Hockey star Alexander Crossman has a reputation as a cold-hearted player on and off the rink. Pushed into the sport by an alcoholic father, Alex isn’t afraid to give fans the proverbial middle finger, relishing his role as the MVP they love to hate. Management, however, isn’t so amused. Now Alex has a choice: fix his public image through community service or ride the bench. But Alex refuses to be molded into the Carolina Cold Fury poster boy . . . not even by a tempting redhead with killer curves.
As a social worker, Sutton Price is accustomed to difficult people–like Alex, who’s been assigned to help her create a drug-abuse awareness program for at-risk youth as part of the team’s effort to clean up his image. What she doesn’t expect is the arrogant smirk from his perfect lips to stir her most heated fantasies. But Sutton isn’t one to cross professional boundaries–and besides, Alex doesn’t do relationships . . . or does he? The more she sees behind Alex’s bad-boy facade, the more Sutton craves the man she uncovers.”

I absolutely loved this book! The storyline, characters and Ms. Bennett’s writing made it so “real”. It felt like I was reading about someones life rather than a fiction novel as the characters were so life-like and had real issues that they worked through to be together.
I loved the end – Alex is so swoony and adorable. I think he’s so amazing. And Sutton was a strong heroine, perfect for Alex!
I also loved Suttons family, especially her brother Glenn – he was such an inspiring child. Truly.
This book was five stars, without a doubt! I highly recommend it to all!
I can’t wait to read the next book!
