    * A review copy was provided by the author * ~ 3 Stars ~ So it pains me to say this but Queen of Men is not my favorite Terri E.Laine book. I was nervous to read this book after reading Money Man (Book 1) and rightly so….this story went exactly where I predicted it to go. I am going to start with what I liked about the book, then I will tell you what I didn’t. I LOVED Kalen in this story.

I was nervous to read this book after reading Money Man (Book 1) and rightly so….this story went exactly where I predicted it to go. I am going to start with what I liked about the book, then I will tell you what I didn’t. I LOVED Kalen in this story. It took me some time to warm up to him in Money Man, but by this book I am in love with him. I still like Bailey but my overall picture of her has changed a little after reading this book. I don’t want to say much about the storyline, but I will say I LOVED the suspenseful aspect of it. I am HOPING that the third book in this series really focuses on that. I am interested to see where Terri is going to take these characters. I really hope some of the extra characters (Turner) that we met in this story really don’t play much of a part in the next book. I did love seeing what Bailey’s life at home was like. I thought Terri gave a realistic point of view to this type of lifestyle. I liked getting to know more of Bailey’s family and meeting her siblings. Again I think some of them played a bigger role then need be, but we’ll see where she goes with it. Ok, so here is what I didn’t like…. Queen of Men is a love triangle story. Which is a hard limit for me!!! This story is exactly why I don’t like triangles in my reading. There are too many players in the story. I wish Terri would’ve kept it between Bailey and Kalen. I think the storyline from the first book had enough drama in it to keep this story interesting without having to add more unnecessary drama…..in my opinion. Now if you are a fan of love triangles, then I think you will LOVE this book. The other thing I was not expecting is the Cliffhanger at the end. I thought this was going to be the final book in this series…so color me surprised to see it end the way it did. I don’t mind cliffhangers if I know they’re coming. When you start reading a book and get to that ending, it just would’ve been nice to let the reader know up front that this series was a 3 books series. This book is NOT a standalone novel, Money Man DOES need to be read before reading this book. This book is told in Dual POV. I thought the flow and pace of the story worked well. Had it not been for the triangle I would’ve loved this story!! I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a triangle, but just know that the first book in this series is not a triangle. If you are a fan of Terri’s books, then I think you should give this a try. Just because it wasn’t my favorite doesn’t mean it won’t be a 5 star for other readers.

    Queen of Men is the highly anticipated second installment in the addictive King Maker series by Terri E. Laine. It cannot be read as a standalone since you need to read the first book prior to this one in order to understand what's going on. After finishing Money Man I was left with my jaw on the floor and with a pounding heart anxiously awaiting the continuation of Bailey and Kalen's story. I had very high expectations for this book and I'm happy to report that they've all been met. Queen of Me Queen of Men is the highly anticipated second installment in the addictive King Maker series by Terri E. Laine. It cannot be read as a standalone since you need to read the first book prior to this one in order to understand what's going on. After finishing Money Man I was left with my jaw on the floor and with a pounding heart anxiously awaiting the continuation of Bailey and Kalen's story. I had very high expectations for this book and I'm happy to report that they've all been met. Queen of Men was a great and entertaining read although it was not as fast paced as the previous book which made total sense to me due to what was happening in the story. Terri put the focus on the emotional turmoil of the characters and their complex relationships with each other which is frankly speaking essential for the further course of the story. We also get to see more of Bailey's background - how and where she grew up and what life is like in an Amish like community. Bailey hastily left New York after her shocking discovery in book one. She told Kalen to leave her alone and to move on. In dire need of some space, solitude and a place to hide she goes to her family's secluded home. But facing the man she was once betrothed to and who was her first love - Turner - will turn out to be a big challenge. He is still gorgeous, kind-hearted and sweet and spending time with him rekindles the feelings she still harbors for him. But the magical spell sexy billonaire Kalen put her under is still very much present and she can't get him out of her head. Even though she knows that it would be best to forget him. Kalen knows that he was a fool for letting a woman like Bailey walk away but now he is hellbent on getting his woman back and keeping her safe from the lurking dangers. I could totally understand Bailey's inner conflict. Turner and Kalen are both fascinating men and alluring in their own ways. While everything with Turner feels familiar and solid, with Kalen it was mysterious and exciting. I loved both of them for different reasons and that's Terri E. Laine's fault. She made choosing one guy simply impossible! I've thoroughly enjoyed reading this book and have devoured it within a few hours. Now I can't wait to see what this amazingly talented author has in tow for my beloved characters. I'm now counting the days until King Maker comes out. Queen of Men is another top favorite of 2019 and I'm giving it thus 5 well-deserved stars. Please do yourself a favor and pick up this fantastic series!

This ends on a huge cliffhanger, so we will have to wait until December to find out what Terri has in store for us!

    Bailey is quite the saucy girl, “for what? S**? Because if that comes out of your mouth, God help me—” the man is quite possessive, “no, you’re not property. You’re much more valuable than that. You’re MINE.” He growled out the words like a final warning... " i liked this book, I can't wait to see what happens next. Bailey is quite the saucy girl, “for what? S**?

Add Turner into the mix and the story grows. Trouble still lurks for Bailey though she brushes it off until it affects her family. Definitely need to read Money Man first and can't wait for more of the twisted possible love triangle. OMG!!!

    This book seemed to take a massive wrong turn from book 1. I didnt expect this to turn into a love triangle and anything I liked about Bailey in book 1 died a slow death thanks to her wishy washy feelings and the fact that every man seems to become stupid over her it the worst way. Kalen went from super sexy alpha to a man who sits and patiently waits for his girl to mess around with her old love abit right in front of him while hes left his son back at home and although he said he would leave h This book seemed to take a massive wrong turn from book 1.

I just felt like none of it rang true and found myself saying "what the fuck?" Quite abit. Yet even though this story has taken a dive (in my opinion) I still downloaded book 3 because I need to know how this car crash ends.

    I shamelessly admit that Terri E. Laine totally got me hooked on the King Maker series!!! It's one of the best I ever had the pleasure to read. And I'm not easily impressed to be honest! I knew after reading Money Man that I've found a new obsession. That story was a bookworms dream come true. I was deeply invested in the two main characters Bailey and Kalen and couldn't wait to find out how their story continues. The challenge with every series is to keep readers interested and deliver a sequel I shamelessly admit that Terri E. Laine totally got me hooked on the King Maker series!!!

That story was a bookworms dream come true. I was deeply invested in the two main characters Bailey and Kalen and couldn't wait to find out how their story continues. The challenge with every series is to keep readers interested and deliver a sequel that lives up to the first installment. Terri E Laine easily achieved that! Queen of Men picked up exactly where we were left after Money Man. So be sure to read the first book before you dive into this one! After finding out the truth about Kalen, Bailey is heartbroken. Feeling betrayed she runs away from New York to the place she never thought she will return back so soon, home. To her Amish like community in the middle of nowhere, where her parents and siblings still live. There she meets Turner, the handsome and kind-hearted boy she once loved and left behind. The one she shared her first kiss with and many other firsts too. Seeing him again will bring old feelings to the surface. Desperately wanting to forget Kalen, but unable to deny her feelings for Turner, Bailey's heart and mind will be at constant war. It won't make things easier when Turner admits that despite what happend in the past he still loves her and wants her to give them a chance. In the meantime Kalen is missing Bailey. He realizes that he's fallen deep and can't let her go. When disturbing things come into light, indicating that her life is in danger, he makes the decision to find her and bring her back. After all she belongs to him and he protects what's his... I can't and won't give away more from the plot, because you need to experience this story on your own. But let me give you a little warning: your feelings will be all over the place. Bailey wasn't the only one torn between two men. I was too! I simply couldn't pick a side because Terri E Laine made me like them both. Kalen and Turner are both great men, each in their own way. While Turner is the good-hearted, gentle and patient guy that makes Bailey feel safe and cherished, Kalen is the passionate, wild and possessive alpha who awakens feelings inside her like nobody else has ever before. Now after that jaw dropping cliffhanger at the end of the story, all I want is to get my hands on the next book! The anticipation is killing me! Bravo Terri E Laine for giving us another highly entertaining and unputdownable story that won't let readers unaffected. 5 stars.

    I have been impatiently waiting for book 2 in the King Maker series, and I was not disappointed. I don’t know what to say without giving away any too much. So here are the basics. The story continues on directly from book 1. We get to see some of Bailey’s past life with her family, in fact we get to see a whole side of a Bailey I’m not sure I really liked in this book. We still have my adorable Kalen, in fact, if possible I think I loved him more in book 2.

All that aside, intriguing storyline, excellent writing and some great characters introduced into the plot. This book cannot be read as a stand-alone, it is part 2 of a trilogy, and now I’m left impatiently waiting for final book in this series. I have absolutely no idea where the author is going to take us in this final instalment, but I know I’ll enjoy every single minute of it. I received an advanced copy of this book from the author. This is my honest review.

    O.M.G! The long-awaited sequel to Money Man is here and it’s … unexpected… I loooove these characters, though this time I am not sure if I should hug and comfort them, or slap them and shake some sense into them… All these twists and turns… murderous… I loved to see where Bailey comes from, to meet her family and learn more about her background history. What I didn’t love though is this aweful cliffhanger… now I have to wait for the next book in this series… again... darn… Another MUST READ by Ms. La O.M.G!

    This is the second book to The King Maker Series, This is not a stand-alone book and you must read book one. I would like to say like other reviews Terri E Laine is killing me. I don’t like to wait. I do not want to give out any spoilers, We do see a different side to Bailey with more of her family , her upbringing ,and a love triangle. There sex dreams where just hot and steamy . Love to see how Bailey and Kalen story unfolds

    This was so dumb. so un-relatable and stupid. andddddd- another cliffhanger. At this point, with the h's terrible life decisions - I could not care less what the end will be. *SPOILERS* We still don't know, after 2 tedious books, what is Kalen's story. who is the mother of his child ? where is she? what are his secrets? A waist of time and money. I DID NOT get an ARC in exchange for review. This was so dumb. so un-relatable and stupid. andddddd- another cliffhanger.

    Bowing out early. Won't be continuing this series. The events and her choices are pissing me off. so now? i just don't like the character at all and that to me, kills the very joy out of reading a book. if you decide to read i hope you enjoy cliffhangers and chick making choices you too might not agree with. im all for romance books with drama and twists, but not this sort. :( Bowing out early.

    I don't really care for Bailey. She's a selfish, thoughtless whore. All she cares about is her feelings and what would be best for her. She manipulates feelings, gives false hope and doesn't take a second to think about how her actions will affect others. Smh she's a gross bitch. I don't really care for Bailey.

    I started reading this book as soon as I had finished the first book! I liked the first book and it left me wanting more, but it was missing something for me to love it! I was excited for this book though because of the ending to the first book! After reading this book, I can say that that I felt the same way about it as I did the first book! The plot developed at a nice pace and it did keep me intrigued, but it was just missing that something for me to fall completely in love with it! The suspe I started reading this book as soon as I had finished the first book! I liked the first book and it left me wanting more, but it was missing something for me to love it! I was excited for this book though because of the ending to the first book! After reading this book, I can say that that I felt the same way about it as I did the first book! The plot developed at a nice pace and it did keep me intrigued, but it was just missing that something for me to fall completely in love with it! The suspense element also wasn't as big a part of the plot as I was expecting! It was still there, but it was more in the background! I can see the suspense playing a really big part in the third book though because it'll hopefully be resolved! There was also a love triangle in this book, which I felt a bit weird about lol! It did add to the plot, but it ended up making me not sure who I wanted the main female character to be with lol! There were quite a few seriously hot scenes in the plot as well, which were pretty steamy! The characters were again amazing and made this book even better! Bailey was the main female character, and Bailey spent pretty much all of this book back in the place where she grew up! This did change things for her because she had to abide by certain rules and she had to dress a certain way! I felt like going back to her home was the right thing for Bailey because she went through a lot of realisation, especially when it came to her relationship with her father! It was also intetesting to see the dynamic between Bailey and her siblings! Kalen was the main male character and love interest of Bailey! Kalen wasn't in this book as much as I was hoping he was going to be! More of it was written from his point of view though, which I enjoyed! I loved Kalen when he was in this book! He was very focused on finding Bailey and keeping her safe! It was easy to see how he felt about her as well! Turner was another love interest of Bailey and I liked him a lot! He was very straight with Bailey and they did have a history! This book was written from both Bailey and Kalen's point of views, which I was expecting because the first book was written from dual point of view! I loved that this book was written from both characters point of views because it allowed for a lot more things to happen in the plot, which made sense as the characters spent a lot of the plot apart! It helped me connect more with Bailey and Kalen as well and see how they really felt and were dealing with everything! I now can't wait to read the next book in this series! This book was left at quite the ending, so I can't wait to find out how everything is going to progress! I know that the next book is the final book, and I'm really happy that I waited for it to release before reading this trilogy as it would have been a bit hard to wait lol! I'll definitely be making the final book my next read and I can't wait to find out what's going to happen! I also love the cover for this book a lot! It's seriously hot and I love how well it suits the cover for the first book! The cover models are the perfect Bailey and Kalen as well and the cover is perfect for the book!

Then she talks about a scarlet letter S bc she has slept with a man out of wedlock and Runs as soon as the going gets tough in the community and with Kalen. She immediately turns to Turner, stringing him along while dreaming and fantasizing about Kalen! Turner is her first love but Kalen is her forever yet she still kissed both still almost had sex with both. Grow the feck up and quit stomping all over people's hearts! Ok enough about how much Bailey ruined this book to the bad guy setting Kalen up to sending threatening letters and "gifts" to Kalen, what, really?!? This is just thrown in there and no hints/idea who the baddy is?!? No sexy times except dreams, some om on Bailey's part, it's a good thing Kalen loved her bc he's to good for her immature a$$! Another huge cliffhanger but at this point I'm invested! I need to know who the lucky man who wins Bailey as a prize ( insert sarcasm), who set up Kalen and what's up with VI's husband? Hopefully book 3 wraps up all our unanswered questions, shows Bailey in a more favorable light bc right now I don't want her with Turner or Kalen bc she's not good enough for either! And the mystery of the embezzler and why he or she set up Kalen Will be revealed! 2.5 stars down from 5/5 from book 1. Free with K.U.

Or, you could do what I did and purchase all three books at the same time so you could read them as one big book. Easy to do, even quickly, as each book is actually very short. That said, it is a compelling 3-part tale, full of angst (maybe a bit much of that on the part of both the main characters), action, sexual banter, sexual tension, and just plain steam. The characters are all relatable. The proofing and editing is pretty good although I did notice left out words and in a couple places, incorrect words, but nothing that really stopped my progress through the story, even if it was ridiculously divided into three separate books. If it weren't for the maddening cliffhangers, this contemporary romance (not a genre I usually read) would have gotten a 5-star review. If you are more tolerant than I regarding cliffhangers, and if you enjoy steamy romances with HEA endings, then you will enjoy this read even more than I did.

    Before I started the book I somewhat knew what was to come from the end of the first book and was not looking forward to it. It's either because of my low expectations or maybe because of how good the book really was but I absolutely loved it. The writing style and the pace of the book are really well done, the story manages to pull you in without even realizing and you can spend hours reading that feel like seconds. The plot also grows to be more interesting, in my review of the first book I said Before I started the book I somewhat knew what was to come from the end of the first book and was not looking forward to it.

The plot also grows to be more interesting, in my review of the first book I said I was a bit disappointed with the lack of conversation between the main characters and it's not at all like that in this book. Here the story is more focused on Baileys' feelings and her life with her family which I really liked. It is more of a book with some spicy scenes rather than spicy scenes with some plot 😄. Overall I liked the second book more than the first and hope for the third to be just as good.

    3.5-4 stars Arghhh.....!!! I was so looking forward to this second part of the king maker trilogy and I am sorry to say that it was not as good as the first one. I just really can’t like Bailey, she annoys me.... I’m not sure what it is. Kalen, however, is a great character. I found Bailey’s family to be very strange and I’m not sure what Turner saw in her enough to affect his whole life etc... I’m not a huge fan of love triangle stories, so perhaps that is why I feel slightly less enthused by th 3.5-4 stars Arghhh.....!!!

The mystery woven into the story is very interesting and I have a lot of hope for book 3 to bring everything together and fingers crossed I will grow to like the lead female!!! I received an arc from the author and I am choosing to leave a review

    Terri has done it again and left me speechless. Queen of Men is amazing but you must read Money Man and the third book for the whole story. This story starts where Money Man left off. In Queen of Men we learn so much about Bailey's life, her family, Turner and oh how I loved him. My heart was like a ping pong ball going back and forth between Kalen and Turner. At times I wasn't happy with Bailey's actions, but my heart ached for her also. These men - this story = amazing! I loved getting to know Terri has done it again and left me speechless.

Queen of Men has twists, turns. surprises, suspense and left me with lots of questions. Terri's writing always takes me on the journey of the story. She writes with her whole heart and soul, giving me all the feels and emotions of the characters. I can't wait to read King Marker to get the answers I'm dying for!

    I can't get enough I decided that I needed to spend the night with Kalen, instead of sleeping. Don't judge me, he is too hot for words! In all honesty, I did not expect to be so consumed. But here I am, a night without sleep and I have no regrets. Bailey is in a situation that is causing her more and more confusion every day, completely unaware of what is happening a world away. Kalen has made his decision, now he just has to convince his Lass. However, what neither of them is aware of, is just how I can't get enough I decided that I needed to spend the night with Kalen, instead of sleeping. Don't judge me, he is too hot for words!

Bailey is in a situation that is causing her more and more confusion every day, completely unaware of what is happening a world away. Kalen has made his decision, now he just has to convince his Lass. However, what neither of them is aware of, is just how much is at stake. The suspense towards the end spurred me on, because there is no way in this world, I could sleep without answers. Unfortunately, I didn't get all the answers to my questions. Although I did get some, I think I probably left with even more! Oh well, I'm going for a quick nap, then I'm going to read the conclusion.
