If you want to score, you have to get in the game...
The last thing Jenna Riley needs is more sports in her life. While her brothers are off being athletic superstars, she's stuck running the family's sports bar, whether she likes it or not. Then in walks pro hockey stud Tyler Anderson. As much as Jenna would like to go to the boards with him, she's vowed to never fall for a jock—even one as hot as Ty.
Ty, intrigued by the beautiful bar owner, becomes a regular. He senses that Jenna wants to do something more with her life. And as he gains her trust, the passion between them grows, as does Ty's insistence that Jenna should start living for herself. With his encouragement, Jenna starts to believe it, too...
But first, Jenna has to figure out what she wants, what she needs, who she loves, and if she has the passion and pride to take a shot at having it all—including Ty
My Rating: 5 Steams
Can we just start off by saying DAYYYUMMMM! That is what every cover should be. ; )
I loved book 1 and I was definitely not so patiently waiting for this one to come out, especially after the tease we got in the first one of what the chemistry would be like for Ty and Jenna.
Jenna is determined to NOT be with a "Sports Player". She is surrounded by sports and has been all of her life. She has even lost out on dreams of her own because of the sports fever that consumed her family. She may run a sports bar and watch sports everyday, but this is one thing in her life she is determined to not be sucked into more than she already was.
I loved Ty. He was so forward yet so laid back and patient at the same time. This is because he would push when he thought it would be right, but he would back off and give Jenna time occasionally to. I really think that worked to his advantage. Jenna is one stubborn girl!
The chemistry in this book is scorching. Ty and Jenna heated up a room just by being in it together. The sex, oh WOW, it was definitely not a let down.
This is definitely being added to my Favorites shelf. I tough hockey player plus lots of HOT Steamy sex, where could you go wrong?
