Series: Kings of Rittenhouse #2
I’m Heath Taylor. Laid back. Easy going. Fastest guy on two skates and chill to a fault. 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.
Sometimes life has a way of changing the best laid plans. And sometimes you can’t stay away no matter the promises you make.
Life doesn’t play fair, but neither do I…
My ARC Review:
Book 2 by Maya in the Kings of Rittenhouse series, and I was really looking forward to reading this after book 1 Shameless King – this didn’t disappoint, it was a good read – angsty and emotional in places, hot and sexy in others, with drama and heartbreak, love and friendship – this has just about everything going for it!!
Heath is a very laid back kinda guy, his love for hockey, plants and cooking (especially with his mum) make him the perfect boyfriend material! He has his own demons to contend with, which he hides away, always wanting to help and protect others. His love and attraction for Kara shone through, he was determined to win her over, but he was scared of the depth of his feelings for this girl!
Kara was a strong heroine, having been through a lot, she threw up a lot of defensive walls to protect herself. She has goals and works hard, not a very social animal, which sets her apart from the other girls. Her connection with Heath was off the scale, you could literally feel it coming off the pages whenever they met!!
There is a huge plot twist in this that I wasn’t really expecting and that threw me for a loop – can’t say as I’m too happy about it really, it definitely wracked up the angst and the emotional heartbreak, but I’m not sure it was totally necessary for the storyline?!
Other than that I really enjoyed this second book and am looking forward to meeting more of the Kings in the books to come!!
