TLH cover“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.

How I Read It: eARC from Author

*Disclaimer: I requested a copy of this book from the Author in exchange for an honest review. All of my reviews contain my honest opinions only and are not influenced in any way.*


This is the first book of the series that I have read, and I don’t feel like I missed anything by bypassing Book 1.

My favorite part of the book was the fact that it was set in England, and you could definitely tell from the writing style which was a different overall vibe than we usually expect from the author.

Just like the rest of her books I’ve read, this one was well-written and pronounced a great, moderately-steam connection between the two while also showcasing the football / sports background.

I gave this 4 out of 5 stars.
