He’s supposed to be the ruler of this kingdom.
The prince poised to take his rightful place on the pitch.
Instead, he plays the jester, shunning his legacy.
Only I am privy to his lion heart.
Kingston Phillips is the heir to England’s football dynasty. The offspring of two of the world’s greatest players, the expectations set on his shoulders could crush the universe. But the golden-haired Adonis chooses to live his life as a game; a series of nightclubs, brawls, pranks and different kit chasers parading through his sheets.
I’m the last woman he should chase, and I’ve told him so. My cheeky mouth and icy demeanor guard the secret no one can learn. But when the Casanova I’ve been avoiding becomes the bloke next door, he quickly begins to thaw the frost around my heart. Kingston shows me the ferocious, loyal, protective side of himself that no one else gets to witness.
I begin to realize that he’s just as damaged as I am.
That as much as I try to deny it, we’re the same.
And … that might just be our undoing.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is all about appearances. What you show to the outside world. What everyone thinks about you. How you present yourself to them. And who you really are. It takes all of these, and really shows that you should take appearances at face value. Very few people are who they present in public. And these two characters highlight that fact.
Kingston is a legacy soccer player. He comes from some of the best in the world. And by all appearances, he is living that life to the fullest. He is a player, a partier, living life in the fast lane. He has no cares in life, takes nothing seriously. But on the inside, he really isn’t like that. The face he presents in public doesn’t portray accurately who he is.
Poppy seems to be at the top of her game. She is a model, constantly on the go, surrounded by people, independent, and happy. But in reality, she’s a loner. She doesn’t have the time or the inclination to deal with a play boy soccer player.
These two were drawn to each other from the beginning, but resisted. This is a very slow burn romance, with plenty of heat simmering in the back ground. I enjoyed this book, but not as much as Book 1. (Kingston kind of rubbed me the wrong way, I guess!) It’s definitely worth reading, a good continuation of the series, and I’m definitely looking forward to the next book!
Author of romance novels such as The Tenth Girl and Privileged, Carrie Aarons writes books that are just as swoon-worthy as they are sarcastic. A former journalist, she prefers the love stories of her imagination, and the athleisure dress code, much better.
When she isn’t writing, Carrie is busy binging reality TV, having a love/hate relationship with cardio, and trying not to burn dinner. She lives in the suburbs of New Jersey with her husband, daughter and Lab/Great Dane rescue.
