Book Review: King of Wrath by Ana Huang

King of Wrath was an incredible, intricate story that completely consumed me. Dante and Vivian were exceptional characters and had a heck of a ride to their HEA. If you have not read this author before, I highly recommend her.

Book Review: King of Wrath by Ana Huang
King of Wrath (King of Sins #1) by Ana Huang


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, jewelry 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 is book one in the Kings of Sin series but can be read as a standalone. It contains explicit content, profanity, and mild violence. Recommended for mature readers only.

5 out of 5 stars

King of Wrath was absolutely incredible! I loved the animosity, emotion, drama, and passion. All the intricate details and layers completely pulled me in. From the beginning, I was caught up in Vivian and Dante’s world and loved watching their walls come down as they opened up and became vulnerable. It consumed me. I had so many feelings and emotions and was rooting for them the entire time. 

Dante was an intense, complicated alpha jerk in the beginning and I loved learning his inner workings and motivations. Even though he seemed so ruthless, he fascinated me and I loved him immediately. Vivian was a strong, independent woman and I liked her instantly but I felt for her because of the familial obligations that held her back. The position her family was putting her in made for seriously great drama. The moments when Dante and Vivian clashed were awesome. I love how she gave as good as she got and stood up to Dante. Their back and forth was intense with off-the-charts chemistry and I couldn’t get enough of the building sexual tension. When everything finally exploded it was pretty epic. There were so many excellent scenes between these two, and I was captivated the entire time. I cheered for them, hurt for them, and cried for them.

I loved their friends and how unique they were. I love what's been set up for Isabella and Kai, I really liked their subtle interactions and I’m excited for more in the next book, King of Pride. Even the details about the people in the upper echelon of society, Dante’s staff, and brother had me invested. The drama with her parents was something else, providing a lot of angst, and it just about killed me. When Vivian gets her moments though, it was beyond fantastic.

This is my first time reading this author and I honestly feel blown away. The writing was incredible and the descriptions made me feel like I was a part of their world. Everything together made for an elaborate, well-executed story. This was a truly addicting read. New fan right here!
