Cam Brickley and his pro hockey teammates bet on everything: who can win five faceoffs in a row, who can do forty pushups in less than a minute, who can eat a ghost pepper without puking. But when his buddies bet him he can’t date the same woman—like, say, the hot blonde over at the bar—for two months and not fall in love, he’ll take that bet all day. Then he’ll laugh all the way to the hockey arena, where they’ll be washing his jock straps for the rest of the season because Cam’s never giving up his bachelor lifestyle.
Olivia Lockwood, heiress to the Lockwood Industries fortune, is used to people using her for her money and family connections. When Cam Brickley hits on her in a club, Olivia’s first instinct is to brush him off. But he couldn’t be using her for her money, since he has more than enough of his own. Cam’s gorgeous and built, and it would be no hardship to go out with him . . . besides, he’d be the perfect spokesperson for the children’s charity she works with. Maybe it’s time for her to start using people.
Cam and Olivia are both in it for something. What they don’t know yet is that they’re playing for keeps.

That plan goes good he wins the bet everything is good until he drops her off at her place and she tells him though dreaded words. She has fallen in love with him, he says no and now it is over. So is his hockey game. Read this book to find out what happens. I like the two main characters and I also liked that the author not knowing used my grandparent’s last name as one of the goalies (Svoboda). A good book and a very good series. I received this book from Netgalley.com I gave it 5 stars. Follow us at www.1rad-readerreviews.com|
