It was supposed to be one fake date…
When sexy-as-sin Harper Henderson launches profanities into the night sky from the balcony below mine, I’m forced to intervene. I may be a professional hockey player with a playboy reputation, but I’m also a good guy. Charming and affable with unrivaled cheekbones and a lack of serious commitments (save for hockey), I make an impressive plus-one.
Volunteering to be Harper’s date to her dreaded ten-year high school reunion is easy. Pretending not to fall for her when our innocent kisses turn passionate is a little more challenging.
But when Harper returns the fake date favor and accompanies me to my parents’ anniversary party, everything changes. She garners my dad’s respect and effortlessly mingles with my childhood friends. She eases the familial pressure I drown under and makes me crave things I used to laugh off.
Tangling up with Harper was supposed to be a fun way to pass the summer. So, why does it feel like she’s the real prize? The elusive, fleeting kind of real I’ve avoided for years?
And how can I prove that this playboy wants a different kind of reward? One that sounds a lot like commitment…
Hockey player we all need
Playboy Damien is every girls dream. Hot hockey player on and off the ice. Harper, his neighbor who he’s had a crush on has a HS reunion she is going to. While she’s trying to figure out how not to go to this reunion because of last issues, Damien sees an opportunity. I loved these 2 characters together. They had good chemistry. There were some issues along the way, but what relationship doesn’t right? I haven’t fully read the series, but after reading this one I think I will have to.
I received this ARC through the publisher and I am voluntarily reviewing this book, opinions are my own.
