heartless king

by maya hughes

what aurora thought about the book...

It's a bittersweet feeling to know that the Kings of Rittenhouse series has finally reached its end, but what a perfect ending it was! Maya Hughes has captured our hearts with this group of friends for the past two years and it's sad to see them go, but I am so FREAKING happy that they all got their own happily ever afters...

Sexy, uptight and brooding Colm Frost has intrigued me since the start of this series and I have been eagerly anticipating his story because he deserved his own happily ever after, even if it took patience for his one true love to FINALLY be ready for him. His unrequited love for her has only grown over the years as he watched her from a distance since proposing to her...the night she ran.

Lost and broken hearted Imogen Walsh never thought she could find love again after losing her fiancé Preston, especially with one of his friends. The night he unexpectedly proposed to her sent her running, but she never forgot that deep ache that filled her chest every time she saw him.

Five years later and neither one of them has been able to move on. Colm is struggling to deal with life after an injury has sidelined his career (twice) and he discovered that his best friend, Ford and his little sister, Olivia were together. His crazy life is spinning out of control and Imogen might be the only one able to help him find his way back. Neither one of them expected what was to come next (super awesome surprise pregnancy anyone), but together they will discover that life always has a destined plan.

Heartless King was everything I wanted for Colm and Imogen and I am beyond excited as to how it all turned out in the end!

synopsis

Two blue lines. That means not pregnant, right? Right? Oh, sh*t.

Five years ago, Colm Frost asked me to marry him and I ran. I ran from my painful past too raw and fresh to escape. He was the only one who looked at me like I wasn’t broken and made me believe it. He made me feel it.

Now, he’s the hot, angry, hockey player on the mend.

I’m the physiotherapist who’s supposed to get him back on his feet.

I don’t think our night together was what his doctor prescribed, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t dreamt of him every time I close my eyes. I woke up beside him with my body still singing from the way he fanned the flames of my desire, but I couldn’t stay.

His lips on my neck. His hands wrapped around my waist. His impressive...ahem, touch leaving me breathless.

One moment of wild inhibition and it’s come back to bite me in the butt. Kind of like he did that night.

But a baby? Our night was supposed to be a one time thing, closing a door on the future I couldn’t handle.

Will this new bump in the road be everything we needed to find our forever?

Heartless King is a standalone friends to enemies to lovers, accidental pregnancy romance that brings all the laugh out loud, angsty feels!
