With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. So of course she isn’t interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. When Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.
Suffering from a complete lapse in judgment, Violet discovers just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. Violet believes her night of orgasmic magic with Alex is just that: one night. But Alex starts to call. And text. And email and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts. Suddenly, he’s too difficult to ignore, and nearly impossible not to like.
The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.
I seriously have laughed out loud so many times reading this book, if you need a laugh this is the read for you.
Violet is a wonderful character and i really identified with her, she has a quick whit and is fricking hilarious, her dialogue and inner thoughts had me laughing so much. I think Violet really carries this story, her Beaver, snuffie and MC comments had me chuckling.
Alex is a womanising hockey player but he has met his match in Violet, the banter between the two is fantastic.
The story isnt heavy and the relationship development isnt all that in depth, but i found this book a very satisfying read.
Helena Hunting writing brings great fun filled pages crammed with humour, sexy dirty talk, wonderful chemistry and likeable characters. Well worth a read.
