I’m Maddox Ledger, all-star winger and the reason the Charlotte Strikers killed it in the playoffs. Yeah, the tabloids like to call me arrogant. A real hothead. All I see is a guy who plays to win. Wreaking havoc on the ice, breaking a few hearts—that’s all just part of the game. And I’m sure as hell not sitting on the bench.
When my teammate asks me to be in his wedding party, I can’t refuse—but that’s the only way you’ll see me walk down the aisle. Commitment is for suckers. Lucky for me, the bridesmaid I’m paired with is the definition of eye candy. Lacey Easton is totally irresistible . . . and weirdly familiar. A glimpse of bare shoulder takes me back to a steamy Vegas night I can’t forget. One I’m eager to repeat.
Suddenly our one-night stand is turning into the sequel . . . and so much more. Still, Lacey’s keeping secrets. She doesn’t trust me. And maybe I deserve it. But there’s no chance I’m letting her get away—or letting another guy take what is mine. This time, I’m playing for keeps.
|In the last book, you got just a hint of something that might have gone on between Maddox Ledger and Lacey Easton. Lacey is the sister of his teammates, but not everyone likes Maddox. The secret that they shared is now coming to light at least for the two of them because they are in the wedding party of her brother and Maddox cousin who is getting married. Lacey believes that he does not know or remember anything and is surprised by the fact that he does and he is now pushing the issue. When she says no and the season ends with a loss in the finals no one can find him for months and Callie his cousin, who married her brother and knows their secret calls asks her if she could find him. She has an idea where he is and after finding him, she agrees to give him a chance. The rest of the story is really him proving himself to her and trying to ease her insecurities of him cheating. This is not helped by a teammate and a friend of hers who also likes her and she does not see that he wants something more until he shows himself as someone who is only trying to break them up and not giving Maddox a chance. Overall I liked the book. I like the action of hockey in the story and the characters were all good. A good book to go with the series. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 4 stars.
