UNSPORTSMANLIKE CONDUCT (Pilots Hockey #4)
Kristen Katsaros wants a life full of adventure and laughter. After a difficult childhood, her motto is to live each day like it’s her last—because it just might be. So when Kristen’s parents send her on a post-grad singles cruise in the Caribbean to meet a Greek husband, she promptly hooks up with the hottest guy she’s ever met. Pasha’s decidedly not Greek, but Kristen gives him a pass because he’s got fun written all over his rock-hard abs.
Pavel Gribov, the cocky playboy of the Detroit Pilots hockey team, can score any girl he wants. But when a teammate drags him on a singles cruise, he can’t resist the chance to help out a drop-dead gorgeous damsel in distress by pretending to be her boyfriend. Before long, the fake fling turns intimate, fueled by something much deeper than lust.
Kristen and Pasha both agree to walk away once the cruise is over, but reality hits like a slap shot when Kristen finds out Pasha lied about everything. Just when she’s ready to start living again, the two stubborn survivors must decide if they can bear to lose the best thing that ever happened to either of them.
Another good story about hockey players and the life they live. Pavel Gribov is a star player for the Detroit Pilots, and is on a cruise with another player who is dealing with his break up. Kristen is on the cruise because it is a singles cruise for Greeks. She is there with a friend and a cousin and a guy who both their families think they should marry because they have known each other since children. She is not attracted to him at all and when she meets Pavel he changes his name and they spend the week on the cruise being together and enjoying each other’s company and Pavel gets Kristen out of her comfort zone. They open up to each other and when it is time to leave she wants to continue after the cruise only to be shot down by him. When she is back in Detroit and celebrating her best friend’s wedding announcement, and who does she met Pavel but she does not know him by that name and when she hears that name her whole idea of him has fallen apart. He realizes what he has done and moves on to the Charlotte team which is the top club only to be sent back down to the minors and back to Detroit to fix his game. Can it be fixed, and when they do run into each other what will happen? Read the book to find out. Another fabulous book. I got this book from netgalley. I gave it 5 stars.
