CLAIMED ROYALTY by Betty Shreffler #AvailableNow

HEATH by K Webster & Nikki Ash @KristiWebster @AuthorNikkiAsh @IndieSagePR #newrelease #mustread #review #nowavailable #unratedbookshelf

This isn’t a typical love story. This a story of what happens when love is so powerful and all-consuming that it has the ability to destroy everyone involved. It’s definitely not pretty and it’s certainly not a fairytale, but it’s their story and it couldn’t be told any other way. 
Purchase: Amazon
“It’s sad that love could breed so much hate.”
This book was fantastic—and addictive, and angsty as all hell! It’s a modern retelling of one of the greatest classic books of all time, and it retells it beautifully. It respects the original story, but also manages to stand out completely on its own. It tosses in little Easter eggs from Brontë, but also other places, which made my nerdy little heart all giddy, and it keeps everything unique enough that it’s more than a story, it’s an experience. You do not have to read the original story to enjoy this one, though I highly recommend you do that if you haven’t. 
This book doesn’t just tell the love story of one, it tells the love story of many. It gives you every possible ending from happy to devastating. Not all love stories are happy, or are even felt at both ends. This story covers generations of love, lust, betrayal, revenge, longing, and heartbreak. EVERY emotion will make an appearance, and sometimes all at the same time. There are so many layers and depth to this book that you will leave feeling both physically and emotionally exhausted. 
I loved this book, and would consider it an absolute must read. I would recommend it without hesitation, and I would recommend it to everyone over the age of 18. Not all modern retellings succeed, but this book hits every mark flawlessly.
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
