Sol is a wonderfully broken character that has let his faults define him. He is not bad, but he has made mistakes, most of which end up pretty darn funny. He has surrounded himself with a cast of characters you meet throughout and see that he has recognized who he is, and why he needs them all.
Rain is delightful. Really I can not think of another word to describe her. Unlike the cover art (I know the author has no choice in it but artists read the book please) Rain is full of curves, beauty, and a huge heart. She also shows a great deal of strength, but it is sometimes like a bubble wrapped aluminum bat that people see and do not take serious until it is smashing them.
The side characters range from outrageous to subtle, but you can see why everyone belongs in this wonderful setting in New Orleans.
The King of Bourbon Street is smart, sexy, funny, and most definitely erotica. This whirlwind romance ties sex and love together in a way that doesn't make you feel like it is a bargaining chip used in happily ever after. It is two people that come together and sparks turn into pink hearts floating where ever they walk.
I could offer more details, but really this story is best experienced through the author's voice, not my own.
But I decided to give it a second chance. It’s not as bad as I first thought it was. It’s actually enjoyable at some parts. I found the characters endearing; even the side characters like Cylan, Rain’s brothers—Vaughan and Richard, especially, Sol’s ex-wife Maddy, and Freckles the corgi.
Since apparently it’s an erotica, expect lots of sex. Like, really. Most of their time together is spent in a tangled mess of limbs and sheets. We have a man with a lot of sexual experience and a girl who’s pretty vanilla compared to him. There’s light, hot BDSM in the mix, so some of the readers might enjoy that.
Personally, I enjoyed the narrative and dialogue. I really liked the dry humor infused in the overall tone of the story. I also loved that the backdrop they used was New Orleans!
As I’ve mentioned above, this story has a lot of sex scenes. Not a bad thing since it’s erotica. But I felt the conflict and resolution were compromised because of the lack of time and space. Since most of the story revolved around their sexual encounters, there was little left for the conflict to unfold. I think it was resolved too easy.
Overall, The King of Bourbon Street is still a fun start to a series. This standalone told in the third POV has a lot of steam, humor, and sexual chemistry between the main characters. Not bad.
Thea de Salle, I love your writing!
