Hold Me in Contempt
By: Wendy Williams
Move over 50 Shades, there’s a new romance in town. Superstar Wendy Williams brings on the heat in her first ever, no-holds-barred, down and dirty, romance novel.
Kimberly Kind is trying to get beyond her roots. A successful, beautiful, smart lawyer, she’s finally finding direction in her life and getting out of the streets. But a terrible accident threatens to throw her carefully laid plans off course. Now Kim’s hiding a huge secret… one that could threaten everything.
Enter King. A perfect mix of Justin Timberlake and David Beckham, the man oozes sex and has more swagger than anyone Kim’s ever met. Their chemistry is off the charts. But after passion-filled nights, the intensity of their emotions takes both of them by surprise.
Love was not supposed to be an option. Now it’s the only thing holding them together. When their pasts come back with a vengeance, can love possibly be enough?
I am a big Wendy Williams fan and I was excited for the chance to read and review Hold Me In Contempt. Told in first person, this story is a "very" urban romance tale and is as bold, bawdy, and sassy as the author herself. If you are looking for a sweet romance, this probably is not for you. A lot of the language is rough Big City with slang and grit.
I must say, I really felt for Kimberley and her problems. Family, a cheating-ex, and the hectic pace of her life and law career would push most of us into a tailspin. And the lady has a spine of steel. So what else could possibly happen to her? She meets "King", a wealthy white "businessman." More problems, but they can't seem to ignore all that lightning. And neither of these two are angels, their inner demons cause a wealth of conflict and likability.
This book is a wild ride with a very fast pace. and it seems to be a cliffhanger ending. Will we be seeing more of Kimberley and "King" McDonnell?
