He's a Special Forces veteran making his pro hockey debut. She's a dogged sports reporter determined to get a scoop. She's also his best friend's widow...
Fans can’t get enough of Levi Hunt, the Special Forces veteran who put his NHL career on hold to serve his country and fight the bad guys. So when his new Chicago Rebels bosses tell him to cooperate with the press on a profile, he’s ready to do his duty. Until he finds out who he has to work with: flame-haired, freckle-splashed, impossibly perky Jordan Cooke.
The woman he should not have kissed the night she buried her husband, Levi’s best friend in the service.
Hockey-stick-up-his-butt-serious Levi Hunt might despise Jordan for reasons she can’t fathom—okay, it’s to do with kissing—but her future in the cutthroat world of sports reporting hangs on delivering the goods on the league’s hottest, grumpiest rookie. So what if he’s not interested in having his life plated up for public consumption. Too bad. Jordan will have to play dirty to get her scoop and even dirtier to get her man. Only in winning the story, she might just lose her heart..
Levi Hunt is the newest addition to the Chicago Rebels. A special Forces veteran He's a little old to be a rookie but he here now and hopefully ready. Jordan Cooke is trying to make a name for herself as a sports reporter. Her big chance comes when she's tasked to write a profile on the new rookie. Problems is Levi and Jordan know each other. Jordan's husband was Levi's best friend in the military and was killed in action. I liked Levi and Jordan well enough but this story was to all over the place for me. To much going on. It took me a while to read this. What saved it for me was all the secondary characters. I couldn't believe Jordan would ever leave her laptop where the competition could see it. Levi aggravated me with the idea he wasn't good enough for her. It's just old. It was a ok story for me but nothing i would reread over and over.
