Tessa Chauncy is the best kind of trouble. Beautiful, sweet and completely off limits. I've sat by and watched other men drool after her and forced myself to stay in check. Hey, I'm in the NHL... I have self-control in spades.
Except when it comes to her.
With the bat of her lashes and quick whip of that sharply pointed tongue Tessa can knock grown men to their knees. I've seen them wither and crumble under her confident stare— something I'm pretty sure she learned from sparring with me, thankyouverymuch.
But I'm not just falling for her. I'm down for the count.
She's the girl I wanted, when wanting her was wrong.
She's also my new roommate--
And oh yeah, my best friend's little sister.
Heaven help me, I'm probably going to get his fist to my face or his hockey stick shoved in very dangerous places for what I'm about to do, but I don't think I care anymore.
I'm in love with my best friend's little sister….and I'm done waiting.

Tessa and Jason
Jason Taylor, first line player of the Ice Kings Hockey team, has wanted Tessa for as long as he can remember. But it’s never been the right time. He was either too busy building his career or Tessa was unavailable. First she was too young, he was just starting his NHL career, then she was engaged....Now she’s visiting her brother and he’s not stepping aside and missing out on the opportunity to woo Tessa. He helps to find her a job and even offers up his extra bedroom until she gets back on her feet. But it won’t be easy to win her heart as she’s just broken off her engagement. Oh, she’s also his best friend and teammate’s little sister.
Tessa has just arrived home from work to find all her belongings GONE. Her former fiancé has stolen everything, including what little she had in savings. Tessa turns to her brother for comfort and he flies her out for a visit. While there, Tessa’s life-long crush, Jason drops hints that he may now see her as more than her brother’s little sister. Tessa, however, isn’t easily persuaded as her ex has really ruined her trust in men.
Jason is fun, flirty, caring, sexy—ALPHA all the way! He sometimes steps in without thinking and doesn’t always allow Tessa to work out her problems on her own, but he’s a quick learner. Their chemistry was sizzling! I loved that Tessa’s brother was so supportive of their relationship. Although this is a “hockey” novel, it was really more of a “best friend’s little sister” novel. LOVED it! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.
Another Ice Knights Win!
The first two books in this series solidified my fandom of the Ice Knights but Jason's story let us see another side of this team, their families. Jason's brother was book one in this series and I basically fell in love with his family. This book let us visit with them a little more and get to see the friendship that Jason has with brothers and Tessa's brother.
Tessa is such an amazing person. She's really been through it but she's coming out on top. Her ex is the worst kind of person and the only thing I wished had been seen in this story was that awful person's comeuppance. Jason was definitely swoonier (<-- new word, maybe?) than I expected him to be. He was sweet, caring, and ready to swoop in and do whatever he had to to get Tessa to stay.
Parts of this book absolutely broke my heart but it made me even more excited for more Ice Knights in the future. There's so many more members of this team family that deserve their HEA!!
