With a famous NHL player for a stepbrother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation of many a hockey star. She isn’t interested in legendary team captain Alex Waters or his pretty, beat-up face and rock-hard six-pack abs. When Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes much more than just a hot body with the face to match.
Suffering from a complete lapse in judgment, Violet discovers just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. Violet believes her night of orgasmic magic with Alex is just that: one night. But Alex starts to call. And text. And email and send extravagant―and quirky―gifts. Suddenly, he's too difficult to ignore, and nearly impossible not to like.
The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.

Loved it so much
Really slow start
I must confess, I have started this book many times before but it never had engaged me enough to want to continue it. The beginning of the story is extremely slow. One day, while I was at the gym and wanted something to read on the treadmill I decided to restart this book again and after the 7th chapter, I was finally hooked. So, it took many pages, but in the end I really liked the story. I just can't give it more than 3.5 stars because of the first chapters where nothing happens! Seriously, nothing! Wasted pages for a nice story.
Raunchy, irreverent and great fun
Since I love hockey, as a player and an of the Bruins growing up and the Red Wings through their recent glory years, I thought what the heck, I’ll see what this is like. Not disappointed at all.
The language is not for the prudish or squeamish. But the dialogs...they’re most entertaining. I found myself chuckling out loud on numerous occasions. The hockey situations are relatable, the sex descriptions are easy to make one jealous and the read is fast paced. All in all, expect to move on to more HH.
