My d*ck never got me in half as much trouble as my heart...
We were high school sweethearts. I was head over heels for her and no one could tell me we weren’t going to last forever. College? Going pro? My family’s money? None of it mattered. She was all I needed.
Then she ripped my heart out. But I’m not going to let that happen again.
She’s back. Invading my life and acting like she was the wronged one. The pain is still there, but I can’t keep my eyes off her. I can’t stop thinking about her and how much was left unsaid between us. Being this close is making me question everything I thought I knew about her.
This time everything will be on my terms. Everything…

I’ve been wanting to get my hands on Emmett and Avery's story from the minute I read Shameless King and this was more than what I could’ve hoped for. I have a weakness for second chance romances and when we were given a little bit of the background in book 1, I knew that this story was going to be filled with drama, heartache, and redemption and I was so on bored for this journey!!

Good looks, women, endless wealth, you name it and Emmett Cunning has it. Life is not too bad for this twenty three year old who has the world at his feet, or so it seems. Four years ago his world was ripped apart by the one person he trusted and loved whole heartedly only to get torn apart in the process. Not only did he lost the woman he loved from an unforgivable act, but his heart was never the same again. But what happens when the one woman who’s inflicted so much pain, suddenly comes back full force?

“I never stopped loving you. Even when I hated you with all of my being, even when I hated myself for it and wished I could carve my heart out of my chest, I still loved you”. 

Avery Davis has spent the last four years doing everything for her little sister and making sure she goes off to College. From paying all of the bills, working twice as hard, and providing the best emotional support, she has done it all. Now that her sister is safely away at school, Avery can now focus on her own career and personal life with her friends. When a trip is suggested to help her relax and have fun with her old friends, she takes it. Unbeknownst to her, that trip is going to change her entire life and reunite her with an old flame who wants nothing to do with her.

This was a nice second chance romance and I loved that this Author showed not only a strong heroine who had no problem standing up for herself, but she made the Hero likable and showed his vulnerability when it was necessary. Emmet was extremely successful in his Hockey career but that was not the most important thing to him. He cherished his friendships, wanted a close knit family relationship, and the one girl who he’s loved for a long time to be back in his arms. He was one of a kind and his strength and generosity knew no bounds and I really liked that about him. 

If you’re like me and you love second chance and sports romance, then this book needs to be on your list.
