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.

The Lion Heart is the second book in the Rogue Academy series and tells the story of Kingston and Poppy. Although this is the second book in the series, it can be read as a standalone. 

The Lion Heart was yet another amazing book by Carrie Aarons! I’m such a fan of Sports Romance and I loved the first book, The Second Coming! The Lion Heart was such a good sequel, and I couldn’t put this book down. I finished it in one sitting because it was just that good.

I really liked the characters, Kingston and Poppy, because they both have been through some stuff and they try to hide it. Their lives seem perfect, but they aren’t perfect at all… I love that Kingston is such a stubborn guy because he doesn’t give up when it comes to Poppy. Poppy seems like a bitch, but she’s such a good person. When they finally get to know each other, it’s hard not to fall in love…

The Lion Heart was such a good book and I love that Carrie Aarons writes Romance with some serious and hard topics. I really loved this book and I cannot wait to read the next one in the series!
