    Okay, we need to talk about this. Because I am literally starting to feel like I read a completely different book from everyone else.I quite liked (but didn't love) the first book; I had some issues but I pushed them to the back of my mind because I was so happy to have both a M/M romance in fantasy AND for it to be slow burn. But I just... can't anymore. I don't understand. It has a 4.62 average rating. All my friends seem to love it (5 stars ki...

    Third read: July 27th, 2015 A kingdom, or this. Oh god, I'm such a pathetic mess. I grew so attached to Damen & Laurent that it hurts and maybe you find it stupid to feel so helplessly bewitched but this is the best and most perfect, in all its flaws, love story I've ever read. To get what you want, you have to know exactly how much you are willing to give up. These are not my two favorite quotes, but they're powerful if you're able to catch the...

    I am not going to review this book. Because I cannot review this book. Because there are no words for this book, other than these: This is my new favorite book of all time. Nothing else even comes close.Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Instagram | Pinterest

    As the 'Captive Prince' series progresses, I find myself completely lost in the story of Damen and Laurent. Talk about a slow-burn, I have been dying for something to happen between these two. The anticipation was absolutely killing me.While the first book primarily focused on the hedonistic indulgences and cruelty of Laurent's court, this second book shows more of the inner workings. Many of the pieces are beginning to fall into place. There is ...

    OH MY GOD this is definitely turning out to be a much better series than the first half of book one makes it seem.I knew going into this that it was everyone's favorite in the series and I CAN SEE WHY!!!! I just love books that explore angsty relationships with slow-burning romance and I KNEEWWWW that laurent had a deeper layer that we didn't get to see in book one. These two characters are just developed so exquisitely that I could not put this ...

    ”Never had he wanted something this badly, and held it in his hands knowing that tomorrow it would be gone, traded for the high cliffs of Ios, and the uncertain future across the border, the chance to stand before his brother, to ask him for all the answers that no longer seemed so important. A kingdom, or this.”Can I just say how much I love this book?!I love, love, love, love, love, love and adore it to bits and pieces!!! XDPrince’s G...

    reck-uh-lus be-hay-vyuh.dunno why laurent makes me think of zayn malik. maybe it's the way malik is so desperate to appear a man that his first solo video after 1D is of him lavishly acting out a sexual fantasy with various women, including the one below, while wearing the scruffiest of beards.as if that could ever truly disguise his elfin, boyish, swoopy-haired beauty.but they always try, don't they, pretty boys. they grow unfortunate mustaches ...

    4.5 Stars.Delicious.....What can I say that hasn't already been said...But I will echo a lot of people and say,so far,this is definitely the best book.Damen and Laurent are two of the most sensual characters I've read about.....this isn't dirty sex at all.Right so this book definitely had a different feel about it.There isn't the hedonistic vibe so much.It's a lot different from book one but in a good way.M/M is my absolute fav thing and if someo...

    #1 Captive Prince ★★★★★#2 Prince's Gambit ★★★★★#3 King's Rising ★★★★★ “To get what you want, you have to know exactly how much you are willing to give up.” I was pleasantly surprised by the first book in this trilogy, but that was nothing compared to how much I loved the second installment. Everything that I enjoyed in Captive Prince was magnified in Prince's Gambit, plus the character development was everything ...

    Muthaf’ing Brilliant.Captive Prince is (so far) 2 books, 30 chapters, of the most intense foreplay, the most brilliant war strategy, the most dysfunctional family…with one of the most satisfying, mind-blowing, WTF’ing endings/cliffhangers…I loved Volume 2. Yes, it got sloggy at times with some of the war bits…or that’s just me admitting that I was confused, and sometimes lost…”Wait, who’s betraying who now?” But, the relations...

    “To get what you want, you have to know exactly how much you are willing to give up.”This was even better than Captive Prince. Sudden plot twists, excellent scheming and unbearable tension made this book worth their 5 stars.I'm honestly impressed. I've read a review about this book before starting it, and it said this was all about cock and more cock. So that's what I exepcted, sex scene after sex scene. But C. S. Pacat wrote an extremely wel...

    Actual Rating: 1.5 StarsBuddy read this with the fabulous Kainat, except she abandoned me in favor of more interesting books which I totally don't even blame her for!See, in my review of Captive Prince I may have said I would not touch the second installment in this series with a ten foot pole? Well...I lied. Why, you say, do we keep reading books that we expect to hate? Well. It's because... I'm a fan of well-informed hatred. PLUS, this series h...

    Reread: 10th June 2018So much raw emotions and honesty. It was like using a magnifying glass and analyzing the two very hearts and souls of these two imperfectly perfect couple. *happy sigh* 😌 Laurent and Damianos will always have a place in my heart. 😍Original review: Revised editionI don't want this to end .. I really don't. 😭 And I'm quite sad that I've finished book two and now there's only one book left in this trilogy. These books ...

    JUST MAGNIFICENT, I’m dead!!.!! I’ve reread this book so many time and every time I love it more and more! How is that possible? Slow burn at its finest! Okay, I LOVED EVERY SINGLE BLOOD FUCKING SECOND OF THIS BOOK, couldn’t be happier with this!!!!!!! “It was like being alone in a pit with a snake: the snake could relax, you could not.” EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS BOOK WAS ON POINT. “Laurent got only two words out before the man simply did...

    “It felt, in all the lies between them, as if this was the only true thing.” Do you remember in my review for Captive Prince where I said this book/series may not be for everyone?Yeah. Scratch that. I take it back. This series needs to be read by EVERY SINGLE PERSON!I don't care if you "don't do M/M."I don't care if you "don't like fantasy."This series is INSANE. And I mean that in the best way possible.It has the MOST INTENSE unbearable se...

    *This* story is what I wanted more of in book 1. The setup in the first story was critical; however, here we finally get to see Damen and Laurent becoming a team. Building a strong, yet still fragile, trust.Plus, the plotting and scheming in the first book didn't hold a candle to the underhanded planning carefully and precisely played out in book 2.I do have to admit that these books continue to frustrate the shit out of my 'romance' heart, as ge...

    2016 rereadI feared that 2016 me would possibly be less impressed with this series the second time around. Little did I know that I'd read until 3 AM to finish this book this last night, which is rare for a reread. It's even better than I remembered. 2012 reviewM/m romance has not only become an addiction, it also opens all these little doors inside my head to different scenario's for my favorite books and films. For example, imagine how exciting...

    Much better than Volume One! I was a bit disappointed when I finished Volume One, but now having finished Volume Two I can see how it was simply a setup for Volume Two. With Laurent and Damen forced to trust each other in order to avoid a war between their two countries, a new sexual tension starts to build between the two of them. As the book progresses it gets to the point where you want to shout at the book, "oh just do it already!"The complex...

    “To get what you want, you have to know exactly how much you are willing to give up.”If there's something rereads taught me over this past few years, it's how much your judgment on a book can change (for the better or worse) after you read it more than once. Prince's Gambit is the actual confimation of this statement, since I loved it the first time I read it, and adored it this time around. I feel like the slow burn was easier to handle in t...
