What it’s about
A heart is a dangerous thing to steal.
From New York Times bestselling author Lexi Ryan, Cruel Prince meets A Court of Thorns and Roses in this sexy, action-packed fantasy about a girl who is caught between two treacherous faerie courts and their dangerously seductive princes.
Brie would do anything before making a deal with the Fae; death is better than their vicious schemes. But when her sister is taken by the sadistic king of the Unseelie court, there is nothing Brie wouldn’t do to get her back-including making a deal with the king himself to steal three magical relics from the rival Seelie court.
Gaining unfettered access to the Seelie court is easier said than done. Brie’s only choice is to pose as a potential bride for the Seelie Prince, Ronan-a prince who’s not quite as wicked as she once thought. Unwilling to let her heart distract her, she accepts help from a band of Unseelie misfits with their own secret agenda. But as Brie spends time with their mysterious leader, Finn, she finds herself struggling to resist his seductive charm.
Caught between two dangerous courts, Brie must decide who to trust with her loyalty . . . and with her heart.

What I Thought
“Abriella, every star in that sky shines for you”
Thank you to Netgalley and Hodder and Stoughton once again for providing me with an eArc of this book in exchange for an honest review.
I’m going to start by saying I simply could not put this book down. This kept me interested the whole way through especially with the twists and turns that I didn’t see coming.
I loved the world-building in this and I could clearly picture things in my mind’s eye from the dresses to the balls and everything else. I also liked the sibling bond and how Abriella was willing to do anything for Jas.
Abriella is a strong female character but she can seem a little dense. I know I said I didn’t see some twists and turns coming but I saw them more than Brie. Sebastian to me felt like he was putting a lot on Brie and although he knew she was saying no he was still there always at the side waiting for her to change her mind. Finn on the other hand although he’s the grump Unseelie Prince I have a soft spot for him.
My biggest negative about this book is how long I am going to have to wait to find out what happens next. I honestly cannot wait.
