Harper Chase has just become the most powerful woman in the NHL after the death of her father Clifford Chase, maverick owner of the Chicago Rebels. But the team is a hot mess—underfunded, overweight, and close to tapping out of the league. Hell-bent on turning the luckless franchise around, Harper won’t let anything stand in her way. Not her gender, not her sisters, and especially not a veteran player with an attitude problem, a chip on his shoulder, and a smoldering gaze designed to melt her ice-compacted defenses.Veteran center Remy “Jinx” DuPre is on the downside of a career that’s seen him win big sponsorships, fans’ hearts, and more than a few notches on his stick. Only one goal has eluded him: the Stanley Cup. Sure, he’s been labeled as the unluckiest guy in the league, but with his recent streak of good play, he knows this is his year. So why the hell is he being shunted off to a failing hockey franchise run by a ball-buster in heels? And is she seriously expecting him to lead her band of misfit losers to a coveted spot in the playoffs? He’d have a better chance of leading Harper on a merry skate to his bed…
Oh boy...I have to make a confession. I am a hardcore judger of book covers and after seeing this cover, I couldn't wait another second before jumping in. However, I was thinking could the story top the cover and why yes, yes it did!
I have not read anything like this for a while. I tend to stick to my comfort level but given the opportunity, I couldn't help but give it a chance. Falling into the story of Harper Chase and Remy DuPre, it didn't take long for things to get HOT!!!!!
Harper has a lot going on with running a team her belated father left behind and the only hope she has of restoring the team's glory and winning the cup lies in the hand of a guy she can't stand to not feel aroused around. Throughout this story we see Harper struggle but we also she her strive. Remy, on the other hand, is this stuck up but so irresistible man that you can't help but drool when he is in the room. Their relationship is all over the place but by the end you are swooning and wondering where your DuPre is.
I am excited to continue this series and follow the next sister and see who she finds on the ice. If you are looking for a book that makes the room go up in temperature this is the book for you. Meader is the author to check out.
I give this book 4 souls!
