I was raised to be Jadon Safrin’s enemy…

My father wouldn’t rest until he was dead.

When war threatened to break out between our countries and I met Jadon face-to-face, I realized I could become his greatest weakness.

I could either do the right thing, or I could let him crash and burn, paving the way for my family to rule all of the kingdoms.

But I’d never met a man like Jad

What an amazing finish to this series. I am sad to see it end. I have fallen in love with all these characters, but I loved how Willow finished each of the couples stories.

I think Pride has ended up being my favorite of this series and that’s something because I loved Downfall!!

I am not going to be talking about this storyline...this story needs to unfold by itself for every reader. I will say this book is a s

I couldn’t wait for this story and devoured it in one day!
The suspense, engaging characters and well paced story is intriguing and beautifully written! I was so happy for Jadon to get a well deserved ending.
This was an awesome conclusion to this series!

I was provided an ARC by the author to provide my honest review. Pride by Willow Aster releases everywhere on May 28th.

Saying goodbye to her feels like saying goodbye to light. To hope. To a future. The end of life as I've always known it.

Pride is the final book in the Kingdom of Sins series, and this entire series has been so amazing. I'm sad to see it go, but I was excited to find out how everything played out in the end.

I've been curious about Jadon since the beginning. He was so mysteriou

The Kingdom of Sins series has been a ride. The first book really grabbed me and it was so original. Although the rest of the characters were sometimes off for me but I wanted to know what would happen.
Never a dull moment for sure in the books.

I knew Jadon's story was going to be interesting. This had a enemies to lovers feel to it. It started of unpredictable on the heroine's motives. But easily moved into Jadon seeing her and being attracted. While there are still many unknowns I had a feelin

What a perfect ending to this series! With each new book, I think I’ve found my new favorite, but now I think I really can’t choose. I love them all.

Jadon’s story was the one I had been waiting for. He has such a heartbreaking past and I was anxious for him to finally get the happiness he deserves. Willow did not disappoint! Nothing in this book or this series, for that matter, is instantaneous. These characters have to work hard for their happiness. They have to grow and evolve before they can

Willow Aster finishes off the Kingdoms of Sin series with a bang! Pride is passionate, emotional, and a heartwarming read! Jadon and Delilah were everything I hoped they'd be and more! Their connection was instant, palpable, and soul deep.

I'm so sad to see these characters go, but love how Aster ended the series! All the puzzle pieces came together with no loose ends. Lovers of royal romance - Kingdoms of Sin should absolutely be your next binge read!

This is the 4th and final story in this awesome series and is Jadon and Delilah’s story. I always felt that Jadon’s story would be a cracker and how right I was! This is a beautifully written flawless story which is unique, heartbreaking, and with emotion, passion, danger, lies, deceit, secrets, and revenge which all lead to a heart-warming and all-consuming tale which had me totally captivated throughout this addictive page turner. I highly recommend for all readers.

Jadon trusts no one with good reason, the events around him have left him scarred but that all changes when he sees Delilah. The second these two eyes looked it was game over without even realizing it. There’s so much intrigue in this story that it kept me on edge till the very end.

Pride, the final book of Willow Aster’s Kingdoms of Sin series, ends the series in all of the glory. This reader has been there since the beginning, Downfall, when the pain bled on the page from Luka’s spurning of his arranged bride, Eden, through their eventual happy ending to Mara and Elias’s story in book 2, Exposed, to Ava and Gentry in book 3, Ruin. Each book’s characters were singular. The journeys of their heroes and heroines were specific to that story. All along,

Y'all this book had it all and it hit the nail on the head. I LOVE Willow's writing and this series has it shining. You wont be able to put it down once you start. This is the 4th book in the series so don't read ahead if you haven't read the others.

This ia Jadon's story and guys it is EVERYTHING. I am sad to see the series end but I am so glad that it went out with this big of a perfect bang.

The last time we saw Jadon Safrin, he'd narrowly escaped getting assassinated by his sister and stepmother, both of whom had been drugged and hypnotized. Crazy, right? Welcome to the twisty royal world Willow Aster created, in which she uses shades of Game of Thrones and her own sense of palace intrigue to create characters and stories that keep you turning the pages.

In this book, Jadon comes up against (in more ways than one) Delilah Farthing, the princess of a kingdom Jadon considers to be pro

Delilah Farthing has always seen Jadon Safrin as the enemy. Her father wants nothing to do with him, and seeks to conquer his kingdom. Tired of being treated like a pretty ornament, she embarks on a covert mission to win Jadon over peacefully, so her father can see that she is more than a centerpiece. Yet, when she meets the man, she realises that he is completely different to what she's heard over the course of her life.

Jadon has learned the hard way not to trust. He didn't have it easy as a ch
***ARC received in exchange of an honest opinion***

I was expecting Jadon's book since he first appeared in the first book in the series. I felt like he was interesting and there was more to him and in every book that came after that one I wanted more of him. Because Jadon Safrin in fact is interesting and I really liked him.

I like that he and Delilah have the whole enemies-to-lovers kind of romance going on. I liked her from the start too and their chemistry is undeniable. In fact, Pride is my s

I have loved every book in this series and Pride is no exception. Willow Aster’s writing is unbelievable and addicting. It pulls me in and makes me feel everything. From the first book in this series she had me wanting more. Wanting to know everything about every character we got introduced to. To know everything about each kingdom. I did not want this series to end, but she did it the ending justice!

I received an ARC of this book for an honest review.

The Kingdoms of Sin series is coming to an end and I am not okay. I love this series so much and I am not ready to see it come to an end, but I was definitely beyond ready for Jadon's story, and it definitely did not disappoint at all.

Jadon and Delilah are angst and passion, joy and fear... they are everything. From the very start, you are drawn into their story, wanting to know more and needing more with each page that you turn. Each book in t

I couldn’t have asked for a better ending to this series. I didn’t think I could love anyone as much as I loved Eden and Luka but Jadon and Delilah proved me so wrong! I started this book at around midnight and I didn’t no.. I couldn’t stop until I finished it around 3 in the morning. These characters were just something else.. because from the beginning of this series, I knew that Jadon’s story was one I was dying to read and Willow Asters certainly saved the best for last.

I am absolutely loving the Kingdoms of Sin series by Willow Aster and though I am sad to see it end, it was a great read! In Pride we get Jadon’s story. This story was emotional and captivating and though I never wanted it to end, I had to keep reading. Jadon has a heartbreaking background and yet is strong and determined. Can he trust the daughter of his enemy? Delilah wants what is best for everyone, but can she do what is expected? But can either save their hearts in the end? Pride b

As per the usual when it comes to the Kingdom of Sins series I loved this story and the characters inside of it! There was never a dull moment and the pacing was perfect.

But I think with Pride I soaked it up more and enjoyed it so much more because I knew my journey with these characters was coming to an end. In turn-- I took my time with these characters and their story. After four books I had become attached to them all! So it was sad to see it all come to an end.

Pride by Willow Aster is another incredible in the Kingdom of Sins series!

I was drawn into the storyline immediately. As soon as I started, I knew that I wasn't going to be able to put the book down until I was finished. Yup, that's what led to me reading at 3am, when I should have been sleeping.

Jadon and Delilah were two characters that I guarantee you will love. They were perfect for one another. There was this intrigue to their relationship throughout the entire novel, that will keep you oohi

Pride by Willow Aster
“The end, 5 stars”

I loved the Kingdom of Sin series and I was seriously sad to see it come to an end. Pride is all about well pride. Jadon knows someone is after him and he has suspicion of who. But he refuses to hide and cower. Because that’s not what his people needs and well…he has way to much pride to do that. But when Jadon meets his match he’s willing to set aside his pride to get the girl. Only the enemy is drawing near. Are their lives at stake? Only one way to find

Pride is my favorite book is this series! Jadon’s story was so much more than I could have asked for.

As soon as Jadon and Delilah sparks fly! These two have such hot intense chemistry. The push and pull with these two is so intense. Being from enemy kingdoms makes their story that much more hot. Delilah has been sheltered all her life by her horrible father, she’s a little on the naive side. But oh so sweet, it’s impossible not to love her. Jadon has always had a spot in my heart.

Pride was an epic way to end this series, though I came to it a bit late. That doesn't mean that I'm not all caught up now because I am, which makes my first statement absolutely true. This story surrounded Jadon, a dark horse, & Delilah, the fierce princess who just wants to be her father's equal. She has no filter like me, so I absolutely fell in love with her immediately. There is so much passion in this story that I swear steam came out of my kindle. However, it was the twists & turns which ...more

Wow, Willow knows how to finish a series! This one, by far is my favorite and I loved them all, but the loyalty and love that is intertwined into this book with all the characters but mostly with Jadon and Delilah is amazing.

I just didn’t want the book to end and when I finally got to the last page I was left with such a happy heart. Pride is just that a story of going after what you believe in, following your heart, trusting your instincts and loving those around you fiercely all while standin

I loved Jason and Delilah’s story! This book had me on the edge of my seat from the very beginning! I loved following on their journey and seeing characters from the series other books (all must reads!). Delilah is such a strong character, and we see that in so many different ways throughout the book. She is not one to roll over and take her position lightly or what is handed to her. I love all the strong female characters in this series, but Delilah is my favorite! Jadon seems like he would be ...more
