Highly intense and seductive friends to lovers story. Loved the descriptive setting and back story. Great read!!
This is my first introduction to the Deep 8 Series and I did enjoy it. But I also struggled as this story very much felt like a continuation of another rather than a stand alone and there was plenty early on that didn't really mean a lot to me, especially when it came to Deep 8. Although to be fair a little about Deep 8 was explained in the latter stages. Yet saying that I really liked the setting, the characters, the pockets of action and the whole idea was interesting too. As for the romance it didn't really blow me away, but I thought it worked within the story and I liked these two characters together. But honestly, I think I could've really loved this story had I read the first book which I'm definitely interested in doing and I'd certainly reread this one again afterwards. I just wish in hindsight; I'd done that first.
I received an arc from NetGalley and this is my honest opinion. King was a great read and I actually read it in one day. There is a burning love story and lots of action throughout this book. Beck learns he is to be King but it’s a blow to him as he feels like his real parents betrayed him and put him up for adoption. As he begins learning and meeting the royal family some things don’t quite seem right. In comes Pippa, the red head who comes in like a hurricane. She is someone who is brave, protective and absolutely has feelings for Beck. Both need to learn to trust the others abilities in order to get to the bottom of who is trying to Kill Beck. Great read.
I loved this book! It’s a little different from most military romantic suspense. Beck finds out his birth parents were African royalty. He’s way in over his head and needs Pippa’s help in more ways than one. Beck is such a strong willed alpha, but he’s very vulnerable in Africa. Pippa is a strong willed and very smart woman. I loved these characters. I was riveted to this book and look forward to Declan’s book. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced free copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. I received a copy from the publisher through NetGalley.
King by Kenzie Macallan. nove Deep 8 Book 2. This is my first book by this author. The cover drew me in. I love a good romance read. At first I wasn't sure how I felt about this book but as I read on it got harder to put down. 4*.
This is the first book I have read by this author and overall, I thought it was good. Definitely a 3.5 star read. My biggest issue is that Beck is kind of clueless. I mean, I love a strong female character and Pippa fits the bill- smart and a bit amusing, who showcases the issues with a man who thinks he knows all. But I also like a story featuring a man who recognizes that a team is so much more than a man who thinks he knows everything. Eventually, they work as a team but in my opinion, it takes too long. Otherwise, I liked that this is a generally well rounded story that feature romance and a bit of action. Thanks to NetGalley, the publisher and author for an early copy of this read.
I must say, This was a great read! Action packed with romance. When 1 hunky agent is told he is to be the king of an African nation, it opens up a lot of questions, issues that he intends to deal with alone. When Pippa is sent out as backup to a man that she has dreamt about, she will protect him with her life! Together the must solve the mystery of Becks brothers warehouse and why he is suddenly having memory loss. I received a complimentary copy of this book from NetGalley. The opinions expressed in this review are completely my own

This is a suspenseful, page turner, action pack, drama, entertaining, steamy romance with an awesome hero and heroine all the makings of a great read.

Pippa Stevens, is a world renowned hacker. Beck and Pippa team up for an assignment to uncover secrets that are buried in Beck’s hometown of Zambia. As the two are working together they find themselves attracted to each other.

There is so much going in this book that it kept me on the edge of my seat. I enjoyed this book that I’m going to read the first book in the series.
