King of Me (The King Trilogy #3) by Mimi Jean Pamfiloff

“You’re asking me to love you?” asked Mia.
He slowly scratched his thick black stubble. “I suppose I am.”

What if you were asked to love the one man on earth you couldn’t trust, you feared, who betrayed you at every turn? Could you do it to save the people you hold dear?

Mia Turner is ready to give it all—her body, her heart, her soul—to the mysterious, ruthless billionaire who holds all the cards to saving her family. But when this dangerous, sinfully sexy man, simply known as King, demands something more, something horrifying, Mia will be forced to face the impossible truth about their lives.

Sometimes the truth brings salvation.
And sometimes the truth breaks you.

My Thoughts:

Wow! I had to let my nerves settle before writing my review of King of Me. Once again, Pamfiloff delights and thrills readers with this final installment in the trilogy. In this book, we uncover all the answers that have plagued our minds in book 1 and 2. We understand who King is and get to see a glimpse of who he was prior to being cursed. King of Me starts off at a heart racing pace, and doesn’t let up until the end. I couldn’t put the book down but wanted to close my eyes at some of the harrowing close calls that Mia endured. And boy did she ever endure. However, seeing King as he was pre-curse allowed her to release the budding feelings for him that she was trying to suppress. She loved him. Absolutely loved him. Seeing him pre-curse also gave her the crazy idea that she could change the course of his future just with her presence. Unfortunately, fate is a cruel mistress and she demanded that things play out on the predestined course. Her course. Mia’s world is thrown topsy-turvy and its only through sheer grit and a little of her gift that she survives it all. I love how Pamfiloff throws curveball after curveball after curveball into the mix. She is a master of red-herrings and I absolutely love it. The Mack storyline left me absolutely speechless and I demand!!! (pleaseohpleaseohplease) a happily ever after for him :).

The conclusion of the story was bittersweet. Never fear, there is a happily ever after for King and Mia but it also marks the conclusion of such an amazing series (boo and hiss). But there is juuuuuust enough unfinished business that the saga could continue (see previous comment about Mack *wink*).

This trilogy in one word: EPIC!
