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…

Review


“You know, you two are always needling each other. I think you’re probably a lot more alike than you think.” His blond hair hung down over his eyes a bit. “Declan and I have nothing in common. Never have. Never will.” “Maybe. Maybe not. See you around, Mak.”

First of all bless Maya's heart for reaching out to me to read her book. I am so so glad she did! I would have missed out on a true masterpiece and that would not have been okay.. I needed to have met the KINGS! She created a perfect new and addicting sports world for me and I know for a fact this series will be one of those that will take over my life, I just know it. All of the Kings already stole a piece of my heart and we barely got a taste of them. So I know that with every book Maya pops out in this series, I'm gonna fall a little (probably a lot) more for each and every one of these guys.
At this point I'm already dying and praying for more. And of course the one I'm most excited for is the one who will probably come last because anticipation is key and it sure will be the death of me. I'm so so very curious about Emmett and Avery, there is so much more to what went on and I'm dying to know it all...

I don't want to be here spoiling anything for anyone because believe me this is one of those books you'll be happy to know little to nothing about, and then be over the moon about how much it surprised you and exceeded your expectations. At least that's how it was for me. I mean with that blurb you get the gist of the story and it sounds freaking amazing! But there was so much more in this book besides that, so many angles and layers. There is so much heat and chemistry between Makenna and Declan. So much ignorance and misconceptions about each other. But once they are forced together, quite literally, for the whole college semester, they find out there's a lot more to the other than they had always thought. They help each other out, besides the school work and soon they open their hearts up to one another and to a chance at love. And once they do there is so much love and patience, beyond steamy hot sex and also so much swoonness (is this a word? if not, now it is!). 

“You know, you two are always needling each other. I think you’re probably a lot more alike than you think.” His blond hair hung down over his eyes a bit. “Declan and I have nothing in common. Never have. Never will.” “Maybe. Maybe not. See you around, Mak.”

These two will just win you over from the start and then make you fall more in love with them as they fall in love with each other. They were truly amazing characters, and I won't soon forget them (if ever because I honestly don't think it's possible to). You'll finish this book wanting more more more. I never wanted it to end, that's how much I loved it.

“You know, you two are always needling each other. I think you’re probably a lot more alike than you think.” His blond hair hung down over his eyes a bit. “Declan and I have nothing in common. Never have. Never will.” “Maybe. Maybe not. See you around, Mak.”

Shameless King was not only hot, it was super fun and sweet and overall spectacular. All the characters are amazing and you'll just want more of everyone, you'll want to know everything about each and every one of the Kings, the team mates...everyone. I'm so ready for more of this series, so so beyond ready! I can't wait to see where Maya takes it, and I'm dying to know who comes next, will it be sweet Emmett, mysterious Colm, intriguing Ford or hilarious Heath? 
I'm honestly fine with any of them because I know I'll love them all.
