King Of Sloth By Ana Huang Book Review

King Of Sloth by Ana Huang book review

King Of Sloth left me feeling meh. I was excited for it. I love a good sexual tension lead-up through other books in a series, and this set-up promised goodies. But I just felt it lacked some drive and sex appeal. I’m not sure if I just read this after a vibrant Emily Henry binge, so it just seemed a bit beige in comparison.

King Of Sloth is the fourth book in Ana Huang’s Kings Of Sin series. This series has been tamer than her first four explosive books, the guys are less dangerous and crazy, which I’ve been okay with. However, I think this book could have done with more tension and danger.

King Of Sloth Plot

Charming, easygoing, and rich beyond belief, Xavier Castillo has the world at his fingertips.  He also has no interest in taking over his family’s empire (much to his father’s chagrin), but that hasn’t stopped women from throwing themselves at him…unless the woman in question is his publicist.  Nothing brings him more joy than riling her up, but when a tragedy forces them closer than ever, he must grapple with the uncertainty of his future—and the realization that the only person immune to his charms is the only one he truly wants.  

Cool, intelligent, and ambitious, Sloane Kensington is a high-powered publicist who’s used to dealing with difficult clients. However, none infuriate—or tempt—her more than a certain billionaire heir, with his stupid dimples and laid-back attitude. She may be forced to work with him, but she’ll never fall for him…no matter how fast he makes her heart beat or how thoughtful he is beneath his party persona. He’s her client, and that’s all he’ll ever be. Right?

King Of Sloth Book Review

Xavier is a nice guy. But I wanted more than just nice. Huang’s Twisted Hate was a masterclass in enemies to lovers with a twist of kink, while still being a nice guy, but this book fell way short. There was even a great opportunity because of Sloane’s control issues for her to actually enjoy losing control in the sack. But Xavier was just beige.

The actual formatting was really bad, which I’m not sure if it was just a Kindle thing or something else. Different people speaking would be in the same paragraph, sometimes even without the ‘he said, she said’, which made it confusing. I also found the side stories quite boring, and could have used some more editing to make them flow and be more interesting. Sometimes I think publishing houses are more interested in the publishing deadline and hype now than actually getting the story to the polished product.

There were some sexy moments. Like their first time having sex, although there could have been way more, or a notable blowjob with Huang’s signature dripping and gagging. But the rest of it felt meh. There wasn’t much sex in this book, and the story just wasn’t good enough to carry this. Think of the Broken Bonds series. Each book was really similar with plot, but there was so much good sex I really didn’t care.

King Of Sloth Rating


King Of Sloth was just a bit boring. There was potential, but it lacked sex appeal and a storyline that grabbed the reader. There were some fun bits, but overall, meh.
