How to top Cruel Prince? Well Ashley Jade certainly succeeds with Ruthless Knight all thanks to some compelling and flawed characters. Ruthless Knight can be read as a stand-alone but why would one deprive themselves of book 1 Cruel Prince which is just as good.
Ruthless Knight is a roller coaster. A tour de force of emotions from start to beginning. Yes, the story is centered around high school, 17/18year olds and the drama that comes along like cliques, football and sex but it’s so much more. The story and its core characters here Sawyer and Cole deal with real and relatable issues. Issues that hits home for most people and the author doesn’t hold back when it comes to showing the dark and ugly sides to those. There’s nothing flattering about it and there shouldn’t be. It’s real, brutal and it hurts like hell.
Sawyer (The Bible Thumper) Church and the popular Quarterback Cole Covington. I absolutely adored these two. In book 1 I had no doubt that there was something going on or there was potential for some given the poking Cole did at Sawyer. Some fascination of some sorts. In Ruthless Knight Sawyer and Cole truly shine. They’re young and make plenty of mistakes but I couldn’t blame them given the track card of issues they share from their past and now the present.
How is it possible that two so very different and opposite characters complete and complement each other so flawlessly. Again it’s all thanks to the author and her storytelling. I feel her love for the characters and their story that it jumps off the pages. Ashley Jade lets her characters take their time and it pays off. Their time to make mistakes and learn from them. To grow up and to let go.
Ruthless Knight is one hell of a book. Not only has #Sole claimed my heart but so have the other characters. Despite their flaws they have strong personalities but most importantly they have heart. This series and its characters keeps on delivering. Wow!

Royal Hearts Academy is a series of standalones, but you can catch up with the first book, Cruel Prince, right here:
Welcome to their kingdom
Cole Covington is the most popular heartbreaker at school.
Every guy wants to be him and every girl wants to screw him.
His devastatingly good looks, golden arm, and flirty smiles don't do it for me anymore...because I know what's lurking underneath the star quarterback's gorgeous armor.
At least I thought I did.
Sometimes the most beautiful people...hide the ugliest truths.
And sometimes the only way to save someone...
is to walk beside them through hell.
Sawyer Church is the bible-thumping nerd of Royal Hearts Academy.
Girls pick on her and guys don't notice her.
Sweet, curvy, and sarcastic, she's impossible to ignore.
No matter how much I try.
Everyone at school has her pegged as the chubby, Jesus loving geek, but unlike them—Sawyer's real and never pretends to be someone she's not.
Until I ask her to be my fake girlfriend.
Sometimes the most beautiful souls...hide the greatest pain.
And sometimes the only way to save someone...
is to fight for them.
