“Stolen Heir” is the dark and gothic second act of the “Brutal Birthright” series. It’s a stand-alone Enemies to Lovers Romance, complete with HEA and no cliffhangers. It contains blazing hot bedroom scenes for mature readers only!!!

This review may contain spoilers, so fair warning, upon reading the review.

Stolen Heir is the second book in the Brutal Birthright series and I had such a blast with this book to be honest. It was so amazing. Now it wasn’t quite a five-star read for me, but a solid four-star. I think I was a bit burned from reading the first book and I think the anxiety just kept me from enjoying this fully as I desired to. However, despite my reservations on this one, I had such a fun time with this one here. And man I can’t refuse a wonderful fairy tale retelling especially one in the dark romance (mafia) genre. Ironically you don’t see a captive kidnapping set up in a mafia romance very often (or I haven’t—most of the time its arranged marriages you will see the most) So I definitely got a kick out of reading this one because it was so entertaining, edge of your seat fun and a solid retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

I really was swept away by this story and I didn’t want to put this one down at all. I really enjoyed the angst level between these two and all the connections to the actual fairy tale with a delicious mafia twist to it. I actual understood the hero here, I mean the man he viewed and loved like a father was murdered so I get his reasons for revenge. But this heroine is so sweet and I adored her character so much. Especially after dealing with the heroine in book one, she was like a breath of fresh air. I found they had such beautiful chemistry and the story was written so well here. I really liked seeing all the plot dynamics that the author implemented and the way this couple had to fight for each other in the end and what the hero was willing to do for his lady. And we see so much strength and resilience from her (way more than I expected) and really was impressed with seeing her have a different kind of strength that is not the norm.

Overall I had a blast with this one here and I am looking forward to reading more from this author and seeing what she implements with this family.
