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…


College romances have been one of my all-time favorite go-to genres for years now and I am so glad to have discovered this AH-FREAKING-MAZING one from Maya Hughes! Oh and let’s not forget the fact that this story is also centered around HOCKEY! If you look through some of my favorite reads you will see an abundance of hockey romances because I just can’t get enough of hot guys playing this sexy sport! Also have I mentioned that this also happens to be my THE first book I’ve read from this author…I KNOW. SHAME ON ME for waiting so long, but I guess I just had to wait for the tight book to speak to me and WOW did this one do just that!

Shameless King is the first book in Maya Hughes highly anticipated (at least in my eyes) Kings of Rittenhouse series and I have got to say that Declan and Makenna were the PERFECT couple to start it off! These two give us one of the best enemies-to-lovers romance that I have ever read and I could not get enough of their witty back-and-forth banter that made my heart leap time and time again. Their chemistry was off the charts HOT and I was rooting for them right from the moment they met! I seriously cannot stop thinking of these two and how wonderfully beautiful and uniquely original their love story was.

Even though I know that Shameless King is only just releasing, I am already so excited to announce that I am eagerly anticipating the chance of getting my hands on the next installment in this series because I NEED it NOW! Maya Hughes truly has an incredible way with words and I cannot wait to see what she comes up with next because SERIOUSLY…I am head over heels in L-O-V-E with this brand-new series and you will be too as long as you one-click yourself a copy!
