Miranda: Even though I’m broke, putting myself through college, and working two jobs, I’m trying to make the best of it. Meanwhile, Jake Birch, hockey’s hottest bad boy, lives in a luxury hotel in downtown Chicago—and still complains about every little thing in his penthouse. But after I tell him off, instead of getting me fired, Jake requests me as his personal housekeeper. Then he starts flirting with me. Only I’m not flirting back . . . at least, I’m trying not to. Did I mention that he’s hockey’s hottest bad boy?

Jake: I’ve met the best woman at the worst possible time. Miranda is the fire to my ice—a sexy, charmingly candid spark who breaks down my walls and reminds me what it’s like to feel again. But I’m being forced to date my team owner’s daughter to keep my job, so I can’t be caught with Miranda. Still, we’re getting closer—until Miranda finds out about my “girlfriend.” And that’s not the only secret I’ve been keeping. But Miranda’s the one I want . . . even if she doesn’t believe me.

MY REVIEW

Get this book!! It's sweet and a little bit dirty. It's got banter, drama, emotions, and a brooding and moody hero to boot.

This story is about Jake. He's a successful hockey player. He's the Captain of his team and he's dealing with some emotional demons that usually have him acting as more of an A-hole than a gentleman. The heroine is Miranda, a young woman who's working two jobs to make ends meet while putting herself through business school. She's been burned one too many times and has all but lost faith in mankind.

These characters became friends before becoming lovers. They instinctually knew that this time was different. That their time together was special. And I found the evolution of their relationship beautiful. The author did a great job of throwing in a real wacko to stir the pot, but overall, this story was low on angst and the emphasis was placed on the connection between the characters.

I recommend this story to anyone looking for a sweet and sexy sports romance!
