Ambition. Revenge. Love.

RITA® Award-winning author Kennedy Ryan delivers the gripping conclusion to the All the King’s Men Duet.

Raised to resist. Bred to fight. Survival is in my blood and surrender is never an option.

Though surrender is what Maxim Cade demanded of my body and heart, I had other plans. We were fast-burning fascination and combustible chemistry, but t

AHHH!! Kennedy Ryan just delivered one of the most magnificent reads I have EVER read! The Rebel King is absolutely spectacular as it not only contains passion, and turmoil but it is honestly One of the Greatest Love Stories EVER Written! Maxim and Lennix were EVERY-DAMN-THING. Their love, respect and dedication for one other was almost tangible. I was immersed in the story and felt their connection right of the pages. The Rebel King will ultimately blow your mind and stay with you forever!

How does one get over the hangover after reading prolific Kennedy Books, long enough to attempt to write a review?. The urge to re-enter the her sacred realm is acute, the world she creates and hands over to you is so very real and alive. All her subjects carry a strong message of racial harmony and tolerance. Everybody MUST READ this fantastic Duet. Set against the backdrop of powerful, redemptive love story, this is a socio-political commentary underlining the timeless importance of it, especi ...more

Maxim is my once-in-a-lifetime, and I’m his.

After reading The Kingmaker, I couldn't wait to read the conclusion of Nix and Maxim's story in The Rebel King. I always worry when a duet starts off so strong, that the second part may not live up to the first... That was not the case here. This second book was just as wonderful as the first. It was beautifully written, and went in directions I never saw coming.

The ending of book one left us in a killer cliffhanger. I was so h

What a journey. What a love. What an epic conclusion to All The Kings Men Duet. Kennedy Ryan delivers. I strapped myself in and was ready for takeoff from page 1. I was on the edge of my seat. Biting my nails, holding myself in not wanting to go the toilet. I was completely immersed in this story. With Nix and Doc.
The prose jumps off the page. Flawlessly written. I was completely mesmerized thanks to the undeniable connection and intoxicating love between this couple. Wanting and needing more w

“You signed up for me,” I say, wanting to shout, but keeping my voice low. “And I signed up for you, whatever that means, wherever that takes us.”


Waw. What a ride!

Whatever Kennedy Ryan writes, I’m gonna read it. I love her. And I loved this book. She just knows how to write a really powerful, impactful, meaningful, emotional, and brilliant book.

Reading her books, you can always expect;
A strong as hell heroine. I always admire her heroines. Lennix was so strong and brave. She’s someone

In lieu of the election, I re-read this. LOL, no, I picked this up on a whim because I was suddenly reminded of Maxim. Didn’t want to read the part about him and Lennix not together, so I skipped to this one. Anyway, the point is, LOVE the story still and Maxim Cade. ♥

Also, (off topic but wanted to say) congratulations on winning the election! I hope it’s secured, over and truly done with. But knowing Trump and his antics, that’s probably to much to ask. Let’s

What is there to say about The Rebel King? It was consuming, inspiring, and emotional. It pulled on every single heart string I have, and when it was all said and done I wasn’t ready to move on or say goodbye. I wanted a million and one epilogues. I wanted to stay with Maxim and Lennix well into their relationship, like old and gray.

These two change and evolve after the events at the end of book one; they kind of have to as a result of what occurs. Kennedy Ryan,

“We weren’t unlikely, Nix,” I say, no levity in the words. “We were inevitable.”

Must read Book 1 as this picks up where the cliffhanger left off.

Characters
Maxim (has a PhD in Climate Science):
Maxim is from a wealthy family who has made their living in the oil/gas industry. However, Maxim doesn’t support the use of fossil fuels, so he doesn’t want anything to do with the family business and has created his own business. He loves his family, but has a strained relation

HOT DAMN!!! The Rebel King was the perfect ending to this duet. The powerful punch this series delivers hit me in all my feels. I’m continually impressed with the way Ms. Ryan is able to convey a story that has the reader so absorbed into the story that the outside world no longer exists.

THE POWER COUPLE

Lennix and Maxim are the ultimate power couple. These two never fail to keep it real. In a world where a woman would be more likely to concede her career and ambitions, Lennix makes it kno

With this duet, Kennedy has created another fantastic world full of characters that I simply fell in love with. Her writing is so good and so smart. She always brings up real issues and writes kick ass women of color. I loved Maxim and Lennix and their road to their HEA. I do have to admit that I saw that plot twist coming since book one. Of course I won’t spoil anything but I had an inkling that the story was actually going to go in that direction and I was actually glad it went there.

Trust me when I tell you that Kennedy Ryan is a contemporary author queen!!!





She writes real-life characters in a real setting with.. you guessed it REAL & believable feelings, conversations, actions... I may not like them all the time, or things they do..but I get them on a basic human level!

Another thing is the heroine...Kennedy's heroine is a special sort of dear to my heart. And I am a hard b*tch to please when comes to heroines. Shout out to my friend Renegade, she explains it so much bett

The Rebel King is a superb conclusion to ALL THE KING'S MEN duet.
It's on a class of its own. It is Kennedy Ryan like never before. She does not hold back and gives it to us with a gut wrenching punch to the Heart and Soul and it feels GOOD!

Kennedy Ryan gives us her best in all her books which are Uniquely and Independently AMAZING. In fact, Rita Award-winning.

Title: The Rebel King (All the King's Men Duet #2)
Author: Kennedy Ryan



What an epic conclusion! I was at the edge of my seat while I read The Rebel King.
Kennedy Ryan has cemented the fact that she is truly an amazing author.

The Rebel King was suspenseful and so damn passionate.

Lennix Moon Hunter, the girl who chases stars, this powerful heroine is without a doubt one of the bravest characters I have read about. I am utterly in awe of her.

Successful = Selfish

I really enjoyed the thought-provoking, fast-paced, exciting and very sexy first instalment of All the King's Men but The Rebel King left me unsatisfied. I loved the two characters I first met and admired them for their determination and conviction to make our world a better place. In All the King's Men, it seems they've lost that spark I admired. What was left was exactly what I've come to expect from successful people...self-centred and single-minded ambition, to be the bes

I am ready to drop...
I am still wondering how I managed to finish this book. I struggled so badly!
Lennix annoyed me to the fullest degree! Maxim was really trying hard for their relationship whilst she did nothing at all. Also I didn’t like the turn of events with Owen, Maxim’s brother.
And all these never ending paragraphs about politics, not my cup of tea!!!

How does Kennedy Ryan continue to write breathtaking romances while making such important, impactful messages in the process? I absolutely loved The Kingmaker and knew that The Rebel King would be no different!

After that cliffhanger of book one, I knew we would be in for a ride in this book. I loved how this started out as more of a suspenseful book and I honestly had no idea how our characters were going to make it out of that situation. Nothing was drawn out, though, which I really appreciate

I knew I knew, I knew this is going to be an epic read and indeed it was. The Rebel King is a beautiful, captivating at some point suspenseful story. The characters are so real and emotion-filled that they touched my heart. I could not put it down.

As the story continues, Maxim proves that he will do anything for Lennix. You will really fall in love with this man on how he treats his lady. He's so swoon-worthy. While Lennix is still an independent, head-strong woman we have known. She really shi

REVIEW: 4 STARS
"Desire and need suffocate my good intentions."


Disclaimer: I don’t really like when the real world invades my book world in drastic measures. So, I am shocked at how much I enjoyed seeing some political, some activism, some reality to the story, even though sometimes it felt like it was bordering on a certain tone I don’t necessarily want in my books. But I always want real and Kennedy Ryan gave me that - always gives me that.

There are not enough stars for this book....for this duet!!! I was fortunate enough to delve into this amazing world of Lennix & Maxim early on, and they have left a permanent mark on my heart and soul. The writing of K Ryan is impeccable, the story authentic and original, and the characters are inspiring and make you want to change the world!

The Rebel King was absolutely magnificent. It was suspenseful, thought-provoking, emotional, romantic, sexy, and full of passion. Words so deep and meaningful that they touch your soul and ping at your emotional fortitude.

The author took me on an epic journey with Lennix and Maxim. I loved that each character was strong and independent and fiercely battled for their convictions. I was able to grow with them as individuals and as a couple. To watch and feel that so

This book was totally unnecessary. It was filled with mostly fillers sex scenes. The protagonists goes away for their works, then they come back and have sex.

Both Maxim and Lennix was boring. There was too much politics, and that made me lost my interest. Also, the plot is kind of predictable.
