Hailed by Jami Davenport as her “go-to author for hockey romance,” the bestselling author of the Heller Brothers Hockey series sets the ice ablaze with another sexy novel featuring the gorgeous men of the Chicago Aces.
Duncan Armstrong may be an NHL star, but he’s a country boy at heart. His ultimate fantasy is going home with the Stanley Cup, not a gold-digging airhead who aspires to be a trophy wife and nothing more. Newly single and hoping to enjoy a night out with his teammates, he ends up hitting it off with a down-to-earth waitress who’s a complete breath of fresh air—until Duncan learns that she’s a part-time model. He tries to forget about her, but their sizzling chemistry has him coming back for more.
Amber is working hard to put herself through school, and has zero interest in dating a professional athlete. She’s seen firsthand how fame and fortune can mess with their heads—her father’s brilliant football career ended in a firestorm of addiction and infidelity. So Duncan’s attentions immediately have her on the defensive. Still, there’s something different about him. And once she stops trying to freeze him out, irresistible temptation turns into all-consuming passion.
USA Today bestselling author Kelly Jamieson is the author of more than thirty contemporary romance novels. She’s a married mother of two who lives a very ordinary life outside of her imagination. She likes coffee (black), wine (mostly white), and shoes (high!). She also loves watching hockey.
Amber Donaldson is determined to make it on her own. She doesn't need a guy to take care of her. She watched her Dad tear their family apart and vowed not to be like her mother: dependent on a man. When Amber meets Duncan Armstrong, the gorgeous professional hockey player, she is surprised how much she likes him. He is not arrogant like she thought he would be. He seems down to Earth and doesn't throw his money around. He is sexy as hell too. Despite her reservations, Amber decided to start hanging out with him. The more time they spend together, the quicker she is falling for him. Duncan Armstrong has no luck when it comes to women. All they seem to want him for is his money. When Duncam meets Amber, he is completely caught off guard. She is gorgeous, funny, and easy to get along with. She also doesn't want anything to do with his money. Their sex life is hot and steamy. Everything would be perfect if they could just get past their trust issues. Unwanted family issues and nosey press are going to put their faith in each other to the test. I absolutely loved this book. It was so well written; the chapters flowed smoothly. The dual POV was perfect. Duncan and Amber are definitely one of my favorite couples. They were perfect together. Duncan is such a sweet guy and absolutely hot in bed. Amber was strong, smart, and independent. I liked that she wasn't a pushover.
I absolutely recommend this book and can't wait to read the rest of the books in the Aces Hockey series!
