WICKED CHARMING (Wicked Ever After, #1)
PURCHASE ON AMAZON
He’s at the top of the world.
He’s rich, sought after, and in control.
And he’s bored.
A string of one-night stands have left Samul Charming increasingly dissatisfied. When his mother pushes him to settle down, his best friends come up with a brilliant plan:
Audition the submissives at The Kingdom.
The problem is, Charm knows who he wants: the only girl to challenge him, while submitting as naturally as breathing.
But he can’t have her.
With the entire club watching and his parents expecting him to marry soon, Charm decides to settle.
But love in the Kingdom is never simple and it is never painless.
And Charm is about to be reminded of that.
What happens when Prince Charming loses the horse and takes up a whip instead?
You get a different kind of happy ending…
I love fairy tale retellings, and if you add in some kink, you are guaranteed that I would be all over it. A magical kingdom makes way for The Kingdom, a BDSM club ruled by the owner and his three ‘princes’. I was hooked from the mysterious opening lines with their dark-ish tinge that set the tone for the rest of the book. Each of the characters introduced in this novella was deeply intriguing and I enjoyed the creative twist on the old classic of Cinderella. The sexy times were steamy and the relationship between Charm and Celeste was on fire. It’s a good thing that all of the above elements were so strong because I felt at times that these things happened at the expense of others.
I had a hard time buying into the motives and reactions of these characters and I felt some essential details were left unaddressed. However, as I mentioned above, the other elements in this book was so strong that I found myself willing to forget all that and enjoy the book. Enough to make me want to dive into the other books in the series immediately. If you are looking for a fairy tale with an edge, a unique and creative story to enjoy for an hour or so, Wicked Charming is for you.
