Known as the team loner, Riggs Nadeau gives his all on the ice, but nothing extra off it. A beautiful stranger is about to cause chaos in his very structured world.

As a professional hockey player, people think I live a charmed life. On the surface, I do. But they don’t know the horrors of my childhood, or the real reason that I have custody of my seventeen-year-old sister, Janelle. And that’s exactly the way I like it. They may think I’m a prick because I don’t like to share, but that’s fine. They don’t know me, and they don’t need to.

In an effort to help Janelle get settled in Phoenix and stay out of trouble at school, I set her up with a job at Clarke’s Corner, the local bookstore owned by the girlfriend of a teammate. It’s there that she makes friends with Veronica Woodley, the extremely annoying, arrogant, money-hungry divorcee who I don’t want anywhere near my sister. Janelle insists I’m completely wrong about Veronica, but I refuse to accept that. I have to keep reminding myself that that the gorgeous blond with legs for days is off limits.

Through a series of events, I start to see Veronica for what she really is—an amazing woman who has survived her own hell to come out even stronger. I have to admit, we’re more alike than not and the attraction between us burns hot.

Maybe I was all wrong about my ability to love and commit, but when the past comes back to haunt me, can I be the man that Veronica, and Janelle, deserve?

  • It was ok

    Just ok. Definitely could have detailed extra details and combined sentences…way too many minor details that added nothing to that scenario. Also the author uses the main characters names A LOT….it’s ok to say he or she or not say it at all

    Wow. This book was incredible, goes in my top 15 I’ve read this year. So much going on, so true as to the happening in todays world. The 3 main character were wonderful. The interactions with one another, the emotions and love that existed within the team members, and most of all the “having their backs, when needed. Absolutely would recommend this book TY
  • Crazy Good!

    This was a great story of 3 people (a guy, a girl and his sister),who suffered heartbreaking events in their lives. It kept me on my toes waiting to see how it would end. There’s an unexpected twist toward the end that had my emotions all over the place. Sawyer’s words flowed so smoothly that I had a hard time putting the book down. Between that and all the emotions it brought out (anger, sadness, fear, laughter and hope, etc.), how could I not love this story.

  • Interesting story

    Enjoyed the narration. Both narrators did a great job. The recording quality was good. Nice listen! I enjoy these sweet and steamy hockey romances! I didn’t fully feel the love between Riggs and Veronica, but they do have some good passion. I didn’t like that this was a no strings, no commitment type of thing between Riggs and Veronica for way too long, and not fond of mentions of other women; especially after the leads have already had a moment. I did like the setup of them being a bit of an enemies to lovers scenario, and I like the scenes dealing with the previous characters in this series. They do have some sweet moments with their steamy connection too. I appreciate that Veronica stands up for herself and others. Also, Riggs’ 17 year old sister isn’t annoying, so I appreciate that. Overall, the story was interesting, but I wanted for Riggs to show a bit more heart for Veronica. A good read.
