Player. That's me. Until I caught sight of Anya Pavlova. Petite, with mouth-watering curves. Blonde hair to her bottom, filthy things filling my head. She's young, sweet, and innocent. Too innocent to spend time with someone like me. It makes me regret not listening to Noah when he warned me about the reputation I was gaining by fucking around.
Ivan wanted to kill me for even looking his sister's way. He isn't here though, is he? He won't know if I sneak kisses with the innocent Russian Princess.
I'm lonely in Boston, even though I shouldn't be. I've made new friends, but I still feel like the odd one out. Because of the attention I receive from some of the hockey players, Mama keeps a close eye on me. Not only do they make me blush, but it's comforting to know that I'm not lost amongst the crowds in this city.
Theo Ward, the Boston Bay Vikings' goalie, has gone out of his way to spend time with me. When he's close, he causes more than my cheeks to flush. His smile makes my heart melt. I desperately want to throw myself at him, but I'm aware of his reputation as a jerk. Ivan made certain of this before he left.
With danger lurking around every corner and Ivan in Russia, there is only one man I can rely on to keep me safe, and he has vowed to do so.
Meet Theo Ward and Anya Pavlova in the eighth book of the Boston Bay Vikings series by NYT and USA Today bestselling author, Lexi Buchanan.
