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…

Maya Hughes has always loved romance novels. One look at her Kindle is confirmation. She started writing her first romance novel while pregnant with her third child 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. Her sweet and steamy stories range from rockstars to small towns and everything in between. When she’s not writing, she’s playing with her three kids, running errands or vegging on the couch with the love of her life and biggest fan, her husband.

This steamy sports romance was just what I needed this weekend! It is a quick easy read about high school enemies who then stumble into each other in college years later. They both have secrets and hidden feelings from the other. It is definitely a slow burn, and at times I was like “just kiss her already!” AGH….but the wait was worth it.
Declan McAvoy was the high school hockey team captain who is now the star player in college. He is a big dose of YUM….athletic, built, smart, a charmer, cocky flirt, and driven. His family past is the catalyst for him to finish college and make it in the pros; but he keeps his deeper insecurities to himself…until Makenna comes along.
Oh this girl Makenna…she is as uptight as they come. She’s a perfectionist, brilliant, beautiful, and a bit of a control freak. Ok a lot of a control freak. She keeps to herself besides a few close friends, and is determined to succeed more for her parents and brother, than for herself. She carries a lot on her shoulders, and I felt badly for her for a good part of the book. She just can’t seem to Let Go.
When Declan & Makenna are together it is such hot chemistry. Their banter. Their debates. Their arguments. The push and pull of their fleeting touches. GAH they drove me nuts for a while. But it is so worth it once they figure out exactly how perfect they are for one another. They just balance each other out.
This story is sweet, funny, steamy, and has fab secondary characters – I can’t wait for the other King books! Well done Maya Hughes! I’m a fan!
