This book is like a giant storehouse of sexual tension and frustration. Both of them are wildly and devastatingly attracted to each other and completely unable to act upon it. It isn't until the last 15% of the book that we finally see them together. The author takes this entire time to build and cement the relationship of Kate and Trey from business colleagues to best friends to lovers and by the time they get together even as a reader I was sighing in relief!
That being said the book is amazing and Trey Mark... He can have the ladies melting even with a smirk.
If our love was lingerie, it’d be a corset, one laced so tightly that it takes your breath.
If our love was lingerie, it would be drawn on her skin with ink, a tattoo designed to bend and grow with her.
If our love was lingerie, it would be a see-through lace that would share everything while still teasing the hell out of both parties.
If our love was lingerie, it’d be leather, thin strips of binding that could withstand a hundred years of war and peace, fights and love-making. It would yield and give, yet never rip or break. It would be built to last, to wear forever.
If our love was lingerie, it would never come off.
I'm off to hunt for more Alexandra Torre books!...more
This book is another retelling of the age-old beauty and the beast tale - a theme I keep reading but can't seem to get enough of!
I love how every authThis book is another retelling of the age-old beauty and the beast tale - a theme I keep reading but can't seem to get enough of!
I love how every author uses their creativity and incorporates their own elements and tries to make something unique out of this same theme. So the question remains...Was it done right? Well yes! The cold king definitely delivers.
The cold king, as he is known to his subjects is a powerful immortal king who has been ruling for centuries. His subjects are utterly terrified of him. It all begins when the king makes a summons for a new personal servant and Callie being the town outcast is forced to fill in for the position despite her fear.
Despairing her loss of freedom and terrified of her fate, Callie loathes the king. But life inside the castle walls turns out to be completely unexpected. Her feelings of loathing begin to fade as she realises that the castle is filled with other servants who have all been town rejects but their lives have turned out for the better ever since they have come to the castle. She finds a new found acceptance among this band of misfits. She also begins to harbour tender feelings as she slowly discovers the man beneath the terrible mask.
I tried to keep guessing in vain till the very end about what will ultimately break the curse and I have to say I was very satisfied with the way things turned out. Yes there were things that the king did that were wrong a few times but being a monarch his arrogance is to be expected.
Overall a 4.5 rating... But I'll round it off to 5 stars as I liked a book a lot!...more
