Wow!! My mind is completely and utterly blown. So many times I re-read to make sure I wasn't imagining things. Haunting, exciting, toeing the line of right vs. wrong, just magnificently captivating! Heat exudes from the pages, along with mystery and suspense, dying to find out all the secrets hidden within the words. The Author builds the story where you have no idea where it will go, but held prisoner by each and every word, held transfixed to find out the answers. So unique, and different from anything I've ever read, I will not miss any of this series going forward. Giving all the dark, disturbing, taboo, sexy stars on this one!!

The anticipation for this book has been both frustrating and exciting. The only obstacle in my way was time. And in that time, I made it worse for myself by obsessing over it. This author has been someone whose words have spoken to me on an extremely deep level. She knows what to write and how to write about it. Her characters are developed so profoundly you relate to them in all aspects & you forget that they’re exactly that, characters. All her books are some of my most favourite reads of all time and I expected nothing less from this one. While editing errors and organizational incongruities plague some latter chapters, many of the shortcomings of this first edit will likely be alleviated in the final proof.
As a blogger, I feel it is my duty to be honest. And in all honesty, while I absolute loved this book there were certain things that picked at me. After reading this book I was left feeling unsatisfied. Not because of the cliff hanger or the mystery behind the story and the secrets left buried. But because I felt like something (I can’t pinpoint it) was missing. The beginning of this book was a tad bit slow, it was the normal ‘introduction into a new school’ thing, causes a stir and catches the attention of a guy. With a few twists and bad*** comments, it wasn’t until about 40% where things started to pick up. There were a few events in the book that I saw coming before it even happened, and that’s if you pay attention to all the hints. And maybe because I’m just dead inside, I was hoping for it to be a tad bit darker than what it actually was. But to any normal person, this would be sick & twisted enough to send someone to the mental hospital. Despite these things, this does not at all diminish the author’s talent and the effect she indeed intended to have on her readers.
On to a more positive note, despite my own personal discontentment at some aspects of this book, there is also a lot of this book to LOVE. The romance element in this book is, for a lack of a better word; passionate. Not the kind of passion that sparks fires. But the kind that launches missiles. The kind that leaves you feeling filthy in the best way. To walk away from this book on not feel like you’re on the verge of some mental break down, would be rare because this book is dark enough to play with your inner beast. I absolutely LOVE the characters in her book. The Kings are sexy. They like to play games the only way they know how. They make their own rules and take no prisoners. And while they might seem unapproachable and intimidating, dare I say these Kings might have a little compassion in them. I really related to Madison in this book. Even go as far as saying I admired her. She’s someone I look up to. Someone I aspire to be. She’s strong, badass & brave and that mouth will definitely get her in trouble, but ultimately, she’s a girl with feelings. And when all the Kings want to play with her, how can she even think about refusing?
I’m not going to lie, there are elements and aspects in this book that will make you cringe, that will make you feel sick. There are things that will shock you silent and other scenes that’ll leave you wet and panting for more. The boys from the Elite King’s Club aren’t to be taken lightly. Everything they do is orchestrated before it happens. Everything has an ulterior motive. And it makes my head spin because you never know what’s real and what’s a game to them? Is it all a game? And while the plot twists in this book will most likely unhinge you, you’ll definitely fall in love with EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER in this book. I’m not joking. Amo has created characters you can’t even begin to play favourites on. And while this book may focus on two characters, Bishop and Madi, don’t think that the other characters aren’t playing a major part in this book. Everyone is hiding something. Everyone has an ulterior motive. And it’s when all these secrets come out that chaos erupts.
I can’t even begin to express how much I loved this book, despite all those minor flaws that are of my own personal opinion. Amo Jones has changed the game and created extremely high standards for everyone in the book community when it comes to dark romance. Y’all aren’t even ready for this book & I am excited for the complete disorder that will come upon this book community when it releases. It’s already everywhere on social media and the most talked about release & I am not ready for when it actually comes out. But that’s the way the Elite King’s are. They dominate, take what they want, crushing the opposition & expect absolute obedience. So if I were you I’d go and pre-order, one-click, recommend and review this book. It deserves all the recognition it gets and so does Amo Jones. Definitely a MUST READ! Praise to Amo Jones for unleashing the inner demons we all have inside of us with the Elite King’s Club! Can’t wait for the next book!
This is Book One in the Elite Kings Series and it's setting the stage for the entire series so there's a lot of back story involved, but never fear there are still a TON of secrets that are being kept even though we're deluged with an incredible history and secrets that have been kept for more years than we could ever imagine.
This is Madison's story and boy is she a complex young woman. She's thrown into a new town and a new school along with a new family as her father has recently remarried. The reason Madi is living with her father is in and of itself a heartbreaking story. Needless to say, that along with some past events truly shape Madi and who she is today...but this is only scratching surface.
We meet all the key players in Madi's life including her new step-brother and he band of merrymen who refer to themselves as The Elite Kings. The leaders of this group Bishop Hayes becomes a love interest of sorts for Madi and it's unlike any love story I've read! There's so many minute details to each and every scene that it shows the brilliance of the author being able to keep everything straight because there are mysteries upon mysteries that are revealed and discovered on almost every page.
I literally sat with my mouth hanging wide open most of the time that I read this book because it's THAT enthralling and that intense. It's to the point that I didn't think I could read anymore but I was loathe to put it down....I HAD to see what was happening next. And in true Amo Jones fashion we are left with quite the cliffhanger and I think I said out loud...NO YOU DIDN'T!!!!
