Doyenne-complete“I don’t know what it’s like to feel.
To hurt.

The ability was stolen from me in my youth.
I consider that theft a gift.

Feelings got in the way when you were building an empire.
Amassing power.

I had the empire.
I had the power.

One moment in an alley changed everything.

What took over a decade to amass was snatched away in a second.

He killed for me.

But he didn’t save me.

This was an intimidating book for me.

We start off with a main character, a girl who grew herself into the empire of her dreams. She’s the killer of her goals, the strength of women, and the epiphany of fierceness. Her tight control over her life has brought her to the top.

At least until she meets a steamy stranger whose chaos clashes with her.

doyenne-teaser2This story was the definition of dark with all the pain and raw emotion we experience with her. The couple embraces the darkness of each other and begin to thrive on it.

The only thing that I wasn’t a huge fan of was how the plot felt pretty slow to me. I loved the characters and the vibes of their world, but it was a struggle to get through the entire book when I didn’t find too much going on.

I enjoyed the attraction between the two and their charged vibes. They lean on each other to come through their loses and damages.

I gave this one 3 out of 5 stars. It is a book that stays with you for awhile after putting it down. I do recommend this one if you are looking for a darker connection between characters and their unpredictable emotions.
