Last year when I finished THE LAST KING I couldn't wait to get my hands on Frank's book. He was an enigmatic man who, when in the same room with Journey King, did nothing but argue with her. They had quite the dynamic so I was giddy to see how they would work out.

While I got to know Journey I realized how broken she really is. There are two people in this world who are supposed to protect you and love you unconditionally. While her mother wasn't the warmest person and

The Fearless King is Katee Robert's newest addition to The Kings series and follows Journey King and Frank Evans. I actually haven't read the previous book yet but I didn't have any issues reading this one first. If you want more of a backstory then I definitely recommend reading the series in order, though.

This book was an exhilarating read and it had me captivated from the very beginning. Journey was a complex character and I loved being able to figure her out th

I have been a long time fan of Katee Robert. She has a broad range of ability and it has grown over the years. With this new series, she continues to engage her readers and present themes and stories which will capture you from the start. This is a series and we met these characters in the first book, The Last King. However, you can read this entry without experiencing it...though after reading The Fearless King, you may find you

This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceI received this book for free from Forever in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

The Fearless King is the second book in the "Kings" series and this is the newest series by Katee Robert and I am in love. There is something so unique about how this author writes her stories and she delivers some wonderful suspenseful elements that are mind-boggling and just immediately pulls

At this point, it's safe to say that Katee Robert is one of my go-to romance authors. I can always expect to deliver swoony and steamy reads with a good dose of complicated family dynamics. The Fearless King was another one of her books that I just about inhaled. It was just so good!

We met both Journey and Frank in the first The Kings book, The Last King. I was intrigued by their dynamic from the very beginning and was pretty much dying to see how their relationship would unfold. It was so much

In The Fearless King we get Frank and Journey's story. We met both of them in book one as side characters. There is some major family drama going on that connects both couples and many of the side characters.

After Beckett forced Journey's mom to leave the state in book one, that left her and her siblings open for their father, Elliott to come back and try to take their company from them. It isn't as simple as a hostile takeover, Elliott is a monster and abused all four of his children when they

After reading The Last King, I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the next book in the series and when I found out Frank was going to be our lead man, I was ALL over it ~ even before reading the blurb ~ and boy was it worth the wait! Intense, smexy and all kinds of craycray. This one definitely upp’d the ante in more than one way and I loved every second of it!

The Fearless King is book two in The Kings series by Katee Robert. This novel is a contemporary romance with a suspense twist.

Journey King is shareholder and COO of her family’s business, Kingdom Corp. She’s been doing everything she can to avoid Frank Evans and any appearance of impropriety. Surprisingly, Journey finds herself in need of Frank’s assistance when her estranged father makes an unexpected attempt to take over the company she and her siblings have worked hard to make profitable.

I have been dying (like DYING) to read this book ever since Katee Robert announced its release!

Sissy's Romance Book Review
The Fearless King by Katee Robert is book Two in The Kings Series. This is the story of Journey King and Frank Evans. I have read the previous book and Journey and Frank were in that book, but this can be a standalone if you wish to do so. Journey mother has past and now Journey wants to secure her mother's business but her evil father is back wanting to take over. Journey fears no one but past fears about her father does set her back. Thinking that Frank would be the perfect decoy for her to ha ...more

YOU GUYS!!! THIS BOOK WAS EVERYTHING!! I loved Samara and Beck in book one but honestly knew that Journey and Frank were going to own me. And frankly (no pun intended) - that's exactly what they did. I loved them so hard as this book came out of nowhere for me. In full transparency, it's obvious that bloggers read alot of books, right? Sometimes more than we physically should (as sleep deprivation is a real thing.) But honestly, The Fearless King is one of the few books I can think of that had m ...more
Reading ‘The Fearless King’ was sort of bizarre, because it felt like a very well-written drama that I wanted more of, but couldn’t understand because I was tossed straight into the middle of a series at say, episode 143 with a backlog of events that I’d already forgotten about having read the first book a long time ago. As a result, this hardly felt like a standalone with a sorely-lacking backstory that I had to spend quite a bit of time figuring out, right up until the halfway point of the boo ...more

Journey King is hanging on by a thread. She's COO of a major oil company in Houston, TX, run by her family. But, her mom was run out of town by her estranged cousin after Lydia did something truly horrific, and now Journey and her siblings are on their own.

Katee Robert is such a master at family drama and suspense. In The Fearless King, the continuation of the King family drama starts off with another family member. The branches to their family tree proves that even some family can’t be trusted. A fact Journey King and her siblings are far to aware of.

In The Last King, cousin Beckett King, defeated his aunt and her attempts to rid him from the family. Now that she’s basically banished, there is a void that the worst of the worst shows up

The Fearless King is the second book in The Kings series and is not a complete stand-alone book. The main plot is the continuation of book one and you need to have fresh the events of The Last King if you don't want to feel like a fish out of the water. I wonder how much I will remember once book 3 is released because a lot of things are going on in this book and I am certain I won't remember them all. The most important thing is that Journey and Frank got their happy end.

The Fearless King is definitely not what I thought it would be. It was better. I jumped into this series with this book and I have no regrets. (I need to go back and read book one though!)

Journey is the kind of woman I want to grow up to be. She is strong, smart, and when she gets out of her own head, a force to be reckoned with. Now, Frank on the other hand....

Frank is devilishly handsome, cunning, and a master planner. He is everything sexy about this book. The chemistry they have is deliciou
Things got real ugly real fast for the Kings in this one. Daddy dearest came home and was the same nightmare he was when the kids were little. It was interesting how all of them reacted and broke my heart at the same time. I liked that they did their best to stand up to him again. At times it was hard and a lot of the standing up was one step forward, 2 steps back. By the end I was cheering Journey on, she finally was standing up for herself and those she loved.

These dysfunctional Kings really bring out all the crazy in this one. When her father returns in an attempt to take back control of the family business, Journey King knows she is going to have to take drastic measures to prevent it. Turning to Frank Evans for help may be the most drastic measure of all. It's no secret he isn't a fan of the Kings but he is the only one who could turn up enough dirt to keep her father at bay. Helping Journey isn't something Frank really wants to do but he knows th ...more

I would definitely recommend reading the first book in the Kings series before starting this one. This book jumps right in from the get go. It took me a minute to catch up. I still felt a touch out of pocket for most of the book.

I loved Frank. Who doesn’t love a sexy, chocolate man that protects his own fiercely? I liked Journey as a heroine. She went through so much, but came out a strong woman. The secondary characters were well done. I’m excited for more to come.

That is, until her father returns and decides it's time to flex his majority shares in Kingdom Corp by becoming more involved in the company.

Journey King is an expert at managing the family business. But when her father returns to Houston hell-bent on making a play for the company, Journey will do anything to stop him, even if that means going to Frank Evans for help. Frank deals in information, the dirtier the better. Rugged and rock solid, he’s by far her best ally—and also the most dangerous.

I have been looking forward to Frank and Journey's story after meeting them in Beckett and Samara's book.

Journey King has learned the art of maintaining appearances and ruling her empire with a cool hand. After all, her mother was the Queen B in charge for long enough to provide a role model in that aspect. But the real introduction to putting up walls and showing no fear came much earlier in life at the hands of her sadistic monster of a father Elliott. That man still evokes real fear and hatr

Heart-pounding intrigue! I didn't know if it was possible for Katee Robert to match the raw potency of her The O'Malleys series, but she's blowing me away once again with The Kings. Beckett's story grabbed my heart in Book One and now she's back with a powerful follow-up that has Journey reaching out to the one man she never thought she'd go to for help ... and it's delicious!
