Shameless King Banner

Title: Shameless King
Author: Maya Hughes
Genre: New Adult Romance
Release Date: June 28, 2018


A deliciously steamy enemies with benefits romance.

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…

I'm always up for a steamy enemies to lovers romance, especially when it comes with some witty banter. This one has that and then some. Mak and Declan never pass up an opportunity for verbal sparring. They really aren't so much enemies - it's more that neither of them really let others in and they both jump to conclusions about the other. Both are driven by events in the past, which is where most of the story's angst comes from. When they're forced to work together toward a common goal, they learn that appearances aren't always what they seem. I liked the close, almost family type relationship between Declan and his team mates. And Heath! Gah! Every group should have a friend like Heath! There are some heartbreaking moments, especially as Mak deals with her past, but for the most part, the book is lighthearted and fun, with some sexy goodness and a bit of hockey thrown in.



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.

Kings of Rittenhouse is just a short prequel or intro to the wonderful characters in this series. By way of senior prom and an end of year party, we get some insight into Mak and Declan's feelings toward each other as well as a few tidbits about some of the other characters. We get a little bit of Mak and little of Declan as the chapters alternate between the two, and from their points of view, we also learn a little about their friends and classmates. One thing's for sure, from what we're told in this quick read, this series certainly won't be boring.
