Review: Tiffany Reisz's "The King (The Original Sinners: The White Years, #2)"

The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog are pleased to be a part of the Blog Tour for Tiffany reisz's "The King ((The Original Sinners: The White Years, #2)." 


Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this unholy threesome can raise him to his rightful place as a rule of Manhattan's king kingdom.

Bouncing from bed to bed on the Upper East Side, Kingsley Edge is brilliant, beautiful and utterly debauched. No carnal act of 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… 

Review-Jo Rushton:

When I first began "The King" I wasn't sure if I would enjoy it as much as the previous books in the series. For me the series has always been about Nora and Søren. Don't get me wrong, I've always liked Kingsley Edge, liked him a lot and it wasn't as though he was a secondary character. No one could ever call Kingsley a secondary character, especially with his larger than life personality, the eccentric way that he dressed and his luxurious Rolls Royce. I always felt that he appeared to be a man that belonged in another era. Kingsley Edge was always there as part of Nora and Søren's life but I had never really thought about the man behind all of his outlandish and kinky ways, that was until now. 

After reading this book, I can honestly say that I have never loved Kingsley Edge more than I do now. This story has completely opened my eyes to the real Kingsley and I love every single thing about him. In "The King" I was transported back in time, back to a time when Kingsley was still discovering who he was and what he wanted to do with his life. In reading his journey, I discovered a man I never knew existed and I want to say thank you to Tiffany Reisz for writing this story and allowing me the opportunity to get to know the real Kingsley Edge. 

"A king should be arresting, powerful. Everyone should notice when he walks in a room."

The Kinglsey I now know as the true Kinglsey is the most loving and generous man. A man that is fiercely loyal, standing up for his friends and the people who shared his world of kink. I discovered the reasons behind his club and why it was so important to him.

He saw a building, old, Gothic,crumbling, like he was-awaiting rebirth. And people filled it, 
people with secrets. They needed him, needed his protection, needed his knowledge. 
They needed to kneel. They needed a king.

I absolutely loved reading about his journey to the top of his kingdom. It was a story that kept me engrossed throughout. I loved reading about all of his adventures and the relationships he made whilst on that journey, especially his relationship with his secretary, Sam. It melted my heart to find how much they loved one another and how well they got along. They made such a beautiful couple. 

He wanted nothing so much as to throw her Fridays on the floor and stay inside her 
until next Thursday. When had he become the sort of man who wanted to make 
love to a woman who wore Days of the Week underwear?

I was also surprised to find how deeply kingsley loved Søren and how much he needed him. Kinglsey and Søren had a unique relationship that also made my heart melt. Kingsley was a man with a big heart. He has so much love to give. I felt that, deep down he was a man who was vulnerable and desperate for someone to love him back with as much passion as he could give them. Sometimes, however, I found that because he loved so easily, he was quick to trust.. too quick. 

Another surprise was this man's humour. I found myself in stitches  laughing at some of his witty comments and one liners. he really is, without doubt, one of my most favourite characters in the book world.. a true  legend! 

"I got a new secretary last week."
"Where is she?" 
"Did you fuck her?"
"I didn't mean to. It was an accident."

"The King" kept me captivated from start to finish. There were a few shocking twists along the way and of course, there was as many kinky sex scenes as you would expect from this series. Tiffany Reisz sure can right the most erotic sex scenes that had me jumping into a cold shower. Kingsley was one hot, kinky man, although I was already aware of this. Whichever side of him I read about, whether it was the dominant, the submissive or even the lover the lover, i loved him. 

"You owned me...body and soul. Do you know why you owned me?"
"Tell me why."
"Because I wanted you to own me. And I wanted you to hurt me. And I wanted 
you to treat me like your property. And that's what made it beautiful."

I absolutely adore "The Original Sinners" series. It is filled with the most entertaining of characters that have kept me captivated and engaged throughout. Tiffany's writing is on an entirely other level. She has the ability to tell such an enchanting story. Every single book and character that she creates completely fascinates me and leaves me excited for the next part of the series. The Original Sinners is hands down, one of my most favourite of all the series' that I have read. I have a huge amount of love for it and it's characters and I cannot recommend it enough. 

This was yet again another outstanding addition to "The Original Sinners" series. If you are fan of this series this was an absolute must read and gets 5 amazing ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️  from me.

Before I go all I have left to say is LONG LIVE THE KING!!! VIVE LE ROI!!!


“How much trouble am I in for getting out of the car without permission?” Kingsley asked.

“None,” Søren said, and Kingsley was wildly disappointed. “Let’s go. We can make it back to school by tonight.”

Kingsley followed him back to the car. The driver opened the door for them. When they were alone again, Kingsley said, “Or…”

“Or what?” Søren demanded.

“Or we could find a hotel and fuck in a real bed for once.”

“We’re not on a date. And here I was wondering where the real Kingsley had gone.”

“What do you mean?” he asked as the driver opened the car door for them. He slipped inside and Søren followed. They were on the road again before Søren answered.

“When you were with Claire—I wasn’t sure you were the same Kingsley I know and barely tolerate.”

“Why? Because I like kids?”

“You were good with her.”

“Kids are fun,” he said. What else was there to say?

“I never considered you would like children.”

“Well…I do. So what?”

“Nothing,” Søren said, laughing to himself. “Nothing at all.”

“I know you see me as some kind of pervert,” Kingsley said. “But believe or not, I am a human being. Yes, I like kids. I might want kids someday. I don’t have much of a family anymore. If I want a family I’ll have to make my own. Sometimes I have thoughts that don’t have anything to do with sex. I’m not just your toy, you know. I have feelings and—”

His impassioned “I have feelings” speech ended abruptly when Søren grabbed him hard by the back of the hair and brought his mouth down in a brutal kiss. Kingsley almost pulled away so he could finish his tirade before realizing he wanted the kiss so much more than the fight.

Kingsley returned the kiss with equal and greater passion. Søren yanked Kingsley’s jacket off him and threw it on the floorboard. Kingsley pulled his own shirt off and rolled on to his back on the bench seat. He’d remember the sensation of leather on his bare back all his life.

“Have you ever had sex in the back of a Rolls Royce?” Kingsley asked, trying not to rip Søren’s shirt in his rush to unbutton it. He needed Søren’s skin on his skin right now.

“No,” Søren said. “But ask me that question again in an hour.”

Before Kingsley could respond to that, Søren grabbed his wrists, pinned them over Kingsley’s head and kissed him again—deeper, slower, but no less punitive. Kingsley groaned, and Søren slapped a hand over his mouth.

“Quiet,” Søren said into Kingsley’s ear. “We aren’t alone, and I’ll gag you until you choke if I have to. Understand?”

Kingsley nodded against Søren’s hand. A curtain and partition separated them from the driver. He couldn’t see them, but if they were loud enough, he could hear them. He’d disobeyed Søren’s orders to stay in the car, he’d yelled at him and talked back. He was going to get it this time.


Søren kissed him again. Kingsley kept his sounds of pleasure to a minimum even when Søren reached between their bodies, unzipped Kingsley’s pants, and stroked him hard. Every muscle in Kingsley’s stomach tightened. He sucked in his breath sharply from the shock of pleasure. It took every bit of self-control not to moan audibly.

“You like this?” Søren asked.

“God, yes, so much,” Kingsley said, lifting his hips against Søren’s hand. He spoke in French and English. He was about to lose control of more than his language skills if Søren didn’t stop touching him like that.

“I think you like it too much.” Søren rose up on his knees and looked down at Kingsley.

“I don’t. I really don’t. I like it exactly as much as you want me to.”

“You’re pathetic when you’re turned on.”

“I am so pathetic right now.”
