Just One Scandal: The Kingston Family Series, Book 2 Audible Audiobook – Unabridged
A jilted bride. Her brother’s ex-buddy. A fake affair would be crazy...right?
Chloe Kingston’s life is exactly how she needs it: safe and stable. Right up until her reliable, low-risk fiancé jilts her on their fairy-tale wedding day. As she works her way through the reception champagne - and wonders where she’s going to live - she stumbles into her brother Linc’s ex-best friend.
If only Beckett Daniels was hideous. But he’s not. He’s everything her erstwhile groom was not. Hot. Sexy. Dangerous. And she’s just buzzed enough to want all that Greek-god gorgeousness to show her the kind of fun she’s been missing.
Beck thrives on calculated risks, but taking advantage of Linc’s little sister isn’t one of them. What he can do is haul her tipsy, tulle-clad, tempting little butt to the bridal suite to sleep it off. Then move her into his spare room - which has the satisfying side effect of driving her brother crazy.
With the paparazzi tracking their every move, they resort to a fake relationship to cool the hottest topic on the society pages. But when tragedy threatens, pain from their past reminds them that life doesn’t come without risks...and this time, they’ve gambled with their hearts.

Beck is the enemy, so everyone thinks due to bad past with Chloe's big brother during their college days. But when Chloe's wedding day implodes, stranding her at the altar with no groom, Beck becomes her savior. After surviving the tragedy of her wedding, Chloe decides to go ahead and have the party that was supposed to be her reception. Beck is having a nice dinner in the hotel with his family and after an encounter with the drunken bride he escorts her to her room with the best of intentions of getting her a good nights sleep and sober. However he ends up spending the night, and however innocent that one night was he can't help but enjoy the look of horror on her big brother and his ex-best friends face the next morning when he shows up at the hotel to bring her home. When the two start to come to blows after Linc thinking the worst and that Beck has taken advantage of his sister, Chloe steps in and ends up going home with Beck instead of her own brother.
Chloe can't help the attraction she feels and the sparks fly with Beck but he tries to not take advantage of the jilted bride when she becomes his room mate. Being afraid to love again after a huge loss in his life as well as what he feels as a betrayal in college of his best friend and ex-girlfriend, Beck doesn't do relationships, no matter how attracted and strong the chemistry is with Chloe. But he can't deny them at least an affair while she's under his roof, after all he's a man and seriously the room combusts when they are near each other. He knows it's only a matter of time before he takes the beautiful Chloe to bed. He's not prepared at all for the protective feelings and need he has for this woman and when things get heated he gives in but intends to protect his heart at all costs.
This story will make you laugh and it will make you cry at one point with the emotions of Beck and the loss he carries in his heart. But you know from the beginning he's not the bad guy you might have thought when you met him in book one of the series with Linc. Chloe is the heroine we all love, strong, a little lost and broken and with the help and love of the RIGHT man helps to mend the pieces of her past. Beck helps Chloe to realize her own dreams and desires, something she has forgotten and tried to deny to have a safe life instead of a fulfilling one.
I adore Beck and Chloe, this book is absolutely magnificent and the best of the summer !!! Be prepared to fall in love with this couple and enjoy the steamy journey of their passionate love story!!!
Chloe sends her family home so they don't hover over her and insists on having the reception since the foods been prepared, and the DJ's been hired. The reception is in a hotel, and when Chloe and a couple of her bridesmaids who have had a little too much to drink see Beck and his buddies, they invite them to have some fun.
Beck and Chloe's brother used to be best friends, but haven't spoken to each other since college. When Chloe and Beck hit it off, he offers to let her stay at his place until she can find a place to live, keeping it strictly platonic. One day, they cross the line and sparks fly.
Could Beck be Chloe's knight or will his past with her brother Lincoln keep them apart.
I loved Just One Scandal. It's a sweet and sexy read that you won't be able to put down.
When her oldest brother finds them together in the Honeymoon Suite...although nothing happened...Chloe decides she'll take Beck up on his offer of a place to stay so she doesn't have to go crawling home to her family until she's ready.
Issues with Beck and his family, along with Chloe and her family, try to pull them apart. Can they survive as a couple or will they head their separate ways?
What a nicely put together story! Families can sometimes be a bit too in your face when you want to be on your own, but they can also be a soft place to land when you need that. Just One Scandal is the second book in this series and continues the story of the Kingston family. I can't wait until the next book comes out!
Beck doesn’t do relationships. Absolutely, unequivocally, never in a million years will he care for a woman and open himself up for any more pain and devastation from losing someone he loves again. It's just not happening.
I love the intermingled Dare and Kingston world, and Chloe and Beck's story is amazing! I always enjoy a strong, determined shero with a kind heart as well as a hero who's a little more broken than we see at first glance.
This gifted storyteller gives us her trademark chemistry and steam, a little angst, a sprinkle of humor and abundance of heart. I have no doubt these perfect flawed, amazing characters will find a place in your heart, so start reading this one today!

Characters great and glad Chloe moved out of her comfort zone.
Beck had a lot to deal with but Chloe did bring the best out of him just unfortunately Linc and Becks were no longer speaking.
