❝ Revenge may be sweet, but it comes with a bitter aftertaste.❞
Volatile Love is book two in the Gilded Sovereign Series by Dani René. We started off this series with Cruel War which was AHH-MAZING! Although Volatile Love is a part of a series, it CAN be read as standalone. BUT with that being said, it is SOO much better reading the books in order! In Cruel War, we met quite a few characters, and two of those amazing characters were Etienne Durand and Rukaiya Harrison. Told in dual POV, you are not going to want to miss their story! Questions are answered, and even more secrets are unraveled. We are going back into the Gilded Sovereign!
Volatile Love picks up where Cruel War left off.
❝ I’ll find her.
And when I do, I’m taking her back to where she belongs—Tynewood.❞
Dahlia’s best friend Rukaiya is missing. After everything went down with Abner Rukaiya’s father, Fergus, took off with Rukaiya and they have both disappeared from Tynewood.
When the guys find out that Rukaiya and her father are in London, Etienne is on the first plane there. Etienne knows there has to be more to the story of her father’s involvement with the Sovereign and he is determined to locate her.
❝ The world was my oyster; I had everything I could dream of, until the moment she walked into my town, challenging me with every conversation I attempted, and then she disappeared without a trace. And that’s why I find myself in London— a world away from Tynewood— to find the beauty who’s caused my insanity.❞
Only things don’t go over as smoothly as he hoped once he gets there…
Etienne wants to be Rukaiya’s knight in shining armor but Rukaiya doesn’t need nor want his help. She’s been taking care of herself for a long time and is determined to keep it that way. So she continues pushing Etienne away in hopes to save him instead.
❝ Stop trying to save me, Etienne. I’m not a damsel, I don’t need a knight in shining armor.❞
As more secrets are brought to light Rukaiya is learning more and more about Fergus’s association with the Sovereign and just how truly awful of a man he is. But Fergus has plans for Rukaiya, and he isn’t going to let her go easily…
❝ Fear keeps us prisoner in the one place we need to escape.❞
Whether Rukaiya likes it or not, Etienne isn’t going anywhere until she’s safe and back with him in Tynewood where she belongs.
But what happens when ghosts from the past come back to haunt them…?
❝ I’m lost to the truth. And it’s brutal, raw, and volatile. Just like love.❞
Gahh this series, this book, these characters! Filled with mystery, lies, suspense, betrayal, deceit, and passion I was HOOKED from the beginning to the end! There are secrets galore and every time you think you are closer to unraveling things, BOOM! There are three more secrets taking its place!
Same as with Cruel War, the secondary characters add so much MORE to the story. Dani René has created a dark and twisted world within this town and these characters. With each story, the secondary characters’ are being developed so that when it’s time for THEIR story, we are already in love with them. I loved the scenes where Etienne and Rukaiya were hanging out with Ares and Dahlia, it was a nice little catch up with the two of them. And I REALLY loved the scene between Tarian and Rukaiya when he was about to get in his car (if you read the book you’ll know what I’m talking about 😉) that was a nice little look inside of him and GAHHH I can NOT wait for his story!
❝ Are you always so volatile?❞
❝ Only when I’m in love.❞
After reading Cruel War, I saw Etienne as the funny one; the joker; the playboy. He’s actually far more complex than I gave him credit for. Etienne is hard to explain but I love his smart mouth and his cocky little smirk and I adored how protective he was of Rukaiya. He was determined to save his little wolf, whether she wanted him to or not. We see a completely different side to him in Volatile Love and once he gets his girl, he’s never letting her go.
❝ Don’t ever think you can run, because once I’ve made my mind up, there is no escaping me.❞
We only got a small glimpse of who Rukaiya was in book one, it mainly focused on her friendship with Dahlia. But this time around, we learn things about her that I never expected. Rukaiya isn’t the fragile, naive girl she appears to be. She’s resilient and she knows what she has to do to protect herself. I never imagined she went through everything she went through as a child. In Cruel War, I had a different impression of the kind of person her father, Fergus, was… I was wrong. My heart broke for Rukaiya and the things she went through, all the while remaining as strong as she is. Yeah, Rukaiya is most definitely one of my favorite characters from this series.
❝ You’re a predator, little wolf. I’m merely your prey tonight,❞
In Cruel War, you could see the attraction between these two so I already knew that when they FINALLY came together it was going to be EXPLOSIVE! Both of them were so damn stubborn that it took a bit for them to get it together, but when they did René definitely didn’t let me down as far as the steam factor goes!
❝ They don’t call me the god of love for nothing, little wolf,❞
Dani René has done it again with Volatile Love. She has created this amazing dark and twisted secret world that I am completely obsessed with. I don’t know how she does it but she continues to pull me into this world with only her words. I can’t get enough of this series and these characters and I am not so patiently waiting for the next book!
❝ There are no happy families in Tynewood, all that’s left are the scars of lies and deception from the past.❞
That ending… *SIGH*. Let me just tell you that Tarian’s story is up next and throughout Volatile Love, his book was set up PERFECTLY. Although some questions were answered and some secrets were revealed, the plot is getting thicker and there is still a whole lot of mystery and deceit surrounding the Sovereign and I am on the edge of my seat, counting down the days until the release of book three, ED!
If you read Cruel War then I don’t have to tell you that you NEED to read Volatile Love and if you haven’t then what are you waiting for?! Mystery, lies, suspense, betrayal, deceit, and passion, what more could you ask for?! I highly recommend Volatile Love as well as Cruel War, MUST READ!
