“I lack,” said Laurent, “the easy mannerisms that are usually shared with,” you could see him pushing the words out, “a lover.”
“You lack the easy mannerisms that are usually shared with anyone,” said Damen.”
🌟 Prince’s Gambit is one of the best books I have read this year, if not ever!
The author stepped up her game in all aspects of the story.

🌟 If you read this book or you are planning to, then we are past the controversy surrounding book 1 and we agree that we know what we are getting into when we are reading this. That being said, the improvements made me question myself if I was reading a book by the same author. And it is common that books that are 2nd in a series fall into the “Middle book syndrome” and they usually suck. But this had a mutation that made it even more superior.

🌟 I said in my review of book 1 that it had good characters, average world building and plot. Now we get to discover more about the world, there is a map and there is traveling between different countries which gave a chance to expand the whole thing.

🌟 And what about the sudden turn of events?! I was so thrilled and wanted to finish this to see what happens because there were all kinds of possibilities.

🌟 This book is character driven and that is even more obvious now. I don’t like Inst-romance in books but this is the total opposite, Pacat is so good at writing a slow burn romance and I was like, just shut up and do something you too! And the good thing is that it all happens in a short number of pages but the struggle is real because we care about the characters.

🌟 The writing style is as good as book 1 where it was the strongest point and made me continue the series, the world choices that Pacat use is so vast and unique and I totally like it!

“And if you want a personal message,” said Laurent, “You can tell my uncle boykiller that he can cut the head off every child from here to the capital. It won’t make him into a king, it will simply mean he has no one left to fuck.”

🌟 Summary: Captive prince 2 is an even better book that the first installment and the story just keeps getting better, so if you like the series or you want to give it another chance then this book is the best reason to do so! Final Rating is 4 stars.

🌟 Prescription: For fans of LGBT/ Historical fictions reads.


  1. What are the improvements that made it seem like a different author? I tried to read the first book but I couldn’t get through the first few chapters. I remember being very disgusted by the opening scenes, although I’m aware I have a pretty low threshold when it comes to “dark” reads.
