Winning has always come naturally for stud ice hockey defenseman Gus “the Bus” Persson. On the ice or off, he’s never had any trouble scoring, racking up goals—and girls. As the best player in his rookie class and the number-one draft pick of the Malibu Suns, he’s taking his game to the next level and is justifiably full of swagger.

So why does one of the Suns’ ice girls treat him like he’s invisible?

Bo St. James doesn’t have time for rookie hotshots who think their gloves don’t stink. She knows them, she works with them, she trains them. It doesn’t matter that Gus Persson is the hottest newbie she’s ever seen. She knows his type. She’s got big plans of her own, and she’s not going to let some cocky rich kid athlete keep her from her goals.

But there’s a chemistry between them they cannot deny. A lust that burns so hot, it threatens to melt the very ice on which they make their livings. The game has changed for both of them. Together, can these two play to win?


Review by Paula:

I love this author so I jumped at the chance to get my hands on this, it doesn’t disappoint. The story follows Gus and Bo, she’s an ice girl and he’s a hockey player, Bo hates Gus but that makes him want her even more. Gus manages to get her to agree to a date, will he be able to break down her walls? Will she be able to see beneath his cocky exterior? You will have to read to find out!

This was a quick read for me, I read it in one sitting but I did struggle a bit at the beginning. The reason was Gus, there were times I loved him, yes he was a man whore, a one and done kinda guy, but he was loveable, but sometimes what came out of his mouth made me cringe. As the book goes on he gets better, a little bit swoon worthy and I was totally rooting for Bo to give him a chance by the end of the book. I totally got why Bo hated him, especially with her past, but I did think she was a bit hard on him at times, comparing him to her ex. I loved his parents, especially his mam she was really funny. This is another great read from this author.  4 Stars


About the Author:

My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
