A Seattle Sockeyes Novel
I'm the guy the entire team loves to hate. Not only am I one of the Sockeyes' best players, but I make sure everyone knows it. No woman has ever held my heart until I meet Tia. She's everything I am, gorgeous, rude, arrogant with a capital 'TUDE, and we're both concealing soul-shattering pain. Together we're fire and ice, a combo I can't resist and one that has me worried I've finally succumbed to the worst four-letter word in the English language--LOVE.
After my mother's tragic death, I've lashed out and driven away everyone who ever cared about me. The pain is so great, I feel I don’t deserve friendship or love. Along comes Bryce. We're kindred spirits. He's as damaged as I am. Out of our grief, something special begins to sprout, but our tendency to destroy anything good in our lives threatens the best thing that's ever happened to us. Only Bryce refuses to give up while I'm finding old habits die hard. Barricading my heart is easier than taking the risk of being hurt again.
I have enjoyed the whole series, this one learning the background and seeing who they can come when they find support in each other that is only found when you let yourself and find the soul you connect with.
Tia and Bryce
I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This was kind of a sad story with some great suspense and a bit of a Cinderella story starring hockey player Bryce and spoiled rich girl and horse woman, Tia who we have met in previous books. In this story we get her whole reason for why she acts so badly.
In this story Tia is our Cinderella and her father's mistress and now fiancée is the evil stepmother to be with her evil son and they are after Tia's fathers' wealth, and they want to destroy Tia.
Bryce plays Prince Charming in this story and from his first scene with Tia you can feel the magic between these two. What starts up as a hook up ends up meaning a lot more to two very broken people who end up really needing each other.
This is not a light read but it is full of hot scenes, lots of drama, suspense and a horrible villain and a chance for Bryce to save the day. It was a really different story in this series, but it was intense and highly entertaining.
