Goodreads Summary: I wish I could say our meeting was happenstance.
I wish I could say we took one look and we just knew.
I wish I could say falling for him was the best thing that ever happened to me.
But none of that would be true.
Rhett Carson was as cold as the ice on which he skated. He was as calloused as the hands that shot the goals that won world titles. He was also damaged. And broken. And he didn’t know it, but I knew all about him.
I knew why he was so bitter and angry.
I knew why he was so coldhearted.
But I didn’t know why I allowed myself fall in love with him, and I didn’t know why I couldn’t stop… even when he told me to.
And that’s when everything changed.
My Rating: 5 Hockey Pucks
My Thoughts: I read this one back on February 5th and I rated this 5 stars.I have read a few other reads by this author that I rated 4 or 5 stars also so it wasn’t a shocker that this one would follow suit and be just as good.
This book had quite a bit of angst and heartbreak. Ayla has traveled to New York City to bury a brother she never even met. Bryce Renner was mad that his father had an affair and he seemed as though he didn’t want anything to do with her.
Following the funeral, Bryce’s teammates reached out to Ayla and offered to take her out for drinks. She agrees and learns the truth about Bryce’s death. The man who held stories and information about her brother, Rhett Carson, probably wasn’t going to speak to her because it seems that Bryce died with his fiancee.
The next day, she finds herself side by side with Mr. Rhett Carson after her college room stood her up. Soon they are making plans for no strings attached sex. Only Ayla knows that truth, that were strings attached before they even had their first kiss.
She hides the fact that Bryce is her brother because once they start their agreement, she feels she is into deep. When he finds out every thing goes to hell in a hand basket quick.
This book goes through all of the emotions. You get hooked easily in the beginning because you want to know more and more. Then you fall in love right along with Rhett and Ayla.
