A Bad Boys of Sports Novel
by Nicole Edwards
Meet the most wanted players in sports . . . one ridiculously hot alpha male at a time.
Chase: With a nickname like “Sin,” it’s no wonder they call me the bad boy of hockey. Opponents curse me. Fans scream my name—in the arena and in other, much more private places. Penalties or not, I’m not afraid to dish out a little pain. But pleasure? That’s my weakness. And no one knows it better than my best friend, Cassie Desrosiers. I’d have to be blind not to notice her rocking body and teasing grin. So when she invites me along on a trip to Vegas, my curiosity isn’t the only thing that’s aroused.
Cassie: Chase Barrett is a world-class A-hole. As his best friend, I’m allowed to call him on his BS. Who else is going to do it? Certainly not the puck bunnies swooning at every flex of his biceps. Everyone knows that Chase is the love-’em-and-leave-’em type. There’s no such thing as commitment for the king of casual hookups. So why should I care? Maybe because all work and no play makes me a sexually frustrated girl. It’s time to put the hockey stud at my beck and call to good use . . . but after a week in Vegas with Chase, I might never want to go back to the real world.
Best friends turned lovers’ story. Both characters in denial about how they feel about each other, thinking the other couldn’t possibly be interested. One drunken night in Vegas could have long reaching consequences for them if only they could remember what happened! I enjoyed reading this story but found it a little predictable as far as the occurrences in Vegas and the aftermath of them. I was also disappointed by the lack of hockey action in the book, as a huge sports fan and hockey in particular I gravitate towards hockey romances and like to see a little action on the ice as well as the sheets.
