Another Note: This is the Playboy Royal series. The first book is Playboy's Royal. The second and final book is Playboy's Heart. Please read in order, thanks.

Anyway let's move.

So this is the sequel to the first book, with the same characters, and storyline.

But this is the time where he has lost his princess..heh. But he will fight for her and have her again, and no one will stop him.

Once again Nana Malone had me on the edge. I was desperately awaiting this book after the way she ended book one of this duet. She kills me with the cliffhangers. And as usual, she delivered what I was hoping for plus some.

While I still don't think I can pick between Xander and Lex, I definitely loved the conclusion to Xander's story just as much. His and Imani's romance was so beautiful. And of course there was the intrigue and suspense in the story that kept the pages turning as well.

Playboy's heart started with some serious action and ended with a what adventure awaits us now with these crazy group of royals.

Xander and Imani's love story is filled with such intensity, they are so hot and heavy that you need a glass of water in between chapters. What captivates you the most is their own personal journey of discovery of how strong they are once they were able to fight their demons.

I do wish that Nana would have written on when Imani got pre

Xander has done what he never wanted - hurt his beautiful Imani and pushed her away. So now it's up to him to figure out how to fix himself and how to fix things so he can get her back. The question is: how? He'll need to take a good long look at himself first and go from there.

Woo boy but this one was a doozy! Not so much physically, but emotionally and mentally. Xander was soooo messed up and didn't know how to fix things. And Imani just did her thing and didn't wait for him to hurt he

Playboy's Heart
By: Nana Malone

*REVIEW* ☆☆☆☆
Playboy's Heart is the second book of a duet, and it is not meant to read as a standalone. This story is about Xander and Imani and, in particular, things from the past that were traumatic and haunting still. Both have issues and baggage, but the question is whether or not they can learn to love and trust each other

Amazing story! Xander and Imani have both met their match in one another. They are both very strong characters, very fierce. Compared to the first book, this one went more in depth with their feelings and thoughts. We got more insights to both of their pasts and what's driving them now. I honestly admired Imani's patience with Xander and his mood swings. Not that they are not justified, because Xander is finally getting the revenge he has been working forward for a long time. And he is such an a ...more

I really enjoyed Xander & Imani’s conclusion.

He’s such an alpha male.

She’s such an independent, self sufficient woman.

I really loved their dynamic. And I loved when they go into past hurts.

If you’re looking for a smoking hot read with unexpected depth with a couple of very serious topics thrown in, great character development and awesome dialogue... I highly recommend this book!

Playboy's Heart is the emotional, thrilling, and steamy conclusion to the Playboy Royal duet. It picks up at the event that made my heart stop at the end of the first book! Xander is finally happy that he is able to step up and help his brother Lex. Xander has so much guilt and pain stemming from his and Lex's childhood. He has built up strong walls to keep from feeling again and lives for revenge. He needs control over all things and that is a huge hurtle for he and Imani to overcome. She has a ...more

Whether by blood or by heart, there's no emotion more powerful than love. Malone manages to drive that point home with the ultimate double team. Playboy's Heart gives voice to love's power with family devotion and the temptation of romance. Xander is the heartache that I never saw coming, yet couldn't seem to put down. Two brothers could have never seemed more different, Lex was a man of action. He was in you face, before he thought things through. Xander is a quiet storm that plans ahead, befor ...more

Xander and Imani's story is beautiful, I love Nana Malone books, these series Playboy Royal are a must read. If you love royal romance stories with more than the HEA, read it. I hope for the audiobook soon as I want it to experience it all over again. The story can be read as standalone but it will have characters from other books, so read them all to enjoy it more. ...more

Ok so this story has ended...or has it? I still have questions that need to be answered. It seems like nothing is ever truly settled in the Winston Isles and London and New York...
This is one complicated family. However, that being said, the ones that are with you are loyal to a fault. So although this book has ended, is it truly the end of the series? You never know.
What I will say is questions were answered but more arose in my mind. We got to see the end of the beginning of book 1. My detecti

He has demons. Can he outrun them? Will he ever be able to live with them? Or will they conquer him?

"Vengeance is mine" was once said and that has become Xander's motto. But will it get the better of him? He has lived his life seeking revenge and when he gets it, how will he feel? Relief, elation, satisfaction ... But now that he has Imani, his conscience gets the better of him. Is vengeance worth losing the love of your life? And yet, years later, we see the same cycle occurring.

So this is book two of the Playboy Royal series and it was pretty good!
I’ve read the first one and these aren’t standalones. You have to read book one to know what’s happening in this book.

In the first book we have the story of how Imani and Xander met. Book two deals a lot with the inner demons of Xander’s childhood and Imani’s family and her past.

Xander prepares for the downfall of Alister finally and Imani has to deal with her past too. Ryan, her ex, doesn’t let up on her. He’s determined

Nana Malone has a hotline to my heart for sure. I don't how she writes the perfect romance that makes my heart race, body sing and soul owned completely every single time. Playboy's Heart is the sublime and breathtaking balance of suspense, steam and sweetness.

I don't think I loved any of her heroes like I do Xander. Oh who am I kidding? I say that every time! But I really cannot resist. Xander has that special aura that is like fire to my heart. He is arrogant, controlling and dominating. But a

This Royal Series got me hooked on Nana’s books. Knowing that they came in duets, I was looking forward to the conclusion of Xander and Imani’s story. The first book started off weird to me and had some spelling issues that had me hesitant about this book. However, Nana once again develops her characters so well that you can’t help but get so wrapped up into the story. I loved the playful banter between Xander and Imani and how they fed off each other. This book brought about the more serious pa ...more

This was a well planned out conclusion to an epic duet! This author gives us SO much in this to take in, while the duet is a stand alone it is set in the same world as a number of her other stand alones and duets, and I feel like we are nearing a culmination of sorts. Everything is woven together nice and neat and I just have a feeling someone or something is right around the corner with a sharp pair of shears lol. The author packs every minute of Xander and Imani's story full of passion and wel ...more

This book hit me with ALL the feels. Xander is much more complex than I ever thought and his journey throughout this story was so emotional.

I was completely hooked. The roller coaster of emotions this story takes you through will leave you drained. That’s how good this book is. Even though the story mostly centers on Xander, it was good to see Imani take charge and get some things settled in her life as well.

I voluntarily read and reviewed an ARC of this book.

Two broken souls, which was touched on in the first book, but holy it was so much deeper than that. Xander is such a broken lost little boy, and Imani is almost the same. Both with a tragic past, but together they heal each other. Trying to navigate this new relationship that started as a semi lie. You can't help but fall in love with them.

Hot, Hot, Hot! Imani and Xander are steaming hot! I love them as a couple. Who knew that someone could get through to Xander. Imani is perfect for him. And he ends up being perfect for her. The first part of this duet left us hanging and the second is just as intense. I loved how the two of them worked for each other and helped each other heal the pain of their pasts. While I loved the story from the past giving us Imani and Xander's story, I am so looking forward to more of the story that is ta ...more

This is Book 2 of the Playboy Royal Duet

This is the second part of the story of Xander & Imani. Xander just could not get rid of his anger from his childhood, especially with his almost brother, Alistair. Xander is in a very dark place. He likes to fix things for himself on his own and he determined to fix things for Imani without giving her choices or fixing things on her own. This is a whirlwind of a story, to say the least. Many things, good and bad, happen. It is a great ending to a royal st

Xander and Imani. I was on pins and needles to see how their story ended. The first book starts out in present day. Xander has taken on the responsibility to succeed his mom on the throne. Just a few minutes later he and pregnant wife, Imani are headed home and there are gunshots. Imani is shot. The rest of book 1 and most of book 2 goes back to the time they met, their story of how they became a couple. They are both broken. Xander lost his dad at a young age and when his mother became engaged ...more

This is part two of Xander and Imani's duet and it did not disappoint. Their pasts have formed the people they are today. It was great to see Xander begin to open up for Imani, but will their love be enough to slay his demons?
Nana Malone has a way of writing characters that you connect with and have a vested interest in their HEA's even as she slowly teases us there. The cameo from Team Winston Isles made my heart happy.

They say revenge is sweet but is it? Xander has spent many years plotting his revenge but after Imani came into his life his priorities changed.

This is a very well written and entertaining story which I thoroughly enjoyed.
