This type of book is a nice little escape when you’ve been reading too many “deep” books or even if you just want a little smut in your life. This was a traditional story of a sexy, handsome bad boy meets mysterious gorgeous woman…falls for her after one night of extremely good sex…and basically, if you’ve read one, you’ve read them all. We all know the formula. We know what happens. There are misunderstandings and truths discovered, and of course they end up together. That is the story of Jeremy and Leigh. They meet at bachelor party, have a great night (no names exchanged), then she takes off. Later he finds that the woman he can’t forget about is his best friends fiancé.
It’s a fun and light read, I read it in 2 sittings. The characters are predictable and likeable at the same time. I did enjoy Ms.Byrd’s writing style. I liked how we got to see the goings on from 3 perspectives. Jeremy’s, Leigh’s and Quentin (Jeremy’s cousin). Let me tell you poor Quentin has some monkeys on his back that he is having a tough time shaking. King’s Pleasure is the 3rd book in the House of Kings series. I was able to read this and get a good idea what happened in the previous 2 books with the other two brothers without having to read them. I’ll probably eventually read the other two books when I want to break things up a bit and read some fun romance. I may save it for my summer reading!
If you take this book for what it is, you’ll enjoy it!
