About the Book
There is a rule amongst his kind: A jester doesn’t lie.
In the kingdom of Whimtany, Poet is renowned. He’s young and pretty, a lover of men and women. He performs for the court, kisses like a scoundrel, and mocks with a silver tongue.
Yet allow him this: It’s only the most cunning, most manipulative soul who can play the fool.
For Poet guards a secret. One the Crown would shackle him for. One that he’ll risk everything to protect. Alas, it will take more than clever words to deceive Princess Briar. Convinced that he’s juggling lies as well as verse, this righteous nuisance of a girl is determined to expose him.
But not all falsehoods are fiendish. Poet’s secret is delicate, binding the jester to the princess in an unlikely alliance . . . and kindling a breathless attraction, as alluring as it is forbidden.

I was sent this book for review by the author and I happy to say that I love this book!
It’s is beautiful, clever, and powerful.
It is definitely in the running for favorite book of this year and it is only February. I don’t even know where to start because the writing is whimsical while the story is mind-blowing. Plus, this is a diverse read.
I guess I will talk about the characters first because I love them! Poet is so clever and I fell in love with him from the first moment and I love his relationship with Princess Briar. Enemy to lovers is my favorite trope in YA. I live for this trope! Also, Briar’s friendship with Eliot is so cute – I had so much fun reading about their relationship. Friends can break your heart as well.
I know I can talk about the plot of this book but not without spoilers. Let me just say that you will not see this plot twist coming! OMG! Wow. It is mind-blowing but it is also a powerful twist.

Where to Buy ⇢ Amazon
Time to talk about my favorite parts! I am so excited and this is my first time doing a spoiling section in my reviews but I think it is going to be fun.
I love when Poet and Briar first talk in front of the mirrors. It was so funny and cute! Poet can be so mean but he is so caring and loving. I just love him so freaking much! Why do you love or hate him?
Poet’s secret! I could of never guessed he had a son! And a son that have a mental illness which the Kingdoms hate and use them for entertainment or labor. I think his son have autism but correct me if I am wrong.
The steamy scenes are perfect! *fans myself* I love the blur between Young Adult to New Adult. The author sure can write a good sex scene – it is beautifully written but with a enough details. What did you guys think of these moments?
I love the ending! It shows that change isn’t easy and it takes time. Nothing can happen overnight.
What are your favorite moments? Tell me in the comments.
