is the love of my life and as God is my witness, I will see her get her HEA. NO MATTER WHAT! She has been through so much in her life but that has not dimmed her light. She knows what she wants and she fights for it with her her might. I adore her through through.

Maxim is The Rebel God. He fought for his morals and became the exceptional man that he is. I LOVE a man who fights for what is right and I specially love Maxim because of his morals and principles. WE STAN A WOKE KING! *chef’s kisses*

Lennix and Maxim’s instant connection is the stuff of dreams. I LIVE to read such passionate romances. No one is doing it like Kennedy Ryan. At this point, I am entirely in love with her and don’t know what to do with my abundant feelings. Kennedy Ryan has this amazing ability to make you feel each and every word that she write. Her words are always raw, real and hard – hitting.

That cliffhanger obviously has me in my feelings and I don’t know how to act anymore. Book 2 can’t come soon enough.

5 Stars!

Power. Passion. Betrayal.

Rita Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the epic first installment of the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition.

In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.

My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and will do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

And neither will I.
