Would Be King by Kim Karr ~ Review & Teaser (@authorkimkarr)

I've read a few of Kim Karr's books before, and because I'm enjoying Royal Reads at the moment, I decided to grab Would Be King. It was a pretty fun and passionate read, and just what I needed!

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 rip his tie off.
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 bitch,
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 doesn't mind.
The only four-letter word he lives by is DUTY.
Too bad this would-be-king is about to fall hard...for a commoner.

It's been a while since I've read anything by Kim Karr, so when I read the blurb for this one, I just had to get it. I enjoyed watching Gigi and Max's relationship grow, the fun they had together and the trouble they found themselves in. It was an amusing, sweet and intense love story, with a touch of suspense to keep me on my toes.

Gigi and Max's first encounter was hilarious, fighting over the same cab, a dare for a ride, and a kiss and run! Only to discover that Max was to be her new boss! I knew that these two would be fun to read about and I wasn't disappointed. As the story unfolded, their connection grew, however they faced a lot of hurdles, as Max's status caught up with him and Gigi had to make decisions for her future.

Max though, being royal and all, would know to stick to his gut instincts. If he were to fire someone, he needed to stick to it–not rehire them later–I could see that this was going to backfire on him. His decision making skills seem to be fine when it came to Gigi, he fought for her every step of the way.

I enjoyed most of this read, just a few niggling issues that had me rolling my eyes, so I predicted what was going to happen. Otherwise, I quite enjoyed Karr's writing style, and the cast of characters that she introduced. There was plenty of passion between the pages, and I had hopes that Gigi and Max would be able to find happiness.
This was an amusing moment I had to share!

“Fine, one kiss and that’s it. But if your wandering hands so much as try to touch me here,” I point to my boobs, “or here,” I point to my sex, which is way too wet for my liking, “I will knee you in the balls.”
His mouth quirks up. “I’m rather fond of my balls, so I’ll be sure to mind the rules.”
