Deviant King Audio Review
(Content Warnings: this is a dark romance and has many content warnings, I’ve listed them below the rating)
Deviant King was my first read by Rina Kent and it definitely won’t be my last. Normally I don’t read bully romances, but my mood led me here, so I decided to give this a chance. And boy, it did not disappoint.
Rina has an absolute talent for writing a completely engaging story from beginning to end. The characters, the angst, and most of all, the bit of mystery and suspense. It’s a fully loaded story and you’ll be trying to piece things together bit by bit especially when so many pieces of the puzzle are missing.
I had no idea this was a series, so I was a little bummed out that 2 more books would follow this. But they’re all out, so you can bet that I’ll be binging all of those.
Anyway, it’s been a while since I’ve read a dark romance. Aiden is crazy and yes, very much a sociopath. He’s the definition of an anti-hero. PERIOD. He’s possessive and extremely territorial. But it works for Elsa, even though she constantly freezes him out. But the draw between them is sizzling and intense. And it becomes extremely tough for her to deny him.
Elsa intrigued the heck out of me, there’s sooooo much we don’t know about her. It’s like she’s locked up in a cage and a lot of that,I believe, ties in with her forgotten memories. It’s such a mystery throughout the entire story, so that’s one arc I can’t wait to learn more about over the next couple of books. With that aside, I loved her loyalty to her best friend, Kim, she’s sooooo protective of her.
Also, I loved the fact that she didn’t let people walk all over her. I think I would have had a very different opinion of her if she was a doormat.
With this being a dark romance read, there are certain aspects I’d rather skip over, but it wasn’t as much as what I’ve read in other dark romances. But I will say that this read is not for everyone. If you don’t enjoy dark romances and with the bully trope, I wouldn’t read this.
With Deviant King only being the first part of three to Elsa and Aiden’s story, we’re about to learn some more crazy truths. And I’m here for it.
NARRATORS: I’ve been waiting to listen to a duet narration and it was absolutely EVERYTHING. When I first started listening to audiobooks, this was what I expected. I actually prefer this type of narration, plus it feels the most natural. Definitely, a fan of both narrators and can’t wait to listen to more by them.
