While I was online window shopping (well adding to my ever increasing wish list) I came across Royal Blood and the synopsis really intrigued me. So you can imagine my excitement when a book tour sign up came days later for that book I knew I had to get on that tour and I did. Mark my words this will be a Tik Tok made me and be on top of a lot of readers favourite books of 2023 and that includes me.
Meet Evan Bright who is quite a main character and this is all I am saying. I know no fair but you should really read this book for yourself but I will say is you are going to be on quite a ride. I felt like I was on rollercoaster ride. There were so many twists and turns it made me dizzy and omg the ending and I am left hanging cheers Aimee tut . For all these reasons I am giving Royal Blood 5 stars
