Genre: Romance, Sports, New Adult
With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She’s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain—Alex Waters.
Violet isn’t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match.
In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant—and quirky—gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult 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.
When Violet goes to her step brother’s hockey game, she meets the team captain Alex. After one night they spent together, Violet is ready to leave it all behind , because she knows how the famous hockey players are, but Alex is not a typical guy she thinks he is. Alex is going to prove to Violet that he is not the player how media is portraying him. Alex is a bit awkward, but really sweet and determined to win Violet’s heart.
Throughout the book I had mixed feelings, at times I really liked the book, it had laugh out loud moments, and then it had moments, which made me roll my eyes. I really liked Alex(even if his hesitation bothered me sometimes),he’s a real hockey playing gem. Violet was really funny, her inability to keep her thoughts to herself could only mean some really funny moments. Of course there had to be some drama, but this case it seemed a bit over the top and unnecessary. If to leave all the cons aside, it was still quite enjoyable and I want to read more about Alex and Violet in the fourth book of the series.
