We are on the blog tour for Bloom. We are pretty excited for this book, if you can't tell. We have done a cover reveal and release day fun. Now you can check out what Tank and I thought of the actual book! We received this book from the author. This is our honest review and thank you to Nikki Rae!

Given to The Grimm Order as an infant, Fawn was raised in a world shaped by the rich and powerful. When she was sold at the age of nine to a Suitor, Fawn believed he would protect her from the “Mainworld”, where those who know nothing about the Order live. Living with the cruel man who bought her freedom, she finds just what the Order is about: money, control, and status for the Owner and humiliation and abuse for those they own.
Unwilling to accept the expectations of being Owned, Fawn goes from golden girl to maid, content to live in the shadows of the Order as long as she isn’t Owned again.
It’s been ten years since she disgraced her former Owner’s name, and now the brooding Frenchman Elliot Lyon wants her.
Master Lyon is kind, smart, and unlike any man she’s met. She doesn’t want to admit it to herself, but Fawn is drawn to him despite constantly planning her next escape.
Even the prettiest flowers have thorns, and Master Lyon is hiding secrets that will uproot everything she thinks she knows about him.
It's been about a month ago since I have read this book. This book is one that I have been thinking about for the last month. Tank didn't read it with me as he needs to protect his innocence.
I don't even know where to start with this book! It was described as a romance possibly a little bit of a dark romance. Yet, it's so much more than the guy and the girl get together and have a lot of make out sessions.
What is this book about, you may ask?
Well, there is a secret society (the Order) that runs the world. Think of free masons, but much more elite. The higher ups in this society control the lesser people by using the Grimm tales. The Order has convents that house boys or girls to be sold to the highest bidder. This is where Fawn comes in. She was once a preened little girl who was sold to a very rich man, but then she escaped him. Fawn was eventually caught and returned to the convent. Now that she had gotten a taste of freedom, that is always on her mind. She thinks she is one step ahead of her captors, until she is bought by a sexy Frenchman. Then, her world is turned upside down. I can't tell you much more without ruining the story.
The story is so sensual you may want to be in a quiet room by yourself! The way Nikki Rae describes the Frenchman makes me want one for myself. There is definitely some collars and chains, maybe a little roughing up, and a quite a bit of make up! What really sold me on this book was how it ended. It was a total surprise that made me sad I didn't have the second book to read!
