Review: Reckless King, Maya Hughes

 An irresistibly steamy college sports romance.

Heath Taylor. Laid back. Easy going. Fastest guy on two skates and chill to a fault, at least that’s what they say. Until Kara.

Three nights together and I’m done for. Her laugh, her smile, the way my hand curves around her waist. She’s the one. Not a doubt in my mind...until I walk into my last class of the semester.

Kara, the woman of my dreams, is my new instructor. My hockey season and her career prospects are on the line. One false move--if anyone finds out--we’re both sunk.

On the ice I’m a beast that can’t be stopped, but thoughts of her are throwing me off my game. My fingers itch to feel her in my arms again. But risking everything could ruin what we’ve worked so hard for.

Life has a way of changing the best laid plans. And sometimes you can’t stay away no matter the promises you make...

We finally got more of the Kings wooh ooh! It's no secret I fell in love with all the Kings when I met Declan and I had been so excited to get more of them. I am so happy we got to see them all together again. I am living for these guys!

I loved getting to know all about Heath, he seemed like such a chill guy but there is so much more beyond what he puts out in the world. He has his own demons and they get to him a lot but he always seem to pull through and be there for others in a way he needed for himself. Heath is a truly unique guy, I have never met anyone like him and that does make him special and this book proved how much. I loved him and felt so much for him and what he went through, past and present.

Reckless King started off just right, all the kings together making me happy. Then Heath meets Kara and oh boy the sparks fly, the tension is on fire and then it explodes in a hotel room bed. These two were so perfect together, I loved watching them get to know each other and open up about their pasts and struggles. Kara was there for him through a really rough time and watching Heath react to that tragic event really broke my heart. Oh I never thought this book would make me cry but shit did it. Maya shocked me a little with what happened and I kind of want scream at her a little for what she did because omg my hearts hurts. How could you? Why did you? *cries endless tears*
But I can't deny that it added depth to the book and all the angst to the story and Heath and Kara's relationship too. It just hurts though. And believe me I want to say a lot more about it but I ain't about to give spoilers.

This book was so good. Maya writes chemistry like no other and I just love watching her character relationship's flourish. It's so exciting and fun and I just enjoy it so much. Reckless King was so much more than a simple sports romance/forbidden romance. There was so much to both these characters, so much hurt and demons and angst and then all the stuff going on with the side characters... it was just amazing. I just know this whole series will go down in history in the romance community. It sure will in my book. We are only on book 2 and I already love this gang so much and I couldn't possibly be more excited for all that is next!
Just like in Shameless King we got a lot of hints of the upcoming books, Ford and Olivia, Emmet and Avery. Oh boy I am so ready for that last one. Major breakthrough happened in this book and I am just beyond excited to see how it all plays out between them and how they will get back to each other after everything they have been through. My fingers are hitching for it all.



Maya Hughes is a Jersey girl, no not that kind! And she also thinks it’s super weird to talk about herself in third person :) I’m a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, the music I listen to, and the people I know to create stories that sparkle and shine.
I’m the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can’t breathe and traveling with my family.
