Disclosure of Material Connection:  I received this book for review from Give Me Books and the author.  I was not compensated nor was I required to write a positive review.  The opinions I have expressed are my own.  I am posting this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission's 16 CFR, Part 255:  "Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising".

Told in the first person from both the point of view of the two main characters.


New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett hits the ice with the story of a playboy athlete whose winning ways lead him to a beautiful woman with a lot to lose.

Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.

Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who
won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.

My Thoughts:

Garrett Samuelson is at a team party when he meets Olivia Case.  She’s a woman who can keep up with him.  And the author has no trouble in letting the reader know the heat that these two create together.  What I loved about the characters the author has created here is that no one is perfect.  She has created characters that her readers can relate to.  And she also knows how to get the reader’s emotions involved so you may want to get your box of tissues just in case.

Olivia has a great boss and a great job but my smell-a-vision seems to be broken and then my mouth drops open – you’ll just have to read in order to find out why.  I hope you’ll love her boss as much as I did – he’s one character that I’d love to meet.  He also sounds like a great friend and one I’d love to have around.  There’s one scene where, for me, he’s solidified his gold star.

It won’t take you long to realize that it’s more then a hockey team but their also one big family.  Which is one reason to follow this series.  If you’re someone who’s a sports/romance fan or just a fan of this author’s, then this is a book to have in your library.  This is also a book that will act as a reminder as to what’s important in life.  And the only thing I’ll tell you about the ending is that it will have you smiling.  Book one just came out in October and book three doesn’t come out June so if you haven’t read Garrett’s teammate Alex’s story you have plenty of time to get caught up.
