Single dad and veteran defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He's had one failed marriage and doesn't have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can't comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses not to do their homework.
Violet Strider is fleeing her haunted past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn't listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return.
As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart and cause irreparable damage. Relationships are built on trust, and Vi's house of cards is about to take a tumble and destroy their fragile bond.
Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt's forgiveness?

Loved this story about a good woman with a checkered past getting her life turned around!! As a hockey fan I really enjoyed the setting being within a hockey “family “
Enough steamy sex to make it interesting. I am excited to see there are more hockey stories from Jami Davenport.
The ending was abrupt and didn’t answer any of my questions. The book was sweet but the ending sucked. Matt was fighting for custody but the ending didn’t conclude if he won or what happened in court. Violet was going to start a dance studio and there was no elaboration or conclusion if she failed or succeeded.
What a great addition to the series! At first glance Vi and Matt seem like complete opposites ho hate each other and can’t deny their chemistry. As they spend more time together the tables turn on them and they discover not all things are as they seem. I loved the way the group of characters came together to support each other. This story was filled with painful pasts, hopeful futures, exciting presents, passion, love, and family! Can’t wait for more from the series!
