About the author:

Amo Jones is a small country girl totally winging this author thing (she's probably doing it all wrong). She likes cake, loves wine, and her religion is magic. She's a profound work-a-holic, but when she's not writing, you can find her chilling with her kids & partner at the nearest beach, with a cocktail in her hand.
New Zealand is not a state of Australia and rugby is the best sport ever played.

My review:

Where should I start… First of all, ignore my rating because I had no idea how many stars I should give this book. It was an up and down of good and not so good parts and I tried to find a middle ground somewhere between 3 and 4.
'This is The Elite Kings in full form.'
This book had a different feel to it, or maybe I've just forgotten all about the stuff that happened before. I couldn't wrap my head around how otherworldly it all sometimes felt. There wasn't anything impossible for the characters and the Kings' power and wealth reminded me somewhat of the mafia. It was all so easy for them to handle and some things didn’t make any sense to me and felt somewhat weird but that's something I'm almost already used to with Amo’s books.
'I had witnessed too many things tonight. Things that I could not explain, and things I'm not entirely sure that I wanted to explain, but I couldn't hide or run from the fact that it was all there, in front of me. As bright as the glittering stars in the sky.'
As always Mad's did whatever the hell she wanted and now nobody put a stop to it. The King's weren't as ruthless and dangerous anymore but felt all like a reverse harem to Mad's. I really did not like how the Kings were all so drawn to Madison from the start but it even got weirder here and I really missed the twisted games and fucking around from the first book. It was like Mad's suddenly became the sun to all of them and they now only gravitated around her. While this was also the issue in the second book, I'd really hoped it would change in this one.
'I messed up, he messed up, we're both sort of just messed up, and I don't know how to get through our bullshit.'
My annoyance of Madison wasn’t anything new because I wasn’t really a fan of her from the beginning but she now was a real plague. I didn’t understand how a girl could be so frustrating but loved by all the men. One second she wanted all of the King guys and messed around with who knows who and the next she regretted everything and only wanted Bishop no matter how angry she was only minutes ago because of whatever he did or didn’t do. Bishop was another story entirely because he could give as good as Mad’s. Madison was selfish and only cared about herself, she jumped from one thing and guy to the other which nearly gave me whiplash from trying to keep up with her. She was just so messed up and never stopped for a second to think about her actions.
'How can I hate someone and love them, and want to kill them, and need to fuck them, all at the same time? It's Bishop voodoo.'
To be honest, I was slightly disappointed in this book because although on one hand I was glad to get a catch up from the previous books, I didn't need as much of a repeat as I got in this book. For most of the time it felt like there wasn't much happening and when it came to the big showdown everything was over and done with way too fast. It not only felt rushed but it mostly felt like huge and important parts were missing. Not in the sense that stuff got cut out but that a lot just wasn't picked up on with sufficient details and I was disappointed because I know the author can do better as she's shown us many times before.
'My life was an information dictionary and I was constantly being fed the unedited version that had to continue to be revised and changed.'
The story wasn't particularly dragging but it was drawn out sometimes and a bit flat, because thinking back there was not much going on especially in the first half of the book and I believe it would have been a lot better if book two and three were made into one book.
'My life was so messed up. Just when I thought I had something good going, something else was thrown from the left field.'
There were some answers in this book but obviously not enough and the ending didn't give a lot of closure but was really kinda open since there will be more books coming in this series. So, while I thought that it’s ok to leave stuff open for their story to go on, I had hoped that it would at least feel somewhat more like an ending of Bishop's and Madison’s chapter instead of just stopping.
I don't want to give anything away but there was a little peek at the end of the book of where the story will lead us and I’m very excited for the other boys' stories.
'I was a junkie chasing my next high, and just hoping, that this wasn't the time I overdoes on a love so toxic, and so far out of my reach, that I would damn near kill myself just to know how it feels one last time.'
Having said all that I can't say that I didn't like the book as I still enjoyed it a lot because it was captivating enough and some scenes were as awesome, gripping and thrilling as I'd have liked the entire book to be.
'As graceful as a floating swan, but as deadly as a silver bullet.'
PS: I loved Daemon and that will never change despite his obvious problem.
'”The amo, frater.”'
