#BookReview: Lawless Kingdom (Reign & Ruin #1) by Natalie Bennett

Synopsis: When something is forbidden, it becomes maddeningly tempting. 

Judas Barron, for example. Wicked blue blood and heir to a severely twisted cutthroat society. 
Everyone knew who he was and what crew he ran with—a clandestine group of filthy rich kids surrounded by ominous secrets. Secrets that were rumored to be dark, dirty, and stained with blood. 

It was never my intention to get tangled up with them, but Judas and I had a secret too, one he was determined to make sure I took with me to my grave, which meant keeping me by his side. 

Now forced to be part of a savage coterie, I start to see his world through a new pair of eyes. It isn’t long before temptation becomes something dangerous and wild, breeding the sickest kind of infatuation. 

And those secrets Judas keeps? 
They’re about to tear my life apart. 

Before beginning this series please be aware that while LK is mild in terms of darkness, the following books in this series will be on a drastically different level, containing graphic violence, total power-control, explicit sexual content, and varying triggers. LK is a percursor that sets the stage for the rest of the series. 18+ only. 


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review: 
I was drawn in by the gorgeous cover and the promise of a depraved rich kid drama and I was not disappointed.  While it was a bit milder than most of Natalie Bennett's stories it still had the same darkness to it that I have come to love with her stories. It was definitely set up for more darkness to come as the story of Judas and Rhiannon progresses in future books. Like all of Natalie's other stories, this was not one for the faint of heart as there is strong violence, total power exchanges, and graphic sex. Once I started reading this story I couldn't put it down and I can't wait to see whats next. 


"Two extremely good looking sexy and twisted individuals. A King and Queen together in depraved desires. 4 stars for me." --Goodreads Reviewer ★★★★
