Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He’s had one failed marriage and doesn’t have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can’t comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn’t listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi’s house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt’s forgiveness?

My Review

4 Stars!

Another sexy Sockeye falls in love!

Matt is straight-laced, a bit uptight and loves his boys and hockey in that order. He also has an undeniable attraction to the wild, sexy Vi. Vi is a free-spirit who makes no apologies for her deep attraction to the sexy hockey player, even if they hate each other. When they finally give in to their attraction and agree to a no-strings arrangement, they suddenly see more in each other.

I really enjoyed this book! I am a huge fan of this series in general, but Matt kind of stuck with me. He’s not a player like most of his teammates. He’s a father and his focus is on hockey and his boys. He had his heart broken by his ex-wife leaving him pretty closed off. Vi brought out the best in him. He loosened up and let go and he was sexy as all get out. I loved Vi. She was unabashed, unashamed and she did what she had to to survive in life. At first, she was afraid of those boys and they were a cute little handful, but it was sweet when they grew closer.

A great story line with a bit of mystery involved. Steamy sexy times. A hero you can’t help but love and a heroine who is perfectly flawed! A great read!!!
