    Kinda feels like « she’s all that » meets « fifty shades of grey ».... Could have been awesome (I kinda have a soft spot for the « office wallflower turns out to be the love of his life » cliché) if she hadn’t been a virgin. That was overkill and annoying and ruined it for me

I loved the way Edie commented to the reader, just as an actor casts asides to the audience. You can easily see that there may be further books about the Prince and the Duke - now he's the one who really fascinates me! I would highly recommend buying this as soon as it is released - I will certainly be buying my own copy of the finished book.

    This book was amazing!! I couldn't stop reading once I started. Edie is like most of us. We all have a hidden side in us somewhere we don't want others to see. What she does for love will surprise you. Will she be able to have or King or only enjoy him temporarily hiding who she truly is? Without giving spoilers I just have to say NO to Connor. He better watch himself. I absolutely can't wait for the next book. This book was amazing!! I couldn't stop reading once I started. Edie is like most of us.

    Good stuff Very interesting take on billionaire playboys brought to their knees. The intricate dance of two lovers passing like ships in the night. Until one day, they collide. Can’t wait to see how Prince goes down.

    For Edie in so many of us! How nice would that be? To have some way have a chance to be with the man of our dreams like Edie? She’s way braver than me! I’d never be able to as far as she did, but then I’d never pined after a guy as long or as deeply as she did, so who knows? You could feel how complex her emotions were getting as the little web she was weaving became more and more tangled, both the good and the bad emotional experiences.

But, well you’ll have to check out how he handles not only Edie’s alter ego, but the great revelation... because I don’t do spoilers... but I will say you will enjoy the ride, regardless of the destination... which I won’t tell you about 😏

    Slow start Overall I liked this book, but it took a while for me to get into it. The first few chapters had me thinking hmmm maybe, but then it picked up when the interactions began at After Hours. I honestly didn't like the major lies between best friends, but it made the story more interesting. I'm curious to see how the next book gets past what Con did with Edie. Seems like that could be an issue for Dev, but then again Dean was essentially ok so maybe it's just me.

They each had their own quirks and their own development, except the roommate. I felt like she was just there. I liked how everything ended up, I thought it would be worse, but it was just right. I'm looking forward to the next book.

    Such an amazing book, while Ivy Fox has previously written RH novels I am glad this turned out to by just M/F. The King aka Dean is just too possessive to share his Queen aka Edie, while there were moments it could have become RH I don’t think it would have worked for Edie as she seems to have eyes for only her King. I loved the book from beginning to end, I didn’t want to stop reading I had to know what happend next.

    Addicting I picked this book up this morning and was immediately immersed. This story is so well written, the characters thought out so well down to their small quirks which is one of those things that make you feel like you KNOW them. It left me breathless so many times and not just because of the steam scenes nut because of the RAW emotion written into the story. I love it so much!

    THE KING♡ Another 5 star by ivy fox!! She never fails me. Everytime she releases a book i eat it up. Eddie was fantastical & i really saw a peice of me in her. She is definitely alot braver than i would be in her situation and she doesnt let one thing hold her back. The raw emotion that was in this book made me shed a few to be honest. I loved this journey from start to end and im already ready for another story!! Conners turn to show me what hes got!!

    OMG they are truly the definition of the eyes of the beholder couple. Their what each other has been missing for years and all it takes is a little Jen called After Hours, a mask, contacts, and a fake identity. When that all comes crashing down so do they, but they say two hearts that were meant to be will always find each other and they sure did. I love how she went on a limb to write this story I couldn't put it down I loved it.

    Good read, page turner Really enjoyed the book, couldn't put down til I finished it. The book shows how people wear masks in every day environments.

    Awesome So it had the whole superman/Clark Kent thing going on which always has me thinking how do people not know they're the same person??? I loved this book though, Ivy is a really good romance writer and I feel like I keep leaving the same review for her books but she is so good at having a perfect balance of romance and action and steamy scenes. I cant wait to read more by this author, I'm just sad that I've read everything she has put so far and am going to have to wait for the next books i Awesome So it had the whole superman/Clark Kent thing going on which always has me thinking how do people not know they're the same person???

    I absolutely loved this book from the start. There are scenes so hot and at the same time so lovely, where you understand the vulnerability of the MC´s. I prefer the type of writing where you read the perspective of both the MC's, and this book did not disappoint. I became fascinated by Bash (so mysterious...hummm!!). There was a point in the story where Edie does something behind Devina's back, that I thought, for sure, was going to blow up in her face (no pun intended) later on, however, when I absolutely loved this book from the start.

I did wept though, when Edie, in her insecurity, refused to take off her mask, but in reality I understand her motives. When the End finally came when Dean realizes who she is...Oh dear...I literally had goosebumps all over my body. Ivy Fox...you have just gained another loyal fan and I'm so anxious for The Prince to be released, because I'm sure that story will be explosive.

VERY slow to start - no drama no suspense no anything other than a Flat line story....I stoped and started several times thinking it would get better and it never did....

    What??!! I didn’t know what to expect from this book, but I certainly was not wanting a book about a woman who embezzles a quarter of a million dollars just so she can get the attention of a man at a sex club, because he doesn’t look at her in real life. Who, being an innocent virgin puts herself in a sex club all because she has the hots for her boss, who, while at work Doesn’t look at her twice? Who goes to a sex club only to pass judgement on what acts others choose to do in said Sex club?? I What??!!

Who goes to a sex club only to pass judgement on what acts others choose to do in said Sex club?? I got to 67% of this book and gave up. There was so much inner thought dialogue and not enough conversations that I found myself skimming paragraphs looking for the conversations. There was also such an overuse of the words “king” “pet” and “beauty” I almost wanted to skip the club scenes if those weren’t the meat and potatoes of the book. The “steamy” scenes became repetitive and were too tame. As there was no other story line, like some kind of conflict/mystery to be solved, etc as far as I read, I felt this book could have been shorter. I guess I wasn’t a fan of the too wordy, rambling as if talking to your best friend writing style. If there is a book two, I am not reading it.

When she's presented with an opportunity to know more about Dean's world after office hours, she grabs it with both hands. 'After Hours' will be their playground, but will Dean ever see the real Edie? This book was a sweet romance with the main focus being the relationship development between Edie and Dean. I adore Edie's best friends Devina and Lexi, they are truly the ride or die kind of friends. Throughout the book the foundation for the second book in this series is laid. The animosity between Devina and Connor is palpable, you could cut the tension with a knife and somehow I can't wait to find out what the two of them went through. What I loved the most? Probably the acknowledgement, because I'm a sucker for real life romance. ♥️

    Needs to work on dialogue I struggled to finish this book, and honestly I ended up skimming big chunks. I didn’t have a problem with the overall storyline, but the dialog really bothered me. Edie’s inner monologs weren’t terrible, but they were kind of juvenile and they didn’t match with how she spoke out loud. All the characters spoke kind of strangely, like they were trying to use fake British accents (?)... but they’re supposed to be New Yorkers.... it was distractingly weird.
