Book Review Express Review Corner brings you
“Cheeky King, #2” in the Royals Undercover Series by Nana Malone. (review below)
What good is a King without his Queen?
I never wanted the crown, but now it’s mine.
Instead of my freedom–instead of her.
But even though she’s not mine to keep, I can’t seem to stay away.
The moment he became king, I knew we were over.
Now I’ve returned home some kind of conquering hero.
If only they all knew that we’d both lost our hearts.
If only I could stay out of the royal bed.
What good is being cocky if you can’t get what you want?
I absolutely loved this book which continues from where the first book left off. “You Knew”. I loved this story line and everything about it. The author has a wonderful knack for grabbing your attention, having you fall in love with their characters and pulling you through their story like you are a friend and belong with the characters. This book was no exception as we find Sebastian now the King Regent, waiting to take the crown after his father’s untimely and suspicious death, not that he wanted the crown, but it is his now and he must live up to his responsibilities. But where does that leave him and Penny (Len), now that they are back home in the palace and he is taking over his role as King and Penny is now back in her role as a Royal Guard. Things are iffy with these two at best, considering she is a commoner and he is of royal blood. They can’t be together, even if all they want is to be together. But things are amiss, someone killed the former King and it is up to Penny’s father to help find out what happened to his old friend and Sebastian’s father. There is excitement, intrigue, lust, love, heartbreak, sorrow and total joy all rolled into this fabulous story.
The characters are wonderfully written and extremely well defined. Sebastian is hot, charming and is now the king. Penny is sweet, caring, beautiful and is one of the king’s royal guards, but these two are in love and have been since they were both in New York living a free life, doing what the both love doing, until the news came that his father was dead. The King is dead, long live the King.
An amazing book and I highly recommend not only this one but you really have to read the first to know what’s going on in this one, so enjoy both of them back to back!!! Great reads!!!
USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.
With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.
The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.
Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.
