NEW RELEASE & OUR REVIEW: Drama King by Penny Reid


Snowed in with her off-limits celebrity client. What could go wrong?

Drama King, an all-new forced proximity, mistaken identity, romantic comedy from New York Times bestselling author Penny Reid, is now available!


Drama King was the perfect read for this dreary weekend. I picked up Beth and Cyrus's story and before I knew it, I was half way through it and nowhere near ready to put it down. From their first meeting, I knew I was going to enjoy them: he was a complete gentleman when she had an unfortunate alcohol/antihistamine reaction on a fake blind date (I promise it'll all make sense, just go with it) and then the next day when they discovered she'd be on his security team, her insistence on owning up to her new boss about what happened between them the night before, endeared her to me. From jump, he was intrigued by her and while she was equally interested in him, she decided that work and professionalism were more important than any interest she may have (much to his chagrin). The vast majority of the novel was watching them purposely and inadvertently antagonize each other. His inability to charm her or provoke a reaction was maddening to him and her thinking he thought less of her because of their initial fake blind date made for lots of funny and frustrating interactions. I loved every second. Things built and built and built until Beth felt the need to remove herself from the job; of course this led to both of them having to identify and confront some of the feelings they'd suppressed and by the very end, when an accident forced them together one last time, all the truths came out to play which led to their happily ever after.

I really enjoyed Homecoming King and I loved Drama King and I cannot wait to read the third book in this series. Each book has such warm and funny characters. There's a great mix of action, depth, humor and emotion; everything is perfectly paced and leaves you completely satisfied while somehow still wanting more. 

Stuck with her off-limits, taciturn, hunky movie star client during a sudden snowstorm on Christmas Eve, an extremely capable and highly professional bodyguard must keep him alive and warm without letting the tension building between them get too hot.

Bathsheba (Beth) Ryan can’t thank her best friend enough for helping her land the job of her dreams. After being relegated to second-string security for politicians in DC, being hired as an undercover personal security specialist by a giant Hollywood studio is exactly the kind of action she’s always wanted.

Until she meets her first assignment.

Cyrus Malcom can’t thank his agent enough for arranging a blind date with seemingly the woman of his dreams. After spending the past several years playing all the parts and climbing all the ladders, the lonely mega movie star finds himself actually enjoying a night on the town for the first time in ages when he meets the gorgeous, funny, and genuine Ryaine O’Rourke.

Until she shows up at his studio meeting the next day with a completely different name.

A world-wide press tour and too many late-night parties later, Beth simply needs to get through a short, one-day visit during the Christmas holiday, and then she’ll be free of Cyrus Malcom’s confusing hot looks and cold shoulders for good.

But just as they leave the airport, it starts to snow . . .

‘Drama King’ is the second book in the Three Kings Series, is a full-length, contemporary romantic comedy, and can be read as a complete standalone.
