I never thought I’d see her again.
We shared one hot night together back in college before our paths took us in different directions.
But now, the most brilliant and beautiful woman I’ve ever met is back in my life. And the chemistry I remember? It’s more combustible than ever.
Except… our fling is forbidden and must exist only in secret. Her rules, not mine.
I can’t be her forever. I’m not that guy, and even she knows it.
But I can’t stay away from her either. I’m determined to claim not just her body but her heart, even if that’s the one thing she’s vowed not to give me.

Ryan (Playing for Keeps) launches her Looking to Score series with a steamy story full of delicious detail that's light on angst. Eden Wynn is a wealthy girl from the right side of town, and though Holt Rossi has harbored a crush on her for years, he's never felt worthy of her. When their one college hookup ends with Eden leaving him a note that reads, "This was a mistake," Holt's worst fears are confirmed. Years later, Eden inherits her grandfather's hockey team and must publicly cope with the fact that her ex, Alex Braun, is one of her players. Just when things couldn't get more stressful, her team hires Holt as her new security detail. The last thing Eden needs is a relationship tied to her work, but Holt still has feelings for the girl that got away, and soon enough Eden realizes that she made a mistake all those years ago. Ryan keeps the focus on the feelings rather than action, and the result is a soothing escape that more than makes up for its lack of twists and turns with endearing characters, sizzling sex scenes, and an emotion-driven plot. This is the literary equivalent of comfort food. (Self-published)
Sparks are still flying!
This is book one in the Looking to Score series and it features Eden and Holt. They shared one sinfully sexy night in college. Six years later and they haven’t seen each other since that night, he’s been hired as her bodyguard. The sparks are definitely still flying between them. Holt appears to be a super alpha man but when it comes to Eden, it’s almost as if he’s lost his man card. He’s like a sappy, lovesick teenager. She acts more mature about her feelings for him.
The story line was great. Most of the characters were fantastic. I wish Holt was more manly when it came to any kind of interaction with Eden. There was a lot of information lacking in Alex’s story. I can’t wait to fill in the blanks in book two.
Steamy hockey romance! LOVED Holt and Eden!
What a start to this series from Kendall Ryan. This book introduces us to the hockey team Boston Titans and their new owner Eden. After her grandfather passed away, she inherits the hockey team and the drama that comes with it. Some people feel a woman shouldn’t head the team. Another issue is that her ex boyfriend is a new player on the team. The up side to the drama is that it brings Holt into her life as her new head of security. Holt and Eden actually knew each other in college and had one steamy hook up. Holt always liked Eden but as a loner enrolled on scholarship he felt she was too out of his league and never pursued anything beyond that one night. Now six years later they have been reunited and all the feelings come rushing back. I was upset with Eden at the beginning of the book because Holt was obviously a better choice than Alex. However she was young and insecure and made the wrong choice. I loved their reconnection. I also adored Holt!! He was everything she needed and more!! I loved their story so much!! I can’t wait to see what comes for them as the series goes on and focuses on other characters. I received a copy of this book via Booksprout and I am voluntarily leaving a review.
I liked the book overall. Yet, There were moments where I felt it dragged on a bit. The climax was a bit underwhelming and I felt like the characters were a bit boring.
