Well HELLO THERE.
Go on, ask me how many times I was late for work because I was reading The King. Go on.
Twice. Almost an hour late. Because I couldn’t put the bloody book down long enough to grab my stuff, get in my car and start my commute. Lucky my new boss didn’t notice.
The King jumps you right into the drama, love and heat that Reisz does so well in her other books. This time, Kingsley our favorite King goes to see Grace, new mom and Zachary’s wife. There he tells the tale of him and Soren, before he built his empire, just as Nora had gotten Soren’s attention.
There’s lots of great things about this installment. King is one of my favorite characters and he usually takes side stage to Soren and Nora. But his is all his story and we get to see a more vulnerable, broken King. His past is told in his own voice, his love of Soren raw and unforgiving. I really liked how he saw Soren, Nora, his world, giving us a glimpse into King’s head that is not normally seen.
Of course my favorite other person in the book is Soren, because like everyone else I do love that man. Priest or no. I mean, if I had a priest like that, I probably would have gone to CCD class way more regularly. And enjoyed it.
Sam is a new addition, his new secretary who happens to be a lesbian. I really liked Sam, even though I wasn’t sure about her at first. She’s very true to herself and strong and I had a clear picture in my mind of what has looked like, how she would walk an act. Like all of Reisz’s characters, they are all mesmerizing, well developed and real. The dialogue is one of my favorite things about this series. It’s quick and hilarious. The jokes are sometimes clever, sometimes dirty, sometimes silly.
It was a pleasure to be back in Reisz’s world with some of my favorite characters. Anytime a new book comes out, it just makes me want to go back and read the series all over again. But Reisz gives me enough backstory to remember what happened in the last books so I’m not lost for long and within the first ten pages, I couldn’t put it down. This series is my favorite erotica series, by one of my favorite authors.
So why don’t you? I don’t recommend starting with The King, because there is just too much juiciness in the series to get all the spoilers ahead. Go to The Siren and start there. You will call me and thank me later.

About the Author:
Tiffany Reisz lives with her fiancé (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. She has five piercings, one tattoo, and has been arrested twice.
When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).
If she couldn’t write, she would die.
