Read the summary and add this book on Goodreads: here
This was quite a ride. I didn’t like Ancel at first and, to be honest, I didn’t remember him well from Captive Prince. I did remember that twisted scene and now with this behind the scenes, it’s still as twisted as I remembered, but with a somewhat reason as to why it came to be.
Ancel’s growth throughout the book made me like him a little bit better. He’s immature, selfish and self-centered. He doesn’t want to be poor so he’s doing whatever he can do to ensure himself a life as a rich man’s pet. He went from zero to hero, and his story is not boring. Everything he does to make people bid on him is degrading but he has the eyes on the goal and nothing will make him back up. Or so he thinks.
These short stories have been perfect to see the characters we loved and hated from someone else’s point of view. Will there be more? I sure hope so.
