King Consort by J.R. Gray

 

Avoiding sleeping with women was my specialty, an art form even. As the future King of England I couldn’t be caught sleeping with men. My whole life played out in front of the paparazzi, and they didn’t miss a thing. 

I had a carefully crafted womanizing persona to maintain. My life came with rules, all of which I broke when I couldn’t resist a one night stand with the enemy: A beautiful paparazzo with a heart of gold. He may be the only person who doesn’t want me for my title, and he can never be anything more than my secret. 

But secrets have a way of coming out and not only will they scare him away, but they’ll lose me the crown.

His Royal Highness, Prince Louis Albert Frederick of the House of Gotha, Prince of Wales is young, handsome, and next in line for the throne. Whether he likes it or not, Louis has lived a very public life. 

 

With his sister Anne coming off a high profile and very public battle with drug addiction, he understands more than ever there are aspects of his life that must always remain private. Louis must walk a straight and narrow line which is difficult when he isn’t very straight. 

 

While he knows what being King will mean for his future, marriage and children, he is not ready to give up his desires. For now, he keeps that part of his life hidden through one night stands and a very ironclad Non-Disclosure Agreement.

 

Enter Xavier, a freelance photographer that sells his pictures to the highest bidder. Xavier has been hired to take pictures of the visiting Prince and Princess to see if there is any further dirt that can be dug up. He is an unlikely love interest, yet Louis is unable to help himself. 

 

The term King Consort was not new to me, yet it did not stop me from wanting to read this book. Knowing actually intrigued me. I wanted to know the journey the author was going to take us on and I was not disappointed. 

The characters and their story were very entertaining. King Consort was a quick read with the right amount of angst. While there were editing errors throughout the book, it was not enough to deter me from finishing.
