Publisher's Summary

Move over 50 Shades, there's a new romance in town. Superstar Wendy Williams brings on the heat in her first-ever, no-holds-barred, down-and-dirty romance novel.

Kimberly Kind is trying to get beyond her roots. A successful, beautiful, smart lawyer, she's finally finding direction in her life and getting out of the streets. But a terrible accident threatens to throw her carefully laid plans off course. Now Kim's hiding a huge secret…one that could threaten everything.

Enter King. A perfect mix of Justin Timberlake and David Beckham, the man oozes sex and has more swagger than anyone Kim's ever met. Their chemistry is off the charts. But after passion-filled nights, the intensity of their emotions takes both of them by surprise.

Love was not supposed to be an option. Now it's the only thing holding them together. When their pasts come back with a vengeance, can love possibly be enough?

Didn't disappoint!

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I "read" this book on the drive to and from my vacation and I do have to say it was real treat. The story was good and the characters were funny. If you are looking for a good read without having to think to hard this is the book for you

Pleasantly surprised

I'm surprised at how good and well written the story is. The narrator was great and I was able to follow along with the story with keen interest. There were some surprises and there were times of suspense. Good job Wendy Williams.

Great

I really liked this book and would recommend this book. I wish this book was a movie or TV show. I didn't like how Kim let her problems run her mind crazy. Her friend and ex had been sexing each other before the three some. Because, of what Kim 2 was screaming. Unless that was in Kim's head. I didn't like how Ronald got away with murdering two people. I thought the ending was not that great. It could have been better.
