A Charming New Read from Nicole Helm!!
Dan is nearing the time in his career when NHL players are expected to retire, and he is looking for something to move onto after he's played his final game. His grandfather encourages him to visit the old family ranch and see if it would be something that would fit into his future plans. Dan is a little apprehensive since it is something he knows very little about, but decides to take his grandfather up on his offer and make a visit to the Montana ranch. Once he is there his belief that he is in over his head is reaffirmed, so he sets out to find someone who can help him get the ranch back into working condition, and gets the surprise of his life when "Mel" turns out to be a hardworking cowgirl. She is beautiful, bossy, keeps him on his toes and has him reconsidering his return the ice...
Mel and Dan's story captivated my attention right from the start, and it was evident from the beginning that they were perfect for each other, even if Mel was a little slow to admit it. It was refreshing to read a story where the heroine could hold her own against a touch alpha male, and I was impressed to see that she managed to keep him on his toes the whole way through. The heated banter between them was not only entertaining, but also help to create quite a spicy little reading treat for me!
This was definitely a memorable first read for me, and I look forward to reading future installments in the series! Highly recommend you add this one to your reading lists, it's sure to satisfy all your reading needs!!
