Luc Richard is the hottest player in the NHL—and it has nothing to do with hockey. His racy relationship with his supermodel ex set the tabloids on fire but nearly put his career on ice. To avoid being traded, Luc agrees to take a break from the spotlight—and from women—and spend the off-season at home in Silver Bay, Maine. It’s the perfect plan . . . until he reconnects with Rose.
Rose Caplan is tired of being shy, sweet, and safe. She’s ready for passion, romance—and Luc. Having loved him longer than she can remember, she’s finally ready to prove she’s not the same innocent little girl he once knew. Off the ice Luc doesn’t do games, but this new Rose makes him feel like playing a little dirty. If he’s really got a shot at her heart then he’s not just playing to win. He’s playing for keeps…
I love this series by Victoria Denault! I really enjoyed the first book, ONE MORE SHOT, and I was pleasantly surprised that this book was even better. It was easy to get right back into the story with very little trouble.
Even though this book is part of a series, it can easily be read as a standalone novel. The writer does an excellent job of bringing the reader up to speed without taking them away from the story for the recap. The backstory is seamlessly introduced.
I love the characters, Rose and Luc, and you can’t help rooting for them to find true love. They both have a lot of growing up to do and it was great watching them find their way. The story was well written, fast moving, and engaging. The reader is caught from the very first page. Definitely recommend this book! Five stars
