    My little dark loving heart almost burst with excitement when I found out that this book was on its way and let me tell you, it did not disappoint. I don’t have any triggers and I welcome being lead out of my comfort zone and I have to say, Vengeful Queen really pushed the boundaries with it’s extremely violent and very dark plot.

I don’t have any triggers and I welcome being lead out of my comfort zone and I have to say, Vengeful Queen really pushed the boundaries with it’s extremely violent and very dark plot. The opening chapter stole my breath with its shocking and brutal scenes and similar ones throughout the book are equally, if not more, disturbing and difficult to read. Those scenarios are decidedly challenging, the depravity difficult to comprehend, but for someone who likes the darkness, I found them fascinating, wondering just how far they’d go. Those of you who also embrace a dark read will understand when I say it got my adrenaline going and my heart pumping and I absolutely loved it. I thanked goodness that Avery and Rome had the support of each other for the most part, as I was so far past hoping for the best and in fact began despairing along with these characters, that they would ever find their way out of captivity. A fantastic plot, with twists and turns and bombshell revelations I didn’t see coming, had me on the edge of my seat. A certain turn of events towards the end of the book now has me desperately chomping at the bit for the concluding part to Avery and Rome’s epic tale. And THAT ending? Just brilliant!

Lili is one of my favorite dark romance authors so I was certain that she would deliver a great book. Vengeful Queen picks up where we left off and Rome and Avery are in the hands of a psychotic killer. It was very difficult to see how this monster broke the two main characters down day by day. A lot of horrific and evil things were done, and it really broke my heart. While Rome and Avery are enemies, you see them grow closer together in captivity. They try to motivate each other to hold on and not give up. "Everything about you turns me on. But it doesn't just turn me on, Avery. It sets me on fire." First of all I loved that the author took her time in this book. If I remember correctly I found the previous book a bit too fast paced and wished it was longer. She totally delivered in this book and set the mood for each part of the book. I was fully hooked to the story and intrigued to see what would happen next. There were a couple of twists, which I am used to from this author. I had my theories about certain things but I have to say that Lili did an incredible job in throwing me off the scent. There is a lot going on but it never felt too much. I loved seeing the characters grow. Especially Avery went through a transformation and I admired her determination. This book was dark, sexy, romantic and suspenseful. I saw a couple of things coming but the ending definitely has me super excited to get my hands on the last book in this series.

    The first book was good and I love some of this authors other stuff. However, the wait for this follow up has been ridiculous. I have not read the second book, but I hope the author notices how disappointed and angry her fans are becoming over it. I have now removed this book and will no longer read anymore series from this author. The length between books is too long, and it seems she doesn’t care. Starting too many other projects and not completing this one. I’m done.

    Lili St. Germain is back and dare I say she is BETTER THAN EVER! Vengeful Queen was 3 years in the making and I am here to say that it does not disappoint. Holy moly I was swept away almost immediately as we pick up right where we left off in Vicious Prince as Avery Capulet's world is turned on its proverbial head and nothing can ever be the same again. St. Germain does not hold back as we witness the brutality that is thrust upon Avery and the boy she once loved as their lives endure endless day Lili St. Germain is back and dare I say she is BETTER THAN EVER! Vengeful Queen was 3 years in the making and I am here to say that it does not disappoint. Holy moly I was swept away almost immediately as we pick up right where we left off in Vicious Prince as Avery Capulet's world is turned on its proverbial head and nothing can ever be the same again. St. Germain does not hold back as we witness the brutality that is thrust upon Avery and the boy she once loved as their lives endure endless days and weeks of a harsh brutality. Rome Montague is the surprise of the story as he wages his own battle for survival and yet will stop at nothing to make sure Avery stays alert and strong. There is so much at play as the heir apparent to the Capulet business and fortune rides on Avery's very being and whether or not she is strong enough to stave off those who want to destroy not only her body but her spirit as well. The spark of life that is the realization that no matter what had transpired in the past between Rome and Avery, that there is still that love that no amount of darkness can extinguish is its own miracle of sorts. Their minds may be deprived of awareness of what is around them during their uneasy and unsettled time together, but their hearts knew better. Despite all the anguish and despair, Rome and Avery are forever tethered and that glorious realization only makes them stronger. I loved watching as Avery became the Capulet her ailing father would be wildly proud of. There is clearly a new version of her after that fateful 25th birthday party and my hope is that this Avery can manage to find the balance she needs to live the life she wants. Of course, there are plenty of evil detours in the forms of the many well-written and detestable characters and I couldn't wait to turn the page to see what sort of mayhem they would thrust upon her next. Sure it was hard to watch and my stomach was in knots throughout. But like that car wreck on the side of the road, there is that insatiable need to look and once you do, you're not turning away. This story is intense and complicated and extremely addictive. Loyalty is put to the test and surprises abound as seemingly perfectly executed plans of revenge and control unravel in the most unexpected of ways. I am in awe of St. Germain's ability to tie all the loose ends together in a way that the reader can easily follow along when there are a multitude of moving parts. We are far from over as book 3, Violent Reign, will be here in February. I can only imagine what St. Germain has in store for us as the conclusion to this trilogy will undoubtedly throw me for a loop, albeit a truly enjoyable one, once more. If I could give Vengeful Queen 10 stars, I would. My mind is still spinning and for this reader, there is nothing better. A must read, this book is twisted perfection!

This Author knows how to deliver the shock factor in the most disturbing way, she never holds back and my Dark side loves and thanks her for it.  There were a few surprises I didn't expect in this story which were awesome, I was giddy with excitement. This book had all the craziness, the violence and the depravity I look for in a suspenseful dark read. It ticked all my boxes and I loved every minute. I have to say I have my eye on Father Mateo, he is one very interesting priest that's for sure. I need more of him.  I can't wait for Violent Reign because in true Lili style she has left us with another mind blowing cliffhanger that will leave your head spinning, your heart pumping and your butt clenching.👏

    This was so much more in depth compared to Vicious Prince. A lot more of character/story development as well as the continuing view points from Avery, Rome and Elliott.

    This book was a torpedo launched high-speed into life as I know it. Once I started, I could barely wrench myself away from it to do ordinary things.. you know? Like eat and sleep. Picking up exactly where Vicious Prince left off, we are thrust immediately back into the darkened basement world of horrors and torture. Escape seems impossible, and death feels imminent. But in the midst of so much hopelessness and devastation, a lost flicker of love manages to spark, and a second chance is offered, e This book was a torpedo launched high-speed into life as I know it. Once I started, I could barely wrench myself away from it to do ordinary things.. you know? Like eat and sleep. Picking up exactly where Vicious Prince left off, we are thrust immediately back into the darkened basement world of horrors and torture. Escape seems impossible, and death feels imminent. But in the midst of so much hopelessness and devastation, a lost flicker of love manages to spark, and a second chance is offered, even if its time seems limited. There’s so much in this book, so much that I can’t say because nobody likes spoilers, but more than that. So much I can’t say because you just have to experience it. It seems wrong to talk about character growth when you’re also discussing kidnapping, forced imprisonment, and all the ugly things that go along with that, but it’s true nonetheless. Avery especially, goes through such monumental growth through her ordeal. In less of a cocoon-butterfly sense, more of a blade forged in fire way. The girl born with a silver spoon in her mouth, who spent her first 25 years raging about the decisions made on her behalf, yet allowing them anyway, grows a spine of steel. And the bond that she and Rome develop is the stuff of romantic fantasies (save the torture). It was always going to end on a cliffhanger, and it didn’t disappoint. But the burning question on my brain now isn’t who, how, or why. It’s simply: WHAT NEXT?!

I'll start off by mentioning this series has some serious trigger warnings, including r*pe, torture, sexual harassment, violence, kidnapping. So please be aware. I won't lie, this is probably the darkest series I've ever read. I'm not usually for really dark romance, the ones I've read teeter on the edge of "dark", if they can even be called that. But despite the heavy themes in this book, I couldn't put it down. Avery and Rome, sworn family enemies, have been taken. Are they destined for tragedy? Forever doomed? This is a really dark spin/retelling of Romeo and Juliet, and we all know how that ends.... It was a constant "omg when will this end, what's going to happen to them". The suspense was top tier. Although, at times it felt like I was reading the same long, drawn out day again and again. However, I think that was the writer's intention. You could feel and experience the dreary, monotonous and almost hopelessness of the characters yourself. The charactersss: •☆• I love Rome Montague. He's so soft for Avery, but also a conflicted, tortured hero/antihero. I think we get a very good glimpse into Avery, her thoughts, personality, her life and her motives but I wish the book had delved a bit more into rome's background. Perhaps there'll be more of that in the last book. •☆•Their relationship... I've always shipped them. And I'm pleased with where this book took it but also so frustrated with it lol. This was a whole new kind of forbidden romance/ epic love/ captive story. I do wish we saw a bit more development between them tho. •☆•The side characters were also surprisingly interesting. We get another perspectives apart from the protagonists', and some seriously unexpected plot twists with some characters. I LOVED some...won't mention names and try to keep this spoiler free... but just when I think "ah I saw this coming, but also I didn't", we're hit with another twist. One thing I've learned, don't get too excited when what I want to happen, happens. It probably won't last😭. I had so many theories as I was reading this, some of which were answered, others (or most lol) I'll have to read till the finale. I can't wait. I'm nervous after that cliffhanger but I'm anticipating it so much. The hours I spent binge reading this were worth it.

I have just finished and that ending, the perfect fade to black moment that leaves you breathless, heart pounding, desperately flicking the kindle screen in the hope it’s just a glitch and there’s more... and there is thankfully coming so very soon! This is the second part in this modern retelling of Romeo and Juliet, with a couple of familiar faces and a nod to one of the best female characters I have every read. This story made me feel; tears streamed, I laughed and most of all I felt like I was floating in an endless sea with only the horizon to keep me focused. That’s the true talent of this author as I get lost within the pages, drowning in the rich prose that recreate I world I find myself lost within. Was this worth the wait? Hell yes. Go back read the first part if you feel it’s been too long, a good book can never be read too many times. This story is sinful, with betrayal and deception at almost every turn, the problem of being next in line is that it paints a very large target on your back. Avery and Rome realise what matters most to them as the sands of time seem to be running out for them... A fantastic blood soaked, power hungry read. ~*~ Reviewed on the Behalf of Obsessed by Books ~*~

    Oh my word! First off I must say though the wait on this book was long, it was well worth it. Rome and Averys story is full of angst and twists. It was fun to see familiar characters from other stories, though now I think I’ll need to go reread them so I’m fresh on who’s who. I cannot wait for the third book in this series.

Avery is everything we hope we could be when faced with things that are ultimately terrifying. Again, well worth the wait. My two cents for all the one starers, authors are human. They have good days and bad, feelings, families that have issues, and lives that sometimes don’t go the way they planned. I don’t know Ms. St Germain personally, but I do know what it’s like to need a mental health break, to step back and take a minute. Most of us do. I see this happen a lot with authors, someone gets upset that a release day was moved, or suspended, and their “love” for an author takes a nosedive. When someone says you find out who your friends are when you’re down on your luck, FYI they’re talking about all of you leaving a one star over a deadline. Thank you Lili for another wonderful story, for allowing me to leave my world and get lost in one you create for a little while.

    Wow....definitely worth the wait!!! If you have triggers this book probably isn’t for you because dayuuuum that was intense. Rome and Avery end up in the XO killers clutches and he has help. This is a twisted story from start to finish that I couldn’t put down. Rome is a criminal through no fault of his own and Avery was the one who got him sent to jail. He becomes her lifeline in that prison. The twists and turns this book took are crazy and I didn’t expect the ending even though there were clu Wow....definitely worth the wait!!!

Can’t wait to read the next book and see what happens. So much is left to chance. Will the XO killer take both of them again? Will Rome be able to save Avery? So many questions I need answers to! Definitely a must read for anyone who likes twisted love stories. Fantastic writing Lili can’t wait for the next book!!!

    If book 1 was anything to go on, Vengeful Queen will be an incredible read, I’m sure it will be well worth the wait
