I thoroughly enjoyed King Of Hearts. Ms. Stevenson exposes a little known sub culture in the entertainment industry, while spinning a tale of romance. She creates a raucous, bawdy environment as outrageous as it is humorous.
I highly recommend it.

I opened it, scanned the first page, and read the whole book through in one

I really enjoyed this book, it was bloody hilarious. I loved the war of wills between King Dave and Nadine, their love/hate relationship was brilliant...lol. The things they did to each other was funny – but if you ask me Nadine plays a better game ... no matter what he did Nadine would get one over on him. ... this a great romantic comedy that is easy to read. Go grab a copy and see for yourself.

A Backstage Boys romantic comedy!

Stevenson dares to write her characters as they speak and act. It made it easy to picture the story as it unfolded. ... Did I mention that it was also pretty hot? ... an often hilarious journey ... never a dull moment ... King of Hearts is a must-read for a mature audience with a sense of humor and appreciation for naughty bits. five stars
Amazon - Melissa Craig
They have a love hate relationship that turns into hot and steamy one. And ohhh shall I say steamy I am sure you could see the steam coming out of my ears while reading certain scenes...King if Hearts is a great romantic quirky book that is easy to read. Can I just say if you have just read this 1st chapter and wondering if you should buy it. Go for it as it is so funny and quirky I loved it. I totally recommend this book it is a great romantic comedy and I can’t wait for the next stagehand book

The book takes place in a little known subculture (backstage Chicago), so it may not appeal to everyone. I was fascinated, and impressed, that Ms. Stevenson got the technical details of that culture right and was able to turn them into them into comedy. five stars

Jennifer Stevenson's King of Hearts saved my sanity!! I was recovering from a minor surgery that ended up a bit more complicated and painful than it was supposed to be. I hurt all the time and needed something to take me away from the pain ... I couldn't flip the pages fast enough and when I was tired, they waited for me to wake up and start to read again. ... Thank you for making my recovery a little bit easier, feel a little bit shorter, and leaving me craving more of the Stagehand stories!!

About stagehands:

King Dave says of his calling, “I wouldn’t have picked anything else. For those of us in it, it’s a noble calling. Show business doesn’t happen without us. We’re the guts, the dirty underbelly, the grease on the transmission under all the chrome and shiny headlights.”

Jennifer says about stagehands: "I love my stagehand heroes. Who wants a skinny, self-absorbed actor or rock star who wears more makeup than I do? Stagehands have more fun, more family, and in many cases they make more money. They're also stronger, hunkier, better with their hands, more chivalrous, and less worried about their hair. A stagehand can get you backstage–boy can he get you, backstage–but he can also fix your car. Stagehands are trained to have good manners by waitresses, who don't take any guff. This could be why they so often end up marrying them.
