Hello friends! Today I have my book review of

Gypsy Rising, by Kristy Cunning.

Gypsy Rising is the fifth book in the All The Pretty Monsters series.

Trigger Warnings: Sex, Whippings.

That old song plays in my head, as the world turns around me faster than it has ever turned.

Monsters and mayhem. That’s become my life.

Fear and apprehension. That’s become the normal for those around me.

Dread and distraction. That’s what has interrupted my own personal romance story with my mon-star quad.

Vengeance and retribution. That was the theme of the monster world long before I landed in it, and it’s starting to heat up more than ever.

Jabs from a complicated, ancient past keep coming so much and so quickly that I’ve grown desensitized to them. Which is a good thing, since I’m about to need a thick skin.

I guess it’s time to see if I can handle being in the middle, because that’s where I’m about to put myself. My mother always did accuse me of being a masochist. I’m starting to think she must be right.

Either they love me, or they love her.

I suppose it’s time to find out who wins. I don’t fight pretty, and I’m not that great at smack talk.

It’s not that they’re not worth fighting for. I just don’t want to have to fight for them. Not when when I’m fighting bigger battles already. Either we’re in this together, or I’m on my own. That’s for them to decide on their own.

Let the games begin.

**Reverse Harem Series
**Sexual content
**Dark humor
**Mature language warning

From GoodReads [x]:

“REVERSE HAREM” IS, LITERALLY, THE OPPOSITE OF “HAREM”, WITH A GROUP OF MALES CENTERING ROUND A SINGULAR FEMALE, USUALLY WITH THREE OR MORE MALES. QUITE OFTEN FOUND UNDER THE ROMANCE GENRE.

I tried to keep my excitement about Gypsy Rising to a minimum since by the time that I read the 6th book, it wasn’t/isn’t even out yet. 

In terms of the story, there was sooooo much that happened. I loved the gaps that happened within the first half of Gypsy Rising. Like, I can’t even complain because what took place between the gap times was just so, incredibly great read.

Yet through the rest of the book there was, again, so freaking much plot that took place within Gypsy Rising. I absolutely loved how sneaky Violet had been. Though it infuriates me immensely how oblivious the guys were–which left Violet to be able scheme and get her to do her bidding. 

I can’t believe that this fifth book feels like it has had the most happen to it, storyline wise. 

The ending is getting to me and I have only one Big Question: HOW?!

I’m so glad that Gypsy Rising is a thing, and what happened, had happened to be honest. I know, I knooooow that last sentence was entirely vague. It has to be vague because I seriously don’t want to spoil anything. 

I give Gypsy Rising, 4 stars.

Have you read Gypsy Rising? Did you enjoy it? 

Now that I’ve read (and enjoyed) Gypsy Rising, I simply cannot wait until the 6th (and final) book in the All The Pretty Monsters series. Not with the way that Gypsy Rising ended.

Thank you for stopping by!

See you soon, and Happy Reading!
