The princess isn’t supposed to dethrone the king.


He said he’ll destroy me, and he did.
I might have lost the battle, but the war is far from over.
They say it starts with one move to dethrone the king.
No one mentioned he’ll yank me with him on the way down.


If Steel’s little princess wants a war, then war it is.
There’s only one rule: my rules or none at all.
By all means, show me what you got, sweetheart.

Steel Princess is book two of Royal Elite series and should be read after Deviant King. This is a dark high school bully romance, mature new adult, and contains dubious situations that some readers might find offensive.

This book is part of a trilogy and is NOT standalone.The entire trilogy is available


After devouring the audio for Deviant King, I couldn’t wait to get on with Elsa and Aiden’s story. I did get through this one rather quickly, but it kind of felt like not a whole lot was happening and it was preparing us for the final book. But you’ll get all the angst and steam for days!

The tone is still dark as ever as we dive deeper into Elsa and Aiden’s story. Quite a few of my questions were finally answered, but then a billion more popped up. I’m just sitting here waiting for Elsa to remember more of what happened in her past.

I will say that we get in a bit of a routine with Elsa and Aiden throughout most of the book and it wasn’t progressing as much as I hoped. But I was was eager to finish this one and start the concluding book.

Deviant King wasn’t everything that I’d hope it would, but I’m still hooked and can’t wait to read Twisted Kingdom.

Deviant King is a new adult dark romance and absolutely NOT for everyone.
