⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ 5 out of 5
Dean believes that he has what he wants when he returns to Kingmakers, he has the perfect little slave, but his whole life will change this year at Kingmakers. He was a bully. His group of friends were bullies too. The year will show Dean that his life could be so different, and he may have a place in the world outside of the pain and filth he’s lived in with his father for so long. He doesn’t know what love is nor has felt love in so long.
She’s not really of a mindset of being a spy or of being at Kingmakers, but one incident shows that she could be ruthless and dangerous as well as the others at Kingmakers. Cat is more of an artist than she is a spy or mafia woman. However, when she finds herself in Dean’s clutches and having to do whatever he tells her to, she finds a strength deep within her that will help her follow through with his torment. She will also bring Dean to his knees, but he has no idea of what she can do to him.
I love Sophie Lark’s books, and the Kingmakers series has been just as enthralling as her other books have been. I love The Bully. It is a story of two people that are looking for their place in the world, when they thought they were destined for one thing, their lives are changed, and they are able to see that life can be happy and peaceful. Even though they will have to go through some tough times, their strength will come with their partnership and the love that they find between them. Dean has held a hatred for so long that when he finds the path to a colorful, peaceful life, he finds that he wants so much more from life than what he thought he was headed for. I give this story a 5-star review and am very excited to read The Spy next. I am anxious to find out more about what’s going on behind the scenes and in the shadows of Kingmakers.
