Reckless King – Maya Hughes


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… 

I’d like to thank Give me books promotions and Maya Hughes for sending me an e-arc for this book, it is very much appreciated! So I have already read and reviewed the first book Shameless King and I enjoyed that one.

Heath oh I loved his character in Shameless King he made me laugh so much and with how he teased his friends when he ended up with Kara it was so funny. All the jokes he had made his friends could do some payback. He was a really good character and I loved how he was willing to protect her and he kept trying to especially when it turned out she was his TA I just I loved it, they were adorable together.

I loved Kara’s character! I also loved how she changed what she wanted to do, going from whatever her major was (I’ve forgotten) to writing. I loved it. Kara was such a caring and heartfelt character. I also found interesting the dynamic of Kara being adopted and sometimes the guilt she felt when it came to her biological mother. I loved seeing that dynamic played out for Kara and how she felt about her mother. It was very interesting and something I don’t see often in NA.

There was so much chemistry between Kara and Heath you could practically feel how they felt about each other and how they were together as a couple and not just the sex. The sex was very well written though. I enjoyed their relationship and how even Heath knew in his time of need he went straight to Kara and I loved that.

Also. Preston deserved better. I’m very bitter about this.

I loved the Karma at the end of this book of Jason who has just like hated Kara from the beginning because at first, they wanted the same position. Finally got some bloody Karma handed down to him! He got caught having an affair with the teacher, and I just love it!

Anyway, I really enjoyed this book and its characters and the most important thing to come out of this is EMMETT AND AVERY’S BOOK IS NEXT! I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR IT. I NEED IT. I NEED IT MORE THAN EVER.
