edit is mine, pic are not🖤

Title: Titan
Author: Shantel Tessier
Genre: Dark Romance
Type: Book 1 in the Dark Kings series
Release Date: May 29, 2020
POV: dual


I know I have a black soul. Bloodshed and danger are what I live for.
A King is supposed to rule his Kingdom using any means necessary to demand respect.
I’m not a weak man… A King kneels to no one.
I’ve only ever cared about one other person in my life, but the thing is, she never belonged to me. And before I could tell her how I felt, she left.
Now she’s returned, needing someone to save her.
Emilee York was always meant to be mine, and I’ll see to it that happens. I always get what I want, even if that means I have to take it.
And she’s no different. She’ll be my queen, one way or the other.

When I left Sin City behind me, I had no plans to return. I avoided everyone, even my friends, to stay in my bubble. I’ve always been the kind to pull away and run when things get difficult.
But one phone call changed everything, and I was racing back. If only I had known what was waiting for me.
Titan reappeared like a ghost haunting me.
One look and I knew he recognized me. I never forgot him or what we shared. Those feelings that no one else knew existed between us.
I ignored them back then, but now they are more intense than ever.
“Get on your knees…” He demanded I kneel for him.
I tried to act like he didn’t affect me, but he knew. He remembered the way I reacted when he would touch me. And just like he was taught to do—he used my weaknesses against me.
He staked his claim, and I became his queen to use how he saw fit.
What makes it worse is that I crave him, and when I kneeled, it was willingly.
But was it for nothing?

First, this was my first time reading Shantel Tessier and holy shit was it good!! This book will have your heart pounding, head spinning and your whole body on fire! If you haven’t picked this up yet, what are you even doing with your life? Titan is sort of a spin-off of Code of Silence, which I didn’t know at the time of signing up for this ARC. I will definitely be reading Code of Silence so I can get more of a glimpse at the dark kings backstory, though.

Men like us don’t fall in love. Not every King needs a Queen.

So, we’ve got a dual POV here of Titan and Emilee. Titan is every bit of a powerful, bad boy, panty melting alpha that you could ask for. Emilee is a fiesty, strong and takes no shit from anyone. Titan and Emilee’s chemistry was off the charts. Their chemistry together will have your Kindle on fire! Holy hotness 🥵🔥

She can try to hide all she wants, but I’ll find her. No matter where she goes. A king always finds his queen.

Oh my goodness, this book had all of the elements that I love in a book. It literally had me hooked from the very beginning. The drama, suspense, characters (even the side characters were amazing) and the raw sexual tension were all there! This story had me so intrigued and turning the pages so fast trying to find out what could possibly happen next. This was one book that I had no idea where it was going and I really enjoyed the surprises that were weaved throughout.

I miss that woman more than I’ll ever admit. A king never shows his weakness, Not even to his queen.

I will without a doubt be 1-clicking on the rest of these dark kings books because I can’t get enough of the kings and the queens who bring them to their knees!
