Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this potent threesome can raise him to his rightful place as ruler of Manhattan’s kink kingdom.
Bouncing from bed to bed on the Upper East Side—handsomely paid in both bills and blackmail fodder—Kingsley Edge is brilliant, beautiful and utterly debauched. No carnal act or chemical compound can relieve his self-destructive apathy—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. He plans to open the ultimate BDSM club: a dungeon playground for New York’s A-list that’ll change the scene forever.
I was unclear what to expect from this Kingsley story because in my mind we already know his story. We’ve already read about his love story with Soren when they were both at school. We’ve already read about his loyalty to those that he considers “his” and what he will do to protect them. But I’ve loved mostly everything Tiffany Reisz has written so of course I wanted to read it. I was just really hoping for more than a story we’ve already heard just told from another point of view (because I’m really not a fan of that!).
So I was so happy to be completely wrong and have a whole new story here. This might be one of my favorites out of all of the books so far. We get to see the beginning of everything from Kingsley’s perspective. The story begins in present tense and the majority of it is set when Kingsley was just a strip club owner and not the BDSM club owner extraordinaire. Most of the story is before Nora was around or at least before King met her which is a big difference and one I wasn’t expecting, but I adjusted quickly. Soren and King are reunited after a time apart. For me Soren was the biggest adjustment I needed to make – he was much more light-hearted than I’m used to seeing him. I really liked seeing him in that way, joking around with Kingsley. It made me like Soren more than usual too.
“You know I have to have more sexy to make up for all the sex you aren’t having. Someone has to restore the balance in the universe.”
“The universe thanks you for your sacrifice.”
There were also new characters to get to know with the main one being Sam. I was fascinated with her relationship with Kingsley. It was more emotional than I was expecting and I enjoyed getting to see this fresh relationship and what it did to King.
I loved this book and can’t wait to see more in this series!
