4 Heart Review by Ashley
Two things I love...soccer and a man with an accent. And Carrie Aarons gave me both in The Lion Heart. While this is the first book I've read in the Rogue Academy, it read as a complete standalone.
I liked Poppy a whole heck of a lot. She was strong willed, hard working and kind. But not afraid to put her foot down. Case in point, her first handful of interactions with Kingston. I'm not gonna lie- it took me a hot minute to warm up to Kingston. He was a player in more than one way. But underneath all that cocksure bravado and swagger was a lonely heart of gold.
Le Sigh. There was something so endearing about these enemies-to-lovers. The banter, The pranks. I liked seeing these two with vastly different backgrounds and work ethics find common ground. It took them a good while to get there but the tension and anticipation were well worth the wait.
I enjoyed Kingston and Poppy's journey- every painful part of it (and yes some things were hard to swallow- but handled with the care they deserved). The Lion Heart is friendship and family, passion and purpose. Doing what's right, not just what is expected and easy. And the ending Carrie Aarons gave Poppy and Kingston left me with a grin on my face.
About the Author
Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.
When she isn't writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and Lab/Great Dane rescue.
