5 FAIRYTALE CROWNS
This whole series of standalones (I’m not really sure it counts as a series, but it centers around the same group of people) has quickly turned me into a huge fan of Kim Karr. Her stories are fun and entertaining, and the chemistry between her characters absolutely sizzles.
Hollywood Prince follows the story of Brooklyn and Amelia, and the chemistry between the is off the charts. What I love most though is that the chemistry is natural between the two of them. It is never forced, and it is ALWAYS electric. From the moment readers meet Brooklyn, he is everything a bad boy should be. Hot as sin and a player, but he is also more. Underneath the bad boy is a man who wants to be more. He wants to be better. He wants want his friends have found, and Amelia is just the girl to give it to him. She is his impetus to make changes, to become a better version of himself. There are moments of uncertainty, moments when he doubts it all, and it hurts to see. He, like every good hero, gets it together, but not before he breaks your heart a little bit. His counterpart, Amelia is much more complicated character in terms of how I felt about her. In the beginning of the story, she is naive and is shielded from the “bad” in her life. When her pretty world is blown up she flees to find answers. At the beginning of the story, I wasn’t sure I was going to love her, but I did. Her world being destroyed set her down a path to self-discovery. Once her blindfold has been removed, she begins to make amends for her mistakes and to make changes for herself. Part of doing what makes her happy is getting involved with Brooklyn, and just as she helps him better himself, he helps her do the same. Truly, this couple and their relationship make the entire book!
The plot of this story follows the typical trope. There aren’t any surprises or plot twists, but that did not in any way deter my love of this book. It is light and fun, pure entertainment at its best. I adore the characters and their story, and I absolutely swooned over the ending. Kim Karr certainly delivers the fairytale ending for her princess and her frog turned prince.
Kim Karr is quickly becoming a go-to author for me when I am looking for a light and fun romance. I have fallen in love with every character and every story she has written, and I am always left with a smile on my face. How can a reader ask for anything more?
ARC received in exchange for an honest review.
Brooklyn James should know better.
Born into Hollywood royalty, the brooding prince has a reputation as being a player. A manwhore. A womanizer.
Adoring fans are his thing.
His best friend’s little sister is not.
Even thinking about her the way he is isn’t cool.
Not cool at all.
And yet every time she pouts those sexy lips at him, she turns him inside out. Makes him harder than he’s ever been. Drives him to the brink of insanity.
Amelia Waters has always idolized her big brother, and the last thing she wants to do is disappoint him.
Falling for her brother’s ex-roommate is off-limits.
She knows this, but she can’t help herself.
The way Brooklyn looks at her with those smoldering blue eyes makes her wet in an instant. Turns her into a shivering, shaking mess of sexual frustration. And soon the idea of spreading her legs for him is the only thing she can think about.
She wants him.
He wants her.
When they finally decide to give in to their insane attraction, they agree it will remain between them. That their illicit affair will be short-term. No strings. No baggage. No messy ending.
But when the first night of mind-blowing sex leads to another, and another still, how long can the endless hookups go on before Amelia’s brother finds out? Or worse yet, before feelings develop?
Brooklyn and Amelia know they need to walk away from each other before either of those things happens.
The problem is doing it.
Talk about a mess.
Hollywood Prince is a sexy, standalone, contemporary romance about a bad boy and the off-limits girl who steals his heart.
