Summary from Goodreads:

From New York Times best-selling author Lexi Ryan, Cruel Prince meets A Court of Thorns and Roses in this sexy, action-packed fantasy about a girl who is caught between two treacherous faerie courts and their dangerously seductive princes.

Brie hates the Fae and refuses to have anything to do with them, even if that means starving on the street. But when her sister is sold to the sadistic king of the Unseelie court to pay a debt, she'll do whatever it takes to get her back—including making a deal with the king himself to steal three magical relics from the Seelie court.

Gaining unfettered access to the Seelie court is easier said than done. Brie's only choice is to pose as a potential bride for Prince Ronan, and she soon finds herself falling for him. Unwilling to let her heart distract her, she accepts help from a band of Unseelie misfits with their own secret agenda. As Brie spends time with their mysterious leader, Finn, she struggles to resist his seductive charm.

Caught between two dangerous courts, Brie must decide who to trust with her loyalty. And with her heart.

I'm not one to stray from my favorite series and author's on a whim, but after reading this book I'm hooked. Did I just cheat on Sarah J. Maas?

Knowing full well this book was a love triangle hell, I still loved each character equally. Although, Bri, the main female lead at times seemed to be a pushover, but she got there in the end and I applauded her tenacity.

Favorite Quote:
"But he can’t make me stop. And he can’t keep me from walking away from the Golden Palace with nothing but my darkness and the betrayal that has wrapped itself around my immortal heart."

I gave this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was entertaining, the romance was spicy and the backstabbing was evil smile worthy. The only thing that detracted from the story for me was the obvious parallels to ACOTAR. I mean, if that's the worst you've got, you can't be doing to bad.

All in all, this was a great read. I'm going to track down book 2 and get to reading.
