Iron Crowne by CD Reiss
Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: November 15, 2019
I am a huge fan of enemies to lovers trope and this book gave me top notch E/L content.
Byron is a ruthless businessman who refuses to give up any amount of his power or business. He goes after what he wants and acquires it no matter the cost. I love me a ruthless mofo who you want to hate but he’s so so damn smooth that you end up liking him like crazy.
Honest to God, I actually got a little hot and bothered when him and Olivia were bantering.
Olivia is the kind of woman everyone other woman looks upto and aspires to be. We all want to be proud of who we are and its was really refreshing to see a female character who was 100% into her happiness and needs.
Their chemistry is obviously scorching. I knew they were either going to fall in love or destroy each other in the process. Their whole dynamic was insanely intense and so thrilling to read. I also liked how the story flowed smoothly.
The only thing that hit me wrong was the fact that Byron had 2 employees/ helpers/ servants and CD gave them a name and subtle personalities but they were PoC. The whole white man’s servants thing did not sit right with me and I feel it wasn’t entirely in good taste.
I am really excited for Logan’s book because he’s a Crowne and I am finding them really drool worthy.
