5 The King Will Rise Crowns
Monica James has crafted the most devious, the most depraved, the most dangerously addictive dark romance that I have read this year! I was spell-bound from the moment I opened this book and read the first word until the last moment of this story. This is without a doubt my favorite book from Monica to date and I loved every sinister minute of it!!!
Aleksei Popov is a dangerous man he is what many would consider a monster, there’s no two ways about it, that is who he is. He was once the King of the Russian Mafia but due to a fate beyond his control he was unceremoniously decrowned and left with nothing. Left to survive this world with less than zero he has remained in the shadows living on the outside just trying to survive. This man may not be King anymore, but he still has his intellect, determination, and his unending desire and thirst for revenge, with a charisma unlike any other that has saved him on more than one occasion.
Ella is a woman who’s made many wrong choices in life. She’s tried to make a better existence for herself but has trusted too many of the wrong men and was left to try and survive amongst the devil’s in disguise. She awakens a need and hunger in Alek that he thought had long since been extinguished. The pull between them is instant and intense leaving them both struggling with these emotions that they were not prepared for. Ella brings out the dominant need in Alek to own, control and make Ella submit to him and only him. But Ella has a mind of her own and strong sense of self not allowing her to just succumb to the whims of Alek. Their banter and chemistry are off the charts hot with a connection the burns from the pages.

I was feared.
But all of that changed when the impossible happened—I fell in love. Only those feelings weren’t reciprocated, because who could love a monster like me?
My empire crumbled. People died. I went from being a victorious leader to lurking in the shadows, planning revenge on my half-brother who now reigns in my place.
An orphanage is where I find sanctuary, but when she walks into my world and evokes a yearning I thought long dead, my demons are awakened and want what they can’t have—her. Sooner or later, I knew I’d need to feed the darkness inside me.
Mayhem, power, and control course through my veins. I will use them to regain my crown, my throne, and then claim her, despite what solemn vows she might’ve made.
I will break them…and her.
