Crisis-counselor-turned-cocktail-waitress Valerie Chase knows the score—Men are a distraction and not in her game plan. But when a certain hockey player tempts her wild side, part of her wants to indulge in a little harmless fun.

As the star center for the Texas Highlanders, Darren Moran’s good looks and deadly determination make him a fan favorite. But after the previous season’s disaster, the last thing he needs is to let some woman crawl under his skin. But… Val’s different. She brings out the best in him—both on and off the ice—and he’s not about to lose her. .

When the game moves to the next level, Darren and Val have got to call timeout. An unplanned romance is a game-thrower, a sinful temptation that neither of them can afford. After all, there’s no way to have order in matters of the heart when the penalties tally up to an ejection from the game. .

Reviewed by: Marissa Book provided by: book provided by the author for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book I love a good romance involving a big, bad hockey player. Add to that a sassy bar waitress and what’s not to love? Okay, it’s kind of weird to put an ice hockey team in Texas. Texas is land of football, baseball, and barbecue beef. Yes, I know there are hockey teams in Texas. Somewhere. But it’s just so hard to wrap my mind around a hockey player in a land of cowboys. Luckily for me there’s not a lot of “Texas” in the story – just a lot of Darren, Val, and, of course, falling in love. Darren, the hotshot hockey player, is he-man macho, ready to protect his woman (even before she’s his) at all costs. What don’t I like about him? He’s a hockey player with all his natural teeth and no scars. At least, none that anyone mentions in the story. Anyone who reads my reviews knows I like my men with flaws and Darren just doesn’t have any. Despite a failed marriage, he’s not really a commitment-phobe. There’s a little fear about his performance on the ice, but it’s such a minor part of the story it almost wasn’t there. He has no physical scars. No internal scars. Which just makes him too perfect. Val, at least, has issues. She’s lost her job (a job she truly loves) and is living from paycheck to paycheck (something I can totally relate to). She doesn’t have room in her life for a man – and she fights her attraction to Darren even while watching his games on the bar TV. Her heart wants a man but her brain keeps getting in the way, telling her she needs to get her job and finances in order first. Now this is a woman I can understand. And now for my nod to realism. In one bar scene, Darren is disappointed to find fellow bar patrons soaking up the baseball playoffs. The television could have been showing hockey’s greatest moments, but the author kept it real. Baseball in Texas and men with beer guts cheering. Overall, a pleasant and enjoyable book.
