The Kings of Kearny by Navessa Allen


The Kings of Kearny

by Navessa Allen


ebook, 310 pages

Expected publication: June 15th 2021 by navessa allen





Synopsis: 

Jakob Larson is going to be the death of me.


That’s what I think every time he strides into my bar.


The Kings of Kearny run this small Texas town, and Jakob is their chief enforcer.


The Viking, they call him. He’s a criminal. As dangerous as he is sexy. The kind of man who makes my inner cavewoman sit up and take notice.


Him big. Make strong babies. Bring home mammoth for dinner.


I’m ready to indulge her desires, but just for one night. Unfortunately, Jakob has other plans.


Someone in town is breaking one of the cardinal rules set by the leader of The Kings. And Jakob thinks they’re using my grandmother’s nursing home as a front for their illicit activities.


Now I’m neck-deep in trouble with him, and every time I think I’ve figured out what’s really going on, Jakob reveals another piece of the puzzle.


I need to figure out how far I’m willing to go to protect this town. How far I’m willing to go with Jakob.


Because if I fall for him, there’s no going back. No hope for a peaceful ending.


But Jakob is the kind of man who makes me think that peaceful is overrated, and that descending into darkness with him could lead to something even better than a Happily Ever After.

4.5 stars


Krista is a military vet with a leg injury. It bothers her often but doesn't let that stop her from having a full life. She works at a bar where a local motorcycle club, The Kings of Kearny congregate. Somehow she has gained the attention of the Kings enforcer, Jakob whom she had already been lusting after if only in her mind. They are quickly thrown together and Krista decides to use Jakob to find the truth about what is going on inside her Granny's nursing facility. There is a possibility someone is messing with the resident's meds.


This story is more of a discovery into the relationship between Jakob and Kirsta. This relationship is unique and not your normal book romance. Jakob is angry and intense and his lovemaking can be mean and brutal, but somehow Kirsta is okay with this dynamic. She is a combat vet and understands where he is coming from.


We gain insight into Jakob's family connection and learn his father is a founding member of the club that created the Kings. On the surface he seems normal but he is underhanded and untrustworthy at the best of times. Krista wonders how he grew up in such a family and explains a lot about his personality.


The connection between Krista and Jakob is angry, intense and brutal. It is a biker romance so what do we expect, right? The whole atmosphere doesn't make you feel comfortable, it pulls you out of your romance comfort zone and challenges your definition of love.  This is definitely a new type of romance for me but I really enjoyed this intense ride.


Highly recommended. If you love a good contemporary biker romance, definitely check this one out!
