Some would say I have a privileged life. Daughter of the current President of the United States, wealthy, famous, and all things that some girls wish they had.
Only I'd dream of having a simple life. A life where I wasn't marrying the scariest man I have ever met. Well, I thought I had just met him, but it turns out, there's so much I don't know about myself. That's all thanks to a past so twisted, so warped, that no amount of money, or presidential status could wipe it clean.
I'm the rebel child. Or as some may see it, the disappointment. I’ve never cared about expensive wedding gowns, or how much someone paid for a tailored suit. I don’t care if your wedding dress is from Walmart, or if it’s from some fancy, upscale designer line.
So why am I marrying the devil dressed in a thousand-dollar suit?
I'm about to find out how I got here. To marrying one of the most powerful men in the country. The road to finding out, though, is paved with darkness, painted with the blood of innocents, and it leads my ass straight to hell. Only this hell is a multi-million-dollar penthouse suite in New York City where Bryant Saint Royal, sits on his throne.
Little bit more about this book...
I've had this plot turning inside my brain for a while now. I've tossed and turned with it, fought with it, tried to modify it to be more acceptable, and in short, I've tried to p*ssy foot around my brutal little demons who have been whispering this story for over a year. Truth is, I couldn't tame it. I couldn't tame them, and I had to write it exactly as I saw it. Exactly as I have lived it, breathed it, relished in it inside of my head. See, my stories aren't voices, they're real, and they own every single inch of my being as I write them. Back to this book, yes, it was originally supposed to be a standalone, but I sent it to TWO betas who BOTH kicked up a sh*t at me about how the story was just...untold. So, I went back in, dove head first back into the murky depths of hell to revise, re-edit and twist the plot even further so this could be told in THREE parts. Book 1 is a full length standalone, but books 2 & 3 will be A LOT longer. You won't be able to figure out this plot. Calling it twisted is an understatement, and It will f you in more ways than you've ever been f-ed before.
Anyway, I would say goodluck, but luck ain't got shit, and god ain't gon' save you.
First and foremost, Amo Jones DOES NOT DISAPPOINT. I signed up for Crowned By Hate without even reading the blurb. I don’t need to. It doesn’t matter what it says, I’m going to read it. So that means that I went into this book completely blind. At first, I was questioning how I was going to get that signature darkness in this book with a daughter of a US President without telling some type of story that we’ve haven’t already heard. However, it only took a short time before I realized that I was stupid in even doubting it. We never get what we think we are getting from Jones and that is such a huge compliment.
Isa seems like your typical bad girl. The rebellious one who grew up in politics and is itching to be set free. But once you start getting her background, you realize that it might be true but she’s got a past on her that would mess anyone up. She’s strong and independent. She’s feisty and out outspoken. Yet all it takes is Bryant Royal to tame her a bit. Or so it would appear. Little did we know that there’s more to Bryant and Isa that meets the eye. He may be her enemy and he may have weaseled his way to get her to marry him, but there’s something underlying there that we just don’t know about.
Bryant. He deserves his own one word sentence. He’s dark and mysterious with a charm that will attack like a rattlesnake. One minute you’ll hate him, the next minute you’ll love him. One thing is for sure. You’ll love the progression with him and Isa. I was dying for them to connect and get past that passionate hate. It’s always a thin line between love and hate, right? But what exactly is it that he hates? That’s what we get to learn and experience a little bit and it’s all over the place. Love and hate. That’s what he does to you.
Crowned by Hate is dark and dangerous with one hell of a mind game. Go ahead and try to keep guessing what is going on. Every time I felt good about something, it turned bad. Every time I thought I knew where it was going, it went a completely different direction and I loved every moment of it. I can’t wait to see what we have in store for the rest of this story. I know it’s going to be deliciously dark, hauntingly beautiful, and emotionally nerve-wracking.
