Read my Book Review
Release Date: October 10, 2017
Genre: Contemporary. Sports Romance.
I ADORED this book. In fact, there wasn't one thing that I didn't like about it! I am once again reminded why this series is so popular and loved by sports romance readers. It's got everything going for it- a bad ass hockey player that won't settle down until he FINALLY meets his match, and a woman who discovers that sometimes it's okay to tame the beast in the name of love. The banter between these two is GREAT, the lusty parts are SUPER HOT, and the buildup to the HEA is everything I wanted and more.
I sincerely hope this isn't the last book we see from this series because it's got everything going for it and I would love to read more in the future. Fans of sports romance, grab you copy of this HOT and FEISTY read. You may just fall in love...
PS: I wanted to add that YES this is the sixth book in the series but it can standalone!
Read an Excerpt
I look around at Alex’s sparse apartment. There’s a sectional, an ottoman, but no chairs, bookcases or pictures. The nook for his bedroom only contains one three-drawer dresser. His bedside lamp is on the floor beside the bed because it doesn’t have night tables. “You don’t seem to like things.”
He shrugs, and those deep blue eyes find mine. “I don’t have a lot of things from my past worth holding on to.”
Oh, this man… I reach up and gently cup the side of his face. He grasps my hand and I think he’s going to pull it away, but he doesn’t. He holds it to his face and pushes into it. He’s like a puppy looking for love, and I want desperately to give it to him. But he won’t let me.
“And you seem to want to throw away things now that are worth holding on to.” I force myself to step back and start walking toward the front door because if I don’t leave now I’ll let things happen that are going to mean more to me than they should. Than he wants them to. But his words stop me in my tracks.
“I don’t know how to be a boyfriend, Brie.” The look of pure confusion on his face would be comical if we were still talking about his inability to run a dishwasher. But we’re talking about feelings here. “The only thing I’ve ever committed to was hockey and even it tried to reject me. Hell, in a way every time I get traded, I feel like it still is. But it’s a thing, not a person. Hockey doesn’t have a choice, but you do.”
I start to walk back into the kitchen as he turns away from me to look out the window. “People who have had the choice to keep me in their lives never have.”
Thank God he’s turned away because I actually press my palm to my heart to keep it from cracking. Holy shit. I have no idea how anyone would walk away from him – the man and his big, broken heart –because what I want to do is run to him. “Give me that choice and I’ll change your track record.”
He grunts and turns back to face me. “You’re this amazing, stubborn, gorgeous woman who wants more than the one thing I know I can give. And as much as I suddenly, for the first time in my life, want to try and give more, I’m so fucking clueless as to how.”
I walk right up to him so we’re toe to toe. “You want to know how? You just do it. You let me in. You take the chance, like you do every time you step onto the ice. You don’t know if you’ll win or lose, but you play the game anyway and you take the shots on net even if you don’t know if you’re going to score. So tell me you want this. Take the shot.”
He nuzzles my hand and but then turns his face and kisses my palm. When he turns back to me he looks so serious it’s startling. “I want this.”
I smile. It’s not big, but I feel it inside me from my toes to the roots of my hair. “Game on?”
He smiles back, raw but darkly playful. “Game on.”
