With an avaricious appetite for stories, Kerri Ann can be found quite often with her nose in a book or writing it. On many occasion it has been said that she’s in her own world, living in the stories of those she reads about, giving them a life they deserve.
She can easily be found under a tree in the shade, or reclining at Starbucks scribbling notes about new stories and new characters, all while keeping the coffee chain in business.
Whether late at night, at a music festival, or sitting on a ski lift, when the thoughts arise, Kerri Ann will add them to those in progress. So be wary, your antics could be in her next book.

Series: Kings of Rittenhouse #2
I love Maya and her stories. I have yet to find one that has not touched me in some way. Shameless King is an interesting read. This one is a slower read for me. This story starts in high school and then heads to the end of college.
Declan and Mak are not friends in any sense of the word in high school. But they want each other, they just can’t have each other. There is just too much keeping them apart. Social pressure, their own issues, and friends.
So we jump three years to the last year of college. Mak is back in town and is finishing school and runs into Declan. When they are made to work together it takes everything she has not to freak out. Declan is not someone that she thinks is trustworthy when it comes to school work.
Declan needs to ace this class or he will be kicked off the hockey team. And he will do anything to make sure that doesn’t happen. But when it comes to working with Mak he doesn’t know if he can do it. She is to stress, doesn’t like to have fun and takes everything too seriously.
But sparks start flying when these two finally start showing their feelings. But will they both let their past and future get in the way of their feelings for each other?
So I want to say that I enjoyed this story, I really did. But it gave me different feelings. I liked both characters but at the same time, I wanted to slap them. But I guess it is their age. I am hoping that Maya gives us more of these characters and that Mak and Declan are there also.
