⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
She was taken from the streets she grew up on at the age of fourteen to be raised by her uncle. A man that she didn’t know and that wanted to mold her into a pawn in his world. Her life went from scraping along with her father, after her mother got sick, to living in a gilded cage and being molded into someone that by all outward appearances did her uncle’s bidding and followed his rules. However, Danika Dayal was not the person that everyone saw on the outside. She had secrets and a vendetta.
He grew up on the same streets as Danika. He was considered a street rat by most that came across him and a leader of a group of boys that were constantly on the radar of the police, but Danika would steer the police in a different direction when questioned. Him and the boys he ran the streets with made a big mistake one day when they tried their luck with stealing from a wealthy man from the neighborhood, or did they make a mistake. He gave them an ultimatum and from there Nikhil King and his closest friends grew into very rich, powerful men that were both revered and feared by many.
I loved this story of two kids that find their way in life and a way to pull themselves up and find the power and prestige that most only dream of. Danika and Nik are both people that should be feared and respected for the people that they have grown to be. They may not have taken the honest route all the way and they may be people that seek revenge for the pain that is inflicted on the people they care about, but they are people that have hearts and are trying to right the wrongs being done. I love the characters and the story. I want more of the Kings and would love to read Jayna and Kiran’s story. There are definitely some very steamy parts in this book. I give this story a 5-star review and look forward to more of the Street Kings.
