Blurb from PR company:

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.

Jax's Thoughts:

Oh Kingsley, my king....ok, that may not sound as good as Captain, my captain, but I'd follow him just the same. First, he leads us to much wanted info on the newest addition to his royal family, before sharing with us the tale of how he went from a kinky Kingsley to the King of Kink.

Reading from King's POV is definitely fun, and unexpectedtly endearing. Usually, when I love a character for their brash and unrepentant nature, I have a hard time taking in their self doubts and insecurities. However, King being King, there is a hint of arrogance even in his worries. He is certainly a worthy leader, especially with Soren to kick him in the ass when needed.

And we get to meet Sam! For those new to the series, this is a name we've seen several times before, and her relationship with Kingsley is the finest kind of bittersweet. While I still want to hear how he finds Juliette, this was so perfectly done, I'm happy to wait.

I'm yet again amazed  by the poignancy of the Sinners' stories, along with the sizzle of the sex. It's Kingsley's book....of course it's got plenty of hot scenes! The man earned the title King of Kink. And you get to hear how. The book's out today, what are you waiting for? Go see him battle for his crown and his subjects.
