Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He’s had one failed marriage and doesn’t have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can’t comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn’t listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi’s house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt’s forgiveness?


I do enjoy one of Jami Davenport’s Seattle Sports Romances, but I have to say this one was one of my favourites. Matt, Vi, and the boys was such a lovely treat.
At the beginning it was a meeting of the Odd Couple Vi the tattooed stripper, and Matt the straitlaced man who likes his life ordered and sane. The chemistry between them was unwelcome at first, but neither can resist other.
I loved Vi with the boys, and the healthy food she tries to feed them made me laugh.
This was a sweet sexy love story about two lost people who found each other and made their lives complete. I especially like imagining a lot sweaty sexy hunks playing Hockey. Matt was a great surprise to me, he always seemed boring on the surface, but he was a real surprise. If you enjoy a good sports romance then this the one for you.
I received an ARC of this book in exchange for an Honest review.
