Summary

A rebellious gang princess, four hot dangerous gangsters, one psycho stalker, and a revenge scheme that could destroy everything in Paradise Bend...

My arranged marriage should have forged an alliance between my fiancé's gang and my father's. It turns out my fiancé had other plans.

Like slaughtering my entire family the night before the wedding.

I make it out alive, left with nothing but a thirst for vengeance. To crush the prick who betrayed me, I have to turn to the biggest pricks of them all.

Hot, cocky, and dangerous, Wylder Noble and his men rule Paradise Bend. If I pass their brutal tests to prove I deserve their help, my ex doesn't stand a chance.

But there are deeper troubles stirring in my hometown. While I try to figure out whether I'd rather kiss or kill my infuriating allies, I've got a deranged psycho leaving gruesome presents at my window. Outsiders are invading our streets, preparing for war.

If they think our little county will be easy pickings, they couldn't be more mistaken. The Nobles are far from noble when tackling a threat, and I'm no damsel in distress.

Before this is over, someone's going to bleed. And this time, it won't be me.

Crooked Paradise is a complete gritty contemporary romance series from best-selling author Eva Chase (writing as Eva Chance) and Harlow King. This set contains all four books in the series: Scorned Princess, Perilous Lady, Ruthless Queen, and Lethal Empress.

What a Surprise!

Not my usual genre for listening; but I was compelled to hear to the end Taking me through most emotions including suspense did wonder how they would escape some events; but the storyline at no point lets the listener down.

A paradise of a box set

Book 1 Wow Eva and Harlow wrote a great start to a series . It had me glued right till the end . The story is very well detailed , the story has everything you would want , action, revenge and mystery.
What did the heroine Mercy do who does she turn to when her fiancé slaughtered her whole family. There is only one family that she can go to , the Noble family. Wlyder Noble the heir and his three right hand men of Kaige, Gideon and Rowan plus his Aunt put Mercy through the wringer.
There is also a betrayal in the Noble household, you will never suspect who it is. What I like about this story, that there is plenty of POV and of course a cliffhanger.
Book 2 Wow. Book 2 was fantastic like book 1 was . This book 2 picks up where book 1 ended.
Mercy once again can only depend on herself once she’s taken hostage by her ex . What can I tell you , there are not enough words. It has mystery ( who betrayed Mercy ) suspense, revenge , it will take you up and down like a roller coaster. It ends on a cliffhanger,
Book 3 in the series . Both authors Eva Chance and Harlow King continue with a story that will keep you glued till the end .
It has lots of non stop action , mystery and suspense filled .
Heroine is Mercy. Heros are her mates ( lovers ) Wylder, Rowan, Kaige and Gideon.
Ezra Kicks Mercy out of the mansion. But her men don’t stop there because you get to see Mercy ruthless side. When Wylder, Rowan, Kaige and Gideon. decide to show Mercy enemies, the claws who the real Queen is .
Book 4
in the series and the end. Eva Chance and Harlow King wrote a book was nonstop action from first page to the last. Full of twists and turns . Mercy and her Nobles men need to stop their enemies , Xavier is one of them. There is also betrayal , won’t say more , you need to grab it and see from where.

J.F. Harding, Ava Lucas performance was outstanding. They brought all the characters to live . You were able to know who each character was by their tone

Fantastic 🔥❤️🔥

All four books were a joy to listen to, action-packed and not a dull moment. I liked the four male characters and the female lead Mercy. It's so refreshing to listen to a book with a strong female.... Badass! The story is well written and will have you engaged throughout the four books.

The narrators were great, no complaints.

Strong and 🔥

Book 1- Scorned princess gives us strong female characters, lots of sexy time 🔥, a mystery and a sprinkle of tragedy! The ending is such a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to listen to book 2!
Book 2-This story gives us so much action!! Some extra 🔥 moments and leaves us with so many questions!! I can’t wait for the next book!!
Book 3-This raises the 🔥 up a few notches!! The action is still very strong and you gasp more than one time! You still are left with so many questions so the next book is in my future for sure!!
Book 4- Conclusions always hurt my heart because we never went great stories to end. This one is packed with action, love, and 🔥! You get a small glimpse into what their future might hold and you see glimpses of hope of spin offs in the future!!

Binge it!

I was given a copy of this book by the author. My review is voluntary.

Scorned Princess - 4 stars

Mercy thought she would finally escape her father's iron control over her life when she married the head of a rival gang to solidify their alliance. Colt Bryant was not the love of her life, but he always treated her kindly and with respect. But then he turned on her and her family on the night before the wedding. She was the only one who managed to escape. Not sure where to go that Colt wouldn't find her she felt she only had one choice - a crime family that rivaled hers - the Nobles.

Mercy must now find a way to convince Wylder Noble to help her get her revenge. He and his closest associates are not going to let her waltz in and start a war. The things she will have to do to prove herself are not for the faint-hearted. Even if she manages to win over Wylder she might still lose.

Perilous Lady - 5 stars

This book starts where the last one left off. Mercy has been grabbed by her treacherous ex-fiance, Colt, and some of his less-than-merry men as she and Kaige were engaged in a little running competition. Though he tries to convince her that the Nobles were responsible for her current predicament, she knows better than to take him at his word with no further evidence. She manages to execute a rather bloody escape from the Steel Knights, but when Wylder and the guys show up in the Bend, apparently to "rescue" her, she is understandably wary. They convince her that they had nothing to do with her abduction and she returns to the Noble mansion. (I don't consider this a spoiler since it happens at the very beginning, wouldn't be much of a book if it ended there!)

So starts a thrilling story that has everything from previously buried dead body parts being flung through windows to a heart-stopping encounter with a sexual predator. Wylder does an about-face from a hot lover to a cold stranger. Mercy grows closer to Gideon and finally hears Rowan's story. There are also battles galore, treachery from an unexpected source, and close calls. Oh, and some hot love scenes. Enjoy!

Ruthless Queen - 5 stars

Mercy thought her ex-fiance was her biggest problem in Paradise Bend, turns out she was wrong. There is even a bigger threat, some lunatic named Xavier is after her and she isn't even sure why. Ezra Noble has kicked her out of the Noble mansion and now she has nowhere to live. The Katz heir still has her four lovers and they haven't totally deserted her. She has enough street smarts to spy on the two main gangs currently in residence in the Bend and try to figure out what is going on. But then Ezra puts a hit out on her and one of her guys gets caught in Xavier's headquarters. She's going to have to find more help if she's going to stay alive.

Lethal Empress - 5 stars

Mercy Katz and her lovers were all hit with drugged darts at the end of the last book. So, where were they when they came back to consciousness? Obviously, they weren't grabbed by the Storm's men or they wouldn't have woken up at all. But is the man who abducted them any better? He is giving then one week to get rid of the Storm's men from their county or else he will step in and kill them all and do it himself. If they don't take the deal he'll just start with them. So, a lose-lose proposition. They haven't had much luck to this point at besting Xavier. One step forward, two steps back. His latest gambit was to send Wylder's brother's dead body to the Noble mansion. How do you beat someone like this?

Needless to say, they take the deal. Now they just have to figure out how to do the nearly impossible in a week's time. Fortunately, they will gain an unexpected ally who will feed them inside information. But there are still plenty of battles to come and they may not all make it through.

Bingeworthy series

This series had me on the edge of my seat on multiple occasions. FMC Mercy was one hell of a strong female lead and she needed it, as she had quite a lot of opposition to deal with. If you like a series that flows naturally and has some amazing twists and turns to keep you invested, this one's for you!

Great series!

So I cheated and listened to the box set audiobook for this series. I had listened to it when the books came out individually and was excited for it to be in box set because that means I don't have to go digging for the other books. I love, love this series and highly recommend it. The narrators are fantastic! Love how they bring this to life.

Can't Help But Binge!

Crooked Paradise: The Complete Series by Eva Chance and Harlow King is an enemies-to-lovers gang romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Ava Lucas and J.F. Harding.

This is the first series of Eva and Harlow's that I have read, and it won't be my last. I couldn't help but binge a book a day. I was hooked and couldn't wait to see what was going to happen next. I loved the relationship that bloomed between Mercy, Wylder, Kaige, Gideon, and Rowan as the series progressed. I really enjoyed getting all of their points of view throughout the books. It really brought the story to life.

Ava Lucas and J.F. Harding did an amazing job on the narration. They both really know how to bring a story to life. I look forward to listening to more of their work in the future.

If you have the chance, I will highly recommend getting the box set in print/eBook to get the exclusive bonus epilogue that is set three years later. It was a great addition to their story and a great set up for Vigilante Kings series that will be featuring Beckett.

I would recommend this series if you like enemies-to-lover romance, contemporary romance, reverse harem romances or gang romances.

Not bad

I was able to listen to 4 books for the price of 1 which was nice. It passed the time while traveling out of town. Honestly, the only thing I wasn't too happy about was the ending. I like to hear more into the future and this only did a 3 months later.

binge

book 1: better than I thought as this is not my typical read/listen. As Mercy's fiancé (gang) kills her family she seeks help from the Nobles to get revenge. In the process she has to prove she is worth helping.
book 2: Mercy is still out for revenge against Colt but outside forces are "helping" Colt against the Nobles. The twist is that someone else is pilling the strings that is trying to take over all along.
book 3: talk about a rock and a hard place Mercy find herself in the deep end when Wylder's father kick her out and wants her dead. Along with two two gangs fighting for territory while also wanting her out of the way permanently.
book 4: what a fitting end to this roller coaster of a series that kept you on the edge of your seat the whole time. An absolute must read and/or listen to.

More believable

This is one of the few polyamorous books I've actually thought was believable. The characters actually grew feelings and didn't just all fall into instalove and bed at the same time.

Fantastic Contemporary Romance!

I loved this story from start to finish! There really is no dull moment because the action starts right away and just keeps going. This series totally sucked me in, and I fell in love with these characters. The character building is great for all the main characters. I love the FMC's fire, and her back-and-forth with the guys is one of my favorite parts of the series. That enemies-to-lovers angst keeps the romantic tension high, even though we get some steam early on too. Not to mention the suspense and plot twists! It's a story I will listen to again and again!

For the narration, I give both a 5/5. I really feel like they brought the story to life and their voices fit the characters well.

Quick Details:
- Strong and sassy FMC
- RH - 4 guys
- New Adult, Dark Enemies-to-Lovers Contemporary Crime Romance
- Fast burn steam, slow burn romance
- Multi POV
