An Advanced Reader Copy (ARC) of this book was received free via Netgalley for an honest review.

Wow! When I picked up The Transporter this summer, I knew I was reading the beginning of a great series. I loved the characters; I loved the world; I loved the high-octane action; I loved the tenderness. But I had no idea The Financier was going to absolutely blow me away. Because I don't care how amazing Shane is; Nick has him b

The Financier turned out to be far more than I had expected. To be honest, I was expecting a standard issue romantic suspense thriller with an over the top alpha who's brought to his knees by either an equally kick butt heroine or a simpering princess. Turns out that The Financier was none of these things except a romantic suspense thriller. It's far more layered than the standard romantic suspense, though, all thanks to two amazing leads - Nick Dawes, "the financier", who works for a mercenary ...more

M/F Thriller Romance
I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

This is a great story about priorities that you think you have and then, when something that truly matters comes in to your life, how you need to re-prioritize and re-think your life.

Nick and Jane are a strange couple. I love Jane's tough exterior and her attitude - she's hilarious at times and gentle at others. She compliments Nick's rough exterior and she knows

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. 

The Transporter was always going to be a tough act to follow. I loved that book! Shane was epic and the story was brilliant. When I heard Liz was making this into a series I was so excited. All of the Hudson Kings are such great characters, I can’t wait to hear each of their stories. 

The Financier is Nick’s book. You don’t see too much of him in The Transporter so I wasn’t sure what to expect. Shane is definitely a tough act to follow but Nick

The Hudson Kings have become my new favorite series! I'm just disappointed that only two books have been released so far. I want more of them!

I loved the first book, but I think I may have loved this one even more! In the first book, Nick had a small part. We got to know him on the very surface and I was kinda disappointed that the second book was about him and not Dex. But then I started reading his book and I fell in love with Nick!

This book has a lot of action and spy stuff. It's really fun.

This is a wonderful book that I just loved! Nick is a Hudson King, but, while he has plenty of physical skills, his greatest asset is as a money mover. Then one day on a side job he gets a bit too cute and it backfires and leaves a bullseye on his back.

Nick is a bit of a loner, so, other than the other Hudson Kings, all he cares about is his fish. When he has to keep a low profile and stay away from home, he hires Jane to stay in his condo and take care of his fish....literally take care of his

Fantastic book! It has characters that are amazing, a passionate romance, and enough suspense and action to thrill every reader. This story pulled me in immediately and I couldn't put it down until the last page.

The Financier is Book Two of Liz Maverick's Hudson Kings series. This is the first book I have read by this author and it certainly will not be the last. I actually plan to go back and read Book One for more insight into the Hudson Kings.

Even though I don't think it's necessary to have read Book One, I did struggle just slightly with the beginning trying to wrap my head around who was who and the entire plot in general. It starts out with Nick right smack dab in the middle of a heist that ends

When Jane gets flustered it's just cute, “your bed is my bed,” she said. “We’re sharing a bed? I mean, no, not that we’re sharing a bed— I just mean, you’re cool with me using your bed. I mean, um, right, sir. I think I’m going to go now.” There are times Nick is just a simple man, “I’m in bed with a beautiful woman, and tomorrow’s Sunday. I don’t want anything but this, right now,” Nick said." I liked this book, I fell in love with Nick the man was sexy.

Nothing bad to say about the book.
It's hopefully Maksim's turn next.

The "sir" thing was annoying, but not a deal breaker.

I liked the book. It’s pretty predictable but the characters where easy to relate to. The hero of the book Nick was a little bit to soft for my tastes but sweet.
