eARC Book review: The Last King (The Kings #1) by Katee Robert
eARC Provided by publisher through Netgalley
Ultra wealthy and super powerful, the King family is like royalty in Texas. But who will keep the throne? New York Times bestselling author Katee Robert introduces a red-hot new series.
THE MAN SHE HATES TO LOVE
Beckett King just inherited his father's fortune, his company-and all his enemies. If he's going to stay on top, he needs someone he can trust beside him. And though they've been rivals for years, there's no one he trusts more than Samara Mallick.
The rebel. That's how Samara has always thought of Beckett. And he's absolutely living up to his unpredictable ways when he strides into her office and asks for help. 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 King empire are mounting, and the two find family secrets darker than they ever imagined and dangerous enough to get them both killed.
Beckett King hasn't gotten along with his dad since his mother passed away as a young boy. They made it work as adults the best they could. When his father died in a car accident presumably drunk something seemed off. Samara Mallick works for a rival company owned by the his aunt who had a grudge against Beckett's dad since a falling out with her families years ago. The two clash over contracts they both go after but although they should be enemies theirs some series sizzle between them. As that attraction grows there are threats against Beckett that seem to be escalating. While Beckett and Samara draw closer Samara has to wrestle with her past demons and growing feelings for Beckett. Honestly i likes this well enough but it didn't really click for me. I couldn't get into it until the very end and i like the Frank and Journey angle more than Samara and Beckett. Frank and Journey are the next book. I can't really pinpoint what the problem was. Frank and Journey and Anderson all secondary characters are what interested me most and make me want to try the next book. We'll see.
