⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Natalia has finally come to terms with her feelings for Cristiano. When she’s afraid that she’s going to lose him for good after an attack, they finally consummate their marriage and find their days filled with happiness, strategizing, and working together for people of the Badlands to be successful and safe. The only trouble is that they are still in danger and their HEA is not guaranteed. Natalia has metamorphosed from a protected and sheltered princess to a strong, deadly Queen ruling beside her King
I love this series and the conclusion was full of danger, twists, angst, and heartbreak. My need to know the ending of Natalia and Cristiano’s story kept me reading this book until I finished it shortly after midnight. The love between these two is beautiful, I love Cristiano’s statement to Natalia about love, “Love is, I’d die for you.”; “Not, Will you die for me?”. The love between these two is steamy, intense, and unbreakable.
I give this book a 5-star review and enthusiastically encourage you to read this series. Ms. Hawkins did a great job concluding the love story of Natalia and Cristiano de la Rosa. A tragic, beautiful ending to a twisted love story. Full of angst, enemies-to-lovers, slow-burn, coming-of-age, dark, cartel and more.
