DEFENDING DANI (Alaska Blizzard #1)

DEFENDING DANI                                   KAT MIZERA

Professional hockey player Sergei Petrov has had a rough time after the tragic loss of his beloved wife. Playing hockey and taking care of his son are all he has time for; getting traded was not on the agenda. Neither was a sexy, hockey-playing nanny to further complicate things.

Star college athlete Danielle Cloutier may dominate the rink, but off the ice, she’s an amateur. She’s been trying to get rid of her virginity for years, but guys are always intimidated by her strength. That changes when she meets her new boss. The chemistry between them sizzles, hot enough to melt the most frozen of hearts, but Danielle can’t afford to get attached.

Sergei doesn’t know what to do with the beautiful, stubborn woman, but watching her turn his new house into a home gives him a few ideas. Can he come to terms with his feelings before she skates out of his life for good?


        This was a really good storyline.  The first time that I ever read this author but would gladly read her again.  Bedroom scenes for days but the storyline around it and the characters were on the money.
     You have a close-knit Russian community that plays for the Las Vegas hockey team, yet everyone has a home with the two main players on the team Toli and Zakk who lives across the street from each other in a gated community.
     To say the families are tight is an understatement.  Toli has several bother’s but the one most interesting in this book is Sergei who had been playing for Boston but is now been traded to Alaska.  Being traded had never been a problem before but each time he had a wife now he didn’t and now he is also having a toddler, son, Niko to care for.
     He had to leave him for six weeks to go check on housing with no luck which made him even more unhappy.  Now summer so he was home to bring his son back with him.  But Niko’s mom had only passed away sixteen months ago. 
     Niko being just three latched on to his Auntie’s friend and helper Dani.  Calling her Mama D.  So, when she walks into the house Niko goes running to her yelling Mama D.  Sergei already under pressure goes off on Dani hearing his son calling another woman mama.
     The Russian grouch starts flying Dani never backs down.  She held her ground.  What he didn’t know is that she too is a world-class hockey player who was just finishing her masters.  Not only that she had gotten picked for the USA hockey woman’s team in the Olympics.  She played as hard and was trained by her brother. 
     The chemistry of these two is off the charts.  They are cute and sweet too.  Niko keeps them tied no matter what and so nothing’s ever final.
