Raised to rule, bred to lead and weaned on a diet of ruthless ambition. In a world of haves and have nots, my family has it all, and I want nothing to do with it.
My path takes me far from home and paints me as the black sheep. At odds with my father, I’m determined to build my own empire. I have rules, but Lennix Hunter is the exception to every one of them. From the moment we meet, something sparks between us. But my family stole from hers and my father is the man she hates most. I lied to have her, and would do anything to keep her. Though she tries to hate me, too, the inexorable pull between us will not be denied.

"The harder I have to work for something, the harder I take it."
Yes, I read the synopsis, but I still had no clue what I was in for. The title makes perfect sense now that I understand what it means. I wish I could tell you...not really. That would be a disservice, it's the experience of the slowly unraveling story that feeds the hunger inside, right? The need to understand, to feel, to experience, to question, to hate, to fall. And nothing could feed my addiction better than my dealer, Kennedy Ryan.
Their parents are enemies. His father took what didn't belong to him and she can't forgive him. But, the son, she's drawn to him against her will. "It's laughable to think that he could camouflage his driven nature and be something that he's not." He doesn't agree with what his father did to her family. He's determined to blaze his own trail and make a name for himself that's not connected to the family business. He doesn't need any distractions and she's the biggest one of all.
They walk away from each other time and again but somehow keep ending up at the same place. She's still fighting against the attraction she feels for him. "—his spirit is still wild, howling on some frequency I shouldn't be tuned into, but I am." She refuses to let herself give in to what she truly wants, the ghosts from the past not allowing her to move forward.
Lordy, those two hard-headed, amazing characters gave me a mental workout. I'm exhausted from yearning so hard. I liked them too much to give up on the happily-ever-after I envisioned. Their chemistry is so intense that I can feel it through my Kindle. I don't know what the future has in store for these two, especially after what just happened. I can't wrap my head around it, and my jaw is still on the floor. I'm beyond anxious to get my grabby hands on The Rebel King. The line forms here...
