Single dad and star defenseman Matt LaRue lives for his kids and hockey. He's had one failed marriage and doesn't have any interest in going through that hell again. As conservative as they come, he can't comprehend his unexplainable attraction to a free-spirited female who changes hair color more often than his boys create new excuses to avoid doing their homework.

Violet Strider is fleeing the past. She has a new start, new identity, and is hiding a big secret. Matt and Vi are a classic case of opposites attract, but neither expects the attraction to extend beyond a few hot trysts, especially Vi. Only her heart isn't listening, and her head is following her heart down a path of no return. As Vi grows closer to Matt and his boys, she fears her secret could rip them apart.

Relationships are built on trust, and Vi's house of cards is about to take a tumble. Can Vi confront her past and finally put it behind her, while earning Matt's forgiveness?


Opposites attract … and steam up the house!! It’s always a pleasure to start a new Seattle Sockeyes book, but this one was even a little more sweet than usual. It has the forbidden aspect of having him fall for a bad girl type instead of the straight-laced wholesome woman his head wants hime to like, it has adorable kiddos that simply make the story and it has a wounded soul that got the short end of the stick from the people who should have protected her most … and all of those aspects rolled into one make for a great story!! It’s intriguing, it’s sweet, it’s super sexy and overall it’s really heartwarming. A little light on the hockey side of things, but overall a really great read!

When star defenseman Matt LaRue finds himself in desperate need of temporary help looking after his kids, he turns to his former nanny for suggestions. He’s not thrilled with her suggestion … her best friend, wild child Vi! He has nothing against her personally, but she’s most definitely not the type of person he wants around his impressionable boys … purple haired, pierced, tattooed … but what’s a guy to do when he has no other options??

Violet Strider can’t explain why she finds extremely irritating Matt LaRue attractive, he’s a jerk in the highest form who is always looking down his nose at her with a sneer on his face … but man does he tickle her fancy! Close quarters lead them to come to a temporary arrangement … hot sex, nothing more! When their steamy trysts lead to them feeling more than either of them ever expected, it makes for a dangerous situation when hearts become involved just as Vi’s secrets could tear Matt’s world apart.
