Dominic Davenport has lost his wife because he is always chasing the next big thing. Sometimes it’s connections, sometimes it’s a new deal, and other times it’s money. Coming from poverty, it was imperative for him to make a lot of money. But in that mad chase, he has forgotten the most important thing in his life, Alessandra Davenport, his wife, and the love of his life.
Alessandra has had enough. She is sick of waiting for her husband to find time for her. She has better things to do than being a trophy wife to Dominic. Being second priority to the man she loved was not what she wanted out of their marriage. So, she leaves him and their 10 years of marriage.
The plot is generic at best. It’s nothing that I haven’t read before. The thing that elevates this book for me is the internal monologue of the characters. I don’t feel much when they interact, but their internal monologue kept me interested in reading this book. The spice is average at best, not something I’ll swoon over. But it’s not bad, although I have read better smut with amazing sexual tension. So, this book doesn’t move me in any way. It still doesn’t beat King of Wrath but comes close to King of Pride.
The characters are very forgettable. I finished this book just 2 days ago and I have already forgotten their names. Dominic and Alessandra didn’t really work for me. Most of their interactions are average to me. I won’t say I hated their character, I just didn’t feel anything for them. I didn’t care if they ended up together by the end of the book, and that is not good for a romance book.
Overall, if you are a fan of the author or the series, you will like it. If you are not, then it can be a good book to pass the time if you don’t have any good romance to read, which is rarely the case. Otherwise, it’s an average read for me.
He had her, he lost her…and he’ll do anything to win her back.
Powerful, brilliant, and ambitious, Dominic Davenport clawed his way up from nothing to become the King of Wall Street.
He has everything—a beautiful home, a beautiful wife, and more money than he could spend in a lifetime. But no matter how much he accumulates, he’s never satisfied.
In his endless quest for more, he drives away the only person who saw him as enough.
It isn’t until she’s gone that he realizes there may be more to life than riches and glory…but by then, it may be too late.
Kind, intelligent, and thoughtful, Alessandra Davenport has played the role of trophy wife for years.
She stood by her husband while he built an empire, but now that they’ve reached the top, she realizes he’s no longer the man she fell for.
When it becomes clear that she’ll always come second to his work, she finally takes charge of her life and puts herself first—even if it means leaving the only man she’s ever loved.
But what she didn’t count on was his refusal to let her go…or for him to fight for their marriage, no matter what it takes.
King of Greed is a steamy marriage in trouble/second chance romance. It's book three in the Kings of Sin series but can be read as a standalone.
