A deliciously steamy enemies with benefits romance.
Declan McAvoy. Voted Biggest Flirt. Highest goal scorer in Kings of Rittenhouse prep history. Everyone’s impressed, well except one person....
After a blow out in high school, Makenna Halstead and I were happy to never have to cross paths again. Except life has a way of knocking you straight in the teeth with a puck when you least expect it. She hasn’t just returned to my life, she crashed into it like a wrecking ball...into my college kingdom, into my class, and smack dab into the seat next to mine. My new lab partner to be exact.
For years we hated each other.... I may be King on the ice, but she is the Ice Queen. She has no problem calling me out, doesn’t back down, and her piercing blue eyes have me picturing more than than just my arms wrapped around her.
Now we’re stuck with each other, and there’s no getting around that fact that we have to work together. My hockey career hangs in the balance. Problem? Oh, yeah.
I can’t deny it. I want her. More than I ever thought I could want a woman. I’ve got one semester - only four months - to convince her everything she thought about me was wrong.
Will my queen let me prove to her I’m the King she can’t live without?
Only one way to find out....
This was my first Maya Hughes's book, and won't be my last. Shameless King is the first book in the Kings of Rittenhouse Series. I love the cover. This is a great college/sports romance, and enemies to lovers. The story is well written, fun, fast-paced, sweet, sexy, and emotional. Declan and Makenna are great characters, and they share a sizzling chemistry. Makenna is a beautiful woman, independent, hard worker, serious, caring, and supporting. Her past is heartbreaking, and at some point she makes me cry! Declan, a hockey player, is handsome, caring, and supportive. The supporting characters are great, and I would love to know more about them. Jason Clarke and Emma Wilder did a great job with the narration. I love their voices together. Looking forward to listen to the next book in the Series. If you like college romance/sport romance, this one if for you! I highly recommend it.
