Review: Cruel Prince

Cruel Prince by Ashley Jade

Release Date: August 20, 2019
Genres: New Adult
Rating: 🌟 🌟 🌟 🌟

Welcome to their kingdom…

I never thought I’d step foot in Royal Manor again.
But four years later, here I am…back to finish my senior year at Royal Hearts Academy.

And forced to face Jace Covington.
My first friend. First crush. First kiss.
The one I left behind.

Only—he isn’t the same boy I gave my heart to.

This new Jace is as cruel as he is gorgeous.
And he’s determined to make my life a living hell.
Along with the rest of his glorified family and crew of tyrants.

They expect me to worship the ground they walk on like everyone else, but I’d rather eat dirt.

If Jace Covington wants me gone…he’ll have to try harder.
Because I’ve never been the kind of girl to play by the rules.

Who here likes angst filled books? If you do, this is the book for you. This was so entertaining, I couldn’t put it down.

This book follows Dylan and Jace, and is told in dual POV. Dylan and Jace were childhood friends who met on the school yard. They bonded over the fact that they both lost a parent. Slowly, Dylan integrates herself in Jace’s life and family. When her father decides to remarry and move away, Dylan finds herself losing Jace’s friendship and earning his hatred.

Jade makes sure you feel a whole range of emotions while you read this book. I was utterly captivated. I needed to know what was going on. There were so many secrets and the characters kept me on my toes.

The characters were also very dynamic. I really and truly hated Jace when the book first started. I’m honestly amazed Jade was able to redeem him in my eyes. Dylan and Jace’s journey was never easy, their relationship was filled with bumps, but it was so perfect. Dylan was a rockstar. She was amazing and I was rooting for her every page.

I can’t wait for book 2! This is a series of standalones, but I loved Jace’s siblings, so I can’t wait to see what their books bring.
