Karen LaGrange, little sister of the former enforcer for the Scorpions, lives in Canada, where she works with special needs children. After losing her job to downsizing, she makes an extended visit to San Diego, forming a friendship with the errant goalie.Through frequent reminders that they are friends without benefits, Karen struggles to keep their relationship platonic, but the more she shuts him down, the more he wants her.
Can Cage convince Karen to slip under the sheets with him, or is he destined to be firmly entrapped in the friend zone?
So I once again jumped into a series out of order and you bet your sweet ass I’m going back to the beginning ASAP!
There are a lot of things to love about this book … but not everything. For me, I prefer the sexual push-pull tension to be relieved a lot earlier than it was, but on the flip side, it was that very tension that drew me into reading this book so quickly. So the verdict is good and bad on this one LOL
I absolutely loved Cage as a person. His characterization was spot on throughout the entire story and it never wavered. He was a player (no pun intended) with a heart of a teddy bear! **swoon** And Karen was just the loveliest creature as well. They made a good team! Their relationship as friends was heart-warming and when it morphed into the romantic pool it was just perfection. The best world a couple could ask for.
I’m really REALLY happy I jumped on this blog tour and was introduced to not only Nikki Worrell but The NHL Scorpions! I’ll be getting better acquainted with the rest of the team real soon!
