CORINA’S REVIEW

 

Wowzer!! This book was addicting!

Another new to me author, Maya Hughes managed with Shameless King to add to my continued progress of crawling out of this week long book funk.

If you love the Royals by Erin Watt or Fallen Crest High by Tijan, you’ll love Shameless King, book 1 of Kings of Rittenhouse. It had all the important hallmarks of an amazingly addicting NA college series.

Enemies to lovers ✔

NA emotional turmoil ✔

Hot hockey athletes ✔

Campus swoons ✔

Cast of fascinating characters ✔

Declan McAvoy and Makenna Halstead were like fuel on fire – combustable. Both knew how to push each others buttons and they did it fervently and frequently to my delight. There was never a doubt that they had chemistry. Both just never entertained the idea of them as a couple until they got to know each other better by being forced to be lab partner for one semester.

When they finally succumbed to the incessant sexual sizzle they set the pages on fire. I’m not kidding here – those two couldn’t get enough of each other and I was right there with them.

HOTNESS ensued!!!

I loved Dec and Mak, together and as individuals. Dec wasn’t the typical jock, he was smart and not as over the top alpha as jocks are often depicted. He genuinely liked Mak, even if they drove each other bonkers. And Mak was complex and way more mature than others her age. The responsibility that she took on herself would have crushed her peers, and I genuinely felt for her. Together they made an awesome couple.

The author took her time establishing Dec and Mak’s background story as well as introducing a fascinating cast. And it didn’t take long for me until I was hooked. A couple cast members already demand their own story, and the way the author set it up, it will be an epic storyline. Interwoven, with connecting timelines, as well as engaging characters that entertain and fascinate – this series is a MUST READ for me.

Because of all of that, this NA college romance easily kept me flipping pages until the very end. And I honestly CAN’T WAIT to read the next book in this series. I have so many questions about the rest of the cast that the wait is going to kill me – of course, only in the best of ways.


BLURB

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…

GOODREADS


Maya has always loved romance novels, one look at her Kindle will confirm that. She started writing her first romance novel while pregnant with her third child. One of her best friends said she should go for it and she hasn’t looked back. Now her romance writing addiction has replaced her romance reading addiction.

You can find her writing on her foldable keyboard and phone anytime inspiration strikes. She feels super weird talking about herself in third person. I write stories about characters with flaws and painful pasts, so I can heal them with my words and bring them together with their perfect match. The path is paved with love, laughter and lots of steamy nights!
