REVIEW: His True Queen by Jodi Ellen Malpas


Hey guys. I hope things are going well, summer's not too hot, you've gone on a quick adventure, and life is good. I also hope that if you pick up His True Queen, the second in the Smoke and Mirrors duet, that you are ready. Are you ready for it? Here's a handy dandy list of things you'll probably want at the ready while you're reading:

1. Yoga classes--you're going to need to really be able to breathe deeply through some of these parts because OHMYGOD.
2. Along those lines, you'll probably want those paddle thingies that they use to restart you're heart because I think I died a few times while reading.
3. Also important? A case to protect your reading device because you may want to throw it a few times.
4. Probably some ibuprofen because between the swooning, sweating, and ovary explosions, you might be a little out of sorts.
5. A friend who's also reading this so you can have someone to text angsty swoony things to.
6. A crown for JEM because she's officially the QUEEN of angsty reads!

Y'all. I swear this duet was the most fun way to begin and end my summer (I go back to work next week). His True Queen had my heart racing, my brain concocting theories at every turn, and my fingers constantly tempted to go to the last page to see how it ends (and I really never do that because I'm usually so good at self control!). Adelaide and Josh's journey to their HEA was intense and insane and I really had no desire to put my Kindle down until I got to the end (sleep and laundry be damned!). The twists and turns and scandal and heartache were great and hard and horrible which made the ending that much more meaningful (and has me hoping for a book for Eddie!). 

If you're looking for an angsty, steamy, fun and funny duet, do not look further because these books have it all. 



The breathtaking conclusion of the Smoke & Mirrors Duology.

A beautiful, defiant princess. A renowned, sinfully gorgeous Hollywood actor.

A love affair that is sure to rock the British Monarchy…and the world.

Their love affair began intensely and passionately. Princess Adeline and Josh Jameson knew any future together was impossible—her status as a princess and his standing as a Hollywood heartthrob dictated that. But the heights of pleasure they could take each other to were wildly unanticipated by them both. Josh’s absolute disregard for Adeline’s status quickly drew her into his hedonistic world. And her perfectly worn mask and false fa├žade captivated Josh to the point of obsession. The boundaries became blurred. The physical became emotional. Their hearts became entwined.
But a cruel turn of events rips their worlds apart and Adeline is more bound than ever by the protocol and expectations her title commands. The army of royal advisors who guard the secrets and scandals of the Monarchy will go to unthinkable lengths to keep the smoke and mirrors in place…and Josh away from Adeline. She knows the power she possesses comes with agonizing sacrifices. Walking away from Josh devastates her…but it keeps him safe from the corrupt institution that has ruled her life.
Yet Josh refuses to lose the woman who has consumed him so completely, distorted his boundaries, and stripped him of all sensibility.
Will the power of the British Monarchy triumph? Or will their fierce love for each other change the course of history?
