In the first Chicago Aces romance from the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series, a fun-loving free spirit tempts an uptight hockey star into opening himself up to love.
As the captain of the Chicago Aces, Marc Dupuis is all business. The apartment he shares with his teammate and best friend, Duncan, is a refuge from the pressures of fame. But when the sexiest woman he’s ever seen interrupts his early morning coffee wearing only a skimpy cami and matching panties, Marc can’t exactly say he minds. Their chemistry is off the charts. Unfortunately, this girl’s no random puck bunny. She’s Duncan’s little sister—and she’s moving in.
Lovey Armstrong could stare at Marc’s chiseled abs and listen to his French-Canadian accent all day. She just has no idea what’s going on inside his head: When he’s not charming her pants off, Marc makes a Zamboni machine seem warm and cuddly. Lovey knows the team’s bro code says no messing with sisters, but all these mixed messages are hard on a girl’s self-esteem—especially since she’s finally getting her new life together in Chicago. She decides he’s worth another shot . . . because if anyone can melt the ice around Marc’s heart, it’s Lovey.

Any romance reader who can enjoy repeated utterances of "Sweet cheese-its" and "Oh, for the love of cheese" is going to love Jamieson's first Aces Hockey contemporary and its Wisconsin Cheesehead heroine. When Lovey Armstrong moves to Chicago and rooms with Duncan, her hockey-star big brother, it soon becomes clear that he still sees her as a kid in need of his protection. Dunc threatens severe bodily harm to any of his Chicago Aces teammates who so much as dance with Lovey. That includes his other roommate, Marc Dupuis. As formula requires, Marc and Lovey predictably hit it off, Duncan disapproves, and foul-mouthed hockey players are jarringly juxtaposed with the euphemism-wielding Lovey. This hockey romance doesn't quite deserve the penalty box, but the clich d plot and the cast of one-note characters may only be palatable to diehard genre fans.
