Adult; Romance; 336 Pages
Forever (April 3, 2018)
Opposites attract in this sexy new contemporary romance series from the New York Times bestselling author of The Marriage Contract.
The rebel. That’s how Samara Mallick has always thought of Beckett King. And he’s absolutely living up to his unpredictable ways when he strides into her office and asks for help after inheriting his father’s company. She can’t help wondering if it’s a legit request or just a ploy to get her into bed. Not that she’d mind either one. After all, she likes to live on the edge too.
But soon the threats to the Kings are mounting, and the two find family secrets darker than they ever imagined and dangerous enough to get them both killed.
About the Author
New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. RT Book Reviews named her title, The Marriage Contract, “a compulsively readable book with just the right amount of suspense and tension.” When not writing sexy contemporary and romantic suspense, she spends her time playing imaginary games with her children, driving her husband batty with what-if questions, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
Hunky billionaire and enemies-to-lovers romance crown The Last King by Katee Robert. Steamy balanced with sweet that gripped me on page one and continued to the very end.
Beckett has inherited…almost everything, after his father’s sudden death. But a family rift that goes back decades leaves him in a perilous position that could cost him what he has left. His rival, Samira, is on his heels, working hard to wipe him out on behalf of his embittered aunt, but with the history between these two, feelings are bound up, the heat is intense, and people are getting hurt.
Samara is game for taking down the playboy revel that’s been a thorn in her side for years. She has her reasons for playing hardball, and she swallows her pride in the office, putting up with her tyrant boss, to keep herself out of trouble, and to not repeat her mother’s mistakes. Unfortunately, her boss is Beckett’s embittered aunt, and the family secrets and corporate espionage are becoming complicated and downright dangerous for her. Her long-held and coveted position in the rival oil company loses its shine as her boss repeatedly pushes her to compromise her integrity to destroy a man that Samara is only just starting to understand.
The Last King is high-quality romantic suspense that I’d add to my top ten list (if such things were possible to keep track of!). Subplots abound, and things are twisty; and from the outset, it’s clear who’s doing wrong to whom, but getting to the outing of such secrets was so much fun! Sexy suspense that’ll keep you reading until you hit the back cover.
