Bloody f*ckin cliffhanger!!!

Holy moley what a intense gripping book I just read. I honestly think I held my breath while reading it. This is my first book by a new arthur and mercy can she tell a story.

*First time reading author
*KU read

So for the first time reading Ruby Wolff I have to say I was intrigued by her characters and fantasy land. It did take me a bit to get into the book. I did leave this book to read another book and come back to this one. I do not like to do this, but I wanted to give this story another chance. I am so happy that I did. Once the story started going I was really into the book and the book started flowing.

I am hoping to see some questions answered and that Ruby kee

This book will pull you in right from the start and have you wanting more and more.
Alice and Angel will have your heart racing, pulse pounding with their back and forth action packed emotional read with so many twists and turns you won't be able to put it down. So can't wait for the next one.

I received an eARC copy of this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
Trigger warnings: torture, murder

This book is about a mafia crime lord who plots out his revenge after being put in jail for 2 years and unexpectedly meets a woman who rocked his world and caught him off guard. While I enjoy a good mafia romance book, I never read a book that features a mafia family based in London. I'm not sure if it's unheard of or un

Kings Revenge (Kings Duet Book 1) – by Ruby Wolff

I love a great dark mafia love story. Kings Revenge falls into this category for me. Ruby Wolff is a new author to me, so you always go in wondering. In this case though she had me from the first line in Chapter One - “17520 hours. That tells you one thing, someone is either being held captive or in jail. Bang! I’m in!

Angel Frost was the front man for his mob “family”. So when he took the rap for one of his brothers and ended up spending two years

Title: King's Revenge
Series: Kings Duet #1
Author: Ruby Wolff Ruby Wolff
Genre: Mafia Romance, Enemies to Lovers, Dark Romance
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐/5

This was my first read by Ruby Wolff (and actually I think it is her debut novel (maybe?)) and I really enjoyed it! It has some fairly typical dark-mafia vibes, but Wolff does a great job of creating a unique story and adding original elements.

This novel is set in London and focuses on Angel, the assumed leader of the Frost family. Angel i

Ok just wow. This book has everything I love. We get a sassy heroine who is strong tenacious and refuses to be a welcome mat for the hero. We get an OTT alpha who has no problem taking care of business and will do anything to make sure his leading lady knows just who she belongs to.
Alice's life has been anything but a fairytale. She suffered a great loss at a young age and learned early on that life is rough and hard. Angel is a man on a mission. He is out to get the people who have not only wro

This is the 1st part of the King's Duet Series by the author.

Angel is now back after 2 years of imprisonment for a crime he did not commit. Taking an oath of vengeance upon the people who put him in prison and tortured him, he tries to go back to his routine life. But once he looks at Alice, he is determined to make her his.

This is a proper Mafia Romance Novel with a lot of action, torture, a little suspense, a gripping story and a cliffhanger that will make the readers want to read more.

If you are in need of an action packed, mysterious, steamy hot, witty, unpredictable book this is for you, the book since chapter one had me wondering in the unknown of what will happen next, every characters gives something to the book making it a wonderful read that you will love, our main characters are out of this world and you will want more of them, can wait for the next book in this series.

I really enjoyed this mafia read, the h was not a timid character which made for a great interaction with the H. This book is a full length book BUT it continues in book 2. I'm not usually a fan of duets but this book is totally worth it, I just should have saved it and read both back to back, that's my only issue. If you like mafia, strong alpha H and sassy outspoken h's this book is for you.

I took a chance on this one as it is a new author to me. I am so glad that I did. It was an intense interesting thrilling action packed book from beginning to end. I do have to say that the end was shocking and upsetting as I did not realize it was a cliff hanger.

Angel is both the devil and an angel. He has been in prison for quite some time. He is now out and seeking revenge against those that have done his family wrong. But little does he realize his family is in more trouble than he thinks.

Wow... King’s Revenge is an enthralling read. It’s full of suspense and action with a good bit of romance too. Angel and Alice complement each other. Alice has a heartbreaking past that she’s trying to escape but it seems like it might be catching up with her. Alice is not week though and is ready to put up a fight if she has to. Angel is a man who’s name strikes fear in others but under the cold exterior is a loving man who’s fighting some demons of his own. The two draw comfort and strength fr ...more

This book blew me away. I wss emotionally invested in this story. Angel Frost is the roughest, bad$#s head of mafia controlling the London area. He does what needs to be done. He views women has f&$k them and leave them. He has no desire to have a relationship. Alice walks into the bar owned by the mafia. She asks for a job. Their clandestine connection meant neither one was willing to give up this opportunity.

There are so many turns and twists with loss, devastation and angst. Alice has many s

WHAT??!

Is there another book? How can a book and like this? This book is very different than what I am used to reading. Never heard of London mafia. The story seems to drag on ant longer than it should. There are so many things going on in this story and a lot of characters and secrets. Disappointed a family member died not sure I understand why. Not happy with this book at the moment.

I went into this story blinded and was in aww of how it grabbed me from the very beginning to the very ending. I read this book in one sitting because I was hooked. This is a fast pace steamy hot alpha men that is a take charge and handles everything smoothy. I have no words on how to explain the hotness of the sex scenes and the feel of the words coming off the pages..

Really good start to a duet! Loved the story and especially loved the strong characters. Ruby spins a tangled web of life, love and the war to stay on top in a Mafia family. Can’t wait for the second book to finish Angel and Alice’s story!

Wow.
What a way to start a series.
I was gripped from cover to cover.
So much happens in this book that you won't be able to look away.
The words within the pages and characters portrayed are so addictive, you'll feel like you are right there beside them.
Cannot wait for book two!!!
