Caught on thin ice between desire and legacy...
Scottish-born hockey player Ian Campbell is so much more than a professional athlete and he has the birthright to prove it. But all he cares about is the next championship. Not his law degree and not the weight of the family legacy waiting for him back home; but time is running out on the deal he made with his grandfather. While home for the summer, a gorgeous American stumbles into the local pub and provides him the perfect distraction.
Photojournalist Everly Adamson finds herself in Scotland on the business trip of a lifetime. A past mired in secrets and betrayal fades away when she’s behind the lens of her camera; nothing and no one can take that feeling away. Even though a handsome, professional athlete moonlighting as her knight in shining armor is trying to distract her— and she can’t seem to stay away.
As their summer romance intensifies, neither of them is prepared for the collision of their two worlds. Ian’s family legacy prevents him from trusting her, and Everly refuses to love a man who won’t. The resolution may be more than either of them can afford...
Great story buried in a lot of filler
I really enjoyed the main story line, but bringing a secondary plot with the best friend and her kid added nothing but extra pages.
The end is the beginning
This book signifies the end of the Sidewinders as we know them. Ian is the last to fall, and boy does he fall. Everly is an independent woman, hiding from her past, who is having a bad day when she meets him. She actually has fun with Ian and his friends. She brings out the love Ian has for his history and heritage. So how could she be bad? Well ...
There are things in her past that will cause issues between them. Can they get past these issues? Do they want to? Only time will tell. And with two headstrong, independent people, it will be a struggle.
While I am sad to see the end of this series, I am looking forward to the Next Generation series that spins off from this one. I think there will be a lot more fun, love and heartbreak coming up.
The Las Vegas Sidewinders Ian
This had so much in it. Love, sadness, humor, deep friendship and the characters were great. Kept my interest till the end. Such a wonderful story. Thank You
