Winter is a smart clever and smart-mouthed and I loved her in this book. She has had a tough background but not as tough as Razvan's childhood. This is where the dark part of the book comes in and London Miller does an really good balancing act of enough detail/darkness to add depth and feeling to the story without making the book too bleak and grim. The book is written from dual POV's, this helped me get to know and really like both Winter and Razvan, as well as adding extra depth and contrast to the story.
The writing is excellent, it flows well and is easy to read whilst the dialogue feels natural. The pace of the book was good and kept me turning pages, I just didn't want to put the book down. The characters are detailed and believable. The chemistry between Razvan and Winter was steaming hot and I felt their connection.
I will be reading the rest of this series as soon as it becomes available, and am hoping to catch up on the Den of Mercenaries characters who appeared in this book too.
“Death was a needy mistress—it stalked them constantly.”
London Miller is an author I found through her collaborations with Bethany-Kris and ever since I have been frantically trying to catch up on her whole back catalogue…and I’m nearly there. I love my mafia books and while this is a spin off series about mercenaries and hackers, this started in the genre I love. Mercenaries and hackers though…I have come to love even more. Crooks & Kings was the first book in this series and gave us our first introduction to these characters. Razvan was fondly knows as Tacut, the silent one, and he has intrigued me from the very beginning. This was a book I couldn’t wait to start and then never wanted to end.
London Millers writing has that effortless feel, her stories simply spill from the pages drawing you into her worlds and never letting you go until the final word is read. Her character connection is on point and the emotion in this book was one thing that totally shocked me simply because I wasn’t expecting. I will admit, tears were spilled, I am an extremely emotional person and London Miller totally engulfed me in all those feels as pasts and presents collide.
“But now, things were different. They weren’t friends—acquaintances, at best. God help them all.”
There is some overlap in this book to Crooks & Kings and while it felt familiar it wasn’t distracting at all given that they were told from a different perspective, but I could see why the author went there to bring Razvan and Winter’s story to fruition. As ever this book is full of action, from beginning to end and a plot that was thoroughly engaging as well as entertaining. Off the charts chemistry that has bubbling since the previous book, age gap…which I love, smoking hot sex scenes and a man that while silent in speech certainly makes himself heard in every way, shape and form. In summary…this book was simply delicious and ticked all my boxes.
Both lead characters were adorable in every single way. Razvan, while big, hulking and extremely deadly showed a totally different side to him when it came to Winter. Over protective, hopelessly devoted and while he may be silent, he wore his heart on his sleeve, through his eyes and through his actions…all the places that matter. Winter may be eighteen but she had to grow up quick, she is as tough as nails, has no filter, but is infectious with it. Hacking her craft and one that she excels at and though she be but little she is fierce.
“He might not have thought love at first sight existed before, but she had his undivided attention.”
With a fantastic cast of secondary characters there was one in particular that definitely left his mark…Syn. Being a Brit, I am always intrigued when British characters are introduced and when his part to play in this story came out I was desperate for his book. After messaging the author I am pleased to say that this is on the horizon…yay!!! Believe me, once you read this book you will want it too. Once again, London Miller delivered and I cannot wait for the next one. Nicu and Vali are up next and these twins “share” so I am seeing a delicious MFM in my very near future.
“I’ll love you most in this world, always.”
Winter Banes at age 18 wasn't an average hacker let alone teenager, since becoming some sort of an asset to the kingmaker she'd become a part of the Den without actually being there , like the King makers every recruitment Winter also came with a past , she to was saved from something unspeakable but the way she was brought was unconventional. She was the Den's baby not only were they protective of her but she was a freelancer with a purpose after one particular job turns her life 360 she comes face to face with her present and her past. London broke her , New York bewitched her and the kingmaker owned her.
Răzvan Petri aka Tăcut was the oldest among the wild bunch at 32 not only was he a trained assassin but once a part of the lotus society he was a weapon a weapon that didn't make a sound and not by his choice, just like the other boys in the wild bunch Tăcut just didn't share a brotherhood with them but also a nightmare , the one the made Fang, Thantos, Invictus and himself what they were today deadly , dark and dangerous but what he wasn't ready for was to be captivated by the silver haired hacker that pulled him in with every look, he wasn't used to love but he was an all in type of guy even if that meant the one he loved caused a chaos like none other. She was the sound to his Silence, the high to his low.
One by one each of the king makers players were falling into place but was this too part of a plan, where the stakes higher now that each one of them was finding their other half only to be taken away.
She wanted him but one mistake made her only fall harder and he never felt like this there was no way he would stop.
I have to admit I love where this series is headed for those of you who don't know there are two separate series that tie into the kingmakers actual story , one is the wild bunch *standalone each book* and the others are the den series which I will link below. No you don't have to read the Den books to read the wild bunch it's better if you do cause you'll get hints on why the kingmaker does what he does but other then that if you pick up either one of the series make sure you start with book one because major spoilers if you skip.
I had a lot of expectations from this book because Tăcut was this silent brooding type of guy that was mysterious on soo many levels that I couldn't wait to read and Winter was the perfect for him but there were somethings that I thought would happen and didn't like you know when H/H are keeping a secret that could possibly ruin them let's just say Winters secret overpowered Răz which is great and all but I wanted some umpf if that makes sense. Plus points my lovely Kit makes a cameo and he's swoon worthy as ever. Also it was adorable watching the Den get all protective about Winter while Raz's boys would protect him till his last breath they were the all in type of bunch.
Overall not my absolute favourite out of the series but a must read also Saints & Thieves 🙌 M/F/M I can't wait for that book.
** I volunteered to read an early copy of this book**
