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 by Nana Malone is AVAILABLE NOW!
THE DUET IS COMPLETE

“Nana Malone delivers royal-worthy chemistry in a snappy, page-turning package. Penny and Prince Sebastian are everything! Give us the next book now!” —Max Monroe, New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author

 

 

Contemporary, Romantic Comedy.

Dual-POV.

Book #2 of a duet. It is not supposed to be read as a stand-alone.

 

  • Addictiveness: Highly Addictive. This is a fast, sexy read. It can be read in one sitting.
  • Character: hero 5/5, heroine 5/5, secondary characters 5/5, growth 5/5, real 5/5  I love them both. After the shock of his father’s death, Penny’s lie and becoming king, Sebastian brings back the jerk in him for a while, but he grows so much in this book. He is a hot, caring, fair king. Through Sebastian, we see that is not easy being king. He must always be king first, and then the man. He has to give up so much in the name of the kingdom. I love Penny. I’m glad that she found her inner strength and value. Because more than how the others saw her, the way she thought of herself wasn’t really good. She also evolved a lot in this book. She moved from the accidental kick-ass heroine, to a truly badass. She stood up to her brother, her father, Sebastian and took a journey into herself. Oh, so many secondary characters that I love. Lucas, Ariel, Roone, Penny’s mom. I don’t know how I feel about Ethan knowing what Michael did and kept to himself.  Yeah, even though Ethan did a lot of nice things in this book, I was upset with that.
  • Cover: art 4/5, title 5/5, subtitle 4/5, color-font 4/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers and I love to “read” snippets of the story on it. I like this one, but I miss something more truly Sebastian. Maybe if in this one he had a crown or different clothes. I don’t know. Is hot, but it could be the  cover of any book. I love the title, and I would buy this book without reading the blurb. A hot guy and a catchy title? I’m easy like that. 🙂
  • Freshness: This may not have anything that I could say “oh, wow, so original”, but the overall feeling is FRESH, NEW. When we think we know it all, the author throws an unexpected twist.
  • Plot: believable 4/5, conflict 5/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 5/5, opening 5/5, pace 5/5, setting 5/5, subplots 5/5, twists 5/5  Great opening and wonderful ending. Really good conflict and well written dialogues. Fast-paced with enough subplots to enhance the story. A few unexpected twists  that brought some suspense to the story. I mean, I knew who the bad guys were, but it was still unexpected how it happened.
  • Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 5/5, steam 3/5 Their romance is beautiful. From the first book to this one, their journey is poignant, even though is sexy and funny. They have to overcome so much to love each other. They fight for each other. The smut is great and the scenes are all pertinent to the story. I mean, that office scene… yes, cold-shower hot!!! 🙂
  • Writing Style: Fantastic! Is fun, suspenseful and sexy!!! Superb characters, great plot and loving romance. What else could I want?

 

 

  • I’m out of ideas. I don’t think I can help here.

 

Yes! Give me more Royal Undercover Ms. Malone. I can wait to Lucas book, to Ariel’s book and for them to find their sister. Oh Roone also deserves a book.

32/35 STARS –  4.5 STARS (4.5 stars between 31.5 and 33 stars)

Addictiveness: 4.5 Character: 5  Cover: 4  Freshness: 4  Plot: 4.5  Romance: 5 Writing Style: 5

  • Action 3/5
  • Angst 0/5
  • Darkness 0/5
  • Humor 4/5
  • Romance 5/5
  • Suspense/Mystery 3/5
  • Would I recommend? I would recommend this book for everyone that enjoys fun, sexy romance.
  • Would I re-read this book? YES!
  • Would I re-read this series?  I will follow the series. Can’t wait!
  • Would I read more from the author? Yes,  looking forward to.

All they want is everything they can’t have.
Penny…
Yes, yes, I've heard the rumors.
The prince is royal, and cocky and has a—well never mind about all that.
The problem is, he's also my job.
When the King called on me to retrieve the wayward prince, I was ready to walk away.
Then I caught my boyfriend cheating—and suddenly leaving never felt like a better idea.
Sebastian…
I never wanted the throne.
When I left behind my gilded cage of a palace, it all sounded so simple: find my long-lost brother & make him the prince so I don't have to rule the kingdom like my father expects.
Then I meet my new neighbor, and quickly realize I’ve found the queen of my heart—and bed.
Just one problem, I can’t let her find out who I really am.

About Nana Malone

USA Today Bestselling Author, NANA MALONE’s love of all things romance and adventure started with a tattered romantic suspense she borrowed from her cousin on a sultry summer afternoon in Ghana at a precocious thirteen. She’s been in love with kick butt heroines ever since.

With her overactive imagination, and channeling her inner Buffy, it was only a matter a time before she started creating her own characters. Waiting for her chance at a job as a ninja assassin, Nana, meantime works out her drama, passion and sass with fictional characters every bit as sassy and kick butt as she thinks she is.

The books in her series have been on multiple Amazon Kindle and Barnes & Noble best seller lists as well as the iTunes Breakout Books list and most notably the USA Today Bestseller list.

Until that ninja job comes through, you’ll find Nana working hard on additional books for her series as well as other fun, sassy romances for characters that won’t leave her alone. And if she’s not working or hiding in the closet reading, she’s acting out scenes for her husband, daughter and puppy in sunny San Diego.
