Her hunky, tattooed star forward was supposed to admit defeat this time.
He was supposed to follow her rules.
Not charm his way onto the cover of her upcoming cookbook.
Athena Gavras has a bone to pick with hottie hockey player Chadwick Raul Mullens. He shrugs off her prescribed dietary plans with that stupid, sexy smile that makes her knees shaky, has marched his way into two of her cooking projects and refuses to call her by her real name.
Seriously. Has the man taken too many pucks to the head?
He doesn’t even know the difference between kale and iceberg lettuce. Someone please tell her karma is real and on its way to make amends, because otherwise she’s not sure how much longer she’s going to last…
Chad Mullens has a few secrets. And a crush.
And, this Christmas, she’s just declared war. She’s removed him from her client list which means he’ll be benched until one of them calls a truce.
But two can play her game: he just convinced her publisher that he should be on the cover of her upcoming cookbook as well as join her online cooking show. Merry Christmas, *Tina*.
Of course, he could end their battle. He could suck it up, find the words to apologize, and woo the bookish, culinary Athena into forgiveness via his home library and secret rooftop garden.
Or he could kiss her in the corporate office’s elevator and see what happens. Because there’s no way he’s going to show her how real he is under his bad-boy public persona. He’d rather be traded.
Enjoy this enemies to lovers romance as part of the Hockey Sweethearts series or binge read it on its own. A swoonalicious read!
The Huckleberry Book Shop ( Hockey Sweethearts ) by Jean Oram
This was another great story by Jean , this book had heartwarming and heartbreaking moments. What it took to bring these two Athena and Chad together was a lot of effort on Chad’s part . I loved this book .
The Huckleberry Bookshop: An Enemies to Lovers Sweet Romance by Jean Oram is an excellent book. I could not put it down, her characters Athena and Chad both funny and intensely attractive to each other yet Athena doesn’t want to have Chad around. I love Chad and how determined he is about Athena and what she wants and needs. This is absolutely an amazing story and a wonderful addition to the Hockey Sweethearts series.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
The dietitian and the hockey player
This book made me laugh many times. It amazes me how two people can be attracted to each other but get so irritated with them too. Athena and Chad have past hurts and each deal with them very differently. Filming them cooking together was very comical yet serious. Enjoyed seeing them move from getting under each other's skin to friendship and love. Loved seeing characters from previous books in this series. Falling in love is not always a smooth ride.
