What a difference?!
L.H. Cosway is so talented. The style of writing in King of Hearts is so different to the previous two books but equally as compelling to read!
However, Jack is still my favourite Oliver King was something else entirely. A man at the top of his game, driven by the demons lurking in his past. We first meet King in Hearts of Fire as a drunk but in his very own story King of Hearts, we get to meet the man he once was. My heart broke for him in this heart wrenching story. A beautiful tale of love, loss and second chances.
King and Alexis were on fire. She was independent, witty and oh so funny and he was charismatic and charming. Together they were perfect!
So well written, it flowed effortlessly and I couldn't put it down. If you enjoyed the previous two books, you will love this and if you haven't started the series yet, what are you waiting for?
This pulled at my heart-strings in a big way. I loved the beginning bit where she was lying to him about her relationship preferences and then the modelling bit and then the falling deeper bit. The dad thing threw me a little just before it fast-forwarded 6 years to the time we see in "Hearts of Fire" at the circus. And then it tugged at my heart-strings even more and I just wanted to cry like a baby.
It was lovely to read Oliver King's story. How he started out so different to how we read him in Hearts of Fire, how he was a powerful man in London, how he fell in love with this Alexis we hear so much about... Thinking back, I think I'd like to cry for him.
This a brilliant addition to an already pretty amazing series. I can't wait to read more of them!
As someone who originally hails from the East End, I absolutely loved that this was set not only in the backdrop of London but also in areas I grew up in. It focuses on two characters I found impossible to not fall in love with. Alexis Clark and Oliver King. Employee and Employer. Both hard working, driven individuals who hail from different walks of life but have a common interest in the each other and not to mention scorching attraction.
The first time they are together is nothing short of explosive. I adored King and his filthy, cultured mouth but even more so, I enjoyed the depth of his character. Alexis' character is an admirable, charismatic one; weaker female leads would have been swallowed up by King's enigma but Alexis not only holds her own but shows a strength that even King himself later leans on. There were moments that left me bereft and my heart broke for them both but also there were such hilarious, uplifting moments it was truly hard (not that I wanted to) to find fault.
This is the part where I confess that I haven't read the first two books in the series. Although they are technically standalones, they are interlinked and recurring characters are introduced in the latter half of the story. If like me you are thinking of jumping into the series here, I wouldn't discourage you. Lorraine tells the story in such a magnificent way, I never felt as though I was missing out in any capacity. My experience in receiving the story may have been different but I don't believe there was any difference in it's impact.
L.H. Cosway has a style of writing, I felt it all the way back when I read The Nature of Cruelty. it's relatable, intelligent, emotive and incredibly sexy. Having finished Hearts of Fire with a huge grin on my face, it won't take a genius to figure out I'm definitely jumping into its predecessors.
This book filled me with happiness, knocked me down, trampled on my heart and then gradually lifted me back up again - I am sitting here welling up at the thought of it. It was simply beautiful.
Set in the hustle an bustle of Canary Wharf, one of London's major business districts, Alexis Clark is an East End barmaid who decides to put her administration diploma to good use and applies for a job at one of the top investment banks in the UK.
Oliver King finds Alexis refreshing, she has no filter, says inappropriate things and makes him laugh and offers her the job the very next day.
King is a very educated man, is at the top of his game and is highly charming, which is why Alexis decides to keep him at arms length and despite the attraction between them they become friends and decide to attempt to resist the temptation to tear each others clothes off.
The sexual tension at this point was through the roof, it's not long before King makes claim.
This first half of this story is a friends to lovers theme which had me smiling, laughing and falling in love with these two characters, but with nervous dread as to what was to come.
When the events occurred that led to King's destructive downfall, I was so upset, I was sad for the woman who loved him so fiercely, and I was in agony for the broken man that he became.
But never fear, because L.H Cosway has written a wonderful and loving character in Alexis and it is her job to save the man who gave her confidence and affection and unconditional love. When she receives a letter from the travelling circus, she is determined to give him back his crown and title of King of her world, as she is his Queen.
This was an emotional and uplifting story, I absolutely loved it. I loved that it was set in my city, and that Alexis was so relatable; she was funny and kind with a sense of humour and a heart of gold.
King was absolutely charming, he was sexy and confident and adored Alexis. It was heartbreaking to see such a strong man fall.
His recovery was tough but King was strong, and along with the people he loved close by, he found the path to happiness once again.
The writing was stunningly beautiful, and the emotions that this story brought out of me has definitely placed this book on my top 10 favourite shelf of 2015.
Oh and the epilogue! It was so clever, and lovely. It was told in King's POV and covered his perspective of all the best bits. So, so good.
This is a standalone contemporary romance written in Alexis' POV. It is not necessary to have read the previous books in this series, but I highly recommend them, or at least to have some insight to King's character in Hearts of Fire.
