Hollywood Prince by Kim Karr
Publication Date: January 2nd, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Brooklyn James should know better.
Born into Hollywood royalty, the brooding prince has a reputation as being a player. A manwhore. A womanizer.
Adoring fans are his thing.
His best friend’s little sister is not.
Even thinking about her the way he is isn’t cool.
Not cool at all.
And yet every time she pouts those sexy lips at him, she turns him inside out. Makes him harder than he’s ever been. Drives him to the brink of insanity.
Amelia Waters has always idolized her big brother, and the last thing she wants to do is disappoint him.
Falling for her brother’s ex-roommate is off-limits.
She knows this, but she can’t help herself.
The way Brooklyn looks at her with those smoldering blue eyes makes her wet in an instant. Turns her into a shivering, shaking mess of sexual frustration. And soon the idea of spreading her legs for him is the only thing she can think about.
She wants him.
He wants her.
When they finally decide to give in to their insane attraction, they agree it will remain between them. That their illicit affair will be short-term. No strings. No baggage. No messy ending.
But when the first night of mind-blowing sex leads to another, and another still, how long can the endless hookups go on before Amelia’s brother finds out? Or worse yet, before feelings develop?
Brooklyn and Amelia know they need to walk away from each other before either of those things happens.
The problem is doing it.
Talk about a mess.
Hollywood Prince is a sexy, standalone, contemporary romance about a bad boy and the off-limits girl who steals his heart.
3.5 of 5 Stars
A Hollywood Prince with a tarnished crown.
There is not a better sentence that describes one of the main characters, Brooklyn. He is Hollywood royalty and if you have read the previous 2 books No Pants Required & Bedwrecker , you probably got to know him. Yes, I know! It’s a standalone…..blah, blah, blah. I disagree. Can you read it as a standalone? Yes………. SHOULD you? NOPE………. Why? Let me tell you something, you won’t get half the book, with the nuisances of both characters and the supporting characters if you have never heard about them. Is it doable? Absolutely. But, do yourself a favor, Just DON’T……..Yes, went on a tangent……………
Anyway, Brooklyn’s character is incredibly likable. A “bad boy” trying to make his mark in the world, and get out of his parents shadow. I liked Brooklyn. I got him. I found him sexy, and the picture on the cover doesn’t hurt. LOL
Amelia is the cute princess her family tried to protect. I liked Amelia. I kind of sorta understood her “quest”, if I may. I understood her heart. My main issue with Amelia(and I don’t know if this was intentional), and the main issue that I had with the previous 2 books, is the dialogue. It just sounds too juvenile. It didn’t make it seem plausible and I had a really hard time wrapping my brain around a late 20 something speaking in this way. Now, in order to completely contradict myself, and get people stirred up, I will say, I felt Hollywood Prince was written a bit better, had a bit more substance.
The storyline was cute. I could feel Amelia’s frustration with her family’s over protectiveness with her. I could feel her wanting to spread her wings and figure life out, outside of her past and what her family expected of her. Brooklyn was easy to get. The bad boy wanting to make something of himself, but being lost post college. I think at times, the story lent itself to being too cutesie and because it wasn’t constant, I still gave it the 3 stars, as opposed to the full 4. Now, that being said, the “sexy” scenes were written incredibly well. Raw, natural and you could not help both feel the chemistry between Amelia and Brooklyn. Their chemistry alone made me rethink my 3 star rating to a 3.5. I thought all in all, the book was enjoyable and the parts that were a bit too much, we easy to overcome. The characters and Laguna beach imagery, make it easy to overcome the at times simplistic dialogue.
