4.5 Button Pushing CROWNS

Lovers of sports romances, prepare to fall in love with the new Kings of Hockey. Not only does Maya Hughes deliver and fun, sexy sports romances with a lovable hero and heroine but she also delivers a host of hockey players I’m enamored with. I’m already desperate for more!

Declan is the hero we love in a sports romance: sexy, confident, a good person, skilled on and off the ice. She really hits all the marks with this guy. Plus, there is an authentic background that makes him sympathetic. We want him to get the girl as much as we want him to make it to the professional league.

Mak is a ball buster. She has her mind set on a goal and she refuses to let anyone or anything get in her way, including Declan. I love watching her challenge him, push his buttons right back, and eventually let loose with him.

This story is fun and sexy, everything a sports romance should be. The banter between the characters and the chemistry between Declan and Mak keeps the story moving quickly. The dialogue will have you laughing, and the chemistry in the bedroom is combustible. The conflict of the story is one readers will see coming, and it explodes rather quickly. However, the resolution is well paced, and where she leaves the characters gives readers the HEA they long for.

Shameless King has launched a brand new sports romance, and I can’t tell you how excited I am for every single story she has lined up. I am definitely entranced with the world Maya Hughes has created.

ARC received in exchange for an honest review.


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…

  1. I love how there was a teaser for everyone’s books to come. Mak and Dec were awesome especially when they were busting on each other. I hope that stays strong in the series.
