Queen of Hearts (Heels, Rhymes & Nursery Crimes Vol. 21) By Natalina Reis – Review by Shai Flores

Queen of Hearts (Heels, Rhymes & Nursery Crimes, #21)Queen of Hearts by Natalina Reis
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I really enjoyed this novella. It is part of the Heels, Rhymes, and Nursery Crimes series, but I had not read any of the other books. I actually did not realize it was part of a series until I had gotten it on my Kindle. I was drawn to the book because of the gorgeous cover and it did not disappoint. This quick, fun read puts a twist on a commonly known villain, the Queen of Hearts. She is truly a hero in disguise as she works to avenge the women of the city and retaliate against the men that harm them. A strong female lead character, a mysterious man, a brave goal, and a sinister villain are elements that help make this a great read.

I think every woman would know someone that she’d like to send to the Queen of Hearts!! This book was a little different than I expected, but I was not disappointed!! I have not read any other books in this series but I believe this little stand alone served it’s purpose…to get me to read the other books! 🙂

Mimi Mioyo (I love how that name rolls off the tongue) is fed up over the way that men can get by treating…or mistreating, women. Thus, she becomes the Queen of Hearts. Any man who can beat her at a game of Stolen Hearts has an opportunity with her that other men are clamoring for. The thing is, would they be if they knew what *really* happens behind the Queen’s doors?

Jac is a new guy in town who claims to be Mimi’s new dealer. Mimi isn’t sure she can trust anyone else but Jac does something to earn her trust…but will it ever be a complete trust? He is a man after all!

I love how this story intertwines so many facets of things that, unfortunately, happen today. While this is a work of fictional fantasy, I know that some will wish some of these events to come true in their own lives. There are some deep topics covered in this book but all in all, I found it to be a very enjoyable read on a stormy afternoon. I look forward to reading other books in this series!

I cannot say enough good things about this book. The strong female lead who in a way is a vigilante protecting females from their lying, cheating, abusive men. We have all been there at one point in our lives and dealt with these types of men. This book offers the type of revenge we only wish we could have achieved.

Mimi, our female lead, has had her heart destroyed more times than any woman should. So after being taken in at the gentleman’s club, which just so happens to be a cover to protect women. She alters her identity and thus becomes the Queen of Hearts inviting men who beat her in hearts to her room, she loses on purpose. Once in her room she offers the men a drink that will forever alter their lives and protect future women from them. That is until she meets Jac, a blackmailer, who takes over as her supplier of her wares. However, upon winning and being taken to her room he refuses all she has to offer instead offering a deal she can’t refuse or can she? Things go awry from her as Mimi gets more than she bargained for with Jac. Can she learn to open her heart again to someone new? Or will she let love slip through her fingers because of past heartbreak?

This book gave me serious black widow vibes. It is a quick read and draws you in from the start, hooking you in Mimi’s web of vengeance on terribles males. If you like strong female characters and evil nefarious plots then this book is for you!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Mimi Mioyo is the star of this dark fantasy story set in the late Victorian age. As an abused woman, she had sought safety with Seree, the woman who provided shelter for women under the guise of a gentleman’s club. They had dubbed Mimi the Queen of Hearts. She would play a card game, with a night in her bedroom as the prize. She would purposely lose, and when the man arrived in her bedroom, she would offer him some wine laced with poison. Only, she didn’t kill the men. She hit them below the belt, literally, as the poison would render them unable to achieve an erection permanently.

Mimi needed more herbs to make her poison, but becomes alarmed when her normal supplier doesn’t arrive. Jacques “Jac” Tourville tells her he had bad luck and that Jac would be her supplier. Much to her dismay, Jac shows up at the gentleman’s club and plays the card game. He wins and follows her to her room. However, Jac has no intention of drinking anything, nor is he wanting to have sex with her. Instead, he offers her something much more sinister.

This is a short story of revenge on vile men who cheat and abuse women. Mimi was a type of vigilante, but there are always holes in every plan. Jac turns out to be the hole in her plan. I recommend readers who like strong female characters who also are not innocent to read this book.

This is my first book from this author and I enjoyed it. As a child, I loved nursery rhymes. So to see them in another aspect was amazing. I love the thrill the author made me feel. It is a quick and entertaining read. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series. The cover is very eye-catching too.

The fact that the Queen of Hearts wants to put a stop to abusive/cheating men, makes this story even more amazing. This is the first book that I have read from this author, and I was not disappointed. I could not resist reading this book much less able to put it down long enough to feed myself. This fast-paced story had me on the edge of my seat the entire time. I was captured at the very beginning of the first page and did not stop reading until the last page was finished. We all know the nursery rhyme, now read the author’s story. The characters are believable and alive that it makes you feel like they are your friends in real life sitting next to you. All I can say is taking the chance on this author; you won’t regret it.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Queen of Hearts: Heels, Rhymes, & Nursery Crimes Vol. 21 is part of a multi-volume series reworking classic nursery rhymes. I was excited when I saw this author had a new book out. The series is standalone stories, but I want to read at least a few more to delve further into this world. I enjoyed the main character, Mimi, and how her story was built. Men might find her evil, but she is just trying to punish those that are cruel and make things better for the ones they torture. I like the twists and turns and the pace of the story. I look forward to this next author’s read and exploring more of this intriguing series.

5/5 Stars

Queen Of Hearts: Heels, Rhymes, & Nursery Crimes Vol. 21 by Natalina Reis

This is the first book I’ve read by the author. Queen of Hearts is volume 21 of the Heels, Rhymes, and Nursery Crimes Series.

Mìmì has no respect for a man who beats and cheats on the woman he is supposed to love, cherish, and respect. She gets revenge on them by removing their ability to have intercourse. The quote I chose for Mìmì is: “It’s okay. It happens to everyone. Just go home and rest, and you’ll be back to normal in no time.”

Highly recommended for Fantasy Romance lovers.

4 Stars

The cover is what first drew me to this book, it’s beautiful. After reading the blurb with its rhyming prose, my interest was peaked. The story is definitely original. After suffering a traumatic experience, Mimi survived and managed to take control of her life. In an era where women have no say and men have ultimate power over them, Mimi managed to have a say in her destiny. She became the Queen of Hearts. Playing a dangerous game where the stakes are high, failure was not an option. She manages to vindicate the lives of multiple women while putting hers at risk. With Jac walking into her life, will she be able to put the past to rest and open her heart again?
