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

This is really hard to rate. But since there were things I liked and things I didn’t enjoy, a middle of the road rating is probably most accurate. Starting with the positive….

The characters were likable, and I enjoyed them as a couple. I was intrigued with Heath from the previous book. Heath Taylor, 22, was a catch in this one too. He cooks, he knows his flowers, and his favorite movie is The Breakfast Club. This was off to a good start.

He was sexy:

I may just read this whole series just because I love the book cover model of this one, I definitely have a weakness for long hair in men.

I'm seriously greedy for all of the Kings. Heath is just everything, and Maya has given us another couple with amazing chemistry.

"She'd been mine since the second I'd laid eyes on her, and I'd broken her heart."

Reckless King straight up wrecked me. I was so emotional throughout the whole book that I even cried multiple times. I love the story Maya Hughes tells throughout this book. This book is SO much more than your typical hockey/sports romance. Heath and Kara's story was painfully beautiful, in so many ways.

"The hurt you gave was the hurt you got."

Heath is such a broody, emotional, and damaged guy. He has gone thr

This was Heath & Kara’s book.

Heath
Anger issues
Those instances scared the shit out of me. The ones where it seemed to easy to let loose and give into the urge to break shit. Getting on the road in the middle of the night and letting the streetlights wash over me, calmed me down when I was ready to lose it.

His anger scares him, he’s aware of it and tries to control it the best he can.

Kara
Family issues. Mom was a drunk. Adopted family she wants to prove she belongs with them. Put’s their happin

Reckless King by Maya Hughes
“Finding love, 5 stars”

I absolutely adored Reckless King. I loved the whole idea of Heath and Kara. Reckless King satisfied my need for a sports romance but didn’t revolve only around the sport. The characters were well rounded, and I fell easily into the story.
Heath is all about keeping calm everyone but on the ice. He didn’t know that his short encounter with Kara would lead to more. But after one taste he needed more of her. The odds were stacked against them, but

We get our second book of the guys of Rittenhouse. Heath, the laid back, fast one on the ice, the insightful one. First off, this cover....WOWZA!!!! I could stare all day....sighhhhh......

Ok, so back to it...

Heath and Kara meet up one night, there is something that draws her to him and he wants to figure it out. They spend some time together, nothing serious, until it becomes serious. They are starting to develop all the things for each other, but it all comes to a halt when he walks in and meet

Heath and Kara meet at a bar one night and have amazing time. But then unfortunately they find out they can’t be together at all or risk everything. Kara with her demons and Heath with his anger issues makes it even more intense. Definitely sexy,angst and intense at times. But loved both characters and can’t wait to read more to the series. 5/5 stars

Heath and Kara meet one night at a bar. Kaden is getting hit on by girls but he’s not feeling it. Then he sees Kara across the bar and he walks over to talk to her. Kara is just trying to get a break but she can’t ignore attraction. Will Kara go home with Heath? Will their connection last one night or longer?

Heath and Kara overcame obstacles on their road to adulthood to achieve their goals. How many times even as adults do we question our path. Losing a friend needlessly is so difficult. We have all had to face this and go on when we did not want to continue. Imogene losing her soulmate was hard to get through. I felt their triumphs, joy, and heartaches. It does take a connection to others to learn, grow, and continue on life’s path.

I can’t wait to read the rest of the stories of this group of frie
