The ice is a cold mistress. As the league’s most eligible goalie, Max Fournier has access to his fair share of willing puck bunnies, but right now he’s more interested in bringing home another championship than a one-night stand. A romantic at heart, Max believes in love; he’s just not great at relationships. So when he finally meets a nice girl who’s not blinded by his celebrity, he’s feeling the heat—and the pressure to save her from herself.
Between working two jobs and raising her sister’s kids, Julianne Bradley doesn’t have time for sports—or men. All she knows about Max is that he’s the sexiest customer to ever grace her gas-station counter. And he sees past her tired eyes and makes Jules yearn for things she can’t have: a glamorous fling, a passionate lover, and the time to enjoy both. Max makes her feel like Cinderella, even though Jules has enough baggage to crush a glass slipper. Luckily, he’s no prince—only a fierce competitor determined to win her heart.
What a great love story here! Max is sweet, sexy, gentle and had my heart melting. Julianne is a beautiful, tired, wonderful woman that definitely needed a man like Max. I loved how Max came back again and again to see Julianne and their story just melted me and had me sighing all the time.
I am fixated on a romance like this! It captures your attention from the start and just doesn't let go even after you finish. The story had heart and passion and was SO well written. I enjoy books by Sawyer Bennett and have yet to be disappointed. Max may well be favorite though.
Max definitely gets a SOULFULLY SWEET FIVE SHOOTING STARS! Its breathtakingly sweet and so beautiful.
