Would Be King (Standalone)
by Kim Karr (Author)
This review is from: February 20, 2019 By Kay Daniels (Kindle Edition-Goodreads)
This is the first book I’ve read by Kim Karr. I enjoyed her fast paced writing style and the quirky characters she brought to life. There were moments where I felt the fantasy of the story had me questioning if this was really possible in reality (I know I’m reading fiction and I should just go with it, but I don’t know how else to describe losing the moment, aside from just tossing it out there.)
I love that this particular Royal story had a ginger haired hero (yeah gingers!!) Max is even more endearing with his Prince Harry look-a-likeness.
Everyone wants someone to love them for themselves; not for their money, not for their fame, not for their privilege, not because of who they are, but simply for the person they are inside. Max stumbles upon Gigi, who actually has no idea who he is or where he comes from, aside that he is her new boss at the magazine Bombshell where she is to begin working. He is enamored of her boldness at basically telling him off and enjoys the brief time he spends with her before she discovers whom he actually is.
Gigi needs her job to pay her bills, live her life, well, basically survive in the city. When a stranger enters the same cab she does and then also happens to go to the same building she does, on her first day on the job no less (stalkerish much) Sure, he’s amazingly hot, and she might have kissed him, as payment for the cab ride, but she wouldn’t have done anything more, except she’s a bit upset when she discovers the hot guy from the cab is also her new boss. To top matters off, he’s not only her boss, he just so happens to be a prince.
Things go topsy-turvy in Gigi’s world and Max is feeling things he hasn’t felt, well ever. These two couldn’t be from more different worlds, but when you have a connection, you’ll do just about anything to keep it.
