Wrath & Rain Series by Nikki St Crowe

Emoji Review by Rebecca Dixon

I finished reading Wrath and Rain Series Book 1, 2, AND 3 by Nikki St Crowe and it was a GREAT ๐Ÿคฉ, LEAN, MODERN, & STEAMY ๐Ÿ”ฅ Enemies-to-lovers, PNR! (FYI, Iโ€™m not affiliated with the author, not in the book biz, reading is just a HOBBY, and Iโ€™m just a regular reader that is super passionate ๐Ÿ’— about spreading the word on GREAT books!) There are NO spoilers ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป!

So the FIRST ๐Ÿ‘†๐Ÿป thing to mention hereโ€ฆ that EVERYONE always asks ๐Ÿ˜…โ€ฆ is it a COMPLETED series?! Why YES, yes it is ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป! Iโ€™ve been reading A LOT of Nikki St. Crowe books lately and I have to tell you, this lady KNOWS how to HOOK ๐Ÿช you (no PUN intended for her other series, The Never King ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜) โ€ฆ so yeah, she HOOK’s ๐Ÿช you from the beginning and gives you a FAST-PACED ๐Ÿš˜ story that is detailed enough to have you book BINGE, but LEAN enough (and short enough!) that it isnโ€™t a major commitment of time ๐Ÿ•ฐ ! You literally can knock out ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿป ANY of her books or series on either a Sunday afternoon โ˜€๏ธ or a weekend ๐ŸŒด ! And for someone who is a software engineer by day and have BLURRY ๐Ÿ˜ตโ€๐Ÿ’ซ eyes by night ๐ŸŒ™ , this is EXACTLY ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป the type of books I prefer! So if you LOVE โค๏ธ to page-turn a fabulous, STEAMY ๐Ÿ”ฅ paranormal romance and donโ€™t want to commit WEEKS-ON-END ๐Ÿ˜ฉ to a MASSIVE series, her books are IDEAL ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป (Chefโ€™s kiss ๐Ÿ’‹ ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹!)

OK โœ…! So THIS series ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!! It kicks ๐Ÿฆต off in a world ๐ŸŒŽ like ours where The Demon King ๐Ÿ‘น has made his presence known in a pretty DRAMATIC ๐ŸŽญ way (by kicking the g0vernmentโ€™s HINEY ๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜…!) So it starts with our girl, Rain ๐ŸŒง (yep her Momโ€™s name is Sunny โ˜€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜† ,) who is JUST trying to make ends meet in life & has gone OUT OF HER WAY to IGNORE ๐Ÿ™„ everything on TV/Instagram/TikTok/F-B (you name it!) about this HOT ๐Ÿฅต, SEX-A-FALISH ๐Ÿ† Demon King! She will NOT be just one of the thousands of DROOLING ๐Ÿคค fans, DANGNAMMIT ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜‚! Which is all FINE & DANDY until one day she runs ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ into him in an alley and finds out that even though SHE may NOT want to be one of the thousandsโ€ฆ she canโ€™t do a DANG thing about being the ONLY one in the THOUSANDS that HE pays attention toโ€ฆ. ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ๐Ÿ”ฅ

RIGHT! So SERIOUSLY, off the bat I was hooked!!! This is a GREAT ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป story set in the modern world and itโ€™s super COOL ๐Ÿ˜Ž that the cat ๐Ÿฑ is out of the bag (i.e., everyone knows about The Demon King ๐Ÿคด!) I love that it has MODERN ๐Ÿ“ฑ technology and has a SUPER neat, unique plotline that I havenโ€™t read anything really similar to (which is saying A LOT with how much THIS ๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ girl reads ๐Ÿ˜†!)

This IS an enemies-to-lovers trope ๐Ÿฅท โž• ๐Ÿ’˜! And oh boy, itโ€™s just the RIGHT amount of YUMMY ๐Ÿ˜‹ ! Wrath is a VILLIAN, but we pretty much immediately LOVE โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ this guy from the get-go & instead, want to SMACK ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿป the you-know-what out of Rain on occasion ๐Ÿ˜…! But hey, KEEP READING if you feel the same way I did because TRUST ME ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป, it doesnโ€™t take long for situations to COME TOGETHER ๐Ÿฅต & for the pretty great STEAM ๐Ÿ”ฅ that Nikki is famous forโ€ฆ to KICK-IN ๐Ÿฆต ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป!!

This author KNOWS ๐Ÿ’ก how to write โœ๏ธ that romantic ANGST โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ leading up to some pretty HOT ๐Ÿ”ฅ STEAM and she DOESNโ€™T disappoint in this series ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป! If you LOVE โค๏ธโ€๐Ÿ”ฅ Bran in Hot Vampire Next Door ๐Ÿฉธ or Peter Pan/The Lost Boys in The Never King ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ โ€ฆ your gonna LEGIT LOVE Wrath!!!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป He is HOT ๐Ÿฅต HOT ๐Ÿฅต HOT ๐Ÿฅต! All possessive, controlling, but likeโ€ฆ a SWEETHEART ๐Ÿ’˜ underneath it all! Heโ€™s got some MAD game in the bedroom ๐Ÿ›Œ department (or shall I say rooftop ๐Ÿ™ department?!) ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ And donโ€™t get me started on his sub-dimensional travellingโ€ฆ I FREAKING love BADA$S ๐Ÿคบ POWERFUL ๐Ÿ’ฅ MMCs that basically show up WHENEVER and WHEREVER the HELL they want for THEIR girl! Every time this guy found Rain, I was likeโ€ฆ. yesssssss ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป here we go ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป!!! Annnnd I love โค๏ธ, love โค๏ธ, love โค๏ธ a FMC that is likeโ€ฆ oh yeah?!? You plan to keep me here ๐Ÿ˜ ?! Ummm.. thatโ€™s a big fat Hellllllll NO buddy!!!โ€ฆ soโ€ฆ C-YA ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿป! (meanwhile our guyโ€™s standing there with a deer-in-the-headlights look ๐Ÿ˜ณ while our girl is peacing out โ˜ฎ๏ธ by outwitting him with her escape ๐Ÿƒ๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚!)

The other thing that I really LOVED ๐Ÿฅฐ about this seriesโ€ฆ that I donโ€™t usually get to talk about in reviews (since they are usually just for a SINGLE book ๐Ÿ“• and not the WHOLE series ๐Ÿ“š )โ€ฆ is this series actually had a GREAT ๐Ÿ˜Š message underneath it all! Really EMPOWERING ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป and there are definitely some PARALLELS to how HEALTHY, real-world romantic relationships SHOULD function. Which, is a pretty IMPRESSIVE ๐Ÿ˜ฎ feat since this is an enemies-to-lovers trope! Seriously! You get to the end and your likeโ€ฆ OK that was a really FUN ๐Ÿคฉ ride, with GREAT steam ๐Ÿ”ฅ, a HOT ๐Ÿฅต MMC, a COOL ๐Ÿ˜Ž storyโ€ฆ but likeโ€ฆ a really FANTASTIC message ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป! I DIDNโ€™T see that coming actually and at one point I was likeโ€ฆ ughhhh NOOOOOO why did that happen to our boy ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ˜ฉโ€ฆ. But just hang on โ€ฆ it will ALL MAKE SENSE ๐Ÿ’กโ€ฆ and it was WELL WORTH IT! Really FREAKING cool! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

I usually write reviews once I finish a single book, but with this series, I just read book after book after book! (thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป thank you ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป Nikki for writing a series that I could literally digest over a weekend โ˜€๏ธ and binge the heck out of!) There were great CLIFFHANGERS ๐Ÿชจ that just kept me page-turning right into the NEXT ๐Ÿ‘‰๐Ÿป book! And I kept thinking Iโ€™ll write that review later, because likeโ€ฆ I need to read the next book NOW! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†

And nowโ€ฆ for my SHAMELSS ๐Ÿ˜ BEGGING ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป moment to the author (the AMAZING ๐Ÿคฉ & FABULOUS ๐Ÿ’‹ Nikki St. Crowe!)โ€ฆ GIRL! You KNOW you LEFT the ending of Book 3 a PERFECT ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป combo of a satisfying HEA and at the same timeโ€ฆ the PERFECT ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป SEGWAY to 3 MORE books, right !?! ๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜† We NEED more Wrath & Reign (ooopsโ€ฆtypo ๐Ÿ˜…โ€ฆ RAIN ๐ŸŒง !) and Iโ€™m salivating at what could happen in the next realm ๐ŸŒŽ (errrrโ€ฆ I mean book ๐Ÿ“• ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜†!)

So if you LOVE a series you can knock out ๐Ÿคœ๐Ÿป quickly, that is LEAN & MODERN ๐Ÿ“ฑ , has HOT STEAM ๐Ÿ”ฅ and a HOT ๐Ÿฅต HOT ๐Ÿฅต HOT ๐Ÿฅต MMC, is enemies-to-lovers with a cool ๐Ÿ˜Ž & unique story, and has a GREAT ๐Ÿฅฐ message at the endโ€ฆ this is Free on KU! Give it a shot! You never know, it may be just the series to add a little bit of sunshine โ˜€๏ธ to your REIGNy ๐ŸŒง weekend!
