Author: Maya Hughes
Genre: New Adult/Sports Romance
Release Date: August 23, 2018
An irresistibly steamy college sports romance.
I’m Heath Taylor. Laid back. Easy going. Fastest guy on two skates and chill to a fault. 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.
Sometimes life has a way of changing the best laid plans. And sometimes you can’t stay away no matter the promises you make.
Life doesn’t play fair, but neither do I…

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.
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.
