Kingsley Lennox, AKA King, has been dubbed a genius of the architectural world. Anything he touches turns to gold, and being as successful as he is, his work is his number one priority. He doesn’t have time to date or deal with the slew of women that gawk at him just because of his perfect face and chiseled body. Plus, no one has interested him enough to give a shit, until the smart-mouthed Everly Adams, AKA Ever, wakes to the noise of him restoring the building next door to hers.
Ever, like King, doesn’t have the time or the desire to date, she’s been through so much. So when she meets King, she can’t help but want nothing at all to do with the arrogant asshole. For one, they share nothing in common. For another, he’s pompous, cocky, and throws his money around as if that will win her heart. Did I mention he’s fucking crazy and very controlling? No, thank you!
But when King sets his mind to something, he accomplishes it…always has, always will. Ever is the biggest challenge he’s faced, but will she be the only person he can’t impress?
Can King win her over, all while hiding the truth about who he really is?
It was the blurb of this book that actually got to me! I honestly can’t tell you how much I adore cocky heroes, especially the ones who aren’t jerky just charmingly cocky – believe there is a fine lie between those two!
Ever is a chef, a woman who still hasn’t really moved on from the loss of her mother (tbh, neither has her father!), when she encounters King, a celebrated architect who is currently working on restoring the building next to her.
King on the other hand, is rich and definitely believes that action speak louder than words and for the world that is the way it is, it honestly works for him – so it is easy to understand his cockiness.
Ever and King have a really confrontational first meeting – Ever is a woman who doesn’t really take any sort of crap from anyone, let alone a man who is responsible for her uncomfortable atmosphere at her home. So she is kind of shocked, when King actually starts making overtures (in terms of material gifts!) yet quite rebellious as well.
Honestly, I would have appreciated a chapters in King’s POV as well – just so that I could have had an insight to really erratic behaviour by him. And while I understood the kind of attraction Ever and King had with each other, it would have been better with little more conversation between them. I needed that communication between them to cement them together in my mind.
But yes, I enjoyed their confrontational conversations with each other – it was fun, emotional and I absolutely sailed through the book. And it is only towards the end of the book that we get a whole lot of insight into King’s mind, and that definitely racked up brownie points in my opinion. Not only that, the POV of King was a sweet deal at the end that really topped it off!
First read from L K Collins for me, but it definitely won’t be the last! ❤
