The Arrogant Architect is #LIVE, click here for a short video!
Kingsley Lennox, AKA King, has been dubbed a genius of the architectural world. Anything he touches turns to gold, and being as successful as he is, his work is his number one priority. He doesn’t have time to date or deal with the slew of women that gawk at him just because of his perfect face and chiseled body. Plus, no one has interested him enough to give a shit, until the smart mouthed Everly Adams, AKA Ever, wakes to the noise of him restoring the building next door to hers.
Ever, like King, doesn’t have the time or the desire to date, she’s been through so much. So when she meets King, she can’t help but want nothing at all to do with the arrogant asshole. For one, they share nothing in common. For another, he’s pompous, cocky, and throws his money around as if that will win her heart. Did I mention he’s fucking crazy and very controlling? No, thank you!
But when King sets his mind to something, he accomplishes it…always has, always will. Ever is the biggest challenge he’s faced, but will she be the only person he can’t impress?
Can King win her over, all while hiding the truth about who he really is?
Let me start off by saying this is the first book I’ve ever read by this author. Whenever you read an author for the first time, you never know quite what to expect. The synopsis on this one had me hooked. Heck I would read this one based on the title alone…..The Arrogant Architect. I mean hello….who can say no to that?!
L.K. Collins has a great style of writing and the story line is captivating and entertaining. King is over the top and overbearing, but I liked that about him! So why am I giving this book 4 stars then? Because I didn’t care for the female lead character, Everly. She was kinda snobbish and unappreciative, in my opinion. I could not connect with her because she got on my nerves. But I think the story itself is a good one and still deserves 4 stars despite my issue with the heroine.
Suddenly, he turns down an unfamiliar street and parks on the side. “I’ve gotta pick this up for her, do you need anything?”
“A shot of anything would be great.”
He touches my cheek with the back of his knuckles, igniting my insides. I never thought I’d like his hands on me…but after tonight, I really do. He gets out of the car and I rest my head back, watching him walk into the old-fashioned pharmacy, dressed in gray shorts and a white t-shirt. He really is hot, so fucking sexy.
Looking out the window, I think back to tonight and sitting on that rock in his arms – it was so nice. For the first time in years, I had someone to turn to when I was in pain. It wasn’t everyone depending on me. He was there for me and comforted me and didn’t expect me to get over it because it’s been almost six years. It’s sad how quick-forgetting some people are when it comes to grief. After losing my mom, everyone I was close to didn’t have the patience for me. I can sense the people I work with are that way too – when I have a bad day, they don’t get it. It’s not like that with my dad…but we hide our pain from one another to try to help each other move on. But being with King tonight was different. It was nice to be myself and let my emotions go where they needed.
He comes walking out of the store carrying two bags, and there I go undressing him with my eyes. His cock bulge is straining his shorts and I shake the thought away. What is wrong with me? A few days ago, I detested him, and now…I’m looking at his dick.
He slides in the car and hands me a bag. “I didn’t know what you liked, so I got one of everything.”
I look inside and there is an array of tiny liquor bottles. Every kind you could think of. “You know I was joking, right?”
“Were you?” he starts the car and pulls away, dead serious.
“You’ve gotta stop doing that to me…”
