Hollywood Prince by Kim Karr
Publication Date: January 2nd, 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Brooklyn James should know better.
Born into Hollywood royalty, the brooding prince has a reputation as being a player. A manwhore. A womanizer.
Adoring fans are his thing.
His best friend’s little sister is not.
Even thinking about her the way he is isn’t cool.
Not cool at all.
And yet every time she pouts those sexy lips at him, she turns him inside out. Makes him harder than he’s ever been. Drives him to the brink of insanity.
Amelia Waters has always idolized her big brother, and the last thing she wants to do is disappoint him.
Falling for her brother’s ex-roommate is off-limits.
She knows this, but she can’t help herself.
The way Brooklyn looks at her with those smoldering blue eyes makes her wet in an instant. Turns her into a shivering, shaking mess of sexual frustration. And soon the idea of spreading her legs for him is the only thing she can think about.
She wants him.
He wants her.
When they finally decide to give in to their insane attraction, they agree it will remain between them. That their illicit affair will be short-term. No strings. No baggage. No messy ending.
But when the first night of mind-blowing sex leads to another, and another still, how long can the endless hookups go on before Amelia’s brother finds out? Or worse yet, before feelings develop?
Brooklyn and Amelia know they need to walk away from each other before either of those things happens.
The problem is doing it.
Talk about a mess.
Hollywood Prince is a sexy, standalone, contemporary romance about a bad boy and the off-limits girl who steals his heart.

“Marry him, marry me
I’m the one that loved you baby can’t you see?
Ain’t got no future or family tree
But I know what a prince and lover ought to be
I know what a prince and lover ought be”
Kim Karr chose the perfect song to illustrate the predicament that Amelia Waters finds herself in, in Karr’s newest release Hollywood Prince. But just because Amelia has two men vying for her affection, in quite differing ways, this is not a story that includes cheating, because in my perspective, there was never really a choice; Amelia’s circumstances and her need to breakout of her Good Two Shoes lifestyle leads her to California and to Brooklyn James, and despite Brooklyn’s womanizing, bad boy reputation as well as his and Amelia’s decision to keep their relationship a secret and only about sex, the chemistry between them and the their connection outside of physical intimacy is something neither of them have ever had, which makes their story one where its ending will not end without heartbreak.
Brooklyn James may have a tarnished crown and “frog-like” tendencies when it comes to the opposite sex, but Kim Karr does a great job of illustrating who Brooklyn is beneath the panty-dropper and ex-reality star persona. He knows making a play for Amelia behind his best friend’s back makes him a shitty friend, but Brooklyn can’t let go of his desires for her and Amelia wants him just as much, so the only solution for them is to ride out their chemistry in a way that hopefully burns it out by the time Amelia needs to return to New York.
Amelia Waters may be lost due to her recent family discoveries and she may want to break free from a life that hasn’t truly been lived for herself and experience a little bit of bad, but her feelings for Brooklyn don’t stem from his playboy behavior. Over a decade ago, Brooklyn became Amelia’s once “Prince Charming” and regardless of what Amelia thinks her relationship with Brooklyn signifies now and the fact that she believes he’s her “Mr. Oh-So-Wrong,” Brooklyn fulfills every aspect of a contemporary Prince Charming – traits that Amelia may not have considered being a part of her perfect man, but when it comes in the package that is Brooklyn James, they’re the only qualities that truly matter.
Hollywood Prince is a sexy and swoon worthy read that takes the concept of a fairy tale and modernizes it in a way that proves that perfection isn’t possible and that even tarnished and broken princes can be exactly the man a woman needs in order to experience all aspects of life that are worth living.
Brooklyn James is definitely not a frog and Kim Karr reminds readers that Prince Charming doesn’t have to be the ultimate man who provides the best possible chance for a happily ever after; he just has to be the man who makes a woman feel loved, cherished, and everything he’s ever wanted.
