On the ice, I’m Kellan Carter, powerhouse enforcer for the Charlotte Strikers. Off the ice, I’m just a regular guy. The last thing I want is to get mobbed by a bunch of groupies who are only after me for my fame and money. My ideal woman knows how to enjoy a little good, clean fun—and maybe some not-so-clean fun too. That’s the kind of girl I’d never let go.
When Kristen Robinson, the gorgeous, down-to-earth bartender I’ve been crushing on, agrees to let me take her out, I’m thrilled. We have an amazing night together, culminating in the most electrifying kiss of my life—and that’s it. Kristen tells me we can’t see each other again, but I know that kiss meant as much to her as it did to me. What I don’t know is that Kristen has a dangerous secret. . . .
I’ve proved to Kristen that she can trust me with her body and her heart. But when her past comes back to haunt her, I need to prove that she can trust me with her life. And I might have to get my hands dirty after all.
|I liked this book but I will say first for people that this story is very little to do with hockey and more to do with the lead female in the story. Kristen is with a man who is older and when she finds out from her friend that he is not going to leave his wife she thinks it will be easy to walk away. Not because he is one of those men who is very controlling. When her friend ends up dead she needs to leave town but she also needs to fake her death. She ends up in Carolina working in a bar. After a year she is finally feeling safe and decides to go out on a date with one of the local hockey players. Turns out Kellan Carter the captain of the team is overjoyed that she finally agreed to a date. He also knows that something is definitely wrong because she does not like to have her picture taken along with some other things that are strange for him. Though she goes to some of his hockey games the story comes full circle back to her when the man comes back into the picture to make their life unbearable. There are some twists and turns that add to this story, but I found this to be more of a mystery with some hockey thrown in. For me, that was not a problem but it might be for some people. Overall I liked the characters and it was a good story. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars. Follow us atwww.1rad-readerreviews.com|
