Book Review: Defiance of Heart by Monica James


For never was there a story of more woe than that of Holland Brooks and her Romeo…41068413

For as long as I can remember, London Sinclair was the boy who was forbidden. It didn’t matter that he made my heart skip a beat. Our surnames fated us to be sworn, enemies. But when the truth was finally revealed, my life changed forever.

Lies have shaped our past, leaving London and me to pick up the pieces. But through the chaos, one thing is certain—I love London, and he loves me, and we won’t allow anyone to tear us apart again.

However, life has a funny way of proving us wrong.

As we attempt to make amends for the past ten years, we soon discover that the ghosts of our past will do anything to drive us apart. We are once again surrounded by deceit and betrayal, testing us in ways we never imagined.

When I’m faced with a proposition to end this heartache once and for all, I blindly agree. That decision changes everything, and I soon learn that those who act in haste create their own destruction.

Does love really triumph all? Or will London and I succumb to what was always written in the stars?


*I received an advanced copy of the book in exchange for honest review*

This book was a such a rollercoaster ride! Lots of action, lots of romance and a fantastic ending.

I was so excited to start this book and find out what was going to happen with Holland and London after that huge cliffhanger at the end of Absinth of the Heart. The story literally picks up from how things were left from the last book and from then on its drama, drama, drama and I mean that in a good way I was on the edge of my seat right to the end.

Holland is even more of badass in this book, I love her feistiness, she took everything head-on. London really won me over with what a great guy he is. Then we have Lincoln… a real slimeball of a character, one of those ones who you can’t wait for them to have their comeuppance, and when he finally did get what he deserved it was so satisfying!

Overall I really enjoyed this story and thought it was ending to it but I would love to have had an epilogue.

My Rating 4/5 🌟🌟🌟🌟
