King of Beasts: Beast Duet Book 1 by Diana A. Hicks is a wildly hot and intense mafia romance. Caterina is committed to keeping her family safe, no matter the cost. Although they are no longer supposed to be involved in the mafia, Caterina’s father has created a huge debt for himself. She goes to Rex, the king of the mafia, to make a deal, but what he wants from her isn’t what she was expecting. Although she says she hates him, there is most certainly chemistry between the two of them, and as Rex attempts to unite them together for the sake of the mafia, fate, in the form of Caterina’s family, seems to continually pull them apart.

This book was so dark and wicked! Diana A. Hicks set up a great storyline for Caterina and Rex, and I am very excited to pick up the sequel and find out how their story ends. I read this book in just a few sittings; I was hooked on the plot and characters. Written from the shifting points of view of the two main characters, Caterina and Rex, this book is fast-paced and action-packed. I could feel the passion between them, no matter how much Caterina claimed to hate Rex. King of Beasts was a quick and interesting read. I flew through the book faster than I usually do! It ends on a bit of a hanging note, but that is why I need to read the sequel as soon as possible. I loved this book and would absolutely recommend it.
