Homeless. Hungry. Desperate. Doe has no memories of who she is or where she comes from. A notorious career criminal just released from prison, King is someone you don’t want to cross unless you’re prepared to pay him back in blood, sweat, sex or a combination of all three. King’s future hangs in the balance. Doe’s is written in her past. When they come crashing together, they will have to learn that sometimes in order to hold on, you have to first let go. King is the first book in a two part series. Tyrant is the name of the second book due out August 2015.
Two Boundless Stars
I was sent an offer for two audio books for the price of one; King was one of the books I chose. We did a cover reveal a few months back on Book 3 in the series, and I always wanted to go back and read/listen to the beginning because, frankly, the covers are just darn YUMMY!
Let me just say, King is a jackass through most of this novel, and I really don’t see his appeal, other than his looks. He treats Doe like shit, I mean; he is holding her hostage for fuck sake! Hello! He has some sick twisted need to own her; that is crossing the lines of psychoville. Yet there she goes; just drinking that Kool aid because he is hot to look at, and because she has major case of Stockholm syndrome. Thank goodness Preppy provided comic relief for the most part, but then he wasn’t too right in the head either. Oh lordy!
I always find it amusing when there is so much melodrama in a story, you gotta either laugh or roll your eyes. When the males in the stories are given emotions that are so farfetched it’s laughable. I tell my friends; “men are easy, you’re putting your emotions on them and making them complicated. It’s not the case; either feed them or fuck them, if neither works, they're probably tired. Simple.” Complex emotions and men…NOPE…. This isn’t the first novel I’ve read where the men are given these complicated emotions that aren’t realistic. Just catering to every woman’s wish; their men thought and felt. Which I guess is fine, but I tend to roll my eyes at it because men aren’t as emotionally complex, or sophisticated as we wish they were. But then I guess that why so many women love romance.
Overall the story was OK. It was extremely melodramatic with so much going on, it just put emphasis on how much of a bad guy King really is. Doe never became an endearing heroine that I fell in love with. For that matter none of the characters did. I am annoyed that the story left such a cliffhanger, because I am intrigued enough that I want to know what happens next, but I don’t know if I can take another dose of so much “DRAMA”.
