Overview

Cheeky King by Nana Malone

What good is a King without his Queen? Sebastian... I never wanted the crown, but now it's mine. Instead of my freedom–instead of her. But even though she's not mine to keep, I can't seem to stay away. Penny... The moment he became king, I knew we were over. Now I've returned home some kind of conquering hero. If only they all knew that we'd both lost our hearts. If only I could stay out of the royal bed. What good is being cocky if you can't get what you want?

Cheeky King begins where Cheeky Royal left off when Sebastian learns that he doesn’t really know the woman he has fallen in love with. After the death of his father he has returned home to Winston Isles to assume his duty. Questions arise about his father’s death and Sebastian must determine who he can trust and who is trying to harm him and the only thing he really knows is that he misses Penny. Penny has returned to the life she had before she is uncertain about what she wants from the future and the only things she knows is that she and Sebastian can’t be together and dealing with that loss is unbearable. Is this the fairy tale where Penny is forever destined to be without her King? What an amazing conclusion to the duet. The emotional pull as well as the suspense leaves you wondering what could possibly happen next and the only thing you do know is that Penny and Sebastian belong together. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

If you think that the cliffhanger conclusion to Cheeky Royal was heart stopping and you want more right away, Cheeky King will not disappoint you at all. After the big reveal Sebastian and Penny must face the consequences of the lies, their love, and the half truths that they shared. As the love hate relationship between Sebastian and Penny intensifies, things will get complicated and extremely interesting. Trying to deal with his new role, Sebastian finds that he has a lot of power, that power is desired badly enough to kill. He will use his power to untangle the web of secrets that surround the palace and be able to get the thing he desires the must, Penny. As a member of the Royal guard Penny will have to protect the king with her life, even if she sometimes would want to kill him herself. She is the only one that truly knows and understand him as Sebastian and as King, but that will cost her deeply. This wonderful story includes new and returning amazing characters that we would love to know more of. Nana does it again!! Great story filled with conspiracies, secrets, love, surprising and unexpected events, and lots of passion.

Loved the conclusion to the Royals Undercover series. The story of Penny and Sebastian had me hooked. It was equal parts fun, steam and exasperation. More than once I would have liked someone to smack Sebastian upside his large royal noggin but in the end they get the HEA they deserve.

It's been a long time coming. Cheeky Prince issued an invitation, Cheeky Royal set the stage and Cheeky King is the final chapter of the diary of Sebastian and Penny's forbidden romance. Nana Malone has created an adventurous tale of dangerous treachery, heartbreaking loss and undying love. The life of a Prince is never ordinary, but in Sebastian's case can prove deadly on so many levels. I don't say this often, but the Royals Undercover series, should really be read completely and in order. There were many red herrings on display in Cheeky Royal and Cheeky King finally reveals all. Their's was a romance years in the making, but the King finally gets his Queen.

the final book to the series. I thought the last book was full of action, suspense, and intrigue, but this one was truly amped up. This book has Sebastian and Penny at odds. There are still secrets to be revealed, mysteries to be resolved, questions to be answered, and scoundrels to be dealt with in a royal manner. The two things that really bothered me was that Sebastian was a consistent a$$ for a while, and Penny kept refusing to communicate with people. Thank goodness for Ariel, Roone, and Lucas. I wonder if they will each ends up with their own book. The pace is fast, the loose ends are tied up, and the HEA is pretty awesome.

Sebastian learned the truth about Penny the hard way. Not only that, his father died and he's now the King. Penny is now treated like a hero. She saved the king's life in New York. But she can't put her feelings for Sebastian aside. Can Sebastian forgive Penny? Can they find a way to be together? Cheeky King is the perfect ending to Penny and Sebastian's story. Full of drama, angst, action, sexy scenes, and funny moments, this book took me in a rollercoaster of emotions. I loved every page of Penny and Sebastian's forbidden romance story. Penny is a sweet but fierce young woman. She's an artist at heart but became a Royal Guard like her parents and her brother. She changed a lot due to her heartbreak, also showing a more vulnerable side. Sebastian also changed a lot. He's angry with Penny, with his father and with himself. But he's also heartbroken and grieving. He made me swoon a lot but he also made me curse him too. Nana Malone did a terrific job with Penny and Sebastian's story and Cheeky King is the perfect ending to their story. If you want drama, angst, laughter, action, and sexy scenes, this book is for you. I really hope we get to read Ariel's, Lucas's and Roone's stories.

Suspense, enchantment, and devotion infuse the pages in this spectacularly royal love story! Cheeky King was everything I wanted and more for the conclusion to Sebastian and Penny’s story! The storyline is so intriguing with its mysterious who-done-it and the yearning for a HEA. The intricate storytelling designs the author exhibits in this book is beyond fantastic; the woven narrative between duty and love, between betrayal and forgiveness, and between sabotage and loyalty gives the book a climactic feel that leaves readers on the edge of their seats. And the unstoppable love that saturates the story makes this book an irresistible must-read! After reading this book, I STILL WANT MORE!!! A complete royal wedding novella, a royal honeymoon novella, a royal baby novella, a royal life novella, and more royal baby novellas….that’s not too much to ask for, is it?? *wink* I could not put this book down! Cheeky Royal and Cheeky King both delve into the lives and hearts of what it means to be royal. It showcases the true burdens and sacrifices people make for the greater good. And it enhances the emotional connections people share when they see beyond the look of a person, but to the character they are underneath all the glamour. 5 Magnificent Stars!

What a wonderful conclusion to the Royals Undercover series. Cheeky King picks up where Cheeky Royal left off. Poor Sebastian is heartbroken at the sudden loss of his father before they could completely resolve their issues. The one person who he desperately wants to turn to for comfort has known his true identity all along, and he feels completely betrayed and alone. Sebastian and Penny return home to their new and different lives and responsibilities. There are so many questions that need to be answered. Ms. Malone unravels the answers expertly adding in several plot twists that keep you guessing. The fiery chemistry between Sebastian and Penny is hotter than ever. They are both heartbroken and lost without the other, chained to their stations in life. I did want to slap Sebastian several times feeling like his character deviated from who he was in New York. But he came through and was as swoony as ever. There was still the wonderful humour that Ms Malone does so well along with intrigue and emotion that kept me totally engaged. I love a great grand gesture and the ending was so very satisfying. This is a wonderful conclusion to this series but I hope to see more of all of theses Cheeky Royals!

So, Book 1 - Cheeky Royal - ends with all the secrets coming out in one OMG scene. But wait, there's so much more! Cheeky King goes so much deeper into the history of the Winston Isles and Sebastian's family than I was expecting. Everything he thought in the first book was completely turned on its head, and it's no wonder that he's operating from an entirely different emotional plane in the second. Penny, too, seems to have found herself down the rabbit-hole, where nothing is as it was in NYC, nor is it what it was before she left home. Their romance has taken a seat so far in the back that it's not even on the same bus! But, their explosive chemistry didn't go anywhere, leaving these two without any hope for a future but no chance of walking away, either. The suspense is nail-biting, on several different fronts. Sebastian has to deal with the death of his father and its aftermath, plus he has to take on the leadership for his country, then there's the issue of succession rights, how Lucas fits in to it all, which friends he can really count on, and so forth. It's enough to make one's head spin, and it's done so beautifully that the reader can really feel Sebastian's frustration and exhaustion. Then there's the matter of Penny - the one problem that Sebastian has no clue how to solve. For her part, Penny knows that her time in NYC changed her in ways that she can't come back from, but she honestly has no idea where to go from here. She's left adrift to figure things out for herself, at least when Sebastian isn't kissing her senseless, which only leaves her with more questions that have impossible answers. By the time we come full circle to the gallery opening that was the impetus for the events in NYC in the beginning, all our questions are answered and all the secrets are revealed. It's an amazing journey from start to finish, and it makes me wish there really was a Winston Isles nation that I could visit. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

Wow. Just wow. I mean wow. Who would have guessed? Amazing story telling Ms. Malone. Definitely a different twist from your typical books and I loved it. I'm really hoping we see more from the Royals of Winston Isle.

A great conclusion to Sebastian and Penny's story. In addition to romance, Cheeky King gives us a bit of suspense and intrigue as those loyal to the crown look for a traitor in their midst. I will say that the mystery wasn't hard to solve, at least in part, but that didn't diminish the story for me. Sebastian and Penny make such a great couple, and I found myself rooting for them even when they had me completely exasperated with their back and forth. The thing about that back and forth is it is somewhat understandable. Both of them are kind of right about what put them at odds, but they're both kind of wrong too. So, even though they frustrated me to no end, the story was an engaging read and this pair is so much fun to root for.

Cheeky King picks up right where Cheeky Royal left off, and you'll definitely want to read this in order (and I'd even recommend reading Cheeky Prince as well - gives you a little more insight into Sebastian). In Cheeky King, Sebastian is dealing with the sudden death of his father, leaving him to be King, and feeling betrayed by Len (Penny). Even though he, too, was withholding the truth, he has a difficult time forgiving her and believing that her feelings were sincere. There are plenty of ups and downs in this story as they both struggle to deal with their feelings and situation. For Penny, even if Sebastian DID want to be with her, she is a commoner and the law prevents it. What's a girl to do? Deal with it until she can't deal anymore and then... Sebastian is dealing with the death of his father, but also the suspicion that he was in fact murdered. There is danger, intrigue, plenty of emotions and that never-ending chemistry between Sebastian and Penny that leaves me wanting them to get their HEA. Once I started reading I didn't want to put the book down and in fact read WELL into the night when I really needed to be sleeping...let's say it was a long day at work today. As with Cheeky Royal, I enjoyed how the Blake Security men took a role in this story as well. I've read many of Nana Malone's books and I've enjoyed them all. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next!!

This book series is so good. I just loved every bit of it. Cheeky King was just as good as, if not better than, the first book. I adore all the characters in these books and hope that Mrs. Malone decides to write some more books to tell their stories too, especially Lucas and Ariel’s. In Cheeky King Sebastian and Penny return home to become the people they never expected to be. Sebastian fought so hard to escape his fate before but now he finally realizes that maybe there is no one better to take the throne than him. That no one will love his country and take care of it’s people as well as his father, except for him. Penny has never been seen as anything but the “screw up” by a lot of fellow guard members but now that’s all changed. When news of what happened on Penny’s mission gets spread around the others start to look at her and treat her differently. It’s a very unfamiliar and almost awkward feeling to Penny and takes a lot of getting use to. The relationship between Penny and Sebastian is strained. The two have a lot to talk about and work out but both are so stubborn. Neither one of them willing to be the one to step forward and initiate the conversation. Before they know it danger is knocking at the door again. Will they be able to apprehend the bad guys, have their long awaited heart to heart and find a way to be together? Or will this be the end for them?

Glad that I didn't have to wait long for the conclusion to this story. Cheeky King takes place immediately after Cheeky Royal concludes, and you get more of Penny and Sebastian. Penny is absolutely awesome in this book, and doesn't let Sebastian, her parents, brother, horrid ex-boyfriend, or anyone else walk all over her. Well, at least not for long. Sebastian, however, is a bit of a jerk in this book. He's accepted his new role, and is clearly conflicted about Penny. In his own messed up mind, he blames her, and treats her horribly until he realizes he's ready to lose everything. Nana doesn't leave things unresolved. There's a bit of intrigue and a plot line that I didn't see coming but really enjoyed!! No spoilers! You'll just have to read for yourself. Loved this series, and can't wait for others to get this one and enjoy. *An early copy was made available by the author for review*

I was worried.  I wasn't sure that this would stand up to the first book in the duet.  I was concerned that an easy, formulaic conclusion would be provided.  I am exceptionally relieved to report that the author didn't let me down. This book easily matches the first for its involving, character drive storyline.  And whilst we all know that this is, after all, pure fiction; I couldn't help but get caught up in it. This was absolutely the ending that this couple deserved. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

Sebastian is now King and can not have what he wants most--Penny. This story has some serious twist and surprises around the corner. I enjoyed reading about the situations they were in and how it would work out. Sabastian and Penny went through a lot to be together, including themselves. I was really happy with the ending and enjoyed the other Cheeky book as well.

Penny and Sebastian made me love them! That couple went through so much and you never knew are they or aren’t they. That’s the good thing about Nana Malone. She weaves a story that you want to see through to the end. Readers have to know what is going to happen. After reading Cheeky Prince, you can’t imagine that there would be this much still to go on. This book has twists and turns and surprises galore. I am praying that we get a few more Winston Isle books because I am hooked. Once I am hooked, I am like a dog with a bone. I want to know about everybody. Nana does that to me every time. This is reminiscent of the Blake Security Series. A lot of surprises with thrilling action and quite a bit of sexiness. Nana definitely has that recipe down to a science.
