I have been a long time fan of Katee Robert. She has a broad range of ability and it has grown over the years. With this new series, she continues to engage her readers and present themes and stories which will capture you from the start. This is a series and we met these characters in the first book, The Last King. However, you can read this entry without experiencing it...though after reading The Fearless King, you may find yourself running to do so.

This is a tale of many complexities.
You have a woman who is forced to fight for a company she devoted herself to...Her mother had started it then due to circumstances, had to leave it. Now secrets which her daughter and son had no knowledge of coming to the surface, bringing back the abusive evil father who left years ago. Unfortunately, they had experienced his abuse and mental hostility first hand before he was pushed out. When he thrusts himself into the mix, with legit papers showing he has merit on his claims, these siblings have to figure out how to overcome this obstacle.

Journey King had worked and acquired all the tools to be a success. Her mother trained her and pushed her hard. Journey was confident and had been comfortable in her own skin. She would attempt almost anything if it would win her a contract. Frank Evans was a goal ...or should be thought of the obstacle to an acquisition her company wanted. He was a force, a man who would turn heads and then also let others know to beware. Journey knew of him, was attracted but also aware he was not her ally.

But Frank was the man who knew things... he was the holder of all the secrets in town and beyond...in other words, he knew where all the "Bodies were buried". He made his knowledge only available to a special few. He watched, listened and compensated others who listened and told to him, too.

As an African American man in America, Frank also was aware of the ugly allowed in the world. He experienced it personally and accrued the power he had now because of it. His power was respected yet he was well aware of those still lost to the Ole Times who viewed him threw past eyes, happily.

The need for Journey to turn to Frank to fight for her company and emotional life causes these people to become aware of the attraction which will not be denied. They are explosive and raw, real and complicated. There are obstacles which will need to be destroyed for them to achieve their happiness.

Katee Robert takes a complicated story and gives it life. She tells it head on and doesn't skirt the ugly life throws at these two. She takes the reader on a full complete ride and does not disappoint.

A gifted copy was provided by author/publisher for an honest review.




New York Times and USA TODAY bestselling author Katee Robert learned to tell her stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her 2015 title, The Marriage Contract, was a RITA finalist, and RT Book Reviews named it '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.
