Would Be King by Kim Karr


Title: Would Be King
Author: Kim Karr
Genre: Standalone Royal Romance
Release Date: February 27, 2019
A dare turns into so much more…
All I want to do is
get to work on time.
But a Prince Harry look-a-like is trying to steal my cab,
And I’ll fight for it to the bitter end.
In the midst of our
verbal battle,
I discover I lost my wallet.
So I bargain—a free ride for a kiss.
What starts out as
innocent quickly steams up the windows.
His lips are soft, and when he tugs me closer,
I press my entire body against his hard muscles, and practically strip him from
his expensive suit.
This is the best taxi ride of my life.
Until it ends just as quickly as it began.
Embarrassed over my behavior, I rush out without so much as a goodbye.
But fate, that
Has us pounding on the same locked door.
Already knowing I’m going to be fired,
I curse my new boss and his new rules.
The hot suit laughs, and dares me to tell my new boss what a
dick he’s being.
With nothing to lose, I accept.
Never in a million
years could I have imagined he is my new boss.
And totally off-limits.
Dating him is against the rules.
His rules.
He doesn’t seem to care.
Until I dare him not to fall in love with me.
Even then he says
that’s easy.
That the only four-letter word he lives by is duty.
But this would-be-king is about to fall hard…for a commoner.

My review:

This book takes place after Washed Up Royal and is a standalone in the interconnected series. This book features Max, good friend and former betrothed of Princess Victoria from the first book. After Max and Tori end their engagement, Max gets a taste of freedom and goes a little wild. He is banished to the US to run a fashion magazine his great aunt has purchased. Gigi has been hired to work at the magazine as a last minute replacement. Coincidentally, Gigi is the roommate and best friend of Ava who also makes an appearance in Washed Up Royal.

Gigi has no idea who Max is, but since he’s her boss she wants to keep their relationship secret to avoid backlash at work. Once she finds out the truth, though, that is the least of their worries.

I enjoyed this book a lot. I liked Max the brief times we saw him in the first book. He was so much more in this one. He and Gigi were so good together. There was so much here, too – the romance, the difficult queen, family drama, and even a bit of a thriller aspect with a crime being committed and the subsequent events.

The ever present gambling in the Vespa Isles thread continues. I am beginning to think there is more to that story than real estate. I hope we get more information in the next book in the series.
