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

Book Blurb

“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.


Toot's Review by Stacy Sabala

King has made Miss Turner, aka Mia, a deal. She will help break his curse and he will use the artifact to bring back her murdered brother. However in order to be successful she has to fall in love with King. She doesn’t trust the ghost, how is she supposed to love him? She knows he has some ulterior motive but she doesn’t know what yet.

When Mack warns her away from King and gives her a bracelet to hide with, she decides she can’t leave. She needs to save her family and bring back her brother. Mack worries about her but has to finish what he started and disappear.

King wants Mia to get to know him, so a night alone is planned. Once there King doesn’t act like himself. He turns evil and ties Mia up. She fears for her life. She doesn’t understand why he is doing this.

The next things she knows she is swimming naked in the ocean. She has no clue how she got there or exactly where there is. She ends up meeting King before he was cursed. Mia is shocked. How did she get there? She is determined to change history to save King. She can’t stand what he has become.

However things don’t go as she plans. She is forced to do what she swore she wouldn’t do. She travels forward in time and sees what is happening to King. She is shocked as the violence he now practices. She still has no idea what she is going to do in the end but her feelings for King has definitely changed as she understands how things happened. She has to make it back and find a way to save them both.

This is the last book in the King Trilogy. I have loved the journey. I loved how Mia and King met in the first book. It was a fascinating partnership that involved into a love-hate relationship. King is such a mysterious, twisted character and he drove Mia nuts. There was always sexual tension. In this third book you learn why. They were meant to be together explaining why and how they were brought together.

Mack also plays more of a role in the past than I thought giving it a cool twist. It brought everything full circle. The ending was awesome after making it through the bumpy parts.

I hated what King turned into by this third book. His evil side made an appearance with a vengeance. I did not like seeing him like that. I liked his character too much to see him lowered to that level. I’m glad the author flashed to the past when she did. It was an interesting story with time traveling and mysterious revealed. I am sad to see it end but it ended on sigh worthy note. I give it a 4 out of 5.
