My name’s Max Hall, and I need to f***. As a pro hockey player who’s been away from the game for over a year, my libido has picked one hell of an inconvenient time to come roaring back to life.
After my wife died from a rare form of cancer, sex was the last thing on my mind. Same with hockey, the other love of my life. Now, after fifteen months of eating too much, drinking too much, and generally just feeling sorry for myself, I’m facing a steep uphill battle to get my ass in shape and play my way back onto the Chicago Aces.
So I’m not looking for a relationship. Just sex. Yeah, I know how that makes me sound. But the truth is, I’ll never love another woman the way I loved my wife. When I meet a sexy bridesmaid at my teammate’s wedding, I decide to scratch that itch. A fling with Kendra Armstrong in her posh hotel room could be just what the trainer ordered.
Not only is Kendra smokin’ hot, she’s dynamite in bed—one of the perks of being a sex toy designer. Since she lives in New York anyway, we agree to keep things casual, no strings attached. The arrangement is perfect . . . until one of us falls in love. And it’s not me.
|Max Hall is a hockey player and lost his wife to cancer, not looking for anyone or anything he is finally decided to come back to hockey after being away for a year. Now being at a wedding he finds himself drawn towards a beautiful woman. Kendra Armstrong is one of the bridesmaids at the wedding and keeps noticing this man sitting by himself. Deciding to go talk and ask for a dance Max begins to open up to her and when she asks him to go with her up to her room he agrees. From the story does not go where I thought it would. Instead of falls asleep and the next morning embarrassed, she is not. He later finds out that she owns a sex toy company and is impressed by her confidence. When they later decide to spend more time together they realize they have more things to work out than just distance. He is in Chicago, and her in New York. Max still must work on himself if he wants to be with her. A very good story and a story that is more than just sex or just hockey. But about two people trying to be as they say one person or a couple and the hurdles that are in front of them. A very good book. I got this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars.
