Publisher's Summary

One night. I let myself have one night with him after avoiding him for years. But one night was all it took for history to repeat itself.

Cade St. James was my past. He was the boy who stole my heart before he left for the Marine Corps. Now he’s back in Kroydon Hills, and there’s no mistaking he’s all man. A former MMA champion, running his own gym, and taking care of his adorable little girl. And I have to tell him our one night together is going to make him a father again.

Our timing has always been wrong. I can do this on my own if I have to. I don’t need to be saved. I’m a King, not a princess. I can save my own damn self.

Scarlet Kingston has always been too good for me. She’s also always been mine. But now, I don’t only have myself to think about. I have my daughter too.

We’ve both been burned before. And trusting another woman, especially one who’s already broken my heart, won’t be easy. But nothing with Scarlet ever was.

As a vice president of the Philadelphia Kings, grown men fear her. And Scarlet wouldn’t have it any other way. This woman can wear as cold of an exterior as she wants, but I’ve felt her on the inside. She’s no ice queen.

Can we both get past the hurts from the past and live in the present? Or are we both just broken?

Narration is irritating 😒

I only made it to chapter 4 and have to stop, rate and return because of Lucy Rivers' narration. I hate when narrators whisper while telling the story. I'm so irritated right now because I was really looking forward to this book.

Scarlet And Cade Are Everything!

Scarlet and Cade's story is about two stubborn equals coming together. As vice president of the Philadelphia Kings football team, Scarlet is feared by men around her. Former MMA champion Cade now trains fighters in the sport. Things get interesting after their one night together, and they can no longer avoid each other due to their Vegas souvenir. Sparks naturally start to fly between two sexy people who spend a lot of time together, blurring the lines. To stay together long term, they must confront the feelings that have always existed and their past. I couldn't stop listening; I finished Broken King in a day! This book's emotional backstory drew me in, and I cheered for them to figure things out finally!!!

The talented Joe Arden and Lucy Rivers didn't disappoint! Joe Arden is the perfect narrator for Cade. He nails all aspects of Cade personality -- confident alpha but still vulnerable, caring, protective, and supportive. Rivers conveys Shannon's hesitation to get involved with Cade despite her longing for the only man that she has ever loved. Together, Arden and Rivers bring us the fiery passion and intensity that is Scarlet and Cade! It was a wonderful listen!!!

Incredible

The Ice Queen, Scarlet Kingston, has met her match in a Saint, Cade St. James that is. Scarlet has been avoiding Cade since the day she broke up with him, except he is her brother's best friend, and no one knew they were together. One night in Vegas, for Hudson's MMA championship fight, not only brings them together, but ultimately exposes their history. Scarlet has avoided being in the same room as Cade because despite being the strong, no nonsense business mogul, Cade St James is the only man that can bring her to her knees, in the best way possible. Scarlet left Vegas determined to forget about Cade and their one night, until 3 months later the doctor has a surprise for her. Now the hard part, telling Cade and being able to resist him and Scarlet needs to resist him, if she is going to protect her heart. Cade already has her heart and so does their baby. Little by little, Scarlet lets Cade in, and one tiny little girl named Brynlee shows Scarlet she is ready to be a mom almost from the moment they meet.

Bella has written one of the strongest heroines I have seen in Scarlet, while intertwining a love that never died between her and Cade. These characters are the perfect balance of each other making a loving home for their new St. James family of 4, although I sure she won't let him forget who is 'king'. And I can't wait to read more about the whole Kingston family!!!

Joe Arden & Lucy Rivers did a phenomenal job as Cade & Scarlet

OMG

I thought I got all the feels when I read this book...but listening to it....holy wow. listening to it brings the book to life in sooo many different ways. The narrator's are exactly how I heard Scarlet and Cade in my head, the emotion in their voices is epic and of course the story...well let's just say Bella Matthews hasn't given us a bad story yet!!

4.5 stars

Broken King is the second book in the Restless Kings series from Bella Matthew focusing on Scarlet Kingston and Cade ‘Saint’ St. James told through dual narration.

Single father Cade has been involved with the Kingston family since high school, should it be going to high school with Beckett, or training & coaching Hudson in his MMA goals, and he still carries a torch for Scarlet, the eldest of Kingston daughters. Their steamy pre-college romantic history is always between them and he's still the only guy who can melt her to the core. Scarlet is the typical ENTJ alpha female, shes all about work in a male dominated world and shes determined to establish her own success. Cade is all brawn, alpha former marine caveman energy and they both figure a single hot night together couldnt do them much harm besides a few pleasurable aches for a few days.

Oh how wrong they were! The plot from there is pretty cookie cutter but in a good way.

Joe Arden and Lucy Rivers do an amazing job bring the characters to life.
