Review: King of Wrath 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.

Was this book original? No. Was this book groundbreaking? No. But did I enjoy the hell out it? YES!!!!!!!

King of Wrath is a typical romance novel that follows the familiar pattern of billionaire arranged marriage books out there but what makes it stand out is it’s relatable characters. Since I hadn’t delved into Ana’s other writings, I approached King of Wrath with an open mind, devoid of any preconceived notions about her character archetypes. Therefore, I didn’t harbor any concerns about the potential similarity of the characters to those in her previous works, the other reviewers were complaining about.

Vivian, our main character, is a badass bitch who embodies resilience. As a Caucasian American woman married to an Asian American man myself, I could somewhat resonate with Vivian’s journey on a certain level. While her struggles may seem foreign to many Western readers, I personally connected with her profound reverence for familial ties and their societal significance, as I witness that on a daily basis with my husband and his family.

Despite Dante fitting the mold of your typical possessive alphahole who initially resists the idea of an arranged marriage with everything he got, there was an undeniable charm about him that captivated me. As flawed as he may have been, there was something about Dante that drew me in and made me root for his character. And we love a man who’s willing to get down on his knees and beg, am I right ladies? lol. Also his character development throughout the story was remarkable.

The gradual evolution of their relationship, rooted in their past experiences, was a highlight for me. Their journey wasn’t without its challenges; the dynamic of push and pull, the banter filled with sarcasm and wit, infused the narrative with a delightful levity while enhancing their chemistry. It made their connection feel authentic and earned, adding depth to the story.

Wrapping up the review, I loved this book!
