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?
If you like a good opposite attract story you will love this next installment in the Seattle Sockeyes series. Vi and Matt were fun to see together. I liked the story and the chemistry of these two. Neither thinking they want a future with the other, but finding out that what they both need is each other. Matt thinks he needs to live the straight and narrow, with no fun or adventure. Vi lives each day as they come and has some secrets that could mean trouble for Matt if they are ever revealed. I enjoyed Matt’s family, especially his Mom, she has a wild streak that she has been hiding from her son. Matt’s boys were adorable and I loved how they loved and accepted Vi, just the way she is. It was fun to get a visit from some of the other characters in the Seattle Series. I would recommend this book.
This story out of the series was the best! All are good but the sad and sweet tale of Matt and Vi’s love story is a real heart twister.
