Oh man, I loved the crap out of this book. It was a sweet and sexy romance that I totally shipped like you have no idea but I also really loved how it explored how hard the college transition can be, family, grief & loss and having to grow up too soon. I have been pining for some books that aren’t just SET in college as a flimsy background setting for sexy times but the main character ACTUALLY is engaging with college life stuff and this book is 100% that. And well…the romance?
If you like forbidden romances (a student and TA) that don’t make you feel icky…I highly recommend. I loved the slow build of their relationship and the tension that just kept growing between them — especially since he was her TA so a romantic relationship between the two could really have repercussions.
I just could NOT put this one down — it’s compulsively readable and stood out for having a substantive college setting alongside the romance and for having a good guy love interest.
My only qualm came with the uber villainy of the antagonist…it just seemed a little overboard for me. I can see jeopardizing her love life because she’s mad but then some of the other stuff she was threatening was a little much.
You know I don’t read a ton of New Adult because most of it makes me all eye-rolly but I will heartily recommend this one!!...more

Crown Duel was a quick paced adventure for sure that, despite a slow start for me to warm up to, really pulled me in and made me eager to grab the conclusion at the library and check out the novellas. It really hit the ground running with the father dying and with Mel and her brother quickly having to go war against a tyrant king who is threatening their kingdom. It was quite the adventure from the start and I knew pretty early on that I’d really love Mel — even when she’s kinda rude and stubborn. I loved watching Mel and her people think of cunning ways to outsmart these larger and well trained troops. I always root for the band of misfits! As soon as Mel’s adventure breaks off from the rest is where it gets even more intense and made for a great story of adventure, survival and political maneuvering. I really liked the world, though that and the magic system were a little too sparsely constructed for me at times, and loved finding out more about the other kingdoms and players within. I wanted to understand more of the magic and the Hillfolk to be honest. I will say…I WISH THERE WAS A DAMN MAP IN THIS BOOK. I had the hardest time picturing places traveled to or talked about which was really hard for me. I looooved the Marquis and how Mel and he interacted. I see a good ship for book 2 especially because you know I love me a hate-to-love ship! Although I think I would have enjoyed this more when I was younger I did quite enjoy this adventure! Definitely a book to pick up if you are craving fantasy but want something shorter and fast paced!...more
