He knows every play in the book. But she’s calling the shots.

“An epic story of the one that got away—Maddox will totally surprise readers in a lovely, lovely way.”—Sawyer Bennett

I’m Maddox Ledger, all-star winger and the reason the Charlotte Strikers killed it in the playoffs. Yeah, the tabloids like to call me arrogant. A real hothead. All I see is a guy who plays to win. Wreaking havoc on the ice, breaking a few hearts—that’s all just part of the game. And I’m sure as hell not sitting on the bench.

When my teammate asks me to be in his wedding party, I can’t refuse. Lucky for me, the bridesmaid I’m paired with is the definition of eye candy, but she’s so much more than that. Lacey Easton is totally irresistible and she makes me want to be a better man. A glimpse of bare shoulder takes me back to a steamy, two-week Vegas tryst I can’t forget. One I’m eager to repeat.

Suddenly our one-night stand is turning into the sequel. Still, Lacey’s keeping secrets. She doesn’t trust me. And maybe I deserve it. But I know more than she thinks I do and there’s no chance I’m letting her get away—or letting another guy take what is mine. This time, I’m playing for keeps.

Thoughts 

Fans of hockey and its HOT players will enjoy this novel by L.P. Dover. While the get married in Vegas and run trope has been done before, this is slightly different spin on it. It’s an entertaining read with likable characters. Quick, steamy, read about a misunderstood hockey player who’s manwhore reputation has gotten him in trouble and scared off his new bride.  Two years later he is in for the fight of his life too win her back.  This is my first book by this author, but certainly won’t be my last.  *** Side note… I could stare at this gorgeous cover ALL DAY LONG!
