“Lots of potential in this new series!”
~ Under the Covers
This is a free prequel to Declan and Mak’s story and I’m glad I decided to jump in and read it before diving into book 1 of this series. KINGS OF RITTENHOUSE is set in high school and gives us a glimpse of the life our main protagonists are going through to prepare you for book 1 (which jumps ahead quite a few years to college).
I’m not usually the biggest fan of high school angst and all the drama associated with it but Declan and Mak are going through their own difficult struggles at home and those affect how they interact with others. Everyone is keeping secrets, right? Declan is trying to do his best to make it to the NHL one day and Mak needs to live out her brother’s life goals. My heart went out to both of them. The big issue that happens and causes the rift between them? That had me rolling my eyes but… it’s high school. I get it. Over the top reactions to stupid things, even when it makes little sense and it’s unnecessary drama. Nevertheless, I really liked the two main characters and this one was the perfect preamble to book 1.
That being said, I also really like quite a few other Kings that we got to meet in this prequel and I’m salivating for Emmett and Avery’s story. Lots of potential in this new series!
