Their Vicious Darling by Nikki St. Crowe Book Review
The Dark One has finally accepted me…just in time for everything to change. Because Vane’s brother, The Crocodile, has just arrived on Neverland soil and he’s not alone. He’s brought with him members of the royal Darkland family and they want Vane’s Death Shadow back at any cost.
Of course, Peter Pan, Vane, Kas and Bash, they’re all familiar with war. But war isn’t easy when love is on the line.
I know those vicious Lost Boys would do anything to protect me. But what if I’m not the one that needs saving?
As power shifts on the island and shadows are claimed, all five of us have to let go of who we were, if we have any chance of becoming who we are destined to be.
NOTE: Their Vicious Darling is book three in the Vicious Lost Boys series. It is a dark romantic reimagining of Peter and Wendy. All characters have been aged up. If you like your enemies to lovers romance with hot, ruthless, morally gray love interests, you’ll enjoy Their Vicious Darling. You can expect an island with darkness and secrets and no true hero in sight, with a found family atmosphere, and ‘touch her and I’ll unalive you’ vibes. Their Vicious Darling ends on a cliffhanger.

I did check her website and she gives this general warning for all the books in the Vicious Lost Boys Series: Mental illness, smoking, graphic/rough sex, sex in public, group sex, DubCon, graphic violence, graphic language, captive/captivity, degradation, submission, bondage/ropes, blood play, choking, CNC, and talk of sexual assault. I will say that there is quite a bit of alcohol in this book, as well.

- Sexually Explicit Scenes
- Talk of Sexual Assault

There are possible **SPOILERS** beyond this point!
There are many perspectives in this book series and it’s one time that I actually love that the story is being told from so many voices. St. Crowe does an amazing job creating unique voices for each of the narrators and it adds to the storyline instead of taking away from it. It feels like you’re watching a TV series. I like that these are shorter books because it’s quick and fun. I’m just greedy and want each of these characters to have their own novels.
I’m not going to lie and say that this is a book that isn’t SUPER SPICY. Because it DEFINITELY is, and I’m not mad about it! I do think that the plotlines of these books actually track. I am invested in the story of Pan, Kas, Bash, Winnie, and Vane and how their story will end. The Shadows and The Fae Kingdom are the biggest plots within this story outside of the relationships. The relationship entanglement and secrets
In this book, we get a lot more history about the male characters. There was significantly more action in this book than in the last one. I think it’s because we finally meet the infamous Roc, Vane’s brother. His arrival is what really throws a wrench into all the preconceived plans of almost every character in the series. The more I learned about Roc, the more intrigued I was about him. Typical lol He’s the boogeyman and the monster under the bed but he’s one of my favorites. I want more. And overall, I just want more from these books.
The ending… I’m still kind of reeling over it! I was not expecting it at all and you could say that I desperately want to know what happens in the next book! I love a good cliffhanger and Nikki St. Crowe makes a mean cliffhanger 😂
I mean, as I said before, it’s a SUPER SPICY book!
Setting / World / Universe
There is still whimsy from the tree house. I’ve seen a few people’s sketches of what they think the house looks like and I have to say that my vision of it really makes it more fantasy than paranormal. There is a little bit of debate for me but I ultimately would say this is a fantastic place because it doesn’t exist in ours in any capacity.
“I missed you,” he admits. “More than the sun?” I counter. He laughs and brings my hand to his mouth and gently kisses the backside. “I’ve missed the light and I’ve missed the warmth, but both pale in comparison to you, Darling.”
The word love comes to mind. To love and be loved. To cling to something, not because you are afraid, but because you are happy.
Women fascinate me. They are almost always underestimated, which makes them potentially some of the most lethal opponents.
