Although the title is a trilogy, Mimi wrote an additional two more books to please her audience. I personally happy with her decision because I loved this series very much. It’s dark, full of twist and turns, and it made my head spinning with all the possibility. There are five books in total in this series, and I have listed down according to the reading order. I also wrote a short opinion on each book, and because I didn’t have time to write the synopsis of the books, I took the summary from Goodreads.

“I am the man who can find anything or anyone. For a price. And my price is you.”
When Mia Turner’s brother goes missing in Mexico, while on an archaeological dig, she believes that life couldn’t get much worse. But when she’s blocked at every turn from finding answers, by both local and U.S. authorities, she must turn to a man she swears is the devil.
Others might be fooled by his private jet, fine tailored suits, and disarming smile, but Mia knows something dark, sinister, and unnatural lurks behind those penetrating, pale-gray eyes. And the more she learns, the more she realizes she may never be free again.
I loved the mystery vibes in this story. Mia was a strong female character, and she’s not easily succumbed to her fate, not even to the person who owned her, a handsome, mysterious man named King. King was supposed to help her find Justin, her brother, and Mia kept on disobeying him whenever she thought she’s right. Currently, I’m in Mia’s shoes, dying to know if he’s even a human being, and what happened to him.
King isn’t who she thought. She wasn’t even close…
When Mia Turner’s life becomes tethered to a mysterious billionaire, who she swears is the devil himself, she knows she must break free. It doesn’t matter if everything about him—those sinful lips, those pale gray eyes, that perfect male body—keeps her awake at night. He’s evil. She has to get away.
But when this man, known simply as King, suddenly disappears, Mia will discover she’s not home free. Because without King, she’s no longer safe from his ruthless, depraved, power-hungry social circle. To survive, Mia will have to conceal King’s absence and walk a mile in the evil man’s twisted, cruel shoes. What she discovers will leave her more terrified and her heart more conflicted than she ever imagined.
King is not who she thought. She wasn’t even close.
Oh well, King wasn’t what I thought he was. I couldn’t predict the outcome, which made this original story captivating. Towards the end of the story, I felt like slapping Mia for her outburst, but I did understand why she reacted so strongly after the betrayal and the loss she faced. I’m so looking forward to the next book!
“You’re asking me to…love you?” asked Mia.
He slowly scratched his thick black stubble. “I suppose I am.”
What if you were asked to love a dangerous man who betrayed you at every turn, who terrified you even in your sleep? Could you do it to save the people you hold dear?
Mia Turner is ready to give it all—her body, her heart, her soul—to the mysterious, ruthless billionaire who holds the cards to saving her family. But when this sinfully sexy man, simply known as King, demands something more, something horrifying, Mia will be forced to face the impossible truth about their lives.
Sometimes the truth brings salvation. And sometimes the truth breaks you.
King of Me was my favourite book in this series. I loved that Mia travelled back in time to see King, although it was unintentionally, though it’s what I enjoyed the most about in the story. Now that we know the possibility of Justin coming back, I wish to read about the happy reunion. Maybe she did include it in the next two books? I’ll have to check it out ASAP.
“THEY THINK KING IS EVIL, BUT HE’S GOT NOTHING ON ME.” -Mack
MY NAME IS MACK. And if I play my cards right, I will soon be dead. Permanently. Not even my powerful twin brother will be able to resurrect me. A good thing. Because a man like me has no business living. Not when I have killed. Not when I have betrayed everyone I have ever cared for. Not when I know I’m destined to do it again.
This is why I have come looking for her–the only one capable of ending me once and for all. But will she think I’m just another insane patient? Or will she believe the truth? I am thousands of years old, my heart too dark to be salvaged. And my name isn’t really Mack.
MY NAME IS TEDDI, short for Theodora. My entire life has been a canvas of grays, whites, and black. I can’t feel, I can’t understand joy, I’ve never truly lived. Until now. His name is Mack, and though he believes he’s cursed, my degree in psychology tells me otherwise. Besides, someone who’s capable of bringing so much light into my life can’t be anything but good.
But I can save him. If he’ll let me.
Omg.. the ending 😧😧 but I have fate that everything will be ok, and we’ll have the positive happy ending in the final book 😙. Frankly speaking tho, it took me a while to get used to the new character named Teddi AKA Dr Valentine. However, in the end, she’s a sound character and a perfect match for Mack. I better go read the next book, the 10 Club, and find out the ending they both deserve 😘.
HE WANTS TO OWN HER. King doesn’t recall dying and he definitely doesn’t recall this feisty woman Mia who claims to be his wife. But he’s happy to make her his if she’ll be obedient and loyal. After all, a king needs a queen, and now that he’s back from the dead, this evil billionaire has big plans.
SHE WANTS HIM DEAD. Mia Turner made painful sacrifices to save the love of her life from his cursed hell. So when he promised to love and protect her always, she believed him. But after he trades his life to save his brother, she’s left all alone with a baby and a broken heart. Until he returns. Evil, more powerful, and with absolutely no memory of her.
Can she find a way to bring back the man he once was, or will she have to send him back to hell?
Phew, I’m glad that I managed to finish reading the whole series before getting into a new year 😁. The conclusion blew my mind off with the evil twist. It wasn’t what I usually find in normal fantasy books I read. I’m also happy that Teddi gets to experienced the back in time bits too! But frankly speaking, I was a little bit disappointed that she wasn’t in the future😅.
