King of Hearts by L.H. Cosway
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
::..Reviewed for Red's Midnight Readers..::
What a difference?!
L.H. Cosway is so talented. The style of writing in King of Hearts is so different to the previous two books but equally as compelling to read!
However, Jack is still my favourite Oliver King was something else entirely. A man at the top of his game, driven by the demons lurking in his past. We first meet King in Hearts of Fire as a drunk but in his very own story King of Hearts, we get to meet the man he once was. My heart broke for him in this heart wrenching story. A beautiful tale of love, loss and second chances.
King and Alexis were on fire. She was independent, witty and oh so funny and he was charismatic and charming. Together they were perfect!
So well written, it flowed effortlessly and I couldn't put it down. If you enjoyed the previous two books, you will love this and if you haven't started the series yet, what are you waiting for?
Welcome to the City, London’s most prestigious square mile, where finance reigns and Oliver King is a rising prince.
I used to rule the world.
There might be wolves on Wall Street, but there were crocodiles in Canary Wharf. Some of us craved money. Some of us craved power.
I liked money, and power had its advantages, but what I really wanted was to excel, to surpass the men who came before me. I never cared much for love and romance until I met Alexis.
I could feel it the very moment she walked into the interview, with her outspoken charm and vivacious personality. She cast all the others in shadow, made me laugh when life held no humour. Our friendship should have remained professional, but it wasn’t long before the lines started to blur.
You know what they say about the best laid plans of mice and men? Well, I never foresaw where my plans would lead, and only in my darkest hour did I finally see the light…
You can have all the money and prestige in the world and still be the poorest man alive. And love, well, I hate to use a tired old cliché, but love can be the thing that truly sets you free.
