Lots of spice. A very quick paced book. The only thing that kind of bothered me was the typos. Other than that I loved the book ( )

I'm not really gonna talk about this book for obvious reasons. But I know that I loved this book and I'm gonna go down a spiral and read everything in the Wicked Villains series. ( )

Disney characters reimagined: Jasmine, Ali, & Jafar

This was my intro book to Katee Robert and while this ended up being my least favorite of the WV series (J&J are fine, their dynamic just wasn’t my favorite), it still hooked me in and led me into the rest of the series which I thoroughly enjoyed. If you’re looking for a starter KR series this is definitely fun because this set is complete, but the two spin-off series in adjacent cities are still ongoing so you can add to this world after you finish this set.

!! Following may contain spoilers !!

Synopsis & Notes:

Our first look into the dark underbelly of the leaders of Carver City and their joined patronage of the Underworld sex club.

Jasmine is the classic sheltered daughter of a mafia-esque boss, and Jafar is the head of security. There’s always been some sparks between them, but as Jafar makes his play to overthrow Jasmine’s father, he also makes a play for Jasmine herself.

By the end we see Jasmine finding her own power and Jafar coming to support that outside the bedroom, but INSIDE the bedroom these two form a clear sub-dom relationship. We do get to see the occasional addition to their intimate relations (hello Meg, see you in Book 2!) but theirs is mostly a two player game.

The spice is good but the overall relationship dynamic of these two compared to some of the others in the series has me knocking this down to 3⭐️ in comparison. Buckle up for the next few! ( )

I have a ton of Katee Robert's books on my Kindle but this is this first one I've read and I really enjoyed it! I was honestly surprised to see that this only has a 3.5ish rating on Goodreads because I had heard a lot of good things about this series. Luckily, I was one of the people who enjoyed it.

This is definitely a darker romance and pretty steamy. It does have consensual non-consent but I don't think this is the darkest romance I've read so it wasn't as dark to me as it might have been. This has been pointed out by other reviewers but this book is pretty plot light. I thought that was fine because the focus was just the relationship and setting up some of the other characters in this series. I liked the plot we did get and the way Jasmine's, Jafar's, and Ali's stories were re-imagined.

I thought the relationship between Jafar and Jasmine was interesting but wasn't super romantic. It was really a mostly erotic relationship because this book isn't really long enough to give me the time to believe they were in love. I did like how it ended but this was clearly mostly about the sex between them, which was interesting and well-written.

I am definitely going to continue with this series because I own all the other books and I liked this first one. I'm interested to see what Robert does with the rest of these characters. ( )

I heard so many good things about the Wicked Villains series. I got an email that Desperate Measures is free as an e-book, and I got it.
This is the steamiest Disney reimagining I have ever read, and the idea is very well executed. This is a story of revenge and love and power—a story about a villain and a princess falling in love.
I obviously liked the book very much, but something was missing in the story. I can't quite put my finger on what; it's just that I was waiting for something the whole book, and then it was the end. I must say a fantastic end. Still, I wouldn't mind another chapter or two more ( )
