My ReviewWell, I simply do not know what to do with myself now. JLA has struck again and kicked my butt with her amazing books.
First off, I would not recommend reading this review if you haven't read The Prince or really the Wicked Trilogy as a whole.
Holy crap! I am just floored. I have found myself struggling with JLA's books for a little while now since her main characters and story felt so...Idk similar? Idk. Anyway, with that in mind, I went into this book not expecting to love it. Well, I did. I did freaking love it.
The King picks up about a month after The Prince after Caden was a huge douche canoe to Brighton after they started getting close. Now in "The King", Brighton is still searching for the fae who killed her mom and hurt her in a seemingly random attack. This leads to a lot of conflict with Brighton and the other characters in this story. Mainly because they want to keep her safe and don't think she's able to handle herself on her own.
Let's talk romance and sexy scenes. DAAAAAMN! The romance in this book was off the mutha-freaking charts. I was swooning almost every time Brighton and Caden were in the same room together. Yum. Just yum. Honestly, I just took their arguments together as foreplay.
Now if you're familiar with any of JLA's writing you know she tends to like to torture our characters. This torture was beyond messed up. I was with Brighton every step of the way and felt for and with her throughout those beautifully written chapters.
The ending, let's talk about the ending. Screw the ending. I hated it. It sucks and why oh why does the next book have to come out NEXT YEAR!!! I don't think I can wait that long. I might die!!! Okay, maybe not that extreme but I am still very sad about the wait.
The King is an amazing addition to not only the Wicked Trilogy but to Brighton and Caden's story as well. JLA does an amazing job of making us feel for and with the characters and making us feel immersed in her world. I wanted to be there and eat all the foo- I mean meet all the characters. This is a must-read!
