Anyone but Cade by Penelope Bloom


The second novel in USA Today bestselling author Penelope Bloom’s Anyone But… series turns up the heat and hilarity with a story about second chances and promises worth breaking.

After Cade King cost me everything, I vowed I’d never fall for him again—even if he became rich and megafamous.

Go figure.

Now Cade is back with his billion-dollar company… and his ability to radiate attraction like a tempting Wi-Fi hotspot. Not to mention his tendency to have worse impulse control than a chimpanzee.

I’d be lying if I said I didn’t enjoy it a little when I arrested him for disorderly conduct. Unfortunately, I think Cade liked it a little too. So when he asks for my help, I know exactly what I should say. But something’s fried the circuits in my brain. It doesn’t help that I can practically feel my ovaries humming to life just from standing within fifty yards of him. The bastard.

Still, Cade doesn’t know the first thing about commitment. He lives completely in the moment. I’d need to have a recurring case of amnesia to believe he could change. I guess only time will tell which one of us is the real fool in the end.

Ruthie☆☆☆☆
This is the second book in the series, and I would recommend that you read Rich's story first, as it sets the scene and gives you some background and insight into the men's childhood and meteoric rise. Oh my, their parents were and are just horrible!

Cade is Rich's twin, he has always been the joker and the one who avoids any seriousness he can. Even though Rich has fallen in love again with his childhood sweetheart, Kira, and moved their business HQ back to their hometown, Cade continues to play the field. He is, of course, confronted by Iris, his own high school love. She is not just the one who got away, she is the one who had their chance at a soccer career spoiled by a drugs test failure, thanks to his pot brownies.

Iris, Kira, and Miranda swore to never date one of the King brothers... Kira has failed, and Iris has to admit that Cade remains easy on the eye. However, he is still the joker he was at school – until fate provides him with a son who makes him grow up fast. As Iris appreciates his efforts, and falls for Bear nearly as much as she still cares for Cade, that promise is starting to seem to her like it needs breaking too.

I really enjoyed the banter in this book. Cade really cannot say anything serious without adding a silly remark at the end to lighten the moment. I had a bad habit of doing this myself, so it was reassuring to see it was not only me! Luckily, he learns when it is a good plan, and when it really isn't. That is not to say that only Cade grows up, Iris too gets to understand that maybe her priorities were not exactly directed correctly.

A really good addition to the series, and now we need to see how the last brother, Nick, and Miranda are going to resolve their issues, so I am looking forward to the next installment already.

Showing her daughters that no dream is too big, no matter what anyone tells them, is worth all the late nights, doubts, and fears that come with being a writer.
