REVIEW ➞ Kingdom Come by Aleatha Romig


They say the price of freedom is learning that you have nothing left to lose.

There was a time when I had it all. Money. Power. Love. And in the blink of an eye, it was gone.

Along the road to my new life, I have a chance meeting with Cecilia Abernathy. Born to greatness, this American princess is out of my league. That doesn’t mean I don’t see her for the woman she is behind the headlines. In a rare glimpse I see not only her outward beauty but her inner determination. I’m moved by her in ways I don’t allow myself to ponder.

Time passes and I’m moving forward, persevering beyond my loss, and making a new name for myself. And then I’m given an assignment.

One job.
One quest.

If I succeed, my kingdom will be at hand.
If I fail, there will be no more chances.

Men like me aren’t saviors, and that isn’t my assignment. My mission is to find the daughter of one of the most powerful men in New York, in the country, and maybe the world. Find her and deliver her to her family’s rival.

Cecilia Abernathy has been kidnapped. All I have to do is exchange her current hell for another. And then I can walk away and claim my reward.

Has my taste of freedom made me willing to sell my soul for a kingdom?

Find out the answer in KINGDOM COME, a dangerous forced-proximity stand-alone romance by New York Times bestselling author Aleatha Romig.

I saw a beautifully damaged soul and I couldn’t fight my desire to make his world better.


Kingdom Come is addictive, captivating, full of twits and turns and it had me on the edge of my seat! I loved every single second of this book.

Greyson is a mysterious man and a dangerous man. Yet, there is so much more to his story and to him as a person. The more you get to know the character the more you fall in love for him. Despite him thinking he is a monster and not a hero, he is a hero to Cecilia. I absolutely loved Cecilia from the start. She isn’t a weak character, she can definitely handle things on her own and she does at times. She is a fighter and has no problem speaking the truth.

I loved the connection that Greyson and Cecilia formed. They both needed each other in a way. They were forced together and forced to learn to trust each other, but they never fought anything that was between them. They kept each other alive and safe. When things got rough they didn’t give up on hope either.

From the first to the last page there were twists and turns in this story. Tons of secrets and hidden agendas on all sides. It is the perfect mixture of dark, suspense and there is no shortage of steam.

If you’re looking for a dark romantic suspense this is one to read!
