Overview

His game... Her rules.

Promise Harbor Wedding, Book 3

Hockey star Jackson Knight has a hundred reasons not to return to Promise Harbor, but none of them are good enough to get him out of attending his best friend's wedding. Even with a career-ending knee injury, every puck-bunny in town will be gunning for him.

Worse, getting a pair of cuffs slapped on him at the bachelor party could ruin any chance of getting back in the game, even as a coach. Unless he can convince the arresting officer to smooth things over-by going to the wedding as his date.

Hayley Stone figures posing as Jackson's girlfriend is the least she can do to salvage his reputation. Plus, having a man with a toe-curling smile on her arm will keep her ex off her back.

What starts as a simple plan to deflect small-town pot-shots unexpectedly becomes a sizzling night that hits Jackson like a full-body-check to the heart. Now he's determined to prove that she's the best reason of all to come home-for good.

Warning: Contains a fiery powerplay both on and off the ice, skin-tingling forced intimacy, interfering grandparents, bear costume hijinks, a haunted house and the kind of game-changing chemistry worth fighting for.

Busted is the third story in the Promise Harbor Wedding series that starts the relationship between Hayley and Jackson and is my favorite story in this series so far. I enjoyed the way the characters interacted with each other so well that I was able to picture the scenes so easily that I did not want to stop reading. There are a lot of emotions with the characters in this story that I found myself laughing, and at other times I could not help but feel their sadness.  Jackson Knight has been away from the home of his youth for many years while playing professional hockey. He's heading back to his hometown to participate in the wedding of his best friend, but since his injury he has no desire to return home knowing he will have to deal with being chased by women who want him because of his fame, and he definitely doesn’t want any pity from the town’s residents because his career is over. But as much as he doesn’t want to be there he cannot miss Josh’s big day. On the night before the wedding, after the bachelor party he’s sitting in a bar relaxing and before he knows it handcuffs are getting slapped on him and he’s being taken off to jail, which can very easily ruin all his chances of any job opportunities that can keep him in the sport of hockey.  Hayley Stone was the town troublemaker growing up, and now she’s a detective with the local police department. She had a huge crush on Jackson for many years that no one knew about, so being close to him after all these years is still affecting her. She’s turned her life around and is very dedicated as a police detective, and she’s the person who slapped the cuffs on Jackson. Knowing the town is going to hate her for arresting their local hockey star she has to find a way to make things right or she’ll never hear the end of it.  Jackson has an interview lined up to coach even though he’s not sure if that’s what he really wants to do with his life, but if news gets out about his arrest it may not matter. He comes up with a plan to coax Hayley into pretending to be his girlfriend while he’s in town in hopes of keeping women away from him and making his arrest look like it was all a joke pulled off by his girlfriend. Hayley agrees, especially after her ex shows up in town wanting to see her. She figures that the best way to avoid her ex is for him to see her with Jackson. Hayley has enough problems to deal with without Jackson finding every way that he can to spend time with her, but she can’t find a way to get away from him.  As Jackson’s visit to the harbor continues they never expected that the plan to pretend would cause their time together to become a reality that neither is prepared for. Will Hayley finally reveal her feelings for Jackson? Are the feelings they share enough to keep Jackson in Promise Harbor for good?
