This wasn’t my favorite Maya Hughes. And I believe that it was simply on a personal level. I liked the story in all its different aspects, but something felt a little bland to me. I didn’t really connect with either Colin or Imogen’s characters. There was a lot of back and forth and it seemed like they were only together for a very small position of the book.
I liked the way Maya Hughes dealt with pain of losing people in this book. I didn’t disagree with Colm and his aversion to Ford and his sister’s relationship and how he felt almost betrayed by them both. I got that and I enjoyed that story arc. And I also liked how loyal Imogen was to her late boyfriend. It was a hard thing to feel emotions and things for someone else after losing someone so important.
But they were both EACH simultaneously stuck and running away from problems through the whole book. It was dizzying, but I am glad to have read this.
Thank you to Maya Hughes for providing me with an arc of this book in exchange for my honest review.
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!
