Meet the Arizona Vengeance, hockey’s hottest new team. They’re burning up the ice—until a one-night-stand with the coach’s daughter freezes one player in his skates.

Bishop Scott, co-captain. Not too shabby, huh? It’s all part of my fresh start with the NHL’s latest expansion team, and that means new teammates, a new coach, a new city, and a big new contract. Basically, I cannot f***ing wait to show my old squad what they’re missing.

But first, I decide to check out the town before the grind begins. Turns out Arizona chicks are totally smokin’, and I’m fortunate enough to meet one who’s looking for the same thing I am: a night of anonymous, unforgettable, no-strings-attached sex.

Fast forward to the Vengeance arena. It’s the last place I expect to see her again—let alone in her own office. Then bells go off and I finally realize who this girl is: Brooke Perron. My new coach’s daughter. All of a sudden, we’re picking up right where we left off, which means our hands are all over each other. That’s when her dad—my boss—walks in. And before I can get a word out, Brooke’s introducing me as her fiancé.

Sure, she just saved my ass. So why do I get the feeling Brooke’s going to turn my world upside down? Maybe it’s because this fake relationship feels way too real. . . .

My Thoughts:

Bishop Scott seems to be one lucky man.  He has a good friend named Dax.  Brooke Perron in one moment seems like a real fashionista and the next she seems a little vulnerable.  I liked the fact that she didn’t want to just ride on her father’s coattails but wanted a job that meant something.  There are a few secondary characters that I look forward to getting to know better.

It was interesting to watch a relationship develop in reverse.  I had no trouble picking up on our couple’s connection.  Some just seem to have an instant heat and that’s true with Bishop and Brooke.  Our author does a good job in developing her secondary characters as well.  They are necessary to the way the scenes flow.  You also see how well she goes about doing that because she was able to create a character that I hated – one word, leech.  But then as I got to see more of her my one word kept changing.

This is when you know the author’s done a great job with her book.  She’s able to create something that affects my feelings so much that I want to express them.  In this case, I can’t decide whether I want to give her a swift kick or a good punch to the…  But she also had me cringe every time I saw this character’s name.  She’s a loud one – she seems to command your attention.  I was happy when she disappeared from the scene because I could see her easily taking the story over and changing my feelings about the beginning of the Arizona Vengeance series.

Usually when you have the first book in a series the story can get a little long because the author uses it to build the world that will become the backdrop for the stories that follow.  This author doesn’t do that here.  No scene seems to drag and nothing seems out of place to what is going on with the characters.  This was a great book to the start of a brand new series and I’m very interested to see where the author plans to take me next.
