#BookReview: Brutal Prince (Brutal Birthright #1) by Sophie Lark

Synopsis: He’s No Prince Charming…

Callum Griffin is the heir to the Irish Mafia. He’s ruthless, arrogant, and he wants to kill me.

We got off on the wrong foot when I set a (very small) fire in his house.

Our families believe a marriage pact is the only thing that will prevent all-out warfare.

I think I might need to murder him while he sleeps.

This would all be a lot easier if Callum wasn’t so damned good-looking.

But I’ve got a lockbox around my heart. Because even if I’m forced to marry him…

I could never love a brutal prince.

“Brutal Prince” is the explosive first act in the epic “Brutal Birthright” series. It’s a stand-alone Dark Mafia Romance, complete with HEA and no cliffhangers. It contains blazing hot bedroom scenes for mature readers only!!!


Rating: 3 Stars
My Review: This one was ok.  It's the first book I've read by Sophie Lark but I would be interested in trying something she has done.  This one a little on the slow side and felt very indie.  Even though it's from bloom books.  Which wasn't bad per se.  I think that the story and characters needed a little more work as there were parts where their relationships felt forced and not fluid.  And the story felt kind of slow and the writing didn't feel like other books I've read that this type.  Overall I did enjoy it for the most part and would recommend this to others if I think they would enjoy it.  


★★★★★ "Sophie Lark has me spellbound with Aida and Callum's story... A little L.J. Shen with a bang!"
★★★★★ "SEXY, UNIQUE, AND EXPLOSIVE! You will not regret picking up this book! Aida is the spitfire that Callum never knew he wanted in his life, but boy does he learn quick. Along the way they must learn how to love each other, no mater the trials that are put between them."
★★★★★ "Brilliant steamy enemies to lovers romance! I love reading Sophie's books, they've always got the perfect amount of everything to keep you hooked, I'm like an addict with her books, always wanting more! Aida is my favorite female lead from any book I've read, she's just so sassy and headstrong, she's real and easy to relate to. It was beautiful watching her relationship with Callum change. You won't be disappointed with this book and make sure you give yourself plenty of reading time because you won't want to put it down."
★★★★★ "2020's Sexiest, Laugh-out-loud, Entertaining, Enemies to Lovers Romance! Sophie Lark took mafia romance and added the best banter and humor to make it an exceptional read that had me hooting with laughter"
★★★★★ "This is by far the best hate to love/arranged marriage I've read. The story is exciting, funny, full of drama and the characters are fierce, stubborn and so interesting. Aida and Callum are real enemies from her being part of the Italian Mafia and him the Irish mob, to hating each other after an unfortunate fire. I loved the banter, the animosity and the revenge plots these two came up with. A refreshing way to write a familiar trope!"
