The stakes have never been higher for Carolina Cold Fury goalie Ryker Evans. With his contract running out, he’s got a year left to prove he’s still at the top of his game. And since his wife left him, Ryker has been balancing life as a pro-hockey star and a single parent to two daughters. Management is waiting for him to screw up. The fans are ready to pounce. Everybody’s taking dirty shots—except for the fiery redhead whose faith in Ryker gives him a fresh start.
As the league’s only female general manager, Gray Brannon has learned not to mix business with pleasure. And yet even this tough, talented career woman can’t help breaking her own rules as she gives Ryker everything she’s got. She hopes their hot streak will last forever, but with Ryker’s conniving ex plotting to reclaim her man, the pressure’s on Gray to step up and save a tender new love before it’s too late.
I really enjoyed this book. Ryker is this amazing, amazing guy. When his wife cheated on him with a teammate he got traded to the Cold Fury and met Gray Brannon. Gray is the manager of the Cold Fury and is responsible for bringing Ryker on board. She is also the leagues only female general manager. He's taking care of his two young daughters while trying to keep his game winning streak going. Sparks fly between Ryker and Gray and while it's sizzling hot the pair have a problem. She's kind of his boss in a way so that's a conflict of interest and might get one or both of them fired. Ryker is this guy wanting to do the right thing for his young girls who are just adorable and he and Gray struggle with a relationship they are forced to keep a secret. It's not easy and it can't last this way for long. Struggling to figure out if Gray should resign or Ryker retire. It seems one of those two things have to happen. Slowly the secret of their relationship is coming out as more and more people know the decision on what to do about it creeps closer. While the sex scenes in this book are sizzling hot it's everything about Ryker and Gray outside of the bedroom that works for me.
Can't wait to see what's next!
