Book summary:

"Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this unholy threesome can raise him to his rightful place as a rule of Manhattan's kink kingdom.

Bouncing from bed to bed on the Upper East Side, Kingsley Edge is brilliant, beautiful and utterly debauched. No carnal act of chemical compound can relieve his self-destructive heartache—only Søren, the one person he loves without limit or regret. A man he can never have, but in whose hands Kingsley is reborn to attain even greater heights of sin.

Kingsley's plan to open the ultimate BDSM club—a dungeon playground for New York's A-list—becomes his obsession. His expertise in domination can't subdue the one man who wants to stop him. The enigmatic Reverend Fuller won't rest until King's dream is destroyed, and so the battle lines are set; it's one man's sacred mission against another's…"
Long live the king!

      To be completely honest, I wasn't entirely sold on the idea about prequel series for The Original Sinners. I was all: "What is there more to tell?" Well, I am not an stubborn idiot, so I can admit when I am wrong. So, here it is - I was wrong. (I am sorry, my dearest Mistress Tiffany, for doubting your decisions.)

      Second novel in the White Years series brings us story about the one and only Kingsley Edge, my absolutely favorite character. I love him even more than Nora and, trust me, that is saying something, because I would totally turn into lesbian because of Nora. What makes this book fresh and so "unputdownable" is that it is not just The Prince all over again, but set into different decade. Tiffany Reisz introduces us to rarely seen version of Kingsley, man who we first meet as one of the most intimidating and influential and powerful people in New York. This is Kingsley before he became King. Or how he became master of his kinky universe. He is far from that polished bastard, but everything we love about him is there. He just needed a little bit of help to find his inner ruler. 

      There is absolutely no one among authors of the genre that manages to write captivating erotic story but without obvious, pornographic elements like Tiffany Reisz. Truthfully, this is probably the tamer book so far when it comes to the steamy scenes, but she still manages to pull you into this web of lust and wanting and longing so painful and heartbreaking, that you feel everything like it is happening to you.

      My favorite part about The King is interaction between Soren and  Kingsley. I wasn't Soren's fan in the beginning - actually, he scared me, but I still felt drawn to him. I didn't like him with Nora, but with Kingsley... Oh, my God, I turned into this creature that acts like One Direction groupie. Totally crazy! I adore them together. 

      Next book, The Virgin, should be published next year in March and I am already anxious to get my hands on it. Nora in convent? I can only imagine what sinful twists and turns will fill pages of that book.

  1. I'm so glad everyone's loved this. It was a miss--ish for me unfortunately (maybe just too hard to live up to the hype?). I just didn't see the art in her writing like everyone else for some reason. I did really like Kingsley though :)
