5 Amo Mindf@cked Me Crowns
Amo has a unique and addictive writing style that grabs you and pulls you into her stories holding you utterly captivated until the very last page. And Bryant and Isa’s story are no different, this couple is so unlike anything that I’ve read, they without a doubt have the capability to render you speechless and desperate for more.
Bryant Royal is calculated, smart, coherent. He’s one hundred steps ahead of the human race and about three steps behind God.
This book takes you on a whirlwind of WTF moments and so many twists and turns you legit have no idea what’s going to happen. I blew thru this book in one sitting and the whole time I was reading it I kept thinking Amo’s up to something. And then Bam the Cliffy at the end and I was like Aha I knew it!!! (Insert me jumping off the couch Chandler Bing style). Now having said that there’s far too much happening in the story to really write a review without giving something away, and you NEED to read this completely blind. So, I’m going to keep most of this super basic.
“Hate is an easy feeling for me to embrace. I feed off of it. Better I feel something, even if it’s hate.”
In true Amo style Isa is a badass with a smart mouth and a devious side. I loved her and Bryant’s dynamic they seemed to balance each other in a dark twisted way. And Bryant is 10 kinds of sexy, this man is rich and possessive but slips in those sweet nothings that keep you wanting more. All in all, these two were PERFECTION. I loved watching as their dynamic slowly progressed into so much more than they started.
I’m getting rather annoyed at how something nudges in my chest every time he looks at me with his hungry predatory glare.
This book left my mind reeling and my heart in my throat. I’m so glad I did not read this until now because I would have died waiting this long for book 2 to come out. There’s just so many unanswered questions that only the Queen herself can answer. I’m anxiously waiting for the next installment, I have a feeling Amo is going to turn us all inside out with it, and I for one am here for it ALL!!!
Some would say I have a privileged life. Daughter of the current President of the United States, wealthy, famous, and all things that some girls wish they had.
Only I’d dream of having a simple life. A life where I wasn’t marrying the scariest man I have ever met. Well, I thought I had just met him, but it turns out, there’s so much I don’t know about myself. That’s all thanks to a past so twisted, so warped, that no amount of money, or presidential status could wipe it clean.
I’m the rebel child. Or as some may see it, the disappointment. I’ve never cared about expensive wedding gowns, or how much someone paid for a tailored suit. I don’t care if your wedding dress is from Walmart, or if it’s from some fancy, upscale designer line.
So why am I marrying the devil dressed in a thousand-dollar suit?
I’m about to find out how I got here. To marrying one of the most powerful men in the country. The road to finding out, though, is paved with darkness, painted with the blood of innocents, and it leads my ass straight to hell. Only this hell is a multi-million-dollar penthouse suite in New York City where Bryant Saint Royal, sits on his throne.
Little bit more about this book…
I’ve had this plot turning inside my brain for a while now. I’ve tossed and turned with it, fought with it, tried to modify it to be more acceptable, and in short, I’ve tried to p*ssy foot around my brutal little demons who have been whispering this story for over a year. Truth is, I couldn’t tame it. I couldn’t tame them, and I had to write it exactly as I saw it. Exactly as I have lived it, breathed it, relished in it inside of my head. See, my stories aren’t voices, they’re real, and they own every single inch of my being as I write them. Back to this book, yes, it was originally supposed to be a standalone, but I sent it to TWO betas who BOTH kicked up a sh*t at me about how the story was just…untold. So, I went back in, dove head first back into the murky depths of hell to revise, re-edit and twist the plot even further so this could be told in THREE parts. Book 1 is a full length standalone, but books 2 & 3 will be A LOT longer. You won’t be able to figure out this plot. Calling it twisted is an understatement, and It will f you in more ways than you’ve ever been f-ed before.
Anyway, I would say goodluck, but luck ain’t got shit, and god ain’t gon’ save you.
