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.

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.
Loved it so much
Terribly written & no romance
I LOVE chick lit, but this is a truly awful book. Very poorly written and contains little romance. It’s basically a porno, and feels like it’s written by a man, for guys to read. Boring and painful to get through. I finally gave up with 30 pages to go.
