Temptation could destroy everything he’d spent his career building…
Professional hockey player Jean-Michel Vander is living the dream…. And the Las Vegas strip is a long way from the small town in Quebec where he grew up. He works hard but he plays harder, especially in the off-season. The sexy redhead he spots doing a striptease in a Paris nightclub is all kinds of fun.
Until he finds out who her father is… and she becomes all kinds of trouble.
College graduate Daisy DeSantos is living her best life spending the summer traveling abroad with her friends in Europe. Before heading back home to Las Vegas to start her new life, she wants to live a little. When she dances with a handsome stranger in a nightclub, she gets more than she bargained for: a viral video and a fake boyfriend.
The pretend relationship might have started out as a cover story, but their feelings are anything but fake.
Daisy and Jean Michel
I received a complimentary early release e-book prior to release and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This story was a surprise to me. I knew the characters names but until I started reading this story, I did not realize who the female lead was, who Daisy was and her connection to the whole Sidewinder series was.
So here is the scoop, she is Renee's daughter and Jared's stepdaughter, and this story takes place three years after the events that happened in Jared's book. I read Jared's book when it came out and loved it but as I was reading this book, I did not remember all the details and so around 20% I went back and re-read Jared's book. I highly suggest you do because a lot of stuff happens with Daisy in that book and it's a great way to get to know her prior to reading this book.
In this story we catch up to her as she has graduated college in Switzerland and is now in Paris celebrating when she runs in Jean Michel "Vander" who is a player on her dads Sidewinder Las Vegas team but when they meet, they have no idea about their connections to the team.
But when they do, they realize they have to fake a relationship so Jared is not upset with Vander and that's where things a bit messy with Vander as he tells Daisy they can fake date for 3 months but no more because he doesn't do relationships. So, he and Daisy enter into a fake relationship while just being friends. But how long can that really last as both are crazy in lust with each other. And so, the fun begins...
This was a really fun story. I loved how these two meet and then when they discover their Vegas connection. I also adored Daisy in Jared's book and so it was awesome to catch up with her again and see how she had changed in the three years and also the changes in Jared and Renee's life as well.
