Jett Olsson isn’t looking for anything serious and she’s not looking for anything at all, so why does it seem so hard to keep it professional?
I love my life—the thrill of being on the ice as part of the Arizona Vengeance, the rush of winning, the adoration of the fans. And if that adoration means I don’t have to spend the night alone, well even better. I’m content being single and always ready to mingle.
But the day Emory Holland walks into a Vengeance team meeting my attention is caught like never before. I can tell right away she’s full of smarts and sass, and the fact that she’s hot as hell sure doesn’t hurt either. She immediately shuts down my advances, so I opt for the road less traveled—straight to the friend zone.
My approach works like a charm, and when she invites me into her bed for a no-strings, friends-with-benefits arrangement, I vow to give her everything I have. She’s been hurt before, and if I’m able to help her heal while giving her a spectacularly satisfying time *pats self on back*, then I’ll be happy.
Or at least that’s the lie I keep telling myself as the time ticks down on the final buzzer of our “relationship”. Now the real question is, can I score the winning goal in a game neither of us realized we were playing?
What a twist!
What a twist! Jett has always been a player and he definitely takes it as a challenge when Emory doesn’t fall for his usual ways, part of the organization or not. Emory has relocated to town for this job, but it works out great between her past and her sister’s accident and gives them both the fresh start they need. While she finds Jett attractive, she knows that nothing can risk her job security for her daughter, but when he finally breaks her down, he is in for the surprise of his life when he finds out that she has a child. Initially deciding things wouldn’t go anywhere due to said child, Jett finds that he has a good time with Emory as just friends, and that’s exactly what Emory needs to decide to let loose a little after everything in her life and have a friendship with benefits with Jett. Per usual though, things get messy, and feelings get involved, and that combined with Emory’s ex-husband coming back into the picture really threatens this couple’s HEA. Thankfully, everyone comes to their senses and things work out for this couple, and the ending is a little flat for me in that it was anti-climactic than her usual book endings, but I’m excited for the next installment since I can’t get enough of this team!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

A great addition to this series! I really enjoyed this friends to lovers storyline. Jett and Emory have great chemistry. Add in a dash of angst and you’ll be hooked until the end. Narration was fantastic!
