4 Unexpected Crowns
Tarnished Empire was completely unexpected. To be honest, I don’t read Ava’s blurbs. I just read the book, and with a cover like that I wasn’t even I tempted to read the blurb. I knew the world from Corrupt Kingdom (both TE and CK are standalones), the cover was gorgeous, and I enjoy her stories, so I didn’t care to read the blurb.
I think this had an influence on my perception of the story. I expected more enemies to lovers, more violence and angst, more of the back and forth. I got a great story of survival. I really enjoyed seeing these two come together and attempt to fight their attraction for each other. I overall enjoyed the characters. If the ending would have been punched up a bit, pulled us back to the world of arms dealers and mafia business, I would have been in love with this.
I will say that Ava threw a twist in there that I had an inkling about but it made the story so much better.
Overall, this isn’t my favorite Ava book, but it is good. It has solid writing, an alpha hero you’ll love and a feisty heroine you’ll enjoy. The chemistry between them is fantastic, and the story line is one that is unexpected and not a typical romance plot line today.
