Queens move is phenomenal. From the cover… come on it’s yellow…. to the last page..to everything in between. Nikita has outdone herself yet again. The only thing that makes me groan about this is the Spanish. Spanish uses feminine and masculine forms of the same word and that’s not being used correctly along with other words. But as you can see that wasn’t enough to not love this story. I can’t wait for Raina’s book because please there has to be one.
I seriously devoured this book! Sotza and Vee have to be my most favorite characters that Nikita has written. Just when you think you know what is coming next BAM you go down another rabbit hole. I LOVED this book.
Vee is a female character who holds her own with the male characters in this book. She has taken some hard knocks in her life but clawed her way up to the top. I admired her fiery determination while mourning her misfortunes. I don’t want you to think for one minute she doesn’t have heart because it is showcased in many of her scenes with family and friends. Sotza(Vee’s love interest) is a bit different coming off as cold and vicious except with Vee and a few others. He isn’t an easy character to love but I did appreciate how he was protective of Vee while still respecting her strength and opinions. Now that isn’t to say he didn’t make me growl a few times with his authoritative attitude but in my opinion Vee handled it well. I thought the book kept a steady pace with the action, the love scenes were very hot, and you also get a clear understanding of why Sotza has the nickname he has which might be a little disturbing to some readers . I am always a sap for a happy ending which this book has with some hints about the next book in this series. This one left me contently smiling!
Holy smokes y’all! I seriously did not know how this book was going to flush out. There were several times I thought Vee or Sotza might kill one another. Boundaries are pushed to a delicious degree in this book!! I mean!!! I don’t want to give up any spoilers but if you like confidence, dominance and out right fearlessness in both of your main characters, you found it! I loved this book! Couldn’t get enough! I can’t wait to read Raina’s story!
I hate seeing this book end!
Nikita Slaterhas stamped her brand all over the story; giving us her usual crazy and obsessive heroes. But what I love most is her making the heroines an equal to her heroes.
This story may be dark-ish for some. In fact, it has harsh contents but it’s actually what make the story. Underground themed books usually have dark and brutal storyline but the author did not really made it her focus but the developing relationship between her main characters.
Where in other books, the gore and the fcukedupness are being extremely flaunt and discuss, in this book, the author shows you the life in the underground world while making both her MCs survive it and while surviving each other.
The possession and obsession combined with pure unadulterated lust and longing is very palpable, it will burn your Kindle!
That’s one more to add as to why I love reading her books. The characters sticks through its core. The author shows you what it is to be like in finding love while living dangerously. Her characters were all humanly flawed, but despite having them, they’re still capable of feeling and giving adoration and love. It is not, after all, easy to find real love while living and leading a dangerous life.
Her male characters are all strong and determined. Tough in all ways. Alphas through and through. That can be said with her female characters. They have something that lure and hook these dominating males. The chase is absolutely exciting!
Also, trust Nikita to end this book with a BANG! That epilogue will give me itch until the next book releases! I honestly can’t wait!
Queen’s Move Book Two of The Queens
Written by Nikita Slater
5 Stars isn’t enough
“I’ll never be yours.”
“My patience isn’t endless,” he said quietly. “Step carefully…. Leaving me will never be an option, not now and not in our future.”
This series has quickly climbed to the top of my all time favorites. It has passion, chemistry, fear, the unexpected, loyalty, revenge, deceit and a dark edginess. There were parts that were dark and expected being this is a mafia series. One scene was almost too much for me, but Nikita knew exactly when to dial it back to not take me too far.
“He would break her down until he conquered her, owned her. Mind, body and soul.”
As I turned the final pages I was hoping this series wasn’t coming to an end. I was thrilled to see Raina will be getting her story in Born a Queen. If you haven’t read the other books in The Queens Series you will want to grab those~won’t want to miss out!
Vee is no ordinary heroine. She’s strong, fierce and understands just how ruthless the mob world she lives in can be. She tries to salvage her organization when it starts falling apart due to the Gentleman Butcher coming to fix her territory. But being fascinated by Vee, the Gentleman Butcher decides to possess her along with her territory.
Isaac Sotza was nicknamed the Gentleman Butcher as he liked to torture his enemies in a gentlemanly fashion. He stalks and corners Vee at every opportunity, giving her barbaric presents in order to proclaim his loyalty to her until she uses her last move to run away from him.
This story is a slow burn romance that really spices up when Sotza binds Vee to him permanently. He even helps to reunite Vee with someone very close to her.
Nikita Slater is a great storyteller who is able to create an amazing world in which two people who have experienced the cruelties of the world learn to care for and experience the beauty of it in each other.
I ended up loving every part of this book. I cannot wait to learn about what happens to Raina and Matteo in the next book of this series.
The Mafia trope are my absolute favorite! There was so much about this book that just worked. The flow, the characters, the twists and turns in the plot, and all the hot scenes.
Sotza and Elvira are both personified as having strong characters and when circumstances brings them head to head you can’t help but worry about how it may be resolved. The power struggle was constant. Sotza is not one to play around and when he decides to take Vee for himself he literally transforms into an OTT possessive alpha that I absolutely loved. Our heroine has is a queen who fights with an unprecedented strength in her own right and doesn’t make the fight easy for Sotza.
The plot, sex scenes, and secondary characters made this book a definite FIVE stars!
OMG!!!! This book is absolutely positively amazing. I love everything about this book from the beginning to the ending. Sotza is sexy hot and his Queen Vee I truly loved her character. Nikita Slater you never disappoint LOVED IT!!!
Vee is a strong determined woman that refuses to back down when challenged. She ended her husband’s life so she could take her rightful place as Queen in a boys only club. As she struggles to retain her power she finds herself backed into a corner by the one man who can rob her of everything she has worked for. Sotza is the man sent to take Vee out and claim her territory. His cruelty and precision has given him a reputation that instils fear in others. That is until he crosses paths with this bold beauty. Nikita Slater knocked it out of the park with Queen’s Move. This dark romance will keep you captivated until the very end.
