Three villains and a lady!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🌎🌍🌏🌎🌏
Character development: 😳🤬😏🤓☺️
The heroine: Landry Croft – she lives in a gilded cage. Landry is the perfect daughter of tech billionaire Alexander Croft. Her mother died not long after giving birth to her 6 year old sister Della, who is deaf. Landry tries to take care of Della and keep her father from getting too angry.
The Hero(es): Sully, Sparrow and Scout Mannford – Triplets who grew up with wealth, their mother was a prominent plastic surgeon until Winston Constantine found patients that were not happy with their results and put her in jail. Sully saw his Harvard dreams go down the drain after the three brothers made of mess of things by messing with their stepsister Ash. Winston Constantine, got back at them by destroying their dreams and shooting each of them in the knee (Scout in both knees). Sparrow likes his suits, his car and the perks they get from working for their cousin Bryant Morelli. Scout is more than a bit psychotic and still somewhat obsessed with Ash.
The Story: Alexander Croft thinks it is time he takes someone under his wing. He picks Ty Constantine and wants his daughter Landry to marry Ty in order to keep his fortune in the family as well as to build bridges between the Constantines and the Crofts. However Bryant Morelli lives to mess with the Constantines and has the triplets get involved in the life of Landry Croft in order to mess up that plan.
This is the story of the triplets from Skyskraper Cinderella. They were the evil triplets in that book, but right from the start in this one, we feel for them since they got their whole lives taken from them and are now stuck under Bryant Morelli’s thumb. Though I know they deserved what they got, I couldn’t wait to see if they redeem themselves in this series.
The triplets each get to know Landry but she only knows them as one person named Ford Mann. Though each of the brothers has his own quirks and acts a bit differently. Scout is still obsessed with their ex stepsister Ash, while Sully and Sparrow are wary of him.
“Our stepsister was supposed to be a game. We were to toy with her. Scout’s obsession changed everything. It took us to levels in a game we had no business playing.”
“If he were to zero in on Landry the way he did with Ash, it could fuck everything up. Last time nearly cost us our lives.”
I really enjoyed this book and the way the brothers each dove into Landry’s life in different ways. It was very original and I liked them despite the fact that they are not good guys. They make very likable villains. I also liked the fact that they were still villains or anti-hero’s since they were so bad in Skyscraper Cinderella it wouldn’t have been believable for them to just change into Hero’s in this book. The cliffhanger is a good one and I can’t wait to read more.
I voluntarily read & reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts & opinions are my own.
