Plot Summary :

Adrian and Lia are back!!! I won't say anything about what happened in this book at the risk of giving away any spoilers but holy shit, no one is prepared for this book. Seriously, no kidding, it's absolutely Marvelous.

Overall Opinion :

Ohh God , the amount of digging I have done for this series so that I could figure out what the hell is going on, I could solve real life mysteries by now. You thought that the first book was a mess???!!! Haha babe, you have literally no idea what is coming your way. No other series has consumed me this much!! I completed this book about 2 days ago but I needed some time to actually digest, what did I just read?!!!!

Also, you guys thought that Jonathan was kinky?? I will give you some hints here for you to decide who is the new king now -

Are you going to be a good slut or a good girl, Lia?”

His voice lowers as he whispers near my ear, “Now, count.”

These tears are only mine, aren’t they, Lenochka?” “Yes…” “And they always will be.” “Yes…”

It's an utter mindfuck. By the starting you'll be like, am I reading the same series as before?! By somewhere in the middle you'll be like - I finally have some answers and by the end those 'answers' will be in the flush and you'll be back to square one. Confused as fuck that is. Also, the cliffhanger in this book? I won't say anything but pray for your well being when you encounter that ending.

Rina said that we'll be needing her 'all the best' to get through this book but nahhhh, this time you're gonna need shit load of prayers to get through this book. To actually accept that what you read just happened and still, no matter what you do, the ending will leave you absolutely dumbfounded.

It’d be wise to not provoke me. I dislike it and I’ll make sure you dislike it, too.”

From the moment I finished this book, the only thing on my mind has been I NEED THE NEXT BOOK RIGHT NOW!!!! I kid you not, I even tried meditation to get my mind off it, but damn. I am totally gone for this series. I absolutely loved Royal Elite. Those characters are my babies, but ADRIAN?! I think the Deception trilogy just became my Top favorite read by rina! Even above the ‘Royal elite’ series that is!

The storyline is absolutely phenomenal. Rina will give you crumbs of hints of what is happening and by the time you think you have it all figured out, she will pull the rug from beneath your feet again. So yeah, my blessings are with you when you read this book, because YOU WILL NEED THEM!!!!
