The princess isn’t supposed to dethrone the king.

He said he’ll destroy me, and he did.
I might have lost the battle, but the war is far from over.
They say it starts with one move to dethrone the king.
No one mentioned he’ll yank me with him on the way down.

If Steel’s little princess wants a war, then war it is.
There’s only one rule: my rules or none at all.

Possessiveness, jealousy and some major revelations!

This book was every bit as good as I had hoped it would be. Every book in this series gets better, from Cruel King, to Deviant King and Now Steel Princess. Rina Kent published her first book this year and she will have published something like 11 books by the end of 2019. I think I have rated every one of her books 5 stars. I love that she has strong possessive men as the Hero’s and even stronger women who are not afraid to stand up to them.

description 3.5 Stars

I am usually not a huge fan of one couple's story being drug out over more than two books. The second book almost always feels like a filler book, but this one was quite good. The story progressed nicely. There were a few good revelations that kept things interesting. Quite a bit of angst and hot sex, all good things.

That said, there was also a couple niggles for me. One, I am VERY over the Silver OW drama. If the hero hadn't slept with her in the past, it wouldn't bother me as much.
#0: cruel king 4.5 stars
#1: deviant king 4 stars
#2: steel princess 3.5 stars

Devils can't be redeemed. Devils can only crash and burn. He said he'll destroy me, and he did. It's time to destroy him back.

first of all, what the ever loving hell was that ending?! i need to know what happens next! i can't wait for another month ugh.

so yes, this does end in a cliffhanger... again. but that's smart actually because i wanna keep reading this series.

this starts off when Elsa (h) found out that

#1 Deviant King
#2 Steel Princess
#3 Twisted Kingdom
#4 Black Knight (Xander)
#5 Vicious Prince (Ronan)
#6 Ruthless Empire (Cole)

So good!!! Aiden and Elsa are great together. I am really enjoying the suspense too. The ending caught me by surprise, I didn’t see it coming at all! I can’t wait for the next and final installment.

The Royal Elite series continues, and Aiden is a force to be reckoned with. Steel Princess by Rina Kent was riveting, striking, opulent and regal. A stunning masterpiece! Finally we have the continuation to Elsa & Aiden's story hat was full of drama, suspense, intrigue, love and deception. This series is not for the faint of heart. . . It’s dark, gritty, raw to the very core. Steel Princess is one hell of an emotional rollercoaster, that’s

I voluntarily reviewed an advance complimentary copy of this book.

Being mine isn't a choice or a push and pull game anymore. It's her only hope of survival.


An extremely powerful, twisted, obsessive and enthralling tale of deceit, manipulation, , possessiveness, lies, madness, secrets and a little bit of love, may be? Steel Princess was just unputdownable story of December....

Just when I thought that Deviant King was my damnation, author RINA KENT splashes me into the black hole that is Steel

The way this book started - WHAT the actual hell!!! My investment in the first book became so much I had to keep reading to find out what was going on. The secrets and mystery in the first book started to unravel in Steel Princess and it made my heart hurt for both Aidan and Elsa. They had both overcome so much and when they finally find a little bit of happiness again it gets knocked down by more monsters.

The way this book ended had me cursing (only because I need the third). A definite
This book honestly made me a little embarrassed to be a women. For the fact that the heroine was a complete and utter moron, plus the fact that the author is an adult woman choosing to write her characters like this, and plus the fact that I’m an adult woman choosing my time to read this.

Literally the entire book was the h screaming, whimpering, and stuttering... and bending over whenever the H wanted her to. One of the most pathetic, obtuse, and one dimensional characters I’ve ever read. It

Steel Princess is not a standalone, but the 2nd part of a trilogy. If you haven't read book 1, Deviant King, go, go, go and then come back to this book later. There might be spoilers ahead and believe me, you don't want to be left behind here! This is a must read series!

The ending of Deviant King left us with so many questions and a frightening cliffhanger to wait out. That's only the beginning of this wild ride which is as suspenseful as speeding around hairpin turns on a snow covered road!

- Wayyy too much sex
- hero calls the girl sweet heart all the times, like its repeated atleast 4 times in one page.
- they dont talk, only solve everything with sex
- weak heroine
- its getting annoying now
- aiden is wayyy to possessive, its creepy. He doesnt even let her have friends
- i swear elsa s uncle and aunt are pissing me off, they are so melodramatic. Like just tell the girl about her past. Ugh
Holy Moly I thought that Deviant King was so good but this one wow just wow. I finished reading it about 10min ago and im still in aww.

Firstly i would like to say you need to read Deviant King before you read Steel Princess, they are part of a series.

Deviant king ended with a cliffhanger and this one basically picks up where it left off and omg this book has so much more than the first one so much more hotter so much more secrets and did i say so much more hotter lol Aiden is still as alpha,

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review and have literally spent the entire day glued to this book.


If you thought DK was filled with twists and turns and plots and secrets then you ain’t seen nothin yet. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time waiting to see what happened next.


And that ending... lucky I was lying on bed because I literals through my kindle... I mean seriously Ms Kent... WTF. way to leave a girl hanging

Please tell me book three is out

This book blew me away! This is hands down a 10 star read. Rina Kent picks up where she left off with Deviant King and holy shit she doesn’t disappoint! You are on a rollercoaster of emotions and nearly derail at the end of the book. All the suspense and mystery surrounding Elsa’s past unfolds and the intensity is mind blowing. Aiden takes his character to a whole new level of Alpha asshole. You. Need. This. Book! You will want to do a re-read as soon as this book ends!! I can’t recommend Aiden ...more

I hate everything and everyone now.
Rina broke me again, and I want nothing more now than my cat, Xanax, and a panic room.

Deviant King is a mind screw of grand proportion full of little hints and easter eggs enough to make one bedlamite. The story is chockablock of broken characters who are far beyond repair; every damn one of them has more baggage than the Louis Vuitton outlet store. All the females are needy for love and affection but trade any hope for good things so they can live off the

Aiden approached me for revenge. He approached me to hurt me. To destroy me as he promised.

Holy sh*ttttt! This was an excellent book, it had me gripping on to the edge of my seat ALWAYS! Steel Princess is a continuation from Deviant King- the first book which was just an introduction to Aiden's madness, Deviant King was getting us prepared for Steel Princess which is such an intriguing, angsty and a beautiful story.

“They say it starts with one move to dethrone the king. No one mentioned he'll yank me with him on the way down.”

My god.

I'm becoming more and more obsessed with this series. If you haven't started it, please do. Elsa and Aiden 's story will consume you from the very first page. I can't tell you too much about the story, as I don't want to spoil anything. What I can say is that I am addicted to all of them.

Overall, Steel Princess is a captivating, thrilling, bully romance

5 'mind blown' Stars
I am at a loss of words to describe this book. Every little word was so flawlessly written. It was the epitome of perfection
So personally, for the reason how phenomenal the first book had been I was a bit reluctant to read this one since I had very high expectations and didn't want to end up getting disappointed. Let's just say that I made one of the best choices of my life by diving into this book. It just blew my mind to tiny little pieces (which btw I'm still trying to

I don’t even have words. My mind is blown. Rina Kent is one incredible writer and I’m dying to find out what happens next. Steel Princess had me at the edge of my seat—so many twists and turns and I am in love with Aiden!!

The plot thickens. Ugh I love this book, but I feel like I am jumping out of my skin. I need the next one like now. The twists and turns get crazier than ever and keeps you reading the book until all hours of the night. The characters have even more depth to them. The world a little more richer, and with the addition of a new character, more strife. Told in dual pov.

This book left me saying WTF just happened. This book is full of even twist and turns as the first one. Elsa is starting to remember more of her past and figures out how her and Aiden are connected. I loved this book it kept me in my toes beginning to end. I couldn't put it down. January can't come fast enough so I could get the answers to my questions. Hope also we get Knight and Kim's story too these are side characters but from there interactions I need to know their past.

I received an ARC
”Monsters are born.”
”As they grow up, they either deny it or fully embrace it, but it doesn’t change what they are.”

If you are looking for a sweet read, this isn’t the book for you! If you are looking for a swoony hero, this book also isn’t for you!

If you like dark, twisty books, with an anti hero who you love to hate, then this series is definitely for you!

Aiden King isn’t a sweet guy, he’s a monster with a black heart, but in Steel Princess we are starting to learn why, and my god if that
Dec 14, 2019 rated it did not like it
Actual rating 1.5 stars (might change this after I’ve thought about it because I’m really not sure if I want to rate this higher yet)

You know when you watch a show and you stop enjoying it but you keep going because there’s one mystery element you’re so invested in you just HAVE to know the answer to? That’s me with this series. I wanted to know what happened to Elsa and why the Kings hate her so much, which is why I kept reading but the ‘romance’ is just super ridiculous and overdramatic.

Holy Shite the suspense in this book is killing me and I love it! XD
Cliffhanger(?): Absolutely!!

Received ARC from Author for Honest Review

I Give this Book a 5/5 Star Rating.

Heat: 5/5, a good quantity that kept my attention and was never repetitive.
Romance: 3ish/5, it’s there don’t worry but it’s hard to show it, I’m hoping it will be strong in the final book.
Suspense: 5/5 I’m always on the edge of my seat, every time I come up with a new theory, it’s ends up being wrong! The unpredictability is

This is book two in the Royal Elite Series and is NOT a stand-alone. Start the series today by grabbing your copy of Deviant King!

The war has begun, now it’s time to choose whose side they really want to be on. Jealousy, secrets, lies, revelations, betrayal, truths and so much more happen in this continuation of Aiden and Elsa’s story. As her memories begin to return things take a drastic turn and not everything is as she thought. I loved every second of this page turner. It kept me on the edge

Wow what a fantastic continuation of their story.
This book was full of bombshells so can't really say much about it except that it definitely needs to be read to be believed.
Just like her assassin books this author is killing it at this genre.
Would give more stars if I could

The title is tougher and more intense than Frozen. This was a bit disappointing as I was expecting more from this story- nothing happened -at all until the very very end. I thought with the way it ended in book1 that Elsa would elevate but it all sort of pitter pattered the same way of book 1. Nope. She continues to take the abuse.

This one doesn’t quite progress. 30% in and we are still pretty much running the same scene on repeat between Aiden and Elsa. Sex. fight. Whine. Repeat. Kinda
