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...
I originally read Shameless King by Maya Hughes when it was first published and loved it. It was my first book by this author and it was a great start! A sports romance with an enemies to lovers story, no way you can go wrong there! I was happy to listen to the audiobook when I had the opportunity and Jason Clark and Emma Wilder were amazing as Declan and Makenna. They truly brought the characters and their story to life for me.
Declan McAvoy is a king on the ice. Makenna Halstead is known as the ice queen and all about school. Declan and Makenna have no love lost between them. After high school they were both happy to go on their way. But now they find themselves in the same college and to make it worse, same class they both have to past. Now they are stuck working together.
Declan and Makenna are like fire and ice, but they also had an intense chemistry. They always seemed to push each other as much as they could. But how long can they deny what they feel? When they give in, wow! The hotness factor is off the roof! I truly enjoyed seeing Declan and Makenna go from enemies to sort of friends to maybe more. Their journey was fun and sexy and so worth the ride.
I have to admit I am a huge fan of college romances and add in a sports romance and I am hooked. Shameless King by Maya Hughes was hot and steamy with a great story and characters you will love! This was a great listen and one I highly recommend!
