[I received a digital arc for an honest review]

The King is the second novella in Jennifer L Armentrout’s Wicked trilogy. It picks up after the end of the first novella, The Prince. This one is full of sexual tension, life or death situations, and surprising revelations.

The King fits right in the rest of the Wicked trilogy seamlessly. Brighton continues to be strong and independent while still remaining clueless when it comes to Caden’s true feelings towards her. We also a finally given answer to questions about Cadens past and his true connection with Brighton. The best part is the fact that Caden and Brighton’s sexual tension finally comes to a head and it was everything I wanted it to be.

He kissed God, he kissed like a man starving. He kissed as if he were going to devour me, and I wanted that. I needed it.

Let’s talk about a trope that not everyone loves but Jennifer L Armentrout is a pro at writing. Boy likes girl but knows that being with him will only get her hurt. Therefore, boy pushes girl away by being cruel and indifferent towards her. Frustratingly girl can’t see that he’s doing it to protect her and believes his cruel words. That’s about the gist of half of The King, and I was there for every predictable second of it. However, because of the predictably, including the cliffhanger that I guessed long before it was revealed, I had to subtract a star.
