About KING

From New York Times bestselling author Cassia Leo comes a romance about taking chances, double lives, and falling madly in love with the one person you’re supposed to want dead.

Never steal from a king.

Down on her luck in Las Vegas, Isabel “Izzy” Lake turns to the regulated prostitution industry. But her first day on the job ends abruptly when her client dies, and his suitcase contains over a million dollars.

Izzy takes the money and sets off to a small town on the other side of the country, where she attempts to live a low-profile life. A few weeks into her new country girl lifestyle, she finds owning an old fixer-upper isn’t so fun when you’re a city girl with zero DIY skills.

Izzy’s handsome new neighbor, Kingston Jameson, is all too eager to fix her leaky faucet and warm the cold side of her bed. It’s not long before she finds herself falling for King. But is he really the sweet-talking country boy he claims to be, or has he come to collect more than her heart?

***

Kingston “King” Jameson knew he shouldn’t have let Garrett pick up the suitcase full of cash. And he sure as hell never expected Garrett to die at a brothel and get robbed by a prostitute.

King needs to get the suitcase – and the secret item hidden in the lining – before his boss kills him.

He has one problem: The girl who stole the suitcase has hidden it very well. She left her entire life behind in Las Vegas. She’s got nothing left to lose. If King wants that suitcase, he needs to get close to her. Close enough to watch her every move. To know her deepest secrets.

Okay, he has two problems: He’s also fallen in love with the girl he’s supposed to kill.

Izzy is a firecracker, that is for sure! She is independent, stubborn, super smart and full of one liners. Izzy is also on the run. She took something that didn’t belong to her and now after clues were left behind as to who she was, she has the wrong people after her.

Enter King AKA Colton. Super hot, ex-military turned hit man. King works for the wrong people…not by choice but out of obligation and you wonder how and why he came to be a hitman. Colton tracks Izzy down and pretends to be her “neighbor” who is just super helpful, and super hot and Izzy’s judgement gets clouded by that hotness!! LOL

The story was fast paced and kept me turning page after page. The climax was building and building as things heat up. I was literally on the edge of my seat in suspense waiting to see what finally happens to these star crossed lovers and that’s where I felt let down. All of this build up, all of this intrigue, all of the cloak and dagger and the ending was not leaving me feeling like I needed a cigarette. It left me saying, no, no, no…it did not just end like that!!! I wanted more!! I wanted more of what I had just read!! Unfortunately the end did not match the story I had been so enraptured in. The ending wasn’t horrible but I wish it had more meat, more gore…just more something!! I still enjoyed the characters, the fast pace and watching these two navigate dark waters!

Synopsis

My love wand is on a strike.

As bad as that blows, pun unintended, it’s ten times worse for me. I’m a male escort, but not just any escort, I’m the escort. The one with a mile-long waiting list and a pristine reputation that’s very well-deserved.

Only now, I’m on hiatus. Because after years of pleasing women all over the city, my man missile decides to get finicky. And the only woman he wants? Someone I can never have—my best friend’s younger sister, the nerdy and awkwardly adorable Sienna.

She’s working at the agency this summer, keeping me organized, handling paperwork, and most importantly, keeping me on track to finish writing my book about sex and intimacy, which is due to my publisher in thirty days.

She thinks I hate her, that I don’t want her here. The truth is much more twisted. I get hard every time she walks into my office. Her wide blue eyes and pouty mouth drive me wild with desire, and if she stays, I’m not sure how much longer I can stay away from her.

Little Miss Overachiever says she’s here to help? Fine. I’m going to put her nerdy, curvy tush to work.

I’m a fan of Kendall Ryan and love her stuff but for some reason this book wasn’t what I thought it was going to be. As far as a review the blurb sums this book up perfectly. Case runs a high profile escort service and he is in high demand. He is hot, rich and living his best life. Sienna is his best friend’s little sister and has come to work for him as his assistant/office manager. Since she has come to work for him, he can’t help but to be drawn to her or keep his eyes off of her. Normally that wouldn’t be a problem but it’s turned into a huge one for him, especially with him being the top male escort around. He doesn’t seem to “want” anyone but her and now its affecting his business.

Does he act on his feelings and risk his friendship with his best friend? Does he know how to have a normal relationship? Is he ready? While we find the answers to all of these questions, it was fun to watch Case and Sienna’s personal and working relationship grow. Some of the things that happened were a little unbelievable for me. This book had all the right pieces but for me, they didn’t fit together quite as well as I was hoping for but still worth the read.

Before I get into my review on the book, I’d like to address the hot AF guy on the cover!! Wowza! Super hotness right there…what is that boy’s name!! LOL

Back to the book, it was super, super cute and a definite feel good book. Raleigh has been lusting after Ezra for YEARS! Only Ezra never noticed her because she’s a painfully shy, awkward girl. Tragedy hits her family followed up by something traumatic happening to her to make her uneasy around certain people. Did I mention that she is super clumsy as well? I thought it would be annoying but it actually made her all that more endearing. Ezra is super hot, super popular and the town’s most eligible bachelor. He’s also the high school football and baseball coach in the same school Raleigh works in.

Through a series of events, Raleigh aka Ms. Unnoticed suddenly gets noticed by her long time crush Ezra. It’s adorable to see him see her like it was the first time. I feel for her and her insecurities and it was heartwarming to watch these two fall in love. This is not only a love story. It’s about the underdog surprising herself and getting exactly what she deserves. Storyline was great and kept moving. It was a quick read and a solid book all around.

Not even gonna lie…I was a little confused at first with this book. But by the end I had it figured out. Super twisty. Lots of laughs. Lots of ups and downs and to be honest some parts that were just plain sad. But I liked it a lot. The characters, although one was really damaged, found humor in life and it really brightened the story up for me. I enjoyed it a lot and the end really brought it all home for me.

Excerpt

Panicked, I sit up, gaping in disbelief at the person standing in the doorway. I grasp at the sheet, I frantically try to cover the most crucial bits of me, while feeling completely mortified. He, on the other hand, can’t wipe that damn smirk off his face.

What the fuck?

His head cocks sideways and his lips twitch into an even bigger grin that I’d probably find sexy—if I wasn’t two knuckles deep and showing him more of me than any guy has seen of me in a long time.

“Well, I have to say,” he drawls in a low, husky voice, “women do a lot of shit to try to get my attention, but this is definitely up there as the most original.”

I can’t even comprehend what he’s saying, because I’m frozen on the spot and trying to work out what the hell he’s doing in my room. Is this some kind of sick joke? Is he planning on attacking me? My eyes dart to the phone on the wall, but they switch back to him when he walks closer.

Fuck.

He steps out of the shadows, giving me a better look at his face and—

Double fuck.

What the heck is the lead singer of The Vision doing in my hotel room?

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry, so my body decides to do both. I can’t think straight, but I’m doing my best to stop freaking the fuck out so I can try to figure a way out of this mess. I’m so unbelievably embarrassed. And naked, apart from this flimsy sheet. I should probably get dressed. The problem is, doing anything at this point feels impossible.

“So, do you speak?” he asks, jolting me out of my thoughts. “I mean, we’ve established that you can moan quite well.”

Oh God.

“I had a friend once, who was mute,” he muses, “we drifted apart because our conversations were always very one-sided.”

“I am not mute,” I snap, glaring at him.

“Great, then you can start by telling me what you’re doing.” He laughs and rubs his jaw. “I mean, it’s pretty obvious what you were doing, I’m just not sure why. Not that I didn’t appreciate the show,” he quickly adds. “Trust me, I did.” His dark eyes flash with amusement. “It’s refreshing to meet a girl who doesn’t mind opening herself up.”

What the ever loving fuck…?

How can he casually crack jokes like he isn’t the slightest bit embarrassed about walking in on me? I don’t trust myself to speak, so I just glare at him.

“Can I get you anything, like a drink?” he offers. “Or maybe offer you a hand…?”

“You could offer me some privacy?” I suggest, my body shaking with rage.

“Privacy, huh?” He grins at me. “Sure. I’ll turn around.”

He’ll turn around?

“Or you could leave, the same way you came in?” I retort.

“You seem pretty agitated over there. I’m guessing I interrupted the finale? Have you thought about trying some relaxation breathing?” he suggests, “it’s supposed to be great for relieving tension.”

“Are you done?” I growl.

“Are you?” he asks. “Maybe you should be the one leaving?”

A surge of anger hits me. Why the hell should I be the one to leave when he’s the one in my room? I wrestle myself up so I’m sitting on the edge of the bed, my knuckles white from clinging onto the sheet so tightly. While I’m at it, why am I the one who’s embarrassed?

If I can’t get myself off in the privacy of my own room—

I stop, mid-thought as I look around, an uneasy feeling creeping into my stomach. The clothes scattered outside the bathroom. The freaking guitar leaning against the couch that I somehow neglected to notice. The champagne. The note…there was no upgrade.

I’m the one in the wrong room.

And I was seconds from climaxing all over Brix Wilson’s bed.

My heart pounds as a trickle of sweat makes it’s way down the back of my neck. I swat it away, while trying hard to think up an excuse for being in his room that sounds even half plausible.

Who am I kidding? There’s no getting out of this. Not without me looking like a complete fuckwit. Sure, they gave me the wrong key, which makes this whole mess not my fault, but as if he’s going to believe that.

I take a deep breath and reach for my clothes, somehow managing to dress myself while showing minimal skin. Not that he hasn’t seen everything already.

God, he’s seen more of my than I have.

I stand up, nearly losing my balance. My legs feel like jelly, so even walking feels like a hard task, but I have to get out of here. And the longer I wait, the harder escaping is going to be.

“I have to go,” I mumble.

“So soon? You went to all this trouble of getting in here and performing for me, and now you’re leaving? Where’s the harm in hanging around for a little longer?” he presses. “I was looking forward to seeing how far you’d go.”

I stalk over to the door, avoiding all physical contact with him. He can’t wipe the smirk off his face, but I can’t let myself think too hard about what just happened, or I’ll lose control. As I close the door behind me, I hear his voice call out after me;

“What, I don’t even get an encore?”

Ok, I want to start by saying that I really enjoyed this book about Gia and Gunner – absolutely loved them! Two lost souls who are closed off to the prospect of love and having a relationship due to both having very horrid experiences. Watching these two break down each others walls and actually help heal wounds that run deep and long was heartwarming. They definitely have chemistry and while the underlying issues were dark, their characters were comical and uplifting at times.

With all this great fanfare for this story they do have a previous history with each other from college and it is touched upon but in chunks and bits and pieces and for me, it did not mesh well at all. I was able to piece together things and form a relationship and connection in my head but I found it awkward at times. I think that because I didn’t read book one maybe I missed something to feel kinda thrust into the middle of the book and get bits and pieces along the way. You do find out how it all fits but it was just introduced bizarrely to me and made me scratch my head. I loved both main characters with all their flaws and complexities with the theme of how they heal each other and really did enjoy this book.

“You had sex in here!” I say incredulously.
“What?” Guilt slices through his face.
“That’s why you gave me a buttload of errands to run, you got some booty.”
He sits on the edge of his desk looking like sex in a suit. Men wearing suits were never my jam—I always had a libido for guys from the blue-collar crowd—but the way the suit hugs his biceps is making my vagina jump for joy, and the way his ironed black slacks look around his waist with a leather belt makes me want to melt in a puddle.
“If you’re not next in line to suck my dick, I suggest you stay the fuck outta my business.” His voice is cold, and I swallow hard. I bet you a whole dollar my cheeks turn fifty shades of pink.
I tilt my chin in the air, inhaling. “You smell that?”
“Smell what?”
“It’s me slapping you with a sexual harassment suit.” My threat is as dead as a doorknob, but he doesn’t need to know that.
“The moment you sue me is the day hell will freeze over.”
“How so?”
“Because under your hateful glares, you’re starving for my dick.”
I want to wipe that stupid smirk off his face. “Whatever. I wouldn’t touch you if you were a cure to a disease I had.” The lie rolls off my tongue, and I twirl the strand of hair that floats in front of my forehead with my index finger.
“Liar.” His gaze clings to mine. “I fucked enough women to know when one wants my cock. When you look at me your eyes are begging for it.”
I stare down at the carpet. What can I say? I can’t lie anymore. Every time I’m around him my ovaries are on fire, ready to explode.
“If you got fucked properly on a regular basis, you wouldn’t walk around with a stick up your rainbow ass.”
Gunner doesn’t have any filters. I’m not offended because he’s the type to tell you if your poop stinks and if he doesn’t like you.
That’s just part of his personality. Last week, he asked Mason, during a business lunch meeting, if he dipped his toothbrush in crap because his mouth smelled like butthole.
“Don’t worry, we won’t be having any hanky-panky. Fucking my employee is as appealing as shoving my dick in a vise.”

August is still upset that his best friend and wife ran off together betraying him. Winter is the daughter of his enemy and needs a place to stay. It doesn’t hurt that she’s gorgeous and sassy. August is tempted to seek out revenge by using Winter and breaking her. But when the two are together, revenge is the farthest thing from their mind. Tempted and unable to resist, how will their secret relationship turn out?

“I become transfixed on how cute she is. Everything in me says I need to fuck with her so bad she runs home to her daddy and complains. Truth is, though, I just want to fuck with her because it’s fun. Because she gives it right back.”

I always have fun in K. Webster’s taboo world and I loved Winter and August’s story…love it when the right people end up together in the end. August’s ex was definitely a piece of work and he really deserved a happier ending. This story was hot, fun and just the naughty kind of read that you expect from K. Webster. Every little girl needs a daddy to take care of her and make her feel loved. Can’t wait for the next book in this forbidden town where pretty much everyone is in an inappropriate relationship. Thank goodness!

You need to read all of these taboo tales! They are such a fun escape and it’s great to see all of the corruption happening in one small town. You never know what’s going to happen next!

But then he takes on Cayleigh and Chance as his new trainees and everything starts to change. Will Oliver learn that he deserves someone more than for a few weeks or one night?

Love.

I wonder if Oliver will ever allow himself to feel it. To let in a person and show them everything. All the pain, all the heartache, and all the happiness.”

This is the first book I’ve read in The Sins of Seven series and I think if I had read the rest I might have had a greater appreciation of the series. I liked the steamy BDSM scenes and the healing of the notorious Dominant Oliver. I thought this story was going to be more about a ménage relationship with interactions with some other subs. But it was more than that and quite different than I thought it was going to be. I enjoyed the book as it unfolded and the characters were definitely compelling. I’m curious about what the rest of the series involves.

I would definitely recommend this series to anyone that likes BDSM romances. It’s light enough If you like the Dom/sub dynamic and some kinky along with the sweet romantic relationships.
