My Review: Just a matter of a few days ago, England’s future King was born in the United Kingdom. Maybe this, with a combination of Rebecca Chance’s skill as an author makes this in my opinion the best book she has written to date. With the title Killer Queen’s the royalty theme comes as no big surprise. Lori, Belinda and Chloe are the main characters set in RC’s latest ‘Bonkbuster’. Now I must warn you, that if you are a touch sensitive about swearing or sex then maybe turn away now and try one of my other reviews. Sadly with a Rebecca Chance novel, some opinions are hard to make without one or both of the above.
Belinda was the most loved princess in the world, but was forced to stage her own death and live abroad with her lover having no contact with her children. Lori is an American Olympic winner and falls for the charms of Joachim meaning she is set to be the next queen of Herzoslovakia. Lastly, there is Chloe who is Prince Hugo’s fiancé and learning quickly what it takes to become a princess. Chloe and Lori were wonderful characters who I really liked from the start; however Belinda comes into play at a more sedate pace, later on in the book. The story itself grabbed my attention from around chapter 2 and pretty much didn’t let me go until the very last page.
From the get-go there is an abundance of sex, not just your average “the lights were dimmed as they made love” kind of sex; but the “his hard cock was inside her” kind of sex. In addition, we see every type of scandal possible it seems, secret weddings, runaway brides, illicit affairs and death plots to name a few. For once I really don’t want to go over the storyline, if you want that just read the synopsis. What I will tell you is that Killer Queens is by far the best book Chance has produced. I read it in 2 straight sittings and it had me laughing, gasping in shock, and (at times) blushing like a teenager (hey, you try reading some of the sex scenes in this book, with commuters reading over your shoulder!).
I felt like I was watching a royal version of Big Brother whilst reading this and found that I just couldn’t stop reading. I have read all but one of Rebecca Chance’s books and am certainly not the shy retiring type. What I will say is that one particular sexual preference in the book has me thinking “what the fuck” and then heartily laughing my arse off. All I can say is that I will not feel the same about banana’s for a few weeks after reading this! The story had so much going on that I was flipping wildly between wanting to read more about one character, to wishing I was reading about another, I just couldn’t get enough of it.
Killer Queens is everything a good Bonkbuster should be, and more! There is plenty of scandal, sex, glamour and a good dose of drama. It’s an absolute must read and no holiday suitcase is complete without a copy of this. If you haven’t already got your copy, I suggest you get your pre order in now! Bloody brilliant :-)
