My name’s Max Hall, and I need to f***. As a pro hockey player who’s been away from the game for over a year, my libido has picked one hell of an inconvenient time to come roaring back to life.
After my wife died from a rare form of cancer, sex was the last thing on my mind. Same with hockey, the other love of my life. Now, after fifteen months of eating too much, drinking too much, and generally just feeling sorry for myself, I’m facing a steep uphill battle to get my ass in shape and play my way back onto the Chicago Aces.
So I’m not looking for a relationship. Just sex. Yeah, I know how that makes me sound. But the truth is, I’ll never love another woman the way I loved my wife. When I meet a sexy bridesmaid at my teammate’s wedding, I decide to scratch that itch. A fling with Kendra Armstrong in her posh hotel room could be just what the trainer ordered.
Not only is Kendra smokin’ hot, she’s dynamite in bed—one of the perks of being a sex toy designer. Since she lives in New York anyway, we agree to keep things casual, no strings attached. The arrangement is perfect . . . until one of us falls in love. And it’s not me.

Holy, Hot, Max. I loved this book from the Chicago Aces series. Max & Kendra have the best scenes of the series so far. The emotional ride that we took with Max over his loss & the guilt he felt for having feelings for Kendra was tremendously sad. Kendra ever the strong, determined woman that she could do no strings attached but found out how wrong she was, when she fell hard for Max. I loved the back & forth between them, how they couldn't stay away from each other. I also enjoyed the razing that Max got from Army(Kendra's cousin & his teammate) & Duper. I loved how Kelly Jamieson showed Max's determination & mindset to return to the team & become an active, productive team player. I also loved how Max was with his brother in law Kevin, as well as the fans. Also how Max lost his mind when someone would look at or make a pass at Kendra, was a hoot. I definitely recommend this book & the series. I received this book from Net Galley for an honest review.......Loved It!
