Miss Byrd knocked it out of the park again with this one! I fell in love with Eamon, and I liked Victoria. Not only was the billionaire heiress jilted in Vegas when her fiance runs off with the stripper at his bachelor party, but she's tall (Amazon tall) and has a bad temper. Despite her bad attitude, I sympathized with her because you learn that the reason she behaves the way she does is to protect herself from being hurt anymore. Because she's so wealthy, she doesn't know who her real friends ...more

Nothing really stands out about King's Passion, but it's intriguing enough that I made it through the whole book in 3 days while writing an English essay, so that says something. It's the typical romance novel, though. I wish we got to know a little more about Marcus and Kent. It's a storyline that Byrd doesn't expound upon. Anyway, if you're looking for a pseudo thrilling, romance novel with hot sex scenes, then King's Passion is definitely for you.

WOW... Triple HOT

You talking about hot, sticky, wet. Damn, I must admit today this book hit the spot for me. I could not have asked for a better lift to my day.

The sassy fire of Victoria was what set me up real good. She was girl after my own heart. There was something about all that sass and being rich that let me know it was gonna take a very special man to break her down (even if it was only in the bedroom). I Eamon was the prescription that was very much needed. He let that fire be lite on day one. The kiss

Here is my review from romanceincolor.com

Heiress Victoria Gregory is all about control in her life, even down to a spreadsheet to determine who she should marry. But, on her wedding day Victoria learns that her spreadsheet-determined fiancé has left her at the altar, and married someone else. All Victoria can think about is revenge for the ridicule and humiliation she is suffering.

Sexy Eamon King is caught by surprise when Victoria storms into his Las Vegas club, looking for the owner, to serve

What an awesome read. They did THANGS here, there and everywhere, this is what a fantasy read is all about. Eoman and Victoria, what a turn on to see both characters interacting with each other. The moment both Eamon and Victoria connects sparks were flying. Their whole relationship from start to end kept me engaged in the story and the sex between these two OMG.

Victoria's fiancé went to a bachelor party where me met a stripper, he then marries the stripper and calls Victoria to say he has marr

Always a big fan of Adrianne Byrd, and King's Passion was a fun read. The one thing I really missed from this story was the lack of Byrd drama. Considering the fact that both Eamon and Victoria came from such elaborate lifestyles, I was kind of missing the emotional connection for either character. What was their life crisis? "Woe is me, I have to much money?" That formula never works, and I'm a little surprised at the messy attempt to try to go there in this novel, something Adrianne usually ne ...more

Have you ever felt like you showed up late to a party? That's how I feel when I read this book I stumbled upon Adrianne Byrd books strictly by accident. I pick up a copy of one of her books in the discount section at my library for sell. I started reading the book and I could not put the book down.I read the Unforgettable Series About the Hinton Brothers..I fell in love with them and so naturally I had to read About their cousins the King Brothers... O M G I wish I would have learned of Ms. Byrd ...more

King's Passion started off with a wedding that didn't happen. A man you would least expect runs off and marries a stripper from his bachelor party. Enter Victoria: the bride waiting at the altar and the Eamon, the owner of the gentlemen's club that hosted the bachelor party...this is where the story really begins. I wasn't sure I would enjoy the story. It was predictable, but still a good read. What I didn't expect was the erotica. Although it was unexpected, it showcased the passion between Eam ...more

This book is laugh-out-loud good! Eamon King and his two brothers are proud owners of a gentleman's club. They host top of the line bachelor parties. Unfortunately, Marcus, one of the honorees, jilts his fiancee to marry Delicious, one of the strippers. Well Victoria didn't appreciate being dumped in front of her snooty friends and family. So she decides to sue Eamon King for 50 million dollars. What happens next is hilarious!

I think it's a typical man meets woman, they start to go at it pretty hot and heavy rather quickly, neither really expecting it to go further than just a physical encounter however as always someone catches feelings until the inevitable glitch that leaves the question of whether the two can endure the challenge that could threaten the future of the their relationship...
Some old story just different scenery...

Ms. Byrd came back so strong with this book. Eamon & Victoria had it all, hot passion, funny moments, and of course the drama that almost broke them up. They had this steamy sexual chemistry from the very beginning, and it just keep this book fire hot until the very last page. It was kool to see Quentin back as well. I'm hoping he gets his chance down the road to find love again. Can't wait for Xavier's story next month! Keep em coming!

Wow, King's Passion is an understatement, this book was super hot, had a great hero and heroine and what I loved the most is it wasn't one of the fell deeply in love in a few days/weeks, it gave the reader (at least this one) the sense that these two had something lasting that will endure the test of time.  This is definitely going on my re-read list.

This is my favorite of the King, you go boy! Loved it. I felt sorry for Q of course and I feel him. I hope in his story he tells Sterling off becuase that's still screwed up how he did him. At least that's how I see it. Sorry I'm still a Q fan but Eamon...loved it.

I actually enjoyed this novel. It was a pretty quick read and the characters were likable. I'm wondering what it's going to take for Quinton to get his stuff together because he clearly has some issues that he needs to resolve.

Iam look forward to reading the three king brother's series . Adrianne Byrd has not written a book that I have not like so far. So I recommen that if you have not read any of her books that you hurry and get started you what be disappointed. These books are great.
