What a man... What a man... What a mighty good man." Salt & Peppa Journey King has been through a lot lately. (See Kings #1) As acting head of Kingdom Corp., in the absence of her mother. Journey now finds herself on the frontline of a new fight. Against an old foe. Her father. Elliott Bancroft has it all. He is rich, poised, charming, and... A monster! And with his wife no longer acting as head of the company she founded. He and those who aid him; are out for blood. At any cost. Just when you thought that the scheming, plotting, and backbiting of the King empire couldn't get any more devious. Along comes book two in the series. And this time it's more personal than ever. Enter Frank Evans... Frank is known among the King's as a man who can get things done. As well as one of the few people that can be trusted to keep secrets. As we found out in a big way via book one. But what we didn't know was that Journey and Frank have an attraction. So it brooks no question that when things go south for our leading lady. Her knight of choice is one of the darker persuasion. Pun intended... Journey and Frank's story is a great deal more intense than that of Beckett and Samara. This is due to the fact that the horrors of their respective pasts loom very large on the horizon of their futures. And have the very real possibility of destroying everything and everyone that they hold dear. For Journey... Her father has always been a very real danger to both her and her siblings. Abusing them all both physically and mentally for a large part of their childhoods. For Frank... The mere fact that he is a black man of power and means in the heart of the "good ole boy" network that is Texas. Should be enough. But no... He is still reeling from both the wrongful conviction of his father for murder. And his subsequent murder in prison. And the way in which said murder contributed to his mother's death from cancer. Because the pain of their pasts rides so close to the surface. The need to protect that they bring out in each other makes the back and forth fight for control that Beckett and Samara had to give voice to completely unnecessary. It was just a given. No matter the situation. And speaking of situations... There are so many. That involve so many other people. And do far more than sex ever could to draw these two together. Not that the sex isn't AWESOME! It is... The sex in Journey and Frank's story is also a great deal more raw. Mirroring their psyches and general states of being. And the fact that it comes with just the right amount of ph-so-alpha S&M. Ohhhhhh yeah! In short. This story is about the coming together of two knights working together to slay some very REAL dragons. Both in business and in life.

This is a captivating read that had me hooked from the beginning. I did not read the first book in the series and did not feel I missed a beat in this dysfunctional family. Journey King is running this business and doing a splendid job until her father decides to come back and try to take over. Yea, not if she has any say over it. Journey turns to the only person she can think of, Frank Evans. He is the only one who can dig up enough dirt to keep her father out of the business and it is going to take a lot of dirt and the dirtier the better. Will Frank and Journey be able to work together and keep it business or will it become more? Oh, this one was so good! I definitely recommend it! **Received this ARC from the publisher for review via NetGalley**

This is the second book of The King’s series and it is the story of Journey King. Journey has lived a nightmare and is coming out the other side. Until that nightmare reappears and everything she thought about herself is in question. Frank Evans has watched Journey for years. He is closely connected to the other side of the family through his friendship with Beckett King and he is faithful to that friendship. But Journey brings out something in his soul and she needs his help. I love the characters that Ms. Robert writes. They are always human, with flaws and weaknesses but the redemptive qualities are there, too. I can’t wait to continue this series.

The Fearless King is definitely not what I thought it would be. It was better. I jumped into this series with this book and I have no regrets. (I need to go back and read book one though!) Journey is the kind of woman I want to grow up to be. She is strong, smart, and when she gets out of her own head, a force to be reckoned with. Now, Frank on the other hand.... Frank is devilishly handsome, cunning, and a master planner. He is everything sexy about this book. The chemistry they have is delicious. Not gonna lie, I would totally take Frank home if my hubs weren't in the picture. Protective, supportive, and sexy- that's the stuff dreams are made of. Enjoy The Fearless King because I have a feeling you may just fall for them all.

The Fearless King is book two in The Kings series by Katee Robert. This novel is a contemporary romance with a suspense twist. Journey King is shareholder and COO of her family’s business, Kingdom Corp. She’s been doing everything she can to avoid Frank Evans and any appearance of impropriety. Surprisingly, Journey finds herself in need of Frank’s assistance when her estranged father makes an unexpected attempt to take over the company she and her siblings have worked hard to make profitable. Frank Evans is a club owner and real estate mogul. He has made it his business to avoid the King family, with the exception of his best friend and Journey’s cousin, Beckett. Frank finds himself inexplicably drawn to Journey’s unusually vulnerable demeanor and agrees to help her retain her business. The two aren’t enemies but they certainly aren’t friends. When circumstances force them into close contact with each other, sparks ignite and threaten to consume them both. Robert has done a fair job of making the novel a standalone, but there are instances when additional background details would have made the storyline clearer. Despite the lack of background, the characters are fully developed and interesting. I liked the cunning manner the author used to introduce the touchy subject of the interracial relationship between Frank and Journey. The ending was perfect for the continuation of the series. The Fearless King is an entertaining read and I give it 5 out of 5 stars. Fans of romantic suspense will enjoy this book. The explicit sex scenes may be a turnoff for some readers. My thanks to Forever (Grand Central Publishing) and NetGalley for the opportunity to read an advance copy of this book. However, the opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine and mine alone.

Every single Katee Robert must be devoured in one sitting! I love fake boyfriend troupes and this is my favorite one yet. Journey King doesn't let her defenses down, but around Frank Evans she's willing to accept the help if it means defeating her father. A wonderful addition to the King series that'll keep you on your toes!

THE FEARLESS KING is the second instalment in Katee Robert’s contemporary, adult THE KINGS erotic, romance series focusing on the King siblings and cousins. This is business owner and security expert Frank Evans, and Journey King’s story line. THE FEARLESS KING can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous instalment is revealed where necessary. Journey and Frank were first introduced in book one The Last King. Told from several third person points of view including Journey and Frank THE FEARLESS KING picks up in the aftermath of Lydia King’s removal as CEO from the Kingdom Corp (The Last King), a position now eyed by her estranged husband Elliott Bancroft, a man despised by family and friends. Journey King, along with her brothers, Anderson and Bellamy, are making headway keeping King Corp running smoothly and efficiently until the arrival of Elliott Bancroft whose shares in the family owned business threatened the livelihood of the everyone involved, including our story line heroine. Desperate for help, Journey approaches fellow businessman and security specialist Frank Evans, in order to take down the man who wants to destroy them all. What ensues is the building relationship and romance between Journey and Frank, and the potential fall-out as desperation and madness push Elliott Bancroft over the edge in his attempt to secure power and more. There is a dark and dangerous history between the King / Bancroft siblings and their father Elliott Bancroft, a history that threatens to crush our story line heroine but when Frank Evans becomes the target of her father’s wrath, Journey makes up her mind to take back everything she has lost including her self-esteem, pride and honor. Elliot Bancroft is nothing short of a monster, a monster who continues to taunt and prey on the children he is supposed to love. The relationship between Journey and Frank is an enemies to lovers; a relationship predicated on a lie, meant to deflect the truth, and the real intent of our couple’s time together. One time frenemies in business, Frank and Journey must work together in order to take own Elliott Bancroft. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. We are reintroduced to the King siblings including new CEO Anderson King, Bellamy King, and model Eliza King; Elliott Bancroft, and his mother (the siblings grandmother) Esther Bancroft; Frank’s security team, former Green Beret Mateo, Ethan and Jose, as well as the return of Beckett King and Samara Mallick (The Last King #1). The world building continues to focus on the fractured family dynamics of the King family, a dynasty of power hungry, spoiled rich heirs who don’t care who or what they destroy in the process of battling for control of the ultimate prize. THE FEARLESS KING is a story of family, betrayal, vengeance and love. The premise is inviting and sensitive; the characters are sassy and spirited; the romance is provocative and seductive. THE FEARLESS KING is an intense and dramatic tale.

4 1/2 STARS! Heart-pounding intrigue! I didn't know if it was possible for Katee Robert to match the raw potency of her The O'Malleys series, but she's blowing me away once again with The Kings. Beckett's story grabbed my heart in Book One and now she's back with a powerful follow-up that has Journey reaching out to the one man she never thought she'd go to for help ... and it's delicious! Intense emotion and danger around every corner, characters that keep you on your toes keeping up with them, and top-notch heat and suspense. I think the backstory from Book One could have been woven in a little stronger in order to make it a true stand-alone for those who pick it up here, but overall a really phenomenal read to kick off this gal's 2019! Journey King is a cool cucumber when it comes to getting things done in the business world, but the one person who can bring her to her knees in defeat has returned to Houston intent on making a play on the company. She knows Frank should be an enemy of sorts since he was instrumental in getting her mother ousted from the company, but he's is a powerful man and possible the only one that can put a stop to the train wreck her father intends to unravel. Frank Evans knows the rival side of the King family opposite his best friend Beckett should be off-limits now that things have settled down, but he can tell there's something to the fact that Journey is seeking him out. The fear in her eyes isn't normal, and he can't turn his back on that in the end. His pretending to be her boyfriend is the easiest way to get him close to Kingdom Corp and her family, but along the way the fake starts to feel all too real when the danger starts to overwhelm them!

I have been waiting for this book and I was so excited to start it! Both main characters are so intriguing, and as a couple they were dynamite! Journey King is hanging on by a thread. She's COO of a major oil company in Houston, TX, run by her family. But, her mom was run out of town by her estranged cousin after Lydia did something truly horrific, and now Journey and her siblings are on their own. At least until her own personal nightmare comes home to roost. Her father, Elliott Bancroft has returned to Houston and is making a power play for the King's company. But, what everyone else in the world doesn't know is how Elliott physically and emotional tortured and abused his children for years, until their mother found out about it and forced him out of town. Ever since, Elliott has been Journey and her siblings' personal boogeyman, always in her nightmares. Now her worst fears are coming true, and she has no idea how to stop it. Frank Evans deals in real estate, but also in information. When he helped his best friend, Beckett King, take down his crazy evil aunt Lydia, he had no idea how his path would intertwine with Beckett's cousin, Journey. Frank grew up privileged, until his father went to prison for a crime he didn't commit, and died there, and his mother basically died along with him. He's been on his own a long time, and only keeps a close circle of his "strays" around him. People he's helped out, or given a second chance in life, who now work for him, and are loyal to him. When Journey asks for his help, he decides it's worth the risk of angering the Bancroft family to help her, but he doesn't expect their white hot attraction to completely change his life. Frank and Journey have been dancing around each other since book 1, and their connection was palpable, and jumped right off the page. Their physical chemistry was red hot, but their personalities, quirks, and broken pieces seemed to fit together too. It was quite the whirlwind watching them figure their way toward being together, and making their relationship work in the world they lived in. Journey didn't need a champion, she just needed the confidence Frank's consistent backup gave her, to be her own champion. Frank didn't need to fix Journey's rough edges, he needed to make her understand he accepted her as she was, just as she did for him. Journey's siblings and their family dynamic was quite interesting. It seems the 4 of them broke into pairs at some point and became closer to only that one sibling, as opposed to the group as a whole. I'm sure it was part of a coping mechanism from their abuse, but I think what happens to her sister Eliza in the story, serves to help them see the distance between them, and begin to close the gap. Both their parents are complete psychos, and they are all each other has left for family. I also would've liked to see some interaction and acceptance from Journey towards her cousin Beckett. Perhaps we'll see that if there are future books. My only issue with this story was that I wanted more. I wish we'd had a little more closure to everything, as I felt a TON of things with the lives of the Kings were left up in the air, and I have no clue if we'll get to see more. An epilogue would have been amazing. But overall, this book was heartbreakingly authentic and honest in it's portrayal of childhood abuse and how that can carry over and manifest itself into issues in adulthood. I really hope we get to see more stories in this world.

These dysfunctional Kings really bring out all the crazy in this one. When her father returns in an attempt to take back control of the family business, Journey King knows she is going to have to take drastic measures to prevent it. Turning to Frank Evans for help may be the most drastic measure of all. It's no secret he isn't a fan of the Kings but he is the only one who could turn up enough dirt to keep her father at bay. Helping Journey isn't something Frank really wants to do but he knows that turning Journey down will be impossible for him. Posing as Journey's boyfriend Frank begins to dig. Soon he realizes that he'll do whatever it takes to keep Journey safe and happy. This is a well done book and I love these characters. Definitely a book I recommend.

In The Fearless King we get Frank and Journey's story. We met both of them in book one as side characters. There is some major family drama going on that connects both couples and many of the side characters. After Beckett forced Journey's mom to leave the state in book one, that left her and her siblings open for their father, Elliott to come back and try to take their company from them. It isn't as simple as a hostile takeover, Elliott is a monster and abused all four of his children when they were young. It's taken years for Journey to grow strong and feel like less of a victim, but all it takes is for her father to come back into her lives to take her right back to the abuse she suffered as a child. The only person she feels she can turn to is the last person she ever thought she would need. Frank has become a man of power after that no one wants to mess with. He has his own past that have molded him into this new, harder man that he has become. Journey is dangerous to him since he can't seem to stifle his fascination with her. When she comes to him for help, there is no way he can say no but not without adding a few strings to the deal. Both books 1 and 2 have that opposites attract appeal to them. Journey and Frank can't be more opposite in personality. Their chemistry was pretty off the charts. I'm a big fan of a strong Alpha character who protects and Frank is the very definition of these traits. A lot of damage was done to the King family by the time all was said and done. There is so much the author can go in the next book in the series and I think I know who the next foe will be. I can't wait to find out if I'm right.
