Cheeky King ( review by Christine Jalili)
What a fantastic book! I stayed on edge and loved feeling their heartbreak. Sebastian’s Dad has died, but was it really a heart attack? Is he ready to be a King? Will he ever forgive Penny? She’s not only a commoner, she’s part of the Royal Guard, they are forbidden from being together. She’s saved him before, is there still a plot against him? Loved getting both POV, a very happy ever after that had me laughing too. I highly recommend this book.
Loved it. I couldn't put it down, I read it all in one day. I loved these two, Sebastian and Penny, they had great chemistry. It is possible to get your fairytale ending but not without a lot of bumps in the road and someone out there trying to kill you.
King Sebastian is bae!
Cheeky King is here! King Sebastian is bae! To borrow a line from an amazing comic book turned movie “With Great Power, Comes Great Responsibility” and Sebastian rises to the occasion beautifully. Penny has come into her own as well. Cheeky King is a great ending to the Royals Undercover series. If you haven’t read Cheeky Royal or Cheeky Prince be sure to check those out as well.
King of my world

Cheeky King (Royals Undercover Book 2) Kindle Edition
by Nana Malone
I really enjoyed this magnificent book – it has all the elements of a fairy tale but it's most definitely is not your child's version. I enjoy when the characters drama can be in three forms, one the huge issue of going from palace guard to undercover girlfriend to lover. While the prince is a undercover bartender to King. Who now feels he was deceived and wants his pound of flesh and Penny is the only one he wants to pay. Watching Penny and Sebastian dance around each other, even under the circumstances that they have agreed to, and as they slowly realize how much they care love each other is frustrating but it's also funny, sizzling hot but sexy. Plus when Penny runaway from Sebastian the situation is very emotional and we get a very engaging story of two seemingly very different people, who actually have a lot more in common than you would imagine. But once she leaves for a another country, it causing him to suddenly realize his love for her. Then there is a twisted thrown into the mix one that is truly a surprise. But it will all unfold in way which have to be read to be enjoyed, but I enjoyed every moment of it. Again Penny's best friend will have laughing so much I really liked this character. She has however a hand in somethings and that helps the couple connect with each other. This is the second book but the third installment in this series and there could be more and I would be first one to buy it on online to get my next fix but sadly it's fated to be the last one but I'm hoping that these fantastic characters will continue to talk in Ms.Malone head until she feels she must write more about the Royal family where she introduced us to younger siblings and allow us to visit with the King and Queen whom I know has been absolutely irresistible to all of her readers. As we read we get to visit with a number of familiar faces. OMW! I have to say it again it's amagnificent read! I have absolutely enjoyed reading M.Malone books Again this book allows you to get more acquainted with these awesome characters, they are amazing, powerful, exhilarating and full of surprises. Again this is a story that's so fascinating, humorous and realistic. I am a fan for a lifetime. Because I enjoy reading a book when the author makes me laugh and it put a smile on my face, it's exactly why I read romance. I will say it again I enjoy these books. Nana Malone can rock my world anytime, with a fantastic story. A Great Story to Read, I highly recommend this perfect book that allows me to escape in another world.
The finale. Finally!
Finally! No spoilers but I definitely called this one. Great conclusion to this series. The ending did feel a little rushed but I don’t think it took away from the overall experience of the series.
Wow. Just wow. I mean wow. Who would have guessed? Amazing story telling Ms. Malone. Definitely a different twist from your typical books and I loved it. I'm really hoping we see more from the Royals of Winston Isle.
When Hope Seems Lost Love Finds A Way
This book series is so good. I just loved every bit of it. Cheeky King was just as good as, if not better than, the first book. I adore all the characters in these books and hope that Mrs. Malone decides to write some more books to tell their stories too, especially Lucas and Ariel’s.
In Cheeky King Sebastian and Penny return home to become the people they never expected to be. Sebastian fought so hard to escape his fate before but now he finally realizes that maybe there is no one better to take the throne than him. That no one will love his country and take care of it’s people as well as his father, except for him.
Penny has never been seen as anything but the “screw up” by a lot of fellow guard members but now that’s all changed. When news of what happened on Penny’s mission gets spread around the others start to look at her and treat her differently. It’s a very unfamiliar and almost awkward feeling to Penny and takes a lot of getting use to.
The relationship between Penny and Sebastian is strained. The two have a lot to talk about and work out but both are so stubborn. Neither one of them willing to be the one to step forward and initiate the conversation. Before they know it danger is knocking at the door again. Will they be able to apprehend the bad guys, have their long awaited heart to heart and find a way to be together? Or will this be the end for them?
Nice ending to the Sebastian and Penny story. All the questions are answered, even the ones you didn’t know to ask!
I couldn’t put this down once I started!!! Cheeky King picks up where Cheeky Royal leaves off. If you loved Sebastian before, be prepared to hate him for most of the book. Penny, has grown and progressed that’s to the events in New York. Thanks to her heroics in New York, everyone in the Royal Guard sees Penny for the hero that she is! Too bad Penny doesn’t see herself as a hero. Instead she feels like a fraud because her heroic actions weren’t a big deal in her eyes. The pressure to maintain this heroic view points weighs heavily on Penny. The one person who has the ability to make it all better for Penny, is the same person making her life hell: Sebastian.
Meanwhile, our not so fair King Sebastian is grieving the loss of his father, his relationship with Penny/Len, and coming to terms with his feelings about all of the lies surrounding these people in his life. Luckily with all of this depth and drama we have Ariel, the best friend everyone should have!!! There are heart pounding plot twists and greater development of Lucas and Sebastian’s best friend Roone. I can’t wait for more!!!!!
I was provided an advanced reader copy for this very honest review.
Penny and Sebastian made me love them! That couple went through so much and you never knew are they or aren’t they. That’s the good thing about Nana Malone. She weaves a story that you want to see through to the end. Readers have to know what is going to happen. After reading Cheeky Prince, you can’t imagine that there would be this much still to go on. This book has twists and turns and surprises galore.
I am praying that we get a few more Winston Isle books because I am hooked. Once I am hooked, I am like a dog with a bone. I want to know about everybody. Nana does that to me every time.
This is reminiscent of the Blake Security Series. A lot of surprises with thrilling action and quite a bit of sexiness. Nana definitely has that recipe down to a science.
