Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn’t afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn’t so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy . . . not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.
As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people–like Alex, who’s been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team’s effort to clean up his image. What she doesn’t expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn’t one to cross professional boundaries–and besides, Alex doesn’t do relationships . . . or does he? The more she sees behind Alex’s bad-boy facade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.”
Alex Crossman is the lead player in the cold fury hockey team. He is known as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink and due to his behavior he is suppose to show her softer side by taking part of the drug awareness campaign. He is not thrilled about it, but via that campaign he meets Sutton, who is not like any other girl he meets due to being a hot famous hockey player. Sutton is a down to earth gal, who doesn’t usually go for the bad boys, but either of them can deny the instant attraction between them.
“I lucked out when I met you.”
“You know you’re extremely beautiful, but when you laugh you’re just stunning.”
I really enjoyed the story overall, even though Alex was too arrogant at the beginning, I really liked how he changed after meeting Sutton. I also enjoyed reading about Sutton’s family, they were so caring and loving to each other. I’m definitely going to read the next book at sometime, can’t wait to dive into Garrett’s story.
