If you want to know more on King of Greed spicy chapters, quotes, characters and my personal review, read along!
King of Greed is slightly different from most Ana Huang books we’ve seen because of the marriage in trouble romance trope that we don’t really see much of in romance books these days.
In fact, the book starts off with Dom and Ale being married for ten years and in the first few chapters, they get into a huge conflict which makes Ale decide it’s time to leave the marriage, which is very unlike most of Ana Huang’s twisted books.
What is King of Greed About?
King of Greed is a rags to riches story that follows Dominic Davenport, a nobody who became a billionaire through years of education and hardwork.
By his side stands, Alessandra, the girl who saw potential in him during their university days. Together, they have been married for ten years.
However, their relationship is no longer what it used to be, Alessandra is tired of being a trophy wife that barely gets the time to speak, yet alone spend time with her workaholic husband.
Unfortunately, when Dom misses their 10-year-anniversary, Ale reaches a breaking point and decides to leave him.
King of Greed: My Honest Review
Note: Spoilers can be found in this section. Please skip if you haven’t read the book already.
King of Greed is not your typical spicy morally-grey Ana Huang romance. Don’t get me wrong, readers still get all the juicy steamy scenes they’d want in an Ana Huang book but this book had a lot more to it.
This is probably because the King of Greed couple is unlike any other couple we’ve read before. The main characters are married for a decade and the book jumps straight into the conflict, allowing readers to peer into Alessandra’s loneliness because of Dominic’s absence in her life.
This marriage-in-trouble book did hurt to read. It’s sad to see how sour a relationship can become when people choose to prioritize money over the love of their life.
The flashbacks each of them had to the time where they were young and in love university students was quite painful to read. In terms of making me feel the pain of the characters, the author did great.
To be honest, the beginning of the book kept me engaged because I really wanted to know how was Dominic planning to win Alessandra back. I like that Alessandra didn’t give in too easily (because I think anyone would have ran back to Dominic after all the grovelling he did, oh and of course the fact that he is a hot billionaire).
But half-way through I lost interest as it was pretty repetitive. Alessandra kept running and Dominic kept running after her. I got tired of the chase and just wanted her to accept him already.
Fortunately, there was a subplot on Dominic’s past life (before he was rich) and that mystery kept me reading.
Overall, it was a 3.5 stars for me. It was an emotional read and I like how raw the main characters were. I did feel like if the middle part of the book was more eventful and less repetitive, I would have been more emotionally invested.
