With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She’s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain—Alex Waters.
Violet isn’t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match.
In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult not to like.
The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.
This book was so much fun! I enjoyed it from start to finish. It was also hot! I liked both characters very much and was actually laughing out loud through scenes.
Who doesn’t love to read about a sexy athlete? Especially one with a super hero penis? I know this girl does!
We get the POV of both of the main characters which is a bonus. I like getting into a guy’s head even if he is fictional. It is the only time I ever get to. I haven’t developed my mind reading power yet. (Any day now, I am sure of it!)
Violet meets Alex when her step brother and him end up on the same hockey team. She is far from a ‘puck bunny’… at least with guys that aren’t Alex. This is why she is hesitant to start anything real with him. He is full of surprises and hard to resist.
This is one book I wish I could go back in time and read for the first time all over again. Helena is one of my favorite authors and I look forward to more from her!
