Book Review: Kings Of Eden by Mila Young and Harper A Brooks


Book Description

I'll never fall to my knees... even if that's exactly where they want me.

My life’s never exactly been the easiest. Or the most godly. I’ve danced for powerful men. Deadly men. And when one wants to take things too far, I barely escape with my life. What I didn’t know was that someone else was watching me from the shadows.

Someone deadlier… Someone scarier.

Now the Kings of Eden are after me.

They say I have something they want, and because of it, they’ve made me their captive.

Now, I’m swept up into their deadly world of gang wars and destructive magic. Dracon, Cassius, Knox - they’re criminals, murderers, monsters… But I can’t resist.

The chaotic power inside me craves the chaos they give.

But even with so much at stake, losing my heart scares me the most.

18+ Romance. Kings of Eden is a full length, paranormal romance with enemies to lovers themes, featuring three psychotic, tormented alphaholes and a sassy heroine. Contains some darker themes and panty-melting steam and is a story where the heroine will end up with more than one love interest.

My Review

Eve works as a dancer in a club. A mob boss takes a liking to her and she can't say no when he wants to take her out. She thinks it'll just be a date but he pushes for more and isn't going to take no for an answer. She's no pushover though and fights back and runs, which lands her in hot water with the mob bosses people who are out to get her. 

Knox is a King of Eden, he is also Death. Like in the 4 horseman of the apocalypse, Death. He's in a warehouse looking for his blade when he spots Eve who has been kidnapped and is fighting off the mob bosses people. When Knox spots Eve handle his blade when no one else should be able to handle it without dying, he decides that she must be possessed with his dead brother's spirit and he kidnaps her, tortures her trying to get her to confess that she's possessed. When the other two Kings in the house see her, they try to convince Knox that she's not possessed but that she has to have some other kind of magic that allowed her to wield his blade without dying. 

There was so much drama, fighting, danger and insane romance in this book that made it exciting. The fact that these three guys are crazier than all get out made it interesting to read. Plus when Eve starts having feelings for all three of them for different reasons and it looks like they are reciprocating those feelings, things start to get a lot more romance than blood and gore, which made the story fun. 

There's a lot more to Eve than we first think but this book ended on a cliffhanger which I really hated. There was so much left open and unfinished that it left me feeling like I only read part of the book and it ended abruptly. It had so much potential but it didn't feel like an entire book. So I doubt I'll read anymore of this series. 

I give this book 2 out of 5 stars.
