Ever Montgomery suffered the ultimate betrayal by the one man who she should have been able to count on for anything. It has left her hurt, jaded and incapable of forming relationships, but it also means that she can spot a liar a mile away. These traits are earning her a reputation as a reporter with a keen nose for a good story and a complete understanding of the extreme power of the written word.
Lincoln Caldwell, is the hot goalie for the New York Rangers. At twenty-four and a rising star, he works hard and he plays even harder. He's gorgeous and carefree--the ultimate charmer. Ladies fall at his feet and the single life has never been lived the way Linc Caldwell does it.
When Ever publishes an article about Linc containing information that she received off the record, she finds herself on the receiving end of the athelete's fury. Rather than basking in the glory of exposing Linc as a shameless user of women, she finds herself at his mercy when he demands and receives retribution. Required by her editor to trail Linc for six weeks, Ever is forced to look at the real Linc Caldwell.
And she just might find that she has misjudged him.

Improbable premise but a good story nonetheless
I'll start by saying the precipitating event that gets the story started is ridiculous. A brand new hire at a major NYC newspaper writes a scathing idiotic opinion piece (and seriously, what 22 year old new grad gets to do that any way?!) that a) is based on unsubstantiated hearsay and b) intentionally misrepresents something and biggest of all c) disregards the confidentiality of an "off the record" agreement and d) rips apart a major NY professional athlete who comes to a meeting at the paper with a lawsuit in hand. There is no way, NO WAY that person doesn't get fired.
After scoffing at the premise and then engaging in the willing suspension of disbelief, I have to say, as is usually the case with Ms. Bennett's books, I fell into the story and again came to care about the characters. Not one of my favorites of hers but I still recommend it and am ready to start the 4th book in the series.
