‘No one has ever been so raw with me. Poppy…I think maybe you see something in me that I never even knew was there. And…I think maybe I see the same thing inside you.’ – Kingston Phillips
Kingston Phillips is a gorgeous player with a weakness for women, booze, and brawls. He lives his life in fast forward with zero cares in the world. Soccer comes easy to him, being the child of two of the greatest players in the world, that shouldn’t surprise anyone, but he doesn’t take it or his life seriously.
Enter Poppy Raymond. She is a world famous model, and she doesn’t have time for the resident bad boy, who she quickly learns lives in the flat next door to her new one. She tries her best to avoid Kingston, but the more he inserts himself in her life, the harder he is to ignore. As the two get to know each other better, both realize there is more to the other than meets the eye. Can the two move forward from pasts that have shaped them, or will they continue to let their pasts rule their futures?
Carrie Aarons, I swear every new book she writes is better than the last one (trust me they are all amazing but you get my drift). ‘The Lion Heart’ is a book about two lost souls just living day by day, and there is darkness but also so much light and hope. I think that Kingston is one of my favorite characters from all of Carrie’s books. This book shows that no matter the fame and money, life isn’t all rainbows and unicorns. I love that Carrie doesn’t shy away from tough topics, she writes about them in a way that will leave you breathless. Sports Romance is also one of my favorite genres so getting to read a book by one of my favorite authors in my favorite genre was just icing on the cake. This book is a must read!
