✱✱Book Review✱✱ Smoke and Mirrors: A Dark Space Romance by Evie Kent

 


A story about a pretty king of a pretty planet.
Who loathes the crown, but loves his new queen.
Who yearns for violence and pain, but settles for flowers and filigree.
Who does his duty.
Who protects his treasure.
Who worships his bride with a rough hand and a brutal kiss.
Who doesn’t realize he’s been tricked—and is about to lose it all.

Smoke and Mirrors is a standalone dark romance set in space about kindred spirits finding each
other in the unlikeliest of places. More space opera than sci-fi. 18+ for violence, gore, and heat.



Momma Says: 4 stars⭐⭐⭐⭐

Books set in space are not usually something I read. In fact, I can probably count on one hand how many I've read in the past several years. Needless to say, it's not really in my wheelhouse. That said, Evie Kent (along with her other pen names) is very much in my wheelhouse, so when she wrote what she says is more space opera and humans than sci-fi, I jumped in with both feet. And as usual with this author, it didn't take long before I was caught up in this world. Just from past experience, I expected dark romance with plenty of steam, some violence, and maybe a bloody battle or two, and at least one or two knock your socks off twists. And Evie Kent delivered on all of that. Even when I suspected something and got it right, this author takes it just that much further to still keep me guessing.
And that's as far as I'm going so I don't give anything away. What I will say is if you enjoy the genre, this is one you should check out. And if you're like me, this is a pretty good choice for stepping outside the box.
