Publisher's Summary

Meet the Kings of Sin . . .
The must-listen billionaire romance from the bestselling author of the Twisted series.
Listen to King of Wrath now for a steamy arranged marriage romance.

She's the wife he never wanted . . . and the weakness he never saw coming.

Ruthless. Meticulous. Arrogant. Dante Russo thrives on control, both personally and professionally.

The billionaire CEO never planned to marry - until the threat of blackmail forces him into an engagement with a woman he barely knows: Vivian Lau, jewellery heiress and daughter of his newest enemy.

It doesn't matter how beautiful or charming she is. He'll do everything in his power to destroy the evidence and their betrothal.

There's only one problem: now that he has her . . . he can't bring himself to let her go.

***

Elegant. Ambitious. Well-mannered. Vivian Lau is the perfect daughter and her family's ticket into the highest echelons of high society.

Marrying a blue-blooded Russo means opening doors that would otherwise remain closed to her new-money family.

While the rude, elusive Dante isn't her idea of a dream partner, she agrees to their arranged marriage out of duty.

Craving his touch was never part of the plan.

Neither was the worst thing she could possibly do: fall in love with her future husband.

King of Wrath is a steamy arranged marriage billionaire romance. It includes explicit content and profanity. Recommended for mature listeners only.

Bland fmc, cliché mmc

You know that quote, "if she was a spice, she'd be flour"? Yep, that's Vivian. Absolutely blaaaand.


Vivian (28) is set up as someone who supposedly doesn't like rich, upper-class society. She has her own (seemingly successful) career, and seemingly doesn't like her elitist parents, but agrees to marry Dante for no reason other than "but family".


What family though? Does she mean the parents she whinges about? Or the non-existent sister (starting this review about 3 hrs into the story so maybe she shows up at some point) who lives in another country? I suppose there might be cultural pressures but if there are, they aren't described.


I think the fundamental problem is that Vivian is made out to be a strong, empowered woman, but she'll do things like agree to an arranged marriage without complaint (but not for money apparently), will move into the mmc's apartment with zero complaint (she's even confused about not having to share a room with him - a guy she barely knows), and will stand up to the mmc by buying $10,000 worth of flowers in one day on his dime to show how mad she is (yes, that actually happens).  At least Dante has the excuse of being blackmailed. Vivian is just a doormat.


Don't know too much about Dante at this point (will update if/when I listen to more of this audibook). So far, Dante (36) is a walking wattpad trope who speaks in cliches.


I had such high hopes for this book based on the reviews and have never been more disappointed ):

Force proximity, enemies to lovers, family bribe

I loved this book so much I listened here, then bought it in paperback. MMC, Dante, is a hot, brooding billionaire who ends up in a forced marriage with FMC, Vivian. Vivian is Chinese so the book touches on Chinese cultural factors in a way that may resonate with Asian readers/listeners. Narration was impeccable and the spice was indeed spicing 🌶🥵

Love the narrator voice

This hands down one of the best audio book I have listen to. All the characters having a different voice make the book less boring. And OMG JACOB freaking MORGAN did not disappoint at all with the accent for Dante but KAI holy molly, his English accent was everything!! I got so excited whenever Kai appears because those English accent is amazing! We need him back narrating Kai in king of pride. Coz those accent is GOD!!!

I LOVE this book! Best book I've read in a long time.

I'm only half way in and I can't get enough. Love love love this book!
I was hooked from the first few chapters😍😍😍 very unpredictable storyline, anticipating the following chapters... Just absolutely great!

Vivian's voice is very irritating to me though. She sounds like an AI reader/ performer. But that's the only negative.

Exceeded my expectations

King of wrath is one of my favorite reads by one of my favorite authors and the audio was just as interesting. Five stars were not even enough to rate this story as it exceeded my expectations. Ana Huang really knocked this one out of the park. I love this story so much. The cover of the book was also just everything for me, I really loved the illustrations on the front and back. Although it was a slow burn I really enjoyed the way the story played out. I enjoyed Dante and Vivian’s relationship and how it slowly progressed from dislike to falling for each other. Dante getting all alpha and protective for her before they were even married was a sight to see.

The Arranged marriage trope is one of my favorite tropes so for me this was even more enjoyable. I just couldn’t stop listening, each chapter just got better and better. I liked how some of the supporting characters were brought into the book as well as showing us a glimpse into what their stories would be like, it left me feeling excited to read their books. Vivian for me was just a lovable character , I liked how she wasn’t afraid to speak her mind to Dante. Dante gave the touch her and you die vibes , who doesn’t love that. And the groveling ohh my!!!!!! Please check the TW’s before you start.

Super book and Super Performance

Truly a great book. The plot, the character development, the romance with just the right amount of everything to keep you hooked. The performance was impeccable as well! I would suggest this audiobook to anyone who would like a story where the male character has a big shift in attitude and goes from a grump with the sole purpose in life is to get vengeance to a heartfelt groveling man who fell for the last person he should have fell for.

Do not waste your time

The one good thing about it was Jacob’s performance. It was impeccable. The rest... was stupid, boring and extremely snobbish. I can’t believe it has such a high score and that I wasted one credit on this. I kept listening in hopes that something will happen, anything, but nop boring till the end. And that title... nothing to do with the story.

Dante's character development

I love the reading experience more but putting the voices to the words added to the experience. I like the back and forth narration, I've noticed not a lot of audiobooks I've come across have that.

Slow burn Billionaire Romance with some spice

I had heard great things about this book but I was frankly, disappointed. While I don't mind slow burn romances this seemed to go on too long, in fact the last six chapters of the book were surplus. The two main characters are forced into an arranged marriage and then forced proximity. This is normally a trope I enjoy but the plot let it down, both reasons for going through with the marriage were weak. Also for a morally grey lead, it just didn't quite work, he definitely didnt have the fire of a true Italian business man. Would I recommend the book, well no not really. There are more captivating books available. The secondary characters were pretty unlikeable and didn't contribute anything. The plus side is the narrators worked well together.

Honestly such a great book! I couldn’t put it down. Perfect story line, great amount of spice and character building. And let’s not lie, we all want a Dante Russo!! Perfect read if you like Enemies to Lovers AND Grumpy x Sunshine tropes!

Accents and emotions

Oh my god. I read and listened at the same time. It was the best time with a book. The accents and emotions in their voices. Voice actors did a really good job. I kinda want to listen to another book with them!
