Ruthless Empire (Royal Elite #6) by Rina Kent- book review

joanna-kosinska-kKfVAvdBsAw-unsplash

She’s off limits. He has none.

There’s a girl.
Beautiful. Popular. Fake.
And my obsession.
My fall.
Probably my damnation.
Did that stop me? Do I care? No and no.
There’s a line between right and wrong. Moral and immoral.
And then there’s her.
I cross every limit with blood-coated fingers.
She says she hates me.
I say I hate her too as I trap her, own her.
Make her all mine.

Ruthless Empire is part of Royal Elite Series, but could be read on its own. For better understanding of the world, you might want to read the previous books first. This is a mature new adult and contains situations that some readers can find offensive

Smexy Times?– A lot of it!Yes!

OVERALL – 4/5 STARS

4 stars

Another Rina Kent book with unexpected twist! How does She do it?!My mind was blown…literally(No spoilers of course). This one was the longest book out of the series,but it felt like the shortest…I wanted more. I loved Cole and Silver ,they had such a beautiful love story of hate/love/toxic parents and expectations. Will miss this series a lot!


FAVORITE QUOTES FROM THE BOOK

 

We’re proper people with proper manners and proper secrets.


Congratu-fucking-lations?

I’d never tell Cole this, but I’m glad he’s holding my hand. I feel like demons will jump from the walls and devour us.
Or me, to be more specific. Cole would probably make friends with them.

My chaos.

My damnation

January Favorites (2020 edition)

Photo by freestocks.org on Unsplash

Hello, my darlings! How are you all doing? How did January treat you? I hope it was an amazing month with lots of great events. My January was eventful, had lots of guests (unusually so). We still have 0 snow and it’s super sad. This was the warmest winter I have ever seen, and it makes me very worried about the environment.

Let’s dive into my favorites!

I got this one as a Christmas present from my friend. She always gives me amazing skincare/makeup items as gifts, and this was one of the most amazing ones yet! It does clean my face properly, I love the quality. I will tell a little bit more about this product in a bigger post, because I did get a lot of products from this line.

About the book: Cath is a Simon Snow fan.

Okay, the whole world is a Simon Snow fan...

But for Cath, being a fan is her life—and she’s really good at it. She and her twin sister, Wren, ensconced themselves in the Simon Snow series when they were just kids; it’s what got them through their mother leaving. Reading. Rereading. Hanging out in Simon Snow forums, writing Simon Snow fan fiction, dressing up like the characters for every movie premiere.

Cath’s sister has mostly grown away from fandom, but Cath can’t let go. She doesn’t want to.

Now that they’re going to college, Wren has told Cath she doesn’t want to be roommates. Cath is on her own, completely outside of her comfort zone. She’s got a surly roommate with a charming, always-around boyfriend, a fiction-writing professor who thinks fan fiction is the end of the civilized world, a handsome classmate who only wants to talk about words... And she can’t stop worrying about her dad, who’s loving and fragile and has never really been alone.

For Cath, the question is: Can she do this? Can she make it without Wren holding her hand? Is she ready to start living her own life? Writing her own stories?

And does she even want to move on if it means leaving Simon Snow behind?

Why I got it: FanGirl is one of my favorite books of all times, but I haven’t got a physical copy. That’s why I was happy to see a Latvian copy for a great price. How you can see the Latvian edition has a different cover than the American one, and I don’t really like it. Definitely not a cover buy for me.

Isana Young Active Clear Washcream

Very unexpected this become one of my favourites wash creams ever.  It’s cheap, pretty good cleans the skin from excess oil and has a very good cooling effect.

The Dracula Dossier

by James Reese

About the book ; Author of the New York Times bestseller The Book of Shadows, James Reese returns with a remarkable feat of literary invention. In The Dracula Dossier, Reese combines real historical figures and events—Bram Stoker, Walt Whitman, Jack the Ripper—with glorious speculation in a tour de force of suspense fiction that races non-stop through Victorian London. Bestselling author Michael Connelly raves about The Dracula Dossier, calling it, “a damn good thriller…that had me mesmerized from chapter one.”

Big Miracle

by Tom Rose

About the book ; Now a major motion picture starring Drew Barrymore, Ted Danson, Kristen Bell, Tim Blake Nelson, John Krasinski, and Vinessa Shaw—an account of the dramatic rescue of three gray whales trapped under the ice in Alaska in 1988.
Set in Cold War–era 1988, Big Miracle tells the real story behind the remarkable, bizarre, and oftentimes uproarious event that mesmerized the world for weeks. On October 7, an Inuit hunter near Barrow, Alaska, found three California Gray whales imprisoned in the Arctic ice. In the past, as was nature’s way, trapped whales always died. Not this time. Tom Rose, who was covering the event for a Japanese TV station, compellingly describes how oil company executives, environmental activists, Inupiat people, small business people, and the U.S. military boldly worked together to rescue the whales. He also tells the stories of some of the more than 150 international journalists who brought the story to the world’s attention. The rescue was followed by millions of people around the world as Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev joined the forces of their two nations to help free the whales.

Stone Maples

by Lena Eltang

About the book ; A detective story that takes place in a fiction small town in Wales.The mysteries of the witchy pension, the cool breeze of the Irish Bay, the Welsh ancient legends, the love story ranging from passion to hate, a mysterious death, which probably was not at all…It is the book of mind-lace, whose heroes change masks and mix their feet so masterly that discovering the secrets of the past for them is as important as understanding the present meaning.

A New Cookbook (Latvian culinary heritage)

About the book ; This one is a pretty cool little book with old recipes(from 1935)that were originally in one of that time cookbooks…And It’s all written in this old Latvian(and I love it)

January Favourites!

20180126_141842

Hello, my darlings!It’s the end of January, the first month of 2018.Where does the time go?! January was a really chill month for me, lots of quality time with my brother watching Get smart (it was still celebration season in our household)so you can imagine how much food I had eaten, and I’m already failing my new year’s resolutions…Who’s with me on this?(But I do try to get better).But we are not here to talk about me failing, but about my January favourites…Let’s start with that!

Beauty Favourites!

Focallure Blush
This month I just loved this blush. It’s so pigmented and has such a lovely finish on the skin, will definitely buy more colours.

Gliss Kur Fiber Therapy

This was a Christmas gift from my lovely friend Alina, and I totally love this. I have used this “set” for a month straight…and my hair is very thankful. It feels smooth and healthy, give it a try if you have very overprocessed hair and need to make it more alive.

FAVORITE BOOK

The Alien Prince: Kovos (Clans of the Ennoi #2)

38091911

As the heat between them grows, so does the threat of war. 
Prince Kovos of the Ennoi knows a loveless, but politically advantageous marriage will end the decades of bloodshed his people have endured. Kovos’s plans for peace go awry when a human woman interrupts his betrothal ceremony – by declaring she’s already his Bonded mate! At the sight of her enticing beauty, logic leaves Kovos. He can’t focus on petty diplomacy or his boring duties when all he wants to do is claim what is his. 
Years ago, Kovos saved nine-year-old Jenna Harlock from human trafficking mercenaries. By re-entering his life, she jeopardizes his fragile peace accord. Despite her fear of aliens, Jenna’s childhood crush blooms into something she ran from her whole life: love. But she can’t give her heart to Kovos. His enemies have her sister. If Jenna doesn’t assassinate the prince, her sister dies. 
Jenna has to trust her alien prince if they are to have any hope of unraveling the sinister plot threatening everything Kovos has built. If they fail, they will lose more than just their happiness – they’ll lose their lives
