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.
Review by: Erin
This story was incredible! I am still laughing at these characters. Violet and Alex are awesome together. They have wicked senses of humor. I laughed throughout this book. Not sure if that was the intent, but I couldn’t help it!
Violet is not ignorant of the hockey player life style. Her step brother is a player, and she briefly dated one as well. He left her with a bad taste in her mouth for all hockey players. But when she meets Alex, all that goes out the window.
Alex has a bad rep as being a notorious playboy. It has never bothered him. Until Violet. After their night together, he becomes hooked.
He is determined to show her that he does not live up to his reputation. He wants her in his life. He will do whatever it takes to make that happen.
Alex is a complex man. He has it in his mind that he has to have the big endorsements to prove himself. He loses track of what is important in his life.
Violet is blunt and to the point. She is also very playful and wicked funny. I was hooked from the start. I couldn’t put it down. Very hopeful that there will be more of these hockey players and their feisty women.
