Dark Erotica/ CR
Synopsis On Goodreads:
Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this unholy threesome can raise him to his rightful place as a ruler 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 or 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…
*** REVIEW ***
"Once there was a king without a kingdom."
This book is about my favorite Frenchman and the king of the underground kink kingdom- Kingsley Edge and therefore it had the potential to dethrone my favorite book of this series - The Prince (OS, #3), but it didn't. Don't get me wrong- I liked it a lot if not even loved it, but there were still some things that kept me from rating it 5 stars. Let's start with the things that make this series one of the best dark erotica books out there for me:
~ Dark, edgy, bitter sweet and way too hot story delivered by beautiful, captivating writing. Tiffany Reisz remains one of the best authors I read lately.
~ The most charming and hottest king/ prince/ switch, you name it, of the OS series. This book has only confirmed yet again why he is my favorite character. This is the story about him building his kingdom- the 8th Circle and the people who helped him in the process. It was Kingsley at his worse- meaning Kingsley at his best. ;)
“I’m French,” Kingsley said. “I’m asking about your religion.” “That is my religion.”
~ The story of King and his sadist Priest. These two had me hot and bothered with their "so close no matter how far" relationship ever since I read The Prince. It's funny, because as you already know I don't even like Søren, but somehow when he's with Kingsley I might say that I even...not like him, but found him bearable. I lived, cherished and breathed for every moment between these two while reading and those are my favorite moments of the book.
~ Smoking hot Rolls Royce sex scene featuring...guess who? *_* No, my lips are sealed- read the book and find out. All I'm going to say is- thank you, Mistress Reisz from the bottom of my dirty mind.
The reasons why The Prince is still my No. 1 Original Sinners book:
~ "The polyamory" is still something I find hard accepting and that will probably never change. I find this series despite that addicting, but I don't see myself reading more books with this type of relationship in the future, but who knows, you know what they say- never say never.
wanted hoped this installment will be focused more on Kingsley's & Søren's relationship just like in The Prince, even though my friends who read this book said that it's not and sadly they were right.
~ I also
hoped thought that this is going to be mainly mm book, but it wasn't. I guess I forgot the fact that Kingsley is bisexual, but either way I found his mm relationships more interesting than his f/m relationships.
~ There were some parts I felt the story was dragging and some moments I could have easily gone without.
All in all, this was another very good installment in the OS series and I'm sure that the fans, especially the Kingsley harem will be more than pleased.
"Vive le roi."
Uhm. Okay, no. I can't do that polyamory thing either. Not in books, and most definitely not in real life. You are brave for reading these books! I can't. Oh my heart.ReplyDelete
Haha...Yeah, I guess you can I'm pretty brave when it comes to this series. :DDelete
I need to read this series xxxReplyDelete
Highly recommended if you're a fan of dark erotica!Delete
I love it when it books in a series are able to deliver time and time again (its super hard to find these days though!). I think you have convinced me to give this series a go one day! Lovely review as always! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jasprit! Can't wait to see what you'll think about it.Delete
Yeah, still not into the polyamory, but I'm really intrigued, Purple. I guess if I picked this up it would have to know that it would be a pure fantasy, out of reality experience. Wonderful review! :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Rachel! Agree, this will probably be my only series with polyamory romance.Delete
I've got the (unread) prequel of that series, I'm not part of his harem yet but I'd love to be, I've read so much praise about T. Reisz's writing that I have to try. Great review !ReplyDelete
Thanks, Iza! Hope you'll like the books!Delete
