Rebecca Stravokraus was the premier publicist in the professional sports. She was extremely smart, capable, and could spin a story like a spider spins its web. She also didn’t lack in confidence.
But there was one thing she couldn’t do.
It was the ultimate dirty word, the one emotion that made men, women, and all variations in between turned into possessed, insane beings.
Humanity was not built to love. They were built to work, to play hockey, to fuc—
Cough. To have a great time between the sheets.
That was enough—it had been enough.
Until Kevin declared that Rebecca was what he wanted, until they spent several glorious nights in bed together . . . until she began to feel.
That couldn’t be. Not now. Not in the future. Not ever.
But Kevin had decided on her and if there was one thing she’d learned about stubborn, alpha hockey players, it was that they didn’t give up.
Even though this is number six in the Gold Hockey series it is a standalone and my very first book by Ms Faber. I was quite surprised and can honestly say that I fell in love with Ms Faber’s writing style immediately. This was a quick, fun book that really had some depth to it.
Rebecca works as the publicist for the local hockey team. She’s not looking for a relationship; she’s good at closing herself off. The less feelings felt the better. That is until Kevin shows interest. He’s a young, upcoming star on the team. Did I mention young? He’s stopping at nothing to get Rebecca’s attention! Can he break through her brick wall that she built around her?
I loved the story and how it held my attention. You have an older woman that is well off on her own but didn’t know she was missing something. I loved how Kevin this big hockey star had such a big heart and wasn’t scared to show he had one. In all this was a great story and I need to get with it and start the rest of the series!!

She and her husband also play as much hockey as they can squeeze into their schedules, so much so that their typical date night is spent on the ice. Elise is the mom to two exuberant boys and lives in Northern California.
