The second novel in USA Today bestselling author Penelope Bloom’s Anyone But… series turns up the heat and hilarity with a story about second chances and promises worth breaking.

After Cade King cost me everything, I vowed I’d never fall for him again—even if he became rich and megafamous.

Now he’s back, and he’s still the embodiment of a big, shiny red button. Everybody knows you shouldn’t toucmegafamous.

Fun and easy read with great characters!


Cade is one of those people that are always fun to be around! He is someone that can turn the most innocuous sentences into a joke or sexual innuendo, and he does it in such a deadpan way that you don’t know he’s kidding until you process what he said, and it will turn out to be something hilarious.

Cade dated Iris in high school until hi

I really enjoyed this second chance romance. I loved the main author Cade. He is very charming. I liked this this book was not like typical second change story. You start to get invested in the relationship between Cade and Iris. You also start to really like Bear ( Cades son) who brings Cade and Iris back together.
This book gives me the feels and i think anyone who want to read it will think its very cute.

I was so excited to get this book. I had fell in love with the King brothers from the very first book Anyone but Rich and I liked Cade in that one, I liked Iris too so I was anxious for this book. I did enjoy it, however since I had cracked up at Cade's antics in the previous books, I was expecting more from him in this one. Please do not misunderstand and think I didn't like it, I totally did but again I was expecting more..I liked Iris but more in the first book, she wasn't as funny in this on ...more

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is the second book in the series and I would recommend that you read Rich's story first, as it sets the scene, and gives you some background and insight into the men's childhood and meteoric rise. Oh my their parents were and are just horrible!

Cade is Rich's twin, he has always been the joker, and the one who avoids any seriousness he can. Even though Rich has fallen in love again with his childhood sweetheart, Kira, and

“Is it weird that I just want to curl up in a ball, roll downhill at full speed, and then take out his legs?”

After reading Anyone But Rich I was really looking forward to reading Cade and Iris's story due to their witty banter and I wasn't disappointed. The pair had me chuckling at their comments but it was mainly Cade that had the banter this time. I wish we'd had a bit more of Iris's sharp wit that we saw in the first book.
Loved the story line it kept me engaged and didn't want to stop

I hesitated after reading book 1 in this series to dive into book 2 but, I really enjoyed this one more. I liked Cade and Iris together and liked the spin on the second chance romance. It was a fun, easy read and kids always make me enjoy the story just a little more.

I absolutely love everything about this book. If you love a good second chance romance, then you need too read Iris & Cade’s story. Cade is very charming and absolutely hilarious. Bear omg he was adorable and completely stole the show. This book and characters had me hooked from page one. Another great read that everyone must read.

I heart Penelope Bloom. She writes the funniest sexy-romantic books... Honestly, if you're ever in a slump, reading or otherwise, just pick up one of her Objects of Attraction series and a smile and a laugh is in short order.

First of all I'd like to thank Montlake Romance for sharing an ARC of this book in exchange for my review.

Seven years ago, Iris was in high school and was a promising soccer player when some laced brownies were found in her locker and she was kicked off the team. They weren't here brownies but those of her boyfriend, Cade. She was so upset she broke up with him and she swore a pact with her two best friends that they wouldn't have anything to do with Cade and his brothers. The brothers left tow

Anyone But Cade, the second book in Penelope Bloom’s Anyone But... series, was a super fun, easy read, second chance at love RomCom which was such a pleasure to read!

Currently the pact has been irreparably damaged because Kira married Rich!

Anyone But Cade by Penelope Bloom is the second book of the "Anyone But..." series. If you had read the first book in the series, Anyone But Rich, you'll know who the characters are already and the back story. Iris and her BFFs, Kira and Miranda, all vowed to never let the King brothers get in between their friendships again. Seven years ago, they sworn an oath to never date a King brother. Seven years later, the billionaire King brothers return to their small town with a new business venture.

Well, this time around, it's Cade Kings turn up on stage to do his best to woo the ever so enchanting, batton wielding Iris the enforcer back into his arms.

He has his work cut out for him- she'd love nothing more than to lock him up and throw away the key, with his mouth duct-taped, of course. Fate may have to step in and th

This series (which each can be read as a stand alone) features the billionaire King brothers. This book is all about Cade. The fun, carefree, jokester brother. Trying to win back his high school sweetie isn't going to be that easy, even if he knows she's just as attracted to him now as she was back then. Iris may be physically attracted to Cade, but after he destroyed her life by his recklessness, she doesn't trust him any further than she can throw him, at least when it comes to her heart and h ...more

Iris and Cade were high school sweethearts until Cade made a huge mistake and cost Iris the future she thought she wanted. After the incident, Iris made a pact with her two best friends to forget about the King brothers, no matter how rich or famous they became. Now it's seven years later and Cade's back, unfortunately for Iris he's even more handsome and charming than he was when he left, he also still has the same attention span as a gnat.

This is the second book in the rom-com Anyone But... series. Cade is the second King brother to successfully get a second chance at love. If you've read Anyone but Rich, you'll remember three friends-Iris, Miranda, and Kira make a promise to have nothing to do with the King brothers, who have recently moved the headquarters of their business from the city back to their small hometown. Cade is a total free spirit, uses humour for all occasions, and can be quite silly. Iris, who had good reason to ...more

Anyone but Cade is a hilarious second-chance chance romp!

Cade is one of those guys that can always find fun and humor in a situation. He is quick-witted, fast with a joke and innuendo, and great delivery. He dated Iris in high school, but he just wasn't mature enough to keep her then, and Iris and her friends swore off the King Brothers for life.

Anyone but Cade was hilariously funny! That dude was a character. It’s difficult taking him seriously especially with the weird things that come out of his mouth. Sometimes it’s so stupid but kinda makes sense (if you really think hard about it).

Seriously this guy had me laughing out loud so much of the time...but even being the goof 1000% of the time, it’s clear as day he has a good, kind heart. It takes a specula person to really “get him” and that person is Iris. She understood him on a leve

When she and Miranda and Kira made a pact to stay away from the King brothers forever, she had no idea that when they all decided to move back to town they would interact as much as they have.
