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.
The second installment in the Rogue Academy will delight you with its witty banter and strong characters.
Kingston and Poppy have both created a name for themselves in their respective worlds, which often cross. But when they discover how much more their worlds will intersect, life gets a bit crazy. They both come with their prejudices and preconceived against each other, but each of them harbored their own grief and broken hearts. Poppy thinks Kingston is merely a vapid and egotistical player, and Kingston wants in Poppy’s pants…and maybe a bit more. They each bear an armor to protect themselves against the hurt and loneliness.
But they are more alike than what shows on the surface.
“I think we’re all f***ed up. It’s just how we deal with it, how much of a brave face we can put on, that gets us through the day.”
Life can change on a dime, but the quality of your character is determined by how you react in these situations and the choices you make when facing these circumstances. And that is the true test of Poppy and Kingston… Can they make their way to each other, unearth their true selves, and stay honest to who they are and each other?
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.
