He’s supposed to be the ruler of this kingdom.
The prince poised to take his rightful place on the pitch.
Instead, he plays the jester, shunning his legacy.
Only I am privy to his lion heart.
Kingston Phillips is the heir to England’s football dynasty. The offspring of two of the world’s greatest players, the expectations set on his shoulders could crush the universe. But the golden-haired Adonis chooses to live his life as a game; a series of nightclubs, brawls, pranks and different kit chasers parading through his sheets.
I’m the last woman he should chase, and I’ve told him so. My cheeky mouth and icy demeanor guard the secret no one can learn. But when the Casanova I’ve been avoiding becomes the bloke next door, he quickly begins to thaw the frost around my heart. Kingston shows me the ferocious, loyal, protective side of himself that no one else gets to witness.
I begin to realize that he’s just as damaged as I am.
That as much as I try to deny it, we’re the same.
And … that might just be our undoing.

Kingston is the star soccer player who comes across as arrogant but there is far more to the man than appears. He has inherited the skill from his parents but is also weighted down by their expectations. As a result, he chooses to take control where he can and that is by pretending it doesn’t matter and earning a reputation as a playboy.
From the outside looking in Poppy appears to be living a charmed life as she is a successful model with financial security. When she and Kingston become neighbors, she is determined to keep her distance but Kingston is more determined, and he shows her by word and actions that he was a man she could depend on and trust.
This is a sweet and sexy story between two people who both have painful pasts and have created an image to protect themselves. As they see below the surface, they accept each other faults and all, and couldn’t be a better match.
