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.
Rating: 5 Stars!
“Two princes, but only one is meant to be mine.”
Hollywood Prince was my first Kim Karr read, and I adored it! I absolutely love a friends to lovers story, and when you throw in the “off-limits” aspect, I love it even more!
“You see, the problem with being a former Goody Two-shoes is that you never quite leave that persistent little ghost of yourself behind, no matter how supposedly chill your adult self is.”
Amelia Waters is looking for Mr. Right—her Prince Charming. She’s the girl who always does what is right and expected of her. Never wanting to disappoint her loved ones. But once she learns a shocking family secret, she leaves everything behind to travel to her brother Cam’s home in Laguna Beach looking for answers. While she’s there, she goes on a personal journey of shedding that “good girl” image and finding a little bad in her life. And, finding Mr. Oh-So-Wrong along the way.
“Everyone thought being Hollywood royalty was so glamorous. Well, it wasn’t. The Queen was never home, and the King was normally drinking himself into a stupor in some bar. That left me, the Prince, to fend for myself.”
Brooklyn James was born into Hollywood royalty—a Hollywood Prince with a tarnished crown. He’s a former reality t.v. star, now lifeguard and struggling screen writer. He’s known as a manwhore, nicknamed “pantydropper,” and someone who doesn’t do relationships. Brooklyn is also Cam’s neighbor and best friend.
“Everything about us is dangerous. The way we need to connect, the way neither of us can wait, the forbidden fruit all we can think about.”
Brooklyn knew getting involved with his best friend’s little sister was a bad idea. Afraid of jeopardizing his friendship and family. However, the spark and attraction between them was too much. They set rules and a time limit in hopes of keeping things uncomplicated, but keeping things “uncomplicated” always tends to backfire. I loved Amelia and Brooklyn together—they inspired each other and grew together. I routed for them the entire time.
Hollywood Prince was a fun, sweet forbidden love story filled with swoon worthy moments about two broken characters finding themselves, and each other in the least expected way. Kim had me sucked in from the very first chapter. And as a labeled “goody two-shoes” myself growing up, Amelia was someone I could easily relate to.
