Crush the King by Jennifer Estep

Crush the King by Jennifer Estep

Queen Evie has been playing the long game with the King’s sister, a sister who he doesn’t acknowledge and isn’t even really considered a royal because she is a bastard.

Not reading, not writing the reviews I’m behind on, not editing my Bout of Books vlog – yes I recorded myself, but I’ve done this several times and never edited and put together the video, which is why I haven’t been posting on YouTube. This is more or less how this week has gone.

Keep reading to see what series I’m talking about.
