Shameless King, oh how I have found you finally and oh how you got me hot and bothered like a teenager *fans self*.

Mak & Declan have hated each other for as long as they can remember. Mak is uptight and all about grades, while Declan is all about hockey and making the pros one day. After a blow up in high school they don’t see each other again until they’re forced to partner up for a college course. One neither of them expected the other to be in.

Having to work on projects means Spending time together for these two, even though they “hate” each other their chemistry is off the charts. Their hate sizzles with sex appeal and tension. I couldn’t wait for them to jump at each other

Shameless King is a steamy enemies to lovers romance, this book is will have you ready to explode with all kinds of emotions. Happy, sad, SUPER SEXUAL it’s addicting to read! This was my first Maya Hughes book and it was BOMB & Declan is my new bae. I can’t wait to read more of work.

My rating: 5 Stars 





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…
