Review: One King’s Way by Samantha Young

December 8, 2015 Book Reviews 0





The New York Times bestselling author of On Dublin Street returns to the bar where it all began with Braden and Joss for a white-hot new novella full of passion and drama.

When he’s not working at the club, Craig Lanaghan looks out for his mother and little sisters. So when it comes to women, all he wants is a good time. But once Rain Alexander walks into his life, there’s no denying that this woman could be worth much more than a one-night stand….

Rain’s lifelong regret is having left her sister Darcy alone years ago with a guardian who turned out to be abusive. So when Darcy’s boyfriend publicly humiliates her in a cruel way, Rain’s overprotective instincts kick in and she follows him to Club 39—where she meets a guy who just might be her perfect match.

The chemistry between Rain and Craig is explosive, but Rain is out for revenge, and refuses to be sidetracked by flirtation. As things between them heat up, she’ll have to make a heartbreaking choice between giving in to the man of her dreams or putting her sister’s happiness first….

Working in a bar has its ups and downs. Night after night, the barrage of people filtering through the bar can be both entertaining and annoying. For Craig, his tips came in the form of ‘attention’….the way he worked the bar and flirted with the female patrons. Any ‘relationships’ he carried into the night were always with no strings attached and no drama. Just the way a sexy bartender would like things.

Then Rain walked into the bar. The eccentric beauty caught Craig’s attention from the moment she sat down. The two immediately felt the sparks that were swirling around them. However – Rain fought that attraction. She was on a ‘mission’ and the feelings that were getting to her about Craig would only get in the way of her task. Craig decided to ‘dig deep’ and make sure Rain found him completely irresistible!!

One King’s Way was a steamy novella that pulled you into Craig and Rain’s story. It was a quick read that left you wondering what lies ahead for this sultry duo. In fact, this book was too ‘rushed’. I wanted more of…well, everything. As with a lot of novellas – the story is over in the blink of an eye. Hopefully fans of the series will see more of Craig and Rain in the future!!
