How exactly has one good deed landed me in the penalty box?
Ice Knights defenseman Zach Blackburn has come down with the flu, and my BFF—his PR manager—begs me to put my nursing degree to use and get him back to health. Of course she would call in a favor for the most hated man in Harbor City.
But when he’s finally on the mend and I’m sneaking out of his place, everything goes sideways. Paparazzi spot me and pictures, plus accusations that I slept with him, fly faster than a hockey puck.
At first, all of Harbor City wants my blood—or to give me a girlie-girl makeover. But then…the team finally wins a game. And now this fickle town wants me with the big jerk twenty-four seven.
Argh. I never slept with him the first time! But no one will listen. Then the grumpy bastard goes and promises to break his no-fan-appearances rule to help raise money for a free health clinic—but only if I’m rink-side at every game. That’s not a deal I can turn down.
But when the team keeps winning, and I realize there’s more to him than his bad reputation, suddenly remembering to keep my real hands off my fake date gets harder and harder to do.
Fallon is one of my favorite female leads in a while. I love that she just is who she is, and that’s all there is to it. She’s fierce and fights for the people she cares about. She’s human and makes mistakes. She’s just a woman I’d love to be friends with. There is this scene when all the shit hits the fan, and she has eye liner on one eye, and I just related to this so much, I’d tell you more, but I don’t want to spoil anything.
And that brings me to Zach Blackburn. The muffins, oh the muffins, it’s too ridiculous and hilarious. Also, I love his dark and messy back story, but with his attitude he is definitely lucky he’s hot. And I do really like when his cinnamon roll center peeks through that bad personality he’s adopted. Which brings me to the Ice Knights–which now have their own series, starting with Parental Guidance that came out on June 17th and was my favorite book this year (read my review here)!! Okay, so Blackburn is a dick to everyone, even his teammates, but do they give up on him? NO. They are a freakin’ team and they show up for their members. I love that, and I am so excited to get all of their stories in the new Ice Knights series.
Thank you so much to Avery Flynn for sending me a copy of this amazing book!
