Mason Campbell is bored with life. He has everything he's ever wanted—money, power, and any woman at the snap of his fingers. After working his way out of the gutter, he is now king. People fear him. And he’s bored. Until he looks across the dance floor at one of his nightclubs to see a stunning woman dressed in red. He has to have her.

Holly Allan is finally free from a loveless marriage to a cheating jerk. Nine years she devoted her life to a man who didn’t know how to be faithful. When Mason enters her life, she’s not looking for anything long term. She’s not ready to trust men. Mason is not taking no for an answer.

He sees the passion in her eyes, the yearning. Her husband didn’t know the treasure he had, but Mason does. One taste was never going to be enough and he’s not letting Holly get away. He’s going to keep her. He knows what it's like to go without, to beg, to crave. What he cannot do is allow his life to touch Holly’s. He’s a bad man, a monster, and he has made a lot of enemies. But what will he do when her ex-husband is determined to tell her the truth about who Mason really is?

Be Warned: anal sex, sex toys


“You snuck out of my apartment this morning, why?”

She shrugged. “I didn’t know what to do. I’m an early riser and I’ve never done the morning-after-the-whole-night-before thing. I didn’t know what to do.” She blew out a breath. “Is this what this is about? I didn’t take anything and we said it was only going to be a one-time thing.”

“I fucked you four times last night. You had multiple orgasms. This has already been more than a one-time thing,” he said.

“I didn’t steal anything,” she said. “I just grabbed my stuff and left. You’ve totally ruined my shirt. I’ve already tried to attach the buttons and there are tiny holes.” She sighed.

He followed her through to her kitchen and he saw the oven was open, and there was a light smell of chemicals in the air.

“You’re cleaning your kitchen?” he asked.


“Don’t you hire people to do that?”

“Not everything needs to be done by other people. Besides, I happen to like cleaning.” She shrugged. “I don’t know why I love to clean but I do. Do you want a drink? I have tea and coffee. That’s pretty much it. Or water. I don’t drink soda. Or I’ve got milk. Unless you want something stronger.”

He watched her as she pushed a strand of hair off her forehead.

“I don’t need anything stronger. Is there any other reason you left this morning?” he asked.

“No. I didn’t want to do this part as I thought it would be too awkward, and you’re kind of proving me right. This is a whole lot of awkward right now.” She pressed her lips together. “I’ve never done this. I’ve never experienced anything like this and I feel like I’m constantly saying the same thing.”

“I understand what you’re saying.”

“Great, so why are you here?” Holly asked. “I thought men don’t want women who cling, and yet you’re here.”

“I don’t like it when women sneak out of my apartment after I fuck them hard and well.” He closed the distance between them and he was a little surprised she didn’t back away from him.

“Then put it down as a brand-new experience,” she said. “I’m pretty sure there have been plenty of women who haven’t wanted the morning-after weirdness.”

He smiled. “No, not a single one, but then I guess that has something to do with the fact I don’t let them stay, and none of them are allowed in my apartment. Whenever I fuck them, we go to a hotel. Never to my place.”

“Are you trying to say that I’m special?” she asked.

He loved her snarky attitude. He loved the fact she wasn’t frightened of him. She doesn’t know who you are, or what you’re capable of. If she did, she’d have run across the country by now.

Gripping the back of her neck, he pulled her close and slammed his lips down on hers. He avoided answering the question because as of right now, she was fucking special. She had taken away his boredom and in return given him something to look forward to. No woman had ever done that. From the moment she started dancing in his nightclub, he’d been hooked.

Mason traced across her bottom lip and as he heard her gasp, he couldn’t help but smile. He loved how responsive she was. Moving her backward, he pressed her up against the kitchen counter. He let go of her neck to capture her wrists, pinning them either side of her. He was a lot taller than her. Looking at her now, he felt that craving again, the hunger to take her.

Thrusting his pelvis against her, he watched her eyes, seeing her response. They widened, just slightly, but enough for him to see that his body affected her. He was so hard it would be impossible for her to not feel his arousal.

“Do you not want me to take you, Holly? Do you want me to leave?”

She whimpered and he pressed his lips against her neck, sliding his tongue back and forth across the pulse, and then nipping the delicate flesh with his teeth. Another whimper escaped her.

He let go of her arms, she was perfectly capable of pushing him away, of rejecting him. She didn’t do either. Her hands stayed at her side and he reached for the edge of her old shirt. In one swift swoop, he peeled it over her head.

Underneath she wore a delicate lacy bra, peach this time, and it seemed to highlight the dark red of her nipples. His mouth watered for a taste of her delicate flesh. He craved her so fucking much, wanted her badly.

But the anticipation was all part of the play. There was no fun in scoffing the dessert when you could take it spoonful by spoonful. He didn’t want to stuff himself. No, he wanted to take his time with Holly, and as he did, he was going to enjoy it.

King's Trophy by Sam Crescent OMG! I absolutely loved this standalone read. It was scorching hot in all the right ways! Holly Allen is recently divorced from her cheating ex and ready to move on with her life. Mason Campbell, known and feared by many as the king of the city takes one look at Holly and he has to have her, but he wants his life of danger to not touch her in any way. He knows his little librarian Holly is his everything, he wants a lifetime with her and he does not want to lose her but her interfering ex has other ideas. Their chemistry is scorching, so hot and sexy. Mason is definitely a new book boyfriend favourite. I really fell in love with his character. Sam yet again has delivered a wonderful read that I for one did not want to end. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of their story and hope that you will too. Happy Reading! Please note that I was given an arc of this book for my honest review which is exactly what I have given. 5 out of 5

Sam Crescent has a unique way of writing, and she makes not-quite-likeable characters capture your heart. Her stories always have something that hooks you. Holly and Mason's story is no exception, it hooks you from start to finish, with an alpha OTT that falls hard and fast!

Mason and Holly
Written by weaveswife on 4th Jul 2023

This was so good! Mason was awesome. He was king of the city. He had clawed his way to the top. He liked being king, but he was bored with life. He was tired of the women who threw themselves at him. He didn't know what was missing until he saw Holly in his club. He wanted her from the second he laid eyes on her. Getting to know her he realized she was refreshing. Holly was awesome too. She divorced her crappy ex and moved on with her life. She took Mason as he was. He was refreshing to her too. He actually saw her, cared about her and loved her. What they had was special. The ending was perfect too. Loved their whole story.

Written by Lucy m on 4th Jul 2023

I liked this story, well written, and it didn't take long to read. Holly was a great character that knew what she wanted and I like that Mason knew he wanted her when he first saw her.

Sam Crescent does an awesome job telling this awesome love story. Put on your TBR list today or just buy it and read it now!!???

Sweetest love
Written by Timma on 4th Jul 2023

This book is definitely a departure from the Sam Crescent books I have read. It’s a sweet sweet sensual departure that I love! I want to see more books like this from her. Mason was a typical bad guy that went and fell in love with the good girl in such of short time of meeting her. The drama was low key but added to the story. Holly and Mason’s love story was told with such steaminess. I don't want to give away the story line but it’s delicious and worth the read.

Loved this book
Written by Brooke T on 4th Jul 2023

I love the writing style of Sam Crescent. She brings such amazing stories to life. This book did not disappoint in her story telling. The characters were complex and had such scorching hot chemistry. The world she created was exciting, and enticing. This is a dark romance and it was a page turning adventure of heat and action. Mason was the King of his city and got what he wanted. He was an over the top possessive alpha. I loved his instant infatuation with Holly. Holly was discovering life and just wanting to live. She was finding her strength and loved watching her strength grow. It was like they were meant to be. I loved their loyalty and devotion to each other.

King&#039;s Trophy.
Written by Shiftybugger on 4th Jul 2023

I received a free copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review. OMG! Wow, I am absolutely breathless, hot, and in love with the two main characters she has gone through so much and all he wants to do is nurture her. The first time Mason sees her he needs her, he is a a King to the people in town a monster at best. Can Holly love again after her cheating ex-husband, she doesn't go out with men any more. This was an exhilarating book, it is so worth reading.

Written by Shortbec on 4th Jul 2023

Holly and Mason's story is amazing. Holly was married for nine years and on this particular night she walked by a clothing store and saw this red dress. Impulsively she purchased the dress and took herself dancing. Little did she know that she captured the eyes of one particular man. Mason was bored with life until he was at one of his clubs and comes in a goddess wearing a red dress. She goes to the dance floor and all he sees is her, before he gets to her she disappears. When he finds her he knows he wants to keep her.

Written by vickymeowmeow on 4th Jul 2023

Very enjoyable story, moves well, no drag or filler. Doesn't get heavy or dark. Romance builds quickly there are self doubts as both realize they are falling for the other. Great sex! Hot, well described, many scenes and positions. There's a heartwarming hea, a little tension, and very little danger. I really enjoyed this couple.

Kings love
Written by Redfaeryrose on 4th Jul 2023

I loved the author's works. Her MMC might be a bit on the dark side but would do everything to protect the women they love. The FMC in this story is no damsel in distress. She knows her own mind and does what she wants to do. The MMC might be a bit stalker-ish at the start but it just shows that he did really want her. His small gestures of love, thinking of her always and caring for her, giving her a choice and not controlling her life, all those things and many more made him endearing as the hero of the story.

Mason &amp; Holly
Written by Annette J. on 4th Jul 2023

This story King's Trophy by Sam Crescent is all about romance. Mason is 45 years young and bored. He owns the city, has many businesses and lots of people are afraid of him.

She is in a beautiful red dress that fits her like a glove and has all the attention of Mason and the other men in the club. She is dancing by herself, her eyes closed for her own enjoyment. She has only been divorced for a few months, her ex never took her out dancing and she always wanted to go. He was an unfaithful man throughout their marriage. After dancing she disappears and Mason tries to find out who she is, but no one seems to know. With help from one of Mason's men information is found out about her. Holly is divorced and 30 years of age. He knows where she lives and works. Mason goes to the library to introduce himself to Holly. He doesn't tell her what line of work he is in. Mason only asks her out to dinner. She is hesitant about accepting, because she doesn't know him. They go to dinner and Mason's plan is to make Holly his. Things start to get HOT as they get to know each other. This is a steamy romance and I loved it.

Great romance!
Written by LBing on 4th Jul 2023

This was such a great romantic story that brings us into the lives of Holly, divorcee, and Mason, MC pres...and bored alpha. On a whim, Holly bought a beautiful red dress, went to a bar and danced for herself. Mason, owner of said bar, could not take his eyes off of her ;) He worked at tracking her down and set about wooing her. He did put some of his men around her life to keep her safe from his enemies, but that was all part of his wooing. This definitely is an MC light story. Instead, this author took us on a wonderful journey that led to Mason and Holly's HEA. Well done!

Mason saw her dancing by herself on the dance floor. She was wearing a red dress, and she was stunning. He found who she was, a librarian. Mason went to her place of work, asked her out on a date. They had an instant connection on their first date. Holly's ex-husband continues to intrude in her life. Mason offers her protection, and support. The story flowed well. The characters were likeable. There is a hea!

Lady in Red
Written by Laura S. on 4th Jul 2023

A fun fantasy to fall asleep with! Holly just divorced her belittling, cheating husband of 9 years, and decides to do the things that she always wanted to do. Who knew what a red dress and a dance in a downtown club would lead to! I thought this was a fun take on a Cinderella story, where the prince isn't quite prince charming, and Cinderella takes a chance with finding her own happiness. Maybe dreams really come true!

Written by Andrea R on 9th Jun 2023

I am a huge fan of this book-this one delivered on all levels--you have suspense, vindictive ex who is just a child who doesn't like it when his toy that he threw away is picked up and adored by another. Love how this story unfolds so much. Author is able to give you everything in her stories AND she definitely delivers on the steaminess because they were FIRE!!

King&#039;s Trophy
Written by Karen99 on 9th Jun 2023

She Would Be His! He spotted her, liked what he saw, wanted her and was determined to claim her, but he didn’t want her to know about his work or who he was, he wanted to protect her from that part of his life! Such an intense, passionate, erotic read! Mason was known as King of the City, he’d had lots of hook ups but never a relationship and with Holly, he wanted it all! Holly was single again, a librarian who had put up with a cheating husband for years and who wasn’t looking for anyone new until Mason literally stormed into her life! The pages could burn with the steam coming off them! A sexy, spicy, recommended romantic read!

Love it
Written by RhondaVB on 9th Jun 2023

This is one of my favorite stories from Sam Cresent. I loved that the characters were older and more mature. Holly has gotten rid of her cheating ex and when she decides to go dancing in a gorgeous red dress she bought, she catches the eye of Mason. He is immediately attracted to her and uses his sources to find out who she is. From there on, it's a whirlwind romance and I loved every minute of it! Sam Crescent knows how to capture her readers attention and keep it!

King finds his Queen
Written by Bookbunny on 9th Jun 2023

Holly Allan is finally letting go. Her marriage of 10yrs was over and she is finally going to live a little. She certainly didn’t expect to be noticed in a club. Mason Campbell was a man of power. When he spots a sexy red dress and a goddess dancing, he needs to know who she is. Holly is just a librarian moving forward in life. She has a wild side and Mason is the one that unlocks it. Her ex-husband William is a piece of work. I love that Holly was a woman that knew her own mind and body. Yes she may have worked in a library but she was no fool. Mason was the one with the shock. He never expected to find the love of his life. And he was protective of her. I do love stories like this. Regardless of his “job” Mason always kept Holly safe. And Holly found a man that was worthy of her.

Good read
Written by Sua on 9th Jun 2023

Mason was mesmerized by the beauty of Holly when she had a night out at his club. To see his determination to woo her and do things he doesn’t really do surprises him. Holly has been in a dead end marriage with a husband who cheats on her so when she’s finally free of him, she focuses on her happiness. The relationship between Mason and Holly is fast pace, especially when Mason is obsessed with her. Their ending is also perfect as it jumps a few years to see how things are for them.

One great of the story
Written by Nasra on 9th Jun 2023

It was beautiful and alluring. The chemistry was very great and I like that it was short but understood. There is no playing hard to get no cheatingno dramas. I like the protectness of the male lead. And i liked that fl was not naive She knew about his identity from her own search and was okay with it. Then again the book said he was the bad guy but there is no place he play being that horrible mostorous of a person. Good job.

...going for what you want...
Written by Anya Z. on 9th Jun 2023

King's Trophy by Sam Crescent is a different approach to romance then what we normally have seen from Sam. Of course we have the powerful, older Mason. He is the "king" of the unnamed city he lives in...some elements of violent mafia & some elements of a smart, wealthy business owner... The story is not a really a mafia romance. Holly - is the divorced, 30 yr old librarian - that is finally living life on her own terms. She had a cheating ex she is rid of. She knows what she wants. One Friday Night after work, she walks past a beautiful red dress displayed in a store and decides she wants it. She buys it for herself, wearing it - walking out of the store. She immediately knows she wants to go dancing in it. She goes to a nightclub that Mason owns. Holly is dancing for her own enjoyment on the dance floor and Mason is captivated by her. She leaves before Mason knows her name. Thru his illegal contacts & searches, he finds out her name and basically her life info. Mason introduces himself at her work and it is whirlwind after that!! Sam doesn’t disappoint in her sïzzïngly sëx scënës between Mason & Holly... ??? Mason shows Holly what type of amazing sëx she was missing out on with her crappy ex, he supports her & her job, he loves her. Holly shows Mason love and acceptance. They balance each other. ??? I received an ARC thru Booksprout for my honest review.

Written by Gkp2460 on 9th Jun 2023

Mason Campbell and Holly Allan is just about as opposite as you can get. He's the King if the city, powerful, possessive and loyal. She's the librarian with a but of a wild streak who's just out of a marriage that shouldn't have lasted as long as it did. Their meeting is unexpected as is the chemistry felt between them. But Mason knows from the start that she'll be his Trophy, the Jewel in this Kings crown. They have their little bumps but it'll take a lot more than that to come between these two. Not even that despicable ex of Hollys.

Written by Alexis H on 9th Jun 2023

This will be my go-to summer read. Mason and Holly melted my heart. Two broken people finding love and happiness. And hot romance! This book is 100% a good steamy read.

Love and Loyalty
Written by Susan_C on 9th Jun 2023

Mason is the king of the city who is board with life until he sees Holly at his club. Holly is a librarian recently out of a long term marriage just looking to finally live. This was a slight age gap romance. Mason just wanted to feel loved. He was so sweet with Holly. Holly just wanted honesty and loyalty and I felt like Mason was able to give her that.

Written by Jilllovesbooks on 9th Jun 2023

Sam has done it again!!! Love when she writes a good angst romance. Absolutely fell in love with Holly's independence and of course that drove Mason crazy. The chemistry between these two was hot so hot!!! Mason was the macho man that came into Holly's life at the right time. Great read!!!!

This story was a blast! Love Mason Campbell this man knows how to get what he wants and doesn’t hesitate to get it. It doesn’t have so much as action in it but it definitely carries a good romance and all the other feelings.

Sam Crescent did it again

Sam Crescent brought us once more a great romance. Powerful alpha male, strong female character, lot of spiciness. What not to love? I read it in one sitting. Highly recommended.

Mason and Holly
Written by Michelle E on 9th Jun 2023

Holly is a librarian and ended her 10 year marriage to a cheating husband. She meets Mason at a club and he is immediately smitten by her. I like that Holly is not a pushover and knows her mind. Mason was jealous, protective and gone for her. He was not expecting to settle down. William her ex-husband created drama, and Holly has to decide what to do when she finds out the truth about Mason. Overall great chemistry, and steamy scenes.

Holly is finaly free of her cheating ex husband, and isn't looking for anything serious. Mason knows what it's like to go without but now he has it all, except for Holly. They are drawn to one another and sizzle with chemestry, Masons in it for the long run but can he prove that to Holly before her Ex tells her his truth? Well written steamy fast paced desires, romances
