Falcon: Three years ago I arrived at the scene of an art heist to find Kingston Wilde tied to a radiator, claiming to be an innocent bystander in the wrong place at the wrong time. It was only later I learned he was actually, the elusive art thief I’d been tracking for years. And I was the one who’d let him sweet-talk his way out of my grasp. Ever since, I’ve made it my mi ...more

Oh, WOW, this story is so much fun. Part art heist, part sexy romance, King Me is a Wilde *ahem* ride from beginning to end.

King never planned on being the most famous art thief in the world, but he was lured by an older man who promised him the world. Isn't that always how the story goes? Unfortunately, King's savior turned out to be a double-crossing, greedy bastard. Thank god FBI agent Dirk Falcon falls for King's innocent blue eyes.

Oh this was fun! Lennox made a great choice in writing a heist romance next, something so different from the previous book in the series. The heart of the story takes place over a pretty short love, but Falcon and King have met before and been enemies for years so know of each other at least. And, one of my catnips, competence porn!

Some of the Wilde family make an appearance but this one is set apart geographically, which is also a great choice.

Each time I read a book in this series, I think Lucy has outdone herself and then the next one comes along and it's just as good but in a totally different way.

This is a heist romance along the lines of Ocean's Eleven/Twelve where the agent and the thief have a history which complicates matters and brings a delicious tension to the narrative.

It's funny, fast paced and packed with wonderful historical nods and a love for art history which I totally appreciated.

Enemies to lovers ! Once more, we get action, hot lovin’ and fabulous characters. I have loved the Wilde and Marian series. Now we have Dirk Falcon, @40, FBI,

on the global task force. He’s tall, lean, with gray-green eyes and salt n’ pepper beard scruff, and he’s gorgeous.
King is our Wilde man. King Wilde, a beautiful man,

28, dirty blonde, longer hair, plus he’s an art thief, the famous Le Chaton, the cat.

The big prize is the Hungarian Crown.

I actually enjoyed this thriller/heist read. So thank you Keren for persuading me to keep it on my Tbr.
It was my non-knowledge of the Art World that had originally put me slightly off - I would struggle with identifying a Picasso from a Constable 😂.
So you can see my dilemma, right?
But my lack of knowledge did not hold back the storyline at all. If anything, I enjoyed Googling various art pieces mentioned in the book - Lucy Lennox has turned me into a nerd 😳.

4 Stars!! 💕💕 Loved it!! 😍. This is LL's first "thriller-heist" kinda book.. and it was "fun-tastic"!! 😁🤩. For those who love "Ocean's 11", "Thomas Crown Affair" or Entrapment"; this will be a nice treat, since it has a famous Art Thief "Le Cheton" 😳(Kingston Wilde) and the guy who's trying to catch him for many years, FBI agent Dirk Falcon. 😎. With a little bit of sizzling steamy sex thrown in and some twists, turns and one-upping; this book is quite the "Art-Heist-Thriller-M/M" 💖👑

Another Wilde ride

This story is so different from the rest of the series and I loved it.
Kingston Wilde is an art thief that has been on the radar of the FBI. Agent Falcon and his team have been trying to nail him for 5 years. When an important piece is stolen the FBI has no choice but to ask Kingston for his help.
Before this book, Kingston Wilde was basically a complete mystery. What the Wilde family knew about him is what we knew about him, and what we knew was completely off base - because King has been lying to his family for years.

He isn't a part of the CIA or anything like that - he's actually a notorious art thief, and has been for the last five years...but now, he's hanging up his hat, so to speak, and is ready to come home.

But first, there's Dirk Falcon and a little thing called the FBI to deal
4.5 stars.

This book was so much fun. Lucy sure knows how to write a book filled with the right amount of humor, action, and some very sexy moments. It was a Wilde (see what I did there? Lol) ride from the first to the last page.

I've been wanting to read King's book for the longest time. And him, Falcon and the rest of the clan did not disappoint. I'm not going to go too much into the plot because it's something you need to read to enjoy. So do that. And enjoy 😉

Oh man, I loved this. I mean LOVED IT!!

I was a little on the fence at the beginning, I mean, I had this teeny little voice whispering ’CRIMINAL’ and I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to ignore it.

Ha, but then I totally ignored it and just enjoyed the ride. And believe me, this was one Hell of a ride!

It was exciting and fun, silly and sexy. It read like a movie and I didn’t want it to end. I loved the setting, I loved the cast of characters, the adventure and so much the swe

King Me was different from other books in the series – in a really good way. I’m not an art or history lover myself – but boy did King make me interested in art – and art heists! Not to say that it’ll be my next career choice, as such, but I’d love to read more stories with them. And when you add in a sexy agent hot on your thieving heels, things are bound to get a bit sticky (pun intended).

Kingston Wilde decided on a career change a couple of years ago when his lover l
I love heist movies and well this heist novel is just as great. Of course you knew there was going to be all sorts of "we shouldn't" when you throw a thief and the FBI agent tracking him together. But of course we already knew we'd love the thief. Kingston's a Wilde. We love the Wilde's so, of course, from the start we're on King's side. I really enjoyed the introduction to King and his thievery. And his first meeting with Falcom was fun.

Of course the main part of the story starts off with King

I'm embarrassed to give this only 3 stars but that's all it was for me. And, in fact, it was nearly DNF. I just couldn't buy into the whole story. There was a good international art thief theme, complete with the task force trying to outwit the thief, and ending with the FBI agent in charge falling in love with the thief--Kingston Wilde.

I'm not sure what really kept my interest low. It may have been a combination of the outlandish, complex plot and the total OTT theme of the thief and agent fal

A heist creates all new types of tension, drama and action for the plot let alone the romance. Kingston Wilde was manipulated into the world of art theft, but after being betrayed by his mentor and lover he met Dirk Falcon FBI agent in charge of hunting down King and other art thieves.

Whilst we only had glimpses of the rambunctious Wilde family and Hobie locals, it was a marvellously paced plot, with a great FBI team ensemble cast. I did love the battle of trust for both Falcon and King, but al

Thoroughly enjoyed! Now I need to start at the beginning and read the first of this series... I know I’ll like.
3 ⭐️⭐️⭐️ 1/2 Stars! MM Romance. I liked this one a lot. I liked the plot behind this story, an art thief and the FBI agent. It was cute.

Lucy said in her closing letter she wanted to challenge herself and write a heist novel hoping she wouldn't lose sight of romance.
She pulled it off magnificently. I think this was my favorite novel so far and I absolutely loved each and every one of them in both series..
Edge of you seat angst at every turn.

4 stars.

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

King Me is the seventh book in Lucy Lennox’s wonderful Forever Wilde series and this is one of my favorites so far. The story combines a really lovely, sexy romance with an engaging heist caper and Lennox does a great job balancing the two elements. This book works especially well coming on the heels of Wilde Love, a reader favorite and a big emotional story that really has its roots in Hobie and the Wilde family. So I think this story is a perfect transition book

Oh, but I had so much fun reading this one. Was it the least bit realistic? Probably not, and there are a bunch of things I could point out as contentious. Did I love it anyway? Hell yes. Of course, I might be coming from a place of bias; King has been my favorite Wilde, after all, ever since he appeared in like one scene back in Facing West. But I just adore that art thief.

Dirk was great. I loved the contrast between the gruff and grumpy agent and the dominant but sweet and soft lover he uncons

Kingston Wilde is at a point in his life where he’s got to make some tough decisions. After being wronged by someone who should have his back, he’s at a crossroads where Agent Dirk Falcon is waiting with a pretty hefty proposition. What follows is a roller-coaster of a ride with some high stakes shenanigans that’ll have you flying by the seat of your pants. This story is a slick and hot crime caper and none of the players are nobody’s fool. I could picture this story on the big screen as it’s go ...more

I love caper novels, especially ones with romance, and Lucy Lennox nails this one. Sure, you have to suspend disbelief, but if you can't do that already, then maybe you should be reading a different genre.
The long-awaited story of Kingston Wilde does not disappoint. It's got action, intrigue, and just enough of the Wilde family to be comforting without being overwhelming.

Lucy Lennox's King Me (Forever Wilde #7/KU) was BRILLIANT. I could not put it down. This is a frenemies to lovers, mystery/suspense/romance that had me on the edge of my seat the entire time!!

4.25 stars -- What a fantastic addition to this series! King and Falcon are utterly delicious together -- it's as if White Collar had been an MM show! (Mmmm, Matt Bomer...) And I loved the interactions with the rest of the team -- Ziv finally making a connection with King, Linney's humor, and Mouse -- I love how his nickname is never overtly explained, but just one tiny sly mention in passing, and the "puke nest" ready for after the dinner with Elek -- so adorable!

Fantastic heist romance

I thought I loved the idea of King Wilde as a tired, worn out spy. Turns out King Wilde as an internationally renowned art thief is even better! This was a fantastic heist romance and a wonderful addition to the Wilde Love series. Can't wait for the next one!
