He’s got every reason to be cocky . . . until a female cuts him down to size.
I’m Dallas Easton, the best goaltender in the league. I make a damn good living playing hockey, and with women falling at my feet wherever I go, why not enjoy it? I get whatever I want, whenever I want—that is, until I come across the one player who gets the best of me on the ice.
When I try to pummel the dude, all hell breaks loose. Imagine my surprise when the helmet comes off to reveal a woman underneath. And not just any woman, but the sexiest woman I’ve ever seen. Callie Davis is the complete opposite of the puck bunnies I usually go for, a good girl with sick moves and a selfless streak a mile wide. I need to make amends, but she dodges me at every turn. It doesn’t help that Callie’s brother hates my guts, or that my agent thinks she’s bad for my career.
But I could care less what they think. I can’t let our little run-in on the ice be the end of our story. Because when I set my sights on something, I won’t rest until I score.
Dallas is a man whore, no shock there, he plays professional sports. Seems they all have at least the potential to become a man whores. However, Callie is having none of it. Dallas is a great guy and all but she's not out to be a bunny.
Callie is smart, has a great job, an amazing family and wonderful friends. She works long, hard hours and doesn't need distractions of the heart. But she mostly doesn't need heartbreak. Dallas could break anyone's heart and has. She's sensible and he's going to have to work hard to win her over.
The thing is.....that's the fun of it. My favorite part of this story is getting to the end. The stuff in the middle is the best. As I just typed that sentence, isn't that the way most things are. Books, movies....life. It's the middle part that is the hardest but most rewarding.
So many ups & downs. Dallas works hard for Callie. He knows she's the one worth fighting for. Will he turn her around? Will Callie take a chance and trust him?
Just wonderful!!! Wonderful story, amazing characters and fantastic writing!!! I love me some Ms. Dover and she did not disappoint at all!!! Definitely a must read!!!!
Very Highly Recommend!!!
Wow, Ms Dover outdid herself again. Will there ever be a book that isn’t just absolutely fantastic? I don’t think so…I was absolutely hooked from the beginning to the finish.
Dallas Easton is the best goaltender in the hockey league and quite the ladies’ man to boot. That is until he gets a run for his money on the ice, which ends up being a big surprise.
Callie Davis has moved in with her brothers which are very protective. Growing up with hockey players she knows her way around the rink and she sure proves herself when she gets a goal past Dallas. Which really didn’t end well and avoids him and his advances.
Whew! What a rollercoaster!! Absolutely loved Dallas and his persistence. I also loved how strong and independent Callie is. I think so far this is my favorite couple in this series. The book was fantastic and had the best storyline I’ve read in a really long time. Oh, and it has HOCKEY!! Need I say more?
