New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett hits the ice with the story of a playboy athlete whose winning ways lead him to a beautiful woman with a lot to lose.
Carolina Cold Fury star Garrett Samuelson never wants to miss out on a single minute of fun. Whether he’s playing hockey, hanging out with friends, or walking the red carpet with a new date on his arm, he lives every day to the fullest. When he meets Olivia Case, he sees someone who’s exactly his type—confident, sexy, smart . . . his next fling. But the more he pursues her, the more Garrett shares a side of himself that other women don’t normally get to see.
Olivia has been keeping a secret. While Garrett lives for the next thrill, Olivia’s not sure she’ll live to see the next day. She’s undergoing treatment for some serious medical issues, and she doesn’t have time for a relationship with no guarantees—especially one with a hot-as-sin womanizer who won’t take no for an answer. But as she gets to know the real Garrett, Olivia can’t help falling for him . . . hard. To reveal the truth would mean risking everything—but you can’t score without taking the tough shots.

This was a great book. Another unique story line!
I also really enjoyed that the end has a flash forward decades down the line and you find out what happened to the characters. That was a great way to end the book.
Touching and inspiring
Did I read the wrong book?
Honestly, I never leave reviews, but after seeing all these great ratings, I just have to chime in. I feel like I read a completely different book.
The story line was just okay -- nothing outstanding, really. The editing, though? Gah. For the love of all that is good and pure in this world, hire an editor. Have your book read by a professional who has a basic sense of grammar and punctuation. The ellipses were KILLING ME. Incorrectly using "that" instead of "who"? That's basic stuff, man. And if I read "bone-melting" one more time, I would have thrown my iPad out the window, gone outside, come back inside, and threw it out the window again.
Maybe I'm picky, because I expect the books I take the time to buy and read to, at least, meet high school grammar and punctuation standards. Yikes!
