Skye has been burned by her ex-boyfriends and is now known as a heartbreaker. How? The relationships ended amicably...or so she thought. Now she wants to be known as the heartbroken.
EJ and Skye come together hoping to help the other’s image while reinventing their own. Only they fall for each other during their charade.
I really enjoyed getting to know EJ more in this book. Skye and The Electrocutes are so much fun. I look forward to seeing them more in future installments.
I have 2 things that bug me about this set of novels. One is very minor and the other is major. First the minor, in the books he refers to the twins as "maternal” or “paternal“ twins!! The correct term is “fraternal”, but it’s totally unnecessary to say that anyway because they're boy/girl twins so they can ONLY be fraternal twins and not identical.
The second issue is much bigger. I get needing angst in a novel, but the level of angst that goes on in this series goes way beyond interesting plot device, and goes into the frustrating zone. It's one of those things that could be solved by the characters saying 1 sentence about their true feelings, but every time they get close something gets in the way. This is fine for a while, but it gets old.
When the couples finally come together, its at the very end of the book and we hardly get to enjoy them together as a couple. Then the epilogue is about the next book's character, so we don't even get to enjoy the new couple there either. I love series that follow a set group of people because we get to keep following up with the characters we have loved from previous books, but in King of Nice, although all the characters are still present, Zoey is totally absent from this 2nd book, so again, we don't get to enjoy that relationship at all. And this is particularly a shame because the entire first book of the series is about whether Zoey & Derrik can make a long-distance/rock star relationship work. SO it would have been nice to see them making it work in King of Nice. Although that's alluded to, we never get to experience it.
Having said that, I enjoy the subject matter explored, the character development, the relationship development and the romance of King of Nice.
Content: Clean, kissing. Inferred sexual relations. A few cuss words. No "F" word.
Skye and EJ come to a deal about reimagining their images. They fall for each other along the way. And then there is a constant back and forth between them for the rest of the book.
I didn't really like Skye. She was so aggravating. She started the whole sham. And every time EJ tried to talk about his feelings for her, or show her he wanted something real, she reminded him of their deal. She firmly planted herself there, refusing to budge.
I felt horrible for EJ. The guy has no experience with girls and dating. Kissing one other person, and not in a relationship setting, doesn't count as experience. The poor guy was so twisted around and confused by Skye. Again, how is someone with no experience supposed to navigate the cluster they set up? Add Skye with her mixed signals, and you get the mess they made. I mean, seriously, every time he tried to be real, Skye would say something about their deal. (She further aggravated me with her blaming EJ for not speaking up. "He could have said something too" was her go-to excuse for sending mixed signals.)
I also feel we, as readers, got robbed at the end. They both, stubbornly, refused to admit they had more than a deal. Then EJ shows up, kisses her, and she's all "I wouldn't have it any other way"...? What the what is that? I feel like we should have seen them talk it out a lot more with each other after that ping pong tournament we went through.
Some of the best parts of the book involved Jade. I'm glad we got to see her more. She definitely helped EJ out, though she should've been more forceful. I hope in her book she breaks up with her boyfriend that is clearly with her for her fame.
