He’s prince charming. Just not hers.

I have a secret.
I stole a heart, or rather a marriage contract.
It wasn’t mine to own, to look at or to even consider.
But it was there for the taking so I took it.
Huge mistake.
Ronan Astor is a nobility in this world.
Arrogant player.
Heartless bastard.
Vicious prince.
Now, he’s out to destroy me.
What he doesn’t know is that I’m out to destr

And........... I don't know if this is my last book by Rina Kent. I hated it so much.

I mean, let's start with the obvious and disgusting fact that Teal was having sex with WAY WAY WAY OLDER MEN and thank fucking goodness that was not actually shown but no words. Honestly. And let's say I could try to understand where Teal was coming from but come on, it was illegal (and among all the shit this author has gotten away with, this is just...) and utterly awful.

Look, I haven't been victim of a sexua

Five Stars “Now and Always”!

So the bully romance with the rich privileged guy and the girl from the poor troubled background has been done before. But I love it anyway and this book one was a step above the rest. I actually wanted Cole’s story to be next in the series because he is intelligent and a bit mysterious. I thought Ronan’s story would be a bit boring since Ronan is such a nice guy. He didn’t seem to have much depth other than being a playboy.

I was so wrong! Ronan is hiding surprising i

TRIGGER WARNING (view spoiler)

I can not even express how disappointed I was after finishing this book. I can not believe this book is EVEN part of the same series I became obsessed with. After reading Black Knight I COULD NOT wait for Ronan’s book. The chill guy. Who is all smiles and jokes. And then we had Teal the dark, Anti social girl who just came out of nowhere and hardly even acknowledged Ronan, the guy EVERYBODY LOVES.

Where do I start

I had thoughts of my review running a loop through my head when reading the book. But now I don’t know if I have the energy for a big long rant. I just know that I have to say something. If you are going to use sexual abuse/child molestation trauma as the plot line to your book, do us all a favor and do it right. As a survivor I am exhausted from reading books by authors who use it because they needed an excuse for their character to be weak, selfish, anti-social, slutty, mean, s

I know since the beginning of this series that Ronan was gonna be my favorite ,
and now I'm sure he is.😍
This story was an hurricane of emotions , I can't even describe it.
I was waiting forever for Ronan to show his true colors , and when he did I wasn't ready to take all that .
Under all that smiles there's a force and a calculation that you wouldn't ever imagine , but that's what makes him spec

Now on Pre-Order


Everyone have an unicorn author who makes it impossible for the readers to resist their stories or characters. For me, since Aiden, Rina has been *it*. Vicious Prince is a standalone story featuring Death. By now, we have guessed that Teal is the one who brings death a new awakening. And how beautiful their journey i

5 ”Ma belle” stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

She stirred up my ugly side, and now she has to become its target.
I, Ronan Astor, the most attentive lover you could ever find, want to break someone — but not just anyone.

First and foremost I need to find myself a man who’ll call me his ma belle the way Ronan does so lovingly ASAP. Second, I just can’t get ENOUGH of Rina Kent’s books. She is truly one of a kind. Her writing makes me feel every single emotion. The tension, the angst, the suspense, the lust, t

Okay, i dont know how to review this book because i dont remember what i read. Literally i finished it 2 min ago and i forgot everything because nothing happens in the book. Its like Black Knight all over again but with no logic. There was no bond or connection between Teal and Ronan other than the fact that they were assaulted by the same person and whats with the author writing that everyone in this book has a childhood trauma to make it “dark”. It was all over the place, there w

Leaving aside the fact that the author is problematic, if you take Broken Knight and Angry God from L.J Shen, put them in the blender and then add some asteroids to it, it would be this book. And I'm not saying this as a good thing because those two books are already kinda bad (I still love Vaughn Spencer tho).

Next topic: I have read six books by this author so far and in all of them there's AT LEAST one shitty parent, a lot of childhood traumas related to the previous point and a feud between f
FIVE ANGST STARS for Teal and Ronan 💛🖤💛🖤!!!


The book left me speechless...

Honestly, I imagined Ronan's book completely differently and Rina surprised me from the very beginning to the very end of the book.

Even in my wildest dreams, I would not expect such action as Rina put in this book.

Rina has shown again that she is a skilled writer because she has once again proved that no matter how many books a series of her has, every book has special actions, especially characters that are hard to g

It’s official. These characters OWN me – mind, body and soul.

The jaded heroine falls for the larger-than-life hero. Moody, brooding and volatile meets jovial, nonchalant and easy-going. Opposites attract. Enemies to lovers. Privileged characters with dark pasts. This book was MADE for me.

Vicious Prince is more than just an opposites attract story; I was flawed by the connection Teal and Ronan shared. Those two are the definition of soulmates, and Rina Kent had me

He doesn’t know that death isn’t a title.
Death is the beginning of every war, and I’ve already started mine.
I stole his will, his future, and soon enough, his life will follow.

Now, this is the Rina Kent, I fell in love with!!!

Ronan has always been my favorite character and I was very excited for his book. I wanted to see what darkness haunted the otherwise playful boy who never failed to put a smile on everyone's face.

Teal was well... interesting. Snarky little Gothic smartass, I loved her character, personally.

The plot was totally amazing. Fast paced, this book gripped me from the beginning. The smut was off charts hot. Who could have thought Teal to be

Vicious Prince is the fifth installment of the Royal Elite series, finally giving readers the story of Ronan Astor & Teal Van Doren in this prep school bully/enemies to lovers romance. She stole a boy who was never intended to be hers in the first place. On the surface these two couldn’t be more polar opposites....but the more they learn about one another, the more they see how wrong they might

Ronan had made me laugh so many times in the previous books . It will be fun to see everything from his prospective. I hopef for a kick-ass heroine , But We are getting Teal . I don't like her much . So i hope for Ronan's POV most . Rina Kent better give him Cake bunny hookers in this book.

I love this author. Her last book made me ugly cry! With this book,she tackles a sensitive subject matter and I really appreciated the way she handled it.

This is Teal's story and, boy, I absolutely adored the first half of the book!!! Teal was such a refreshing heroine and I really enjoyed being inside her head. She has one mission in life and Roman is her ticket to revenge.

I actually really liked this one! So unexpected too because I was NOT looking forward to the manho Ronan, but I think Rina really did justice with him. Even Teal I liked, and I'm glad she didn't turn her all weak like Kim, Astrid, and sometimes Elsa were. Rina's writing has also improved substantially in this one, and it definitely shows. There were some dumb moments such as the ending and how Teal has never orgasmed before, but some nippl
