Synopsis: Have you ever wanted someone...you couldn't have? For almost a year, all Bea wanted was for things to go back to the way they were before her best friend left…but when Caid Knight comes into her life, everything changes. Even after Princess Jennipher returns, there is something different about the friendship they once shared as her relationships with fellow housemaids, Kerry and Lucy, begin altering and dwindling. News of a revolt against Crimson Isle’s four monarchies threatens the lives of those closest to her while her own safety becomes the most endangered as she considers leaving the only home she has ever known. As for Caid, her feelings for him are growing stronger with each passing day yet she doesn’t know how he feels about her. Before she can ask, she is told that fate will not allow them to be together, regardless of what she tries to do to be with him. Will she defy this foretelling or surrender herself to it?
What it's about: Bea is a maid in the Royal household and is the princess' best friend. While the princess is away, Bea meet's Caid. Caid is handsome and doesn't give in to her every whim. Bea can feel herself falling for him, but doesn't know if he feels the same. Enter Drake, another devilishly handsome man, out to steal Bea's heart.
What I thought: This is a boy-meets-girl kind of book, with a fantasy setting and plot twists at every corner. I spent most of the time reading, trying to figure out just where the story was going and not once was I right. Monique Peterson surely knows how to keep her readers on their toes. While this book kept me enthralled, I found myself at the end with even more questions than I had at the start! It definitely leaves it open for a sequel, one that I hope will be even better than the first!
the good: If I say the man candy, does that make me shallow? ;) Caid <3 font="font">3>
the bad: This book was an lovely and easy read, but sometimes Bea's acting as if she is entitled, struck a nerve.
