Release + Review - Heartless King - Maya Hughes

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!

Johnaka's Review 
“Redeemable grouch, 4 stars”

Colm and Imogen have a complicated history, but Colm was there when Imogen was mourning the loss of her long-time boyfriend. Now its time to return the favor. Colm needs to heal from his injuries and get back on the ice. Will Imogen be able to help him? Is this the time for them to act on those feelings that used to be there?

I liked Colm and Imogen. Hughes wrote a solid story. I love hockey romances and even though Heartless King was light on the hockey the elements were still there. I dig accidental pregnancies/surprise pregnancies and there was definitely one in here. If you take a chance on Heartless King, I’m sure you’ll enjoy it.

Jennifer's Review 
Finally! Heartless King is the last book in this series. To say it was highly anticipated would be an understatement. In this book, we get to see Colm in a whole new light. This was a great book!
I will say that the blurb was a little misleading. It is about the book, but I felt this book was different than I expected when reading.the blurb. Not that I minded. This book starts off after the book before ends. While you can read it as a standalone, I suggest you read the others.
The heat in this book is off the hook! These two characters have undeniable chemistry! The writing of the book is good as well. I liked how the author laid everything out for us.
In conclusion, I enjoyed this book. It was a great read! I can't wait to see what this author does next!

The question had been running through my head all night: how could I get her to leave? But I didn’t want her to go. And now the maple syrup and cinnamon taste of her sent me hurtling close to the edge of my control. Those reserves were running on fumes. 
Everyone else had been run off by my anger or blinded by my money, but not her. If anything, she battled me, pushing me like she knew I needed it. She wouldn’t let me hide the splintered and cracked pieces of myself that I was barely holding together. 
She didn’t push me to talk, just slid in past my defenses and got me to say more than I should. 
“Do you want me to stop?” I ran my fingers through her hair, tugging on the roots. 
Her lips parted in a gasp and I deepened the kiss, needing to taste even more of her. She’d teased me, eating that French toast that smelled like a vanilla and cinnamon factory had exploded when it arrived at our table.
She stared into my eyes, heavy breaths shuddering past her lips. “Hell no.”

Maya Hughes, that's me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! :-) I'm a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.
I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.
I'm the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can't breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.
