Emmett’s and Avery’s story is angsty and full of secrets that come out and cause all kinds of trouble for both of them.
I enjoyed reading Shameless King and getting to know the King’s crew. I was happy to read Emmett’s story and have Emmett and Avery figure out their lives.
Emmett and Avery dated in high school and could have made a great life together, but there were too many issues that came between them. Just before graduation, Emmett finds Avery in a compromising position and instead of talking to her and finding out what was going on, he walked out of her life. Four years later they are reunited in an awkward summer get away that could either ruin them forever or fix what went wrong. Too bad the problems from their past are not fixed yet. Will they ever get their happily ever after with each other, or will their past issues come between them again?
I really enjoyed this story and am very happy that Ms. Hughes contacted me and asked me if I would like to read this story. I hope that Ford, Olivia, and Colm all get a story too and I look forward to reading their stories. I give this story a 4.5-star review and highly recommend it to readers that enjoy romance stories with angst, high school love that lasts, and second chances.
