Genre: Sports Romance/Contemporary Romance
The Arizona Vengeance are developing a reputation on the ice as one of hockey’s top teams. But one player’s reputation off the ice might just keep him from scoring . . .
I’m having the time of my life with my new brothers on the Arizona Vengeance. We may be an expansion team, but after notching some big wins, the entire league knows to watch out for Erik Dahlbeck. That’s me.
The only person who doesn’t seem to think I’m so great? Blue Gardner, the hot-as-f*** flight attendant on our team plane. I sure wouldn’t mind joining the mile-high club with her, but besides bringing me lukewarm coffee, she won’t give me the time of day. Whatever I did to rub Blue the wrong way, my teammates think it’s hilarious. After all, we’re used to women flocking to us. #puckbunnies
When I run into Blue back on land, I’m shocked to learn how she spends her time off: taking care of her handicapped brother. There are layers to this girl I never imagined, layers I can’t wait to peel away. And that’s a new feeling for me.
But first I’ve got to find a way to melt that ice-cold stare. Because as much as I try to pretend I don’t care what Blue thinks of me, how can you not care when you’re falling for someone?

Erik Dahlbeck has never met a woman that his charms didn't work on, normally all it takes is a smile and they are falling all over themselves with stars in their eyes. But the latest woman to catch is eye, doesn't seem to take note of any of his hints or flirtations, it's like she is completely resistant to him... and that cannot happen! It is driving him crazy that he has met a woman who doesn't seem to be phased by him or his stardom on the ice. His teammates think it is hilarious that the playboy seems to have met a woman who doesn't want a darn thing to do with him, and they take great pride in letting him know he failed miserably with her. Any other man would have gave up and walked away by now, but no one is quite as dedicated as Erik... Blue has made a mark on him and he is determined to learn every single detail there is about her, no matter how much of a fight she puts up!
From the very first page of this one you could feel that it was going to be one of those reads that hits deep in the heart and lingers there long after the last page is swiped. As always with this authors books you are guaranteed some serious heat, but this one also came with a healthy dose of the feels, it was SO good for my heart too! Erik and Blue were quite the pairing, he was so use to everything just falling into his hands, and with her he really had to put the work in, and earn her time and attention, and I have to say I thoroughly enjoyed watching him scramble to win her over. She really put him through the paces, and turned the tables on him, and it was quite refreshing to see from a heroine. Their chemistry kept things smoldering, the angst was there torment the heart, and the banter kept me supplied in smiles... all in all it was a win-win for me!! Highly recommend you pick this one up, these two will keep you thoroughly entertained from start to finish!!
