Suped Up: The King by Tiffany Reisz

Series: The Original Sinners 6 | The White Years 2
Format: eGalley
Release Date: November 25, 2014
Publisher: Harlequin MIRA
Source: Publisher via NetGalley
Genre: Erotica
BLURB:
Cunning. Sex. Pure nerve. Only this unholy threesome can raise him to his rightful place as a ruler of Manhattan's kink kingdom.

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


QUOTABLE QUOTES:
Rich people don't look rich. When you have enough money, you don't have to impress anyone. - Kingsley

It hurts coming back to life. It's brutal, dirty business...It's never easy-resurrection. It's violent and it hurts. -Soren



Every time I see a Tiffany Reisz release I get excited. She's my addiction and her books are like Christmas morning to me. To say that I'm fangirling over THE KING is an understatement and you know it's serious when GIFs are busted out like this...
For all intents and purposes, THE KING is how the 8th Circle (which is a joke at the expense of the priest), Kingley's exclusive BDSM Club, came to be or as Mr. Edge puts it, how Søren saved his life yet again. Suffice to say that it's a colorful and sensual backstory filled with beautiful people, Jesus freaks, hypocrites, and the staple pleasure and pain. Like every other The Original Sinners novel, THE KING is yet another unconventional love story, it's touching, pure, and horrific all at the same time. TReisz word not mine, she said she writes horror and one can look at it that way, I know a lot of you didn't quite warm up to The Siren.

Of TReisz unholy trinity, Kingsley Edge is my favorite. Though I have a girl crush on Nora, awed by Søren, Kingsley holds the tenderest part of my heart. I don't know why exactly, I think it's his reliability that endeared him to me the most. Everyone took their sabbatical, licked their wounds, and done their own shit but Kingsley is the only person who remained constant throughout, he's the glue that holds everyone together and IMO the person who truly loved unconditionally. It takes a big heart and an even bigger person to love equally (like loving Nora as much as he loved Søren) without feeling jealous or possessive. Kingsley is like Nora in some ways, his approach to love is innocent and trusting and it takes a lot to lose that love once he bestows it on you.

It's also worth noting that The White Years seems to have more plot and less sex compared to The Read Years. No complaints here, I'll take what I can get as far as TReisz is concerned, but I want to underline that observation because it matters especially if I'm trying to convince y'all to pick up and read The Original Sinners. Don't get me wrong, there's still some pretty vicious sexy scenes in the past couple of books but if I were to quantify it, it's lessened significantly. Personally it doesn't take away from the story, it's equally powerful like the The Red Years but in a more emotional way.

I know The Original Sinners can be a tough read but since this quadrilogy, The White Years, precedes The Red Years in terms of timelines, you might benefit from reversing the order and reading this first, ease yourself to TReisz brand of erotica and slowly work yourself up to The Red Years which some people consider dark erotica because of its hardcore BDSM elements. I guess The Original Sinners can be considered and acquired taste, then again I always veer off conformity so Kingsley & Co. has and always will be a perfect match for me.

  6. I read all the first books, but I haven't read the last two (The White Years)... I want to read them, your review makes me want to read them, I even have them, but I'm not enjoying erotica. I'm waiting for my mood to change to read them.

    1. It's very tame compared to the Red Years, heck it can even read as a very sexy romance

  7. I keep seeing this author around and I am curious, I guess when I decide to give erotica a good try she will be the one I go with.

  9. Okay, I'm gonna have to check out your addiction since you indulged in one of mine. :) I'm glad The King was so satisfying, Braine. It seems as though Reisz just knows how to spin a great story.

  10. I know a ton of people love this author, but I am just not sure she is for me. I think I gotta do a little more research first and if I decide I just might take your advice and start with The White Years. Great review!

  12. I'm still a big chicken about these, but I do enjoy reading the reviews to get a glimpse at what I'm missing. You really sketched out Kingsley's character nicely.

  13. I'm huge fan of this series, but I have to pick a favorite, it would definitely be the Red Years. I'm glad this is good too, it will be fun seeing how the 8 circle, came to be! I'm with you, Kingsley inspires tenderness, and it's not that I don't think that he's as strong as Nora or Zøren. I'm planing on getting to it soon :)
    I see it's another winner!
    Thanks Braine.

  15. Very fast skim of your review, Braine, as I have only read The Siren so far! But I'm truly happy to see that you're suped up about this :)
    Have a terrific Thursday, and happy reading!

  16. After my recent Fifty Shades discussion post; it's come to my attention that I really do need to read some better Erotica, and this novel has definite potential, gifs and all. I suppose I should probably work my way up to this one though. New series addiction, here I come!

    1. Oh gosh yes! 50 Shades should NOT be the benchmark

  17. I have a hard time getting into this series! It's probably because BDSM is typically not the kind of read I usually go for. I do like how well conceptualized Reisz's characters are, but they tend to be acquired tastes.

    Glad you loved this!

    1. I still hope that you'll give her a try someday. Have you read Anne Rice and liked her? If you answer yes, then you'll enjoy Reisz, I compare her writing to Rice. Their minds work the same ;)

  18. Yay!! I'm so glad we both enjoyed this one! Although, I'm not sure how you could go in reverse order because of the beginning and the end bits with Grace etc, but yes, not as hard core as the original series!

    1. That's true but as the bulk is King's story, I think Grace's can serve as a teaser? Or maybe I'm just a wonky reader like that. I can ignore some parts and settle with piecing it together later on.

  19. Oh Braine...I am so ashamed I have The Siren and the second book on my Nook..and when I read you fangirl I know I will kick myself for not reading them sooner:)
