The Game of His Life
Hockey player Ben Westmore has some serious skills---on and off the ice---and he's not above indulging in the many perks of NHL stardom. When a night in Vegas ends in disaster, he realizes two things: 1) it's time to lie low for a while, and 2) he needs a lawyer---fast. But the smoking-hot woman who walks into his office immediately tests all his good intentions.
Olivia Davis doesn't need anyone derailing her career---or her dreams of starting a family---least of all a skirt-chasing player like Ben. But soon he's unleashing a full-court press to convince her that he's the real deal. She's slowly falling for his sweet, rugged charm, but with so much on the line, Olivia has to decide whether Ben can truly change---or if he's just playing the game.
Snow's third Colorado Ice contemporary (after Maybe This Time) is a wonderfully tender and soulful story of two individuals pondering taking an emotional risk against their better judgement. At 34 years old, NHL star Ben Westmore knows everyone expects him to retire soon. He needs to stay focused to lead his team to winning the NHL championship, especially since he choked in his prior two NHL playoff appearances. Then he's hit with a double distraction: a woman he does not remember marrying demands a divorce, and he feels a powerful attraction to her lawyer. Divorce attorney Olivia Davis also feels the attraction, but she dismisses it her hormones being out of whack, as she's just started in vitro fertilization treatments so she can have the family she always wanted. As Ben and Olivia keep running into each other, their minds battle with their hearts. Sincerity and trust push fears aside and they become confidants and lovers, but a paparazzi photo could destroy it all. Entertaining secondary characters add enjoyment as the story pulls readers' heartstrings. \n
