“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!

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
