After finishing ‘Washed Up Royal’, I was looking forward to get my hands on ‘Would be King’. After breaking his engagement with Princess Victoria of Alexandria, not the Queen, Prince Maximus Napoleon Montgomery of Casanovia, aka Max, he gets wild, really wild. While sowing his wild oats, he keeps creating a scandal after scandal. So there comes a point that King and Queen are fed up with his antics. They decide best way to get him under control is to ship him to Newport, aka Royal playground, but their mission fails miserably. Now that King is really pissed, Max’s last chance is to stay out of trouble and run his aunt’s business in NYC.
Gianna Natalia Gatsby, aka Gigi, is really close to make her dream, getting a job in the fashion industry, come true. The only thing she needs to do to get her new job is be there on time but life has ways to mess with you and every freaking thing was working against her. First the rain, then heel getting stuck in sewer grate, metro card going down the drain and losing wallet. But Gigi being her lively and smart self gets into a cab with a ginger stranger. Even though, her brain and body says ‘Ginger Danger’, she doesn’t have a chance other than bargaining. So the deal is a kiss for a free cab ride. What she didn’t know that the person she shared a sizzling hot kiss is her soon-to-be boss and a Royal.
Other than the no tardiness rule, Gigi’s new company also has a strict no fraternization policy. But Max being the confident, cocky boss, who is a rule breaker, tries his best to tempt Gigi to break the rules. Gigi and Max are amazing together. They always have fun, the chemistry is off the charts and their banter is wonderful. Even though, their relationship is going well royal and commoner love is never easy. Max is stuck between his duty for his country and love of his life. And add his new betrothed, Princess Beatrice Hill, and King Rutherford’s plans for legalizing gambling, it becomes a mess.
‘Would be King’ was an adorable, light, fun and sexy read that you won’t be able to stop reading. It can be read as a standalone but I totally recommend you to read the first book ‘Washed Up Royal’. Next book in the series is ‘Wanna be Heir’, story of Prince Phillip Lexington of Catalina and I cannot wait to read it.
P.S. I would also love to read Rachel & Truman’s and Hunter & Ava’s stories. I hope they will get their stories as well.
