When Mia Turner's brother goes missing in Mexico while on an archaeological dig, she believes that life couldn't get much worse. But when she's blocked at every turn from finding answers by both local and US authorities, she must turn to a man she swears is the devil.
Others might be fooled by his private jet, fine tailored suits, and disarming smile, but Mia knows something dark, sinister, and unnatural lurks behind those penetrating, pale-gray eyes. And the more she learns, the more she realizes she may never be free again.
Contains mature themes.

"WOW.... IT'S EVERYTHING YOU'RE NOT EXPECTING"
Right from the start this book draws you in and the more drawn in you get the more mysterious, thrilling and unpredictable both the plot and Mia and King's dynamics become. King is ruthless, arrogant, a bad-ass and has a 'doesn't give a shit' attitude but somehow you can't help but be mesmerised by him. Mia is strong, caring and will go to any lengths to save her brother..... but she doesn't realise just what a frightening and nightmarish turn her life is going to take the more she is sucked into King's world
I won't even try to describe the plot except to say that nothing is as it seems and there's so many twists and turns you'll end up dazed. Don't expect romance because there isn't any but Mia somehow feels drawn to King and he puts his possessive mark on her however I don't think there will be any romance until maybe book 3. No, at the moment there's only been a few hot touches and body-to-body sizzles but nothing more.
It's told from Mia's POV by a very good Narrator who gives each characters a voice of their own and she manages to do male voices with ease. The deeper the plot pulls you in the more sinister and paranormal the story becomes and that's thrilling, chilling and very entertaining because, at the end of the book, you're left with more questions than answers. And the very very best thing is that you don't have to wait months to find out what unexpected twist Mimi Pamfiloff will throw in next because the whole Trilogy is available now..... and guess where I'm headed to next? Yup book 2.
Worth a credit? Expect the unexpected, have an open mind, don't look for an earth shattering romance or tender words yet and be prepared for a paranormal turn to the Trilogy. This book is the slow click click click as the roller coaster gently climbs to it's pinnacle and you're left hovering at the top desperately holding on with your pulse pounding waiting for the scary, thrilling and emotional ride that'll plunge you into the depths of the unknown. And, if you like the sound of all that, then you too will find this a creditworthy listen as I did.
King is an enigma. This is the kind of book you pick up and can't put down! The narrator was fantastic! It was easy to be drawn in to Kings world. The mystery and intrigue are spot on! It's a great read!
"Unique, intriguing leaves you wanting more!!"
The story unfolds from Mia's point of view. She spends the entirety of the book trying to figure out why she is drawn to King (is he a hero or a devil) and trying to decipher why she is drawn to him despite the darkness inside of him.
This narration is good. No irritating voices as Ms. Wick assumes her different roles.
I enjoy a good story .... and this story exhibits great writing, imagination and of course a budding romance between Mia and King.
This was credit worthy in my opinion ... but if you are looking for intimate sex scenes, obvious romance and a happily ever after you may have to wait for book three in this trilogy. Do not despair all three books are out on audio.
I highly recommend this book.
"King's The Boss"
Mia Turner goes to Mexico in search of her brother who’s gone missing while on an archaeological dig, she’s barely closed the door to her hotel room, when a knock at the door produces two strange men who tell her in no uncertain terms to leave Mexico immediately or die and don’t even think about coming back. How rude!
As a last resort, she implores King to help her find out what happened to her brother and King is all too willing to help… for a price. Yep, the title says it all, King wants to own Mia Turner, lock stock and barrel. King is callous and uncaring as he effectively cuts Mia off from everything, demanding that she quit her job and just wait in his office, soon she out of money, her apartment and adding insult to injury, she is still brotherless. When Mia is just about to break under the pressure, King finally summons her to Mexico, umm… maybe Mia left out some important details about her previous visit to Mexico and maybe King will find he has a heart and that Mia’s not the only one getting owned.
I enjoyed this story so much, but I have to warn you this is a trilogy, so expected the dread cliffhanger and while some serious sparks fly between King and Mia there is no consummation of their relationship in this book. I found the story so engaging I didn’t miss it.
This was the first audiobook that I’ve listened to by the narrator, Helen Wick and I thought she did a wonderful job, the character voices were well defined and I had no problem discerning which person was speaking. The sound quality was excellent as well.
"Enjoyable story, decent performance"
I enjoyed the story in audio form. This performance was decent, especially the voices and accents, but the majority of the story sounded very breathy and unfortunately they did very little sound correction to the voice as it had a metallic undertone which got distracting. However, I do give credit to the narrator for making the story otherwise enjoyable.
Great story line and narrating, leading up to what though...would've been more excited about a better closure or ending ...is this more like a "to be continued"?
"Loved this book!"
Mia is a little annoying, but if you can get passed that, the book it worth it!!!!
