It’s the dirtiest fairy tale of all…. Charm. Beast. Wolf. Everyone in the Kingdom–an exclusive, decadent BDSM club–knows the three friends and business partners. But no one has ever gotten close enough to touch them. Sex is easy, even when it hurts. It’s all any of them wanted. Love is off the table. Love is the thing none of them ever saw coming. In the Kingdom, control is everything. Who wields it and who surrenders. But some things even they can’t control. Welcome to the Kingdom, where every happily ever after hurts in the most wicked of ways.
WICKED CHARMING (Wicked Ever After, #1)
PURCHASE ON AMAZON
He’s at the top of the world. He’s rich, sought after, and in control. And he’s bored. A string of one-night stands have left Samul Charming increasingly dissatisfied. When his mother pushes him to settle down, his best friends come up with a brilliant plan: Audition the submissives at The Kingdom. The problem is, Charm knows who he wants: the only girl to challenge him, while submitting as naturally as breathing. But he can’t have her. With the entire club watching and his parents expecting him to marry soon, Charm decides to settle. But love in the Kingdom is never simple and it is never painless. And Charm is about to be reminded of that.
I love fairy-tale retellings, especially when they are way more adult than the original. so I was super excited to get my hands on this. It was definitely an erotic retelling as we find the Kingdom to be a BDSM club and the ball to be a sub audition.
Charm is missing something in his world. He doesn't really want to take over for his father but knows he has to, he is bored in the one place he used to find joy and everyone is pressuring him to do something about it. But when the bartender catches his eye everything gets a lot more interesting. Celeste is a bit sassy but all the submissive that Charm is looking for, except she is the bartender. It seems like no one wants him to be happy, but demand he figure things out.
This story moved pretty quickly and I was at times a bit put-off by Mal's and even Charm's behavior. I didn't quite get the reasoning behind some of their actions. I also feel like I wanted more background from Celeste other than the little information we got about her. There was a lot of heat packed into the pages and story that had me interested. There was also enough chatter and happenings from the other characters to make me want to see what happens with them as well.
