Fake boyfriend. Real danger.
Journey King is an expert at managing the family business. But when her father returns to Houston hell-bent on making a play for the company, Journey will do anything to stop him, even if that means going to Frank Evans for help. Frank deals in information, the dirtier the better. Rugged and rock solid, he’s by far her best ally—and also the most dangerous.
Frank knows better than to get tangled up with the Kings. But something about Journey’s rare vulnerability drags him deep into enemy territory . . . and into her darkest past. Pretending to be her boyfriend may be necessary for their plan to work, but Frank soon finds helping Journey is much more than just another job—and he’ll do whatever it takes to keep her

Another great read by Katee Robert! The Fearless King is the second book in her The Kings series. It can be read as a standalone because I had no problem following along without having read the first book in the series.
Journey King’s abusive father resurfaces and threatens her job and the strong person she has grown into despite the abuse he inflicted on her as a child. When just being in the same room as him turns her back into the weak little girl she’s once was, she turns to Frank Evans. Frank who has no love for her family but can get her the information she needs to deal with her father. They agree on a business agreement that includes a fake relationship that quickly morphs into so much more. Lives are at stake and both of them will do whatever it takes to protect those they love.
Frank and Journey are both characters with baggage from their past, but as they say like calls to like and when the two of them come together its intense. The sexual chemistry between them is hot hot hot. I loved everything about Frank he was sexy, confident, and fiercely protective. I felt for Journey and her struggles with standing up to her father who continually broke her down. They were a good match for each other, they didn’t want saving but nothing could stop them from saving each other.
The Fearless King was a suspenseful steamy romance that left me looking forward to the next book in the series. I have an urge to go back and read the first book, and I am hoping the next book has Eliza King getting her own version of happy.
