REVIEW: HOLY COW!!! Heavy Crown by Wendy Million is an unputdownable book. That’s the truth! Once I picked up this book, I couldn’t put it down. Everytime my husband looked at me my nose was buried deep in my tablet. I could hardly look up to answer him. What’s for dinner? Duh, I don’t know. Do you want to go pick something up? No, you go. Do you mind if I go fishing? Nope. Are you ready for bed? Only if you’ll let me finish this book before the light goes out. Honestly, I was hooked.
Heavy Crown is the next book in the Bellerive Royals series. I have really enjoyed all of the books in this series but, Heavy Crown has to be the best one yet. Alexander Summerset is the next in line to become King of Bellerive. In the past books, I didn’t care much for him. He was an all work and no play sort of guy. He did try to take his brothers girl away from him when they ran into a bump in the road but for the most part he did not believe in love. He redeemed himself in this book.
I love the characters that Wendy has carved out for us in these books. As I look back, there are a lot of them that I did not like up front. As each book pulls out one of the Royals to highlight, we get to know them more up front and personal. You realize what drives them and what makes them who they are. I truly loved the Donaghey Series. It was so good but, I honestly have to say I love this Bellerive Royals series a little more. I can’t put my finger on it but, I feel like Wendy Million gets better with every book she writes.
Warning! Her books can be scorching HOT!! I like that every once in a while and I admit it is not a steady diet for me. I don’t find the scenes in her books obnoxious. They flow into the story and are not put there just to make them hot. They have a reason. They are a part of the story and have an illustrative purpose for being there. I would still encourage my best friend to read the books. You just can’t go wrong with a good story.
If you have not read any of Wendy Million’s books, jump right in. I suggest reading them in order for the fun they bring but, I think they would do well as stand alones. If you are a big Wendy Million fan, I would make sure you read this book pronto. What are you waiting for? Clear a day of your schedule and enjoy the best read from her yet!
SYNOPSIS: Alexander Summerset, future King of Bellerive, doesn’t believe in love. When a coronation clause has him seeking a wife, an arranged marriage suits him. His criteria is simple. She must be tolerable to him, and she must be good for the country.
Aurora Wilson followed her boyfriend to Bellerive after college and joined his family’s business. When she discovers him cheating on her, she flees their apartment, and the life that’s trapped her.
An unlikely and unexpected meeting stuns them both. For a man who doesn’t believe in love, he’s suddenly only got eyes for her.
There’s only one problem. He can only marry royalty or a native Bellerivian, and she is neither.
