Review: The Dark King by Gina Maxwell

Review: The Dark King by Gina Maxwell

I thought a weekend away would be the perfect escape. Until I woke up married and trapped… by the king of the Dark Fae.

For Bryn Meara, a free trip to the exclusive and ultra-luxe Nightfall hotel and casino in Vegas should’ve been the perfect way to escape the debris of her crumbling career. But waking up from a martini-and-lust-fueled night to find herself married to Caiden Verran, the reclusive billionaire who owns the hotel and most of the city, isn’t the jackpot one would think. It seems her dark and sexy new husband is actual royalty—the fae king of the Night Court—and there’s an entire world beneath the veil of Vegas.

Whether light or shadow, the fae are a far cry from fairy tales, and now they’ve made Bryn a pawn in their dark games for power. And Caiden is the most dangerous of all—an intoxicating cocktail of sin and raw, insatiable hunger. She should run. But every night of passion pulls Bryn deeper into his strange and sinister world, until she’s no longer certain she wants to leave…even if she could.

The Dark King is a sexy and entertaining read that will captivate readers and leave them dying for more!

From the moment I picked up this book, I was hooked. When we first meet up with Bryn, she’s lost her job and has been offered a dream vacation. When she arrives in Vegas, it’s like all the stars are aligned and luck is finally on her side. But when she wakes up the next morning, Bryn gets more than she bargained for…

I was pulled into Bryn and Caiden’s story from the very first page. I loved their meet-cute and spellbinding chemistry. This story was filled with lots of great fantasy elements as well as humor and a take-no-prisoners female lead character. Bryn totally gave Caiden a run for his money and certainly brought out that dominant alpha male side. Together these two not only steamed up the pages but kept me on my toes as their story unraveled.

The Dark King is sexy, fun, and entertaining. I loved the plot and the easy flow of the story. The characters were equally flawed, intriguing, and frustrating all at the same time, and I mean this in the best possible way. I loved the world this author has created. It not only delivered on the steam but also gave me lots of good twists to keep me to glued to the pages. I can’t wait to discover more of this world that this author has created.

*I was provided an ARC copy of this book, via the publisher & NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review*
