“…extremely cute and sexy!” ~Under the Covers
Jordan Ryan was the star goalie of the Assassins until an injury put him out of commission. After his recovery, he’s come back to the team only to be on the bench at every game. He feel he still has many good years of play in him but with the new star goalie working out so well for the Assassins, he sees he will never get any ice time if he stays with the team.
While looking for another team to trade to, he meets Aynslee. They hit it off from the start, flirting, talking and the chemistry is off the charts. But he knows he’s going away and doesn’t want to start anything. That doesn’t stop them from giving a relationship a try.
I have to say these two were extremely cute and sexy! It was so enjoyable to read and I didn’t even mind that it was short. The author did an amazing job at giving us a great and complete story in such a short amount of pages. Even though I really didn’t remember meeting Jordan previously in the series (granted I haven’t read all the books) I fell immediately for him. He’s the good guy any girl wants to bring home to meet the parents. And Aynslee is adorable as well. I liked her from the very beginning.
It makes me all the more excited to continue reading this series.
