Royal Blood (Royal Blood #1) by Amity Cross

Rating: 5 Stars

I have no words. This book was everything that it promised and so much more. Amity has really out done herself with Royal Blood. I loved every single minute reading it.

It was dark and gritty and really showed you the darker side of life that some people live or are forced to live. Take the authors warning seriously. There are no hearts, flowers and happy unicorn lovers in this story. What you will get is two strong will people, who have been dealt a shit card in life and making the most of it. To find love or a connection is something of a miracle. But love can strike us in the strangest of places.

How could a man with his head stuck so far up his ass that he couldn’t see the sun shine be so fucking… hot?

While the leading man is part of the Royal Blood MC, it is not a major part of the story. It’s just where the characters are from and you don’t receive any real insight into the clubs going-ons.

‘X’ is more a hitman for the club, rather than a true blood brother. He has been conditioned by the club to act out there hits, that’s until Mercy Reid shows him that there is another side to life. For some reason Mercy gets under X’s skin and it’s destroying everything that he has built up over the 8 or so years at the club.

A monster couldn’t love. I couldn’t feel anything, so why even try.

Yet Mercy has a secret of her own. She is not who she says is she and doesn’t let anyone get close to her. Yet X inserts himself into her life. Together they will help each other through the darkness that is trying to consume them.

I was a little disappointed that the secret was revealed a little early in the story, but somehow it worked itself out in the end. It was drawn out to the point it was so obvious. It was dealt with and then and characters could move on to the next part of their lives.

If you want a dark romance with a hint of bikers and suspense in the mix, Royal Blood is the way to go for sure.

Sometimes you had to do shit things to get things done. Shit things to even shittier people. If you didn’t follow through, there was always someone willing to follow right through until you were the one who was dead. I’d seen it so many times, that shit didn’t surprise me anymore.
There was no black and white in my world. It was black or blacker.
And I was the blackest of them all.

Sliding out of the booth, I sauntered across the pub and ducked behind the counter. Nobody gave me a second glance. They didn’t know who I was, nobody did, but they knew I wasn’t anybody good. Peering through the window on the door, Mercy had her back turned, wiping at her damp T-shirt. I could step into her from behind and show her how hard I was…but that wasn’t the way this game was going to be played.

Pressing the door open with the flat of my palm, she looked up at me with blue eyes that gave away two things. Her hair wasn’t naturally black and by the way her pupils dilated, she was amped up. I was interested in only one of these observations and by the way my cock began to stir, there was no guessing which one was the money shot.

Mercy glared up at me, trying to cover her surprise at my appearance.

“What the fuck do you want?” she spat, dabbing at her tiny T-shirt with a rag. “You’re not allowed back here. Employees only.”

I stepped closer, not put off by her tone at all. I’d had worse.

“I don’t give a shit,” I said.

She eyed me, her gaze raking from head to cock and back up again.

I quirked an eyebrow, my lip curling in amusement.

“If you want something, just fucking say it,” she said with an exasperated sigh. “I don’t even know who the fuck you are.”


“X, what?” she said, putting her hands on her hips. Bitch didn’t miss a trick.

“It’s my name.”

“X as in the letter x?” She rolled her eyes.

“Got a problem?” I asked, inching closer.

“Yeah.” She nodded at me. “You’re in a staff only area. You might be all buddy buddy with Weiss, but I don’t know you from shit.”

“The mouth on you,” I breathed, totally turned on. I knew she had bite in her, but fucking Jesus H Christ. The more she bit, the harder I got. My gaze rested on her tits. Yeah, I was a tits man through and through and hers…

“You think I’m going to let you fuck me?” she scoffed, her bluntness doing nothing but turning me on even more.

My gaze snapped back to hers. “Who said I was going to fuck you?”

She pressed her hips forward, her groin rubbing into mine. “Your cock.”

My hand shot up and grasped the hair at the nape of her neck. With a sharp tug, her head fell to the side, leaving her neck exposed. If I was an asshole, I’d just take her now, but I wasn’t…fuck that. I was an asshole. Asshole was too safe a word to describe the kind of man I was.

“No,” I said, running my gaze down her pale neck and over her tits. “No, I’m not going to fuck you, Mercy.” She gave me a look that screamed ‘offended’ and it only made me grin wider. “Not here. When I fuck you, I’m not going to share your screams with anyone.”

Her entire body shivered and I knew I had her. Next time, she would come to me.

Letting her go, I let her hair run between my fingers and it took her a beat too long to step back and separate our bodies.

Giving her one last appreciative look, I turned on my heel and exited the ‘employee only’ room. I could wait. My cock strained against my jeans in protest, but this was one desire I was playing out and savoring.

I strode across the bar and pushed out the door, rearranging myself.

I could wait.




Amity Cross isn’t my real name. That’s no secret.
I didn’t want my Mum and my workplace to find out I wrote about doodles and tongue-in-cheek sexual innuendo.
I live in a leafy suburb of Melbourne writing about screwed up relationships and kick ass female leads that don’t take s**t lying down.
Insert more pretentious c**p here.
