With a famous NHL player for a step-brother, Violet Hall is well acquainted with the playboy reputation many hockey stars come with. She’s smart enough to steer clear of those hot, well-built boys with unparalleled stamina. That is until she meets the legendary team captain — Alex Waters.
Violet isn’t interested in his pretty, beat-up face, or his rock-hard six-pack abs. But when Alex inadvertently obliterates Violet’s previous misapprehension regarding the inferior intellect of hockey players, he becomes more than just a hot body with a face to match.
In what can only be considered a complete lapse in judgment, Violet finds out just how good Alex is with the hockey stick in his pants. But what starts out as a one-night stand, quickly turns into something more. Post-night of orgasmic magic, Alex starts to call, and text, and e-mail and send extravagant — and quirky — gifts, making him difficult to ignore, and even more difficult not to like.
The problem is, the media portrays Alex as a total player, and Violet doesn’t want to be part of the game.
I have mentioned a few times already how much I love Hockey books, right? So, after seeing a good review of this book on another blog, I decided to give this one a chance. This book was definitly different from the other Hockey books I’ve read though, but I did enjoy it a lot. This was definitly a very fun read! 😀
The writing was beyond funny. I read this book and I heard a few chapters in audio, and I was laughing like crazy in the middle of the street.
I do think the characters were fun, but I felt they were a bit two dimensional. The story itself it’s not big or deep, and so the characters serve the story well. Violet was fun and outspoken and I loved her little outbursts. Alex I kind of liked, but I wasn’t sold on him being the captain of the Hockey team, because that dude had a very short fuse, lol. I really liked Violet’s relationship with Buck, but her description of her step-brother isn’t making me want to read book 2 =/.
As I said, even though it wasn’t the best book in terms of plot and characters, it was hilarious and entertaining, and super super hot. I had a blast!
