Reckless king is all bout the troubles that come with a forbidden romance. Heath and Kara’s relationship is lit lighting fast the moment they see each other. It’s an instant attraction that pulls them in and makes them needy and greedy for more through out the book.

Heath and Kara are ready for more but her sudden position as Heaths independent study TA throws them both for a loop. They try to navigate their insane chemistry and having to be professional at the same time or it could ruin both of their lives. They’re both fighting their own demons on top of that which only adds to complicate their relationship even further.

Maya Hughes knows how to write an intense, emotional and hot romance novel let me tell you. Heath is the gorgeous relaxed plant guy we’ve seen in the past books, but don’t let that fool you. He’s intense and passionate about all things, and Kara brings out that passion more than anything. Even though she’s been the reserved study girl, Heaths energy makes Kara throw caution to the wind and do things she usually isn’t brave enough to do. They’re a match made in heaven and Maya wrote them AMAZINGLY!!!

After some serious twists thrown into the book I wanted to freak out and all I could think is “but what? How & why!?” It makes for an emotional ride, and after getting glimpses of Liv & Ford , and Emmet with Avery I am in desperate need of more Rittenhouse Kings!!

My rating: 4.5 Stars


Reckless King Teaser 1.jpg

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…
